Blog Tour Stop Trashy, Take It Off by Cambria Hebert


She’s trying to move on, but the past won’t let her go.

I fell in love once.

It was a big mistake, but the biggest mistake of all was staying with him.

He pushed me around. He cheated and treated me like trash.

I don’t feel sorry for myself, because I let him.

But no more.

I moved out. I'm saving my stripper's salary for an education that will get me somewhere better.

But breaking the chains of a shitty past isn’t easy. He says I owe him. He says we aren’t done. I don’t care what he says anymore. 

I do care about Adam.

But my history tells me I’m not the best judge of men. And the fact Adam’s been married four times tells me he probably isn’t a safe choice.

I need safe. I need better. I need out.

If the past is any indication of my future, getting out isn’t going to be easy.

“Kiss me.”

He didn’t need to be told twice. In seconds he was standing to his full impressive height and towed me up along with him. Adam released my hand and cupped my face. His hands engulfed my jaw but he was so gentle. His eyes swept over me like I was the most beautiful thing he’d ever seen and around us sparks flew like snowflakes in a blizzard. 

Instead of crushing his mouth to mine like I expected, like I wanted, he took his time. His heated gaze dropped to my lips, then back to my eyes. His fingers spasmed against my head and tightened ever so slightly.

Slowly, slowly he lowered his head, cupping my jaw so that I could do nothing but hold still and wait for him to arrive.

The anticipation of his lips on mine was almost my undoing. Everything going on inside me head floated away. I became aware of the moment, of the quietness in the room, of the way my body swayed wanting to get closer.

Adam’s lips brushed over mine, a gentle caress, once, twice and then a third time. He lifted his head just slightly and stared down at me, his thumb climbed up and caressed my lower lip.

He smiled softly and then joined our lips once more.

“There had to be more out there than this.”

We’ve met Roxie and Adam in the second book of the Take It Off series, Tease, where they were side characters. I, personally, was happy to hear they were going to get their own book. You could feel the chemistry between them in Tease, you just knew there was more. Or should be.
Roxie was a small-town girl, where people either stayed because they didn’t want more or left because they did. Roxie fell in the latter category. She wanted more and she got it. More than she bargained for, in the form of an abusive boyfriend and a relationship that only went downhill.
So, there was really no surprise that she wanted nothing to do with men. “I needed a man like I needed a third nipple,” was what she said and I got her, I did. But Adam… *sigh* “He was all alpha male; he exuded strength. He exuded intimidation.
Adam has to be one of my favorites from this series. Right next to Cam [Tease], Nate [Text], Tucker [Tryst] and Brody [Tattoo]. Adam is really not the picture of stability when it comes to relationships – he had four failed marriages – but he was a good boss and friend, a good person. The chemistry between them built slowly and it escalated when there were no more obstacles between them, i.e. Adam’s wife and Roxie’s crazy ex.

“I wanted Roxie. I was going to have her.”

I liked the book, a lot. The only thing I disliked was how Roxie dragged out the entire I’m-not-telling-anyone-anything-and-it-will-go-away thing. No, it won’t. Otherwise, it was a good story. The hot scenes with Adam and Roxie, Adam being all grumbly and protective – not to mention, possessive. 

So, this is why I’m giving it four stars. I wouldn’t say no to an Adam, that’s for sure.
