Calling it quits at 40%

I love me some cheese on my fries, Pizza etc,but too much of cheese = cheesiness.

At 40% and I don’t even know who is who. The title drew me in, the book failed to deliver the gay for pay theme.

It’s not me this time, I really think it is the book with all the typos, English is not my first language and I can overlook a few typos but here it was too much. The dialogue was straight out of a bad porn movie.

There was a story here but, IMHO the execution faile

This story starts off as a serious drama, introducing Chris, a tortured 23 year old former high school football star with a dark past, and quickly turns into a gay unicorn piñata exploding into a shower of glitter and sex toys, when straight, mourning Chris finds a gay porn brochure in a gay sex club toilet (don't ask).

In 2010 Christopher Allan Roberts had the world at his feet. He was a young football star with a full ride to the University of Alabama, popular,lots of friends, a loving family, and a gorgeous girlfriend who thought the sun rose and set on him. In a single night the decision to drive while drunk ruined it all.

Five years later, after the trial, and after a spiraling period of drugs and alcohol, Chris's best friend Michael convinces Chris to get out of Alabama and move with Michael and his boyfri

I hate to have to do this but I ended up pulling the plug at 60%. To be honest my interest in this book was on life support for quite some time before I finally let it go, but I felt the premise was interesting enough to make an effort. Unfortunately by doing that I actually just avoided reading altogether the past few days.
I'll start with what I liked. I thought the idea of a straight gay-for-porn rookie was brilliant. I have an odd fascination with men who decide that they will ha

There are some errors in even just the blurb, but something about this story ( for pay? porn? football player?) is saying "read me! read me!" and I'm inclined to just be like "Oh hell, okay."

A review by The Blogger Girls.

I have always been a bit of a skeptic when it comes to the GFP issue for various reasons and am always keeping an eye out for a bit more insight. So when this story came along, I jumped on it. Add to the fact it seems loosely based on the Cocky Boys, I thought it would be fun to see a story with possibly recognizable characters. This turned out to be just what I was looking for.

Chris is the guy who was sort of down on his luck ever since a bad mistake in high school

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Chris did something wrong. Stupid. Fatal. Although he never went to prison for it, the shunning of family and friends, the loss of a beloved, it was enough of a punishment that would have sent a weaker man to his knees and end it all. Chris did wallow in the misery but his staunch friend and supporter never allowed him to sink deeper. One day he sees a flyer t

Narration 1 Star

Normally for an audio review I would write it up in two separate parts, one for the story and one for the narration but in the case of Gay for Pay I am going to run it all into one.

The story itself was an interesting glimpse into the behind the scenes set up of a gay porn company. Is it realistic? I don’t know but it felt real to me in terms of the story. The company is run by a throuple, I’m still not sure about that word, who have bu

At first I wasn’t to sure about what I was reading, started off slow and I didn’t find myself really connecting with the characters. After few chapters in, I honestly have to say I was hooked. I really really liked this. I read this all in one sitting and wish it were longer because I really loved getting to know these characters. This is a story about love, loss, regret, loneliness, letting go and second chances at new love.

4 stars

While detailing aspects of the porn industry, Gay For Pay offers an insider look at more of an upscale side of online porn, where performers are invited into the owners’ home and offered to make them comfortable and part of the family. Chris is written as an empathetic character that has been paying for his mistake for years. Feeling like a continual burden to his best friend as he continues to live on his couch, Chris takes the plunge into porn.

This is a story that shows that one mistake can change our lives drastically. Chris was young and had his life set. A scholarship a beautiful girlfriend, a supportive family, lots of friends. That is until one fateful day he drank too much and his entire life turned upside down leaving him with no future, and no family and no job.
He had one loyal friend that moved him to New York with him letting him crash on his couch. One night Chris ventured in a gay bar, met a sweet twink that became a good

Gay for Pay was the first book I read by TM Smith and most def wont be the last. She had a way of drawing me in with her writing, that kept me captivated during my morning routine as well as in the car to the shopping mall, as I couldn't stop reading - to say hubby was not happy would be an understatement.

I love the whole "gay for you" aspect, and loved it even more knowing how comfortable Chris was with the gay community.

I also really enjoyed all the "behind aspects of the porn industry" and
At the beginning I wasn't sure whether I would like this book, because I had felt the writing style as a bit wooden. But either it had improved over the course of the book, or I had gotten used to it. Anyway, I continued reading and got captured by all the lovely characters, the MC's Chris/Kris and Linc, as well as all their friends and special family.
Apart from a short prologue, the book began five years after Chris' fatal mistake.

I really liked this book. I wasn't sure because I'd never read this author before, but I read a good review so picked it up on a whim. I'm so glad that I did.

Five years ago, Chris made the biggest mistake of his life...driving when drunk. It killed his girlfriend/fiancee, ruined his football career, and alienated almost his entire support system who couldn't forgive him for his stupid mistake...including his own family. He's sleeping on his best friend Michael's couch. Michael was the

GFP is a tough book to review because there were several things I LOVED about it, and a few that I really struggled with. The beginning of Christopher’s story is heartbreaking in so many ways. His life, choices, family and friends all come together to create a perfect storm of emotions that rocked me to the core.

Linc is incredibly real. His emotions are simply out there for everyone to see. Although he tries to hide the pain broken trust and past relationships have caused, Linc is still willing

Determined to move on he needs a job but that is proving difficult, that is until he stumbles upon the bright lights of a gay bar, Berlin, and sees a promo for male models/actors required for a gay porn site.
