Review: Strip for Me by Amarinda Jones

Strip for Me by Amarinda Jones

Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Genre: Erotic Romance

Heat Rating: 4



Rett Cameron is stranded in Resort City without a cent to her name. She wants to go home to Australia but how does she do that without money? When one of the locals offers to pay her for her sexual services, she’s stunned. Sex with strangers? For money? Or is there more involved?

Hamish Clark, the local strip club owner, has a suggestion for Rett. Strip for me and I’ll pay you. The minute he saw Rett he wanted her. He soon discovers she has other needs than just money. But Hamish has a problem. Not all women like him. One wants him dead.

Be Warned: bdsm, multiple partners, sex toys, anal sex.

Denise’s Review

Rett needs money. Hamish needs a stripper. What could possibly go wrong?

This the second book by Ms. Jones I have read and unlike BAD GIRL – which I didn’t love but thought had a few redeeming qualities – STRIP FOR ME left me feeling hollow and somewhat dirty. I can understand the appeal of sex for sex’s sake, but as far as the romantic element, there really was none. I didn’t particularly care for Rett or Hamish, and the subplot involving the one woman who wants Hamish dead felt weak and forced.

The sex scenes themselves were numerous and titillating, but without an emotional connection between the two leading characters, I found them dissatisfying. The other scenes between Rett and various partners seemed more fitting; since the story itself was little more than a scripted porn movie, bringing complicated emotions into the mix felt forced and inauthentic.

Readers looking for a quick, sexed-up read will enjoy this book. I will say it does deliver on its promise – I was just hoping for something I doubt this author can deliver.
