Got two hundred and fifty dollars for an hour of fun? Then say hello to Charlie, a hot little rentboy working his way through an engineering degree on his back. He’s got shaggy blond hair that’s great to hang on to while you fuck him from behind, and sweet innocent blue eyes that look very enticing when he gazes up at you with your cock in his mouth. That is, until he’s hired by innocent rich boy John Middleton, head of Middleton Communication. John is so far in the closet he could find Narnia. But when John and Charlie get together for an explosive weekend of sex, everything goes to hell.

John hires Chalie, the rentboy, for a weekend. They meet, have amazing sex, pretend to be dating, and get to know each other. But somehow, in the back of Charlie's mind, he's thinking, "This is not quite right...."
I absolutely loved the beginning and Charlie's voice in the story. He makes light of his job as a rentboy and make funny commentaries about his customers. Then he meets John, who is a totally unexpected and out of the norm customer for Charlie. John doesn't seem the type to hire a rentboy and so they are well matched. They get together for the weekend, spend time with each other, and spend time dodging reporters. These characters seem real and their emotions are alive and bleeds through the pages.
I love that the story is well-rounded. All the hints and the little nagging voice inside of Charlie's head are like clues to solving this charming and too perfect mystery. Everything ties together neatly and all the events are well planned, well written, and relevant. When "shit hits the fan," John finds a way to make up to Charlie and for them to be together as a couple. The HEA for them is perfect and heart warming.
This is a charming novella with a totally unexpected twist in the story. I would definitely recommend this for all M/M fans and check out more books from this author.
