Title: Stripped
Author: Jasinda Wilder
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

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.


Stripped starts out with Grey being a young girl who grew up with a very strict father, and her mother was really the only person she had be there for her. But when her mother dies from cancer, Grey and her father can not seem to be together any longer, so Grey leaves to follower her dreams in L.A.

Grey never knew it would be so difficult to survive. Now it's been two years since she's even spoken with her father, and she's having financially problems with the school. So when the only place left hiring is a strip club, she takes the plunge even though it's killing her inside. But at this horrible club she actually meets a man who could change everything for her, a man she could actually love, and she's terrified. 

I really did like the book. It was okay. I liked how Grey and Dawson where together, that was really awesome. And I really enjoyed how the author shows the daily struggle Grey goes through as she's trying to survive but she feels like she's loosing who she is by stripping. This book has lots of drama, and romance! So I do recommend it, and I'm glad I got to read it!
