Book Blurb

High-end Market Garden rentboys Tristan and Jared have found their niche. Men are willing to pay good money to watch Tristan tease Jared, and the two of them seduce London’s elite with sex and power games.

Except Tristan is less and less interested in getting money out of the johns these days. He wants his partner in crime, and he wants the seduction to be real. But is Jared just in this for the pay?

When the rich john who started it all returns to Market Garden, the boys jump on the opportunity to service him—and each other—for a fresh pile of cash. The john isn’t the only one itching for a rematch, though. Jared’s been waiting for a chance to get back at Tristan for teasing him so mercilessly the first time.

And for a former stripper, revenge is a dish best served extra hot.

Book Review

Wow! I thought the first story in this series was hot, but this one possibly tops it. I think part of it is because I already know the characters (and remember them well), and part of it is because there's a little bit of role reversal in this sequel, with the previously submissive guy getting some deliciously sexy payback. Then again, it may just be the heat of the situation, the constant teasing, or the lip-lickingly scrumptious descriptions of all the lap dancing going on.

Tristan, the more experienced rent boy, took the lead last time, and created the "duo" of himself and Jared. They’ve been successfully tag-teaming clients, but Tristan wants more. I do believe he is falling for Jared, but doesn’t quite want to admit it. Of course, this makes staying objective very difficult, and any kind of "professional detachment" went out of the window long ago. I loved how he is struggling with his feelings, trying to keep control, but having to admit that this round is Jared's.

Jared has come a long way. I suspect it has something to do with working with Tristan, but there's also an innate sensuality about him that he has learned to use to his advantage. Add his love for mischief, and his ability as a classically trained dancer, and you can see why this is a very hot story. He may be getting paid for his performance with Tristan, but the fact that he reciprocates the man's need for something private, off the clock, so to speak, with no money changing hands, is quite encouraging.

Of course, the client still gets his moneys worth (and so did I), but the private whisperings and messages between Tristan and Jared added to this enjoyment for me. If you like your short stories super-hot, and if you're curious about Jared taking revenge on Tristan, you need to read this story. Like with the first one, just make sure you have some ice water and/or a fan handy as you read it.
