Payoff by L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Tristan and Jared have got it made. When they aren’t raking in the cash together at Market Garden, they’re burning up their own sheets and getting closer by the day. But something isn’t right. Tristan’s on edge, and Jared doesn’t understand why.
Before they can hash things out, their services are requested by none other than Rolex. And Rolex doesn’t just want to be a bystander this time. He wants Jared while Tristan watches, and he’s more than willing to pay for it.
But Tristan’s reached a breaking point, and even that huge wad of cash might not be enough to keep tonight’s arrangement from crashing and burning.
So what did I think?
This review will have spoilers if you haven’t read the series yet! But if you haven’t read the series yet, get to it!
Market Garden is a club in London with an exclusive clientele with very hot and sexy rent boys to service their every need. The series has focused on different couples – some short stories that are hot and sexy, some longer stories, some focused on new characters and some giving us more of the characters we love.
Tristan and Jared are the original rentboys. In the first book, Quid Pro Quo, Jared has a crush on Tristan. Rolex (their client) requests to see them together making Jared’s dreams come true – heaps of sexual tension and passion! In the second book, Take It Off, it’s Tristan who can’t stop thinking of Jared. It’s hot and sexy with Jared in control and ends with Tristan and Jared acknowledging their interest in each other outside of Market Garden.
Books 3 (If It Flies) and 4 (If It Fornicates) focus on Nick and Spencer’s story while book 5 (Capture & Surrender) is about Frank and Stefan.
Payoff, the sixth book in the series, takes us back to Tristan and Jared. With a similar feel to the first books, it’s hot and sexy and short but manages to pack in a lot in those pages. Rolex returns but this time his request is something that Tristan finds really difficult to handle. Rolex wants Tristan to watch while he plays with Jared.
Filled with tension – an interesting combination of emotional and sexual tension – things finally come to a climax for these boys as they come to terms with how to balance working together and being together.
Hot and satisfying!
