Blue is just so hot! I mean seriously off the charts alpha hot. Lola/Hannah betrayed him 5 years before and she knows he is just buying his time to take out his revenge on her. Watching over her ever night as she strips and making sure that the clients don't abuse her is all he has been doing so far but now the time has come to get what he feels he is owed. Blue really has no idea why Lola is stripping and working at the Grand and really doesn't care until he starts figuring things out about her from spending time outside of work with her and Lola has no idea what Blue has been up to since she betrayed him. Both are beautifully broken and it's going to take them together to fix each other. The sex scenes are hot by the way so get ready!

Raw, gritty, painful and beautiful. I know those words usually don't go together, but that is the only way to describe it. This story is so intense I felt it to my marrow, it filled me with so many feelings. As always with all Skye Warren books, once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down.

This is the story of Lola (aka Hannah) and Blue, two people who share a painful past. They meet again while Lola is a stripper at a club called the Grand, and Blue is the bouncer/bodyguard.

Lola is a deeply troubled young woman trying to get by the best way she knows how, all while trying to support her former foster mother, Mrs. Owens, who has dementia and kidney failure. The interactions between Lola and her foster mom are bittersweet but heartwarming. Lola's world is turned upside down when Blue comes back into her life. He is always watching and waiting for a chance to get back at Lola for what she did to him.

The love scenes were brutal and tender all at the same time. The chemistry between Lola and Blue is explosive and it cannot be denied. But, it is more than just sex between these two, they forged a bond in childhood that survived crushing heartache and ultimate betrayal. This is a story of redemption, forgiveness, and a deep, all-consuming love.

This is my favorite so far from Mrs. Warren, she has a knack for writing characters who are broken but strong. Characters that go to hell and back and never give up. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in this exciting, heartwrenching, and beautifully painful series.

Hannah isn’t seeing Blue for the first time. Before they were foster kids in the same household, until she betrayed him or so he thought. Now five years later, he wants his revenge on Hannah aka now Lola. He finds her to be a Stripper and he gets a job as the head of security where she works. Every day he protects the girls while also stealing glances at her while she is working. The tensions become high when he wants to claim the price of Hannah’s betrayal. They agree to one night and that’s it, but that’s shot to s*** according to Blue. He wants her like he did five years ago, and this time, he isn’t asking rather he is saying.

I absolutely freaking love their story and I recommend reading Heart Break to learn about their before story. Lola is fierce and stands her ground, but inside she is caring. Blue pretends to hurt Lola yet he can't lie about his feelings, he has tried for the past five years now. They are my second favorite couple in the series behind Clara and Giovanni.

This was a great story and I wish I had read it sooner. Book 2 in the 'Stripped' series, 'Better When It Hurts' tells the story of Blue and Hannah, aka Lola. Their paths first crossed as foster children in their youths. At the time, the two were inseparable and falling in love. Now, they're all grown up and trying to come to terms with the scars of their past in their own ways.

If you've read the first book in the series, you'll remember Blue as the head bouncer at the strip club where Honor worked with Lola and Candy. What we didn't know was that Blue only took the job so that he could watch out for Lola, only working the days that she's working.

Lola is sure that Blue reappeared in her life to exact his revenge. She doesn't blame him. She screwed him over royally years ago, betraying their relationship and changing the course of both their lives.

Her assumptions are correct. Blue does want his revenge and he plans on taking it from her body. However, despite his anger and hatred for Lola, he can't seem to stop loving her. He wants vengeance, but more than anything, he want her.

Reading their story, I initially thought that Blue was overly cruel. Then, I remembered exactly what she'd done to him and decided that she had it coming. Even so, I felt sad for both of them. Talk about broken, they were both victims of fate from a young age. Their story was tragic.

Overall, I really thought this story was great. The storyline was engaging. The characters were compelling. The sex scenes were highly erotic and taboo. It was all-around fantastic!
