Kenzie I’m a yes girl. Get your mind out of the gutter; I’m not talking about sex. I’m talking about saying yes to whatever comes my way in life. So when I had the chance to move to Europe after college, I said, yes. When I had the chance to open my own lingerie line, I said, yes. And when my stepsister got diagnosed with cancer and needed me to come home and help her raise her daughter, I said, yes. That’s me, Kenzie — the yes girl! In every area of my life but one —Love. Always the first to leave a relationship. Will I be able to say yes to love — to Kane — to being happy? Or will I simply come undone and be stripped raw? Kane Don’t let Kenzie fool you! She’s a master at hiding behind a laugh and a smile. Being an attorney, I prefer the facts. This story isn’t as light and happy as my yes girl would have you believe. No laugh can sugarcoat what we are facing: I’ve lost everything. I know what it’s like to be left raw. But sometimes that’s the only way to find love. To strip yourself down, let the other person see all your sh*t, and hope they love you anyway.
I was laughing out loud, crying, and getting nervous for these characters; at one time I even laughed so hard while crying! There is such love throughout this book you could feel all the emotions; like the sisterly love with Kenzie and Tessa, romantic love, even some unusual friendship occur. It’s FULL of second chances: at love, life, happiness, and even business. These characters go through some tough decisions and in the end you must read how everything finds a place of peace. I know I broke down several times reading this book but I found it also held a strong since of womanly power behind the hurt. Kenzie is such a loving person and tries to hold herself together at such a young age that would bring some men to their knees.
Kane is a sexy attorney who could bring any woman pleasure but chose to have his sites on Kenzie. Kane’s past brought his own heartbreak that made me cry for personal reasons and just makes you fall in love with him instantly when you hear his story! He is the kind of man you know will do whatever he can to make you happy regardless of the situation. His pain from his past brought on a whole different set of tears!
You will fall in love with these characters just as I did!! A MUST READ on your TBR list!!! You will cry but it will be worth the cry! This book is beyond 5 stars for Stripped Raw by Prescott Lane.
