About this ebook

His best friend’s hot older sister.

Her younger brother’s annoying sidekick.

And one forbidden kiss in high school…


It was complicated back then. It’s even more so now. 


Because former mean girl Sloane rolls back in town to find Rick stripping at a charity event like he was born with biceps.

And single dad Rick is her landlord. 

And her brother will murder him if he has sex with her. 


But sometimes you have to strip it all down to see what was there all along...

It happens to the best of us. No more hiding behind snarky comments, over-inflated egos and childhood fantasy. Eventually we have to grow up. McCarthy reminds us that life has a tendency to get in the way, but it also pushes us through the heartache. Stripped Down is brash humor with a ton of heart and a dash of wisdom. The mean girl finally gets a long overdue reality check. Sloane is used to putting her best foot forward, but this time she has to do the work. It takes a less than stellar homecoming and a blast from her not so distant past to show her the error of her ways. Sloane, Rick and their slew of busybody friends are an irresistible bundle of heartwarming fun.

Stripped Down is the first book in Erin McCarthy's new series Tap That and if you like romantic comedies this is perfect for you. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more books in this wonderful series. Sloane has moved back home after a difficult divorce and to be there for her brother and nephew, but Rick Ryder her brother's best friend who has had a crush on her for years has decided that she needs to cut loose and have some fun. Fun with him! Can the once mean girl open up and share her feelings to those who should matter the most? I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

I read so many romantic novels they seem to all run together...& all be the same just the characters having different names. Stripped down was refreshing where I didn't feel like I was reading a book I read before but with a different title.
