Naked by Gina Gordon

The deeply sensual Body & Soul series kicks off with “a fun, sexy emotional read” (Lisa Renee Jones), as one woman discovers the courage to face life’s greatest challenges—and explore her connection with a handsome neighbor.

Violet Walker has been hiding. Withdrawn after a terrible car accident, she is worried about going back to her high-pressure job, where she’s expected to project confidence and sleek refinement. Allowing herself a distraction, she’s been watching her sexy neighbor work on his house. But when the shirtless, grinning hunk catches her in the act, Violet is struck by the unmistakable jolt of physical chemistry, a sensation that’s both thrilling and terrifying.

Noah Young is used to moving from one construction job to another, never laying a firm foundation. The same goes for the women in his life—until Violet changes all that. His beautiful voyeur embraces his rough edges and shows him a hint of real love. But even Noah can tell that she’s holding back, hiding her body and her heart from what they both truly want. If only he could get a little help convincing Violet to see herself as he sees her: perfect in every way.

3.5 Stars
I liked this story, but I have to say I found myself a little bored at times. The found the characters interesting. I loved Noah! The man with infinite patience. Harper is also one of my favs. I love the way she accepts herself and helps others to bring their sexy back. I had a hard time connecting to Violet though. I've heard good things about Miss Gordon's writing style and overall I did find the story entertaining. I would definitely read some of her other work.

3.5 Stars
I really liked the story I just felt that the characters were difficult to connect with.

Violet Walker was in a car accident where she not only lost her fiancé, but it also left her with scars on her body that she believes are hideous and have caused her to have self-esteem issues. After the accident, Violet decides to pick up and move to a small town and take over her father’s business. Violet spends the bulk of her time inside her new home admiring her sexy neighbor who has been working on his house. Violet decides that a hook up with him is just what she needs to battle her self-esteem issues. Noah Young is a construction worker who is battling issues of his own after being dumped for being “just a construction” worker. When he notices Violet, his new neighbor watching him he decides to take matters into his own hand and attempt a relationship.

I really enjoyed most of this book but there were parts in the middle that I just skimmed because I couldn’t connect with the characters. I plan to check out the next book in this series to see where the author takes this next.

When her dream of becoming a mafia princess didn’t pan out, Gina Gordon went after her second dream: becoming a writer. And she hasn’t looked back. A self-proclaimed happily-ever-after junkie and cupcake connoisseur, Gordon loves spinning contemporary tales of knee-bending first kisses, unconditional love, and super-hot sex. She lives in Milton, Ontario, with her husband and their lovable dog.
