Review:  Sam has recently found himself alone and on the streets after coming out to his family, He has one friend, Frankie that helped him when he first started selling his body to just eat and get shelter. Sam is a young pretty boy barely 18. Frankie is a bit bigger and though he sells himself also he is more into control of his life than Sam. He finds himself watching out for Sam, and inevitably falling in love with him.

This is a very heartfelt story of two young men doing what they have to just to survive.  Both want more. They want out of the life, and they want each other. Both characters are well done and very easy to relate to. Sam is too trusting and also too loose with his body, whereas Frankie is a more Dominate confident man. The two characters complement each other so well and fit together like jigsaw puzzle pieces. This is a beautiful romance as the two men find their way into each other’s bed and hearts.

I recommend this to anyone that likes rentboys, D/s, sweet romance, friends to lovers, and very hot mansex.
