This review was orginally posted on TanaRaeReads book blog.

Confessions of a RentboyConfessions of a Rentboy by T.R. Verten

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a m/m romance/erotica novel.

Book Summary

Acerbic twenty-something Andy is living the dream in London. Too bad he's totally broke. The way to getting paid is getting laid -- or at least that's what he discovers when his friend Michelle introduces him to her somewhat-highly-paid and definitely not glamourous world of call girls and boys. Told with frankness and biting humor, Andy sleeps his way through London: for the sex, the glory, and the rent money.

My Review

I received this book through Tana from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got this book, but boy was I in for a ride. I love a story that sucks you in and doesn’t let go until the end. That is exactly what happened to me while reading. What can I say without giving away spoilers? This book is like “Secret Diary of a Call Girl,” with a m/m twist.

Andy is a “bi-sexual” man, but really a m/m romance guy at heart. The author tells the story as if you are sitting in their listening to his confessions. The story was dark and parts and well, the ending was not what I expected. I’m not sure that is a good or bad thing. Maybe because I’m a hopeless romantic at heart and wanted more.

But that is beside the point. This is a 5 star short story and well worth the time to read. The author has a wonderful way of writing.

The characters that matter most are well developed. The scenery set and let the tears flow at least for me towards the end. This story would blow me over the moon, if it were longer and we got to know more about Nathan and more back story about Nick. But all in all, Great job!

I recommend to all readers of m/m romance.

My Book Boyfriend is Andy. (I heart Andy)
