Summary

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.

Super Cute

This was a really quick listen but honestly still felt like a well rounded out short that didn't feel too cut off or unfinished. I would of course love to see more, but just because I enjoyed these two so much! It was the perfect balance of sweet and Steamy and I loved the narration.

Fab

Loved. Loved. Loved this story. The mix of romance and erotica is exactly at the level I expect. Where has this author been all my life. Now have to check out more of her work.
Just to add that the narrator is excellent too.

Lovely short tale

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, Sweet and Steamy!

This is a great short listen and surprisingly emotive for such a short story. Lily paints a great picture of both Ty and Andy, their personalities, lives and feelings as they meet and develop a bond. I felt all the emotions as they fell for each other, and their connections are deliciously steamy!!! I loved the surprise that is Andy, an adorable geek, with more under the surface! Hats off to the truly talented Lily for creating such a concise and perfect little taster with so few words!!!

Thanks for reading!

Short but sweet

A surprisingly sweet short story of a rent boy finding love. Low on the angst. It had a high sex quota, hardly surprising for a book about a rent boy, porn star, and had some scenes with other clients. But this only served to highlight the tenderness and growing affection in those scenes with Andy.
Good narration as always by Sean.

Wow!

This might be a short book, BUT it's packed with action of the sexual kind! I'll admit it's not my usual fare but I enjoyed listening to it.
Sean Crisden does an admirable job of narrating it.
Recommended to people that like lots of action in their reading/listening material.

I received this code from the author for a fair opinion.

Sweet, sexy and fun!

Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Love to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Love?

The beginning was fun, Ty made me laugh with his cockiness.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

With this being a short story and only just over an hour long it would be difficult to pick a specific scene. The whole story was great, I'm not going to give anything away so won't' go into detail. The dynamics between Andy and Ty surprised me and made for a nice change. Would definitely recommend :)

Very easy to listen to.

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.

** I received this audio book free in exchange for an honest review.

Very enjoyable!

Overall: 4.5 Stars!

I usually prefer longer books, mostly because I feel character development and set-up are lacking in shorter stories. However, Lily Blunt has quickly changed my mind, at least in her case. This book has more than enough length to make me know and love Tyrone and Andy, to make me root for them and want to read the next book to find out how they're faring. Yes, the book can be read in a couple of hours tops, but there's a lot going on in that time. 

There's a lot of chemistry between two likable MCs, hot sex, closeness, laughter, some angst and a satisfying ending. You can't really ask for much else, other than having someone like Sean Crisden narrating the audiobook version. He has a very pleasant voice and he captured both Tyrone and Andy perfectly. 

Definitely recommendable in any version!

Hot and Sweet

If you could sum up Finding Love in three words, what would they be?

That was unexpected!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ty was my favorite character because the story was told from his point of view. You see him as not just a "rent boy" but a real person who finds love when he least expects it.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Andy tops Ty for the first time because I believe that is when he realizes that his feelings for Andy are changing.

Who was the most memorable character of Finding Love and why?

The old lady at the senior center who recognized him as a porn star and told Ty his videos were "hot"!

Any additional comments?

A quick, satisfying listen!

short and sweet

Any additional comments?

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.

Take me and love me whole

Hot, dirty and fast! 😍🔥 I love that this is not the common tale of an escort falling in love with a billionaire. 😅 The client is an ordinary guy who’s just an inexperienced virgin. And he wanted some experience before going for the guy he wanted to date and instead, he fell for his mentor. It was sweet, endearing and really really hot! 🔥🔥🔥 I also like the unexpected roles reversal between Ty and Andy. It was refreshing. And Sean Crisden did a good job with this one. This definitely was a perfect bite sized audio. Loved it! 💜🥰

great great great

This is a great fun lighthearted smexy listen that I loved start to finish. A smile on my face and warmth in my heart. I think Ty had integrity and principles regardless of his profession. When feelings changed both guys were super adorbs! The narrator's voices and expressions were spot on great!!

Perfectly Tantalizing

Having read 'Finding Love: The Perfect Size for You' at its release in 2016 I can’t imagine anyone more perfect than Sean Crisden to narrate Lily G. Blunt’s tantalizing novella. His tone and inflection make Tyron’s confidence and forwardness so much a reality you can almost see his charming smirk. And when Sean switches to Andy, wow! The young man’s youthfulness, innocence, and nervousness are loud and clear.

After updating his “rent boy” site in the most direct of ways (hint: perfect size for you) Ty finds a quick hit. When he meets the man he is not who he expects. Rather he’s a virgin who’s looking to get some “experience” so he can come out to his best friend, Evan, on whom he’s had a longtime crush.

From the start Ty and Andy’s interactions are easy, relaxed – almost date like. With his escort service taking off, and his thoughts now constantly turning to Andy, Ty is torn. As a friendship develops so do other emotions and when Andy begins to date Evan, Ty feels something he’s never felt before. Jealousy.

Once Ty has to “man up” for Andy he realizes this is no longer a normal hookup. But is Andy really the innocent virgin or is this just the scene he’s paying for? And can Ty cut him off with his heart now in the mix? Will it only be friends with benefits or will Thursday night sessions lead to more?

Grab your earbuds and sit down with this tale of sex ed as Sean Crisden reads Lily G. Blunt’s 'Finding Love: The Perfect Size for You as it should be read'; making you fantasize about romance.

Short & sweet

This book was actually kind of sweet in a way, which I didn't expect at all. Thought it might be a bit steamier, but that's ok. It was a good quick listen.

Short, sweet, and hot

What a cute story! Ty is a rent boy who is facing the existential crisis of not having a date. After updating his profile he’s hired by Andy. To his surprise, Andy is much younger than his average client. Young. Like barely legal. And also inexperienced. He believes himself in love with his friend Evan and has convinced himself that if he knows what he’s doing in the bedroom then he’ll be confident enough to know what to do when Evan does finally come to his senses.

Ty’s happy to show Andy how it can be between two men. He tells himself it’s just about sex but slowly he finds himself looking forward to his time with Andy. The young man is endearing and earnest – a refreshing change from Ty’s normal clients.

This is a short listen but I really enjoyed it. There were a few surprises as inexperienced Andy spends time with knowledgeable Ty. I got my Happily For Now and that was awesome.

Sean Crisden is one of my fave narrators. The story is told entirely in Ty’s point of view and Sean nailed the character and the performance. Loved it.

Lovely!

I truly enjoyed this short story and the narration drew me in quickly and I listened to it in one sitting.

Andy hires Ty to help him work out how to ask his crush out on a date. Ty is everything Andy isn't when it comes to sex and when he agrees to help Andy, a sweet friendship starts to develop. This was a slow burn type of story I love and Andy and Ty are very cute together! A lovely short read!!
