Stripped by Piper Lawson – REVIEW



“I’ve been in New York four weeks. I’m behind on the spring line, days from homeless, and getting sued by the only person in the whole damn city who’s seen me naked.”

Ava Cameron has stars in her eyes. When the feisty designer moves to NYC after graduation with her best friend, things are finally clicking into place.

But now their brand new label, Travesty, is under attack.

The man leading the charge is the hottest hookup Ava ever had. One she never wanted to see again…

Nate Townsend might be from the right schools, the right neighborhood and the right family. But under the surface, his scars run deep.

When the society prince and the loud designer come face to face on a case that could decide Ava’s future, sparks fly.

Nate’s not about to let Ava forget she’s the only person who knows his secrets. And Ava’s walking the line between getting Travesty back on track and being dragged into the gutter by one stubborn young lawyer planning to take her down.

If Nate Townsend didn’t make the gutter look so damn good…


4 Stars

The perfect balance between hot, funny and sweet. This book was so much fun to read.

My Thoughts

This is the second book in the Travesty series. In the first book we followed Lex, who was the financial “brains” behind the company. Lex hooks up with Ava’s brother Dylan and we get to see them make the transition in to a long distance relationship, but mostly this is an interconnected stand alone. The story picks up where the last book left off, but follows Ava Cameron, the loud, quirky, creative designer part of the Travesty team.

The girls have moved to New York to work on their clothing line. The book starts with Ava meeting a hot sexy, mysterious “suit” that she goes home with and never thinks about again. The girls get word that they are being sued for copyright infringement from another designer and have to meet with lawyers. Much to Ava’s surprise the “suit” she went home with is the lawyer in charge of the case against her.

The back and forth banter and the way that these two fight make this book so much fun. This is one of my favorite types of story… the couple that hate each other and end up together. Nate and Ava had such a strong connection that they could not stay away from each other and just kept finding themselves pulled back together again and again. This book was so funny, surprisingly sweet, super sexy and overall a really great read.

Notable Quotes

I’ve been in New York for four weeks. I’m behind on the spring line, a week from homeless and getting sued by the only person in the whole city who’s seen me naked.

The way you guys argue? It’s like watching through a peephole in Amsterdam.

If we lose this lawsuit, could you guys make two hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth of porn?

Ava reminded me of the peonies that used to stubbornly grow in the middle of my mother’s rose garden. Beautiful and unapologetically unique.

That’s what my life feels like some days. Like I woke up in a strange place and don’t know how I got there.
