My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Andy Finnegan is a six foot three brown-haired, blue-eyed, Mack f*cking truck. A former marine who spends his nights dancing for your entertainment, he has a dark side hiding beneath the beautiful veneer. Sweet little Stefan is awestruck by the big, gorgeous dancer with the rock hard abs and the lonely eyes. Determined to see what lurks behind the perfect surface, he gets a little more than he bargained for.
So what did I think? Andy is a big and strong ex-marine who dances to support himself while he dreams of earning more by breaking into porn. Broken and sad and only existing, not living his life. He wasn’t an easy character to like, not until his story came to light and his interactions with Stefan, showed him for the man he truly is inside. This is a story of how one man sees himself a monster…”He should save this boy from the darkness in him.” and of the quiet man who shows him that there is hope. This is a short story – short but sexy with a nice message – and I always have a soft spot for a broken man getting his second chance.
A copy of this book was provided by the author in return for my honest review.
Now for some interesting stuff!
JP Barnaby was interviewed recently on USA today. Below is a snippet of the interview (click here for full interview).
“The Working Boys series came about as the result of a few conversations with friends in the industry about how they’re represented in fiction. For example, rentboys are generally portrayed as desperate, drug-addicted, or lacking other skills needed to succeed in life. With the boys I’ve met, that simply isn’t true. Charlie, Rentboy is based, in part, on real New York rentboy Eli Lewis and conversations we’ve had about his life. Andy, Go-Go Boy is loosely based on former Marine and Falcon exclusive Ryan Rose. These books are a realistic glimpse into the world of gay sex workers from their perspective.”
So if you love the cover of Andy, Go-Go Boy (like I do!), definitely check out some more of Ryan Rose on Pinterest.
