“I may have had more lovers than you, and I may take my clothes off for countless women, but you are the only one who can strip me bare.”
Do you ever stop loving someone just because they’re gone?
Five years ago, Ryan Pierce disappeared from Alana Remington’s life without a trace. He was the one she gave her heart to, her soul to — and her virginity
to. So, imagine her surprise when she finds him dancing at one of NYC’s hottest male revues as ‘Jack the Stripper.’
Ryan never stopped loving Alana, and now that she has serendipitously dropped back into his life, he’s vowed never to lose her again. But being together has its costs, and challenges Alana isn’t sure she can handle. She finally has Ryan back. But how in the world is she supposed to share the love of her life with half of the women in New York City?
Strip Me Bare is a second chance, standalone romance. It contains angst, heat, humor, heartbreak, and one seductive male stripper who will not only have you handing over your panties, but also your heart. You’ve been warned.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sexy stripper with a clever stage name who isn’t afraid to love one woman? Yes please!
I must confess it took me a little warming up to get into this story. The intrigue was there. Why did Ryan disappear from her life suddenly all those years ago? I didn’t have to wonder long. That question was answered quickly. But Alana left me a little bit frustrated. She has this amazing guy and I must give her credit for her mature attitude towards the fact that her boyfriend is basically the hottest male stripper in New York and he has women throwing themselves at him. What frustrated me was that she didn’t revolt against her father’s control. She basically played a role with him to ensure that he continued to pay for her school and bills. Until she explained it in a way I understood. So then, I cut her some slack and things felt much better.
Alana and Ryan both come from dysfunctional families, but vastly different economic circumstances. Between the two of them, Ryan is open more emotionally, while Alana is more guarded. Not only is she afraid of getting her, but her stone-cold father did his best to strip her of any kind of vulnerability. Tears were not allowed. But eventually the floodgates end up breaking and I was swept away with her in a deluge of emotion where the tears seemed endless. Here I was reading this story, going with the flow, most of which I sort of saw coming. roving once again, that M. Never always hits me with an excruciating dose of heartbreak that I never see coming. Strip Me Bare delivers swoon, raw emotion and super-charged chemistry, all in abundance.
