At twenty years old Kylie finds herself in a situation she never could've imagined...
She was abandoned by her husband with their five month old baby and a mountain of debt.
She's forced to look for a job, but as a high school drop-out her choices are limited.
Kylie had no choice but to become a stripper...
While working one night, Kylie feels a connection with a handsome stranger.
When she runs into him the next day, he asks to take her out, but she knows she doesn't belong in his perfect world.
The problem is, Evan can't seem to get the sexy stripper out of his mind.
He knows she doesn't belong there and something about her makes him feel alive. But when her past comes knocking, his trust issues cause him to run.
Will Kylies past continue to sabotage her? Or will she be able to break free once and for all?
You think you have read them all before, wealthy sexy as hell guy meets ordinary girl. Then there's Stripped. The one thing that stood out for me about Kylie and Evan is that they are real. Kylie is young with a baby. Couple that with a jerk husband that walks out on them and you have a scared young mother that will do anything for her child. I don't want to say she is naive, because she isn't but she's......innocent in her own way. Her hesitation about Evan are justifiable, her indecision about their relationship is believable and the love for her daughter is apparent.
Evan is, well, Evan. I will be brutally honest, there were times I didn't like him very much. Oh he was still sexy as hell, but damn can he be a real ass when he isn't thinking! It was nice to see a gu act like a guy. Jealous, not always sure of every decision he made, insecure about the relationship and sometimes, just being a downright ass. But a lovable ass none the less.
This is one of those books that just when you think everything works out, BAM! Reality slaps the characters in the face with yet another obstacle. That's life, and these two handled it as real as you can imagine. Their arguments had me nodding in agreement with both of them. I mean, who hasn't said something out of anger? Who hasn't stormed off before hearing the whole story? That's what I liked about this story, it was life, just a bit sexier.
Kylie and Evan together are hot. You can cut the sexual tension with a knife. You want nothing but happiness for them. Especially Kylie, she's been through enough. Evan isn't without his own struggles though. Overbearing parents, trying to be molded in to something you're not, and a conniving woman hell bent on doing what she has to to be the billionaire's wife.
This story shows the reader that sometimes you need to take a stand. Fight for what you want, and don't give up. It shows that even in times of desperation, there is hope that things will get better, if you persevere.
I loved Kylie and Evan, and I'm sure you will too.
