Lee is a high-paid hooker male escort who cares about his clients and treats them with respect, he has a heart of gold despite being treated quite poorly in his life and I fell in love with him instantly. He wears his emotions on his sleeve and his instant attraction to Zach was heartfelt and jumped off the page for me. Zach is a highly-obsessed cop who's thisclose to being a washed-up alcoholic and though it took a little while for me to warm up to him, he eventually won me over. The cop and th ...more

Hot story about a male prostitute who becomes involved with a hot police officer while working undercover to bring down a drug lord.

Lots of sexual tension!! It took a while for sex to happen between the H/H, and when it did it was really really steamy. Good plot, although towards the end, I would have liked a little more focus on the relationship and less on the criminals...

I enjoyed it!

Hmm. Two things this book made me realize. First, I love me some rent boys. Lee was too cute & I totally loved his character. Second, I think I need a break from cops for a while. I'm on law enforcement overload lately. Too much obsession with bad guys & plots that have a million holes. For the most part this was a nice little romance. Great sex. But the bad guy plot left a little to be desired.

I don't know if D.J. Manly is a "he" or a "she" by I tend to be incline for a "he": he has a way to describe his men that is primordial and open, very raw but not vulgar.

Lee is a whore. He prefers to call himself male escort, and he is a very expensive male escort, but even if he has some nice and caring "customers", he is always a whore. And one of his customer is a vicious criminal who is targeted by Zach, a liutenant who has devoted his life to bring him down. Zach has lost his life and his l

Another first for me -- first DJ Manly read -- and I'm sure there will be more.

Lee enjoys his job as an elite escort to the rich men of the city until he meets manly-man and cop, Zach. While it hasn't bothered Lee that his clients like to tell him they own him, order him around, and call him a slut and a whore, suddenly Lee cares about being called a prostitute when it comes out of Zach's mouth.

But there's more than just the budding romance that both men are resisting for their own reasons, ther

D.J. Manly is a hit or miss kind of author for me. I either truly enjoy the books, or I really don't connect with the characters at all. Luckily, I really enjoyed this one!

It could be (and I suppose it is) a rather cliche story about an obsessed cop who virtually blackmails a male prostitute to be a snitch for him. But the way D.J. tell this story lets you see beyond that. You get drawn into the lives of Zach and Lee. You get to understand why Zach is so obsessed. And how Lee is perfectly happy
Good basic story but I wasn't too happy with the characters. I guess because I have an issue with alcoholics and find the idea of a police office drinking on the job and while driving a real problem. So I did NOT like Zach. Especially when he blackmailed Lee into risking his life to do Zach's job.

Oops, I'm getting on my soap box so I'll stop here and say it was a good read but not one I'll re-read. But remember, that's just MY problems about drinking talking.

I loved it!
Hot and dynamic story with loads of sexual tension! Both characters're very likeable, their relationship hot and intense and the crime solving part was engaging too.
Very good read!

This was an excellent read. I've read 3 rent-boy books in as many days. This one is the best hands down.

Zach is an emotionally burnt out cop attached to the SFPD, who drinks too much, mornings included, and is obsessed with putting away a man responsible for his waking and sleeping nightmares of a 4 year old girl that was left for dead and he couldn't save. His 'work' obsession has ended his previous relationship with his partner, Peter, and he's lonely, sexually frustrated, with attitude to bac

I write not only for my own pleasure, but for the pleasure of my readers. I can’t remember a time in my life when I haven’t written and told stories. When I’m not writing, I’m dreaming about writing, doing something wild and adventurous, or trying to make the world a better and more open minded place to live in. I adore beautiful men, and I know I’m not alone in this! Eroticism between consenting ...more
