Naked Truth by M.D. Saperstein Blog Tour


Violet

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 TV together. When I turned seven, he took me to my first Miami Dolphins game. I started calling the plays even before they were made. And by the time I was 10, I could tell you what happened on any day of my life without thought. I had total recall, no hesitation, no conscious thought.

I’m not autistic. I’m not a savant or a genius. It’s more than a case of photographic memory. In fact, I don’t memorize anything. I have Hyperthymesia. Plain and simple: If I live it, hear it, or see it – I remember it. No exceptions.

Pike

I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be a cop. Not just any cop, but a detective. Chasing bad guys and taking down mobsters. But like my good buddy, Mick, says, “You can’t always get want you want.”

So instead of arresting criminals and keeping the streets safe, I am dancing in a dingy club, making a living shaking my ass and pulling dollar bills out of my crack. Not the life I grew up wanting to lead. Not what I expected or hoped for myself.

But maybe if I wait it out. If I hang tight, it will all be worth it in the end. I will get what I came for and move on. I will earn my future and pave my own way. What is that he says? “If you try sometimes…you get what you need.” From your lips to God’s ears, Mick.

**STANDALONE. No Cliffhanger! Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is recommended for readers over the age of 18.**

I turn to get into my car and I can feel Jordan at my back. He’s so close, I can feel his body heat. It’s clear that he doesn’t want this night to end as much as I don’t. I’m dying for him to kiss me dirty, but I know when the time is right it’s going to be magical. I slide into the driver’s seat and he leans in for one last kiss. This time on my cheek. He’s getting closer! He stands back up and starts to back away, hands in surrender.

“You better go before I lose control. I’m barely holding on here, Violet.”

I smile. Just his admission is enough. But then I see his hand trying to discreetly adjust himself, and now I know my earlier thoughts were correct. I’m scandalized and pleased at the same time. Knowing - seeing proof - that he is turned on because of me, lights my body on fire, and my panties are suddenly very wet.

“Goo…Good night!” I say one last time, stumbling over my words and too embarrassed by my body’s reaction to make eye contact. I really need to go before I do or say something stupid.

“Soon, sweetheart,” is the last thing I hear from his lips, and I spend the night wondering what exactly he is promising.

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 becoming a detective but in the meantime is stuck working as a male stripper. The only bright spot in his week is seeing the Violet, the woman whom he longs for but hasn’t gotten up the nerve to ask out. He knows that Violet isn’t one-night stand material, she’s a forever type of girl and he’d like to give that a try. The chemistry between the two is undeniable and though it’s slow going in the beginning, once they get into things it steams up pretty quickly.

This was a sweet story and I enjoyed Violet and Pike’s banter back and forth, it’s what kept me reading through until the end. I also love that I didn’t catch on to Pike’s “secret” until pretty far into the book, I like when authors are able to keep things a surprise.

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.

I have to admit that I am not usually into books with large sections of inner monologue, but here it feels more like a discourse with the reader, and so somehow worked better. The humour helped, for sure! If you are looking for a sweet romantic read, with plenty of funnies, and a quirky lead couple, then this would be a good buy. I wasn't convinced that they behaved their ages, being genuinely immature, rather than just choosing to be so – but if you ignore their stated ages, it is easy to ignore. The old issue of lack of communication is definitely given a run for its money here. I enjoy reading something different, and this worked for me. I am curious to see what Ms. Saperstein writes next, as she has set the bar at a cute and quirky level.



Hi! My name is M.D. Saperstein. I am currently a stay at home mom with my two gorgeous kids. I wasn't always a full time mom, though. After graduating from the University of Florida - Go Gators! - I attended law school at Stetson University. I spent the next 10 years practicing law. I also spent some time counseling mental health patients in an outpatient psychiatric hospital. But, until having my own children, my most rewarding job by far was licensing families to receive abused and neglected foster children.

So, that brings us to today. In my spare time, while my children were napping, I started editing novels for other authors. The more I edited, the more ready I felt to write my own. I just needed a new and exciting story line. Once Hey There, Delilah was conceived, the ball starting rolling very quickly. I hooked up with fellow author Andria Large, and we decided to tackle it together. Best decision ever!

I spend most of my free time with my husband and children. But when I get some "me" time, I love to read. Mostly romance and erotica, but I don't discriminate - a good book is a good book, no matter the genre.
