Dylan is a gold digger using his position as a waiter to hopefully score an older gentlemen in hopes of creating a better life for himself. In hopes of finding his sugar daddy he works at at trendy LA restaurant. He does try but just never finds the right man he even meets a movie producer that he thinks his is ticket. Only to get sent packing before any of the fun began but it is this night that will send Dylan on a dangerous road fraught with kidnapping and murder. Before we get to all of the murder and mayhem Dylan does meet Simon a nerdy little guy celebrating his 30th birthday at the restaurant, not rolling in money he would have usually skipped by Dylan’s radar. Curiously enough curiosity won out and Dylan became friends with Simon. OK, now we can get to the kidnapping, murder and mayhem, with a developing romance between Dylan and Simon.
I liked how the relationship between Dylan and Simon progressed through the friendship stages to the getting naked and ballin’ relationship. The threats that were hanging over Dylan’s head added a whole lot of intrigue to the story and a bit of angst between Dylan and Simon because Dylan wasn’t forthcoming in telling Simon everything. I think Lou nailed the character of Dylan, I wouldn’t call him immature he is naive and lacks life experiences. The lack of experience and the naivety of Dylan hindered Dylan in making smart choices when it came to bad things that were lurking around the corners.
A really tight story line that gave me wholehearted characters that made me feel part of the story. I recommend this book for the Romance and Intrigue that kept me turning the pages.
Self-confessed gold digger Dylan Price is cooling his heels as a waiter at a trendy West Hollywood restaurant, waiting for the sugar daddy of his dreams to walk through the doors. Someone rich, sophisticated. Preferably old.
Bookish Simon Wainwright couldn’t be further from Dylan’s ideal. Aside from his terrible fashion sense, Simon suffers from a glaring lack of a Beverly Hills mansion. And he’s barely over thirty!
Dylan, however, isn’t made of stone. Coincidence, an obscene candle, even Simon’s dorky cardigan compel him to give the shy academic a very special birthday gift, which Dylan files away as a one-night stand. But when Dylan’s quest lands him in hot water, he runs to Simon to hide.
The two take off for Las Vegas, where Dylan takes upon himself to give Simon a complete makeover. For reasons he can’t comprehend, Dylan begins to reevaluate his life—and what he holds most dear. But with danger not far behind, he might be too late.
Warning: Contains a nightclub where the staff is as hot as the food, a waiter with a smart mouth (in more ways than one), a nerdy college professor, Vegas “boylesque” shows, and lots of smexy times.
