What I’m Talking About:
Wynton “Wyn” Grant is best man for his younger brother, Sutton, who met the love of his life, London, a mere six months ago (Sutton and London’s story was the focus of the first novella, Roped In). Melissa “Mel” Lockhart is the best friend and maid of honor for the bride. While London has made attempts to set up Wyn and Mel, it wasn’t until the wedding until the pair meet, and instant fireworks erupted. Two peas-in-a-pod, each enjoys sex and being with one another. When Wynton’s dad has a heart attack at the wedding reception, Melissa steps up to stay with Wynton to provide both emotional support, as well as physical help with the range, regardless of her own physical wellbeing.
Stripped Down is a fast-paced story with a romance that moves rapidly; bumps in the road resolving quickly. The couple even joke about how fast they fall in love. It’s apparent that they are made for one another, although secrets nearly break the pair apart. Luckily calm heads and strong hearts win out in the end. The romance is sexy and explosive. The pair is extremely blunt with their desires and vast sexual histories, making them a good match.
My Rating: B, Liked It
About the Book:
Never challenge a cowboy to a little naughty competition…
A flirty game of sexual truth or dare between best man, Wynton Grant, and maid of honor, Melissa Lockhart during their BFF’s wedding reception results in a steamy hookup.
But their plans for a one and done change when a family crisis leaves Wyn shorthanded at the Grant Ranch. Experienced horsewoman Mel volunteers to help out and gets way more than she bargained for living under the same roof as the sexy rancher. Playing house has never appealed to Wyn…until now.
But the feisty redhead is keeping secrets and Wyn’s not above stripping her bare—body and soul—to get to the bottom of it…
