Blurb: Victor Dimir moved to America with his traditional Romanian parents when he was just a child. His Romani parents taught him their traditions and how to be a shrewd business man, but it was the attention of a classmate at school that taught teenage Victor about his sexuality. When he came out to his parents he knew it would be difficult for them to understand, but he never expected them to disown him.
Andrew Jones grew up with a single mom and his grandmother teaching him about life, he had an absentee father at best. The only thing the man ever did for Andy that stuck was buy him a camera for his thirteenth birthday. When Andrew went off to college on a scholarship to study photo journalism, he wound up falling in love with his Romanian roommate.
They became inseparable and wound up starting their own business together: a gay porn website where people could go and watch romantic gay porn instead of the rough and tough, or wham bam thank you man crap that was flooding the internet at that time. After ten years together they were still perfectly happy, not realizing something was missing, until they met a broken young man who needed a family.
Matthew Carlson was homeless, jobless and broken. At sixteen he ran away from home after being brutally assaulted by several young men that he thought were his friends, and then being told he brought it on himself for being gay by his parents. Matthew has done a lot of things these last few years just to get by. When he finds the flyer for All Cocks, he decides to call and see where it leads. What has he got to lose?
Matthew has deep-rooted scars that aren’t visible on the outside to most. But when he walks into All Cocks, both Victor and Andrew can see the darkness in his eyes; they also see him. Can three men that did not know they needed each other get past the stigma of society to find a place of happiness, together?

Review: Fame and Fortune is a very sweet romance between three loving men. Though Victor and Andrew have been partners for ten years, they both felt something for the sweet angelic looking boy Mattie when he showed up for a job. Both men could tell he was broken and not ready for porn shoots. When Mattie finally insists they set him up, and none of them was prepared for Mattie’s reaction. Now Mattie has to tell Victor and Andrew about his past abuse.
I must warn you if you’re susceptible to triggers, there are back flashes of gang rape and date rape drugs. I will say That TM handled it with finesse, and the story has a lot of light moments and sensual loving sex to soften the harsh scenes.
I loved all the characters and the main storyline of the coming to term with the change in their relationship.
I will say that the story begins moving fast and skipping quickly through years. I would have liked to have seen more of the things that happened than short paragraphs telling us about them. There were a few places where the author told us of things that happened between other characters from the first book) that I personally felt should have been left out and this book the first.
Now having said that; I still loved this story and all of these men and cannot wait for the next book–Jon and Kory–and all the others. (Yes I read all the small print at the end that tells what’s coming soon!
I highly recommend this if you like gay new adult romance, angst, threesomes, ménage, hot man-sex and all over fun, sexy romance!
