Stripped #1
Author: Brooklyn Skye
Publication Date: 05/14/2013
Audience: New Adult
Genre: Romance, Contemporary
“I like you.” His voice is low and soft, which I don’t deserve. I look away, down the rutted parking lot.
“Don’t... waste those words on me.”
He touches my cheek. “You just need someone to show you.”
“No.” I ease back again. “I don’t. So please, Torrin, stop trying to swoop in and save me. I don’t need saving.”

College freshman, Quinn Montgomery, will do anything to avoid the mistake her sister made — killing herself over a boy. But when she is forced into nude modeling at a local college to support her family after a bankruptcy, she begins to crack, just enough to let Torrin, the university’s top varsity oarsman, see that the real Quinn is not as feisty and unapproachable as she wants everyone to think. But letting someone in comes at a steep cost and, it turns out, Torrin is connected to Quinn’s family in more ways than she could ever imagine.
Picture and Summary from Goodreads
Stripped is your run of the mill contemporary romance. While it is somewhat predictable it was still an enjoyable, quick read.

The romance was what I would expect, while it wasn't epic by any means, it was sweet and hard won. I really liked Quinn and I really liked Torrin. I enjoyed riding along with them as they figured each other out and healed from their pasts. Their relationship seems very realistic even if it happened fast, though I'm not okay with their admittance of love just a week into it.

As far as the story goes, I enjoyed the idea. It was hard to witness the breakdown of a person/family following a suicide not to mention the scandal that has rocked Quinn's family. There are a few twists and turns that, while predictable, added excitement to the story.

If you're looking for a nice, no strings attached, fast read I suggest you pick up Stripped.
