Blurb: Dancer Kai is the sweetheart of Blue Boy Studio. Cute and petite, he’s the slender bottom every top loves to pound. But nothing is ever quite as it seems, and beneath his golden curls and giggles lies something else…an edge no one can quite put their finger on.
Is Kai bored? Or does he crave something more?
Blue Boy Studio is under new ownership. Veteran porn star Jude has seen it all before, and with the help of Kai’s mentor, Cam, they figure Kai needs a change. Enter Matthew, a fellow dancer and the newbie on the block.
Kai isn’t impressed. Matthew is hot, but Jude and Cam’s plans seem beyond his reach. Can Kai really do…that? He doesn’t believe it, but with Matthew along for the ride, it’s time to be bold and find out.
Review: I’m a fan of Garrett Leigh’s, and somehow I’d missed this series. How, I’m not sure. So I started with this book but as you can see, it’s the third book in the series. I don’t recommend diving in like I did in the middle because the characters and storyline from the previous books are part of the books that follow. Start with the first book in the series and work up to this one; you’ll be much less confused.
That being said this was probably the best one for me to jump in on out of order as I really liked Kai and Matthew. Kai is the kind of toppy bottom that I enjoy reading about because he definitely is not a shy boy, and he unabashedly enjoys sex and dancing. However, that doesn’t mean he wants the same thing all the time. He’s feeling a little bored and not into the scenes like he was before. Not sure quite what he’s looking for, though. He feels a little like he’s at loose ends until he talks to Cam. Even then he’s still not sure that’s what he wants to do.
Enter Matthew, a newbie on the team, both to scene work and dancing. He’s sweet, a little bit innocent, a touch of geek, and definitely who Kai needs in his life. While Kai may be able to show Matthew what it’s like to be in a wildly HOT scene. Matthew is able to show Kai that he’s not a loser or stupid because he didn’t finish school. They both seem to bring out the better parts of each other until Kai decides to freak out a bit and blow things up (no, not literally).
Having read other books by Garrett Leigh, this series is slightly different because they aren’t the deep, dark human aspect stories like Slide or Rare. They’re solid, character driven personality stories that showcase the not so bright and shiny side of life. That is something this author excels at, she has a wicked way with making her characters truly relatable, regardless of their situations.
I definitely recommend reading this entire series because all the books are enjoyable reads. I’ll still admit that Kai and Matthew are my favorites, though, just because they both have that sweetness they try to hide deep within.
