Overview

He's a movie star sex god. She's a virgin... and a stripper.

So how did I get myself into this situation, you ask? Simple: desperation. When you're faced with being homeless and hungry or taking off your clothes for money, the choice is easier than you'd imagine. That doesn't make it easy, though. Oh no. I hate it, in fact. There's nothing I'd like more than to quit and never go into another bar again, never hear the techno beat pulsing in my ears again, never feel the lecherous gazes of horny men again.

Then, one day, I meet a man. He's in my club, front and center. He watches me do my routine, and his gaze is full of hunger. Not the kind of desire I'm used to though. It's something different. Something hotter, deeper, and more possessive. I know who he is; of course I do. Everyone knows who Dawson Kellor is. He's People Magazine's Sexiest Man alive. He's the hottest actor in Hollywood. He's the man hand-picked for the role of Rhett Butler in the long-awaited remake of Gone With the Wind.

He's the kind of man who can have any woman in the entire world with a mere crook of his finger. So what's he doing looking at me like he has to have me? And how do I resist him when he looks at me with those intoxicating, changeable, quicksilver eyes?

I'm a virgin, and he's an American icon of male sexuality. I'm a stripper, and he's a man used to getting anything and everything he wants. And he wants me. I know I should say no, I know he's the worst kind of player...but what my mind knows, my body and my heart may not.

And then things get complicated.

Full length (90,000 word) New Adult Contemporary Romance.

I really loved this book. It was an emotional ride with great characters. This book brings you in and had me pulling for Grey and Dawson all the way. It was a sweet, sexy, emotional read. Well done.

Ok, I really loved Falling Into Us and Falling Into You - but this was meh. Kind of juvenile and completely unrealistic. And they were saying I love you after like a week? And after all that time never being kissed or dating or anything, she gives it up after a few days with this guy? Kinda cheesy.

I absolutely loved their story! Stripped is my favorite Jasinda Wilder book so far. I couldn't put it down!!

Maybe because I've read her Falling books I expected something a little more emotional. I had to force myself to finish this book. Grey was so naive and annoying.

Any fan of Jasinda Wilder, will love Stripped. It is a sweet romance with characters that you will fall in love with.  They aren't perfect but they are real.  Be prepared to read in one sitting because you won't be able to put it down until the end.  You will be endeared to Grey and her struggle, you will fall in love with Dawson and their story will touch your heart.  As with any good romance, the ending will leave you with a warm and happy feeling!

So I have a long standing love for this author and she has yet to fail me. Not only did she not fail me with Stripped she went beyond my expectations!! Jasinda gets a huge 5 star review for this, as we absolutely loved it from page one! Okay now to all that is Stripped! First we meet Grey Amundsen she is a very sheltered pastors daughter growing up in Macon, Georgia. She is finishing high school and begging to take dance classes. However her dad has some strong feelings regarding this. “No daughter of mine will engage in any such lewd and sinful behavior as dancing,” Her mother who is always on her side comes to the rescue as she has been for many years. “Our daughter knows right from wrong, and you know it. She just wants to bring glory to God by using the talent's He's given her.” Finally Grey gets to be Gray and show herself in the only way she knows how and she is great. She learns her senior year that not only does she enjoy dancing but also she enjoys film. Everything is going as good as expected for this small town family until.... Tragedy strikes and Grey is forced to do the only thing she can which is move to California to pursue her passion of film. Grey is now in the “Land of Sin” and going to film school. Things seem to be going as expected with little money and school but she enjoys it and learns to spread the money as needed... Until the money isn't their anymore she runs out and is forced to make a decision which she HATES! Between school and board and a great new internship (That she needs appropriate attire for) she realizes that a job is needed and a job is needed now. After much searching she finally goes to the one place that she wasn't wanting to go. But as you will see Grey is determined and strong and will get what she wants even if she has to be miserable along the way. After awhile of working her internship and moonlighting as a stripper she gets requested in a private party. This isn't the first time that she has had to do one but it will be the most life changing. Stepping into the private party she comes face to face with a few of Hollywood's A-listers and one of them takes her breath away... This is when we meet.... Dawson Kellor! Ladies he is not just good looking he is gorgeous!!! Full of sex appeal and the confidence to make it work and his eyes are glued on Grey. Grey has kept her secret from her internship and now a turn of events has her secret pushing towards the top and about to bust out. What will she do? It turns out this Hollywood actor can't help himself but falls super fast and super deep into our Grey and it is so beautiful to watch this couple come together. He is the definition of a gentleman and it only makes him more sexy while you read about the things he does to take care of her. Will they have the happily ever after that they deserve? Only one way to find out and that is by buying this book like umm Yesterday. We not only recommend you do we require it! Warning as the Lovely Jasinda did warn me there will be tears but she makes up for it! You will feel so many emotions in this book which is amazing for an author to do and she pulls every emotion off from crazy ugly crying to laughing and smiling with joy. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Jillian's Review Jasinda Wilder has done it again.... she has tugged at our heart strings and took us on one wild emotional ride! I loved this book and I love this author even though she makes me cry in all her books! Grey Amundsen is a preachers daughter that has lived in Macon Georgia her whole life. She has a love for dance where she gets to be herself and express her emotions in ways she can't. Then one day tragedy strikes her life and turned it upside down. She then makes a life changing decision And moves to California to pursue her love for films. When she gets to California she throws herself into school and nothing else until she is forced to get a Job but no one will hire anyone with no experience but she gets this one opportunity but will she have the courage to go through with it? Then she meets hottie Dawson Kellor who is the Brad Pitt of the younger generation. They fall hard for each other. Dawson treats Grey like a princess. But can Grey accept it and let her guard down to love him back? If you want an book that's filled with hot steamy romance and heart ache then this is your book! Go buy it!!!

Not my thing all the detailed sex stuff. The premise was a good one. Although i was really interested in what would happen when it was discovered she used to strip to get by, but once it was revealed, it just skidded by. Very disappointing.

This book is 572pages of wonderful. It's full of love, romance and first time experiences. The sex is amazing. The character of Dawson is a very strong man on the outside but on the inside part of him is still a scared child who is desperate for someone to truely love him. Grey is all sorts of messed up. She is a very beautiful girl trying to become a woman but has no clue of how and ends up sending her life into a spiraling disaster. My one problem with this story is the fact that the author has Grey's character babble on and on about things in this story, to the point that at imes I wanted to pull my hair out. It made her seem very weak when actually she was a really strong woman who just didn't know it. At times I truely cried for her. All in all I recommend this book to everyone. Have the tissues ready. And you better get out a fan because when Dawson meets Grey both of their lives change forever and sparks start to fly and things start to heat up, steam up, fire up, and then explode into full blown straight up AMAZING SEX. Then a love like everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. So yes I absolutely loved this book.

Disappointed. This book started off really good. I couldnt put it down, until....SPOILER ALERT.... they have sex. After they do, it seems as that is all they do. We never learn if Grey finishes school, how her father is and if he is ill, remarried, or if she gets the job. Grey is abit annoying too. I loved the Falling books, and started to love this one as well, but the sex scenes seemed to take over the book, and we then lost the story.

This book could have been really good. But I felt like this book was missing parts, you would be in the middle of scene next thing you knew it was days later. The story was an emotional roller coaster but towards the end I was over it wanting off the ride. I felt Grey never got over her past and it just dragged on. Other than that the book had a got plot and loved Dawson!

Literally the main character cries soooo much. You cant go 10 pages without her crying over something. Cute plot but main character just got on my nerves too much.

Jasinda I just finished Stripped... And hot damn I feel Stripped. What an amazing book you wrote! Gonna post my first review on Goodreads tomorrow. But I LOVED this book. Feel in love with Falling for You and Falling Into You. But you knocked it outta the park with Stripped. Thank You, That's All I Can Say. You Rock

When i started this book , i wasn' t sure i was going to like it , let alone make it through the first few chapters. I'm glad i kept reading because this was a beautiful story about a girl struggling to find her own , through alot of turmoil and struggle she finds herself as well as her soulmate along the way. The book reminds me somewhat of a mix between A walk to remember, footloose & unscripted, but with it's own flavor & flare. Loved this story Jasinda.......Thank you!!

Great writing! Snippets of it felt very personal, like it was a recollection.

Grey Amundsen has done everything in order to keep from being homeless and hungry...until she is down to her last ditch effort. The only job she can get is stripping. No where else will hire her. So she sucks it up and strips. Then one evening for a private party she meets him...Dawson Kellor. Hollywood's hottest actor. Something happens that night she can't understand. How can Hollywood's Sex Icon want her...The Virgin Stripper! Something Grey can't deny is the sparks and heat they create just being in the same room. I love it when you go to read something by one of your favorite authors and it turns out AMAZING! Jasinda hardly ever lets me down. Stripped was an emotional roller coaster with ups and downs and all the in betweens. These two fall hard for each other and all the craziness they go through. There were some parts that Grey seemed a bit weak and naive but that could have been because she was somewhat isolated in her hometown. Once again Jasinda, darling...amazing job!

The road to self-discovery is not always easy ... Grey Amundsen has grown up hiding who she really is or wants to be because her father is a strict Baptist pastor who demands that she follow his rules. Her Mom is her only cheerleader and knows that Grey needs to spread her wings and live a different life. When the unthinkable happens and Grey is left with just her father, she flees because he doesn't know her and has never tried to understand her. She embarks on her dream of working in films and goes to USC all alone. When the reality hits that her scholarship money won't last forever she must get a job that pays a lot and quickly ... enter the strip club. She hates it ... Jasinda Wilder really lets you feel all of Grey's emotions as she faces all of these challenges and then one night Dawson Kellor (famous actor) sees her and knows she doesn't belong where she is. From here we get to ride the wave of a great romance as Dawson tries to break through Grey's walls and Grey tries to figure out who she really is. All I can say is chapter 12 blew me away .... SIGH! Enjoyed Grey's journey to find herself - realizing she is more than what she knew as a child and that this is ok. Thank you Jasinda Wilder for another great romance!

Although this book starts off a bit slow, it picks up about a third of the way. Loved the characters & how the story unfolded. This is my 3rd book to read by this author & have enjoyed each one. Looking forward to reading more of her books.

I really liked the story line and characters in this book but it was a lot longer than it needed to be. It made the beginning very slow but I'm glad I stuck with it. I love full length novels but there were probably 100 pages that could have been edited out of this one without changing anything vital to the story. I would definitely try another of her books in the future
