Release Day Blitz-- Trashed ~V~


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***


“Not sure what you’re after, Adam, but I’m probably not the kind of girl you think I am.” With that parting shot, she pushes through a set of double doors, shoving her trashcan ahead of her. Shot down. Jesus. That hasn’t happened in a while. I grin. I’ve always enjoyed a challenge.”

Des Ross never in a million years felt she stood out in a crowd.  She’s nobody, a trash collector.  She works summers in tourist town, while attending classes back in Detroit to earn her Master’s Degree.  With only her best friend, Ruth, Des’ life is simple.  She doesn’t rely on anyone, trust anyone, and by being closed off, she doesn’t get hurt.  It doesn’t help her loneliness though…

Adam Trenton is the next big thing.  Hot movie star status, built like a linebacker, and gorgeous to boot.  Touring the city during a brief stay in a little tourist town in the back of a horse-drawn carriage with his co-stars, a cascade of long raven hair catches his eyes…and he HAS to investigate further.  I mean, it’s not every day you see a hot chick in a jumpsuit walking down the side of the road.  Much less a woman who can look him (and his six foot-four inch frame) in the eye.  What he didn’t anticipate was being shot down before he even had the opportunity to make his move…

“I’m intrigued by you. I don’t know what this is any more than you do, Des.  The last thing I have time for right now is to get involved in anything, but I can’t seem to stop myself.”


That’s what they need.  And of course, Adam is only in town for the weekend…yet, they are drawn to each other as if they have all the time in the world.  It’s not until the weekend ends that Des sees everything for what it was, and wasn’t.  Despite having secrets, she gave him a gift that she never thought she’d be able to give.  And he found a way to get under her skin…even if she has to let him go.  Their worlds just don’t mix, no matter the connection and Des just can’t let herself get attached knowing it will lead to nothing but hurt and heartache.

“I want him. I want him. But I’m scared of letting myself go there. I’m scared of what will happen.  Not to my body, but my heart. And I’m scared I’ll freak out at the last second, and mess everything up.”


“There’s something here, Des. Between us. There is, and I know you know there is. You’re just scared.  Of what, I’m not sure.” “Of what? Of everything.” “Why?” I let out a breath. “Because that’s what life has taught me.”

So, now they are at a crossroad.  Will she let him in, learn to let go just enough? Or will her secrets of a former life overshadow her shot at happiness with a man who can give her everything she’s ever dreamed of?  A place to belong, a love that doesn’t leave, a trusting relationship…a home.

Jasinda never fails to surprise me with her words.  I am always put on a rollercoaster of emotions when reading her stories, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.  I fall in love with her characters, the settings, and the connections.  She is truly a master at her craft and this book is no exception.  Des and Adam are the perfect contrast, yet they fit together perfectly.  I love how their worlds collide, and how despite her upbringing she is real.  There is no trying to be something she’s not, and he loves her for it…I love that her beauty is not measured by her waist size but how she carries herself. I love that he’s bi-racial and the boundaries of relationships is not measured in color.  I love the two sides of the train track story, and how life throws curve balls but the inner strength of each character shines and they just roll with it.  This is a fantastic story of overcoming all stereotypes and being truly happy in your skin. I loved every word.
