Stripped Down by Emma Hart

Stripped Down by Emma Hart

Rock Solid and the Landing Strip are his life and of course the women that work in his strip club. Beckett Cruz takes after his girls and makes sure they are not having problems. His life is all about partying and the many women he can bed until one drunken night. Hard to believe he is married. Not just married but in his mind screwed because somehow Cassie has done what no other women has done making him fall. Not just a simple fall according to his best friend and other partner West but freefalling quickly. It is not just Cassie though but her little girl Cici has enchanted him in a way he never imagined being pulled into. It was supposed to be just one night but being with Cassie is making him see how lonely his life has become. He knows it is payback for making fun of West with hs relationship with Mia but dang karma is a bitch in some ways. An easy divorce should have fixed everything but now that he has the papers well he wants more of Cassie and her little girl. Can he prove to Cassie she is not alone anymore and he can be there for her?

Sure it might be the Disney movie that makes him a ringer for Flynn the handsome character that her little girl loves but it is becoming so much more for me. I still cannot believe how things have changed after that one tequila drink. I could blame it on the drink but Beck is one sexy beast and I know him hanging out with us and my little girl will be a disaster. I have never let a man in my life and somehow one stupid night end up married. He is known to be a man with many women never committing to one and now he is stuck with me. Divorce is the only thing that will work but no matter how much it will be so easy this feeling that is happening towards him is like a huge road block. It has always been just me and Cici and now I cannot imagine a life without Beckett. How can a stripper and single mom ever dream of having a normal life when everytime I’m dancing I feel disgusting? Can I give the life my daughter needs and still be the woman Beck needs in his life?

Good Lord where does Emma Hart come up with these hot guys. I thought West did it for me but man Beck is like a thunderstorm blowing my mind out of here. I loved that he is not the usual stripper but actually has a heart of gold like West. To others he is just a dancer all about having a different woman every nght but when the right one comes along he is a goner all the way. Cassie is the right one for him and Cici just the most adorable little six year old ever. This is more than just a dancer getting hitched it is about two people learning to rely on each other. I feel for Cassie for she was young when she had Cici and it takes a strong man like Beck to make her see we are not alone. Emma Hart did this story so beautiful just like Mia and West story but created a family with all four characters. I really hope there is more of Emma Hart and her dancers for there is one person I am interested to see what will happen and that is Vicki the bartender wondering what her story is in Rock Solid. Loved it.

Stripped Bare by Emma Hart

It was supposed to be a bachelorette party for my best friend, Ali and nothing else. Once I saw him dancing and then the private lap dance I knew this guy was going to change my life. It was just one night of tangled sheets, his body on top of me, insde me and behind me nothing more. That changes though when I am back in Las Vegas and well I screwed up, he is my client, the owner of Rock Solid a strip club looking to be bigger in Vegas. West Rykman is more than a stripper and being with him is making me see how tempting and seductive he can be. No matter how much I try to step away from this thing with him my heart and body wants him. My life is in San Diego not in Las Vegas with a man who knows how to use his charm, tools and oh so seductively play my body so well. I never needed a man to make me complete for  I am terrible at commitments but the thought of not being with West is too heartbreaking. Can I leave this sexy man and the possibility of finding love for the first time?

She is sexy, beautiful and not like the other girls I have been. People see me as just a stripper, a dancer with money and the sexy body I posses. Nobody see`s the real me just want the sex and well more sex out of me. It was supposed to be just a bachelorette party but after beng insde her, hearing her moan and knowing it is my kisses and touch that make her explode I wanted more. This is the first that has happened to me a woman getting under my skin so easily. The more I am with Mia though I am learning being with her is definitely not easy at all. Somehow she is determined to play this relationship as just sexual but there is more than that between us.  I have only a couple of weeks to prove to her how right we are and will do anything to make her see I am more than a stripper but the man she has been waiting for all her life.

In one word HOT by Emma Hart. Move over Magic Mike for Emma Hart knows how to entice her readers and boy did she ever with West Rykman. Just reading about him dancing and the sex between them was off the charts nothing  I expected. This is more than just a dancer for it is a woman overcoming her fears and well learning to let go. The passion between West and Mia is hotter than ever and more than just sex between them. I loved that even though West has been dancing a long tme he is more than just a sexy body and face he is also a man trying to be more than just an image. This is the first book and yes there is a sequel cannot wait for Beck the other partner in Rock Solid making these two men one hot ride to read more about from Emma Hart. Awesome.

Only one who wanted her was her Aunt Luz and now she is gone. Coming back to say goodbye to her was not the way she imagned coming home to sadness. She expected a lot to happen when she came back but seeng the boy she loved years ago was not one of them. Burke Wolfe was not the usual boyfrend but really a friend who understood her and wanted to be with her. He was everything a teenager like her craved, a friend to talk to. Now seeing him again as a man is making her libido go wild. She always wondered how he kissed and now that she is a woman she is wanting a whole lot more than just friendship this time. Problem is will she always be the sick friend in his eyes or grow to be something he never expected in his life.

She was the only one who understood him. He was the teenage boy that got in trouble but had no problem when it came to girls. She was the sick girl with an aunt who sold erotic toys but nothing about that bothered her. Sofia Mercer never figured out she was more than a friend to him years ago she was his lfeline to survival. She was the only one who when he was down made him come back to the living. All he wanted at that time was for the pain and heartache to go away yet it was Sofia he made a point to live agan. The day she left him for the transplant was the day his life ended but seeing her again as a woman is like getting a kick start to life to live again. Can he prove to Sofia that his feelings for her are real and has always been all those years ago?

Lisa Marie Perry has done it again with a story about learning to live again but also how to love again wth Sofia and Burke. Two people who struggled to be loved yet feel they were short changed. I felt for Sofia for going through what she went through alone is tough then there is Burke who was in so many ways her symbol to live. These two are so much alike yet feel they are worlds apart. This is more than just Sofia and Burke for we see how hard they struggled to have a life no one thought they would have. Meant to be Mine is definitely titled right for Lisa Marie Perry created two characters that are complete in so many ways it is hard to imagine them separated at all. They have a unique bond and love that you can tell has never disappeared but has grown stronger than ever.

Friends, friends, friends must keep saying that every time I look at Angelica “Fitz” Hawkins. For years she is the one  I can count on no matter the situation. My wing girl in so many ways she knows me which is scary. Somehow though I am seeing her in a different light. Could be the tank top she is wearing and the sexy dance she is doing but somehow I see her as a woman now. Not just any woman but one I want to sleep with and wake up to the next morning and the day after. Not sure how it happened but Fitz is becoming more than a friend for me and people are noticing. I am used to bedding any woman but Fitz is one woman that I feel like I am forever chasing. One kiss is all it takes to make me know for sure she is the one for me. Everytime I think she feels the same way she goes one step back. Can I prove to her that I am not like her father that the love I have for her is real and forever?

I am not sure how it happened but my best friend just kssed the hell out of me. The make-your-toes curl-fuck-where-am-I type of kiss. I wasn`t prepared for it but secretly have dreamed of happening since high school. I am Angelica “Fitz” Hawkins also known as the half sister of baseball player Nate Hawkins. Ever since my parents died in a tornado my life has never been the same yet no matter what terrible things or lies I had to endure in school Deke was always there. He was the one man who I could count on and never for a minute thought things would change between us but man that kiss. One kiss is all it takes for me to want more from my friend and though it is wrong I want him like a drug. I have to stay away though for no matter how messed up it is it won`t go nowhere. I am the girl nobody wants and he is a womanizer. Will love ever happen for real or is still aways just a fairytale?

This is my favorite kind of story the ones where it starts as friendship and blooms to something else. Deke and Fitz though have an unsual friendship that borders between brother sisterly, love hate and explosive all combined. I loved that one minute they can fight so easily yet confuse the hell out of each other so quickly. The love they have is like they can complete each others words without actually saying it and yet they cannot deny the attraction any longer. This is a first I have read by Jen Doyle and definitely will not be the last. Talk about hot sexy players and the girls have no chance of staying away from the love they want to give out. Loved it.
