It’s not a secret that I have a lot of love for different types of tropes. Stripper books are one of those that I’m a sucker for. When I saw this cover, title, and, blurb, I was all in and besides, Georgia Coffman is a new to me author and I was intrigued to see what her writing style would be like.
Sebastian was intriguing to me right off the bat. He wasn’t ashamed of who he was and what he did. He was working at Naked Heat, because he had bigger and grander plans than stripping, but stripping was a necessary step to get to where he wanted to be. Sebskey had also found a brotherhood with the boys of Naked Heat, a family of sorts, and Ty and Leo were closer than brothers to Sebastian. They were with him through many of his life trials.
Kendall is the younger, estranged sister at her sister’s bachelorette party which is held at Naked Heat. Kendall is unapologetic, down to earth, quick tempered, but an all-around real individual. However, she has walls and those walls are there to not only protect herself, but to protect herself from others. She meets Sebastian while at the bachelorette party and feels a connection of sorts to him. They have a one-night stand, but is that all?
Strip for Me is all about Kendall and Sebastian stripping down their walls, insecurities, and learning to rely on another person. There were spots in the book, that they both came across as immature and Kendall also being whiny. That part of the character development killed it for me. I realize a person needs to have ‘issues’ for them to grow, but there were different spots that just seemed to be stalled, because of the way they were acting. A good portion of this book is laying down the framework for other books in the series, which also seemed to drag a little.
Despite these issues, I saw very promising writing and storytelling skills from Ms. Coffman. I am intrigued to read all about Ty and Emma in the next book. Ty is this larger than life character who always has a smile or laugh on his face.
‘Sebastian Davis makes me feel things no other guy has ever been able to do. Even with just a f@cking smirk, my knees buckle. With a touch, it all goes to H@ll. When he says I’m beautiful, the most dangerous move of all on a girl like me, I almost believe him.’
