Reading the story's description I expect this to be a sweet romance. After all this really sounds like "Pretty Woman". While it started off well with Roland a wealthy man hiring Josh to be his escort to get back at his ex the story just falls by the side once the sex begins. If you like hard core erotica this one is for you. But the sex and more sex is just not consistent with Roland's supposedly "noble" and wealthy philanthropist character. Fine if it just sex between Roland and Josh but when it involves multiple partners with a few guys having a go at Roland simultaneously and voyeurism this is no longer a romantic story but merely a hard core erotica. Too bad as this really has the potential to be a romantic love story.

I had in the past the chance to read something by Ryan Field, and his style is like some of the other gay romance authors out there that I believe are in the field way before it became the last trend. Ryan Field is like Bobby Michaels, Gavin Atlas, Nathan James, Thom Jaymes... if you don't like your sex explicit and very detailed, and apparently (but mind you I say "apparently") without romance, you probably will not like his work.

The premises of the book is exactly the same of the Pretty Woman movie the title refers to: Ronald is a very wealthy gay men, 45 years old, in New York for only a week to participate to some charity events he is promoting. One year before Ronald saw his 20 and more years lasting relationship with Kenneth end since Kenneth dumped him for a very very younger man, and he decided to sell his family business and early retire in Florida. Ronald is an handsome man, but he looks his age: he takes care of his body (he owned a skin care business, so he needed too) and he likes pretty things, and he considers his body a pretty thing too. He is not a man not aware of his potential, but probably living with a man who needed more attention than him, left him a bit unsure of his sexual power. When he is back in town and accidentally meets Kenneth in a shop, the first thing he does is to promptly hire an escort he only met some minutes before.

Josh is not the usual escort; oh yes, he is young and hot, but he is way stronger and clever than expected. He works by day in a bookstore with his ex-wife, hoping a day to be able to buy the shop. Now don't get me wrong, Josh is not at all the intellectual type, he is all in all the classic sex on legs.

I had higher hopes for this book. It's not badly written, but the plot and characters left a lot to be desired. Roland and his manservant have very similar names, and writers usually know to avoid too strong a similarity, even when the novel is populated by a sparsity of characters. Pretty Man Josh himself was likeable, but even as a part-time hustler he wasn't very believable, too involved in his own self-image and instant gratification. We're meant to find this charming and irresistable. Roland, the wealthy man who is still reeling from having been dumped by his extremely bitchy and snobbish and effeminate cliche-ridden ex-partner of twenty years (Roland seems oblivious to all of the faults of this former lover), is amazingly noble, likeable, and generous, to the extent I could only assume his wealth was inherited and he'd been lucky enough not to burn through it. In other words, the man is a fool. Roland was so angelic a character I wanted to smack him, except he's not too angelic when it comes to spending time with his ex-boyfriend and allowing the ex to make persistent digs upon his supposedly current boyfriend. Roland is clueless to the point it's criminal. And Josh and his independent-snarky cliche young woman friend who are wanting the business of a used book store in a time period when bookstores are going out of business? Obviously a charming conceit of the past, though it is said the shop also sells homemade chocolates as a side. When it comes to the love story, I didn't see any love binding Josh and Roland together, and the point is made over and over again what they have going for them in this fairy tale is sexual compatibility and they don't talk very much but they do have sex a lot, in public places as well as private.Read more ›
