I found H.M. Ward through Damaged and became intrigued with the Ferro boys. This story is about Jonathan, the youngest of the three brothers and his l..Show More »ife is always getting him into trouble. He has a way with the ladies and can’t seem to stay out of the press. His mother sends him away to Mississippi for the summer so things will cool down. There is where he meets Cassie Hale, a virgin. He can't believe she thinks she can hold out for Mr. Perfect to give her V-card away. Stripped is about Cassie and Jonny, it’s about their short romance, their summer fling and the heartbreak that followed. A large majority of this book is a flashback to when Jon met Cassie. Their relationship was amazing. Jon was truly changed by Cassie. She changed him more then he thought possible. The relationship between these two is filled with sexual tension! Cassie was great. I adored her character. She was shy but with smart witty comebacks when necessary. He was relentless to pursue her. Jon's story gives you a bit of two broken souls that at one time were the only thing that seemed to put each other together, and at the same time were the only thing that seemed to be able to tear them apart.... Forward to present day and Cassie is a stripper at his brother Peter’s bachelor party. Jonathan can’t figure what happened to Cassie for her to end up here. He finds himself hurt and still angry but still wants to help her out of her situation, whatever it is. Unfortunately, the book basically ends there which is frustrating. There were a lot of unresolved issues by the end of the book. So, I will patiently wait for book #2.
