    Have you seen Magic Mike? No? You should fix that, but first read Zoey Castile's Stripped, which is like a book version of Magic Mike, only with more romance and less "wah wah, it sucks so much that my boyfriend is a stripper." It begins with a meet-cute over laundry and ends with our heroine finding herself and ~true love~ while hanging out with the boys of Mayhem City, an all-male revue led by a guy named Ricky who is just begging to have Matthew McConaughey play him in a film adaptation.

    Description


    Skilled, sculpted, and sexy, the men of adult entertainment are the kind of guys a woman reserves for her fantasies, not her reality. But is there more to these professional hotties than meets the eye? . . .
     
    The day Robyn Flores meets Zac Fallon is one of those days. You know, when you’re already late for work. Mostly because you haven’t really slept since your best friend abandoned you for her fiancé and her exponentially better life. The kind of day you drag yourself to the cleaners to pick up your laundry, only to discover you’ve got the wrong bag—Star Spangled sequined thong, anyone? So Robyn is definitely not ready for the ridiculously gorgeous guy at her front door, except that they have each other’s clothes. But then, is any woman ever ready to meet the love of her life?


    There’s just one problem: Zac Fallon is not the love of Robyn’s life. Zac knows, despite the all-too-intimate dinner they share, he doesn’t have a shot at her. Because the next time Zac sees Robyn, he’s front and center of the male revue headlining her best friend’s bachelorette party. So much for wooing the pretty schoolteacher, much less impressing her old-fashioned family, with his upstanding lifestyle. Now he’s only got one way to win his dream girl. It’s gonna be the steamiest, most irresistible seduction she’s ever seen. And this time it will be no act . . .
     
     “Castile’s writing sparkles with wit. Readers will swoon for Robyn and Fallon's love story—and their super sexy dance moves!” —Alexis Daria, author of Take The Lead
     
     “In a perfect mix of sexy attraction that sizzles on the page and enchanting romance between characters you fall in love with, Castile’s novel hits all the right notes!”
    —Priscilla Oliveras, author of Her Perfect Affair

     
    “Zoey Castile is a fresh and fun new voice, and the characters in Stripped will capture your heart (and possibly your dollar bills).” —Alisha Rai, author of Hurts to Love You
