Spencer is in a rut. Long hours at the law firm are sucking the life out of him, and he doesn’t have time or energy for a relationship. He’s lonely, horny, and itching for something new, so he tries the Market Garden, an exclusive—and expensive—brothel. Spencer isn’t in the door five minutes before a cocky rentboy makes his move.
Nick isn’t just any rentboy, though. He’s a Dom, he’s a sadist, and he’s everything Spencer didn’t know he was missing. One night turns into more, and before long, Spencer is one of Nick’s regular clients.
Both men think they’re just scratching each other’s backs: Spencer’s exploring a submissive, masochistic side he never knew he had, and Nick is getting off and getting paid. But as time goes on, it’s clear their strictly professional arrangement ... isn’t, and if Nick has one hard limit, it’s that he doesn’t get romantically entangled with his johns. The problem is, while Nick doesn't want to be owned, Spencer’s no longer content with just renting.

Pretty much loved this story. Nick and Spencer were both very likable characters I totally want to see more of. They made kind of an odd pairing, in the very good sense.
This had a very good mixture of plot, smut and emotions. I felt neither cramped in nor rushed through, and again, Nick and Spencer are just one hell of a good pairing. I especially liked how those two connected: both hot and fast in the sexual way, as well as tentatively slow on the emotional front. Just so cute!
I'm glad to know that If It Fornicates (Market Garden 4) is featuring those two again, and I'm looking forward to read it!
