Book Review: Strip Me Bare by Marissa Carmel

“I may have had more lovers than you, and I may take my clothes off for countless women, but you are the only one who can strip me bare.”

Do you ever stop loving someone just because they’re gone?

Five years ago Ryan Pierce disappeared from Alana Remington’s life without leaving so much as a post-it note behind. He was the one she gave her heart to, her soul to and her virginity to. So imagine her surprise when she finds him dancing at one of NYC’s hottest male reviews as Jack the Stripper.

Ryan never stopped loving Alana, and now that she serendipitously dropped back into his life, he’s vowed never to lose her again. But being together has its costs, and challenges Alana isn’t sure she can handle. She finally has Ryan back; but how in the world is she supposed to share the love of her life with half of the women in New York City?

Jenny's Review:
The title of the book  and the synopsis is what drew me to purchase this book and it didn't disappoint. I really liked Alana and Ryan's story. Five years ago Ryan disappeared from Alana life with no explanation. Then the reconnect in the most unexpected way, at a Male Revue where he is a dancer.

The story is about two people from different social background, Alana is the rich girl, law student from a privileged family. And Ryan is from the wrong side of the track who Alana knows her father, who is a judge will disapprove of their relationship. And the connection that Ryan have with Alana's father was a shock and makes the reader understand what they are up against.  The story show how you can forgive someone who have hurt you, rebuilding trust and dealing with family who play is huge part in your life.

It was nice to see how the navigate through their relationship, especially with Ryan's job as a stripper and what lead him to leave Alana 5 years ago. They have a strong bond and is willing to work whatever problem they have. I really enjoyed the writing style of Marissa. I was easy to feel the pain of what Ryan and Alana goes through to be with each other. If you enjoyed book like Mine, you will like this book. It is a must read!
