[Short Review] Stripped, by: Jasinda Wilder

(Stripped #1)
by: Jasinda Wilder


So how did I get myself into this situation, you ask? Simple: desperation. When you're faced with being homeless and hungry or taking off your clothes for money, the choice is easier than you'd imagine. That doesn't make it easy, though. Oh no. I hate it, in fact. There's nothing I'd like more than to quit and never go into another bar again, never hear the techno beat pulsing in my ears again, never feel the lecherous gazes of horny men again.

Then, one day, I meet a man. He's in my club, front and center. He watches me do my routine, and his gaze is full of hunger. Not the kind of desire I'm used to though. It's something different. Something hotter, deeper, and more possessive. I know who he is; of course I do. Everyone knows who Dawson Kellor is. He's People Magazine's Sexiest Man alive. He's the hottest actor in Hollywood. He's the man hand-picked for the role of Rhett Butler in the long-awaited remake of Gone With the Wind.

He's the kind of man who can have any woman in the entire world with a mere crook of his finger. So what's he doing looking at me like he has to have me? And how do I resist him when he looks at me with those intoxicating, changeable, quicksilver eyes?

I'm a virgin, and he's an American icon of male sexuality. I'm a stripper, and he's a man used to getting anything and everything he wants. And he wants me. I know I should say no, I know he's the worst kind of player…but what my mind knows, my body and my heart may not.

And then things get complicated.

I love it!

The sypnosis made it justice. Our main character, Grey, is just the perfect little girl from a small town in south raised by religious people. Where that goes? After Grey's mother died, he rebels and goes away to make her dreams come true. Things don't go as expected and what she turn to? Strip to win money and move on in life. Its a good story, with a lot of kinds of ways that could go. When Dawson comes to the picture, I loved him from the first time and fell in love all over again over and over.
"He's brought me breakfast. In bed. And he's done it shirtless. Women of America, be jealous."
I cannot lie. The book was slow at the beginning and then it so fast that I got lost in pages. The book was short and very rush at the end. But, I still love it. The characters were perfect, even the annoying bitch of her roomie. I got no more words. I love the book and you should love it too if you get past the slow part and have an open mind. Enjoy it then.
