Blurb : Stripper is no stranger to using whatever means necessary in order to gain the information he needs. He’s been hired to find a missing woman who has the codes Nicolas Reno is after. When Stripper kidnaps Reno and takes him to a place where he plans to torture the man for information, he soon discovers that he just might have the wrong guy. Wilbur Castro has no clue why he’s been kidnapped. He wakes tied to a chair in a grungy room with no recollection of the night before. The stranger with hazel eyes keeps calling him Reno and no matter how much Wilbur argues otherwise, the guy isn’t listening to him. His captor is convinced that Wilbur is the man in question. When the real Reno goes after Wilbur, intent on stealing the man’s identity and life, Wilbur finds himself reaching out to the very man who’d kidnapped him.

My Review : We have long awaited Stripper’s chance at finding love. I was definitely not dissapointed.  Stripper has been the sexy fun loving, balls hanging out naked  bear of the house. He has been the most fun secondary character that I have met up to this point. It would stand to reason that his mate needs to be worthy of him. Everything about Wilbur is unique, even the circumstances he finds himself in when he first meets Stripper. Wilbur is tied to a chair about to be ‘dry drowned’ by Stripper who is working him over like the criminal he is ‘supposed’ to be. Only in this situation , Stripper’s intel is faulty. Wilbur is definitely not the mastermind criminal Stripper is hunting. He is just a shy, quirky, sexy little accountant who has lived a dull life. Wilbur is almost socially awkward, but there is just something about him that Stripper can’t get enough of. 

The criminal mastermind that Stripper is hunting looks exactly like Wilbur and he has decided to kill Wilbur and take over his identity. When he breaks into Wilbur’s hotel room, Wilbur is just in time to get outta there and call the Executive Bodyguards for help.  By the time they get to the restaurant , Stripper knows that something is awfully wrong. They find Wilbur shot in the shoulder, unconcious lying in a pool of his own blood. Stripper is going out of his mind , but he rushes Wilbur to the new shifter doctor Gallagher.  It is just a superficial wound and Wilbur soon recovers.

While on the mend , he has been getting to know his mate. Stripper is very warm, loving and introduces Wilbur to the art of online gaming  at which he is a pro. Stripper is hesitant to make love to Wilbur , because his mother died in childbirth and he is scared of the same happening to his mate.  Unbeknownst to Stripper his mate still ended up pregnant even though he didn’t bite him during sex.  Stripper begins to withdraw within himself emotionally and Wilbur is at a lost in understanding what to do.  He seeks out the other mates in the house but he doesn’t know how to express himself since he’s never had friends. Steven sees that he is overwhelmed and turned out to be a great confidante.

 Steven encourages him to have an honest talk with Stripper and he takes his advice. Wilbur decides to take the bull by its horns  and corners  Stripper  as he is about to go out on  a mission. Wilbur goes into warrior mode which is hilarious to see. Stripper gets the dressing down that he needs. They resolve their issues with a torrid makeup sex quickie. Ooh la la, Stripper is as hot as I imagined and Wilbur is the perfect mate for him. They have a beautiful baby boy named Abriel. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.
