Overview: The Guys Next Door is not a strip club. It’s an all-male exotic dance club . . . And, yes, there is a difference.
Audrey Bell is the last person who should take guardianship of two orphaned teenagers, and Olivia and Noah have every intention of making that clear. After an accident that killed their parents, seventeen-year-old Olivia and her bitter kid brother wind up under the watch of their father’s young, erratic sister. Audrey has never experienced children of her own. To top it off, she lives in a cramped apartment downtown, has a fetish for late nights and strawberry daiquiris, and is the proud owner of The Guy’s Next Door, a popular dance club in the heart of Seattle…an all-male dance club.
Within days, two very different worlds collide. Olivia, Noah, and Audrey find themselves in a whirlwind of emotion as they attempt to adjust to this new lifestyle. The phrase normal no longer applies as the sibling’s meet and bond with four unique new people; an outspoken Puerto Rican bartender named Marisol and three hunky and adorable men—the diva, the heartbreaker, and the scholar—all of them so very different from what they portray on stage.
Over time, with the help and support of her new spunky friend Emma and their history teacher Jake Devereaux (who is quickly and accidentally falling for Audrey), Olivia allows herself to embrace happiness again as this crazy world welcomes her in. But when Child Protective Services catches wind of the situation, the court questions the strange life that Audrey is providing for the siblings, and just like that Olivia and Noah’s stable life is derailed . . . again.
