MY REVIEW -
She’s a stripper…
He’s a doctor…
I work in a big hospital, and when a news like this comes into our midst – everyone is going to have a field day. I don’t want to sound judgmental – but come on – among all the girls in and outside the hospital, why the world would he choose someone who works in a strip club??
The same question popped into my mind when I started reading this novel. Abby Gillis must be someone really special for Chris Reneau to spend time with. She’s been working in a strip club for four years now, it has been easy money. Dance, strip and you have what you need. But Abby has more responsibilities than a 24-year old should have. She’s taking care of her young siblings and sick mother, she’s paying the bills and buying food for the house. The only thing she does in the club is dance, it never troubled her before, until she met the Greek god himself, Dr. Chris Reneau.
I love ER doctors!!! I find them really smart because they work under great pressure and time constraint to save lives. Here’s Chris who is hot, sexy, smart, kind and one of a kind. He likes her, for her, and not just the fact that she has an awesome body and can dance like nobody else. He’s not interested in any relationships, right now.
But as they spend more and more time as friends, they get to know more about each other, no matter how hard they stopped it, the attraction grows and love develops. Can a relationship work with someone who is afraid of commitment and someone who is afraid to trust? Can Chris get past the issue of Abby’s work? Can Abby give up her job and learn to accept help from people who are ready to give it?
Both had past and present issues to deal with – and they are more serious than I would have realized. Heavy stuffs but I’m glad they found each other. It took a lot of effort, time, and hard work before they finally get into their senses, and when they did – it was worth it.
Stripped is not exactly what I imagined it to be – I would have pegged it for a bolder and sexier novel (don’t get me wrong, it’s still hot and sexy), it has depth, emotions, and lessons. Some people may easily judge others because of their work, what they don’t know is that everyone has reasons behind their actions.
