Publisher's Summary

A ripped, transgender construction worker and a tweed-wearing, tortoise-shell-cozy-knitting bear of a professor... Somebody's getting stripped.

The last place I expected to run into my childhood camp crush was at the local university, looking all kinds of cute in a tweed jacket with a nervous blush. I’ve always had a bit of a thing for the nerdy professor type.

Demetri says he doesn’t date. I want to believe that it’s true and not that he’s not interested in a transgender man like me. If all he can offer me is friendship, I’m more than happy to take it.

Coy looks during sweaty workouts, rainy nights on his couch watching him knit shell cozies for his pet tortoise... I’m falling for him, whether I want to or not. 

Can I break down his walls and prove to him that he can trust me with his heart? And can I trust him with mine?

Stripped is a swoony, steamy MM romance that is the sixth book in the Four Bears Construction Series. It can be listened to as a stand-alone, but you won’t want to miss these bear’s antics. This series does not contain any shifters, only the other kind of bears.

Excellent positive romance about a transgender man and a cuddly gay guy!

More Four Bears love and fun! Muscly trans man Miller has a weak spot for cuddly academic bears like Demetri - if only Demetri felt confident enough in his own skin to trust Miller’s intentions. This was a great return to form after the previous book, Stud. Stripped has two loveable main characters and a strong message about the acceptance of self and others. KM Neuhold has sensitively and powerfully portrayed some of the body issues faced by trans and gay people. There are plenty of the usual Four Bear sweet and sexy moments and a tantalising peak into the main players of the final book, Drilled. Tim Paige (as Miller) and Liam DiCosimo (as Demetri) produced another engaging and fun dual POV audio narration!

This story is so amazingly sweet that I just couldn't get enough of it. Miller and Demetri are just so sweet! They are just meant for each other and I just love it. Liam DiCosimo and Tim Paige also does an amazing job with this narration. I am pulled even mo re into this story and fall in love with these characters. I absolutely love it so much!

Such a great book

I love this book. I loved it the first time I read it and I enjoyed listening to it as well. This isn’t a reflection on the author at all, but I really did not care for Liam’s narration here. I think Tim should have done the whole thing. Regardless I still loved listening and will again.

Swoon worthy!

Miller works for the Four Bears Construction Company. He is possibly the sweetest trans gender man that I’ve ever read about or listened to, and he felt so real to me. Demetri is a history professor, sweet in his own right and soft in all the right places. Seriously loved their romance!! I loved that Miller crushed on Demetri in middle school, sooo sweet!! The dual narration is sooo good!! Tim Paige and Liam DiCosimo did a great job!!

IN LOVE. AMAZING AUDIO AND THE BEST OF THE BEARS

Okay. This is taking my top favorite read from KM Neuhold. I can’t believe how sweet the story is. How amazing these characters are and how well they are written. I believe that this is incredibly well written with the struggles the characters have had in the past and present. How they come together as friends and it turns in to so much more. Miller is absolutely sweet and sexy. Sooo hot. He’s my new favorite MC from this series and now I cannot wait for the next in the series. I just have to say this book stole my Heart and I want a Miller in my life… like GAH!!!

Worth the wait!

Throughout the last half of the book, the song, "So in Love With You," played in my head. It's a delightful love story.

fantastic narration and a really great story

4.5 stars

This was super sweet and fun and a little funny too. I still like Caulky, Nailed and screwed a little bit more than this which is the only reason I left off half a star, but this was great. This features a MC who is FTM, who self identifies as suffering dysphoria and also has to deal with his ADHD which seem to be pretty extreme considering how quickly he gets distracted. I myself can't speak to the accuracy of these portrayals but I I enjoyed this characters story.

I am looking forward to the next book but it will be the last and that is bittersweet. I don't want to leave this world.

The narration did a great job with the different characters voices and expressing the emotions and bringing the story to life.

One of the Best Books I've Ever Read

Easily one of the best books I've ever read and my favorite in this amazing series. Love the character development, the uncertainty, the nerd factor, and realistic feel of this like it could actually happen because it's not far fetched. Also love the mention of Austin Wolf as he is a favorite of mine. Narration is on point. Highly recommend!

Sweet and heartwarming

Another one of great books by Kyleen. I loved listening and party reading it. It's nice to read books about people being accepted for who their are and not something they never can be.
Can't wait for the next book. ❤️

Excellent story - almost as good as Screwed

This whole series is terrific, but this installment is a close second to Screwed, Ollie and Daniel’s story. Like Screwed, this sweet romance between body-conscious Demetri and Four Bears new joiner Miller is utterly captivating and addicting. It’s hot, happy, heartwarming, and of course has a solid, swoony HEA … and it’s all rolled into one really well-written story.

I absolutely adore Ollie and Daniel from Screwed (especially sweet Ollie), but unexpectedly, Miller and Demetri rival them. I loved Miller from the outset and his generous, non-judgmental, totally authentic, comfortable in his body attitude sealed the deal. Demetri struggles with his self-image because he’s not model perfect and because his ex destroyed his self-confidence. It takes time for him to truly believe and accept that Miller (who is totally hot and looks like a male model) could love him exactly as he is. And c’mon … Demetri knits little outfits for his best friend, his tortoise Mars, and it is hysterical and cute and very very sweet. Who knew that fawning over a tortoise in a cosy would do it for me. 😆❤️ 🐢 Even if you haven’t read the other books in the series (although I highly recommend you do), read this one. It’s so good.

Liam DiCosimo and Tim Paige continue their narration of the series and this is another well-done addition. I read the book first and then read and listened to it and the audio definitely augments what is already a great story all on its own. Highly recommend.

Awesome book!

Story: Fun, lighthearted read with great MCs and the best crew in the world as background. I love the author’s sense of humor and all the funny bits!
Also, approach to the transgender MC and the issue at large was top notch writing.
Narration: great performance! Loved everything about it!

3.5 stars

Nice sweet story, and I think it addressed the trans element well with positive representation (personal body acceptance and contentment, good family relationships, conversations when starting out a new relationship etc). The only reason for the lower rating is the world and characters aren’t as filled out as they could be to give that richer depth.

Sweet, funny and sexy

OK. This is my new favourite in the series. It's as sweet and pure as it is sexy and funny.

There are just as many laugh out loud moments (keep a tight hold on your junk gentlemen!) as there are 'ahhh!' 😍 ones.

The story is uplifting whilst still having the usual sexy vibe and it's always fun getting to know the guys better.

Loved it!
