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.

it, or see it – I remember it. No exceptions.

Naked Truth is the first book by M.D. Saperstein that I have read. I thought it was an enjoyable, quick read complete with engaging characters. Violet is a sweet, beautiful girl, and she appears to be just as normal as other women her age…except she has Hyperthymesia. If she sees something, she remembers it ALWAYS!!! Pike is a stripper in a club, but you get the feeling he’s not your run of the mill stripper. Saperstein doesn’t keep you in suspense too long as to what it is. Pike goes into the bank every Wednesday to make deposits, and to see the lovely Violet. Yet, he goes to the teller next to her because he’s afraid he will embarrass himself in front of Violet. Violet has a massive crush on Pike too. A chance meeting outside in the rain finally has these two lovebirds talking to one another, and not too long after, they are dating. Violet has no idea what Pike does, and Pike has no idea about Violet’s memory. Will they still feel the same about each other once they discover their secrets?
I really liked the premise of the story. I also liked the combinations used in the stories. There was romance yet mystery, and there were some really erotic scenes yet there was also a sweetness between Violet and Pike as well. The characters are well-developed, and I loved the relationships they had with their families, with the exception of Violet’s sister, Rose. UGH!!!!
I hope there will be future books about Pike and Violet. I could see these two combining their skills and having an entire series written about them, Violet using her memory, and Pike using his sleuthing skills! Then, you add in their families, it would be great!

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.
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!

romance and erotica, but I don’t discriminate – a good book is a good book, no
matter the genre.
