    First if all this is a pretty sweet, prostitute client story and it s very nicely written No problems there at all BG Thomas has a very easy writing style which I like Basically, it s the story of Red real name Leslie, a beautiful, very desirable high class escort who is hired by Kirk, a slightly overweight, normal everyday nice guy, who has been in lust with Red ever since he first saw him on the arm of Jeremy a rich friend, at the ballet one time Since then he s been obsessed with the gor First if all this is a pretty sweet, prostitute client story and it s very nicely written No problems there at all BG Thomas has a very easy writing style which I like Basically, it s the story of Red real name Leslie, a beautiful, very desirable high class escort who is hired by Kirk, a slightly overweight, normal everyday nice guy, who has been in lust with Red ever since he first saw him on the arm of Jeremy a rich friend, at the ballet one time Since then he s been obsessed with the gorgeous redhead and having been left a decent amount of money from his newly deceased, much loved mum, who told him before she passed away, to just blow it on something that would just make him happy he decides to use it to hire Red so he can at least be with him once.What he doesn t realise is that Red Leslie hadn t always been the beautiful guy Once upon a time he was the misunderstood gay fat kid who after a disappointment in love and family, took the plunge, lost weight, got discovered by another escort, Matthew, who taught him all he knewand Bob s your uncle, Fanny s your Aunthe s suddenly a most sought after highly paid, expensive to hire escort and he s making lots of money.In a slightly back to front, Pretty Womanesque way they begin a relationship that steps outside the bonds of client and male prostitute but of course there s the problem of Red still carrying on in the profession, Kirk s worries that he s not special enough for Red, and Reds past, that he keeps to himself because even though he s drawn to the nice guy, he s not sure exactly what he and Kirk are really doing together unsure that he should be pursuing a relationship while he s still servicing clients.Unfortunately as sweetly romantic and well written as this was, I did struggle to find that special connection and chemistry between the two of them It just never really sparked for me There were a few times when the constant adoration from an awe struck besotted Kirk for the beautiful prostitute felt a little too much like fan worship at the beginning, and the constant introduction of how gorgeous Red was and how ordinary and slightly chubby Kirk appeared, began to pall a bit I got that it s all part of the plot, but I just couldn t get into that mind set at all They re likable characters but I never really felt that I had a proper handle on either Red or Kirk, especially Kirk because I had a bit of trouble pigeonholing him, and by that I mean I came away feeling like I didn t fully get to know him that well, even after he got his HEA.Link to rest of review SINFULLYAddicted To All Male Romance Formerly

    Wow Let me repeat that Wow I simply adored this book On one level, it is an amazing character study of two men, who each think they are utterly unattractive, only to learn that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder But it is also a moving love story, one with a message of hope for everyone who thinks nobody will ever like them for who they really are And the way it is written utterly charmed me B.G Thomas takes the truth of what it is like to be a male escort and focuses on the emot Wow Let me repeat that Wow I simply adored this book On one level, it is an amazing character study of two men, who each think they are utterly unattractive, only to learn that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder But it is also a moving love story, one with a message of hope for everyone who thinks nobody will ever like them for who they really are And the way it is written utterly charmed me B.G Thomas takes the truth of what it is like to be a male escort and focuses on the emotional implications instead of the physical side of the job Yes, on the surface this book is very sweet and romantic, but the underlying transformation Red goes through and the realization of what has stopped him from being Leslie, i.e., himself, completely pulled me in.Red is a very attractive, extremely successful male escort He likes the finer things in life, and is focused on making the most of his youth while he still has it Red is a consummate professional, and has learned from the best It s all money, and he needs to build a nest egg, provide for is future, and make sure he never goes back to being poor and misunderstood That is until he meets Kirk Kirk isn t attractive the way most people would define it He looks slightly nerdy, he is just a little overweight, and his job as an accountant and financial adviser isn t exactly rip roaring exciting But he is solid, and he is real, and he speaks to something inside Red that he has hidden for years.One appointment with Red leads to , and very gradually, over the course of six months, Red changes The shell he has built around himself crumbles and, step by step, Leslie emerges It was fascinating to watch little glimpses of the man underneath the veneer at first, only to seeandrevealed as the story progresses It s a gradual process, and very well done Slow enough to fool Red into not even knowing what is happening until his transformation is complete And even then the learning and surprises don t stop as Leslie learns to deal with his past.If you like character driven stories with men who feel so real you expect them to jump off the pages at any moment, if you want to read about characters who grow and learn right before your eyes, and if you re looking for a read that is sweet and romantic, yet a deeply meaningful and an emotional journey at the same time, then you will probably like this novella as much as I do I adore it, and know I will read it again and again because there are lots of layers to it, and I am not sure just one reading has revealed them all I think it is one of those books that will allow me to discover something new every time I read it Truly amazing NOTE This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews

    To me, a big part of this short 90 page read is about self sacrifice and keeping a promise to a very dear, recently departed motherShe told me that she wanted me to spend her money and there was quite a bit of it She said, I ve never done anything I ve never gone anywhere And I want you to spend it She said she didn t want me to make the same mistake she had She made me promise that I would fulfill some of my dreams and fantasies She knew I was comfortable, with my businessTo me, a big part of this short 90 page read is about self sacrifice and keeping a promise to a very dear, recently departed motherShe told me that she wanted me to spend her money and there was quite a bit of it She said, I ve never done anything I ve never gone anywhere And I want you to spend it She said she didn t want me to make the same mistake she had She made me promise that I would fulfill some of my dreams and fantasies She knew I was comfortable, with my business and my investments, and she wanted me to take her money and do something crazyBut it was also about finally gathering up your courage to do what truly makes your life worth living.Kirk is a 35 year old accountant and investor who s sacrificed his own life for years to take care of his ailing mother, who has cancer But I see her biggest gift to her son as being not her money, but her desire to see him actually live his life to the fullest So with the money burning a hole in his bank account and the promise to his mother as a much needed push forward, Kirk decides to go for what he wants, which is Red Kirk was fascinated by the younger Red from the moment they met at the ballet, when Red was spending the evening with one of Kirk s colleagues A paid evening.So months later, when Kirk discovers that Red s very expensive time can be rented, he makes a date with Red, only to freak out and bolt just when things were getting interesting In other words, the paid portion of the program.Although mortified by his behavior on their first date, Kirk finally makes another date with Red, which turns out much better This time, they actually hit it off and Kirk begins to open up to Red about his life and his promise to his mother.And when leaving, Red not only tears up Kirk s check, but he also begins to invite Kirk to spend time off the clock and outside of the bedroom with him.Thetime that they spend with one another, thethey enjoy their days and evenings together, both men becomingattached As much from the easy companionship as from the sex They just click.Plus, Red knew that he couldn t escort forever, so he s been good about saving his money up and was starting to think about retiring even before meeting Kirk, so there were less issues about giving up sex for money to be with you , which we normally see in this genre.But both men are very insecure Kirk knows that he s getting older and has a fewinches on his waistline and lines on his face than he would like, so he finds it difficult to believe that the extremely attractive, built and adorable escort might actually want to be with him.And Red, aka Les, grew up being the fat red headed kid and he s terrified of ever reverting back to that person again So he has his own issues to work outI hated myself, Kirk I wouldn t undress with the lights on because I didn t want to see myself naked in the mirror I hated having to take a shower in high school I would see those bodies, the bodies of boys that everyone said were perfect, and I knew that wasn t me Then in college I lost weight I worked out, and I got a body that was like what everyone said was perfectBut both men put in the hard work that it takes to begin dealing with their insecurities and I really enjoyed watching their relationship sprout and grow from their efforts Then once the internal freak outs were done and they decided that they wanted a life together, we get our happily ever after.My only slight criticism about the book was that, while the romance portions of the book were nice, the heat portion of the book could have used a fewlogs on the fire.3.25 Stars for this one
