*3.5 stars*

I'm a huge, HUGE fan of the Market Garden series, with my favorites of the bunch being Nick and Spenser's books. I think I had some crazy high expectations for Rolex's story and though this one is sexy like you'd imagine from a Market Garden book, it isn't quite the revelation that I was expecting.

Anyone who has read a book in this series knows Rolex. Super high-roller who loves to watch others get it on ring a bell? I was waiting to get to know the man behind the watch, and I was re

Below is my complete review. It was originally rated FOUR Goodreads Stars. I chose to round up versus down because I loved this series in general. In the comments section is the author's unprofessional behavior when I tagged him in a post on my blog to PROMOTE his book.

3.5 Stars!

Well...this one was rather porn-y, I must say! Not much in the way of character or relationship development.

But it was definitely hot, I'll give it that.

I never really felt much of a connection between rent-boy Jason and his john Blake. Even up until the end I felt like Jason was all about the money.

And then when the "I Love You's" started flying....

Yeah, you lost me. So basically 3.5 stars for the steam factor.

I received this book as an ARC though NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I took me a little while to get into this book, and I'm not quite sure why. I think I was probably in the wrong mood when I started, but, once I got into it, I was hooked. The characters were interesting, and fully developed people. I loved their interactions, both sexual and platonic, and I loved that their connection wasn't simply physical. I loved Blake's and his respect for Jason. He never looked down on Jason,

Wow, I devoured this book in a frenzy like a hamster on crack. I shed a tear like a drama queen. This is how I felt about the erotic sex in the book.

L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov, I only have one thing to say to you.

There were so many supernova hawt erotic scenes in here that I can only respond in this way...

I am/was a big fan of the series, but this one felt different comparing to the other sequels.
Like it was written not by the same authors. Maybe because it has been already a while back when I read the book #7.
It was hot, as always, but it was a bit boring either. Maybe because Rolex has never belonged to my favorite characters.
I wasn't really connected to the characters and I couldn't buy Jason's attraction for Rolex.
But if you want a lot of hot sex(I mean A LOT OF), and you read all previous b

Rent-boys were never the characters I prefer reading about. In fact this is the only book series I read and enjoyed with them as the MCs. The main reasons I even gave these books a shot were:
~ A. Voinov being one of my fav mm authors
~ the series started out as short, fast-paced, fun and way-too-hot stories with

I'd been looking forward to Rolex's story since reading his hot-as-hell adventures with Jared and Tristan.


I was all over the set-up. Rolex, real name Blake, doesn't mind throwing around tens of thousands of dollars for some hot sex, and high-end rentboy Jason gets off on negotiating selling himself. They made a good pair in the bedroom.

And yes, this book definitely delivers in the hot sexin' department. Extra points for delivering both a threesome and a foursome.

Loved every installment of the Market Garden so far and couldn’t wait to get my hands FINALLY on Rolex’s story.

After reading though I feel kind of cheated. For me On The Clock wasn’t as good as the previous books. I can’t put my finger on it… but it felt different, it didn’t feel like other books written by the successful author duo Witt & Voinov.

Blake aka Rolex was a nice character, I loved to get to know him better… but I couldn’t feel any connection to Jason and why the successful

Blake(Rolex) and Jason met at Market Garden.

Jason was like: Give it to me...

And Blake, who found Jason mouth-watering... Well, he basically...

Then after they fucked, cummed and all. Blake was like:

So they did it again and again... Until, like every other romance book out there, everything changed... How? I won't spoil it. Lol! Go buy and read!

As for my review, well as usual, this was HOOOOOOTTTTTT!!! That Skype call on the blurb? It was way way way hotter than I expect

This is basically pwp featuring a prostitute and his john. I will also admit that it was quite good pwp, but in the back of my mind I was wondering "why couldn't we have gotten 219 pages of Tristan and Jared instead?"

Anyhoo, Blake, aka Rolex, was the mysterious figure who featured in Tristan and Jared's stories. He's loaded with an endless amount of money and is willing to pay top dollar for a variety of scenarios that tickle whatever fancy he may have at the moment. Blake typically pay

The eighth instalment in the Market Garden series is a smut-fest like no other.

The American high-roller, Blake, aka Rolex, goes to Market Garden once more to get a rent boy recommended from none other than hotties Tristan and Jared. Jason is a wet dream come true and the boys waste no time getting down and dirty. Seriously, the sex in this book raises the bar so high that I wonder what the next instalment will bring. The scenes are not for the faint of heart, including a couple of ménage scenes
3.5 stars

So much sex (...I say with love).

A good story, but it felt different from others in the MG series. There's no doubt in my mind these boys liked each other in the bedroom, but I never really bought into Jason's attraction for Rolex (outside of the $$$). Maybe because the story is told from Rolex's POV?


Anyway, it was a nice read, and I loved the sexy time.
Like, a lot.
So there's that.

This was much better than I thought it would be. After reading the first chapter and realizing the difference in my dear Rolex, er um, Blake, I was prepared to read this with a permanent grimace on my face. But thank fuck that didn't' happen.

Quid Pro Quo was my first "official" m/m romance so Rolex, he has a special place in my heart as well as my libido. I loved the hell out of Tristan and Jared but the addition of Rolex and the power play he create for them all was off the charts hot so I was
When I first got this book and finished reading it, I thought it was fabulous - a fitting end to the series, with Rolex finally finding that what had seemed elusive to him all along. I didn't have the words ready for a review, so I left it sitting at 'currently-reading' for a while, until I could read it again.

And the 2nd time round, I wasn't as enamored with it. It's still a solid piece, no doubt about that, and the sex is as smoking hot as I've come to expect from this series, but something wa

In my review of Payoff (Market Garden #6) I said, "Rolex really is one of those characters that you can't help but like because basically he's a nice guy." Each book that has featured Rolex as a john I enjoyed not only because of the rent boys he was involved with but because of Rolex aka Blake. I like that he wanted different things from "the boys", I like that he pushed them and himself, and I liked that despite the fact that he di

Okay, if I'm being honest, I'd have to say that this book would have had to be really bad for me not to give it 5 stars. This is a book I feel like I've been waiting for since the beginning of time. "Rolex" has been one of my favorite characters in the Market Garden series and getting his story was already exciting. But to be one of the people who had a hand in naming him? Excitement overload!

The story didn't disappoint... Blake, that's Rolex, is and was exactly how I expected him to be. He's mo

Fun! I liked Tristan and Jared from some of the earlier Market Garden stories, and at the end of their story, I was very interested in finding out more about Rolex. This book is full Rolex (plus Jason, a friend of Tristan and Jared's). It's definitely erotica—there's more story in the later stages, but a heavy chunk is sexy stuff (very sexy stuff).

Very enjoyable!

I didn't know money could be a kink. I guess anything could be a kink but the constant mention of money was a distraction for me. I mean, I was constantly thinking of Make it Rain and Bandz will make her dance.

I liked Rolex with Tristan and Jared, but I didn't enjoy him as much with Jason because I wasn't sure it was truly genuine feelings for Blake or an enjoyment of the lifestyle Blake has.

If you're looking for monogamy in your romance, do not read this book. If you want some sizzling hot erotica, bundled with beautiful, believably developing romance with open communication and no unnecessary angst, this book is a must-read!
As I already commented in my update during the first quarter of the book, the sex scenes in this book were simply mind-blowing, quite on the same level with the first two Rolex books (and, to be honest, all Market Garden books). I think this is among the best e

God I love this series! It is definitely one of my, if not my all-time, favorites. The Market Garden series are all the perfect blend of heat and emotions and this story is no exception! Blake and Jason are perfect together - their chemistry is steamy. I love that Blake didn't make any demands or try to make changes to Jason. The only part of this story I didn't like? That it ended - I need more of these two! It ended on what felt to me like a HFN and I need to know what they have is a HEA. I wa ...more
