BDSM, Erotic Romance, LGBTQ
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.

IF IT FLIES takes us back to Market Garden, an exclusive London club that rents out pleasure to the well-to-do.
For this trip to Market Garden we get a closer look at Nick, a rentboy who was briefly introduced in an earlier story. Nick tends to cater to a particular type of client as he finds his greatest pleasure through domination and pain. When Spencer reluctantly tags along with a friend to Market Garden, he has no idea what he's getting into.
When Nick spots Spencer, he immediately recognizes the submissive in him, even if Spencer does not. Nick quickly helps Spencer discover the thrill and pleasure of having a Dom, or having Spencer as a Dom. Nick offers to make Spencer one of his regulars so he can truly train Spencer in what it means to be a submissive. When the dynamics of their relationship start to shift, Nick is freaked out and runs, leaving Spencer wondering if they can find a balance or if they are better off apart.
I am completely and thoroughly enjoying this unique and fun series. I found this third installment to be a bit darker and the emotions to be a bit stronger than in the previous stories.
This is Spencer's first D/s relationship and it is the first time Nick has opened himself up to the thought of something more than a paid relationship; they are both experiencing some strong, unfamiliar emotions. The authors really capture the inner turmoil experienced by both of these characters and the insecurities they will have to overcome to stand any chance together.
I am anxiously anticipating reading more about the relationship between these two men and discovering if they can pull off happily, unconventionally, ever after.
