Review: Stripped by Jasinda Wilder
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.

3.5 stars/ 5 stars
The story was nice and easy to read. Not too much drama, no complicated things, nothing to make you scream in agony.
The beginning was somewhat not expected for me. I was not ready for that and I definitelly did not liked it all.
I liked her struggle to stay in college, her passion and her response to the on or off-stage sessions.
It was a predictable book with a nice writing and it will absolutely make you giggle or laugh of frustration when Grey becomes too ‘young’ in her actions.
Grey is from Georgia with a pastor father and a great mom. She looses her mother in front of the ugliest creature ever: cancer.
She no longer knows what to do and where she belongs, so she leaves her father and go to L.A. to start her dream.
Everything is alright until she finds out that she needs a job in order ro pay for her last year in college.
Even though she has no friends there or family she ia still the best student ever, yet doomed to be a drop out. Until she fins the strip club.
She gets the job and she meets, by accident, Dawson, the hottest actor alive.
From here on is all about perception and the way you judge her actions.
I recommend the book for those of you searching something nice and easy to read, for those of you ready to let go for a few hours.
Happy readying, babes 🙂
