This book was provided from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This short - almost too short - is hot and steamy! It's the 2nd book in The Market Garden series about a London club that caters to the high-end customers with M-M tastes. And it's co-authored by Aleksandr Voinov, one of my favorite authors in the GBLT genre and co-author of my very favorite series in the genre, Special Forces.
This 2nd book picks up not long after the 1st book Quid Pro Quo ends. Jared and Tristan have now become a pair, their success with Mr. Rolex paving the way to offering something different to the high-end clientele. When Mr. Rolex returns and picks up the pair of "rent boys" again, though, we see a change in Jared.
In Quid Pro Quo, Jared was a bit shy and insecure. He was in awe of and had a major crush on Tristan, who was the "hottie" with loads of confidence. Tristan negotiated big money for their last pairing for Mr. Rolex. But in Take It Off, we see Jared taking the lead - he's the assured one, negotiating the scene.
Tristan is the insecure one of the pair, unsure whether Jared really feels anything for him (Tristan) or if it's just part of the job. Tristan is realizing that his feelings for Jared extend beyond their business partnership.
The book doesn't disappoint! I'd love to learn more about Mr. Rolex... such an intriguing guy! And I want more of this series!
I'd just like to see all The Market Garden shorts rolled up into one book - maybe even an ebook where the new installments come out as their published. So the integrity of the short stories remains, but the readers pay one price and are assured that they'll get each new installment.
