Blurb:

Lawrence, aka Lark, worked his way through college by dressing up like Madonna and voguing onstage. After graduation, Lawrence went looking for a real job, and met George. His new lover wanted a straight-acting partner, in business and in bed, so Lawrence gave up drag, and let George run the show.

The love relationship fizzles, but the event planning business thrives. HiJinks books a big job and both men hope it will rain referrals so they can part company. At the last minute, the entertainment bails, and Lark makes a comeback. The drag queen plays out a sexy scene on the dance floor with dinner guest, Oliver Ford. George is fuming, and willing to do anything to get rid of Lark—even if it means putting him up on the block at a slave auction.

My View:

The second book in The Underground Series and definitely my favourite so far.

Lark means a lot to Lawrence. His alter ego drag persona got him through college when money was tight but when he met George who would become his business partner and lover Lark was retired as George despised her.

George and Lawrence are no longer lovers, they can barely stand each other but for business purposes they still share an apartment and spend quite a lot of time together.

There latest contract is a big deal and Lawrence is determined Lark should be part of it. George is furious and a bit of an ass about it but the men at the party love her and can’t keep their hands off her. Oliver is one of the men attending the party and he is more than enamoured with Lark and is determined to see the woman and the man underneath become his.

The sex scene is still underground with the corrupt Police force controlling things. George is mad after Lawrence’s behaviour at the party and sets out to teach him a lesson. When he signs the next business deal Lawrence is part of the contract which will see him been auctioned as a slave.
