Summary:

Gay for Pay
An All Cocks story

Christopher Allan Roberts thought he had a promising future; Captain of the football team with the promise of a scholarship to play for Alabama. His high school sweetheart and best friend for as long as he could remember, Amanda, by his side, and the love and support of his family. One night, one mistake changed everything. Chris moves to New York, adrift and alone. A walk one night brings him to the flashing lights, loud music and thrumming bodies at club Berlin. A flyer in the men’s room promises fame and fortune for anyone willing to go on camera and have sex, with another man. Money is money, and how hard could it be, right?

Christopher Allan Roberts becomes Kris Alen, All Cocks newest addition, a gay for pay porn star.

Lincoln Carter is honest with everyone in his life, including his family, about who he is and about his sexual preferences. Linc Larson, the openly bi-sexual gay porn star will do anything with anyone, which pretty much writes his ticket in a versatility charged industry. It’s not his sexuality that interferes with his personal life; it’s his inability to trust.

What Linc wants right now, more than anything, is the chance to do a scene with All Cocks newest acquisition, Kris Alen. Six foot two with Auburn hair, an exquisitely toned and inked up body, Kris Alen is sex personified. Linc doesn’t know if it’s the “I want the shiny new toy” aspect that calls to him, or the distant and wounded expression that haunts Kris’s eyes.

Linc figures out early on that Kris is only working the gay for pay angle that All Cocks brings to his bank account. Can a bi-sexual man with trust issues break down the barriers that Kris has built around himself and help Christopher overcome the painful past he is running from.

Gay for Pay is a gay for you story about two men that will have to come to terms with the mistakes they made in their past, if they want to stick around and have a chance at a future.

*Advisory warning. This story briefly mentions issues such as drinking and driving, vehicular manslaughter, someone being drugged, a very brief mention of a previous sexual assault (no descriptives of said assault) these warnings are for anyone that has triggers. They are not a part of the storyline itself, only mentioned here and there.*

Story Review:

Normally for an audio review I would write it up in two separate parts, one for the story and one for the narration but in the case of Gay for Pay I am going to run it all into one.

The story itself was an interesting glimpse into the behind the scenes set up of a gay porn company. Is it realistic? I don’t know but it felt real to me in terms of the story. The company is run by a throuple, I’m still not sure about that word, who have built their company up with a family feel and look after their boys both on and off the set.
Their newest recruit is Chris soon to be known as Kris Alen who joins their team as a gay for pay actor. Chris is down on his luck and sleeping on his best friends couch after his part in his girlfriend’s death five years earlier that has left him on his own and living with a shit ton of guilt. Desperate for some sort of life, desperate for friends and desperate for money he figures sex with another man for a pay cheque will be easy. It’s also his last and only option.

Lincoln is already working for the studio and is immediately attracted to Chris. They slip quite easily into a relationship, even with the problems of the job they are doing and they are open and honest with each other from the start. If this had been an ebook I would have had no problems at all however the narrator, for me, really let this story down.

Tony Clark is a new narrator to me and one I won’t be listening to again. If the story had been longer than four and a half hours I would have stopped listening to it. There was zero emotion in his voice for any of the characters and this book called for emotion. I felt like I was talked at rather than to, his voice was often shouty and I had to go back and re-listen to a few parts. The sex scenes made me cringe and as there are a lot of sex scenes in the book that added up to quite a lot of cringing. If there was ever a book that made you realise how important a good narrator is then this was it.

Although this audio was not a success for me I am still very interested in seeing where the author takes this series and I will certainly continue on with it but it will definitely be via ebook and not on audio.
