On the Clock, Market Garden 8, L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: LGBTQIA, Erotica
It’s no secret I love this series. The characters feel real, there’s some subtle and snarky humour and real romance. That’s what I need in a story, not just sex, even if as here its hot and sensual sex, but without a solid story and characters that feel real it means nothing.
So Blake, AKA Rolex…he used to play with Tristan and Jared but now they’ve left he needs someone new for his UK visits…they’ve recommended he seek out Jason, and so on his next visit he does. Blake doesn’t just want sex, he likes to watch and likes to be watched. Jason loves the money, loves the negotiation that comes with a high roller like Blake and they get along well. He works up scenes and they barter for a price accordingly. Then Blake realises that he feels that bit more – and that’s what I love about books like this. You can feel when things begin to change, its not any one moment but a kind of attitude change over time until suddenly its obvious that it’s now different, that emotions are involved.
Blake’s a nice guy anyway, doesn’t treat the lads like possessions but as friends and I like him. I loved the way he was with Tristan and Jared when they discovered things had changed. He didn’t throw a huff, sulk, rage about wasted money but was a real gentleman and just left his room and gave them time to talk. How many people would do that? He’s from the US and comes to UK on frequent business trips. He’s not from money, has worked – very hard – for what he has and he’s proud of it, but he still retains that respect for people and that makes him a man who I want to find that special someone. So far he’s just been burned and only found lovers that want his money, not him, and that’s why he chooses this route – keeps ( he thinks) emotions out and him safe…best laid plans and all that – ha! Can he convince Jason though? It brings in some very emotional scenes and I so felt for him. It came as a bit of a shock when he realised, and there’s one point where he does something that’s so moving, and I really wanted things to work out for him.
Its another great story from the series, again with that perfect balance of sex and story, where the story is the main feature. It is a shortish read at just over 200 pages, as are almost all in this series.
Stars: five, another great addition to the MG series.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
