This was one of those books that held my attention from beginning to end. I found the story to be fast paced and full of intrigue. Of course the mystery surrounds the dual personalities of Keisha/Alexa; a real Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation of which personality to win out.

The good:

I liked that we got to read a bit of both personalities, though Alexa is our heroine and the won we read 90% of the time.

Matt. The description of his butt alone makes him book boyfriend material. I like that he doesn't try to change Alexa, he likes her as she is and is willing to take the risk and love her as is. He is also strong, smart, and sexy.

Keisha. I'm not into hustlers, but she intrigued me and I wish that I knew more about her, the jobs she did for Gamboldt and her relationship with Sammy (hint. hint.)

Sammy. Its weird that I like him, he's one of the bad guys, but he managed to worm his way into my book heart. Every character is worthy of redemption and I hope he finds his mulatto cowgirl. (hint.hint.)

Dane. So hot. Stoic, strong, sensitive. The perfect alpha male.

Alexa. She is one of the few female heroine's that I genuinely like. She is smart, cunning, and strong without being to hard and manly. She appreciates her talents without coming across arrogant and knows her limitations; she is never weak, not even when she is crying. I like a character that is strong without being bull headed( hello there Katniss); willing to jump into the fray, but knows enough not to cut off her nose despite her face.

The Bad:

Matt and Alexa could have had more chemistry and I could have had more action. I thought Alexa deserved the kill shot, but Matt was sex protecting her. Also, the book could have progressed in certain areas; reading about Alexa taking care of the Inn wasn't my favorite, but it was necessary since I would have been wondering who taking care of that for her.

I'm just saying:

Please write a sequel. PLEASE!

A woman, known as Keisha Walker finds herself on a stage in a smoky bar stripping for customers. But something isn't right. She doesn't feel like her name is Keisha and she definitely doesn't feel like she is a stripper. As a matter of fact, the more she thinks about it, the more wrong everything feels. And even worse, when she tries to remember who she is and what she really should be doing, she only gets a blank. What she does learn very quickly is that she is exceptionally strong, has a extremely sensitive nose (she can smell even the most infinitesimal scent) and she knows how to hurt people -- bad.

Following a primal instinct that tells her to get out and get out fast, "Keisha" manages to bust her way out of what is a small, nowhere town in the Midwest and get herself to Boston. Even as she travels east following some instinct that only her buried psyche knows, her memory starts to come back in frustrating fits. She learns her real name, Alexa but wonders why there are goons hot on her trail, intent on following her and bringing her back? What is so important about her that bodies seem to be falling in her wake?

Once in Boston some of the gaps begin to fill, she meets an erstwhile lover Matt who, as it happens, is a werewolf. While Alexa herself is half-werewolf and apparently a very lethal assassin. Alexa and Matt team up to find out why one of Boston's most elite businessmen is hell bent on keeping Alexa under control and completely unaware of who she is.

When I began reading this book, I was immediately sucked in. Alexa's confusion and her circumstances were presented with just the right amount of uncertainty (the book is told in first person) to get the mystery really revved up. And as she got herself out of her first precarious situation and met up with Matt, I thought I'd be in for a real treat she the two team up to get to the bottom of what the heck is going on. But curiously, the book fell flat in the middle. There was a lot of action, more people still showing up to get at her, but it felt like a lot of the time, she and Matt ran around in circles, being accosted without actually learning much of anything.

The story also felt a bit muddled. I didn't get a great feel for her paranormal universe. There are werewolves, vampires, witches etc. but they seem more like wallpaper than a fully realized alterna universe. And while Alexa had been missing for quite a bit of time, the reactions of the people when she returned seemed a bit subdued. The book felts a bit crowded with a somewhat unnecessary murder/lawyer/therapist sub-plot. Also I felt taken aback to learn in the last 10% of the book that Alexa has an entire family. I wondered where they were and why they hadn't show up earlier?

The book picks back up again in the last 20% of the book (can you tell I read this on my Kindle? heh). Things finally begin to move, and Alexa (finally) begins to take control of her fate. But even so I was still a bit disappointed. For such a bad-a$$ lethal assassin, she can off as still somewhat ineffectual. Matt also. I wanted more kick-assery from them and did not get it. I wanted that 'Hells yeah!' moment when they did something completely awesome and didn't get that either.

The villain is of a villain type I despise. Powerful and evil just because. No other motivation. He's just evil and wants more power. Yawn. This is the big bad they've been running from the entire book and when you finally meet him you're like...that's it?

The epilogue leaves open a door for a sequel. But I doubt if I will be looking it up, unless Alexa and Matt become more forceful than they were in this book. It is a shame because I think this author writes really, really well. But I was not compelled to stay in her world.

Also important to note: this is not a paranormal romance. While Alexa and Matt are acknowledged lovers and end up together, the romance portion of the book is almost nil. This is pure UF

It seemed like an interesting twist - a stripper heroine with amnesia. Unfortunately the concept is the only interesting part of this novel. The writing is cliched and awkward as are the characters. The plot is trite. I was not impressed.

I read the summary and saw the price and thought it would be a good entertaining read for a good price. I was wrong. I found the writing style completely clunky and jarring. I couldn't even get past the 3rd chapter I found it so bad. The heroine is totally unlikeable, at least to me. Her reaction to people offering help is to threaten them and her so called boyfriend didn't seem to be much help either once they finally meet up. I rarely return books and when I do, it's because I find them completely terrible. This is one of the few books that I've requested to be returned.

This was my favorite work of fiction for the year! I had a lot of work to do at the time that I purchased it, but I COULD NOT put this book down! It was a very welcome, pleasantly-surprising story with rich characters whom I immediately bonded with. Great work by Ms. Colette. I want more.

I absolutely agree with the other person that gave this novel also five stars. The plot as well as the heroine, Lex, are really good. It is an awesome paranormal thriller full of action, werewolves, witches and humans. In other words, a must read for all those of us that love the paranormal genre!

Stripped has an interesting, twisty plot that keeps the reader turning pages. The main character, Lex, grows through the novel, although her boyfriend/wolf does not seem to keep pace with her. Some scenes were tough to read, leaving the reader relieved when Lex regained control of her mind. A good read.
