Twenty-one-year-old Noah Jeffries has a secret. He’s putting himself through college under the rent boy name Max Wilde. He doesn’t mind the sex, most of the time, and he sure doesn’t mind the money. But when he falls hard for Carlos, a hot student activist, he’s clobbered by a tough decision. Can he give up making big money on a chance for love? Will the guy even want to be with him if he knows his secret?
Meanwhile, being Max Wilde is getting complicated. A high paying client who’s the provost of Noah’s university wants Noah all for himself. There’s danger as the guy gets more obsessive, and now it could spill out and impact Carlos as well.
Max Wilde is an exceptionally erotic rent boy with the singular focus of seducing his more affluent clientele. Noah Jeffries is a bookish college student with ambitions of making the world a fairer place by employing his intellect and theories on working capitalism from the ground up.
These sound like two different people, but they are one in the same – and the wall that has so meticulously been constructed begins to crumble – with what may be disastrous consequences…
While I genuinely love the chemistry between Noah and Carlos and even Max and “the Provost,” the pacing really threw me for a loop. It felt like the author was hurried in an attempt to get to the next part of the story at various times. It took away from developing a really great narrative around both sets of relationships.
I wanted to learn more about Carlos and felt that his character was not as developed as he could have been. My solace is that there could be more character development in follow-up books in a series.
The end of this story left me wanting to know more about what happens next. Either it was well-written or I just fell in love with these characters – or both! I don’t think you will be disappointed overall.
I recommend this book and author since I believe the series will be well worth it!
