ANA Review: 3 hearts

Abby Gillis is used to being called a promiscuous, uneducated whore. It’s all in a day’s work when you’re a stripper. Since her job allows her to support her siblings, 24-year-old Abby takes it all off in stride. She’s never had trouble keeping men at arm’s length – until she meets ER physician Chris Reneau, who is sexy, sweet and interested in more than what’s beneath her clothes. As their relationship unfolds, Abby becomes increasingly aware of the desire building in her for the first time, and of her yearning to be wanted by the one man who truly sees all of her.

Commitment-averse Chris finds himself in uncharted territory. He wants Abby, that’s clear, but he can’t accept not having all of her. As the distance between them erodes, he tries to convince Abby to give up stripping for a chance at something real.

As the two of them get closer, Abby realizes that truly baring it all has nothing to do with her body. Chris makes her feel more exposed than she ever has, and she has to grapple with what’s left when her notions about herself and those around her are stripped away, leaving only the naked truth.

A doctor and a stripper – that isn’t a combo you see quite often, so I knew I had to check this story out. 
STRIPPED was well developed, and I thought that the author presented the issues in a realistic way.
I love the characters. Abby is strong, in spite of her insecurities, and I was rooting for her from the beginning. As for Chris… Well he’s the total package – hot, caring, and a doctor to boot!
I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.
