I’m a yes girl. Get your mind out of the gutter; I’m not talking about sex. I’m talking about saying yes to whatever comes my way in life. So when I had the chance to move to Europe after college, I said, yes. When I had the chance to open my own lingerie line, I said, yes. And when my stepsister got diagnosed with cancer and needed me to come home and help her raise her daughter, I said, yes. That’s me, Kenzie — the yes girl! In every area of my life but one —Love. Always the first to leave a relationship. Will I be able to say yes to love — to Kane — to being happy? Or will I simply come undone and be stripped raw?
Don’t let Kenzie fool you! She’s a master at hiding behind a laugh and a smile. Being an attorney, I prefer the facts. This story isn’t as light and happy as my yes girl would have you believe. No laugh can sugar coat what we are facing: I’ve lost everything. I know what it’s like to be left raw. But sometimes that’s the only way to find love. To strip yourself down, let the other person see all your shit, and hope they love you anyway.

~ 4.5 Love Without Regrets Stars ~
Prescott Lane has grown into such a beautiful writer. I have loved and enjoyed each of her books that I have read. They continue to get better with each new release she has!!! In every book I read by her, my emotions are put through the wringer. I love that she can create stories and characters who feel like a part of me and I am immersed into their story.
Stripped Raw is so much more than just a love story between the Hero and heroine, it is also a journey/love story between two sisters. I thought the writing was flawless and the pace and flow of the story was well done. My only complaint about this story and what held this back from being a 5 star book for me, was that I thought the drama of Lily lasted a little too long. I get why she is in this story, but I thought that part of the storyline dragged on just a little too long, but it didn’t take away from myself enjoying this book. I will warn readers that the author does tackle some serious subjects in this story and some might be hard for some to read. I also want to let readers know that if you aren’t a fan of the instal-love type story, than this might not be for you. I personally didn’t have a problem with it, but some might.
In this story we meet Kane and Kenzie. They meet by chance and are thrown into a whirlwind romance. Kenzie is a Lingerie designer, who moved back home to help with her sister Tessa and niece Zoe. Kane is a high priced lawyer, who has always put his work first. When they meet the sparks fly and neither can deny their attraction to each other, but let me tell you….their road is not an easy one. Will Kane and Kenzie be able to get over all the hurdles in their way to get their HEA?? You’ll need to read this book to find out. I really LOVED Kane’s character. He was so lovable and swoony. I loved that no matter what he wasn’t about to back down or give up…on anything!!! Kenzie drove me crazy quite a bit, but I still liked her. She has some serious trust issues. She was really good at running away, and that got a little old by the end of the book.
We also meet some great secondary characters, but based off the storyline you could almost say they are just as important as Kane and Kenzie were to this novel.
So if you are looking for that book that is filled with so much emotion and a storyline that will keep you intrigued, then give Stripped Raw a chance. Make sure to have tissues next you, you will need them. Stripped Raw is a standalone novel with NO cliffhanger ending.
“I’m the good girl, very responsible, girl-next-door type.”
Should I tell her I took the virginity of the girl next door? Probably not. “I think you’re more than that,” I say, taking a step closer to her. That wasn’t a line. I really mean it. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think so.
I inch even closer, but she looks confused — a little like she wants me to kiss her, a little like she wants me to screw her, but mostly like she doesn’t want me to do anything more. I can’t blame her; we only met a few hours ago. Deacon is wrong about the one night stand thing. This woman isn’t looking for a hookup. I’m not, either. One night with her wouldn’t be enough. So I take a step back, my fists clenched at my sides to redirect my energy.
“That was my first catalog,” Kenzie says. “I plan on doing two a year.” She reaches for a sketchbook on her work table. “This is what I’m working on for the next line. I’ll be photographing them pretty soon. The line is inspired by men’s clothing, so pinstripes and. . . .”
She keeps talking about the different fabrics, colors, and textures she plans to use. I have no idea what she is saying, but marvel over what I’m seeing — corsets and bustiers, vests with garter belts, bras, and G-strings. I love that these ideas, these fantasies, came out of her mind. She is so much more than she thinks, so much more than the girl next door.
Kenzie flips to another sketch, this one of a navy bra and panty set with stockings and heels. That will look perfect on her — especially bent over my office desk. My cock throbbing, I take a deep breath and try to focus on what Kenzie is saying. My eyes search the catalog pages for anything to distract me. “What’s this?”
“Cuffs,” she says, “like on a man’s dress shirt. But these double as handcuffs.”
Okay, that’s it. The arts-and-crafts show is officially driving me crazy. My dick is rock hard now, and I can’t take it anymore.
