Publisher's Summary

This sizzling and passionate romance follows two men whose lives are turned upside down by their intense mutual attraction.

Sam Richmond is a workaholic in danger of becoming the very man he despises - his father. Stressed and sick with worry, he’s desperate to shake off the shackles that bind him to his current path and embark on a life lived only for himself.

His friends are determined to pull him out of his funk and decide to drag him to a strip club that caters to both men and women. Sam is shocked when he develops an attraction to the show’s male headliner: Rico McIntyre. The two men end up in a backroom for a private lap dance that ends up being a game changer for them.

Because despite the fact they both identify themselves as heterosexual, they decide to explore their strange attraction for one another - if only for one night. But one night quickly becomes another and then another, until a misunderstanding tears the two apart. Both men attempt to forget about the other, only for life to unexpectedly reunite them.

Can Sam and Rico embark on a relationship and come to terms with their new understandings of themselves and who they love? Or are they doomed from the start?

Ummm...

I am a huge fan of Sebastian York and I absolutely love MM romance so those were the only two reasons why I picked up this audiobook, without thought...i’m not sure if this is Sebastian York’s first time MM romance but the fact that Strip Me some how got those two together I was over joyed and it was a no brainer PLUS I discovered a new narrator that I equally enjoyed listening to and he’s now on my list of fav narrators..Kale Williams, he did an amazing job! My only issue with Strip Me is that I feel like the author duped me with story at the end, and the fact that it felt as though there’s like so many parts missing, it ended so abruptly that I’m kind of upset by that. I’m debating on whether or not to return this audiobook but I don’t know. The story was okay and the narrators were absolutely awesome! I just wish the author did her research on MM romance...

Good Narration, dragging story

I bought this story for the great narrators and they did not disappoint. The first half was fairly enjoyable but after that it just drags and drags and drags. Rico’s actions make no sense throughout, even after his big reveal. Why Sam puts up with him is unclear. Their connection seems forced and they never actually talk to each other. After so much back and forth the quick ending is just unsatisfying. I only finished through sheer will.

Great Narrators, Disappointing Story

The story was actually not bad for most of it. It's hot and exciting and I was on board the whole way, except the author really leaves you hanging at the end. It felt like she ran out of time and didn't bother wrapping everything up. I'm not sure if this means there's supposed to be a sequel or not, but it definitely felt unfinished. Also, for all the agonizing the characters do about whether or not to have penetrative sex, she should have delivered on THAT at least... (yes, I'm griping because of the lack of b*tts*x in the book, but there was so much buildup and no payoff, lol).

Disappointing

Rico could have easily been a girl based on all the angst he expressed through the whole story. I've never known a guy of any persuasion who was such a whining prude. It got old quick, as did his "secrets". Sorry, I LOVE Sebastian York but even he couldn't make up for the frustrating character he played.

Deliciously Naughty

I am not going to lie the one and the only reason I pre-ordered this book was that of Sebastian York's narration on an MM book. I mean hello who wouldn’t want to listen to that??!??!

I enjoyed the story, it was sweet and difficult at times for both of these guys but once they let it happen it was truly beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for a better storyline. There wasn’t a lot of drama; no one was stuck in the closet. They embraced who they were. Was it always easy no what relationship is?
Growth is what makes the world go round so it was no different for these two having to navigate a new relationship they were both so new at.

Did I mention the narration?? Cause HELLO SebYo in an MM scene... HELLO HOTNESS. Thank you to the Lord above for the gift of SebYo’s delicious voice.

You make me believe in forever .. baby

My God! Where do I begin with this review? 😁 First of all, can I get a “hallelujah” for that cover? Girrrrrrrrrl, that cover is sickening and giving me life!!!! 😱😍❤️ Second, this is the book which SebYo got his cherry popped by the irresistible Kale Williams. I’m talking about SebYo’s very FIRST MM narration people! Get your minds out of the gutter! 🤣😜 And wow oh wow! 😱 What a performance! 🥰 This Audio was EVERYTHING! 💜

Sam lives a very stressful life. Being the only son of an infamous business mogul comes with more cons than pros. He’s always stressed, overworked and no time to enjoy life. But now, he found himself in a strip club on his birthday, courtesy of his soon-to-be ex-friends’ shenanigans, and being inexplicably attracted to the headliner “man” of the show. That’s right! 😉 There are tons of super stunning woman on that stage but that irresistible, gorgeous man in leather pants is the one who’s giving his life “in his pants”. (Lol, I’m rolling with pans you guys! 🤣😂) Sam has never been not even slightly attracted to a man but now he can’t take his eyes off that gorgeous stripper. Rico identifies himself as 100% heterosexual but the other birthday boy who’s sitting at the very edge of the stage with the feral look for him is making an impression on him. Hell, Rico is even giving an extra enthusiastic show for the man in suit. When Rico found the suit in bindings in his private room for a lap dance, both men lost their inhibitions. After all, it’s their birthdays and what happened on birthdays doesn’t count. Right?

My god, the beginning of this book was soooooo freaking hot that I thought I’d need a tub full of ice to cool down! 😅 It was that smoking hot! 🔥🔥🔥 And double GFY!!!! 😱🥳 Despite what you might think from the beginning, this book is very slow and sensual. Rico is the epitome of someone who’s afraid to lose his heart if he goes all in. The attraction was sizzling and both men are crazy for each other but that tug and pull and run and chase, I was ALL for it. 👋 I liked the fact that this book was quite realistic. It was insta-lust but definitely not insta-love. These two had to work hard to overcome their big differences and I loved that bittersweet angst in it. I would say this book ends as a HFN and I’m very hopeful for a sequel soon. 🙏 And surprise? Despite being it extra hot and spicy, there’s no actual sex in it. 😅 But rest assured, those two men together were so sexy and erotic that you wouldn’t even have noticed it. And my my, usually, I’m quite dreadful when it comes to dual romances because it is so difficult to convey each other’s voices when the two narrators are reading different chapters by themselves but SebYo ans Kale Williams were giving me life! Goosebumps guys! Goosebumps! 😳😱 Their narrations and performances are THAT good! This is my very first time reading Margay Leah Justice and I admit that the very reason why this book caught my attention was because Kale Williams is the narrator but this definitely won’t be the last time I’ll be reading from this author. Spectacular writing with phenomenal performance from the two very BEST narrators in the industry. 😍🥰 I couldn’t have asked for more. Now, I gotta stalk and demand the author for a sequel ASAP! Recommend this to everyone and their mothers! 😏 You are welcome girls! 😂

needs work

There are some enjoyable aspects to this book - for details read the other reviews ; )

I feel like this author/book needs more polishing, and less cut and past plot tropes. OK, I only made it 2/3 of the way through this before deciding I just didn't care about these guys as written/narrated. A review of unfinished book is only useful for why you did not finish.
HERE ARE THE ISSUES thus far:

the book starts w/ non con/dub con "erotica"
the aggressor in above switches to we need to take it slow not be physical until its real

Double gay for you: sexuality IS complex & doesn't alway fit labels, but this is just clunky

they are strip club hookups
then suddenly they are business rivals
then suddenly they are coworkers

a high power business at end of day, after receptionist and other workers have left, is unlocked so anyone can walk in and wander to any floor/office...etc
It just needs work.

Story/overall: there are lots of 2-3 stars bits w/ some 4-5 stars bits, I don't know how it ends, so 3 stars

Both narrators are good not great. And as is often the case, the dual narration completely unnecessary & unhelpful.
(sorry Sebastian York fans - please consider the rest before you deem this unhelpful!)

Need More

The narration was fantastic, and the story was interesting, but the ending left me wanting. I can only hope there is a sequel.

Absolutely Loved this book !

Great storyline ! And I totally believe the narrators made this book ever better ! Fantastic job by Sebastian York ( as always ) and my very first time listening to Kale Williams. Wow! His voice is wonderful! She couldn’t have picked two better narrators ! My only disappointment is the ending ...... Because, I didn’t want it to end! Hopefully she’ll continue and make this a series because I want to know what’s coming next !

I really enjoyed this book. It was fun, sexy, hot and had all the feels. I was disappointed that the book ended so abruptly, I hope that’s purposely done to give us another book.🤞🤞🤞I would love to hear it devolved further:)
And these sexy Narrators were Amazing! 😘

Birthday Presents Unzipped !

Unusual tale of a hot connection made between two 30yo+ men who are not looking for what they find on their mutual birthday.

The title Strip Me is too trite for this touching story, as it gives an impression of a just sex story, when in fact it's a deep and shocking passion subsequently explored between unhappy MCs. What sex there is is not overly graphic, but necessary to show their limited experiences as this is a first time with a male for them both.

The narration is excellent, enhancing the drama and passion within the story. As with many MM stories, both MCs are strong decisive Alphas, so we don't get senseless petty squabbles and sulks most MF books contain.

Both MCs have life baggage both mental and physical, which causes turbulence within a new relationship, but which is mostly resolved by the end.

I rate this story: 8.5/10

Will there be a part 2?

Purchased audio version simply because it was Sebastian York narrating a MM romance. Enjoyed story, felt it ended very abruptly, felt like there could be another story???
