Stripped by Jasinda Wilder-Blog Tour


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.

My Review:
So, here's the deal. I love Jasinda Wilder. I don't keep this a secret and I am shameless in telling her so on Facebook. She is an amazing person, author, and makes you feel like you are her best friend, even if you've only chatted with her online. 

Now, about Stripped. The idea of a virgin stripper intrigued me from the start. How does that happen? Well, turns out that it is possible. Then there is the bad boy who wants to save her, and he's rich and HOT. So far, there is no reason NOT to read this book!

So, Grey has some tragedy happen, leaving her on her own. She does what she can to make her dreams come true. She chooses to get a job at a strip club to make the money she needs to pay for her education. Now, if you're looking for a strong, tough-as-nails, female lead, you won't really find it here. Grey is strong in her convictions, but she cries a lot. She is filled with guilt and shame for what she is doing and she doesn't have anyone to rely on or talk to. 

She meets Dawson while working but finds out he is also her assignment for her internship. She is mortified about him knowing about her job and worried that the owner of the company she is interning with will fire her for it. Dawson is trying to get back into Hollywood and will not let Grey quit. 

Because I don't believe in giving spoilers in my reviews, I'm going to stop there. I have to tell you that if you are not a Jasinda Wilder fan, this book will change your mind. I know I will read it over and over and over again because it is just that good. There aren't many books on that list, but this one is going there! 5 out of 5!
