Small Gems – Quid Pro Quo by L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov

Please, God, don’t let me be reading too much into this. – L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov

I probably am. Reading too much into this, that is. How can I not, though, when there’s so very much there to want? Sometimes I wish there was a magicky button I could push to bend authors to my will, to make them write faster and not tease me with these little morsels of salacious goodness and then make me wait for interminable periods of time for more. But since there isn’t, I guess I’ll just have to take what I can get and shut up about it.

Quid Pro Quo is a lot of sex in a little package and it may well be some of the hottest erotica I’ve ever read. It’s definitely some of the hottest erotica I’ve read so far this year, hands down. This is the first short set in the Market Garden universe, where the rentboys cater to the moneyed clientele and the question arises, at least in this installment, of who really holds all the power in this provocative exchange: Tristan, the prostitute, or the nameless john who is an eager and willing pawn in this bid for control over Jared’s orgasm.

It’s not very often that I’ve considered recommending a book for a single sex scene alone, but for this one I might make an exception. L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov have created the perfect atmosphere of want and need, of dominance and submission, and of temptation and voyeurism and a hunger that may only ever be able to be satisfied within the framework of the job.

All I know is that I’m anxious for the next installment. I don’t know whether it will continue with more Tristan and Jared, or if there’ll be other Market Garden boys introduced. Whichever direction these authors decide to go with the series, though, I’ll definitely be along for the ride.

    I read this one over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. I really hope we get to read more about Tristan and Jared in the future. Those two were so hot together! Hopefully L.A. and Aleks won’t make us wait too long. :)


    • Should I be embarrassed to admit I’ve read that scene about…so very many times? I have. There. I said it anyway. :-D It is easily one of the hottest scenes I think I’ve ever read in a book, though there are a few in Aleks’ Dark Soul series that rival it. Silvio is just sooooo mm, mm, mm good.

      Have you had a chance to read Not His Kiss to Take yet? Just curious as to what you thought of it. It’s getting some mixed reviews on Goodreads, everything from “it’s brilliant porn” to “it’s the most disturbing and disgusting book I’ve ever read,” LOL. Either way, though, it’s getting a lot of buzz, that’s for sure.

        I did read it and I have to say, I liked it. It’s kinky, but I wouldn’t call it disgusting. Maybe I’m just not easily shocked because I have read so many stories with BDSM and D/s relationships in them. I actually enjoyed the dialogue (banter) between Evan and Jamie.

        I loved the Dark Soul series and Silvio, too. He was quite yummy.

        Are you reading The Flesh Cartel serial? Now that has some disturbing content, but I can’t seem to stay away from it. I guess once I started that series, I have to find out what happens next. Don’t know if there will be any HEA’s in that one.


        • I think the thing in Kiss that I had a hard time getting around was the whole implication of the Dr./patient thing, not that Evan was a practicing physician at the time (which I kept reminding myself) but that in the position he was in, giving Jamie medical care, which was, uh… hmmm… I dunno, I’m not a doctor, but it’d be like going to the Gynecologist and finding out that the doc was getting aroused during my pelvic exam. Gaaaaah! Sorry, was that TMI? LOL.

          And I haven’t read The Flesh Cartel series yet, but I’m definitely intrigued. I’ve read a little bit of Rachel and a little bit of Heidi with Violetta, so I’m guess it’s got to be good.
