Summary from Goodreads:
“I like you.” His voice is low and soft, which I don’t deserve. I look away, down the rutted parking lot.
“Don’t…waste those words on me.”
He touches my cheek. “You just need someone to show you.”
“No.” I ease back again. “I don’t. So please, Torrin, stop trying to swoop in and save me. I don’t need saving.”
College freshman Quinn Montgomery will do anything to avoid the mistake her sister made—killing herself over a boy. But when she is forced into nude modeling at a local college to support her family after a bankruptcy, she begins to crack, just enough to let Torrin, the university’s top varsity oarsman, see that the real Quinn is not as feisty and unapproachable as she wants everyone to think. But letting someone in comes at a steep cost and, it turns out, Torrin is connected to Quinn’s family in more ways than she could ever imagine.
5 of 5 Stripped
I have to say that I am loving NA genre more and more when I read books like Stripped. It is so heart wrenching and gut tearing that it makes it so believable. I remember when I was in college at that age and I was trying to find my way and partied and studied and dated but things were going so fast that at times it felt like I was not living reality. When I read these NA books I look back and think these books are spot on because the college years are really the years that develop you and make you who you are going to be.
In Stripped we get to meet two broken souls just trying to make it out of college and survive life's tragedy's. We have Quinn who is suffering from so much loss and tragedy that she feels like she can't breathe. Her father was involved in a scandal at work that left the family bankrupt and then her sister committed suicide. What more can a family take before they break? This is where Quinn is when she decides she needs money to help the family out so she decides she will be one of the art departments nude modeler. Quinn shows everyone at school a hard side to her but it is all a facade and one guy Torrin is about to shake Quinn's world because her house of lies is going to come crumbling down when Torrin breaks the walls she has built around her.

He sets his eyes on Quinn and he knows that something is there underneath all that snark and he wants to find out.
