If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it’s cheaper to rent it.

Nick is a top earner in the Market Garden, where rentboys fulfill their high-rolling clients’ every sexual fantasy. As a Dom and a sadist, he sets his own price and is experienced enough not to let any client get out of hand. He’s damn good at his job, and it’s easy money.

Or at least it used to be. But now he has a boyfriend. Spencer is a former client, a closeted corporate lawyer, and so beautifully submissive he’s perfect for Nick. He doesn’t even mind how Nick earns a living. He just wants to take care of Nick—something Nick isn’t quite sure how to handle.

In fact, Nick’s clearly off his game these days. Sure, he’s tired from his shift work and his studies, but mainly he’s bored by his clients and distracted by thoughts of Spencer—dangerous for everyone when he’s wielding a whip. Now Nick has to make a choice: give up his independence, or walk away from the only man he’s ever loved.


The conclusion of Nick & Spencer’s story blurs the line between warm/fuzzy and steamy/sexy!

“When you invited me over tonight,” he said, deliberately whispering so Spencer had to strain to hear, “was it just for dinner? Or did you want… something more?”

“I want everything you give me, Nick. Anything at all.”

Oh God, talk about sparks flying. Almost four months in, it still felt like they’d barely scratched the surface.

If It Flies and If It Fornicates are a duet within the Market Garden Series which follow the relationship of Nick and Spencer. In the last book our D/s couple decided to go all-in and cultivate a relationship beyond their professional arrangement. Their feelings had grown too deep to continue on the Rent Boy/john path.


Spencer never seemed remotely tempted to back away. He reminded Nick of a kid trying out a theme park ride for the first time: he knew it was inherently safe, and wasn’t actually afraid, but had no idea what twists and turns and feelings awaited him once the ride began.

Spencer has found a bright spot in his dreary day-to-day life: Nick, the Rent Boy who whipped his way into Spencer’s heart. Together they are exploring how far they can blur the lines of pleasure and pain, but they are also finding warmth and easy companionship in the arms of each other.


He was one of the in-demand rentboys; like Jared and Tristan, he had his own little fan club. Regular customers, some who’d paid enough over time that they could’ve bought themselves luxury cars in cash instead of blowing their wads on, well, blowing their wads.

Nick is having a hard time trying to create a balance between his personal and professional lives. Spencer seems perfectly fine with Nick continuing his work at Market Garden, but Nick’s dick heart is no longer in the game. He can’t get Spencer off his mind, and his work is suffering for it… And when you wield a whip for a living, your clients could suffer for it as well…

Nick finds himself at a crossroads…

I can be Spencer’s boyfriend. I can be a rent boy.
I can’t be both.

I loved this installment of the Market Garden Series…

I loved that If It Flies was exclusively Spencer’s POV, while If It Fornicates was exclusively Nick’s…

I loved the struggle which came from trying to balance Nick’s job with his growing feelings for Spencer…

I loved how beautifully the two interacted together – from casual dates to whips and chains…

I loved the parallel of their jobs: both demanding and soul-crushing at times, but one infinitely more “acceptable” than the other…

There was so much warmth and affection in this story.
Another winner from the Market Garden Series…
