After one of his most lucrative rentboys quits, Frank is thrilled when a gorgeous replacement walks through the door. A former US soldier, Stefan is hot, bold, and perfect for the Market Garden’s clientele, especially those with a thing for camouflage and drill sergeants. He’s perfect for Frank, too, except Frank has a rule about not getting involved with his own rentboys.
During a frisky game of paintball, Stefan makes it clear that he doesn’t care about the rules. Not the rules of the game, and definitely not Frank’s refusal to get involved. He captures Frank on the field using stealth and cunning, and makes it clear that he’ll do anything to keep a hold of him off the field too.
While I don’t usually enjoy serial novella’s, The Market Garden serial is one that I completely enjoy. I like that each book is about a different set of characters who we meet in the previous books. And the best part of those are that you don’t have to read them all in order to understand what is going on.
In this book, we meet Frank, the owner of the famous Market Garden, and we get to find out why he started it in the first place. Frank has always been in the background, we know about him but not ABOUT him. So I was glad when his story finally was going to be told. There is a lot going on with him, and I don’t want to give too much away by telling you everything, but I have to say one of the twists that is in this book I completely liked the fact they put that in there.
Stefan’s character I am unsure as to what I feel about him. While he was a very interesting person, there were parts of him that I didn’t enjoy. There were times where I felt like he was just using Frank to try to get ahead. But throughout the story, we find out more that makes him him. I liked the fact that he understands what Frank is going through and wants to be with him no matter what.
I liked the different aspects that the authors thought to add to the story. The paintball field, the games that went on in that field, everything like that.
All in all, once again I am completely glad with how this story played out. Another great part of of the series!
