Stone Wright is Foreplay’s hottest act. While entertaining at the popular L.A. strip club known for catering to the feminine wild, the fever-inducing Aussie with the sex-saturated accent and moves to match is preparing for the audition of a lifetime on the sensational hit reality show Then Prove You Can Dance.
When retired principal dancer and ballerina Emilie Cartier stumbles into his dressing room, she’s still reeling from the one wrong spin that altered her entire life and obliterated her dreams.
After a humiliating public, albeit meteoric, orgasm—the kind so desperate to escape, it took over her body without her brain's permission—and a second, more intimate and deliriously deliberate one, Emilie makes a deal with Stone: he helps her get her dancing mojo back and she readies him for his national audition.
But she insists he keeps his wily, wandering hands to himself and his dirty mouth shut. Of course, that’s going to be an extremely hard challenge—one of herculean proportions.
Emilie is not prepared for Stone—the way he spins her mind dizzy, rocks her body into sweet oblivion or dirty dances into her every daydream—and falling in love with him is so definitely not an option.
The closer Stone gets to Emilie, the more he realizes he’d do anything to make her his own. Problem is, he’s a real f*ck-up with relationships. And that means he’s dangerously close to becoming her next major f*ck-up.
What happens when all of the emotional layers—along with the stage props, their dancewear and every last shred of their clothes—are ultimately stripped?
A stripper and a ballerina walk into a competition. No that isn’t the start of a joke; it is indeed just one of the many things I loved about this book. Stripped is about Stone, who is a stripper as well as a dancer, get your naughty minds out of thinking the naughtiest thoughts because what I mean is he wants to dance professionally and is trying out for a TV show for a dance competition. Although naughty is one delicious way to describe Stone. He is sex, funny, sweet and oh so naughty. Did I mention he’s an Aussie? No? Well that just adds to his sex appeal.
So I bet you are wondering about the ballerina aren’t you? Well Emilie is a retired principal ballerina, she got injured and could no longer dance en pointe which if you aren’t familiar with different phrases associated in ballet en pointe is on your toes, for an even simpler explanation, thing toe shoes. I used to dance ballet before I switch to martial arts and dancing in toe shoes is NOT an easy thing to do, it’s rough on your body, especially your feet and takes years of practice to be able to get it right. So I felt for Emilie and the loss of doing something she loved.
The way Stone and Emilie first meet is hot and well, Emilie let’s just say isn’t happy about what happens. Stone though, he wants Emilie from the moment he first sees her and figures out a way to continue to see her. The chemistry between these two is explosive, panty wetting, and made me want a Stone of my very own. If there is one complaint about Emilie, it is some of the ways she would describes sex, or parts of anatomy, it at times was immature but beyond that I did like her character and how she kept Stone on his toes.
I have been a fan of Ms. Mousseau for a while now, and I continue to love what she writes. Stripped is a stand-alone but I would love to see more about some of the secondary characters, even if it was only in a novella. Stripped will leave you with a smile on your face, the need to change your panties, and a belief that sometimes you can find love in a strip cub.
