Review of Quid Pro Quo by L.A. Witt & Aleksandr Voinov

For the past six months, Jared’s been selling sex at Market Garden, a London club that caters to the better-off. But business is slow in the run-up to Christmas, when businessmen and bankers are too busy bickering over bonuses to rent themselves a little high-class action.
Though Jared’s wallet finds the downtime unnerving, the rest of him rather enjoys the opportunity it gives him to admire Tristan, an old hand in the club whose reputation usually sees him well-booked. Jared has been crushing on Tristan for months—he’s no more immune to Tristan’s cockiness and confidence than the johns, and those are just Tristan’s inner qualities.
Just as Jared’s about to chat Tristan up, a businessman asks for something a little different: he wants to book them both. They agree—and Jared finds himself going from crush to mind-bending lust as he’s made the pawn in a sexual power game. Tristan shows him how a pro handles a john while delivering the top-shelf sex for which the Market Garden is so rightly renowned.


Quid Pro Quo is the first installment in the Market Garden series and is for those wanting an hour of intensely steamy yet mindless entertainment.  It takes place in the world of rent boys where money can indeed buy you happiness, along with a few hours of sexual fun.

Jared's the new boy toy on the block and has slowly become enamored of Tristan, whose been in the business a long time and knows how to get the most money out of his clientele.  Jared's been dreaming of getting his hands on Tristan and when a client gives him the opportunity to put on a show for him WITH Tristan he almost forgets that their time together is for business.  What follows is a steamy encounter that practically burns your retinas.  The power play between Tristan and the client to squeeze more money out of him is diabolical to watch.  Tristan is constantly in control but there were a few flashes where you could sense Jared getting the upper hand.  The two of them mesh beautifully together and it would be easy to become addicted to what they offer.  Overall, the scene reeks of sexual tension, and even when they reach the end you can't help but want more.

This is a story merely meant to titillate.  There's nothing thoughtprovoking or profound, it's merely sex.  The sex though is written very HOT and has a flow that allows for the sexual tension to escalate where the reader is just as into it as the client.  Those looking for Shakespeare look elsewhere, this is pure sexual fun and for my hour I too got more than my money's worth.

My rating for this is a B.
