Okay so I kinda messed up and read this series out of order. This was suppose to be the first book and Then Stripped Raw, but other than knowing what happens to Jason(the hero from Stripped Raw) it wasn't a real big deal. These books can be read as stand alones easily. That being said I liked this book better than Stripped Raw. There was only one thing that kept this from being a five star for me and that is (view spoiler)

3.5 stars

For a first time author this was a good book. As usual when reading someone new (for me in any case) it did take me a bit to get used to her writing style and get into the story. Also I think it took the author a bit to get in a nice rhythm within her story.

Our heroine is Sally. A once promising young accountant that has lost her way. A previous relationship has destroyed her confidence. She has let that really bring her down. Though I can see how that could happen I couldn't , personal

My Thoughts - Story
This is the first time I have read one of Ms. Moon’s books and I was pleasantly surprised.

I loved these characters: from Sally who from a prior relationship has turned into a shell of herself. Locked up in her apartment, she has a probl
Sally was in love and the humiliation of her lover’s betrayal, especially when everyone knew but her was devastating. To protect herself, she hid away from the world of men, locked down her heart and tossed the key, leaving her only half alive, depressed and only able to dream of the life she wants. Her life was about to change as she began to see her future in the soulful eyes of a boy from her past. Damien is definitely not a boy anymore. He is all the man Sally could want, and then some, but ...more

3,75 "Keep fighting" stars from me!!

An overall enjoyable story with an intense and emotional plot, where you see how a person like Sally chose to turn to herself away from people after a devastating relationship with a "man" who decided/chose to listen others and not his girlfriend and as a result humiliation and pain took charge and destroyed anything beautiful they had at first.

After long time and from a happy person to an introvert and shy with low self esteem Sally's life took a new turn

Sally went from out going and on top of the world to introverted recluse after the emotional abuse doled out by her ex. Her amazing job and happy spark died with their relationship. Two years alter, she lives under her best friend/pseudo big brother Jason and works from home. Until her friend Macy brings Damien to meet her. Sally remembers Damien from high school but Damien is all grown up. His military career and secret assignments have made him all muscle and confidence. Sparks fly and Sally ...more

Sexy. Angsty. Romantic.
I liked the realistic-like, bumpy, troubled road Sally has to travel to unbreak her heart and find true love; kissing a Mr. Wrong and a Mr. Okay to finally find her Mr. Right. Sally finds her true happiness and strength when she is finally true to herself.
Four men and only one Sally! So what's a girl to do?! Well, search her heart and her soul for her destined "the one" and hope she can withstand all the heartache and heart-joy's of that love, or will it strip her bare!

"Stripped Bare by Rebecca Moon" is a stand-alone novella and the first book in "The Warnum - Bailiff Series." Many thanks to the Author Rebecca Moon for providing me with the free digital copy to review. I give this book 4 stars. “Stripped Bare” is a sweet love story filled with beauty, heartache and forgiveness. There are a lot of twists & turns in the story which makes it a page turner. The review is short in order to not give awaya lot about thestory.

Sally really does have it all. A perfect job that she absolutely loves, and a handsome boyfriend that she adores. Shane was everything Sally ever looked for in a lover, caring, attentive and doting. But that all changes when he gets caught up in the ramblings of a scorned friend. Shane soon believes all the lies he's being told about Sally. The infidelity, the lies and the sneaking around sees Shane treating Sally much differently these days.

Sally Parker is just a shell after changing her life to please someone else. Her self esteem is non exstant. She is now 'hiding' from life. Working from home and rarely going outside it's door. I could really relate to Sally as I saw my own Mother change to try to make a man happy and she also was a living 'shell'.

She has a few really good friends Chelsea, Macy and Jason. They don't know what to do help her get her self esteem back. Through Macy she reconnects with an old school friend, Damien J

Sally has had the life and soul of her stripped down to nothing even after 2 years she is still in this tormented and broken place.

Damien back from the navy and catching up with Macy a mutual friend of both his and Sally's and intrigued about who Sally is after all this time meets them both for coffee.
Damien sees that Sally's not who she used to be that she's broken and scared but deep down he can still see a tiny piece of the Sally he knew shining through and he's going after it. Desires run

We meet Sally who was constantly humilated and degraded by her first love. This leads to Sally nit having not having any confidence she shuts herself away from the world.

Luckily she has 3 great friends in Macy, Chelsea and Jason. It's through that Sally meets up with with old school friend Damien.

Damien is a elite naval officer that can make girls knees trembles just from a smile. He has the sort of eyes that feel like that they are looking straight into your soul.

Stripped Bare by Rebecca Moon is a heartwarming, entertaining book. This is the first book in the series.

Sally has been burned by men, well mostly her first boyfriend Shane. It took Sally over 2 years after leaving Shane to move on. With the help of her close friends Sally got re-equated with an old friend from high school, Damien. Unable to deny his attraction to Sally, Damien knew he needed to be extra careful with her. He could tell she had been burned in the past, but he wasn’t sure to what

I truly enjoyed this story. It’s got all the makings of a good romance: passion, angst, disappointment, and reconciliation. And, it has a lovable rescue dog. Both Damien and Sally are both affected by their past relationships. Sally suffers from emotional scaring while Damien’s complications are more of an encumbrance. In either case, both of their pasts have an effect on their present relationships. As a result, poor assumptions are made and feelings are hurt. The key to making a relationship ...more

I read this book not knowing what to expect. I am not usually a romance, let alone erotic/romance reader and was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the characters in the script. Rebecca Moon has managed to make the characters all very real and relatable. The storyline flows well with a good mix of romance and sex/erotica. I am putting my hand up and saying that Rebecca Moon has me hanging for her next book!

Your heart is splintered into a million pieces.
Your self esteem, non existent.
It's hard to breathe through the hurt and pain.
You have no idea how you'll get through this.
The love of your life has completely damaged you beyond repair.
You question yourself.
What did you do?
How could you have made it better?
What more could you have done to hold on to the one solid person in your life?

But there was nothing you could've done.
He through you out.
Where do you go from here?

Residing in the outer suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, I have always had a love of writing and after years of stories bouncing around in my head I decided to put pen to paper and Stripped Bare, my first novel, was created.
As a grown woman I am now very family orientated and fairly straight laced, although you wouldn't think so from reading my novels.
