I'm not sure where to start with this review. It was SOOOOOO good and made me feel the feels, like whoa! It's one of those books that sticks with you. I really enjoyed these characters and quickly fell in love with them. Macey's life hasn't been easy and she's trying to do better for her daughter. She runs into more bad luck when she runs back into Finn. When she sees him again, she knows she needs to accept his deal. But it's just that, a deal.
Finn liked her back in high school, but then they went their separate ways. He has a sixth sense about Macey and doesn't want to let her go when he sees her again. He's drawn to her and slowly but surely, his defenses start slipping around her. He's just trying to help a friend and figures he may as well get something out of it too.
I enjoyed how Heidi gave us their history bit by bit and not all at once. I liked getting to know them and watch them interact. Their journey was hot (like, FIYAH!), sweet, sassy and so delicious. I was completely immersed in their world and I didn't want to leave. Heidi's words did a great job of capturing this reader. I loved Finn and enjoyed watching him protect Macey and war with himself as to his true feelings.

They don’t call it the Strip for nothing. . . .
In this sinfully sexy Las Vegas romance from bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin, a man who has it all reunites with a woman who takes it all off.
Living in Sin City, Finn McCormick is no stranger to one-night stands, but the last person he expects to find losing big on the casino floor is a former high school fling. Even though Macey Webster’s clearly down on her luck, she’s still a knockout, and she’s dressed like a stripper—because she is one. Drunk off an unfamiliar cocktail of lust, pity, and compassion, Finn offers to pay Macey’s debts if she cuddles up to him around town . . . and does whatever he wants between the sheets.
Macey came to Vegas for one reason only: money. She’s got a young daughter to support, and the tips really are bigger in Vegas. But when she blows her earnings on blackjack, her guardian angel is the rich boy who once stole her heart and never called her back. Although Macey would love to turn the tables on Finn, she can’t afford to refuse his proposition—and soon she’s enjoying herself much more than she cares to admit. Macey’s used to baring her flesh, but baring her soul will take far more courage.
