Publisher's Summary

Phoenix - I never intended to become a stripper.

Two years ago, I was in Nashville chasing the songwriter dream. Sleepless nights between day jobs were spent writing rock ballads and trying to make a name for myself.

That all changed with one phone call that forced me to return to Atlanta. Needing consistent income to pay the mountain of debt I'd come home to, I traded stripping my soul for stripping my clothes.

Then Archer West comes crashing into my VIP room, tempting me to break all of my rules.

I want him - bad.

What I don't count on is finding him living right next door for the summer. Inexperienced and with a creative drive that rivals my own, he stirs the lyrics in me once again. Now I crave more than his body. Archer West has quickly become my unexpected muse.

Contains mature themes.

Narrator saves this

The premise of falling for a stripper is hardly new, but it’s one I like, so I gave it a shot. The writing is okay, but the dialog is pretty cheesy in a lot of places. If I’d been reading the print version, I likely wouldn’t have finished.

The characters are quite likable, but the plot went haywire immediately. It makes perfect sense that a cute, shy college student would fall head-over-heels for a handsome stripper, but there’s zero explanation for the converse. Why does a gorgeous, confident stripper fall so fast and so hard for a cute college boy that he breaks all his own rules and dry-humps him during a lap dance the first time he sees him? A baffling question for which we’re never given a real answer.

The intimate scenes are, surprisingly, way less cheesy than a lot of the book. Pretty hot and a lot of them, so there’s that going for it.

Iggy Toma’s narration made me keep listening to this. His ability to create depth and emotion with his voice is too-notch, and he makes even the cheesy listenable. Phoenix’s voice is super-sexy and almost makes the whole thing worth a listen all on its own.

Intriguing Story

This is my first book by this author and I must say I’m impressed. Kept my attention from beginning to end. I have heard Iggy Toma narrate previous books and am a fan, I feel the narration of this book is exceptional. I hope Baylin Crow releases more audiobooks. Highly recommend!

SPOILER ALERT

the main conflict in this is soo stupid. toxic monogamy bs. dont date a stripper if you cant handle dating a stripper 🙄🙄🙄 and ignoring someone instead of talking to them or at the very least telling them you need time is so immature. the conflict just didnt make sense and seemed out of character

Awesome narration!!!

Iggy Toma is a master at narration. I loved his voice for Phoenix. It is just the sexiest sound! I can’t get enough. Phoenix is a stripper at a club that Archer walks into on his birthday. The two lock eyes and it’s lust at first sight. I liked how the two got together right away, but I did feel that the relationship was missing more storyline. I wonder why Archer never goes to just watch him dance? Or that either of their jobs don’t come with more! But overall a good story.

Sweet lovely romance

I loved both characters and the delivery by the narrator. Plus it’s a tribute to the creative muse. I will look for others by this author.

It will give you the happy feels

Stripped Love is book one in the Guys Next Door series.

This is my first time reading Baylin and I'm so glad I started with this book. Its exactly what I expected it to be and what I needed.

Its a low angst story of finding yourself and falling in love. It will give you the happy feels. I really enjoyed these characters and I look forward to reading more in this series.

If you're an audiophile like me I highly recommend the audio narrated by one of my faves Iggy Toma. He's fantastic at bringing a story to life!
