Charlie, Rentboy (Working Boys, #1)TITLE: Charlie, Rentboy
SERIES: Working Boys #1
AUTHOR: J. P. Barnaby
PUBLISHER: Wilde City Press
BLURB: Got two hundred and fifty dollars for an hour of fun? Then say hello to Charlie, a hot little rentboy working his way through an engineering degree on his back.  He’s got shaggy blond hair that’s great to hang on to while you fuck him from behind, and sweet innocent blue eyes that look very enticing when he gazes up at you with your cock in his mouth. That is, until he’s hired by innocent rich boy John Middleton, head of Middleton Communication. John is so far in the closet he could find Narnia. But when John and Charlie get together for an explosive weekend of sex, everything goes to hell.


Ooh I looked at the blurb and I was sold. I really wanted to read this book. And I didn’t regret that for a single moment.

It is such an easy read, so comfortable although that seems weird with a title with rent boy in it.

You cannot help but fall in love with Charlie, he is such an fascinating personality. He’s so open about what he does at least towards the reader 😉

First you meet Charlie, who’s really David, a engineering student who finances himself through school by working as a top rated rent boy. Getting scheduled for a weekend job, he meets John who is searching for a paid boyfriend for the weekend.

John is a fascinating character with so many layers. The lonely boy, the closeted guy, the big money business owner, the artist. John is searching for more than sex. He’s searching for a connection and he finds that with Charlie.

The time they spend together on their “dates” lets them get to know one another as real people, and while Charlie isn’t entirely comfortable with it, he lets it happen anyway. You are never left with the feeling that Charlie cares more about John Middleton than he does John, the man he’s having dinner with.

Their time together is cut short by circumstances out of their control and the way they decide to deal with the consequences of their actions leaves the reader smiling.

This story is romantic, and relatively drama free and is surprisingly perhaps? A fantastic read and if you’ve read this author before and you read drama free and romantic, you might want me to correct this but I’m telling you the truth. And isn’t that showing guts and spirit!

I applaud Miss J.P Barnaby for doing this,writing this book and taking a different road. I for one cannot wait for the second book in this series.I loved the comfort I got from reading this, the warm feeling that spread through me. I adored the easy way of reading, the brilliant writing as always as well as the sexiness and hotness that sparkles from your page .
