My Bare Lady by Piper Sheldon (Book Review)


⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.5 Stars)

My Bare Lady is the first book in the Scorned Women’s Society Series, a brilliant spin-off of the Green Valley Universe stared by the ladies that were “dumped” by Jethro Winston, back in his womanizer days.

We follow the somewhat tragic story of Suzie Samuels (aka Short Fuse Suze), a stripper and dancer for The Black Demons, the rival gang motorcycle club of the Iron Wraiths.

Suzie is getting deeper and deeper into the club life, and she just can’t see the way out. She’s judged only by her appearance and current profession, without anyone even giving her the chance to prove that she’s more than a piece of meat.

Enter Clifford Rutledge. Cliff is also in a sticky situation, and so it happens that Suzie is the only one that can help him out. In a twisted and heartwrenching My Fair Lady reimagining, this book will give some serious food for thought, as it does an extraordinary job to bring this classic tale to a current and modern setting.

Ultimately, My Bare Lady is a beautiful book that teaches you perspective and compassion, highlighting that everyone has a story to tell.

As protagonists, Suzie and Clifford are multifaced characters that will keep you on your toes. They are interesting, complex and have a beautiful development through the story. As we get closer to the final pages it’s easy to analyze how they were so important to each other’s growths.

A tiny complaint would be that the one main conflict (that tied Suzie to The Black Demons) was a bit obvious. I’m not a fan when stories rely on blatant miscommunication to keep the conflict going. There were a lot of opportunities for the truth to have come to light, and maybe it would have even been interesting to see how both Suzie and Clifford would deal with that newfound fact. But, really, in the overall context of the book, it’s a minor observation that doesn’t affect the end results. My Bare Lady is an amazing read, and I’m certainly looking to read a lot more about the Scorned Women’s Society.

This was an ARC sent to me in exchange for an honest review.
