[Blog Tour - Review] This Girl Stripped ~ Dawn Robertson

My innocence was shattered one steamy October night, when I sold my soul to the devil to pay for a week in a dirty motel room.
Thinking I could rid myself of him, I fled the safety of the nomad lifestyle I had embraced my entire life for the security of a small upstate New York town, alongside my big sister Star.

What I never anticipated was a green eyed stranger that would steal my heart and never look back. And a dark eyed man on a motorcycle, who would teach me how to trust again. Both of them completely shattering every wall I ever put up to keep men out of my vulnerable world.

I am Paisley Bloom, and this is my devastating story.

Jasmine's Review
The things I love and hate in this book is kinda equal. More on the good side though. One thing you should know (or not) is that I have only read the first book Hers. So I don't really know what happend with the other characters. 

Anyway! The things like first. Softens the things I don't like about this book.:)
- Paisley is a strong character. I just adore strong characters. It didn't take her FOREVER to get over her problems. She just took life's shit and threw it right back. 
- I had no idea who she would end up with. River or Diesel. I'm just happy that she did end up with HIM (I won't tell you who! Just read it).
- The story didn't take forever. It didn't dwell on the months after the rape. It didn't go into detail about how sad she was and how depressed she was. Like New Moon <- that is the most boring book I have ever finished seriously. (NO OFFENSE TO NEW MOON LOVERS)

Now onto the things I didn't like.
- The Triangle. This is probably my fault since i didn't read the summary well. But I hate triangles. This is just for me a lot of people love triangles and you might too.:) I just hate all the drama in triangles. But this really didn't have any angst so it's kinda a neutral thing. I guess? (Darn I suck at this!)
- How quickly she was able to have sex again. I'm not sure how this works since I don't know any rape victims but I am pretty sure there is gonna be a trauma. I don't think it would be that easy for a victim to allow the self to be touched again, but it might just depend on what kind of person you are. But as I said Paisley is a really a strong girl.
- I didn't really feel the connection between the characters. Between Paisley and River, and Paisely and Diesel. I just didn't feel the fire? Spark? Whatever you call it. If the story was a little bit longer then Dawn could have shown more of their connection is what I think. But what I think doesn't matter so READ IT! 

As y'all can see the things I didn't like is really useless and has nothing to do much with the story but more on my opinion. So try it and read it. You might just like it.:)

3.5 Stripper Pole ( It looks just like a normal pole.) :D

About Dawn:

Dawn Robertson is a twenty-something indie erotic romance, and mother.  She lives in sunny senior citizen packed Florida, where she wrangles her kids, and Pitbull puppy.
Dawn can normally be found swearing like a sailor, making late night drive-thru appearances, arguing with her kids (or being run over by their power wheels),  reading a steamy romance while hiding in her bathroom, writing her little heart out on her laptop (or dragging her Macbook to the Genius bar praying they can save her latest work in progress), or sipping on a smoothie. She loves to hear from her fans, readers, and authors alike. Feel free to drop her a message.
Dawn rarely takes life seriously, so be sure to expect heavy sarcasm from her. She is also the life of the party, so be sure to meet up with her at one of the many author events she will be attending in the next couple months. Buy her a shot of whiskey, and she will love you for life.
