Review: Quid Pro Quo


Quid Pro Quo by L.A. Witt

2 stars

Read on 25 May, 2017

Synopsis: For the past six months, Jared’s been selling sex at Market Garden, a London club that caters to the better-off. But business is slow in the run-up to Christmas, when businessmen and bankers are too busy bickering over bonuses to rent themselves a little high-class action.

Though Jared’s wallet finds the downtime unnerving, the rest of him rather enjoys the opportunity it gives him to admire Tristan, an old hand in the club whose reputation usually sees him well-booked. Jared has been crushing on Tristan for months—he’s no more immune to Tristan’s cockiness and confidence than the johns, and those are just Tristan’s inner qualities.

Just as Jared’s about to chat Tristan up, a businessman asks for something a little different: he wants to book them both. They agree—and Jared finds himself going from crush to mind-bending lust as he’s made the pawn in a sexual power game. Tristan shows him how a pro handles a john while delivering the top-shelf sex for which the Market Garden is so rightly renowned.

This title is part of the Market Garden universe. Continue reading

Bookish Things: 342 pages. This is book 2 in the trilogy, book 3 is scheduled to be released on 2 February 2016. My review of book 1. This cover is simplistic, some of the other covers are more detailed and have era specific items on them (swords etc). I like the subdued cover of this… it leaves so much room for the book to fill in the blanks. Continue reading
