Stripped Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

“I like you.” His voice is low and soft, which I don’t deserve. I look away, down the rutted parking lot.
“Don’t…waste those words on me.”
He touches my cheek. “You just need someone to show you.”
“No.” I ease back again. “I don’t. So please, Torrin, stop trying to swoop in and save me. I don’t need saving.”


College freshman Quinn Montgomery will do anything to avoid the mistake her sister made—killing herself over a boy. But when she is forced into nude modeling at a local college to support her family after a bankruptcy, she begins to crack, just enough to let Torrin, the university’s top varsity oarsman, see that the real Quinn is not as feisty and unapproachable as she wants everyone to think. But letting someone in comes at a steep cost and, it turns out, Torrin is connected to Quinn’s family in more ways than she could ever imagine.

First line:
His lips don’t look like mine feel. Like they’re dying. Dead.

This book is heartbreaking. Quinn's sister killed herself a year ago. All because of a boy. And because of that, she shuts herself off from any emotion. She's built walls around herself that nobody can get through. 

I can't even put my feelings about this book into words, I loved it so much.

Kelly Clarkson's song Because of You reminds of the is book. This song captures the haunting tale of Quinn as the story begins. She won't let anyone love her and she errs on the side of caution.
 



If you love stories of finding true love in unexpected places, you should definitely read Stripped.
