There are some relationships that destroy your faith in people. They make you jaded and hard, irrevocably changing you forever. I wish I could say that I hate her, I wish I could walk away and never look back, but I can't... I have to save her.
The woman who stole my heart and crushed it in her hand disappeared from my life three years ago. So when I see her at a bachelor party, half naked, rolling around on the floor with another stripper, I'm shocked. I have to know what cracked Cassie Hale's picture perfect world that landed her in this hellhole, and I hope that I'm not so bitter that I can't help her escape.

Wow! I have to say this was a tough read, but so amazingly written. This continues the story of Jon and Cassie, but it so much more than a love story. The heart break and the trauma each have been handed in their lives is disturbingly real. I have worked in social work for many years and have to say I felt the story line was tragic, yet so unfortunately true.
This story was heartbreaking, yet didn't leave you feeling like there is no hope. Life is about hope and fighting your demons. This was an example of what one will do for that one person you love.
Fantastic read. Appalled the author's notes because not only is it informative, but sheds light as to where so of the ideas for story lines come from.
Awesome Sequel and Series Conclusion!
Stripped 2 is the sequel to Stripped and the conclusion to the Stripped series. In a sense, Stripped 2 is a second chance romance, but don't think for a minute that you know what will happen because it's not a typical second chance romance! From the first chapter, I was spellbound, and I just could not put it down!
The characters were complex, well developed, and likable. Jonathan Ferro appears at first glance to be a stereotypical rich playboy, but it turns out he is a savvy businessman. Who knew?!? Cassie is is his first love, now a stripper. It's clear that they are still very much in love with each other, despite their past history. Unfortunately, Cassie is married to an abusive man whose sadism shocked me beyond words, and Jonathan will most likely be disowned for buying the strip club where Cassie works. All of their coworkers, friends, and family seem to be against them. Is their love enough?
I loved, loved, loved the cameos by other favorite HM Ward characters and the way it intersects with other series by the author. It is a MUST READ. I highly recommend this book and series!
Keeping it real
Surprised and awed! Cassie and Jon set off on an extraordinary journey of healing. Unfortunately, there are people lurking...waiting for Jon to fail. Who would want that? Will Cassie ever be free of her past? Can Jon protect her?
H.M. Ward's Stripped 2 showcases all her amazing tricks of the trade, like humor and laugh out loud moments, to discuss topics that can be emotional and sensitive. I would definitely recommend reading this lengthy book. Amazing characters revisit the pages and yes...I finally have a 'Holly' style HEN/HEA ending I love! A definite read!
