"I may have had more lovers than you, and I may take my clothes off for countless women, but you are the only one who can strip me bare."

Do you ever stop loving someone just because they’re gone?

Five years ago, Ryan Pierce disappeared from Alana Remington’s life without a trace. He was the one she gave her heart to, her soul to — and her virginity to. So, imagine her surprise when she finds him dancing at one of NYC’s hottest male revues as ‘Jack the Stripper.’

Ryan never stopped loving Alana, and now that she has serendipitously dropped back into his life, he’s vowed never to lose her again. But being together has its costs, and challenges Alana isn’t sure she can handle. She finally has Ryan back. But how in the world is she supposed to share the love of her life with half of the women in New York City?

Strip Me Bare is a second chance, standalone romance. It contains angst, heat, humor, heartbreak, and one seductive male stripper who will not only have you handing over your panties, but also your heart.
You’ve been warned.

MY REVIEW

3.5 “We meet again” stars!!

M. Never shocked the heck out of me with the surprisingly warm, heartfelt, charming and sweet story found within the pages of Strip Me Bare. I found strippers, lawyers, broken hearts, injustice, heartache, family strain, family ties, and an amazingly wholesome attempt at a second chance at love.

Ryan and Alana fell in love five years ago. It was the stuff of legends, the type of love that everyone searches for. One night they went all the way and the next morning he was gone, without a trace, never to be heard from again. When they had met, Alana had an emotional wall made of steel, one that Ryan easily penetrated. His seeming abandonment erected those walls again almost instantly. In the present, Alana’s out with her cousin for her bachelorette party, which happens to be at the hottest strip club in NY. When her cousin is up on stage being treated to her own strip show, imagine their surprise when the stripper is none other than the love of Alana’s life - Ryan.

There was never a question of Ryan’s love. When he explained what had happened to keep them apart for the last five years, it was easy to forgive and understand his actions. Their love story was back on track, but there were a lot of obstacles standing in their way. However, somehow these two knew that if they stood together, if they concentrated on their everlasting love, that everything else would work out.

The characters were easy to like… Ryan most of all. I think I would have given my left nut to get his perspective. If I had nuts, that is. There were so many moments of hilarity and I enjoyed the ways that Ryan chose to show his affections. I asked myself repeatedly if I could be with a stripper and dream of happily ever after. If I could get past the many women who would see and touch his body. If I could see through his whoring past. Well, if the man was someone like Ryan... ;D
