Stripped Down - An Author's Review

This is my first book from author Mae Hardin. Right off the bat, I have to let you know that I don't normally like reading in the first person narrative. My opinion has not changed. With the bad out of the way, let's talk about what is good with the story. The story itself is a quick and easy read that catches you (even if it is in the first person) right off the bat at a bachelorette party. Who doesn't like a good bachelorette party? Though, the details were there, I was still wondering what the sexy little drinks tasted like.

At the beginning of the book, I wasn't really a fan of either the H or the h. The H was standoffish and not very likable. Gradually, he did become more redeemable in my eyes but only just. As a construction worker, Brooks was pretty stereotypical. I've worked with my fair share of construction workers (being one myself for many years). He was gruff and so much like some of the guys I worked with once upon a time.

The h is well developed but seemed, again, very standoffish at the beginning of the book. There was some very good chemistry between the two characters right off the bat but, I just didn't like her. I know many of you may and that is redeemable.

Overall, the story was good. Plot was decent. Characters were good but could've been more likable. I give this book a 4-star rating.
