I really enjoyed this story, I enjoyed how frank the characters were with each other and I really enjoyed the dialogue. Now I’m not usually a dialogue fan, I like it when it keeps the story moving forward, such as in this case. It not only helped the story to move along it also gave me a really good feel for the characters.
The story is complex by design and there are many facets that make this story enjoyable. There is Rentboy, Blind MC, an Ex’s hostile family and a guilt ridden MC, combine all of these and the author came up with a very interesting story. The downside of it, the book was not long enough to flush out and give reasoning behind the actions. This is most relevant with Seth, his blindness and his guilt over his ex’s death left me hanging a bit, the reasoning was skated over but not brought to life.
The rentboy aspect I really enjoyed, no that’s not right. True Beau is a man for hire but that is his job, and I can go on a tirade about sex workers and the social misconception of them. This isn’t about the poor rent boy that finds love, this is about 2 men that come together and find part of themselves in the other, it’s about connection and love, it’s also about Trust. These are the aspects of a romance and S.C. Wynne did a really wonderful job in bringing it to life, my personal belief is that it could have been so much better with an additional 50 pages to wrap up all the nuances of the story.
That’s all, it’s a good novella.
Beau Dexter is a male escort with zero belief in love. He had a rough beginning in life, and he’s not looking for anything other than a full roster of satisfied clients.
Seth Fontaine is blind and grieving the loss of his lover five years ago. But even a broken-hearted man has needs, and that’s where Beau comes in.
Neither one of them is looking for anything other than a little superficial fun. But when these two damaged men connect on a much deeper level than expected, Beau’s extreme fear of emotional intimacy almost derails them before they even begin.
S.C. Wynne started writing m/m in 2013 and did look back once. She wanted to say that because it seems everyone’s bio says they never looked back and, well S.C. Wynne is all about the joke. She loves writing m/m and her characters are usually a little jaded, funny and ultimately redeemed through love.
