Review: Stripped Bare by Frankie Love and C. M. Seabrook


Published May 2019

Blurb: I work with my hands … and Karis Quinn is the only thing I want to touch.

She’s curvy, cute-as-a-cupcake, and way too sweet for a hard-ass like me.

When I’m hired to renovate her bakery, I want to do more than strip these floors and make them shine.

I want to make Karis scream my name.

Over and over again.

She may be a virgin, but I’ve got a hammer.

And I know how to use it.


Dear Reader,

Filthy, over-the-top, and the perfect treat.

This one is true love at its finest.

Eli Blake is a blue-collar alpha with more than a tool belt.

This man knows how to seal the deal and put a ring on it.

xo, Frankie & Chantel


Hammers and Veils is a series of short and flirty stories sure to make you melt!


May be spoilers:

Stripped Bare is the 1st in the Hammers and Veils series. Each can be read as a standalone. This story is 10 chapters and 2 epilogues and is about Karis and Eli.

They meet when Eli’s sister talks him into fixing Karis’s bakery. Definite instalove for the both at first sight. She’s a virgin. He kind of flips for a minute cause he thinks she deserves better. He’s been cheated on in the past, so he’s a little scared.

She’s attacked by her ex, but Eli gets to her in time.

Everything moves fast. There are a few steamy parts. It was a sweet story. No separations, no cheating between mcs, no ow drama. Om drama is just a blip from her ex and was over quickly.

I thought it was a good read.

Epilogue is 3 months out, then 2 years later. They are happily married with a baby girl. Great story. I loved it. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.  Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
