review stripped

Yes i chose a boom box graphic because come onnnn how could i not? 😀

33009919BLURB: Skilled, sculpted, and sexy, the men of adult entertainment are the kind of guys a woman reserves for her fantasies, not her reality. But is there more to these professional hotties than meets the eye?…

The day Robyn Flores meets Zac Fallon is one of those days. You know, when you’re already late for work. Mostly because you haven’t really slept since your best friend abandoned you for her fiancé and her exponentially better life. The kind of day you drag yourself to the cleaners to pick up your laundry, only to discover you’ve got the wrong bag—Star Spangled sequined thong, anyone? So Robyn is definitely not ready for the ridiculously gorgeous guy at her front door, except that they have each other’s clothes. But then, is any woman ever ready to meet the love of her life?

There’s just one problem: Zac Fallon is not the love of Robyn’s life. Zac knows, despite the all-too-intimate dinner they share, he doesn’t have a shot at her. Because the next time Zac sees Robyn, he’s front and center of the male revue headlining her best friend’s bachelorette party. So much for wooing the pretty schoolteacher, much less impressing her old-fashioned family, with his upstanding lifestyle. Now he’s only got one way to win his dream girl. It’s gonna be the steamiest, most irresistible seduction she’s ever seen. And this time it will be no act

Release date: August 28th



Stripped was one of my most anticipated books. I’ve read Zoraida’s YA and loved. So this was my first romance by her (under the Zoey Castile name) and it did not disappoint. The way Fallon and Robyn meet had me cracking up right away. The laundry mixes up their bags and she’s a bit confused about Fallon’s red, white and blue thong lol. It was such a great opening. Draws you right in to wanting to learn more.

When we meet Robyn she is a messsss. But i loved her immediately. and Fallon my sweet, sexy Fallon. Heart eyes alll over the place for this guy. HE HAS A HUSKY PUPPY NAMED YAZ!!

Now when they meet the banter and chemistry is soo great Fallon is a total goner over Robyn immediately. I love when the dude falls first 🙂 He was so nervous around her !! Robyn was correct. Fallon is cute and ridiculous. and i love him. So so much. He genuinely loves stripping and getting to meet his crew was great. The behind the scenes of their rehearsals and getting ready for their shows was so well done. We really get a sense of the family, of the close knit relationships these guys have.


And after Fallon my fave guy was his bestie Aiden who is getting his own book next whoop!

Robyn is kinda failing at being maid of honor to her bestie Lily and while they do talk out their strained relationship in the end I would have liked to see more of support system for Robyn. I mean to be fair she does lament how she didnt try to make friends at work apart from Lily. But Fallon had such a great support network in his crew I just sorta wanted the same for Robyn.

I also loooved the song titles at the beginning of each new chapter. So perfect and clearly well thought out because they mirror what happens in each chapter perfectly.
Listen the cuteness factor coupled with the steamy factor in this book was just sooo very well balanced and good??? Their date to the amusement part was so sweet then became steamy and i meaaan 10/10 would get steamy with Fallon on a ride. yes please!


My emotions had emotions I tell you. There was soooo much emotion in the sexy time scene i didnt know what to do with myself ahhhhh. Fallon thinking about how he feels about Robyn and vice versa in that moment was golden. The execution of that. So well done. But the entire time Fallon is keeping from Robyn that the crew is leaving for Vegas earlier than planned cuz he doesn’t want Robyn to end their summer thing before that. So I was sooo on edge but was grateful their wasn’t some biiig explosion when she found out. My poor heart lol.
Fallon brings Robyn into his world, she comes to see him and his guys strip for the first time and talk about nerves! But it goes well. On the flipside Fallon feels out of place in Robyn’s world when she invites him to the wedding. and of course Principal Annoying tries to ruin everything (GET WRECKED LUKAS NO ONE WANTS YOU HERE!!) but they get their HEA after some tiny bumps along the way.

I was super satisfied by the ending. Yessss Robyn girl do ya ting! *cough* Anyways i’m eagerly awaiting book 2. This was a great start to this series.
