Market Garden takes a turn toward the sadistic side of lust...
It was odd that he felt his strongest while Nick hurt him. Not hurt hurt, but that moment when the pain came in and receded, like a rolling wave that bared treasure on the way back—that moment felt always like he’d tapped into an inner strength he’d never before touched or been aware of.
I couldn't stay away from the Market Garden series.
1 - I adore L.A. Witt & Aleksandr Voinov
2 - I have a thing for Rent Boys
3 - I loved the first two books

While Quid Pro Quo & Take It Off were all about the blossoming lust-to-love romance of Jared and Tristan, this book focuses on the whip-wielding rent boy Nick...

He wasn’t just a prostitute. He wasn't even just a top. He was, quite literally, during the scenes, the centre of Spencer’s world.
It seems like business as usual when a skiddish new john walks in to Market Garden. Nick wastes no time in sizing him up as a submissive, and quickly makes a move for the new client.

What the hell? Spencer could make juniors stammer and bend clients to his will. But this blond kid who’d wrapped himself in leather and arrogance turned him into a stuttering, stumbling idiot.
Spencer is a Corporate Attorney who is on the fast-track to a heart attack if he doesn't learn to leave his desk and blow off some steam. As a closeted lawyer, he can't seem to use the usual avenues to find willing bed-mates... At the recommendation of a friend, he finds himself at Market Garden and face to face with Nick.

A whirlwind relationship in the form of a business transaction ensues. As Spencer and Nick explore the pleasure that can be gained from combining their sadistic & masochistic tendencies, the trust and familiarity grows into something far more intimate...
Both men think they’re just scratching each other’s backs: Spencer’s exploring a submissive, masochistic side he never knew he had, and Nick is getting off and getting paid. But as time goes on, it’s clear their strictly professional arrangement . . . isn't, and if Nick has one hard limit, it’s that he doesn't get romantically entangled with his johns. The problem is, while Nick doesn't want to be owned, Spencer’s no longer content with just renting.
I'm diving right into If It Fornicates to find out what happens with this kinky pair. I'm not sure if I liked this book quite as much as the first two in the series... I think that the dual POV with Jared and Tristan made those books stronger. This story is told solely from Spencer's perspective, but I happen to know that the next book is Nick's POV, so this type of split seems interesting.
