Tired of his life's endless grind, family man Michael Maguire allows himself one night of deviation. Desperate for something different, he seeks a prostitute in notorious Brixton Park. But Michael, searching for a girl out of PRETTY WOMAN, instead finds blue-eyed, beautiful James Campbell. Tempted and stirred in ways he never imagined, Michael embarks on a sexual adventure with a rent boy from London's infamous Bethnal Green. And what begins as a purely sexual exchange gradually transforms into something else, as James finds himself in desperate circumstances and Michael is moved to help. Drawn increasingly to James, Michael finds himself facing up to the iniquities in his daily life. And finally he must deal with a horror that threatens to explode Michael's safe, conventional existence.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT is the second book I have read by S.A. Reid and she really has a special talent for lightening up the darkest of tales. Ms. Reid has a unique voice telling stories that you can't help but get sucked into.
The tale she tells is a common one of a man unsatisfied with his life...existing in a fog of mediocrity from day to day until he finally succumbs to his desires and seeks some sexual relief and gratification in the form of a prostitute. What he finds is so much greater than he could have ever imagined. Michael ventures out in search of his own Pretty Woman, but ends up with a young man who ultimately rocks his world - physically and emotionally.
SOMETHING DIFFERENT isn't all lightness and sweet, though there are parts that are. It is a little dark and sad - it's an emotional read. The story really delves into how Michael's actions affect his family life, his work life and his overall state of mind. When he finds his "something different", it truly changes his life. I was actually surprised at the turn of events and loved how the secondary character stories played out.
Check out SOMETHING DIFFERENT for a wonderful story that will make you second-guess your preconceived notions about prostitutes and cheaters - it will take you on a bit of an emotional roller coaster, but ultimately leave you feeling happy about the journey.
