    I could not put it down

    I loved this book! I could not put it down. Erin McCarthy is an amazing writer that pulls you into her stories and makes you wish for more. I cannot wait to go read book 2, and then anxiously anticipate the next release. I loved Sloan and Rick. She is his best friends older sister, who he always had a crush on. When Sloan sees Rick for the first time she does not recognize him, and immediately is drawn no him. She is shocked to find out who he is, but cannot deny the attraction she felt. I loved all of the secondary characters as well, and I cannot wait to read their stories.

    Hot, Steamy romance

    Rick and Sloane have a history. Sloane was a former mean girl who shared an earth-shattering kiss with her younger brother’s best friend. Rick was that friend and he has changed in the years since that kiss. Sloane is not looking to start a relationship. Hurt by a bitter divorce, all she wants is to be left alone. But that doesn’t happen. After seeing Rick stripping for a charity auction, Sloane needs to see if Rick lives up to the promise in his boxers. Rick wants to know if kissing Sloane now was as good as kissing her back then. Determined to keep each other in the friends with benefits zone, they both start to fall for each other. But can it last? Can Rick and Sloane keep it at sex? Or will it blow up in their faces? I wasn’t too sure if I liked Rick and Sloane as a couple. I got rebound relationship vibes from them. Sloane was fresh from a divorce. Her ex-husband cheated on her and that made her feel like she wasn’t attractive. So, I wasn’t surprised when she ended up sleeping with Rick. I thought it was hilarious that such a big deal was made about Rick’s package. I giggled through Sloane’s reaction to seeing it. I giggled through people saying that “he grew into it“. Seeing that I was in bed, I got some dirty looks from my SO because well, it was 11pm and I was laughing my fool butt off. I liked that Rich thought himself to be a smooth operator. His confidence was awesome. His determination to sleep with Sloane was amazing, considering at his bestie threatened to rearrange his face. His one-liners to her were hilarious. But I also liked seeing his other side. His mature and responsible side. His devotion to his 9-year-old sister was amazing. I was saddened by the fact that he had to become her legal guardian at such a young age. But I was also saddened over the situation that led to it. His truth bomb on his father was something that needed to be said. It saddened me to see that he grew up like that but still. He was the complete package. I felt bad for Sloane. I couldn’t imagine how she felt when her husband told her that he was cheating on her. Betrayed was the closest thing that I could come up with as a feeling. I didn’t blame her when she moved back to her hometown. I was a little surprised when she decided to hook up with Rick and then keep hooking up with him. I was also surprised when she started having feelings for him. Sloane and Rick did have some unbelievable chemistry. From the minute their eyes met, it radiated from them. So I wasn’t too surprised that the sex was hot. I did think that Sloane was going to have a problem walking because Rick was so big (haha). The scene on the motorcycle was insane. I will never look at a motorcycle the same again. The end of the book was a big “Eh” for me. I did think that Sullivan’s reaction after the Ferris Wheel scene was a bit much. Also, what is with everyone ditching the baby with Axl? Other than that, I liked the end of the book. It was sweet. Sloane deserved it. **I chose to leave this review after reading an advance reader copy**

    A quick, light read

    When his friends float the idea of a strip tease dance at the local bar, Rick is all for it. So what if his high school crush and mean girl extraordinaire is in the crowd? He's shed the insecurity of his teen years, plus it's for a worthy charitable cause. Divorced before her thirtieth birthday, Sloane has been taking stock of her life. Known in high school as the girl who got whatever she wanted, she's trying to channel that energy in more positive ways. When a sexy stripper catches her eye on her birthday, she thinks things might be looking up until she realises that he's one of her younger brother's best friends. What follows is a funny, insightful, sexy and sweet look at life when it doesn't quite turn out the way you originally planned. A quick, light read, Stripped Down introduces us to a group of childhood friends that look out for each other. The secondary characters are a fun bunch (I loved River!) that I can't wait to meet in future installments in the series.

    ...an irresistible bundle of heartwarming fun.

    It happens to the best of us. No more hiding behind snarky comments, over-inflated egos and childhood fantasy. Eventually we have to grow up. McCarthy reminds us that life has a tendency to get in the way, but it also pushes us through the heartache. Stripped Down is brash humor with a ton of heart and a dash of wisdom. The mean girl finally gets a long overdue reality check. Sloane is used to putting her best foot forward, but this time she has to do the work. It takes a less than stellar homecoming and a blast from her not so distant past to show her the error of her ways. Sloane, Rick and their slew of busybody friends are an irresistible bundle of heartwarming fun.
