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.

Although this was only just over an hour long, it had the feel of a much longer book. Sean Crisden's narration (as always) was spot on and made me feel like I was right there with the characters. As it was a shorter book, there were sections where I would have liked a little more detail and expansion, but despite this it is a short tale and it worked very well as one.
"short and sweet"
I have to say, I read the book a while ago, enjoyed it very much. I love this narrator. So the two together for me, no issue.
If you've not read the book, you may find Sean voice wrong for the part. ONLY because we are pre deposed to think 'rent boys' as the small waif types. But if you listen to the description Ty tells us about himself he is nothing like we've read in normal 'cookie cutter' rent boy books. But this quick, just over an hour story is far from normal.
Andy is eighteen, a virgin and trying to make the young man of his dreams jealous. Ty, a little older, a little wiser and been around the block a few times know better than to fall for this young impressionable, adorable, thing but can't help himself.
What we get is a story about three people, two people learning each other and a third wheel. What the listener also gets is a narrator that puts a lot of depth into these characters in a very short period of time.
"Perfectly Sized, Non-Traditional Romance"
I have not read the print version but would definitely recommend the audio version for a complete story in a short amount of time with a competent narrator.
The ending stayed true to the characters as they were presented.
The voice of Ty made the performance enjoyable.
I did not have an extreme reaction but the story held my attention all the way through and it was a cute story of finding love in unusual circumstances.
"Short and sweet"
A cute story about a slow growing romance between a rent boy and a college boy. The narration was great, as I have come to expect from Mr. Crisden. I will look for more from Ms. Blunt.
"Sweet and sexy"
I tend to avoid sex worker stories because so many of them involve people who turn to the work out of desperation, and not 100% freewill. That feels icky to me. I was happy to find this is not the case with Ty. He comes off as a guy who likes sex and is perfectly happy to turn it into a business. In fact, I had to chuckle a bit at him updating his advertising.
Andy is a shy guy who hires Ty so he can learn what to do before he asks his crush out. Ty takes things slow, and as a result, he finds himself thinking of Andy as a friend. And eventually more than a friend. It actually was a very sweet story. For such a short book, there was a lovely slow-built to the romance.
The narration was good, but then Sean Crisden always is.
Lily G. Blunt is a new author to me, but based on what I've read here, I will definitely check out some of her full-length novels.

"A sweet and sexy "snack-sized" story :)"
I knew from the book blurb that I would like this one. Porn star/rent boy plus inexperienced glasses-wearing nerd pushes all my buttons. And this did not disappoint.
Adam hires Ty to teach him what to do with a man. He's in love with his friend Evan and doesn't want to embarrass himself if he does manage to score a date with the guy. Of course Adam and Ty hit it off and Ty soon realizes that Adam is more than just a client. I like that their relationship didn't happen over night. Insta-love is so common in novellas, but it's a huge pet peeve of mine.
Very well written and well narrated. Sean Crisden does an awesome job with both Ty and Adam! Lily Blunt is a new to me author, but I will definitely check out her other work.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
It is a heart warming story and I had a great time listening to this short audiobook It was a true fairy tale and I laughed and cried and never wanted it to end. I wish it was longer
"Sweet and short"
Not a bad story at all. Short, sweet, and a great narrator.
"A Delightful Tail Tale"
About very big things and the boys who know how to use them for love and profit...
