Whoah!! I was not expecting that book at all... I went into this pretty blind, not even reading the blurb, yet having been a follower of M.Never's writing for some time I was pretty sure it would be an enjoyable read. Well I think it has just become my favourite book of hers!

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

3.5 “We meet again” stars!!

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 morning he

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.

I've read a number of books by this author and I've loved them. They are griping, compelling and gritty.

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

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

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

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.

Ever since reading Moto, I never pass up a chance to read another one of M. Never's books. She knows how to keep her readers thoroughly entertained, hot, and bothered. So I was more than ready to jump into Strip Me Bare with pockets full of money and meet the infamous Jack the Stripper and make it rain all over his gorgeous body!

Strip Me Bare by M. Never is a standalone second chance romance that was fun to read, sexy and with very likeable characters. There is a little bit of angst, but flows great with the overall story. Second chance romances seemed to be all the rage currently and I cannot get enough of them, including this one!

Alana and Ryan met when they were young and had a strong and passionate love that was cut short. Without word, Ryan left Alana’s life after giving him everything. Left devastated, she built

They met and fell in love five years previously and then Ryan completely disappeared from her life with no explanation leaving Alana devastated and deciding she would never get emotionally involved again.

Omg! Where do I begin with this review. I am still a muddled mess of emotions and it's been hours since I finished reading this amazing second chance love story. When I first started this book I thought it would be the typical stripper book, like a Magic Mike-esk story but what I got was so much more and believe me when I say you won't be disappointed when you start this great book.

The characters are both broken in there own way and when they find each other again the story just takes off. The

Second chances do exist. Alana sees Ryan after five years. They still have feelings for each other and Ryan has his reasons for being absent all that time. She is the only one he's ever loved. She's guarded and is afraid he'll leave again. I enjoyed this story and how their families influenced their behaviors. How their love for one another helped them fight for that love and overcame the obstacles they faced.

Sean rubbed me the wrong way from the get-go he is the type of dude that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end and not in a good way.

Beautiful & emotionally filled romance by the talented M. Never. Strip Me Bare will take you on a second chance journey of love that is not easily overcome. Love that is hard to achieve and quite treacherous especially when family members who lead high powered jobs get in the way and cause angst and chaos. But love usually wins the battlefield. Will it win this one?

Alana was devastated after her then boyfriend Ryan broke her heart and disappeared. Five years later Alana's life looks like it's back on track but the after effects of Ryan's sudden disappearance are still very apparent. On her cousins bachelorette night, Alana's out of her comfort zone when she's dragged to a male strip club. The very last person she's expecting to see is the boy who broke her.

I really liked Alana. She's plagued with insecurities and has issues with letting her emo

Strip Me Bare is a swoon worthy second chance romance. So here's my advice, put away any judgement you may or may not have. If you are one of those that might think Strippers aren't your thing, please, think again. I feel like everyone should get to know Ryan. 

Alana had her heart broken at a young age five years ago, which has caused her to be closed off and guarded. On a night out for her best friend's bachelorette party, her past comes barreling back into her life. The one guy who

Let's discuss Ryan Pierce for a hawt 🔥🔥 moment. Could you even imagine living with a male stripper?? The body, the moves, the sultryness of it alllll 👏🏻👏🏻 Those are definitely the BONUSES. But that's all just surface layers. For reals, Ryan is super sexy with the way he never gives up

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

Sigh... I'm beginning to realize that M. Never is just my kind of writer - with her works I know that I'm going to get a great balance of heat, angst, and emotion (and apparently, she has a thing with twins). In Strip Me Bare, she deals with the longevity and strength of first love, the agony of drug addiction, the scars of emotional ambivalence, and the grief of the loss of a parent - all with a little Magic Mike action thrown in there.
