Stripped by Jasinda Wilder ~Katie's Review~ 5*****Star Review

~Katie's Review~


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 have to start off by saying that anything by Jasinda will never be disappointing, but I am sure if any of you have read her books you already know this.  I personally found this to be an amazing read.  It covers all of the emotions that you need in a great book. 

Grey is a preacher's daughter.  Her father is beyond strict and she is sheltered to a fault.  Her father is a Baptist preacher and he lives by the Word.  Poor Grey has no room for error when it comes to her father.  He is extremely unreasonable.  Then again that I my opinion.  I am not a preachers child.  I get the whole no sex before marriage thing.  Let's look at this, this way.  Are you going to go to a store buy a pair of shoes without trying them on?  What if when you get home they are too small and don't fit right?  Are you going to wear them the rest of your life uncomfortable?  No, I didn't think so.  That is my theory on that.  Anyway, I am getting off track here.  Grey, yes.  She is a sweet southern Georgia Peach.  While Grey is in high school she takes on dancing that is her love.  That is the only way for her to express her feelings, through dance.  She also takes a liking to film class and when she is accepted to USC her father is beside himself.  Then tragedy hits and a family falls apart.

Once in LA Grey is on her own.  She finds out that the scholarship she had to attend school is not going to cover what she thought it wood and is now trying desperately to find a job to cover tuition, dorm and food.  She has applied everywhere she could an no one is hiring. That is when a bus ride comes across Erotic Nights and she has no other choice but to strip or starve.  The poor thing she was like a fish out of water.  A girl that never even kissed a boy is now forced to strip to pay her way through college.  This is where my heart broke for her.  Other times I wanted to slap her, period.

Dawson Kellor, what an amazing beautiful man.  That is all I need to say.  I'm just kidding I wouldn't leave you hanging there like that.  Dawson is an actor,  he is going to star as Rhett in the film Gone With the Wind.  He is your typically hot male hero.  He is tall, dark hair and mood changing eyes and built like a shit brick house.  Dawson is just coming back to the acting scene after rumors were spread of his uncontrolled lifestyle.  He is finally back and ready for business.  This is where he meets Grey.  I have to say Dawson will be one of those book boyfriends that you will never forget.  He is sweet, loving, caring, sexy and HOTTTTT!!!

Talk about opposites attract.  They are polar opposites but the magnetism between these two is unreal.  It is scorching HOT!   I have to say I am really happy that I had the opportunity to receive an ARC for an honest review.  I have not read one of Jasinda's books that I have not loved.  I would like to read more on Dawson and Grey and hear more of their future together.
