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!!!

Payoff (Market Garden, #6)Payoff by L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The blurb…

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!
