Originally posted at Booklovers For LifeI had such high hopes for Stripped I mean a stripper and a fifth grade teacher To say I was intrigued would be an understatement and I ended up adoring Fallon and Robyn Their romance was surprisingly so much sweeter than I expected but just as dirty and sexy as I was hoping a stripper romance would be It was so easy to fall into the story the writing the characters Zoey Castile is a new author you don t want to miss And if you re a fan of Magic Mike you absolutely need to read StrippedRobyn Flores The Lotus Palace life is a bit of a mess She s an elementary school teacher who is perpetuallyate getting to work She used to have plans growing up on how exactly her Kungfu Boy life would turn out and it s all spiraled out from under her But things start to change when she finds a seuined thong in heraundry a thong that belongs to her next door neighbor who is also one of the strippers who shows up at her best friend s bachelorette partyFallon is not ashamed of being a stripper and why should he be He embraces his job that has The Rich Mans Mistress (Models Millionaires, led him to become successful and comfortable inife a change from his childhood He sees no shame in what he does though he hates that people disrespect him and A Hasty Betrothal look down on him when they find out what he does for aiving He and Robyn feel an instant connection the moment they meet and the chemistry between them is on fire I Rapture Part Two (The Rapture Series Book 2) loved every moment they were together as they banter with each other and form a closer bond Fallon is absolutely perfect for Robyn with the way he treats her so preciously The way he embraces his job helps Robyn discover and embrace her own true passion inife Robyn frustrated me a bit with her back and forth in both The King of Anavrea (Theodoric Saga life and with Fallon but that was balanced out by how kindhearted Fallon was Stripped was surprisinglyow on drama but it worked for their storyAs far as first books in a series go Stripped was fantastic It was entertaining funny but also had its meaningful moments Also Zoey Castile is way too talented at writing stripper scenes because they just come to The Girl at the Door life right out of the pages And they are HOT I can t wait to see what else she has in store for her readers with the rest of the series and I m so excited to see strippers fall inove Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me a copy to review Ebook Paperback this review Subscribe to Booklovers For Life for That was fun Actual
