Blurb: Acerbic twenty-something Andy is living the dream in London. Too bad he’s totally broke. The way to getting paid is getting laid — or at least that’s what he discovers when his friend Michelle introduces him to her somewhat-highly-paid and definitely not glamorous world of call girls and boys. Told with frankness and biting humor, Andy sleeps his way through London: for the sex, the glory, and the rent money.

Review: This is a point of view of prostitution that we don’t see very often, someone willingly turning to selling their bodies for the extra cash. Andy is a plain down to earth lad who is struggling to make ends meet (‘cause he spends it on video games).   He does a favor for a friend (and for the hundred quid) which then leads to him having more offers to help out.

This is a down to earth view of Andy’s life from Andy’s POV.  It tells the story of how he got into the business, what he thinks of it and also how he develops as a person due to it. It also tells of his unrequited love, his love of sex, his friendships, the highlights and lowlights of his punters and the ups and downs of his life.

There is plenty of sex but, and I was surprised by this because of the title, it’s only sex scenes that have some sort of meaning to Andy.  Whether it’s a bad experience or a good one, there’s something about it that affected Andy in some way. There were a few times that the wording slipped but otherwise this was very well written.

I’d recommend this to those who like dirty sex and getting a different POV of what life as a male prostitute is like.
