Bad Boy... Billionaire... Baby Brother...

Who is the real Jonah Steele?

Video game mogul Jonah Steele may be a billionaire, but as the youngest brother in a family of alphas, his struggle to prove his worth is all-consuming. Although he saved his hometown from ruin, he can't forgive himself for the biggest failure of his life.

As a teenager, Tessa Martin survived one of the most devastating nights of her life. Now, she's a corporate psychologist and stronger than ever. She also has her sights set on Jonah Steele, her former boss and the only man who can track down the hacker who compromised her confidential client files. But can she confess that Jonah's deepest secrets were exposed as well?

As the threat distorts into a real-life version of Jonah's legendary video game, his and Tessa's complicated emotional past-and the secrets buried there-could prove fatal. Will they strip away the past and reveal their feelings for one another, or allow it to blind them to a killer's twisted game of revenge?

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Kelsey Browning writes humorous Southern women's fiction with a sprinkling of mystery, sexy contemporary romance, and romantic suspense. Her Georgia-set, co-authored G Team mystery series is described by readers as "The Golden Girls meet Dirty Harry." Her single title romances garner reviews that call her writing funny, sassy, and full of sizzling chemistry.

Originally from a Texas town smaller than the ones she writes about, Kelsey has also lived in the Middle East and Los Angeles, proving she's either adventurous or downright nuts. These days, she makes her home in northeast Georgia with her tech-savvy husband, her smart-talking son, a rescue dog from Qatar, and her (fingers crossed) future therapy pup.

Powerful intrigue takes us for a ride! We've been loving on Jonah for so many books now, and finally we get his story. A bit of the mystique and the wind in the sail were let out by learning a big part of what tortures him in Micki's story, but in this one we get an inside look into his thoughts and feelings and we get to see him lay his heart on the line. I loved him with Tessa, and I love this series so hard! Billionaire Jonah Steele should be living the good life now that he's back home in North Carolina, set for life after making it big with his video game empire, but there's one thing from the past that haunts him. When Tessa steps back into his life, he has mixed emotions. He's tortured by memories and heartache ... yet he's so attracted to her that he can't see straight. Maybe helping her with this problem will get his head straight once and for all ... or so he thinks before he realizes the danger knocking at her door! Tessa Martin is a former employee, a former lover and his biggest regret. On the most horrific night of her life, Jonah feels like he failed her. She feels differently. She's gotten past the nightmares and tortuous memories the best she can and she has been living strong, but suddenly someone has hacked her life and is coming out to taunt her. She needs the best to try to figure out this mess for her ... and the best is Jonah!

Loved this story! I've been waiting for Jonah's story and this book made it well worth the wait! Jonah, the youngest Steele brother and savior of Steele Ridge, finally finds his own bit of happy. The fact that it is with the one woman he's never been able to forget makes it even better. Tessa Martin may have had to overcome issues from her youth but she's done it and is now a strong capable woman. Convincing Jonah to see her now rather than remember the young woman she was then isn't so easy but she needs his help and his heart. She'll stop at nothing to get both. A great read and one I highly recommend.

This novel has a little of everything, suspense, mystery, romance. It's very well written with a well developed storyline and lots of emotion. The characters are complex and likable. I love reading about the Steele family and their interactions with each other. I was intrigued by the appearance of Jonah's dad and his cryptic advice. I hope we get his HEA and second chance at love with Miss Joan. ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Kelsey Browning writes an amazing story in Stripping Bare. I have been looking forward to Jonah’s story ever since he became Baby Billionaire! Stripping Bare is filled with heartache and difficult topics. There is hope in this story and we get to watch two people overcome so much. It’s warms the heart. We meet Tessa in Stripping Bare. She has such strength and determination that you admire her from the start. Tessa’s history is definitely filled with heartbreak and Jonah has been beating himself up over it for so many years, taking the blame. I never knew he had so much passion inside of him because he always gives off an easy going vibe in the other Steele Ridge books. That’s what he wants others to see. He carries so much on his own and tries to protect others. The plot in this story freaks me out. How would you feel if someone was watching and threatening you but you had no idea who that was or if they would follow through on their threats? It added a level of tension to the story that all good suspense books do! The gaming side was fun but tricky for me since I am not a gamer. Those that love to games will enjoy this aspect of the story. It certainly adds to the action and adventure. The romance between Tessa and Jonah is tough but runs deep. I can’t really relate to what each of them was going through but appreciated and respected each sides and my heart ached for them as if they were my real friends. Browning always writes such full, emotionally-loaded love scenes. They are amazing, pull you in as if you are experiencing it with the characters and leave you a bit breathless. Even with uniqueness of Tessa and Jonah’s history and the struggles they shared in the bedroom, these were fantastic. This was an unbelievable romance. The suspense and mystery aspect of the Stripping Bare was very well done. The twist and turns kept me reading to the very end. And of course, I enjoyed the rest of the Steele clan’s involvement. They are such a fun gang to be around! While the stories are all connected by characters, each book has its own plot, so anyone can give Stripping Bare a read and will enjoy it!

I've been waiting for Jonah's story. I will admit this one took me a little bit to get into, but once I did I couldn't put it down. Some of my favorite moments in the book is when the Steele siblings get together. It just sends the message how much family means to them. Makes my heart happy and I enjoy the humorous moments. Tessa what an amazing character. She has so much strength for rising above her past and forging a future. The suspense in this book kept me on the edge of my seat and turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next. This book was worth the wait for Jonah. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book.

Wow! Tessa and Jonah’s story has some very serious, sometimes tough to read, themes and experiences...but I think it makes their relationship deeper and more meaningful. Once they can each get by the bad memories and guilt (mostly Jonah’s) they feel. Having broken my self-imposed rule of not reading series books out of order(I I did read also read both Steele Ridge The Beginning and Going Hard, both by Kelsey Browning), I can attest that this book can be read as a stand alone and I was not missing out on anything, series wise. It’s hard to review a book without revealing potential spoilers and not sounding like a regurgitation of the back cover. This wonderful story is about a strong willed survivor heroine, reunited (whether they want to be or not) with the reluctant savior hero from the worst time in her life. It’s about second chances in the face of danger, love that stems from heartbreak and forgiveness, and a connection of souls. It’s awesome, sad, beautiful, sexy and real. I love it! I received a complimentary copy of this book. In no way did it influence my honest review

FANTASTIC STORY!! This story was exciting, suspenseful and steamy and loads of fun to read! Jonah is the Steele family's computer geek and baby billionaire. Tessa is a woman that has worked hard to become the strong, independent woman she is now after a devastating incident from her past. Jonah and Tessa have a past they need to work through while someone from their past is out to ruin them. Loads of techie talk and the flow of the story had me excited to get to the HEA!! I would give this a 10 star if I could!
