Book Overview: So how did I get myself into this situation, you ask? 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.
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.. This book is one of best seller books in the world. Many of people very interesting to read this book.
So, your life will be regret if you never read this book on your life. Stripped Stripped, 1 by Jasinda Wilder Rar.

This includes her passion for dance, something Grey excels at. Small victories After winning a 'yes' out of her fathers mouth, Grey can now attend dance class.
This is a BIG deal too, because the little bit of freedom Grey gets is when she hangs out with her dance team members. Small victories like dance class leads to friends.
Friends lead to more freedom. Grey now has a semblance of a teenage life and she is now exposed to parties, alcohol and horny teenage boys. It also provides a glimpse for her to finally see what others think of her. Film becomes her main focus as dance is put on the back burner.
She knowingly begins to film a life altering.. This eventually leads her across the country to L. Desperate times call for desperate measures Things are good for a while until her scholarship fund runs low.
After months and months of looking for a job that can cover her half of tuition Grey does something she never thought she would do. She becomes desperate and applies for a job as a stripper. The crazy thing is Grey's innocence plays a huge role in why she gets the job. According to her boss it somehow accentuates her sensuality. Of course the perv has no clue she is an actual virgin.
Three of them are stunningly gorgeous. The fourth? Kellan and Rush. If you are not familiar with these two men you need to be. Once he wanted Grey it was a wrap..
Dawson brings out all these intense emotions in Grey. Simply put, the man is irresistible. He gradually strips away the plaster in the wall that Grey uses as a blockade to keep him away. And once he has her, he does not let go.
My Thoughts I very much enjoyed this book! I loved the shout out to the movie Fireproof, with Kirk Cameron. If you have not seen that movie I definitely think you should watch it.
I just think the synopsis is leading. I have mixed feelings on the flow. Readers get a pretty in depth background story on Grey; as the story starts she is in her teens and it progresses.
This really helped me understand and empathize more with her character. There are choices she makes as an adult which are a direct result of her upbringing. I also felt like Grey was in her own head too much, she was definitely an over thinker and over thinking results in long inner monologues.
On the flip side of that we do get good character interactions, this is mainly due to the fact that the book is a nice length. For all those wondering you do get a HFN ending. However, surprisingly view spoiler [ No epilogue, at least not in the ARC. Which was a bummer. Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it on Goodreads!

She plugs along until her school informs her that her grant is running out of funds. If her internship at Fourth Dimension production studios continues to go well she has been promised permanent position, but she needs money to stay in school and graduate.
After searching for a job for weeks she succumbs and takes a job as a semi-nude stripper. Her beauty and innocence combined with her background in dance quickly makes her the most popular stripper in the club.
One of them is Dawson Kellor. The attraction is instantaneous and electric. Gracie finds herself dancing just for him. Imagine her chock the next day when she arrives at her internship for the first cast meeting for an upcoming movie, and finds Dawson starring as the lead. And so their whirlwind romance begins…. Very much a fairy tale with a movie star who can have any girl he wants zeroing in on Grey.
He is determined to have her at any cost, while Grey is determined to stay hidden and in school. And both have demons in their pasts plus there is the issue of a stark difference in experience. And I want you all to myself. And for me he is what kept the story going. Seven words to describe Dawson: Eight words to describe Grey: Clearly Dawson is set on having Grey and though he is very good at expressing himself it never quite made sense to me. I did not feel the plot needed for Grey to be quite so helpless.
Swoon-worthy hero! Interesting plot idea! Seductive setting Hollywood! I am glad I got to meet the Dawson Kellor! Tell me, so I can give it to you.
Yes, maybe. Would I re-read this book: Probably not. Would I read future books by this author: View all 87 comments. She packed her bags and heads to California to college, to follow her passion..
She's determined to prove to herself that she can follow her dreams. But after while, she is realizing that she must either pay for her school or either go back and leave her dreams.. She tries to find a job And then she meets Dawson Kellar The chemistry between them is intense from the beginning As they end up, they are spending more time together and go deeper Dawson is so adorable!!
Not expecting anything in return from her, he wants to make sure she is safe and happy!! And this is why i love him!!!! The things he does for her So hot!!! My Grey and Dawson View all 66 comments. Jun 22, Christy rated it really liked it. He wants Grey to have nothing to do with anything he deems to be sinful or ungodly Thankfully, Grey has her mother on her side. Dancing is a release to Grey. As she gets older and starts to become her own person, she finds she also has a passion for film.
Things take a dramatic t 4 stars!!!! She has to go to the college she wants to, follow her own dreams no matter what that means for her life and her relationship with her father. Grey is in California going to film school.
She keeps to herself mostly, works hard to get good grades. She wants to excel. After a few semesters at school, she finds herself in a bit of a bind. She has to get a job and pay her own way. She will do whatever she has to do. No one is hiring. No job, no money, no school. Whats a girl to do? Grey Amundsen, 20 year old virgin applying for a job to be a stripper???
Although stripping is the very last thing Grey ever wanted to do, it brings in the money she needs to continue with school and thats all that matters.
It makes Grey ill doing it, but she knows it is only temporary. She is almost to graduation, she has a good internship lined up, things are on the right track for her, even if she is playing the role of Gracie at the local strip club.
The night before her internship, Grey is at work. She has a private party. There are only a few guys there. She recognizes the first few as actors, then she sees him. A big name film star, Dawson Kellor. Dawson Kellor.
My heart stops, my breath catches. But none of that does him justice.
Not even close. Dawson appears to be a rich, spoiled, rich actor, but he sees something in Grey.

When he first lays eyes on her, he knows she is different. There is something about her. The next day, Grey starts her internship and her two worlds collide. Dawson has it bad for Grey. He is enamored with her. Grey has no idea what someone like Dawson Kellor would see in her. She is a plain jane from Georgia who strips for tuition. He could have anyone. On top of all that, she is inexperienced and she knows he is not. Dawson is a man used to getting what he wants, and he wants Grey.
I could snap my fingers and have six girlfriends, one for every day of the week and Sunday off. I want you. All he wants is to help her, he cares about her, wants her. Desires her. Dawson and Grey together Not only do these two have a connection, and a lot of heat between them, there is more than that. Even though they are very different people from different backgrounds, they get each other. I love that feeling. Someone to keep him grounded, someone who actually makes him feel something for the first time in his life.
Dawson was all kinds of cocky, protective, possessive, sexy, sweet and amazing. Loved this guy. He was good for Grey- she was able to be herself with him. Not the person her father wanted her to be, not the good quiet student who worked too hard to enjoy anything in life.
Grey drove me a little mad at times, but she grew on me by the end of the book. I especially loved the two of them together. A story about a young girls journey to leave her sheltered past and become her own person. It was that good in between. If you are expecting the same type of story, the same type of feelings, you will be let down.
The writing is still incredible, the story was original, I enjoyed the characters, it was overall a very good read. Yes, you read that right View all 61 comments. Aug 06, Sara rated it did not like it. I just.. I don't know. Stripping, crying, puking, and more annoyances from a crap heroine that I wanted to throttle.
I was disappointed in this book. Not only did the heroine suck, the story was all over the place. Mostly this heroine stuttered, cried and not just tears, full on breakdown on the floor sobbing, a lot puked, stripped, flirted, then un flirted yep that's what i said. She was so full of mixed signals I got eye whiplash. She annoyed me to no end. Dawson was ok. His insta love Um.. His insta love was a bit ridiculous and he was relentless in his pursuit of her.
But he was a rich super star and all so he spoiled the crap out of her. That was kinda cute. But there was also a lot of unrealistic stuff that just threw me off the story.
Just wasnt my thing I guess. And Dawson, I get it. Your so hot and rich you could have a different girl every day of the week. Need you actually say that out loud?? I am a fan of Jasinda, just not of this particular book. Moving on View all 15 comments. Jun 22, Smitten's Book Blog rated it it was amazing Shelves: So, this book came out today. I was sooo excited to read it and I was given my ARC but only just gotten round to reading it.
And it did not disappoint. You guys need to go one-click it right now. I absolutely love Jasinda Wilder. I always love her storytelling, her characters. And this was no exception. When I found out she was writing a book about a virginal stripper who meets a playboy movie star, I was stoked.
What a brilliant premise for a contemporary romance. And I knew Jasinda would execut So, this book came out today. And I knew Jasinda would execute it fabulously. Stripped is all about Grey Amundsen, the pastor's daughter from Georgia.
She's an untouched virgin and has lived by her Daddy's rules her whole life, until she decides enough is enough. Fleeing to LA to pursue an education and career in the film industry, Grey finds herself struggling to pay her way through college. And that's when she finds herself taking a job a stripper.
And if she thinks her life has taken a turn around already, when Dawson Keller walks into her strip club and requests a dance from her, he flips her world on it's axis.
Stripped by Jasinda Wilder
I want to tell you when you're being ridiculous. I want to make love to you. I want to fuck you. I want to hold you. I want to be yours. The desirable, powerful alpha male who falls for the innocent, unworldly girl. Some readers might think they are overdone, but I can't get enough of them. There's something endlessly swoon-worthy about a strong male lead who whisks his damsel in distress off her feet.
And that is exactly what Dawson does. I really enjoyed reading Grey. I wasn't totally in love with her at first. She's prissy, a prude, naive and childlike. But it's easily forgiven, given her up bringing, and as the book progressed, I liked her more and more. I'm the girl who's off-limits. I'm the pastor's daughter. I loved Dawson. From the very beginning, I was head over heels.
This book introduces us to Dawson after his womanising, playboy days.
When we meet Dawson, he's turned himself around and he's trying to be a better person. So we don't need to start off hating and grow to love him, we can just fall hard from the get-go. I'm pretty easy to please, really Because you get me worked up and then I can't get off on my own because if feels wrong, and I need to let it out, so I work out.

You turn me on, just breathing. He wades in and saves our poor Grey, in every way possible. Emotionally, physically, financially He's yummy, he's totally 'alpha', he's rich, he's successful. He's perfect.
He brings her breakfast in bed, he massages her feet and he gives her a Range Rover. Men could learn a whole lot from Dawson Keller, right there! I pee and I miss the toilet. I take shits. I eat cheeseburgers. I watch baseball and drink beer. Wooowwww, anyone got a fire extinguisher?! For a book about a virginal pastor's daughter, this book is loaded with scorchingly steamy sex scenes. Yeh, I loved that, too! It takes a little while for Grey and Dawson to get it together, but once they do, these two are like rabbits.
But hey, wouldn't you be if a sexy movie star was trying to woo you into bed? I'm having to remind myself to keep breathing, because you take my breath away. Grey couldn't even think the word 'cock', and she never wore her skirt above the knee I just didn't see it being possible. But she totally nailed it! It worked. And then some. And that's what makes it all the more sexy. Grey's journey was a great read.
She went from her sheltered childhood, to the what she hoped would be the glitz of LA, but was, in reality, the hardship of making it on her own. The struggles she faced as her job as an 'exotic dancer' definitely got me on side.
I wanted to have her back. Where she would have seen herself as weak, she was showing strength and survival instincts. That part of story is sordid, emotional and raw. My name is Grey Amundsen. But Grey, she doesn't exist in here, in this slimy, smoky, sex-hazed hole.
In here, I'm Gracie. And then Dawson offers her security, and you witness yet another change in her. She finds herself, finds who she wants to be, finds who she's capable of being.
And he does the same, but in a different way. I loved how he nurtured her, gently, patiently coaxed her, drew her personality out, overcame her insecurities, loved and protected her and allowed her to grow.
Absolutely adorable. She comes up with great, original story-lines, builds characters brilliantly, creates delicious, sexual tension, draws on passionate emotion and executes the whole thing flawlessly. Her books just seem to draw me in and make me want to put everything on hold. I adore that feeling. And Stripped is just another example of this. What are you waiting for? Go out a buy it, ladies!

And then there is Dawson Dawson is alpha male, he's powerful, rich and just freaking adorable at times too. I thought the chemistry between Grey and Dawson was great. There was an equal balance of sexual tension and tease to keep me interested. I would say there was an instant attraction when they first meet, but there's plenty of chase to keep up the friction. As if I mean something to him.
I want you I kind of want to put the disclaimer out there and say this isn't like the typical Jasinda Wilder books. I love this direction. I can't really describe Stripped as light because it's not, yet I can't describe it as heavy, because it isn't. It's like I said before, you will cry and laugh at the same time.
If the story line interests you, read it. If you love Jasinda Wilder, read it. If you want a good read, just read it.

But first Let me briefly tell you what it's about Grey is a pastor's daughter, who after her mother's death, gets really sick of her father's lifestyle and the way he controls her life.
She wants to do what she wants and feels is right. So against his 'wishes' she rans off to film school in L. However, money is soon running out and so she hasn't got any choice but to strip her way through col How did this get from a possible 5 star read to a 3? However, money is soon running out and so she hasn't got any choice but to strip her way through collage or go back home which is not an option.
With her beautiful body and dance moves, she soon becomes very popular at what she does There Grey meets the hottest movie star sex god on the planet He can not take his eyes off of her. She's different from others girls. All he knows is he wants her..
He wants to know why there is sadness and desperation in her eyes. But will she open up to him? Will she let him in? Will Grey fall into the world of sin, and if she will, is she going to be lost forever or can she redeem herself?
Beginning It started off really, really well. The writing style and plot pulled me into the story that i thought would be very beautiful and inspiring. When Grey stood up for herself, didn't let her father make decisions for her and actually said what she thought, i was all like..
I loved her then! But sadly that didn't last long. But then she became more cliche, pathetic, naive and just simply stupid throughout the book. I haven't wanted to bitch slap a character this bad since a few weeks now. She was the reason this book ended up just 'ehh' for me. Grey went to get the strip dance job, right? It could have been million times worse but yet she still complains. Every time after a dance she rans to the toilet and throws up. Even whilst dancing she sometimes cries.
And i'm just like I understand her actions when she began doing that, but you'd think after 3 months the girl would get used to it. All she does is continue on crying,crying and crying. At that point i'm like Grey was such an annoying protagonist i wanted to strangle her. Protective, hot, caring, thoughtful and not to mention swoon worthy! He always helped Grey and wanted to be there for her. He did these little and not so little things for her that made my heart melt.
Every time Dawson was with her and actually didn't thought her to be a pathetic little girl, i was like 'are you dumb or something? I think he deserves someone much better than Grey.
The plot and the book in general had a LOT of potential, sadly it didn't live up to it. What's the point? It only takes away the full enjoyment of a book, and makes readers decrease their rating. Seriously, just stop. When i reached the end i was just like It was kind of ridiculous, cheesy, and unrealistic. It felt like the author had no idea what she was writing about. I was just zooming out and skipping paragraphs because i couldn't be bothered anymore.
I just didn't care at that point.. I still managed to like this book enough to finish. It was an OK read. Could have been SO much more. Sincerely - The Critic View all 46 comments. Jun 21, Spoiler Whore-Momoa rated it it was ok Shelves: I really liked the concept and the blurb.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. As I'm reading the book my hope plummets. It failed The story was boring, predictable and just blah. The chemistry, if there was any, between the characters I didn't feel. I didn't get. The "love" scenes were not the best but it wasn't the worst.
The 2. The story had soooo much potential but sadly I wasn't impressed. It's not a memorable story so don't ask what happened in the book. And then she did it I don't know how many dot dot dots there were but it was plenty to point this out.
ARC given out for an honest review View all 8 comments. Jun 21, Miriam Mathew rated it liked it Shelves: It's safe to say that I've had some very high expectations for this book. It's a very Oh, and when I said stripper? I meant that the heroine was a virginal stripper. Yes, you've heard THAT right. I can see those looks of disbelief right now but I don't blame you.
Even I still have difficulty understanding that concept. It's just hard to imagine a person who takes off her clothes and entertain people for money is an innocent, doe-eyed virgin who flinches at contact with men. It's really hard to imagine such a thing, but maybe that's just because I'm a very cynical person.
My glass is always half empty. So that's partly one of the reasons why I expected so much from this book. In a way, I got what I wanted. As erotica, it was very well written and very spicy. Okay fine, that's a bit of an understatement. The sex scenes? Here's a tip for anybody looking to read it in the near future, read this book in an air-conditioned room.
You're going to need it. Trust me. It was just so hawt and the chemistry was off the charts! I finally understand the need for cold showers. Anyway, onto the characters. I didn't once connect with her throughout the story. Maybe because she was so busy playing hard-to-get with Dawson and I was literally begging her to stop being so damn difficult. It was infuriating. I mean I get it. I get it. I get that she was sheltered throughout her entire life before she came to Los Angeles.
But she's been a stripper for more than two years now. You'd think she'd adapt to her special situation. If her unwillingness and narrow-mindedness didn't piss me off, her insecurity would do the job.
Her excessive insecurity was on the same level of Bella Swan from Twilight which is saying like a lot. Who am I? Who am I, that this man loves me? But this glorious man, this near-deity…he loves me. What am I, that he feels so strongly about me?
What do I offer? Grey Amundsen doesn't look at the good qualities and things she has to offer. Instead she continually asks herself why a god-like man I'm not arguing with her description there chooses to love her even though he already has provided like a hundred reasons.
And the worst thing is, it continues. But he barely knows me, and what if he finds someone else? Someone prettier? Someone more experienced? It would ruin me. No longer a virgin. I feel like an impostor sometimes. She doesn't stop. She just goes on and on about how Dawson is too good for her, yada yada yada. And if she's not doing that, she's thinking about how being with Dawson was sinful. But I do. And why not? It was sin.
I stink of Dawson. I reek of his musk, his essence, his touch. I could have understood her reasons at the start but she was thinking about Dawson like that all the time. Give me a break. Or better, cry me a river, build a bridge and get over it. It's safe to say, me and Grey have a hate-hate relationship. Meet Dawson He's sexy. He's sweet.
He's romantic. Dawson is one of those mainstream types seen in erotica. If you compiled a checklist for him, then every box would be ticked: He's a former man-whore who gave up his philandering way for Grey. He's filthy rich. No, really. He could burn money at the rate that he earns it. He's the sexiest guy to cross the earth.
He'll chase after his woman , no matter how many 'Fuck Off' signals she gives him. But hey, apparently women find this hot I have no idea why though.
Usually I'm sick of reading about men like that in books. I hate those ass-holes, I just hate them. Jasinda Wilder just wrote about Dawson in such a way that I would concentrate on his good qualities rather than his minuscule bad ones. He's an alpha male who likes occasionally to be "dominated" by Grey and is turned on by it. I'm not complaining though. Alpha males are sexy. His eyes. Dawson's goddamned eyes. This is a negative aspect There's starting to be a trend in books like these where the guys always have "quick-changing" eyes depending on their moods.
Dawson is one such man. His eyes are quicksilver, a changeable hazel. I'm really confused. How the hell can eyes change to so many colours?!?!? I've never seen that before in my life. Not eyes that can change to hazel then to brown, magically transform into moss-green or start to go a little blue. Apparently it is possible. It's not something that I'm mad about, it's just something that irked me throughout the book. And even if it did make me mad, it's just impossible for me to stay mad at Dawson.

I mean look at the cover and blurb. It screams hot right? What I did not expect was a sensual, erotic and provocative read that melted my heart with love, romance and heartbreak.
It was intense, be This Review was posted at Angie's Dreamy Reads "A sensuous, erotic and breathtaking romance that breaks molds, shatters thoughts and makes you feel alive. It was intense, beautifully written, well paced, perfectly developed and absolutely addicting.
It had it all. Everything I could have wanted in a book. The characters were so beautifully crafted that the only thing you could do was savor every word and love them wholeheartedly. Honestly I was blown away by just how emotionally gripping this book was. I was only a couple chapters in and crying already. You just love Gray immediately. She is one hell of a girl. I think Jasinda Wilder books are one of my new favorite addictions. This woman's writing is absolutely stunning, clear, precise and the picture and story that is written for the reader could not be better.
I loved this book. I loved this story. This book is one that I would re-read, come back to and remember. Grey is a good girl. Her father is a Baptist preacher who is overbearing and extremely strict. This has sheltered her from so many of life's everyday struggles. Being naive, sweet hearted and always doing the right thing has lead Gray to feel frustrated. Not only is she frustrated but she feels trapped, smothered and I think lonely.
The way she expresses herself is through dance. She uses dance to channel all her inner thoughts and feelings. Her father allows her this one thing. As Gray dances something happens with her mother. Her mother who has always been the voice of reason in her life. The only one who Gray felt truly loved her and accepted her for who she is. When life strikes it leaves her at a crossroads. She has to chose between her father and a new passion that she wants to pursue.
Gray is left in a very emotionally charged situation. She takes a job as a Stripper. A man, no She is one of the most lovely characters I have read. She makes you fall so in love with her and feel all her pain.
