What do you get when you mix a bottle of tequila, a single mom moonlighting as a stripper, and her sinfully sexy boss with an impulsive side?
Married. You get married.
Rich. Demanding. Hot. Crazy.
That was Beckett Cruz in a nutshell.
Not to mention wild, determined, dangerous, and forbidden.
He was my boss—and, after a drunken moment of insanity, my new husband.
An annulment was impossible... so was keeping him.
I was taking my daughter and leaving, determined to give her a quieter life.
But Beckett Cruz had never taken no for an answer.
And he wasn't about to take mine.
What happens in Vegas... might just keep you there.

I read both books and loved each one. I recommend them as a must read. I think you'll love West and Beckett as much as I do! Hot sexy men, who wouldn't ?
Beckett Cruz has never met a woman who wasn't after him purely for his money or the privileged life that his fortune could provide them with, so he always make sure to keep his defenses up and keep his entanglements with them strictly on a one night basis. But when Cassie waltzes into his life he immediately notices something different, she could care less about his money, and even less about finding her way into his bed... and it drives him crazy. He's not use to being told "no", let alone have a woman not willing to fall at his feet, and when he tries to turn on the charm he's met with nothing but resistance. After a few drinks her resistance starts to slip, and his defenses falter, and they find themselves in quite the predicament... suddenly hitched with no recollection of their walk down the aisle! This was my first time reading something from Ms. Hart, and I have to say that her writing totally took me by surprise, and instantly made me regret not reading something by her until now... she completely won me over with this delectable little story! Barely a page into it and I was completely captivated, and left with the insatiable need for more!! Cassie and Beckett pulled me into their world and had me completely entranced , and dangling from every spoken word. It was evident from the very beginning that these two were a match made in literary heaven, the intense chemistry they shared could instantly be felt from their first encounter, and continued to burn intently until the last page was turned. I highly recommend you pick up this book, it is one of those stories that will move you to tears, monopolize your every thought, stir your emotions, and fog up your tablet screen!! I truly loved every minute of it and look forward to settling down with more reads from this author in the very near future!! ARC given in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.
After reading Stripped Bare and being mesmerized by the handsome, dirty mouthed West Rykman and his undulating hips, I couldn't wait to get down and dirty with Beckett Cruz in Stripped Down. He had me in stitches and had already stolen my heart in Stripped Bare but after reading his and Cassie's story in the second book in the Stripped series, my heart is officially his! Emma Hart brings us to new heights of pleasure with a love story that begins in a club called the Landing Strip and ends with a happy ever after involving a stripper, a precocious little girl, and a life size fairytale prince Flynn Ryder...seriously! Cassie Gallagher has spent the last six years as a single mom spending her days watching Tangled while negotiating with her daughter over bedtimes and eating her vegetables and her nights working as a stripper. While life hasn't been easy, she is settled and her daughter Ciara is the joy of her life. Her life is simple, at least until a tequila filled night leaves her with a fuzzy memory and a gold band around her finger. Is there room in her life for a prince or will he leave her and Cic abandoned and broken hearted? I admired this skeptical, weary, blondie full of sass who has a back bone of steel. She is super mom personified and would do anything for her daughter and her parents. If there is anyone who deserves to be swept away and find her prince, it is Cassie. Beckett Cruz is a successful man with his pick of naked women with gyrating hips sliding down a pole and plenty of money to throw around. He thought his life was complete until a night of drinking and impulsive decisions leaves him wedded to a stripper at his club and captivated by her child. Beckett first wooed me with his beautiful body and witty sense of humor but he truly won me over when he wore down the defenses of a beautiful woman and captured the heart of a little girl. He set Cassie on fire with his sexy moves and dirty talk, sparked a child's laughter, and completely and totally melted my heart. Emma Hart delivers a tale that looks to be skin deep but will burrow so far inside your heart that you can't help but feel every emotion of the characters. I highly recommend Stripped Down for a hot read that will take your imagination to a place where spent bodies are left tangled in the sheets, a fairytale is brought to life, and hearts are filled with emotion. Emma Hart always amazes me with the depth of her characters and stories that heat your body and warm your heart. Stripped is a series that is sure to leave your emotions bared, a craving for sultry music, a pole, and heroes that are sure to make your evening more interesting! ~ Rochelle's Reviews
