First off let me just say, the characters that fill the pages of Naked Angel by Logan Belle are a diverse crowd. This novel has a lot to offer, a great storyline, characters with depth, and a good "bad girl". "Naked Angel" was a new genre for me and not one of my favorites, but this book completely changed how I feel about the glitz and glamour of the burlesque life onstage. I found that the conflict had me worrying about how things would end for Mallory and Alec.
Now this book is part of a series and there are moments where I was left wondering what had previously happened with these characters. This book could be read out of order, though I would recommend that you start at the beginning of the series with “Blue Angel”. Mallory and Alec were a steaming hot couple that in the beginning and end stole the show. I should also mention that many other characters get their point of view told as well. Nadia Grant is an injured ballerina, Gemma Kole is striving to have a successful clothes designing career, and Violet is a rival dancer and all of these characters and more have their own complex stories to tell. I really enjoyed the flipping between characters because it gave "Naked Angel" a quick and fun pace.
Mallory is now in charge of the new Burlesque club The Painted Lady. She knows how to have a wickedly good time on and off stage, but things are bound to change in this continuation of her and Alec's life. Alec has been with Mallory for four years and is ready to fully commit to the relationship that they share. He has devised a plan to propose to Mallory onstage in front of the entire burlesque crowd.
When news gets out that The Painted Lady is the hottest new club in town enemies stir and things heat up for all who are involved! Is there any chance for there to be a happy ending, when so many are so close to having it all?
Naked Angel is the third novel in the burlesque-inspired trilogy, Blue Angel. The books are set in New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, and explore an ordinary young woman's self-discovery and sexual awakening through the world of burlesque.
It's the biggest night of Mallory Dale's life. She's unveiling her sexy new burlesque club, The Painted Lady, and her boyfriend has a thrilling surprise for her. After four wild years, Alec is ready to propose, and he does it in her favourite place - onstage. Life is sweet - until Alec asks her to retire her pasties for good. But can she give up her boas in the name of happily ever after? Mallory isn't the only one torn between bliss onstage and off. An injury forced ballerina Nadia Grant to hang up her toe shoes, so now she's perfecting the art of the striptease and whipping the crowd at The Painted Lady into a frenzy. But one man is outraged - the man Nadia loves. Meanwhile, the club's financial benefactor is endangering his marriage - and the business - when he begins a sizzling affair with a young costume designer. Just when they're so close to having it all, will the stars of The Painted Lady lose everything?
