"Mel? Nope. Sorry. No can do."
"Why not?"
"Mel is the name of a line cook. Saying, 'Suck harder, Mel,' or 'Bend over, Mel,' brings totally different images to my mind than I'm gonna fuck you through the wall, Melissa."

Can you get a highly satisfying and enjoyable steamy romance in just a short 120 pages? In the case of this book; also-fucking-lutely. There's a reason I've read practically every book in Lorelei's backlist and this book is the perfect example why.

4 'Sidekicks' Stars!

So glad Lorelei continued the stories of this family! I loved Sutton and now it was time for Wyn! Absolutely loved him and Mel's chemistry! The sparks start flying from the beginning and when these two finally accepted their feelings, it was amazing to read it. Kinda missed having an epilogue on this one but still really enjoyed it! Can't wait for Cres' story (love me some MM action!).

Oh wow. Just wow.

This little novella demonstrates perfectly how a talented author can wrap up a sweet romance, smutty hot sex and a nice plot in only a few pages.
Actually I prefer the term man-slut, Manwhore implies I take money for something I do very well. For free.

I haven’t read much of Lorelei James’ books yet, but let me tell you one thing : Stripped Down took me on a real cowboy binge and boy did I enjoy the ride!

I didn't find it necessary to change the heroine name to mine because hello the heroines name is Melissa and that me. So it's obvious the heroine is me. Well, except I've never been on the rodeo circuit, and I don't have red hair, I mean I did once a long time ago, oh and I sure haven't banged a hot super man slut that goes by the name Wynton, but does it really matter?! I think not.

I loved the banter between Wynton and Melissa. Both cocky in their own rights and fu

Stripped Down was eye-opening. Never actually believed people would hook up during a wedding but I'm also not surprised that it happened in this book either. At first, I wasn't a big fan of Melissa and Wyn. I could see the sparks and everything but the first half of this book was just annoying to get through.

Thankfully, it was an audio and I quickly flew through this.

Then came the second part, which was honestly much better. Unfortunately, I was just so annoyed that I couldn't fully apprecia

This novella happens after the sixth book of the Blacktop Cowboys series. Reading this novella really got me interested in the series and hopefully, sooner than later, I will get to them.

But back to the novella, I really liked the way the two characters interacted between each other. Their banter entertained me a lot though I wasn't a fan of their nicknames, but it doesn't change anything really hahaha Wynton and Melissa are both thinking alike when it comes to sex and it was bound to be hot whe

I'm sure most people are going to love this story, and the second half was cute; but the overly long first part was zero stars for me. I don't have a problem with hooking up at a wedding; but when Melissa and Wyn tried to outslut each other, and regaled each other with details of all their numerous and varied sexual conquests...well, let's just say it did somewhat less than nothing for me.

Still love this series and LJ, and looking forward to the next book. Also...props to James for a well resear
I can always count on LJ to give me a good, naugthy read. Super Man-Slut Wynton and Amazing Slut-Girl Melanie were the best!

Oooh I really liked this story, the banter and the no judgment about each other’s pasts was really nice. No one got jealous because they both had lives before each other.

I do love with a perpetually single man falls and falls hard.
Melissa is pretty much an open book but with her health that is a different story. Being that her diagnoses was also kind of new for her I can understand why she thought she needed to hide it.

This love story was just sweet and fit well with the
Love Love LOVED this novella! STRIPPED DOWN was an all around SEXY good time! Steamy, sexual, and plenty emotional, this little gem of a book will bring a huge smile to your face, a blush to your cheeks, and a heaviness to your heart. BIG things come in this sexy little package!

OMG! There is plenty of dirty talk right off the bat. Lorelei James wastes NO time at all. I could NOT stop smiling the entire time. I adored this man hooks up with maid of honor. I mean COME ON, that is PE

I'm a big fan of the 1001 Dark Nights Series; they're short and sweet treats with romance, erotica, and usually a very good storyline that keeps me interested and wanting to read more of them.

That being said, this one just didn't leave as big of an impact on me as others have! It was good, to me, but not great, and was fairly "meh". I have a few ideas as to why that is though.

First, this is a western romance. I'm not a big western romance fan in general, I don't read a lot of those bo
Once again, I have to ask myself, what the hell was I thinking? Sure, I'm kind of struggling to find something to read that I'm actually going to enjoy, and sure I kind of figured that I'd pull out LJ for the second time this week in the hope that she'll redeem herself in my eyes. But the reality is that I seriously loathed this book!!!
Mel was kinda awesome and balls to the wall in Ropped In, in a way that LJ can make cowgirls who have a bit of a wild streak and aren't afraid of their own sexual

Let there be HOT cowboys! This short story reminded me of everything I love about reading a Lorelei James book. It’s sweet and sexy perfection.

STRIPPED DOWN follows after ROPED IN. This is Sutton’s brother Wynton’s story and London’s best friend Melissa. With Sutton and London’s wedding in full swing, there’s no better idea than for the best man and the maid of honor to hook up. Especially being they are both as a bit of sluts. The chemistry is instant, sparks fly right off the bat and their

This one really started out with a bang. I really loved the by-play between Melissa and Wynton. Neither seemed to take themselves too seriously and I really liked that neither was embarrassed that they liked sex and didn't care who knew it. It was fun how they would compare general stories and find out how much they had in common.

I didn't like the secret that Melissa was hiding, knew that it would come back to bit her and in a way that would really hurt her. I was glad that Wynton's brother was

Wham, bam thank you ma’am!!!!
This was a quick read that started out dirty & naughty that turned into a sweet and loving story. Wyn and Melissa have wonderful little nicknames for each other that just cracked me up!!! These two are two peas in a pod and make a perfect couple. Ms. James packs a lot into a very short story all while making you feel like you are reading a full length novella.

Lorelei James’ Blacktop Cowboys & Rough Rider series are two of my favorite contemporary romance/erotica western series. Ever since picking up my first Rough Rider novel I was hooked. She has a way of bringing the characters to life that I found myself so invested in them and their stories that I actually considered visiting Wyoming just to see if these amazing people really existed and of course she writes some of the steamiest, I need a cold shower sex scenes around and Stripped Down is no dif

Wynton “Wyn” Grant is best man for his younger brother, Sutton, who met the love of his life, London, a mere six months ago (Sutton and London’s story was the focus of the first novella, Roped In). Melissa “Mel” Lockhart is the best friend and maid of honor for the bride. While London has made attempts to set up Wyn and Mel, it wasn’t until the wedding until the pair meet, and instant fireworks erupted. Two peas-in-a-pod, each enjoys sex and being with one another.

Yeehaw! The latest in the 1001 Dark Nights series, Lorelei James' newest Blacktop Cowboys novella goes from 0 to 60 in record time and never loses speed. Wynton Grant is best man for Sutton Grant who we met in Roped In. Melissa Lockhart is maid of honor to Sutton's bride, London Gradsky. After some intense flirting at the reception, Wyn and Mel hook up for what each thought would be a one and done encounter. But fate changes things.

WOW - LOVED this novella!!! This was actually my first foray into cowboy romance and I was surprised at just how much I enjoyed it. Who knew?!

Wynton Grant and Melissa Lockhart are in the wedding party of Sutton and London (who were in a previous book). The two are instantly attracted to each other and both assume their hook-up at the wedding will be a one-night stand. Little do they know that an emergency in Wynton's family will turn things upside down and that Melissa will be helping out on the

Sexy ,fun, fast paced romp in the adventures of Amazing Slut-Girl and Super Man-Slut. Wynton and Melissa were perfectly paired and equally matched. What started out as a wedding hook-up turned into a sweet romance. Over a period of a month a great friendship and an ever better partnership develops between the pair when Melissa comes Wynton's aid at the ranch. Her horsewoman skills are going to help him out and they get to spend their nights tearing up the sheets. Melissa has a secret that she's ...more

I really enjoyed this novella in the 1001 Dark Nights series. This is from Lorelei James’ Blacktop Cowboy series. I had not read any other books in the series, but followed the story line with ease. The lead characters meet at Wyn’s brother’s wedding. Melissa is the Maid-of-Honor and Wyn in the best man. Both have similar personalities and s3xual adventures.

I loved the humor the author brought to the story. They affectionately call each other Super Man-Slut and Amazing Slut-Girl. For a novella

Spoiler Ahead This was book 6.6 in the "Blacktop Cowboy" and I love reading this series so much that I didn't realize that I skipped a few books. Wynton Grant and Melissa Lockhart hook up after playing a game at truth or dare and what a hook up it was. They both carried baggage of their own and they both had given up on the whole marriage thing and neither one believed that they would find love. This was a really hot read with a lot of hot dirty talk and sexy scenes. These two have really good c ...more

Mel meets Wyn at her best friend's wedding and the sparks fly from the moment they lay eyes on each other. They tease each other during the wedding and then when Wyn needs help on his ranch, Mel is volunteered by her best friend to help Wyn out. She agree to stay for 3 weeks but gets more than she bargained for in the process.

I really liked this quick, sexy read. Mel and Wyn are both certified sluts so they feel they are a good match for each other and it turns out that they are, in the bedroom

I loved that the characters didn't hide their pasts in this story - they both like to have sex, and had a past that reflected that. They weren't ashamed, but embraced their love of life and fun times. They even had nicknames for each other that reflected this fact

I loved that the characters ended up with each other almost by accident, but they accepted that as fact, and didn't overthink or worry about it. They fit and that was that, though they didn't have flowy declarations, it was there in the
When the hot, hard and sexy cowboy Wynton meets his sexual match at his brother's wedding the bride and groom aren't the only couple turning their sparks into fire in the ready room. Wynton proves why he's the BEST MAN for the Maid of Honor Melissa and just once isn't going to be nearly enough for these two.

The banter between Wynton and Melissa is more fun than anything I have gotten to read in a long time. This may have been a Blacktop Cowboys Novella but wow, does it pack a punch...and a whole

Lorelei James not only added another awesome novella to the Blacktop Cowboys series, she also put in a very common medical issue without taking away any seriousness. You felt it coming and yet left you scared.

Wynton and Melissa are the perfect match. Right from the beginning it was clear they didn't stand a chance to fight their chemistry.

I do hope we see them again, maybe in a story about Cres and
