Ava has a one nightstand with the one man in all of New York that she should steer clear of as he ends up representing a client that is suing her for supposedly copying one of his designs. Ava works hard on everything she does and knows she didn't copy anything but the odds seem to be stacked against her. Nate is facing a moral dilemma as he battles representing someone he doesn't believe in against someone he's very much attracted to. These two have great chemistry and flow very well together I ...more

***4 "Wait for me!!!" stars***

This was a lovely and very enjoyable story...
I had such a wonderful time in the company of these people, especially Ava's and Nate's, but i liked the rest of the guys, as well!!!

I haven't read the previous book of "Travesty" series but i had zero problem with that, I just learned many things about the previous couple since it's connecting with Ava very much....
But enough with that....

"Yes. This was what I’d wanted. A guy like this, on a night like this. Fun.
3 Stars

Overall Opinion: I enjoyed this one for the most part. The h got a little too judgmental and kind of fizzled out for me in the end, but I loved her character at first. The H was a damaged but loyal guy that I enjoyed. I was mainly frustrated with the ending. The way the lawsuit got eventually handled?!...yeah that ticked me off. I mean why couldn't that have happened WAY sooner?!? It would've resolved SO much of their issues. It was just all too quick and neatly wrapped up in the end for

Out of all Piper's books, this one was hands down my favorite.

4 Stars for Stripped...or better called ”The Designer & The Suit”

A very cute story about a one night stand between a lawyer and a designer...


...that a few months later turns into a Big complication when they find themselves sitting on opposing sides in the courtroom...


A perfect read for a lazy Sunday afternoon...pretty predictable but a great read nonetheless....

This book had me laughing so hard I nearly peed in my pants and blush so hot I thought I would spontaneously combust. It also made me swoon with some cute and romantic moments. This is my second Piper Lawson’s book and it held all its promises.

What would you do if the hottest one night stand of your life sued you for copying his client’s work?
That’s what's happening to Ava in Stripped. Stripped takes place where Schooled left us and should be read in order. Ava and Lex

Ava is in New York with her bestie to see some people about their fledgling fashion business when she meets a hot guy in a bar. They immediately fall in lust and an epic one night stand follows. Months later, with the friends now permanently living in New York and on the wrong side of a lawsuit, who should be the lawyer on the opposite side of the table? Yup, hot guy from the bar.

This book is totally swoon worthy and readers will not be disappointed with Ava and Nate’s story. I absolutely loved the interaction between the two—the heat, the sassiness, the angst—it’s all pure perfection! When I first heard that Piper Lawson was going to be writing a story about Ava’s life I did a little happy dance because I loved her in the first novel Schooled. And now after finishing the story I am even more happy because I finally got a glimpse into her sassy and f

Well, that was... nice.
Nice characters, nice plot, nice love story, nice writing.

I was expecting a little more, though. A love story a bit heavier on the taboo aspect of falling in love with your opponent's lawyer, more tension and unfulfilled longing, instead of elitist family drama and detailed descriptions of clothes and designing.

Yet, while this book certainly wasn't the perfect fit for me and it didn't exactly blow my mind, I enjoyed it well enough. I liked Nate and Ava, individually and as

In the first book, SCHOOLED, we read about the story of Lex and her friend Ava who decided to open a clothing franchise called "Travesty". Now in STRIPPED, the story follows right where the first book left off but now focusing on Ava Cameron’s story.

In STRIPPED, we see how the girls are living now they moved to New York to follow their dream. In the first book is this one scene the girls travels from Cali to NY and Ava ends up going out with a guy. N

Lex and Ava are the two BFF that created Travesty, a clothing line. In Schooled, we got to know Lex, the financial mind of the duo that unexpectedly fell in love with Ava's little brother, Dylan. In Stripped we get to know better Ava, the designer, a creative, funny and loud young woman, who deep down wants what every other girl wants: a "steals-your-breath, strips-you-bare, indie-makeout love".

The first 50% was a cute and enjoyable read that kept me turning each page happily. It didn't get worse or better after the 50% mark, it just plateaued the rest of the way through. I wasn't bored or skimming, but I also wasn't desperate to see what would happen next either.

On the up-side; the sex scenes were pretty hot! Don't expect any kinky, dark play or dom/sub bedroom talk. It was just good Ol vanilla sex that was that is written totally hawwwt. Kudos to the author for that.

Hot, hot , hot, hot 4 freaking Townsend stars!!!!! A solid New Adult book with enough steam to make any reader go ballistic. We’re not talking about hot dirty sex but hot vanilla, still it managed to leave me wanting more of the series. The ending isn’t what you call a HEA but a good solid HFN.

Original Review @ Naomi’s Reading Palace

Piper Lawson has followed up her first book Schooled, with Stripped, another light, entertaining read that I devoured in a day. This book takes place in New York, after the girls relocate to follow their dreams of succeeding in the fashion industry. What Ava didn’t realise was that a copyright issue would bring her face-to-face with her one night stand, from their trip to New York six months earlier.

Ava is a quirky kind of girl; says exactly what she's thi

4.5 I can't breathe without wanting you stars. Ava and Nate have one steamy night of enjoying each other before they come face to face months later on opposite sides of a lawsuit. Ava can't believe it's him. He can't believe his client is the one suing her. It's true what they say about Fate having a screwed up sense of humor.

Although this is the second in a series, I found this to be a really solid stand alone novel and I don’t feel like I missed anything by not reading the first in the series before picking this novel up. Overall, I really enjoyed this story. I loved the hero and heroine as well as the secondary characters of the novel. I loved Ava’s spirit and her voice was fantastic! Nate was very serious and more difficult to connect to until he finally opens up and you can’t help but like him. The way they came ...more

I really loved this book. I love the characters. Nate is definitely boyfriend material. He is sweet, caring and totally in love with Ava. He is also handsome, and sexy as hell. I just love him, and he is so arrogant. Ava is Alexis's best friend and Dylan's sister. She is a talented designer.

This is a enemies-to-lovers story. Nate and Ava meet at a club, one December night, and they hook up. Then Travesty got sued on copyright,
3.5 stars.
The second in this series, and we are now in NYC and no longer in College.
Ava is trying to make a go of her clothing label with her best friend Lex, but bumps heads with the lawyer, Nate, who has been charged with running a lawsuit against them: they are being sued for stealing another designer's ideas.
It's great how these women are determined to be successful and work so hard to achieve their dreams. They don't need men to validate them or their efforts, but are still prepared to work

Stripped was an intensely hot contemporary romance that never got dull. It started with a notable bang and ended with a sweet sizzle. I loved it! The main characters, Ava and Nate, were certainly entertaining. Their chemistry was off the charts.

Loved this one. So cute and sexy. I loved Nate. He was such a great guy. He and Ava were perfect for each other. A definite opposites attract kind of story. Those are the best in my opinion. I loved their arguments, banter and love scenes. I'll definitely read more from this author.

So I definitely enjoyed this one more than Schooled. And I am pretty sure it’s because Ava and Nate felt more real and likable and developed. The plot didn’t bother me nearly as much - in fact I enjoyed the fact that their separations were from different priorities and when they finally came back together, it was because they needed to put each other first and support one another. Just a really entertaining and well-written read that made me happy.

Piper Lawson has done it yet again! I've been reading a lot of books with dark themes lately but it's good to have a break from those kind once in while and Stripped is the kind of book that's right upto your alley during these times. It's lighthearted and has lots of fun filled moments with sassy characters along with a healthy dose of sexiness.

Piper Lawson has done it again with this AMAZING new novel. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, her writing is refreshing. The flow of the book was great. I found myself not wanting to put the book down, and finished it in one night. I did realized that in book 1 of this series, I was hoping for a little more of the future and I thought that I would see more of them in this next installment but it really didn’t focus on

Stripped is the second book in the Travesty series by Piper Lawson. Each book is a standalone story, though the characters are interconnected. In Schooled we got to meet Dylan and Lex, Ava's brother and her best friend. I was really interested to get Ava's story though, so I was really glad that she got her own book in Stripped.

After graduation, Ava and her best friend Lex head to New York to start their business together. Ava has always wan

Stripped is book 2 in the Travesty series. I had the opportunity to read schooled when it was released, so when the author offered this one it was a no brainer for me. I really enjoyed Lex and Ava's story in book one and it continues in Stripped, now as seen through Nate and Ava's eyes.

Holy batflaps, Batman! This novel. This novel took me a day to read. A. Day. Now, I usually read a full-length novel in about a day. That is no shock, BUT it has been a while since I honestly sat down with a book, and really just stopped everything going on in my life to do nothing but read. I really want back to the world with Ava, and Nate. They are currently in the top 5 for my list of 2015 book couples.
