Slade by Victoria Ashley

Genre: Erotic Romance

Published: June 2014

The Story: Self-proclaimed sex addict Slade is a foul-mouthed stripper who thinks he can get any girl he wants, until he meets Aspen. She's not into Slade, who apparently can't handle rejection well because he makes her his conquest. There are mixed reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, although the book has an overall high rating. Positive reviews praise this book for being filthy in all the right ways, but reviewer Elyse over at Smart Bitches could not be convinced. Regardless, the book has been on the NYT bestseller list for multiple weeks. Some readers love male strippers with a cursing problem, apparently!
