I loved and enjoyed reading the awesome & amazing sequel to the Stripped series by the sensational author, H.M. Ward. "ARC Review" Jon Ferro goes against his mother's wishes, buys the strip club, and is disinherited. The love of his life, Cassie, is hiding from her abusive husband. While Jon and Cassie are struggling with their internal demons, they are trying to find their way back to each other. Read the highly recommended, must read, captivating & engaging, romantic love story of Jon and Cassie.

This book was phenomenal! All I can say is wow! Just wow! I'm speechless. This book is hands down my favorite for Ferro book yet. Jon was so not who or what I thought he was. He makes me say Sean and Peter who? Jon is what every woman dreams of. There's so much to the story that you won't even believe. I cried more than a few tears, but I can honestly say that my heart is full! My hat is off to HM Ward for bringing to light everything she did in this book!! Jon and Cassie's story is one that will stay with you for a long time! Beautiful!!

**ARC REVIEW ** An awesome sequel to Stripped! You get to see a different side of Jon (the playboy) and see the hell Cassie has been through. This is an emotional roller coaster read with real life issues. Jon and Cassie are one of my favorite couples and hate to see the Sripped series come to an end. Once again HM Ward has written a great book! A must read!

Welcome back Jon Ferro! Stripped 2 starts where Stripped left off. The only heir left to the Ferro fortune purposely buys a strip club to make mommy dearest mad. Sean, Pete, Bryan, Trystan, Avery, Sidney and Mel are all there to try and stop him from this deal. But Jon is determined to go through with it. He can’t let them in on a secret he has kept from everyone. The girl he thought betrayed him and the only girl he has ever loved walks back into his life. Bryan is not happy about that either. Cassie knows that Jon and the entire Ferro family hate her. She never met to hurt Jon. If only things could have turned out different, both of their lives would have turned out so much better. Hidden behind a façade of being another Ferro manwhore, Jon has been doing some fantastic things with his life. Since nobody paid attention to anything he did, Jon ended up being a savvy businessman. He was making a ton of money on his own without any help from the ice queen, mama Ferro. Jon doesn’t need the Ferro fortune, he has his own. This story touches on some very important issues going on. Physical, sexual & emotional abuse has played a part in this story. I was beyond shock at some of the things that came out. It is a very serious issue and the way that HM Ward tells the story brings light to things that can happen in the personal lives of people. The steps and scenes are so well written. Can Jon and Cassie find their happily ever after? Will they overcome everything that happened in the past? Can your first love end up being the one after all this time? I loved this book. It was a more serious side of the Ferro clan. I think because of the topics involved that it was very fitting.

WOW, is all I can say after reading this book. I have waited what feels like forever for a happy ending for my favorite Ferro. There is so much emotion in this book and it's so powerful. From the beginning, you can see that both Jon and Cassie are so broken, yet they love each other even with so much time having passed. Jon's devotion and love for Cassie never wavers and he becomes the man I knew he was as he helps Cassie through a painful time in her life. You see so many sides of Jon in this book and each one makes me love him more. Cassie is a strong heroine, too. She has suffered a traumatic past and finds the strength to move past it so that she can have a life with Jon. I read this book in one day. It was very moving and well worth the wait to have Jon and Cassie's chapter closed.

GOOD READ .

I think this book was well worth the wait. Jon is trying really hard to be Cassie's friend when really he wants more. Jon realizes that he actually loves Cassie but he knows that she's not ready. Cassie has been through a lot since the last time she seen Jon, but she's trying to put her past behind her. Cassie is trying to talk Jon into giving the club over to Sean, so that his mother will not kick him out of the family, but he doesn't want to. This book not only tells Jon and Cassie's story but it touches on a serious issue that most people don't want to talk about, it could be helpful to a lot of people. H.M., you never disappoint, you always put your whole heart in these books that are truly amazing, I know I say about all of her books but it is truth. If you are reading this then you need to purchase this book and discover an awesome author, if you are new to her. I also received an ARC for my honest review, I also purchased this book.

Jon is still my favourite Ferro by far. I have loved the stripped series from start to finish. Jon and Cassie are both so troubled and have so much to deal with that it seems there's no way there can be a happy ending. Jon is so loving and caring towards Cassie And it is clear he loves her from the first book. Cassie tries to be strong and act like she isn't broken. She tries to pretend she is ok if Jon is seeing other people when really she wants him as much as he wants her. I did find myself saying out Loud 'just tell each other how you feel!' This book is an emotional rollercoaster and is a must read for all Ferro / HM Ward fans. There is love, loss and also awareness of real issues that affect people everyday in this story. I have given a five star review because I loved the story so much but there is something that's been nagging me; all the Ferro stories link up with one another which is one of the main things I love about Hollys work and in book one Bryan is in the club and although he isn't really in book 2 after the first few chapters I feel that Bryan's own story and tragedy would have happened in between and would have been mentioned later in the story like the wedding is. This is probably just me as I was so saddened by the proposition series it's stuck with me so I expected there to be a cross over with his storyline further along maybe towards the end but it's nothing an author can help when a book takes so much time to be well written and others come out in between. I love that Mr Turkey is the story too!! Well done HM Ward, you've smashed it once again.

Wow! What a great love story! Jon and Cassie have baggage, and I mean BAGGAGE! There are some really tough subjects addressed in this story but HM Ward handles it with such grace (as usual)! It is so exciting to see Cassie again even if she isn't the same girl we knew from book one. Life has hit her hard (in the face, alot) but she is a trooper. She continues to battle and fight for the life she has always dreamed of while running from the past. Jon accidentally runs into the girl who has held his heart since the day he met her and the struggle begins. Can they overcome pride and hurt? Can they escape Cassie's past before it destroys them both? Its a joy to also see Sean, Avery, Peter, Sydney, Tristan and other Ferros again. We get glimpses into their stories again but from another angle. This always adds depth to each story line. Only an amazing author could pull this off so seamlessly!!

I received this ARC for an honest review. WOW. I loved it, so many unforeseen twists and turns. This is book 2 of the Jon and Cassie story and you will be quickly turning the pages needing MORE. Jon is smokin' hot and the youngest Ferro brother. He walks into a strip club one night and sees Cassie Hale (the one who got away from him). She held such high values that he never even kissed her and now she is stripping! Jon needs to find out what caused the extreme change while trying to control his hormones and his heart. Great story. You will want to laugh, yell, cry and fist pump so get ready for a great read with several cameo appearances from The Ferrors and Trystan Scott the hot rock star. H. M. Ward is an amazing writer who can tell several stories at one time and tie them all together with ease.

Surprised and awed! Cassie and Jon set off on an extraordinary journey of healing. Unfortunately, there are people lurking...waiting for Jon to fail. Who would want that? Will Cassie ever be free of her past? Can Jon protect her? H.M. Ward's Stripped 2 showcases all her amazing tricks of the trade, like humor and laugh out loud moments, to discuss topics that can be emotional and sensitive. I would definitely recommend reading this lengthy book. Amazing characters revisit the pages and yes...I finally have a 'Holly' style HEN/HEA ending I love! A definite read!
