STRIPPED DOWN - Teaser - 2 BTTalk about floored.

Wyn was glad to have several hours to try to sort through everything. But by the time he pulled into his driveway just after dark, he was more than ready to put it all aside and focus on the sweet, hot and sexy redhead he hadn’t been able to get out of his mind the past thirty-six hours. The sweet, hot and sexy redhead who was in his house right now. The sweet, hot and sexy redhead who had left the porch light on for him.

Warmth spread through him. It made him a f*cking sap, but he hadn’t had anyone leave the light on for him since he lived at home. And if the woman had cooked supper? He might just propose to her.

He was so eager to see her he didn’t haul in his suitcase. He took the steps two at a time and burst through the door. From the foyer, while he took off his boots, he yelled, “Honey, I’m home.” When he rounded the corner, Melissa stood in his living room, her wild curls pulled back into a ponytail. She wore a workout top that showcased her tits, yoga pants—thank you baby Jesus for the genius who invented those mother*ckers—and her feet were bare. She looked completely at home in his home.

“Hey. How was the drive?”


“How’s your dad?”

“Better than we thought, on the road to a full recovery and makin’ big plans.” He started to stalk her. “Tell me, little redheaded riding girl, what’s that delicious smell?”

“I cooked stir-fry but the rice isn’t done yet.”

“Good. We have time.”

Melissa took a step back. “For?”

“For you to tell me why you were trespassing in my kitchen.”

“Are you the big bad wolf, Wynton?”

“Yes.” He continued slowly moving forward. “Here’s where you say, ‘Oh my, what big teeth you have.’”

Her gaze zeroed in on his mouth. “Why are you licking your lips?”

“Because you look mighty tasty.”

“But I cooked!”

“Don’t want food, Red. I want you.” Then he was looming over her. The sexy glint in her eyes widened his predatory grin. “Strip off them britches.”

Her half-hearted “No” had him wrestling her to the floor. He hovered on all fours above her. “Don’t be scared, Red. My big teeth and long wicked tongue are all the better to eat you with. Now take off those pants or I’ll tear them off.”

My Review


Oh wow. Just wow.

This little novella demonstrates perfectly how a talented author can wrap up a sweet romance, smutty hot sex and a nice plot in only a few pages.

Actually I prefer the term man-slut, Manwhore implies I take money for something I do very well. For free.

I haven’t read much of Lorelei James’ books yet, but let me tell you one thing : Stripped Down took me on a real cowboy binge and boy did I enjoy the ride! 

I loved this story SO much that I started book 1, 2 and 3 of the Blacktop Cowboys series right after.
And I truly enjoyed them all.

I want to fuck you slowly and send you soaring without all the thrusting and straining, so when you do tip over the edge into the abyss, you’ll wonder if it all had been a dream.

Knowing Lorelei James was the Queen of smut and wild rides, I already had a few of her books on the side for whenever I’d be in a cowboy mood. Today I’m glad I picked up Stripped Down, it opened a whole new horizon of reads to me! This author has more than 30 books for me to catch up on, all sexy, smutty and entertaining reads!

Back to Stripped Down, if you read this author before, my guess is this one should NOT be missed. Seriously.

It’s mine, Melissa. Give it to me.


Wynton and Melissa finally meet at their friends wedding and the chemistry is instantaneous. We’re literally taken into a wild and free ride, a smoking hot hookup taking place early in the book.

Fuck. I know where all the sugar in your body has gone to. Right here. Christ. You’re as sweet and addictive as candy.

Sparks ignite and their banter alone made the book for me. These 2 wild cards enjoy the same kind of pleasures in life, both are looking for fun without the complications and their laid-back nature makes both of them the perfect match. Not that any of them knows it yet.


I loved everything in this novella, the setting, the hilarious and sexy banter, the melt-your-panties dirty talk, the secondary characters, the minor angst brought up by a tiny secret, the swooning moments… Sigh. 

This sexy, fun and emotionally packed novella had everything and left me crave for MORE.

Prepare yourselves, you are in for a hell of a sexy ride!

Super Man-Slut and the Amazing Slut-Girl were destined to hook up and then hang up their unopened packets of condoms for good so they could become the one and only for each other, forever.
