I'm afraid this book & I didn't really play nicely.

The premise seemed different, & it was, but I felt it was more the authors voice for me. I found it abundantly cheesy, with a layer of cringe.

The title, Strip Teaser, puts a certain image or two in the readers’ minds and sets up every preconceived notion out there of what goes on in that line of work. It’s a brilliant way for Ava Manello to lure readers to her text and then shatter some of the stereotypes once they get into the storyline. Manello uses her heroine, Sally, as our set of eyes – the one who goes into the trenches for eight weeks as The Naked Night’s men take their show on the road, and she comes out of the experience with ...more

Firstly, the title is deceiving! I imagined this short read was going to be about a female strip tease artist and certainly not a classy troupe of gorgeous men titillating an audience of women night in, night out to earn a living. This little book is huge! Even though it’s not my kind of read, I found it unputdownable, engrossing and it definitely opened my eyes regarding their profession. Yes, I say profession because what they do needs extrem
Wow, I loved this book and devoured it in one sitting!!!! I love the way Ava Manello writes; she has a natural talent as a writer and storyteller.

This book tells the story of a group of male strippers and, more importantly, who they are behind the scenes. Alex is not your typical stripper. He's not bulky but simply toned and he doesn't lust after the fans, unlike his rather more promiscuous co-performers. Alex is the strong, silent member of the group and preferring his own company is wrongly pr

“Strip Teaser” was a fun and quick read. I had expected more of a sex driven storyline but it was really actually very sweet and funny book.

Sally wants to be a serious journalist. So when her boss gives her the assignment to go on tour for 8 weeks with the Naked Nights male strip show, she is less than pleased! A self-proclaimed homebody and loner, she would much rather read a book than watch a sleazy strip show!

Alex never envisioned himself as a stripper. But there is not much work out there fo

This is an awesome story! It is not just a love story, it is a back stage look at a male strip tease show. I really liked the characters. Alex and Tiny became like friends to me as the story unfolded. The other guys on the team were not mentioned as much, but I look forward to their stories. The suspense that is included kept me on the edge of my seat! Be sure to give this book a try!

What an awesome surprise! I was so not expecting this story! And I LOVED it!

So when you read the blurb about a reporter and male strippers, you don’t expect a heartwarming and wonderful storyline! Don’t get me wrong, there is heat and squirming involved, but the story was brilliant too!

Alex and Sally, a most unlikely couple on the surface, are so well written you can’t help but root for them to get naked already! The tension between these two comes from a misunderstanding and a rule that no one

I read this book as a Beta reader for Ava Manello.

Whilst there are numerous books about stripes and even ones about male strippers. This is a book about hot, male British strippers!! They are not your average strippers, they are more like dancers, who just happen to shed some clothing as they go along. Ava uses music throughout the book during the stripping scenes and this I think helps set the mood as you groove along in your head to the moves the guys are doing in the book.

I was so thrilled to read this book.

I thought it was going to be full on raunchy, sex all the time at every chance they could get, but no. {not that I would have minded that] but it was refreshing to read a book on this subject but 'behind the scenes'.

Sally is a journalist in a small company, she wants to be picked up by the larger firms and 'make it big time' however, her boss has a job for her. She's shocked when he tells her, she keeps telling him she's a journalist not an interviewer.

Down girl, down!
Strip Teaser was a fun, sweet read, not raunchy as I was expecting. The Naked Nights are more of an upscale performance group of strippers, like the Australians from Thunder Down Under. They work hard and choreograph dance routines and take the show on the road. What a dream job to be a reporter with a chance to tour with 6 sexy strippers. Unfortunately, Sally isn't as thrilled with the idea as I am. She's a quiet loner who prefers to spend her evenings alone, soaking in the tub

“I can’t say that becoming a male stripper is really how I envisaged my career path when I was asked what I wanted to do by the school careers officer.”

The first half of this book was just great. A young journalist, trying to save her job with a newspaper (slowly going out of business like every other newspaper) takes on an assignment she really doesn't want. She agrees to go out on tour with a Chippendales like male strip act to write a feature story. She finds her stereotypes of what the guys would be like to be totally mistaken and that the amount of work and practice needed to make the group a success is phenomenal. And, she falls for one o ...more

I absolutely freaking loved this book. unlike a lot of books this one grabs you from the first page and you don't have to wait till your 3 chapters in before it gets interesting.
The story is brilliantly written, and you can feel the chemistry with the characters bouncing of the pages.

This Ava's first solo book and what a book it is. be prepared to have your pulses racing and need a really cold shower after you finished it. You will love alex and the Naked Nights .

Sally, a journalist is given an assignment to go on tour for 8 weeks with a group of male strippers. Now, Sally came across as a bit of a prude at times, but i've got to admit i did come to love her. This book is filled with great characters and some very funny moments. Although this book isn't filled with non stop sex, Ava Manello does an absolutely brilliant job of building the sexual tension and chemistry between Sally and Alex, to the point you're just willing them to get it on.

Strip teaser is my first experience by Ava Manello and what a tease it is, definitely not what expected and absolutely fantastic in audible version.

Queue Sally a journalist who just wants to be taken seriously but her boss decides her next assignment is to go on tour for 8 weeks with the Naked Nights Strip show, she is less than amused to think she will need to be with these men constantly for the next 8 weeks.

Hahahaaa I really, really loved this book. This was perfect light entertainment with a topping of sexy to boot. What more can a girl ask for – eh? ;-)

Now seriously, Strip Teaser wasn’t actually what I was expecting at all. It was sooo much better than what I was expecting! I loved Sally, she was ‘normal’ a bit prudish and had that annoying habit like the masses of the rest of the population of labelling something without ever really knowing anything about it.

Well this was an unusual take on a story following a group of strippers!

Firstly I have to explain that I very rarely read all the blurb on a book. I`m shallow....I look at the cover and if it's got a semi naked person on it them I'll read it cos chances are its going to be a hot read lol. The title also drew me in!

This book is a funny, sweet, and sexy read… This is a girls dream come true, spending eight weeks with gorgeous guys who dance and strip for a living. The Naked Nights group is an upscale group of strippers who work very hard to put on a great show for their followers.

Sally has just been given a tough choice. She must give up the reporting assignment she has been working on to go on the road for 8 weeks with a team of “dancers”. Dancers, what a joke. They are a bunch of muscle head stripers and she has to do this fluff piece for the paper because of the huge advertising account that will happen when this feature is written. These days, advertising is the only thing keeping the paper afloat. If she doesn’t take the reporting job, she is out of work.

Sally considers herself to be a serious investigative reporter so being asked to go on tour with a group of male strippers is a massive step down for her. With great reluctance she agrees and goes expecting the worse of the men of Naked Nights. What she quickly realises is that their act is just that, an act. While a couple of the group relish the attention it brings them and takes advantage of it, they are all a great bunch of guys. Sally finds herself spending a lot of her time with Tiny and A ...more

Sally is a reporter and given the assignment of joining naked nights on their eight week tour… for most women the chance to spend up close and personal time with hot male strippers for eight weeks would be heaven but Sally isn’t most women… She is a shy, quiet, reserved book worm so spending eight weeks stuck on a mini bus with dirty, raunchy strippers is hell on earth…

Strip Teaser took me for a raunchy ride! This is the second book I've read by Ava Manello. The first I found I just didn't like her writing nor did I like the flow of that book. This one felt like I was reading a book by a completely different author. I don't know what happened, but I'm so happy with how well written this book is versus her other book.

This book was sweet, full of humor, sexy moments, dirty talk, laugh out loud moments, male strippers that could rival the Thunder from Down Under, one tour bus with too much testosterone, and one reporter who is determined to keep her job no matter what she has to do.

This is Sally and Alex's story. Sally is a reporter and she has a new job assignment that has to do and her job depends on it. When Sally is assigned to tour with a 6 male traveling strip show, she is not happy though
