Blurb: Sex + money shouldn’t = love, but since when does the heart follow any laws but its own?
Recent college graduate and mathematical genius Skye McCord is determined that this summer he’s going to do something he’s always wanted to try—living. And, as a scientist, he’s not leaving anything to chance. He’s got a new job in Las Vegas, a signing bonus burning a hole in his pocket, and what else does a brainy geek spend his money on but an education? But this time, it’s one of a carnal variety.
Liam Maddox isn’t your ordinary gay male escort—he’s actually gay, and he really loves his job. Especially when he meets his newest client. Skye’s cute and awkward and sort of odd, and when he informs Liam that he wants to hire him to teach him everything about being gay, well…Liam’s too intrigued to say “no.”
Except what starts as lighthearted lessons in sex and seduction quickly becomes more as Liam taps into a submissive side of Skye the young man never knew he had. Also, Liam’s never been this drawn to anyone before, and he’s beginning to wonder if he can walk away when their time is up. Or does happily-ever-after exist for someone like Liam with someone like Skye?
Review: It started fun, moved on to hot, escalated to super-hot, went on to freaking intense and made the big BAM with sweet declaration of love.
Dear Lord, no matter the stereotype and cliché plot of client rents boy, client falls in love with said rent-boy, rent-boy falls in love with client and so on, this book was still very, no extremely hot. You can practically inhale it in one go so fast it takes your breath away. A very fun plot, utterly enjoyable, funny characters in addition to smoldering hot and an easy ride of every sexual fantasy on the book, this story is that lighthearted kind you want when things are a bit gloomy.
Skye was such an adorable character and his involuntary reactions were funny to the point of tears. I loved him. Of course, the fact that he is a virgin when this story begins, hence the need for a pro, makes me doubt those feelings he has for Liam. I mean the first man he’s ever been with and he falls in love… of course he does. But although it’s not a very credible plot I couldn’t care less, I enjoyed it immensely.
As for Liam, well, damn. I just can’t resist a Dom that has a soft spot for “bratty subs.” He was, dear Lord, fantastic. The allure of that character is frightening indeed. And you know, the man who lost his job and went on escorting and then fell in love with his client, well, irresistible isn’t it?
Now the story is not extremely difficult here, there is not much of a plot either as the very notion behind it was that Skye went to Liam in order to learn how to have sex and therefore the scenes that follow are sex here and sex there and sex everywhere. And that’s the point and the purpose of this entire book. It reminds me of If It Flies which even if it’s newer in publication I managed to read first. There are too many similarities between the two.
So if you are in need of a light, sexy, and erotic read, full of guilty pleasures and a slight take on Dom/sub relations then you’ll probably enjoy this book a lot. I surely did. J
