I loved every minute of this story! Being in Cal’s head was amazing and made me really feel like I knew him. He truly wanted to understand how to be a good Dom to James, and it came through with his request to be trained by Nick. I adored seeing Nick and Spencer from If It Flies and If It Fornicates. Nick was pure perfection with his psychoanalysis of the situation and his joy of helping out Cal.
There were several extremely hot scenes with the necessary emotional connection to really make it work. I was glad I wasn’t in James’ head, since he was not in a good spot in his life, and it could have really brought the story down. We got a glimpse into James’ life, but there was still quite a bit left to explore.
Although the story is complete, I hope to see a sequel. These two are just starting their relationship, and there are so many different things they have yet to explore. I would love to see a story from James’ perspective now that he has somebody to truly take care of him.
I highly recommend this extremely hot step into the Market Garden universe with the engaging Cal.

If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it’s cheaper to rent it.
After driving James Harcourt, his wealthy banker boss, around for a year and a half, Cal isn’t surprised by much anymore. Not even James’s regular trips to Market Garden, London’s most elite gay brothel.
But when James leaves the Garden alone one night and turns to Cal instead, Cal’s floored. After crushing on his boss for ages, it’s his wet dream come true . . . until the awkward morning after. Cal still has a job to do, but he wants to offer more. Yet James doesn’t take him up on it; he keeps Cal at arm’s length and continues his chauffeured jaunts to Market Garden.
As Cal learns what James needs from the rentboys, he tries to fill that need himself. But there’s more to James’s penchant for rentboys than Cal realises, and it may be one role that Cal can’t fill without overstepping his duty.
