A male escort takes on an inexperienced client and breaks the first rule of rent boys: don’t get attached.

After updating his Rent Boy blog profile, well-endowed porn star Ty receives a text from a sexually inexperienced client. Andy, the client, asks Ty to provide him with the necessary know-how so should he ever get a date with the guy he’s attracted to, he’ll be fully prepared.

Little does Ty know that this hookup will lead to a friendship that will subsequently change his life.

This story has been previously published as The Perfect Size for You by Torquere Press in the Take It Like a Man anthology.

This second edition has been expanded and reedited.

The door opened, and a skinny geek with specs faced me. Thinking I had the wrong house, and worried that the boy’s father had made the appointment, I floundered. Now, that will be awkward. How’s he planning to get his kid out of the house?

“Excuse me. I’m looking for Andy. Is he here?”

The boy flushed bright red and pushed up his black-framed glasses. “That’s me, I’m Andy Parker. You have the right address.”

You’ve got to be kidding me.

“Okay, son! How old are you?” He didn’t look a day over fifteen.

His eyes widened, but his gaze didn’t leave mine. He bristled a little, rising to his full height. “I’m eighteen. Nineteen in three months. I can show you my ID, if you like.” He looked beyond my shoulder, then ushered me hastily inside.

I followed him to the kitchen. “I’m Tyrone, by the way.”

He hadn’t even asked my name. I could have been any weirdo coming into his home. I guessed he recognized me from my online photos or my porn videos. Whatever. It looked like he was expecting me anyway.


My Review:

This was a really sweet shortstory!

As the blurb already tells you this is the story of Ty, a rent-boy, and Andy, a sweet and sexually inexperienced guy who’s looking for someone to teach him how to have sex.
Andy has had a crush on his friend for quite a while and wants to be prepared for when he has a date with this friend. So Andy hires Ty to just”show him the ropes”; just a professional relationship.. But of course things don’t go as planned. 😉
While this is similar to other rent-boy falling for client stories I’ve read, Ms. Blunt managed to make me really care for both of the characters right from the start. I loved Ty questioning how to best advertise himself and could easily picture myself in his place. When I read the blurb I was prepared for the stereotypical sexworker, being overly confident and shallow. I can assure you that Ty is nothing like that!

Despite this being a short story Ms. Blunt manages to by the end make you feel like you know these two.
I really enjoyed that Finding Love doesn’t feature another case of insta-love, but that they fall slowly in love over several “dates”. I liked the realistic-ness of Ty and Andy starting things slow and working up to the actual sex because sex is an intimate act, doesn’t matter whether there’s money involved or not. I imagine the lines are easily blurred between professional and personal relationship and it was so beautiful to see this happening here.

If you’re looking for something short and sweet, this is the right book for you.

The sexy times were sweet and then hot! I’m really anxious to get to this author’s other porn industry book!”

“A definite must read!”

“Lily’s writing flowed well for me. She combined a nice mix of sweet and hot but neither guy came across as needy or desperate.”

“It’s a good short story you can read while having a cuppa. I’ll definitely be reading more from Lily.”
