A story that started off well, following a great plot, steady, but nothing physically blowing me away... then suddenly it just switched for me and I just had to keep turning the pages. I could not put it down, have devoured ...more
The story starts out with Emily, her friends, and her cousin, Alana, on their way to Culture, a male strip club, for Emily's bachelorette party. These ladies have quite the time and I...more
M. Never shocked the heck out of me with the surprisingly warm, heartfelt, charming and sweet story found within the pages of Strip Me Bare. I found strippers, lawyers, broken hearts, injustice, heartache, family strain, family ties, and an amazingly wholesome attempt at a second chance at love.
Ryan and Alana fell in love five years ago. It was the stuff of legends, the type of love that everyone searches for. One night they went all the way and the next mornin ...more
It wasn't your typical stripper story and the ending was very realistic. It wasn't a fairytale, it wasn't overdone but it was completely satisfying.
I really liked Alana. She knew the risks involved in being with Ryan, but she went after what she knew was right. She was wealthy but lacked lov ...more
So let's just let this sink in. Our hero, well he's stripper. Yep. A hip-rolling-crotch-gyrating-pants-taking-off stripper. And he's hot and he knows it.
When Alana shows up at Culture for her cousins bachelorette party the last thing she expected was to find the man who took her virginity and disappeared five years ago.
But there he is, decked out in jeans and a cowboy hat riding her cousin like it's going out of style.
When Alana flees from the club ...more
That's what this book will do to ya!!. Don't say I didn't warn you ;) nobody writes hot sexy , panty melting alphas like M. Here she creates Ryan Pierce out of her imaginative mind . He's hot AF , he's smoulderingly sexy and he can mooooooove baby! . Gyrating, dry humping ladies to make them scream and shriek. Yeah cause he's the hottest stripper at Culture , an upscale club in Manhattan. In walks in Alana Remington, a prim and poised Law student who was his dream once.
Dreams shatter and life g ...more
Not my cup of tea. Disliked the fact that heroine was a wishy-washy doormat character to her father; disliked the fact that she let her insecurities/jealousy get the better of her one minute, and the ignore it the next; disliked the protagonist (who came off as snobby and elitist, in my opinion); disliked the slut shaming.
The second I saw the protagonist slut-shame characters, I was pretty much #done with the book. She was catty, petty, over jealous, and so "perfect and am ...more
“I may have had more lovers than you, and I may take my clothes off for countless women, but you are the only one who can strip me bare.”
Do you ever stop loving someone just because they’re gone?
Five years ago Ryan Pierce disappeared from Alana Remington’s life without leaving so much as a post-it note behind. He was the one she gave her heart to, her soul to and her virginity to. So imagine her surprise when she finds him dancing at on ...more
With this book, I'm really torn. I really struggled to get into it to begin with. I found Ryan a little deficient, for want of a better word. I couldn't put my finger on why but I just couldn't feel that connection. I found him frustrating.
As for Alana, I'm not often a big fan of the female lead in books and this wasn't any different. She capitulated far too quickly. I think that her family re ...more
Alana meets Ryan, they fall in love, and he takes her virginity, only to disappear the next morning. He's gone for 5 years when Alana sees him at a strip club as Jack the Stripper. Now, instead of leaving, she runs bac ...more

5 years on, and Alana is at her cousin and best friends bachelorette party at Culture, NY's male stripping venue.

Rich girl meets poor boy from the other ...more
I must confess it took me a little warming up to get into this story. The intrigue was there. Why did Ryan disappear from her life suddenly all those years ago? I didn't have to wonder long. That question was answered quickly. But Alana left me a little bit frustrated. She has this amazing guy and I must give her credit for her mature attitude towards the fact that her boyfriend is basically the hottest male s ...more
I enjoyed this second chance romance.
Alana and Ryan's relationship started five years ago. They were fire and gasoline. The two were combustible but perfect for each other and then Ryan left Alana with no word as to where in the hell he was going. It didn't help matters that she handed him her V card the night before.
Now five years later, Alana is closed off still tending to her bruised heart and wondering what went wrong. Her best friend's bachelorette party is the perfect distraction ...more
I simply love second chance romances. Yep. And MNever’s latest offering had me hooked in the Prologue and sprinting through the book almost in one sitting. I was so excited that I started to skim pages, and had to force myself to stop and re-trace steps. It was simply too good to not glean every bit of the story that M. provided for me.
Alana and Ryan met when they were young. Their relationship was short, intense and passionate. He was ...more
I've got three words for you: Jack The Stripper. Enough said. Holy hotness! You seriously can't ever go wrong with male strippers. Especially when they're super intense alpha-males intent on staking their claim.
I'm not going to lie, I was so ready to hate Ryan for just up and disappearing on Alana for 5 freakin years! Who does that?! He needed to have one hell of an excuse just to win ME over, forget Alana. Needless to say he succeeded an ...more

The Princess and the Pauper
Well if I am honest I was not sure what I would be getting with this book. For one I did not expect to cry, which I did on two occasions near the end.
Marissa has a great way of telling the story of an emotionless rich girl called Alana and a sexy stripper called Ryan.
When Alana goes to her cousins bacholerette party at her a strip club the last person she expected to see what Ryan who ran out on her five years ago afte ...more

I liked this read, it was sweet and nice with some issues. The hero's story was sad but his behaviour was utterly confusing to me. He knew what his brother was like but he loaned his car to him, albeit in good faith, but after having taken the fall for him previously and then did not even think to check his car. He had the love of his life in that car, for crying out loud!!! Not a very bright fellow it se ...more
