Synopsis via Goodreads:
“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.
I really enjoyed Stripped and would definitely recommend it for anyone who loves a good love story but without all the crazy sexual exchanges that go on. Basically Stripped is about a young woman who’s going through some extremely difficult life challenges, while at the same time trying to figure out who she really is and what she truly wants. Stripped is one of those books that quite a few people can generally relate to even though their circumstances may be a little different, but it’s what shaped Quinn.
The one part that stood out to me the most was the fact that this love story wasn’t just sex and a few dates. Quinn and Torrin started out with friendship which blossomed into love and so on.
Heart wrenching, witty and overall a wonderful love story.
