Cassidy Carmichael never really had nice things, but that didn't stop her from dreaming. She didn't want a mansion in Bel Air or a private jet or a maid to cater to her every whim, just simple things like a reliable car, a regular night at the movies, and eating out every once in a while. But her dreams were far from her reality.
After five years of trying to make it in Hollywood, she's been worn down by living in bad apartments, getting used by one man after another, and eating Ramen noodles seven days a wee. All she has to show for it is a couple of commercials and one independent film that three people went to see. So when her friend suggests she work a couple days a week at a Los Angeles strip club, she finds it hard to say no. The money is good, and deep down she is excited about the prospect of stripping in front of complete strangers.
However, not everyone wants to be a stranger. A sexy young man with a shock of surfer-blonde hair and a light Southern drawl comes to the club night after night asking to take her on a date. Jaded and angry, Cassidy tells him that her time is money, and walks away. So he begins to pay. One night a week, he buys two hours with her, and all he does is sit and talk with her. Can Cassidy allow herself to trust yet another man with good intentions?
STRIPPED 1 is the first in a new erotic romance short story series by bestselling author, EMMA ROSE.

Cassidy Carmichael worked hard her whole life. She had to work just to pay the bills and stay alive. She had dreams though and those dreams are what kept her going. All she ever wanted was to live comfortably. She wanted to be like everyone else. Going to movies, out to dinner and just having a bit of fun. Her move to Los Angeles was supposed to give her the break she needed. It didn't. While talking with her friend Sherry one night, she found out how Sherry earned her living. She suggested Cassidy give it a try. Cassidy wasn't sure she could do it, but decided to give it a try. Wild and sensual, this book will make you HOT! I enjoyed reading about Cassidy and Sherry. It was an interesting and fun read. Certainly this book could be the start of an evening of romance. Well written and characters who are well defined, this book is everything you could want in an adult read. I found no issues with this one. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because you can't find a better one. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~
