Caiza was living in the lap of luxury. A college student working at a law firm and living with her fiance Jacey, her money was hers and his money was hers. That is until unfortunate circumstances 'stripped' her of it all. She never thought the day would come that she'd be manless, jobless and homeless. Caiza quickly rebounded but could never really make ends meet. Robbing Peter to pay Paul just wasn't cutting it. Determined not to ask others for help financially, she makes the ultimate decision to bare it all at the House of Sin. In baring it all, Caiza unknowingly opens herself to murder, greed and mayhem. Will she see the error in her ways before she is stripped of it all, including her life? Stripped made for a very quick, easy and enjoyable read. Nice pace and just enough drama to carry readers along without going over the top. The ending however, wrapped up quickly, a little too quickly. As the pages dwindled, I honestly thought that the author was going to leave readers with a cliff hanger to be continued in a sequel. I would have also liked for the mystery/suspense elements to have been explored a little more. Overall, Jacki Simmons nicely introduces herself to the literary world in this promising debut novel.

Still a baby, Caiza Bell was already in a five year long relationship with Jacey White. A student at St. John's, Caiza studied Business and worked as a secretary for Ester and Scarowitz. Budgeting was never a priority as Caiza was able to enjoy her checks due to the fruits of Jacey's labor. One broken engagement... heartbroken Downsizing at your job... broke An eviction notice tacked on your door...$2100- due immediately Being able to exhibit your ballet skills...Priceless! Caiza's enchanted life was quickly turning into a never ending nightmare. Her best friend, Myeshia Brown, knew of an easy solution to her money woes. Once the forbidden door was unlocked, sin, sex, deception and infidelity came lumbering in full-force. Could the once cautious Caiza avoid all of the ghastly elements that her new life presented? STRIPPED is a lively read that offers booklovers an exhaustive look in the two-way mirror of living. I would have loved more from the mystery and suspense. STRIPPED is a good first effort for beginner Jacki Simmons.

"Stripped" by Jacki Simmons was a story of survival turn to greed. Caiza was happy with life. She had the perfect man, house, job and all. She went from sitting on top of the world to rock bottom. As she enters a world of desperation she turns to stripping. What started out as a pure need to survive turned in to out right greed. Once she was n the lifestyle it was hard to get out. Jacki lets you see what happens in various parts of your life once you let the greed over run your common sense. A great fast paced story of love lost, and a need to survive in this mean world! Great job Jacki!!
