Kindergarten teacher by day, sensual masseuse by night, Peter Davidson never thought things would get so tough that he’d need to give out sensual massages in secret in order to make ends meet. But when the school slashes his hours in half and with no other jobs available in town, he stumbles across the opportunity when fiddling around on an online dating site and a rather handsome older gentleman offers him money.
What he thinks will be a onetime thing turns into a booming business at night, and Peter promises himself he’ll only do it long enough just until he gets caught up. He has nothing else going on in his life, after all.
Handsome, classy and educated as he is, Peter still hasn’t met The One. Until, that is, he meets Chip - the parent of a new student, who turns out to be more man than he’s ever dreamed of.
What will Chip say if he finds out what Peter is doing on the side? And, what’s worse, what will the school say when they find out this teacher has been a very bad boy?
Peter Davidson is a low paid kindergarten Art teacher that needs to find a way to make ends meet. His department at school keeps getting passed over for funds, so Peter takes a pay cut to ensure the Art program continues to grow. The problem is his grumpy roommate is looking for the rent, and Peter doesn't have it. On a whim, he sets up an online ad to give massages, not quite expecting the response he receives.
Tony is a thug, a big sexy man, used to getting what he wants. Right now that is Peter. And while Peter enjoyed his brief time with Tony, he actually has his sights set on Chip. The cop and father of one of his students. Thinking that his encounter with Tony was a one time thing, Peter doesn't expect the man to just show up on his doorstep, laying down the law and basically laying claim to Peter. What will his cop do if he finds out about Tony, about what it is that Peter does to supplement his income?
There was something about this story that kept me engrossed, I think perhaps it was the danger of Peter being found out at any moment. I really enjoyed the story itself about a man who will do just about anything to guarantee his students have an Art program, but makes some very bad decisions along the way. There are consequences for anyone's actions, and it looks like Peter will find that out the hard way.
Sadly, this story was riddled with mistakes. Typo's galore, missplaced words, run on sentences, and even a name swap along the way. There was nothing wrong with the story or characters themselves, just the formatting and spelling. I'm rounding my rating up from 2.5 to 3 stars because the author did enough to draw me into this world and leave me hanging, wanting to read the next installment to see who will get the guy. The good looking cop? Or the sexy, dangers thug? OR, will both men walk away from Peter. On to the next book to see!
My name is Jamie Lake and I'm the author of more than 12 gay romance novels. I've been a big fan of gay romance books ever since I started reading them and I really try to do something a little different. Some of my favorite gay romance mm authors are Kindle Alexander, Sara York, Riley Hart and River Jaymes.
With my own novels, I like to give my readers all the hot steamy scenes they like, but I also write characters with a lot of drama.
Every single character I write has a piece of me in them and in many ways, their situations have mirrored things I've been through in my own life or other people I know have been through. Whether it's Casey in "Boyfriend for Rent" who was kicked out his boyfriend's house suddenly or Chris in "The Trainer" who was cheated on or even Peter in the "Bad Boy" series who was desperate to find love and stability, I've been there and done that.
Fortunately for me, I have a wonderful partner now, so I know the heights of true love but I also know the lows of a messy breakup. I hope you enjoy reading my gay romance mm stories as much I enjoy writing And although my books have found amazing success, I'm so grateful for every single one of my readers who have helped me make my dream of becoming a full-time gay romance author come true. You rock!
