I just finished reading Stripped and I liked it. Kylie's husband Brad left her high and dry with a 5 month old. With no word from him except letters she has to take care of her and her child.  Bills are getting behind and she is about to lose everything she decides to drop her pride and sacrifice her dignity and becomes a stripper.  This is what you see a year later and she is trying to make ends meet. Still not a word from Brad but she has a good support system, her friend Sarah and her landlord.  She's works to pay bills. This wasn't her dream job but what is she going to do?  One night whole stripping she meets Evan. She has never taken pride in stripping, always feeling dirty so she is surprised  that she feels anything for him.  He is very persistent and wants to get to know her better.  It doesn't bother her that she has a kid.  What bothers him is when he finds out that she is married.
Will Evan forgive her for this deceit?  You will have to read and see.
I enjoyed the story. I thought that it flowed well and that it was a good take on the whole stripper/millionaire aspect.  I liked that she was a young wed mother and that she showed a lot of vulnerability but was still strong. It takes alot of courage to do what you have too to take care of your kids. It's not glamorous by no means but it's rewarding.  I liked Evan. I thought that his character worked well with hers. For him to want to help take care of her and Emma, sigh!  He's got my vote! The one thing I didn't like was the going back and forth. Communicate people!!!  Lord. I just wanted to pull my hair out at times!  I get why it was done.  It's a story so you have to have conflict but how many times do you gotta leave someone???  I still enjoyed it though.
Their chemistry in and out of the bedroom was hot!  Evan you dirty boy you!  Didn't know you had it in you!  At times though he was sorta cheesy. I would have laughed in his face for some of the things he says is what it is. Kylie too acted more childish at certain points. I had to keep remembering that duh! She's 20. I'm sure I acted like that too but still she's a mother. I just thought she would be more grown up.
All in all I still enjoyed the story. I wanted to be able to see how it ended. It's ended well.   You gotta read this too. I think you will like it too!!

Riley thought she was in love… She thought she found the perfect guy until his aggressive behavior became too much for her to handle.

Zander, a sexy voiced lead singer and guitar player, had his sights set on Riley… Even though she continued to push him away. Riley was guarded and hesitant when it came to bad boys. After all, it was a bad boy who shattered her once before. But Riley soon realizes that Zander isn't who she thought he was, and he may be just what she needs. Will the love that grows between them be enough to hold them together? Or will the heartache they suffer drive a wedge between them forever? This book contains sexual content and is meant for mature audiences.

BT ~ Point of Redemption by Stacey Lynn

Title: Point of Redemption (Nordic Lords MC, #2)
Author: Stacey Lynn
Publication Date: July 30, 2014
Lies. Heartbreak. Betrayal. No one knew the devastation of those three words more than Faith Winston and five years ago, she endured every one of them. All she wanted was to feel safe and marry the very man who promised to love her and protect her, Ryker Knight. But growing up in the Nordic Lords Motorcycle Club, she should have known she couldn’t have a happy ending. Instead, her world became a nightmare. The bikers—her family—abandoned her, leaving her to crash without their safety net. Ryker Knight has spent the last five years consumed with guilt, running from the ghosts that haunt him. That is until his past catches up with him the moment his brother needs his help. Returning home to Jasper Bay, he’s forced to face the same ghosts he was running from. Only to find that the woman he loved is trapped in a hell of her own, entrenched behind enemy lines —and it’s all his fault. And even though Ryker’s life comes with priorities that he can’t – and won’t - turn his back on, he refuses to leave Jasper Bay until he’s found Faith. But will she want to return to the life she’s always wanted even if Ryker is no longer capable of giving her what he once promised.
I just finished Point of Redemption and I really liked it. I'm all for a biker book especially when it is the next in a series! You have to read this in order to get the full effect. Point of Return is the first in the series and it is about Olivia and Daemon. This is about Ryker and Faith. Ryker is Daemons brother and he has been gone for over 5 years. Stuff went down with Ryker and (killing his own dad and watching Olivia just about die) when he goes to see Faith for help, he sees her making out with the Nordic's nemesis. He leaves and one day Daemon calls his brother for help. He doesn't want to come back but needs to help his brother. He sees Faith and he still loves her but cannot help but hate her for cheating on him. Things are not always as they seem. Faith wasn't cheating on him. Her mother sold her to the enemies for her drug fix. When Ryker finds out, he is heartbroken. Faith has to do what she can to survive. When the wrongs are acknowledge become right? You will have to see.

I really liked this follow up. You knew reading Point of Return that there were some secrets that were going to come out. Stacey did a good job sticking with the story line and since they intertwine was able to follow easily. It was also good reading it because you get to see Olivia and Daemon and where they are in their life together. Also reading more about Jules, Jaden, and Finn. Newbies with Meg and Brayden are sure to make it more interesting I think!

Ryker is a hottie. What I love most is his loyalty. Always keeping a promise and always being there no matter what. Yes, he left Faith but what he should have done was asked questions but when you are in the moment and things are crazy, I understand why he didn't. I really liked Faith. Such a sweet girl, she honestly had to do what she could to survive. I felt bad for her. They both make mistakes and it is all up to owning them that makes it better. I can say that the chemistry between them is hot and loved their sexual tension. FIRE!

If you are looking for a biker book that is dirty, gritty and real. Then this one is for you!

Point of Return (Nordic Lords MC, #1)

Amazon Bestselling Author of the Just One Song series, Don't Lie to Me, Remembering Us and the Nordic Lords MC series. I am a wife, a mom, and a writer. I can often be found curled up on the couch with a good book, or obsessively eating Skittles in a very complicated and organized manner. No joke.
