Book Review: M/M ~ Gay For Pay by TM Smith ~ (ARC Review + Teaser)
Title: Gay For Pay
Series: Book One: All Cocks
Author: TM Smith
Release Date: June 28, 2015


Christopher Allan Roberts thought he had a promising future; Captain of the football team with the promise of a scholarship to play for Alabama. His high school sweetheart and best friend for as long as he could remember, Amanda, by his side, and the love and support of his family. One night, one mistake changed everything. Chris moves to New York, adrift and alone. A walk one night brings him to the flashing lights, loud music and thrumming bodies at club Berlin. A flyer in the men’s room promises fame and fortune for anyone willing to go on camera and have sex, with another man. Money is money, and how hard could it be, right?

Christopher Allan Roberts becomes Kris Alen, All Cocks newest addition, a gay for pay porn star.

Lincoln Carter is honest with everyone in his life, including his family, about who he is and about his sexual preferences. Linc Larson, the openly bi-sexual gay porn star will do anything with anyone, which pretty much writes his ticket in a versatility charged industry. It’s not his sexuality that interferes with his personal life; it’s his inability to trust.

What Linc wants right now, more than anything, is the chance to do a scene with All Cocks newest acquisition, Kris Alen. Six foot two with Auburn hair, an exquisitely toned and inked up body, Kris Alen is sex personified. Linc doesn’t know if it’s the “I want the shiny new toy” aspect that calls to him, or the distant and wounded expression that haunts Kris’s eyes.

Linc figures out early on that Kris is only working the gay for pay angle that All Cocks brings to his bank account. Can a bi-sexual man with trust issues break down the barriers that Kris has built around himself and help Christopher overcome the painful past he is running from.

Gay for Pay is a gay for you story about two men that will have to come to terms with the mistakes they made in their past, if they want to stick around and have a chance at a future.

Tracy's Review:

4.5 Stars

*copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Well the first thing I am going to say is, someone's a Cockyboy's fan! :D

After a horrific mistake Chris' dreams and his future of College, Football and eventually maybe a career in the NFL, are destroyed along with his future with the love of his life. Chris is the All American straight jock, with a bright future ahead of him. After everything is destroyed, he eventually moves with his Best friend, Michael and his boy friend Max, to NYC. Not being able to find work, he picks up a flyer at a gay club, for a job as a gay for pay model, for a porn company.

There he meets Lincoln "Linc". They become friends and even though he has always considered himself straight, he can't deny the attraction he feels for Linc, another openly bi model. Linc has just gone through a bad breakup and isn't sure if he can trust again, but he is attracted to Chris from the minute he walks through the door.

I adored this book. It was well written, the characters were likable, and I thought the story moved along at a really good pace. It wasn't rushed and even though they are porn stars, the relationship wasn't rushed, and neither was the sex, which was off the charts HOT!!

The secondary characters added to the story nicely, and I'm looking forward to some of their stories. The story is told in multiple POV's, but is mainly told from Chris' POV. The characters had a great chemistry and there was just enough angst to keep the story exciting.

My only complaint, is I would have loved an epilogue, and we get a HFN ending, but I wish the story would have ended differently. I can't say what I wanted, because that would spoil the ending, it's still a good ending for the couple, just not how I thought it would end.

This is my first book by this author, but I'll have to go back and check out her earlier books. I also look forward to the other books in this series!

If you like hot, steamy and romantic.. I highly recommend this book!

P.S. T.M., if you're into prequels, I LOVED Michael and Max, and I would love to read their story!
