BLOG TOUR REVIEW - Stripped by Allie Juliette Mousseau

Title: Stripped
Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau
Genre: Romantic Comedy Standalone
Published: March 29, 2016 
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?

This book pulled me in right from the start, and kept me invested right to the end, and I loved every minute of all the shenanigans and the chemistry between Stone and Emelie. 

There are many layers to Stone Wright, besides being the hottest performer at Foreplay. In addition to working with his parents real estate company, he teaches dance to children and he's working on an audition for a nationally televised talent program. And he's hot. Like "dayum, he's hot like fiyah!" And since he's Australian, you know he's got that hot accent going on. And the man definitely does dirty talk like a second language. I'm down for getting an Australian kiss!

Emelie's still recovering from the injury that has ended her ballet career, as well as the devastating break-up right after her injury. She's out in L.A. visiting with her best friend when she meets Stone in the most inappropriate, but my-hand-on-the-bible-that's-so-hot way. Stone manages to work his magic to convince Em to help him with his audition routine and from there the romance blossoms. With hot, smutty, freaky sex as a bonus!

Of course there's interference from all of the parental units, as well as the reappearance of ED (you'll have to read it to learn who ED is!), and even a quick stint in the county jail. But there is a HEA for Stone and Em, and I couldn't love this book any more than I do.
