Taking It Off by Claire Kent

Can’t get enough Magic Mike? Let bestselling author Claire Kent introduce you to Matt Stokes, the sexy-as-sin male stripper and club owner who knows what it really means to bare everything.

Preschool teacher Elizabeth Marks isn’t exactly thrilled to be attending a college friend’s bachelorette party at a male strip joint. The sights—screaming women, half-naked hunks—are just as sleazy as she expected, with one exception: the man standing at the back, radiating sensual heat despite being fully clothed. When Elizabeth takes refuge outside, he chases her down and dares her to stay. It turns out that her mystery man is the owner—and, as tonight’s headliner, the one guy Elizabeth wouldn’t mind seeing naked.

Matt Stokes lives his life one day, one dance at a time. But as he challenges Elizabeth to get in touch with the passionate, impulsive woman behind her prim façade, she brings out another side of him as well. This girl isn’t just another pretty face—or paying customer—and Matt can’t help wanting more. Onstage, he’s used to exposing his body. Now Matt will have to expose his heart. Because when it comes to real love, that’s the one striptease that matters.

I enjoyed this story about a girl challenged to take a walk on the wild-side. She is a strange mix, with her seeming to act out of character at times – but it made the point well. She at least had some fight in her, which Matt certainly knew how to exploit it! It was an easy read, with a few surprises along the way, and a desirable outcome. It does remind one that what is visible on the outside does not necessarily reflect what is underneath. She certainly found her inner sex goddess – at least with Matt!

(I might add that I once (reluctantly) went to such a bachelorette party, and can report that no such adventures befell me ... no Matt to try and make me change my mind, more's the pity!)

Along the lines of Magic Mike in book form, Taking it Off is a fun read! Elizabeth is from the upscale side of the tracks. While at the strip club for her friend’s bachelorette party she is intrigued by the man who isn't taking it off, the owner of the club, Matt Stokes. Matt comes from the wrong side of the tracks, with his strip club and junkie mother. Matt is not who Elizabeth needs in her life. Especially with her daddy running for mayor!! The attraction is more than mutual and can’t be denied. They can’t be good together but they also can’t help what they want. There were some tender sweet moments when Matt lets his walls down and some very hot scenes that are well worth the read! I enjoyed the characters and their backstory. The book flowed well and was an easy read.
