Stripped by Tara Wyatt


The first in a sexy new series from Tara Wyatt!

Detective Sawyer Matthews isn’t just having a bad day—he’s having the worst day. His hunt for the criminal who killed his team member has stalled and now… he’s got to play nice with his new, totally unwanted partner. It’s not that she isn’t qualified, or that he doesn’t like her—it’s because he knows what she looks like naked. So very, very naked.

Brooke Simmons finally landed her dream job working for H.E.A.T, an elite undercover detective squad, and she’s not giving up simply because she had a one-night-stand with her sullen—but undeniably sexy—new partner. They’ll just have to keep it professional. Easier said than done, considering their first case requires Sawyer to infiltrate a drug cartel operating out of a male strip show. Watching him do his best Magic Mike impression every night isn’t just hot—it’s torture.

Sawyer doesn’t need any distractions, yet his attraction to Brooke is explosive and he can’t resist going for round two. Or three. Or four. But as their investigation progresses and danger mounts, they’ll have to put their jobs, hearts, and lives on the line to fight… for each other, for survival, and for justice.

Brooke is a strong character to begin with. When you meet her, she's licking her wounds after a humiliating debacle at a wedding... meeting her date's wife. Whew! However, she finds the perfect distraction... a bad decision, but a yummy one all the same. My first impressions of Brooke are that she's steady and will make a great character.

Then you have Sawyer. He's grieving the loss of his partner and despite knowing there wasn't much he could have done to prevent it, the guilt is eating at him. When he sees Brooke at the bar, something calls to him. Their one night is full of steam and passion, but Sawyer has a killer to find.

When Brooke walks into her new job and sees that her new partner will be none other than Sawyer, she doesn't cower, nor does she turn into a vapid character. I really liked that about her. She stands up to his arrogant and cocky ways and even makes him think twice about making her mad. I loved how Sawyer, despite his feeling distracted, is constantly wanting to protect Brooke too.

This is a fast-paced story with a lot going on. You have the main characters, but you also have the secondary characters who make this story just as strong. I can't wait to see what happens next in this series.
