Strip Back brings you back to how the Naked Night’s began. This is Eric’s story. Back when life was a little less polished, and a whole lot harder.
Before there was Strip Teaser, there was Eric; manager and founder of the Naked Night’s male stripper troupe.
You wouldn’t think you’d be past it at 34, but that’s the position Eric found himself in, as well as newly single after finding his girlfriend in a compromising position.
Setting up the Naked Night’s wasn’t easy, it wasn’t fun, and it wasn’t without sleaze, but somehow he did it.
Strip Back is a humorous and steamy tale of one man’s journey to fulfill a dream. Not all male strippers are the same.
Stripped Back, Naked Nights #0.5 by Ava Manello was very eye opening, even though I am a lover of the naked flesh I have to admit that I have never been to see a strip show myself, but by reading this novel I was able to easily see within my mind the hot sweaty sweetness of the male sculptured body withing to the sounds of a hypnotic tune – Slowly taking each strip of clothing off, allowing you glimpses of the rock hard surprises beneath each item………… mmmmm….. Intimately image inspiring!
Within the novel we meet Eric, a man who is unhappy in his current job, not because he is a stripper but because he believes that the routines they perform each night are tacky. He worries that he because he is getting older that his days are numbered as a sex symbol even though he works out to his limit, ensuring his body is always in tiptop condition. One day as he arrives at work for the group practice the main boss tells him because he is getting older he is taking him out of the spotlight and replacing him with a younger man. The man in question has no skills and cannot dance to save his life, all he is capable of doing is swinging is length around at the women who come to watch. Eric hates this tacky and sleazy attempt at a performance, he believes this is not what being a stripper is about and does not want to be pushed to the back rows as a backing dancer for that unbelieveable tat. So he quits, upon leaving the hall at the back he finds his girlfriend giving one of the younger guys a blowjob, spouting that she only wanted to date a star! Dropping her he leaves with ideas of starting his own group, one that has class.
Starting his own group is actually a little harder than he thinks and after a week of putting ideas together he decides to take the plunge and invest his saving, time and well everything into creating a classier, up market group of strippers….But he needs to find others to make this work, putting an ad into the local paper he receives a better response than he thought he would with even one of his old troupe mates, Tiny, coming to him to ask him if he is serious about his ideas and once he convinces him he is and what they can do together he manages to get him on board. Tiny is someone he has relied upon before and has shared a good working and social relationship, so their friendship blooms as they forge ahead to create the right group. The ad is answered by lots of different men, some with some skills, others with none at all but in it all they manage to find a few gems; Guido, Jackal, Alex, Rick & Jonny.
