What do you get when you mix a bottle of tequila, a single mom moonlighting as a stripper, and her sinfully sexy boss with an impulsive side?
Married. You get married.
Rich. Demanding. Hot. Crazy.
That was Beckett Cruz in a nutshell.
Not to mention wild, determined, dangerous, and forbidden.
He was my boss—and, after a drunken moment of insanity, my new husband.
An annulment was impossible... so was keeping him.
I was taking my daughter and leaving, determined to give her a quieter life.
But Beckett Cruz had never taken no for an answer.
And he wasn't about to take mine.
What happens in Vegas... might just keep you there.
(STRIPPED DOWN is a standalone, erotic romance novel. It is a companion to STRIPPED BARE, although it isn't necessary to read it first.)
Holy Hot Cover Batman! *swoon* Ok, I will admit, I saw the cover of this book, and didn't give two shits about the blurb. I just knew I wanted it now! So I signed up to do a review. Then read the blurb and was like, yeah. I need this in my life like yesterday!
Hot cover... CHECK. Intriguing blurb... Check. After
reading devouring this book, did I love it? YES I damn well did! It had errrythang! ;) A great set of characters, interesting story line that wasn't mega predictable, witty dialogue. Hot steamy sex scenes.... Oh yeah, this book had it all!
Cassie is our leading lady, and she had a baby young. In order to provide for her family she did what she had to do, and that was working at a strip club. As a single mom, I understood where she was coming from in this. I haven't personally ever worked in that field, but that has more to do with the fact that A. I don't have the body and B. If I were to publicly dance.... well lets just say it wouldn't be pretty ;) Lol. Back to the matter at hand. Cassie wasn't happy with her job, but knew she needed to save as much money as she could if she wanted to get out.
Beckett is the owner, and if you've read the first book I believe you've met him, (I have yet to read that one so I don't know for sure... don't fret it's up next ;)) He's also Cassie's boss. And hot. HOT! HAWT!!! Are you getting that he's freaking HOT?! Moving on... One night at work, Cassie isn't having the best night what with all kinds of stress on her mind, so Beckett calls her into his office to talk.... and maybe have a few drinks to relax. Well.... they are in Vegas and they do have the secret hots for each other soooo... Yeah they wake up married!
Due to consummating the marriage, they can't have it annulled. Divorce it is then. But once they start spending more time together, they start to realize there might actually be real feelings developing. This is where I have to taper off with the recap portion of this review. I don't want to give too much away.
It was a really great book and I loved every steamy hot minute of it. The author has a great writing style that really fit with me. Not to mention that the entire story just came across so realistic and there wasn't any part where I wanted to do an eye roll or toss the kindle. I wish I'd read the first book first so I'd know about Mia and West's story, but I didn't feel lost at any point when they appeared in this book. Anywho... This was a great read and I highly recommend it! :)
Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy - unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
