Stripped by Jasinda Wilder was one of those books that you couldn’t put down and not because it was so good but because you just had to see how this train wreck ended.

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.

Stripped is the story of a young girl who …. well …. she doesn’t exactly run away from home because she is 18 and that means she can legally do whatever she wants, but she, let’s just say leaves home and her overprotective, overbearing father.

She learns rather quickly that life on your own isn’t easy and has a hard time trying to come up with enough money to pay for her college so she takes any job she can get, one as a stripper.

While admittedly it’s not a desirable job for most, the author, however, spends so much time trying to justify her decision and putting it down, saying she throws up or cries every day when she goes to work that it just gets ridiculous and ruins the whole story.

It wasn’t that the writing was bad, it was just a really bad story. If you are going to write a story about a girl who had to strip to support herself, then don’t spend all that time trying to justify this decision to your readers. If you are so afraid people are going to judge you badly based on a story you are writing then this isn’t the career for you. I can’t say how much this repeated attempt to justify what this girl did take away from the overall quality of the story.

It took what could have been a rather decent story into one that was a total and completely hot mess.

Would I read this again? Oh God no. Please no.

Would I recommend this to a friend? If I wanted them to see an example of a horrible story, then sure.
