Abby Gillis is used to being called a promiscuous, uneducated whore. It’s all in a day’s work when you’re a stripper. Since her job allows her to support her siblings, 24-year-old Abby takes it all off in stride. She’s never had trouble keeping men at arm’s length – until she meets ER physician Chris Reneau, who is sexy, sweet and interested in more than what’s beneath her clothes. As their relationship unfolds, Abby becomes increasingly aware of the desire building in her for the first time, and of her yearning to be wanted by the one man who truly sees all of her.

Commitment-averse Chris finds himself in uncharted territory. He wants Abby, that’s clear, but he can’t accept not having all of her. As the distance between them erodes, he tries to convince Abby to give up stripping for a chance at something real.

As the two of them get closer, Abby realizes that truly baring it all has nothing to do with her body. Chris makes her feel more exposed than she ever has, and she has to grapple with what’s left when her notions about herself and those around her are stripped away, leaving only the naked truth.


My Review

5 of 5 Stripped

Stripped was one of those books that took me by surprise. I have read a lot of books where the bad girl gets the good guy and they run off into the sunset but what I really enjoyed about this book was the fact that both main characters had defects and were broken in one way or another but they worked together to be one. That is special to me because I hate when their is instant love. I know that it happens but dam can I have some bantering back and forth and some dam fore play between the characters.

I felt so bad for Abby because she had to raise her siblings and take care of her mother. Her mother has checked out and left Abby who is the oldest to take care of the family and provide for the family. Who does that? With all this going on in Abby's life she has no choice but to become a stripper in order to provide for the family and keep everything in order. So stripping she does and does it well making a lot of money and supporting her family. Then she meets Chris and her life changes.

Chris is an ER doctor and loves to help people. He is so kind and passionate and full of love for his patients. Working like a mad man in the ER he really has no time for love but when he meets Abby she does something to his heart. The only thing is Chris wants Abby but he does not do commitment but he knows deep down he wants all of Abby no matter what.

Can these two strip away all the bad and raw hurt feelings and become one? That is the question they will have to answer.
