Detective Sawyer Matthews isn’t just having a bad day—he’s having the worst day. His hunt for the criminal who killed his team member has stalled and now… he’s got to play nice with his new, totally unwanted partner. It’s not that she isn’t qualified, or that he doesn’t like her—it’s because he knows what she looks like naked. So very, very naked.

Brooke Simmons finally landed her dream job working for H.E.A.T, an elite undercover detective squad, and she’s not giving up simply because she had a one-night-stand with her sullen—but undeniably sexy—new partner. They’ll just have to keep it professional. Easier said than done, considering their first case requires Sawyer to infiltrate a drug cartel operating out of a male strip show. Watching him do his best Magic Mike impression every night isn’t just hot—it’s torture.

Sawyer doesn’t need any distractions, yet his attraction to Brooke is explosive and he can’t resist going for round two. Or three. Or four. But as their investigation progresses and danger mounts, they’ll have to put their jobs, hearts, and lives on the line to fight… for each other, for survival, and for justice.

Stripped is the start of a the new series Blue HEAT by Tara Wyatt. I will admit that what drew me to the book first was the cover. I could I have passed this up. Sexy right? I really should use this cover one day for my Sexy Sunday post. 

Sure I've read and enjoyed past books from Tara Wyatt by only a few. So if it wasn't for the cover I might not have read this one right away. Silly, I know! But that's how it is, I'm alive and he's hot that's all that it took. 

Then add the title and OMG! 

What I really enjoyed was that these two characters, Brooke and Sawyer. The punch of lust when they met and then what seems like forever which we know it wasn't, them falling in love. 

The author starts off this book with a kick in the face. Right away you feel for these characters and what to know more about this police department. I even enjoyed how both Brooke and Sawyer meet. Of course the road to love wasn't easy for either the characters and at times us as the readers. I think the author had them working a little to hard at not showing or maybe realizing their own feelings at times. 

I was glad that the story wasn't only about the suspense, there was equal romance in it. The pace of the story is good with the writing at times getting a little silly, but overall a very good story that will leave you wanting more. Schooled #2 is out August 15th and Scorched November 13th! 

If you've read Stripped or any other book by Tara Wyatt I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
