Rett Cameron is stranded in Resort City without a cent to her name. She wants to go home to Australia but how does she do that without money? When one of the locals offers to pay her for her sexual services, she’s stunned. Sex with strangers? For money? Or is there more involved?

Hamish Clark, the local strip club owner, has a suggestion for Rett. Strip for me and I’ll pay you. The minute he saw Rett he wanted her. He soon discovers she has other needs than just money. But Hamish has a problem. Not all women like him. One wants him dead.

Hot, raw, sensual, with a villain and a believable love story! For only forty-six pages, Strip for Me is a firecracker!

Broke and desperate to get home, Loretta “Ret” Cameron walks into Hamish Clark’s The Howl and the Pussy hoping for a job as a waitress. But Hamish doesn’t need a waitress; he needs a stripper or a fetish worker. So Hamish asks Ret to strip for him. Sparks fly immediately between Hamish and Ret. Their verbal sparring heightens their attraction and it’s just delicious to read. Ret and Hamish immediately combust, and Ret decides to stay as a fetish worker.

Hamish is a strong hero. He is immediately attracted to Ret, but senses she needs something more. So he hires her to work as a fetish worker at his club. He’s protective and just as attracted to Ret as Ret is to him.

Ret is a fascinating heroine. When I read the description for this book I had visions on a somewhat inexperienced girl forced to work as a stripper. Instead, Ret is so much more. She isn’t some shrinking violet; she’s a strong, sexual woman who’s had fun and grabs life by the horns. As her sister tells her, “You’re a gypsy, Loretta. You’re always off on one wild adventure after another, expecting people to bail you out when you’re in trouble. You have to stay in one place and learn to be normal. You can’t act reckless all your life.”

To which Ret asks herself, “What the hell is normal?”

As Ret starts working as a fetish worker, you’d think this would draw Ret and Hamish apart. Instead, her sexual adventures brings them closer. What I’d thought might come off as erotica scenes in a romance didn’t because of Ret’s focus on Hamish. Ms. Jones showed remarkable skill in this respect.

At the core of the book is a beautiful and raw relationship between Ret and Hamish. It’s not your traditional romance, but it dazzles. The sex is hot, steamy, and sometimes funny. I not only laughed with Ret, I also lusted for Hamish with her. I felt both Ret and Hamish’s emotions. The villain interweaved perfectly with the story, and created a great climax. The author’s voice was strong and carried the story. Ms. Jones gave Ret a spunkiness that made this story crackle.

If you’re looking for an erotic short story with captivating characters, a unique story, and scrumptiously raw sex, Strip for Me is for you. This is the first book I’ve read by Amarinda Jones and I can’t wait to read more.
