Summary from the publisher:

Tristan and Jared have got it made. When they aren’t raking in the cash together at Market Garden, they’re burning up their own sheets and getting closer by the day. But something isn’t right. Tristan’s on edge, and Jared doesn’t understand why.

Before they can hash things out, their services are requested by none other than Rolex. And Rolex doesn’t just want to be a bystander this time. He wants Jared while Tristan watches, and he’s more than willing to pay for it.

But Tristan’s reached a breaking point, and even that huge wad of cash might not be enough to keep tonight’s arrangement from crashing and burning.

My Musings:

Note:  PAYOFF is book #6 in the MARKET GARDEN series.  I would not suggest attempting to read this as a stand alone.

Tristan and Jared are rentboys at "Market Garden", a high end brothel in London.  They started out, way back in book one, as nothing more than coworkers.  There was a spark of mutual attraction, but neither one was too keen on mixing their personal and professional lives.  That all changed when Rolex showed up and was willing to pay the big bucks to have both of them.  Over the course of the series, an intense personal relationship between Tristan and Jared has developed, but they’ve kept the status quo of their professional relationship.  PAYOFF is where the personal side and the professional side of Tristan and Jared’s lives come to a standoff. 

PAYOFF kept the high standard set by the previous books.  Rolex deciding he wants to participate with Tristan and Jared is what forces everything to come to a head.  What happens is in turn frustrating and then sexy as hell. 

I think I’ve become addicted to MARKET GARDEN.  It’s the most delicious series of hot little novellas, and I can’t get enough of it. I’m not a fan of books which are more sex than plot, but these books are at least 50% sex.  What makes it work for me is that the plot is built through the nights spent working at Market Garden, which is mostly sex.  You get to know Tristan and Jared as they work.  You get to see what’s happened in their lives since the last time you saw them at Market Garden.  It’s a unique and interesting way to develop a storyline. 

I have no idea what magic these authors have concocted to make this series work so well, I just hope they keep it up!


Overall: 4 stars

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
