Marissa Carmel-Strip Me Bare (Strip Me #1)

Adult Contemporary Romance

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?

{4 stars}

I saw the pic and the synopsis on a facebook page and just had to have Ryan. 

"Ryan told me he loved me once. 
He told me he'd protect me. 
He told me he'd never let go even if the stars were falling out of the sky. 
But he lied."

That line was enough to hook me into the story. Alana seems like the little rich girl lost. Spent a summer at the beach and met the bad boy. But then he disappears, breaking her heart and leaving her always wondering what happened. Skip ahead 5 years and surprise! Ryan is back, but life isn't that simple, right? At times this story seemed too simple and sweet, "I love you, I love you too" kinda stuff, but I never got bored. You get sucked in and start rooting for them, or at least Ryan. His life has sucked and now he gets his second chance at happiness and you really, really want that for him. But so many things can get in the way. The story moves ahead quickly, sometimes jumping months and even years ahead. But I think that's what kept it from becoming to simple and boring. All in all, I really enjoyed it.
