Jeremy Linden’s a PhD student researching an HIV vaccine. He’s always short of money, and when biotech startup PharmaTek reduces funding for his fellowship, he’s tempted to take a job at a men’s dining club as a serving boy. The uniforms are skimpy, and he’s expected to remove an item of clothing after each course. He can handle that, but he soon discovers there’s more on the menu here than fine cuisine. How far will he go to pay his tuition, and will money get in the way when he realizes he’s interested in more from one of his gentlemen?
Brice Martin is an attorney for a Silicon Valley venture capital firm. When he’s asked to take a client to the infamous Dinner Club, he finds himself unexpectedly turned on by the atmosphere and especially by his server, Remy. He senses there’s more to the sexy young man than meets the eye. The paradox fascinates him, and he can’t get enough of Remy.
Their relationship quickly extends beyond the club and sex. But the trust and affection they’ve worked to achieve may crumble when Jeremy discovers Brice’s VC firm is the one that pulled the plug on PharmaTek—and Jeremy’s research grant.
Two first for me, this author in any form and this narrator. Both were great and will look them up again.
Jeremy has a hawt body, a brilliant mind and is broke. Brice is an attorney that has moved to the area not long ago after a break up from a long time boyfriend and is not really looking for anything because he’s still confused on what went wrong the last time.
As Jeremy makes the decision that he can do this, the dinner club thing, he is just that broke. Brice slimy colleague drags him to the club.
The first time for both, first day nerves are cute on both. With Rand, Kit and the dinner club guys cheering them on they make it through the first meal and after dinner drinks or night caps.
The second time, doesn’t go as planned.
I just loved the commentary throughout this whole thing, when at the club, Kit making references that we stepped into Pretty Woman, then the last few lines at the club. The guessing and second guessing throughout, because both of these people are out of there comfort zones.
Both wanting a relationship but too proud, too confused, too insecure to know how to start one under the circumstances they met under.
I love how even though the met, lets face it in a sex club,we date, learn about them, dial it back, but the author not silly enough to stop the sex once it’s been brought to the table. Just able to mix it in with learning, it’s a nice blend.
And of course we have the normal misunderstanding, mistrust, and two nights in shining armor coming to save the day.
This narrator did a wonderful job with the different characters, the Happy the sad the and even the hawt steamy parts.
