This is the first book in the Working Boys series.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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
So what did I think?
“Sure, sounded like an easy weekend and definitely worth my time. At least, that’s what I thought – until he f***ed up my life.”
Okay, it’s pretty obvious from the title that this book is about “Charlie” who is a rentboy. And yes, the plot does sound a little familiar as the struggling student/rentboy Charlie takes on a weekend engagement with John, corporate millionaire. But the story has a uniqueness all it’s own. This story has a lovely focus on the emotions of the two men and a surprising ending. From the first pages I thought I would know the outcome of the story but it wasn’t what I expected.
The highlight of the story was the unique insight provided into each character and the way their true nature was revealed as the story progressed. I particularly liked the wonderful portrayal of Charlie and the way he is brought to life. At the start of the book he is a focused and confident young man, not letting his circumstances put an education and career out of his reach. He is a smooth talking rentboy, out to play the ‘game’ and to secure return business. At the same time we meet the corporate rich boy, John, who even though he heads up a large company, is inexperienced, sexually shy and emotional.
However, when the ‘event’ happens, suddenly we see an almost role reversal as “Charlie” reveals his true self. We see the young student not the rentboy, and his real desires in life. He just wants a solid career and to make his mother happy. John however steps up to the plate, taking responsibility and making decisions to manage the situation.
I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the sex, the plot and the ending!
