Reading an Emma Hart book is like stepping into a land brimming with delicious, happy, and enticing FEELS. Her novels are decadent, steamy and always fun. They leave me with tummy flutters, goofy smiles and an overall sense of pure bliss. Her heroines are fierce and sassy, and her hero's are alpha male perfection.


She's an author who knows how to romance her readers. She does it time and time again. I love her stories, I can't g

I should make a fancy editorial review for this. You know, the ones that authors use to promote their books and such. I should but I don't think what I have to say is appropriate for promotions. So I'll leave it here.

I fucking loved every second of this book. In true Hart fashion she had me head over heels, ass over elbows, deeply in love with every single word. My eyes couldn't read fast enough and when it was over I just sat here looking at the last page unable to leave this world she's broug
3.5 Stars

Overall Opinion: This was a sexy, easy, low drama read. I'm not quite sure why, but I am always drawn to stripper/escort type stories. This didn't disappoint. It was a hot read, but it wasn't all about the sex and had a story to go along with it. Did it get deep and meaningful? No, but it served its purpose for me. It had very little drama and angst, and the little bit that there was was caused by the h being a little bit of a commitment-phobe. It also had some great side characters, a

I can't believe I almost didn't read this story. I'm not even sure why, but I hadn't put it on my tbr and only realized that when it came across my update feed again. Either way, I'm really happy I finally started this book because I loved West with a burning passion.

Mia and West had a very sexy story and I really liked seeing the chemistry that was between them. They had the kind of connection that you just couldn't miss, from the first meeting between them it was evident that they had somethi
3.75 Stars

“I might call you angel, but I have a feeling you’re going to be my own personal sin, Mia O’Halloran.”

I need to start off by saying I was going through a major slump while reading this book. And it still got a 3.75. That's not bad when you consider what could've gone down.

Luckily, the chemistry between these two was OFF THE CHARTS and I had no choice but to get sucked into the dirty talking, sexy times.

Seriously. Can you beat a man who chooses to strip for fun!

Good stuff all the

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas….or does it really? Leave it to Emma Hart for making me want to take a trip out to Vegas now after reading her latest new release, Stripped Bare. And let me just say that this book was rock solid sexy and panty-melting hot.

I loved this book! Start to finish, there was not a single thing I didn't enjoy! I know I often gripe about "insta-anything" but Emma Hart just delivered a romance with humor and heat that developed in a matter of 2 weeks and it was fabulous!

The book Fairies have been so good to me as this is the 2nd book in a row that gave me a strong, sexy man with beautiful heart. West is a stripper! What? Player...right? Oh man...hard worker...determined...and so endearing. Whether commanding t

This one had its good moments, but I'm just too jaded at this point. I've been in a long book slump, and think I just need to change it up and read a different genre. I thought the characters had good chemistry, but my pet peeves got the best of me. I just can't read about hot wet tight pussies anymore. "You.Are. Mine"? ugh, I can't even. The humor and dialogue between the friends seemed kind of forced and wasn't all that funny, imo. I blame myself, because I should have known what to ex

I really think I should create a bookshelf called "Don't Bother With Panties" because this book belongs there. Or maybe "Don't Read Without Significant Other Nearby." Or "Definitely Don't Read In Front Of People Because The Noises You'll Make is Embarrassing."
Because REALLY.

As an author myself, I should be able to accurately describe the level of heat Hart brings with Stripped Bare. I got nothing.
Scorching? Sweltering? Combustible?
The hottest thing I've read this year BY FAR, Stripped

This was the first book I've read from Emma Hart and it was quite good. What I really liked about it was that it read like a RomCom movie, with some extremely hot scenes thrown in.

I developed a love/hate relationship with the FMC, Mia. She had an aversion to commitment after enduring many dating disasters. Her push and pull went beyond simple stubbornness. It was actually a bit OTT at times and left me a little frustrated with her. However, I really enjoyed her inner monologues, especially in re

I enjoyed this, for the most part, the end dragged a little when Mia was carrying on and on with excuses. The writing was easy to read and the sex was pretty hot.

I'm still not sure I can ever think of male strippers working a pole as sexy though.

Loved this book! Super funny and super hot - a perfect combination. This is the first book I have read by this author and I can't wait to read more!

This is my first Emma Hart book and let me tell you, it’s pretty freaking perfect. First, it’s funny and I love funny, like legit I will take a book that makes me laugh over one that makes me cry any day. Second, it’s hot as sin, like 5 seconds in hot and it didn’t let up. Last, it made me so giddy reading about their moments together. I can’t wait to read more Emma Hart books now!

Judging by the cover, I should have expected what was coming. There was plenty of hot dirty talk and steamy sex, but unfortunately, that was pretty much all there was. I found myself wishing for more story development or a reason the couple ended up together other than wanting more sexy times. The girlfriends also sounded a bit young for their age and a few editing mistakes interrupted the reading flow. Besides that, I had a great time visualizing the male strippers and am now longing for a Vega ...more

4 "We are beautiful chaos" stars

I read 75 percent of the book and that was just torture. It is just terrible, the sexism and rapey-but-im-making-it-sexy just didn't work for me. For me consent and agreeable chemistry is necessary in a romance book (or any book) but it's the basis of a story. This is absolute trash like I'm burning my eyeballs reading this.. I just could not hop on this double standard but I'm-in-love-with-you-so-its-all-good train. I'm done.


Spoilers ahead.......
Mia hooks up with a stripper at her bff's bachelorette party, weeks later she goes to Vegas to do marketing for a strip club and finds West to actually be half owner of the business. The chemistry between them is fiery and though Mia tries to resist once again sleeping with West but she fails spectacularly. West had a bad experience in the past but he definitely pursues Mia and knows how to get her to see things his way.

At the beginning I loved this, Mia was confid

Holy shit that has to be one of the hottest books I have read in a while. I literally couldn’t put it down once I picked it up.

West was the perfect wet dream of a man. Seriously. Damn!!! Sexy stripper. Successful businessman. Dirty Talking extraordinaire. With the right mix of take charge bossy alpha and sweet and sensitive caring guy. I think I came just thinking about him.

Oh Ms. Hart, you've done it again. Made me fall in love with one of your stories. This one has definitely risen to one of my favorites from Emma Hart. It's wicked hot with a heaping dose of love and conflict. The heat level was quite possibly the highest I'd ever read from this author, much to my extreme satisfaction.

I think what kept this story so interesting was the fact that the wishy washy way the female character dealt with love was very true to a committment phobic type female. It's as if

First off... the male stripper trope is not really my thing. I find it to be a huge turn off and oftentimes cringeworthy. With that being said, I really enjoyed this one. Although I was skimming the dance scenes, I was happy they were few and far between, so I could focus on the storyline instead.

The chemistry was palpable and the progression of the relationship felt believable despite the insta-love/lust feel.

Both MCs were quite likeable, although the h really annoyed me near the en

Note to self: The hero is a male stripper.
OH MY HELL! This was one HOT as HELL read! STRIPPED BARE is my first Emma Hart book and MY GOD she started me off with a BANG! And if you couldn't tell by my opening line...this WILL NOT be my last read by Ms. Hart. She writes just the type of romance that I crave in a daily basis. HOT and HEAVY dialogue...amazing characters with scorching chemistry...erotic and filthy sex scenes...and witty banter throughout. Where in the hell has Ms. Hart been all my life?

The characters talk like teenagers. Not steamy AT ALL. The banter between Mia and her mother is ridiculous. I gave up at 22% when he carries her to her door "like a gentleman." Gag! No, thank you.
Hot. Sexy. Enticing. Inviting. Explosive. Emma Hart comes back with a bang in a genre she is fluent in and leaves you wanting even after the last page is turned.

Its been a while since Hart released an Erotic Romance and Oh. My. God!! Stripped Bare is one hot as hell read with is equally hot to look at. I mean, LOOK. AT. THAT. COVER! *drools*

Emma Hart is definitely one of my fav authors and I've adored the books I've read so far in her Burke Brothers series. There was a sample of this book included in the back of one of those books and it hooked me instantly, so when the opportunity arose to review an advance copy of this book I didn't need any convincing.

This little beauty suckered me in from the get-go and held my attention the entire way through. There is not a single thing I could fault or complain about. This book rocks. Snarky
