What’s a topless dancer to do when a cop tells her to “spread ’em”? Cooperate, of course. Which is exactly what Jazzmyn Monroe does when her big-city dreams land her in a world of trouble and the arms of sexy detective Ryder Muldoon. Jazzmyn is no angel, but she doesn’t expect the rip-roaring, passion-filled rollercoaster ride given by one of L.A.’s finest.
An honest cop with a target painted on his back, Ryder is forced to go rogue if he wants to stay alive, and the hottest woman he’s ever laid eyes on is the key to his plan. It’s supposed to be just business with a side of sex. If only it were that simple. Jazzmyn’s sinful curves and aptitude for red-hot loving ramp up his libido…and a whole lot more.
I was intrigued by the suspense plot, but there are a few things that fell short with me. I know this is an erotic romance, but I felt in certain places, there was sex just for the sake of having sex. I find it hard to believe that a cop would have sex with a dancer almost immediately after he meets her and needs her information to take down a villain. Because that started out so early on in the story, it took away my trust in the hero. Jazzmyn's character was more believable and likeable.
The plot was riveting enough that I continued to read. I wanted to know how things would end, and what would happen between Jazzmyn and Ryder.
If you like erotic romantic suspense, then you may enjoy Strip Down.
