The first in a sexy new series from Tara Wyatt!
Detective Sawyer Matthews isn’t just having a bad day—he’s having the worst day. His hunt for the criminal who killed his team member has stalled and now… he’s got to play nice with his new, totally unwanted partner. It’s not that she isn’t qualified, or that he doesn’t like her—it’s because he knows what she looks like naked. So very, very naked.
Brooke Simmons finally landed her dream job working for H.E.A.T, an elite undercover detective squad, and she’s not giving up simply because she had a one-night-stand with her sullen—but undeniably sexy—new partner. They’ll just have to keep it professional. Easier said than done, considering their first case requires Sawyer to infiltrate a drug cartel operating out of a male strip show. Watching him do his best Magic Mike impression every night isn’t just hot—it’s torture.
Sawyer doesn’t need any distractions, yet his attraction to Brooke is explosive and he can’t resist going for round two. Or three. Or four. But as their investigation progresses and danger mounts, they’ll have to put their jobs, hearts, and lives on the line to fight… for each other, for survival, and for justice.

If you like uber steamy romance with a touch of thrilling mystery, than this is the perfect read for you!! Stripped is a well blended romance that is sure to have readers singing it's praises, the characters were superbly crafted, the story line was engrossing, and the secondary characters will leave you excited for the upcoming installments! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one, if was fun to see a heroine take charge and be able to stand toe to toe with her alpha male counterpart on the job and off. Brooke surprised me more than a few times with her strength and tenacity, and had me in her corner the whole way through... and maybe even a little envious too! This was an impressive and highly enjoyable start to the Blue Heat series; it's certain to curl your toes, warm your heart, and leave you smiling!! Highly recommend!!
