If you haven’t read anything from Nya Rawlyns, right now would be a really great time to do so. Reading this book is like finding a gem in a sea of pebbles, it is that exhilarating and exciting.
Nya has given us 2 frickin’ wonderful characters, Kane and David. She takes us to the back alleys and the back rooms of the escort business, but we just linger there, as it is merely a prop in the story. This is a romance story between a successful businessman and a pole dancer/escort the story takes us on an enticing journey through the beginning of their relationship. Here is where Nya’s writing skills come in so handidly, she lets the reader fall head over with Kane and David, she skirts the seedy part of the business which kept the book upbeat, she gave us colorful secondary characters and a brilliant story line.
I have to talk about Kane a little, he is so friggin hot. Kane is very dominant, more Alpha than Master, which helped me with the hotness factor. This may sound a little weird, but it seems this story and/or the writing is running on Testosterone. As a gay man it was so easy to get into the story, it was a story that I wanted to take part in, it was a story that I believed in. Ok, back to Kane (After reading this book, who really wouldn’t want to jump in bed with Kane).
We mustn’t forget David. David is magnificent, his character has so much strength and charisma. I really like a character like David, someone that is just barely staying above the line and yet keeps himself together and focused to do better for himself. What started out as a business deal between David and Kane quickly escalated into more. As strong as David is I appreciated how he let Kane take control.
I cannot wait for the next installment of Bad Boyfriends, this is definitely a must buy for me.

The Book Description:
Kane leads a double life. By day, he pumps iron, running a fitness center, where Jocks and Cougars flock for the burn and the ‘tude. By night, it’s something else entirely that gets pumped, as Kane swaps sweats for Armani to cater to an exclusive clientele, willing to pay well to indulge their special interests and tastes. His double life isn’t a problem until his conniving ex tightens the financial screws.
Finding and retaining suitable companions for his after-dark clients isn’t easy. David Black’s pole dancing performance at a friend’s club hints that he might hit all the bullet points on Kane’s list of requirements, in a way that could mean something other than “just business.”
David is out of work and out of options, so when he’s offered the choice of starvation or performing both on and off the stage, it’s a no-brainer. Kane’s offer of a position with the escort service is as attractive as the man himself, and David agrees to a trial period involving certain conditions. He quickly finds that he’s out of his depth.
Confronted with unanticipated roadblocks, one thing is clear… neither man is taking no for an answer.
