“It’s sweet and sexy perfection.”
~ Under the Covers

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 banter is witty, light, fun, sexy and straight to the point.  One of my favorite things about these two is that they’re pretty straight forward about their feelings and expectations from the get-go.

But as much as STRIPPED DOWN is full of sexy goodness, because let’s face it this is a Lorelei James book and she does that VERY well, it is also deeply emotional.  Both Wyn and Mel are dealing with things that go deeper than their next hook up.  And they are both left to face those realities.  Sometimes with the help of one another, and sometimes apart.

You will fall in love with these two!  If ever there were two characters that fit each other perfectly, it’s Melissa and Wynton.  This is a must read for fans of Ms. James, and even though not quite as hot as a Blacktop Cowboy I would expect, this book delivered on everything I was looking for.  It made me laugh, made me smile, made me swoon, made me sigh.  And I can’t wait for more!!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
