Loved it!! Great spin on M/M romance and wonderful story!


When you fall for a fantasy, how do you know if it's more than make-believe?

Travis, an unquestionably straight college student, finds himself in a financial bind. He'll do anything legal - including going gay for pay - and spends a weekend as Craig Rocke, letting gay porn star Marston Cougar have his way with him on film. Marston tells him to remember it's all just a fantasy for the camera, even though it sure feels like more.

Gary, also known as Marston Cougar, has a respectable day job. A straight guy, he started out making gay porn to pay his way through college. After getting his heart broken he has a no-dating rule. Now paired with "virgin" Craig Rocke, he finds it hard to keep it make-believe when he's losing his heart.

Gary's young niece needs surgery, and he almost has enough money to quit for good. But now that he feels a true connection with his fantasy co-star, will he be able to find a happily ever after with him when it's more than make-believe?

Contains a modern fairy tale, hot manlove, movie magic, flipped perceptions, and a cranky three year-old who really wants her pizza.

Content Warning: Graphic language, sensual and explicit scenes of m/m sexuality including oral sex, anal sex/play, sex toys, public exhibition, group sex, and public sex.

My Thoughts:

Love can be found not only *when* you least expect it but *where* you least expect it. Tymber Dalton once again weaves a tale of friendship and love that starts someplace that you would least expect it. Her connection with her characters comes through loud and clear. Her vision of love and romance knowing no gender boundaries is also highlight in this story. The bppl is short and made you wish it was longer even if it was just to round out the characters more. I really wanted to know both 'Craig' and 'Marsdon' better. I was expecting more meaningless sex since the story involved the sex industry but was pleasantly surprised when that didn't happen. The sex was beautiful..and you could tell even before they admitted their feelings for each other that there was more going on than the bow chica bow wow that I thought might happen. I totally enjoyed this story and the romance between these men.

4 solid stars for This tale of love and make believe:)...thanks Tymber!
