I knew at a very young age that I wasn't normal. I may look normal. I may act normal. But I am not normal, not in the head at least. Wait, that sounds bad.

When I started kindergarten, I was able to pick out all 50 states on a map. By first grade, I knew all of the names of all of the students and teachers in my entire school. My dad and I always watched football on

Have I said how much I don't like that there are half stars? Because for me, this is firmly 3.5 stars.

This is the story of Pike and Violet. Pike is a male stripper. Or is he? You have to read to find out ;0) Violet is a bank teller who has an amazing memory. They both look forward to Wednesdays when he comes into the bank and deposits all his tips, yet neither of them have the nerve to talk to the other. Finally, they bump into each other and there starts their fall into love.

***** 5 Cranky Stars *****

MD Saperstein delivers a story both funny and heart warming. Filled with humor, hot sex, and quirky characters, it is a perfect book to inhale over a weekend.

Our hero, Jordan (or Pike to his friends) works in South Miami, but longs to return to the north side where his old job, friends, and family are. Our heroine, the often feisty Violet, also lives there.

Violet’s life is complex. She’s a combination of innocent and crazy-neurotic. She’s a self-declared ‘frump’ and eve
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
The truth of things is not always in black and white, on and off, right or wrong. There is a grey matter to things. Do you have the mental fortitude to take that step in a forward direction and see everything for what it is? Or what you perceive them to be?

This was the issue behind most of what went on with Violet and Pike. Both have a life they want, need, desire, and then the one they actually have. After mentally and physically skirting around with each other over the time of brief weekly con

This was a really cute story!! Charming, good looking bachelor meets neurotic, lovably nerd!! Oh god, Violet was something else!! She had me cracking up and Jordan ( Pike to most) well he had me swooning all over the place. I tell you this was a real honest to good man!! And violet knows she has a good thing with Jordan, it's awesome! I hope there a men like Jordan in the world. He left an impression.

The level of drama was very mild and perfectly fitting for the feel good rom/com setting this b

This was a cute story. Nerdy banker girl, hot stripper... what could they possibly have in common? It seems these two had plenty in common except one little thing. Violet could remember everything that she saw, heard, anything. This seemed like a flaw to her, but could come in handy at times.
JT is a stripper, but for reasons he can't really tell Violet. He comes home every week just to see her at the bank. That seemed to be the highlight of his week.

The Naked Truth is a really quick, fun read. Although the plot is obvious from the synopsis alone, the characters are so well-developed you can't help but fall in love with them. The saying 'what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive' is definitely applicable here, with the tangle of characters and situations thrown together.

I absolutely adored Violet with all her idiosyncracies. The direct address to the reader added an air of intimacy to the narrative, strengthening the

3.5 Stars

This was an okay story but the writing style was different and it made it very difficult for me to get into the story. It’s written almost diary style, which I didn’t much care for.

Violet is the oldest of 3 girls in her family and she has Hyperthymesia, the ability to recall anything she’s ever seen, heard, or experienced. Violet is a teller at a bank and her favorite day of the week is Wednesday when the oh-so-hot, Jordan Pike comes in to make his weekly deposit. Pike has a dream of b

This was my first book by M.D. Saperstein so I was sure what to expect. The blurb had me from the beginning and I was eager for the release. I have to say that I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. This book was funny, sweet, and sexy. I loved Violet and Pike and the relationship that they have.

Violet is the funny and feisty lead character and the stuff that comes out of her mouth is hilarious. She doesn't get out much and the highlight of her week is Wednesdays when the sexy Mr. Taylor comes

"Naked Truth" by M.D. Saperstein. What a fun story! I found myself smiling and chuckling throughout. There isn't a lot of angst and it's a good old fashioned love story. I adored Jordan - he's sexy and sweet and ooh-la-la scrumptious! Violet, although confident, is a bit vulnerable, due to her special ability. Together they are smokin' hot! I did think Violet could be a tad stubborn and a bit hard on others at times but Jordan handles her well. I enjoyed Jordan's "stripper" job. I found myself i ...more

I am a huge fan of M.D. Saperstein's books and this one did not disappoint! I am just like everyone else, I have been impatiently, patiently waiting for the Naked Truth to come out. I LOVE Pike and Violet! M.D. Saperstein has a way of writing that will immediately suck you in and you won't want to put the book down! There were so many parts of the book that I was literally laughing out loud! I love Pike and Violet's chemistry! You felt that it was immediate and palpable.

This is my first book by this author and what a delight it was. Such an easy book to slide into, fun, sexy, witty, charming you name it then it was included.

The two main characters Violet and Pike are made for each other but the romance and chemistry has to flow a while before they realise it. Their families made great back up characters.

I loved the humour but also the slightly naive purity which then suddenly dives straight into the stripper world and back in a heartbeat. Pike could strip for

This was a nice, fun read. Jordan has developed a crush on the girl at the bank, but never had the guts to talk to her. Violet is a teller at the bank, crushing on the guy that comes in every Wednesday and visits the window next to hers. She has a hidden talent to remember everything and it tends to come out randomly without her realizing it. The couple has a cute connection with their love of movie quotes, and its the type of relationship that I'd love to have... except all the secrets. Jordan ...more

This story has some really great characters that you will find yourself loving easily. Violet and Pike are sweet at times, hot at times, and funny at times and all of this adds up to make it an entertaining read. Pike is definitely not at the place in his life he wants to be at and certainly not doing what he thought he would be doing with his life, but is working to try and change that. Violet is a bank teller who waits for a certain day and time each week so she can watch the hottie come in an ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through Wicked Reads.

I did like this story, but the blurb quite literally summed up the whole book. It was everything the blurb said, but not much more. I expected a little more intrigue with Violet's ability and maybe a little more action from Pike's side of things, but it wasn't there. I really liked their chemistry, the witty exchanges, and their romance was definitely entertaining. Overall, I found it to be an okay read.

To say that I was surprised how much I really loved Naked Truth would be an understatement. I had a feeling that I would like it, I just didn’t know that I would end up loving it. Sometimes even a book whore can start to get burnt out when you have a ton of books that you need to read but just aren’t feeling any of them. Jordan Pike, the sexy man that he is, changed all that for me. Violet will have you loving her from the start, she is hilarious and I love how s

This book will have you laughing. A lot of humor. It's written in the first person point of view, but you do get dual points of view. I liked the characters. They're quirky, but loveable. I really liked Violet. She has Hyperthymesia, she literally remembers everything so she's on shy side when it comes to the opposite sex. Jordan is undercover as a stripper. You know this book is going to be an interesting book. I liked the way Jordan treated Violet. He makes he feel special. Only problem he kee ...more

This was actually a really sweet love story. Judging from the book cover and the description, I expected it to be a bit raunchier, but the book is actually very tastefully written. The storyline is fresh with plenty of plot twists and excitement that kept me captivated. The characters were very complex, emotional and very realistic! The romance was tastefully done and while still very steamy it wasn't too dirty (even though there was this one part that blew my mind!). I loved the unique personal ...more

Funny and mysterious

Meet Jordan Pike. Everything isn't always what it seems. Jordan hates the work he's doing and to make it worse he has to hide it from the quirky woman he fell in love with Violet. They have the best sense of humor and all their playfulness will keep you laughing. The sexy times are hot as hell.
What happens when you find out everything you thought you knew about the man you love is a lie? Can you move e past and forgive? Don't wait to jump into this book.

Violet and Pike were perfect for each other. Violet is a teller in the local bank and has the ability to recall any detail no matter how large or small. Wednesday is her favorite day of the week because that is when Pike comes in to make his weekly deposit of tips from his job as a stripper. These two share a fun and sexy chemistry that was entertaining to read and kept me laughing throughout. This story was unique because there was very little angst keeping them apart and the true romance of th ...more

If you are looking for a sappy, sexy short read, this is the book for you. It's got interesting twists throughout the story, but it's still so sweet it will make your teeth hurt.

This was a cute story with likable characters Jordan Pike and Violet Carmichael. They weren't shallow, but the story itself wasn't particularly deep or emotionally provoking. There was a very predictable feel to it, hardly any angst, with everything moving quickly, including the resolution and outcome of the story. ...more
