Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3.5 Stars
Stripped Down was a decent start to a new series by Erin McCarthy. This is a new-to-me author, so I’m not too familiar with her writing style or tone. What I read of Stripped Down was entertaining enough, but I didn’t fall in love with Sloane and Rick. I liked the little brother’s best friend aspect to their story and that she was a reformed bad girl back home after a nasty divorce, licking her wounds. But I felt like some of Rick’s behavior was a bit immature and he came off as a jerk. And reformed mean girl or not, I didn’t think that Sloane deserved that kind of treatment.
Despite that, I still very much enjoyed this story. The secondary characters were very likable, which is a good thing since I presume that they will be getting their own stories in this series.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
