If It Drives (Market Garden, #7)If It Drives

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The blurb…

If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it’s cheaper to rent it.

After driving James Harcourt, his wealthy banker boss, around for a year and a half, Cal isn’t surprised by much anymore. Not even James’s regular trips to Market Garden, London’s most elite gay brothel.

But when James leaves the Garden alone one night and turns to Cal instead, Cal’s floored. After crushing on his boss for ages, it’s his wet dream come true . . . until the awkward morning after. Cal still has a job to do, but he wants to offer more. Yet James doesn’t take him up on it; he keeps Cal at arm’s length and continues his chauffeured jaunts to Market Garden.

As Cal learns what James needs from the rentboys, he tries to fill that need himself. But there’s more to James’s penchant for rentboys than Cal realizes, and it may be one role that Cal can’t fill without overstepping his duty.

So what did I think?

I was privileged to receive an advance copy of this book for review and wow! I think this is my favourite of the series and I highly recommend you pre-order right now so you can get your hands on the book when it’s released in March!

Callum has been driving his boss, James, to the Market Garden and watched as James has brought home a number of the Market Garden rentboys. Cal has been watching James, seeing him in the lead up to his Market Garden visits and watching his reaction afterwards. Cal is pretty in tune with James’ emotional state and wants to take care of him. Sure, he lusts after James but there is something deeper, something that becomes more evident after a smoking hot one-night stand.

I loved to watch James and Cal together and the dominant/submissive coupling of a wealthy business man and his driver employee was intriguing. There is a real emotional side to the story as both men need to deal with the nature of their relationship outside the bedroom.

Unlike some of the other stories in the series, this one is full length and I loved it from beginning to end. I loved the characters, I loved the little glimpse of Nick and Spencer and that scene over the billiard table – hot!!!
