I’m nobody. I’m an orphan. A janitor. A college student. A virgin.
And him? He’s a god. One of the hottest action stars to ever grace the silver screen, huge and muscular and gorgeous and famous. He could have anyone in the world.
Yet, despite the chasm separating my world from his, I find myself in his hotel room, and he’s acting like I’m the most beautiful girl in the world. I’m not. He’s everything every woman could ever want, and I’m just…me.
She doesn’t know how sexy she is, and that’s it’s own kind of beauty. But for real, she’s gorgeous. I’ve met some of the hottest women in Hollywood, and none of them can hold a candle to this girl. I want her. And the fact that she’s closed off and impossible to figure out only makes the pursuit that much more intriguing.
The last thing I expect is for one night of pleasure to turn into something I’m unable to forget, even after she’s gone her way and I’ve gone mine. I can’t forget her, no matter how I try. And the next time we run into each other, I know there’s no way I can let her go again. No matter what it takes.
***This is a full length, stand-alone contemporary romance, set in the world of STRIPPED***
~5 star review~
I love Jasinda Wilder's writing. Its always different and surprising, which makes it a very refreshing style of writing. Trashed, book two in the Stripped series by Jasinda Wilder was just that, a refreshing break from all romance stories that take on a similar note.
Trashed is about broken and magnetic Des Ross. She's a trash girl, a twenty two year old virgin at that, with one purpose in life, to find home. Everything in life seems to be simple for Des, compared to her dark past, it's just the way she likes until heartbreaker and Hollywood heartthrob Adam Trenton comes jumping into her life quite literally, then everything she has laid out for herself becomes foreign, unsafe and Adam becomes the safe zone for her.
Des was fantastic. She of course had her flaws. She wasn't afraid to stand up for herself, speak her mind, be vicarious, and most of all she was comfortable in her own skin which I know took work but the way Des flaunted what was given to her, it was truly phenomenal to watch. I know how hard living in your own skin can be especially when you're not a size two like what is expected of you. Des truly was a fantastic character. And the way she was with Adam. I loved it. They had such a raw chemistry. It was palapable through the pages of this book from the very beginning.
Adam, man Adam was sex and danger and everything that makes an alpha male appealing and attractive. Loved his confidence and masculinity. His drive and hunger too for Des was insatiable. You just couldn't get enough of these characters kind of like how Adam just couldn't get enough of Des.
I don't want to say too much about the story because I don't want to give too much plot away, but I will say this, the story line was uniquely different. It's refreshing to see the side of a Hollywood love affair that didn't start out with a traditional beginning. It was raw, I can't say that enough, emotional, magnetic and consuming. I loved the emotions you could just feel radiating from our characters.
Jasinda Wilder is not afraid to try any story. I love that about her writing. She can write an ugly cry with the best of them, she can make you laugh, mad, but most of all she can write you an unforgettable love story about the most unlikely of pairs. Trashed tested the theory for me of love and lust and told a beautiful tale all in between.
