I’m not a big one for product reviews, unless the product is something tech and I need to work out which option to choose. When it comes to books, I most often go by recs from people I know. Then I choose by genre and blurb, very occasionally by cover, and once I’ve found a writer I really like, I read almost everything they’ve published. Just like most people, really… but then, this comment caught my eye:
“It’s a good short story you can read while having a cuppa. I’ll definitely be reading more from Lily.”
I work from home and I’m absolutely atrocious at taking breaks. Recently I’ve started to walk away from my desk to have a cuppa, rather than just gulp it while typing, and to make sure I actually sit down and take a break I’m taking the kindle with me. So a story like this is absolutely perfect – and if you’re like me, and can’t make yourself sit down long enough to recharge, you should checke this out!
Finding Love: The Perfect Size for You
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.
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.
Excerpt from Finding Love by Lily G. Blunt
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.
About Lily G. Blunt
Lily G. Blunt writes contemporary gay erotic romance. She loves to explore the relationship between two men and the intensity of their physical and emotional attraction.
