For the past six months, Jared’s been selling sex at Market Garden, a London club that caters to the better-off. But business is slow in the run-up to Christmas, when businessmen and bankers are too busy bickering over bonuses to rent themselves a little high-class action.
Though Jared’s wallet finds the downtime unnerving, the rest of him rather enjoys the opportunity it gives him to admire Tristan, an old hand in the club whose reputation usually sees him well-booked. Jared has been crushing on Tristan for months — he’s no more immune to Tristan’s cockiness and confidence than the johns, and those are just Tristan’s inner qualities.
Just as Jared’s about to chat Tristan up, a businessman asks for something a little different: he wants to book them both. They agree — and Jared finds himself going from crush to mind-bending lust as he’s made the pawn in a sexual power game. Tristan shows him how a pro handles a john while delivering the top-shelf sex for which the Market Garden is so rightly renowned.
“I’m curious to find out if everything I’ve heard about you through the grapevine is true.”
The Market Garden is a high-class club in London frequented by the wealthy and staffed by a stable of young men who are paid very well to please their clients and cater to their kinks.
Jared is a college student and new employee at Market Garden who’s very much attracted to the popular and in-demand Tristan, though he’s not really sure Tristan feels the same way.
An American with a pocket full of cash wants Jared and Tristan together. The negotiations between client and prostitutes were fun, erotic, and extremely torturous for Jared, who would do this even if there were no money involved. I very much enjoyed how all three men took things slowly, ramping up the tension, and going all out to please their client and each other.
Though this is a short story at just 36 pages, it is well crafted, extremely hot, and it is complete. But why stop here? You’ll want to find out if Jared and Tristan fall in love, get to know Nick and Spencer, and meet the Market Garden’s owner.
This is a wonderful start to a terrific series.
