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 but....it 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!!
