😍 I had so much fun reading STRIPPED by Zoey Castile. 😍Let’s start with our characters Robyn Flores, teacher who’s still trying to figure it all out and Zac Fallon who’s a male stripper. They live in the same building and of course first encounters are hilarious. This is my first Zoey Castile book and it was everything I wanted. The story followed both Robyn and Zac through their lives independently as well as when they were together. I felt in a way like they could be people I know. I really like that, when books bring a story so genuine and lighthearted that as a reader you can’t help yourself but keep reading. The romance was on fire in a sweet and discreet way. There were very blush-able parts too, *swoons* (I’m grinning as I write this remember this is spoiler free review) and banter that is definitely top notch! There were some things that didn’t need an explanation because you, well, me, I felt I got it from where each character was coming from. One hundred percent rom-com feels, the originality of the story explored the male entertainment industry from Fallon’s perspective and how a couple can make it work aside from what each is going through, how two people find each other among the chaos of our lives and societal expectations, this is the part I really liked and took from the story and Zoey’s writing.
I had a lot of fun reading it definitely what I needed to read. Also I loved walking around public places with it and having a couple of people at the coffee place ask me about it. Oh yea. Don’t be shy to show off what you read. 😉

About this book:
The day Robyn Flores meets Zac Fallon is one of those days. You know, when you’re already late for work. Mostly because you haven’t really slept since your best friend abandoned you for her fiancé and her exponentially better life. The kind of day you drag yourself to the cleaners to pick up your laundry, only to discover you’ve got the wrong bag—Star Spangled sequined thong, anyone? So Robyn is definitely not ready for the ridiculously gorgeous guy at her front door, except that they have each other’s clothes. But then, is any woman ever ready to meet the love of her life?
There’s just one problem: Zac Fallon is not the love of Robyn’s life. Zac knows, despite the
all-too-intimate dinner they share, he doesn’t have a shot at her. Because the next time Zac sees Robyn, he’s front and center of the male revue headlining her best friend’s bachelorette party. So much for wooing the pretty schoolteacher, much less impressing her old-fashioned family, with his upstanding lifestyle. Now he’s only got one way to win his dream girl. It’s gonna be the steamiest, most irresistible seduction she’s ever seen. And this time it will be no act …
