Stripped Down is a sweet, sexy second chance romance Marty is at her best friend s bachelorette party at a male strip club when lo and behold, who is one of the strippers None other than Jax, her high school sweetheart, the boy her parents forced her to break up with back then, and whom she hasn t seen since they graduated As he dances around her on the stage while she and her BF are being twerked upon by all the strippers, she can t believe she s seeing Jax again and how very different he is than the boy she once loved, and lost When she feels something being shoved into her hand, and finds out it s a dancer s card, meant for a private dance, she isn t sure she wants to go down memory lane with him But, her friends shove her into the waiting dancer s hands and off she goes.When they drift into a sexy, kind of emotional, relationship, I was sort of cringing, because I knew it was all going too well I was waiting for the other shoe to drop, and when it did, damn, it hurt I won t give spoilers, let s just say that Jax is lucky that Marty is much nicer and forgiving than I If it had been me, I d have made him grovel, really grovel I m talking kissing my feet and my ass, full body massages, and chocolate for days kind of groveling.And that epilogue Whew, that was pretty intense for awhile there But it wrapped things up nicely for Jax and Marty, and they deserved it because they had gone through a lot to get to that HEA.Even though Stripped Down is short, it s mostly fully fleshed out and Marty and Jax are great characters Their chemistry is electric, and has only gotten stronger since high school I appreciate that they re both three dimensional, realistic characters There are no cookie cutter, cardboard cutout characters here Just two interesting, likable leads with a strong emotional and physical bond Kudos to Jade Allen for this sexy, sweet second chance story I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is a quick but entertaining book I liked it for the most part, but I do wish it was longer so that the story could have been fleshed out It s been 10 years since Jax and Mart have seen each other, and their initial meeting couldn t have been awkward With the way their high school relationship fell apart, I would have loved to have gotten answers on the current relationship between Marty and her parents.I thought there was a possibility that Jax and Marty were headed towards a HEA, but his sudden behavior flip in regards to the situation with his mom was so out of nowhere it almost read like two different people Marty was there for him back in high school so why treat her like crap in the present time Plus his internal thoughts regarding her made him seem like a d bag of the highest order Made me mad that it took a song for him to realize how much of a douche canoe he was with her, then when he finds her he wants to posture and act all macho when he gets to her best friend s house This after he didn t talk to her for months No sir I don t care how many beautiful words he d throw at me, the fact that he went off grid when life got serious would always make me question if and when it would happen again He comes clean about what happened, but there s still some drama on the way to their HEA.

I don t usually review the typical second chance romances, but something about this one caught my eye, and am so glad I read it The protagonists 2 Jax and Marty, were sweethearts in their collective pasts I would have liked a little of each of their lives during the past and subsequent movement to present day, for the most part I felt that the characterization of these two was very good In between the inevitable squabbles, hot, steamy sex and coming back together, there was sufficient material in this book for even the jaded no pun intended romance reader to appreciate I would read books from Jade Allen in the future if they present themselves to me at the appropriate time My rating for this book 4.25 stars.I don t leave synopsis of a book, as the author s blurb does a much better job then I ever could, nor do I don t leave spoilers as I feel this does an injustice to subsequent readers I am leaving an honest review voluntarily.
