“He was her everything. Body, heart and soul. Forever and always.” Wowza, was this a hot read! Stripped Bounty by Dorothy F. Shaw is what you need to read if you like steamy, sexy reads. My review continues below.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Protecting her isn’t an option. It’s a requirement.
Badger finally got Rosie in his bed, but in order to keep her there, he has to figure out how to save her life.
After her drug-running husband gets himself killed, Rosie Santini figures Phoenix is a fine place to get a fresh start. Deuce’s strip club isn’t too fresh, but the money’s easy. As she works the pole, the only gaze she can’t ignore belongs to the club’s head bouncer, Badger Baxter. But Rosie’s seen her fair share of tall, dark, and dangerous, and no way is she heading down that road. Not even for a hot hunk of muscle like Badger.
When he’s not bounty hunting, Badger runs security at Deuce’s. Rosie should be just another piece of fresh meat in the club’s stable of pole jockeys, but all her sexy parts add up to a ride Badger would like to test drive. Trouble is, Badger likes his women submissive, but not broken. She’s definitely got baggage he wants no part of. But when her husband’s killer shows up looking for stolen cash, she fits naturally under his protection—and it isn’t long before she’s hooked deep into his heart.
So deep, losing her now would make him bleed in more ways than one.
Warning: This book contains violent situations due to physical altercations and gunfire. Be on the look out for D/s sexual play, which may cause drooling and might have you reaching for the nearest man or battery operated boyfriend.
If I wore reading glasses they would have fogged up reading this.
In any event, my Kindle almost caught fire from the smoldering, sexy, naughty story that this was.
I could not enjoy this enough, even though some scenes were blush worthy. I mean, a hot motorcycle dude and his surprise penchant of BDSM had my mouth gaping open. WOW! I had to pause and fan myself on many occasions. Okay, you might be saying, “But duh! it says in the synopsis that he likes his women submissive!” Yes, well read the story and you will see.
Can a stripper be a heroine?
Of course! I loved that the heroine was less than perfect. Rosie is a take no nonsense chick that needs to strip to make money. When she meets Badger at the strip club where he works the sexual tension that emanates from those two is so thick that you could probably cut through it with a butter knife.
The storyline focuses on their at times hostile, relationship. They argue A LOT! I guess it adds to the spice because I wouldn’t peg these two as a sweet couple. It’s a more aggressive type of love, not a lot of tenderness.
There is loads of danger and suspense as well and that aspect makes the story more than just kinky sex. There is the typical character growth and of course realizations come when both of them are in danger.
Dorothy F. Shaw is a new-to-me author who totally knows how to grab the readers’ attention. Will look forward to reading more of her books down the road.
