Oh no what happened? Things were travelling along really well Interesting and believable story line and then the last 10% It's a story about a young straight ex marine's introduction into Gay for Pay porn Down on his luck Eli is taken under the wing of a veteran Hamish who shows him the ins and outs pun intended to making a living in the industry It is well researched and I can imagine that this is very much how things are done when starting out and filming various scenes There's a lot than one thinks In becoming the next Colby KellerLevi Karter I did like how the author broke down the whole concept of porngay and the issue of labels“I hate putting labels on anyone” he said “but technically most people define being gay as anyone who has relations with the same sex And maybe that’s true for the masses However in my opinion being gay might be what you are but it doesn’t define who you areAnd in its basic of porn terms“A blow job is a blow job and a warm hole is a warm hole Once you get over the taboo of having sex with another man you realize that sex is sex it’s all the same and you’re home free”I didn't uite feel the connection between the two MCs but this was only a minor glitch Where the wheels fell off for me was the 'suspensedrama' side of things view spoilerhaving a stalker or two come from completely left field hide spoiler I would like to start by saying that it's been a long time since I've read such good smutMan the hotness level reaches critical levels It bas basically reading porn instead of watching it SCORCHING HOTThen why 3 starts you ask? Well then the 80% percent mark happened and it's all downhill from there There's a plot twist that was completely unnecessary from my point of view I mean Why? Why? view spoilera stalker situation happens gah hide spoiler 25 starsBR with my girls Karen Tara and Elsbeth Spoilers ahead I am angry at this book Really angryThis book started out great We have Eli and Hamish who meet in the gay for pay business Eli is struggling with his feelings about having sex with men for money while he’s not gay so he takes it slow He starts with a solo job and works his way up to the real sexSo far so goodI wasn’t sure how the whole gay for pay thing would be explained But I was happy with how the subject was handled “I hate putting labels on anyone” he said “but technically most people define being gay as anyone who has relations with the same sex However in my opinion being gay might be what you are but it doesn’t define who you are Most guys come into this biz thinking they are most definitely straight including myself but most of us leave identifying as bisexual” Hamish looks out for Eli and the two form a great friendship When they have their first scene together it was so hot my underwear caught fireSo I was feeling very content about this book so farBut then at 80% it suddenly all went downhill Let me list the things that bugged me Bigtime We get angst major angst Eli cannot wrap his head around the fact that he has feelings for Hamish but feels that he is not gay So he tells Hamish they cannot see each other any These guys go from being friends to being angry with each other all the time The guys are threatened by some crazy stalker all of a sudden I felt this could have been completely left out It did not make sense to introduce us to this story line at 80% The police get involved and make totally unrealistic conclusions based on a hunch When Hamish goes out for a run Eli is scared something happened to him Hamish promised him he wouldn’t go out alone So Eli gets so angry with him he punches him Right in the face How on earth is that okay? If you are angry at someone you don’t go around hitting them I don’t care that both of them are men After the big stalker scene everything is suddenly alright They say ‘I love you’ and all is forgiven The end scene with the kidnapping and the HEA literally lasts 8 pages A bit would have been nice There was a lot of unfinished business It was very confusingThis book could have been a 4 star book for me but now it only gets 25 stars and even that is stretching it The last 20% just sucked big timeI am not happy OMG What a Hot ReadScotty Cade did his work Gay for pay as well as our military jargon Terms This storyline was hard for me being I was in the same position as Eli processing out of the Military Army only 2 days ago to simply begin reserve duty It felt to close for comfort I am very glad I decided to read this I found it to be a bit refreshing Just knowing it could be worse and just get betterI totally enjoyed this read My heart went for Eli love at first read But I must say Hamish was my absolute FAV Sigh And the HOT smexy scenes YumI always believe someone is always looking out for us and right on time Royce appeared in a time of need I love that partI enjoyed the well written plot straight Marine in desperate times Mind you this is at no fault of his However The gift of fault goes totally to the grubby greedy parents shoot them Eli is left with little choice for survival – which is where gay for pay porn begins Love the stalker storyline I found plenty of cops action and guns fun fun funMilitary storylines I am often critical in this sector So I must say once again Scotty Cade did his work well I found one thing that made me smile when Royce called Eli a Soldier yeah I know he is a Marine “Semper Fi “ Remember Royce was Army so like me In the real world I do that often So once again I smile Scotty kept it real The rainbow in that end the end we are all one family out to save our little section of the worldOh and speaking of the end I absolutely loved the sweet sweet ending SCOTTY CADE WELL DONE HOOAH I came into this with high hopes but they were dashedBoth MCs were likeable enough and initially the chemistry and banter was excellentI am sure that the porn side was realistic I have no experience so I'm just guessing here and it was hot no doubt about that but while my organs may have engaged my head did notOnce the guys discovered they may have feelings for each other 3 weeks i desperately wanted 'something' to happen that wasn't sex be careful what you wish forThen thrown onto the mix was relationship angst gay angst plus a ridiculous plot twist that seemed solely insert into the book to bring everything to a swift conclusion Overall clichéd and disappointing This was a bit of surprise for me in the best way I completely expected the heat The gay for pay thing never gets old but often it stops with the heat This one followed through with depth and emotion The emotions Eli felt made sense to me and served to allow me to connect with him and Hamish I read it for the potential points for a challenge and walked away a fan of this author All military men gay for pay porn? Nice uick steamy story with not a lot of substance But that's okay Sometimes you are in need of some steamI never really felt the love Friendship maybe but not loveStill it was a nice break from reality and I enjoyed it OKI was actually laughing out loud at the cafe this morning waiting for my coffee finishing off this bookI liked it I mean I read it right through and finished itbut that huge laugh at the end probably wasn’t supposed to happenEli straight out of the military has been royally screwed over by his folks he’s down to his last scrap of money with little prospect of work when he is approached by a guy to come do a bit of gay military porn as always when I read these scenarios I thank God for the Australian welfare systemanywaya porn career awaitsThings begin escalate and surprisingly he finds himself making a stronger connection with a co star Hamish than he ever expectedThe story unfolds uite well the pacing is good and the characters are unveiled and connections made The sex scenes are formulaic but it is reflective of what they’re doing – it’s a porn shoot and you realise how much of a “job’ this is to these guys It’s the lack of connection that makes the sex scenes appear prescriptive you knowif you’ve ever watched gay pornor something the portrayal of this was uite goodThings kind of dipped right into the melodramatic after that view spoiler The threat set up was OK but then the pacing and interaction between Hamish and Eli seemed a bit off once they were at Hamish’s house The cooking was weird I find American cooking descriptions so strange anyway broil is so close to boil that I always wonder what the hell you’re doing to your meat– I don’t’ eat canned veges so was just thinking “canned peas???” and mash on the stove? Wouldn’t it catch and burn?” you know all those stupid things that completely take me out of the story Once cooking scenes start that are nothing like I would ever cook I The dialogue seemed kind of false and strange and not consistent to how the characters acted the whole rest of the book the pacing went a bit off hide spoiler It's not been that long since I first heard of gay for pay A few years maybe I know I know I'm naive It had never occurred to me that straight men would or could do gay porn Having a strong military kink myself the description for 'Acting Out' by Scotty Cade instantly appealed When I got into it and saw the closeness this 'family' had for one another it was easy to see that for a number of these men the camaraderie was much like what they had while serving It was comfort and family and they were all doing it for the same reason Money Each of these guys was doing gay porn in order to support themselves or family or both and thus they all made sure to treat one another with respect and no shameEli just got honorably discharged after an eight year stint in Afghanistan as a Marine only to come stateside and discover every ounce of money he'd socked away was used by his parents to fund their alcohol addiction As bad as he wanted to get away from them and life in his small hometown it never occurred to Eli that they'd actually steal from their only child Twelve weeks he's been living in a crappy motel spending every day trying to look for a job in his field or anything actually that he can do but money is running out That's when he meets Royce who tells him about his online hotmilitaryguyscom site and invites Eli to come check them out There Eli meets guys just like himself including Hamish and once Eli sees the pay scale he really has no other choice The next day he moves into the mansion and begins to workEli starts off very very slowly in front of the cameras In fact he's not even sure he'll ever be able to do blow jobs anal or rimming He and Hamish become friends and Hamish answers all the uestions Eli has and some he didn't even know he had And when Eli decides it's time he asks Hamish to take his anal virginity on camera of course Their first time together is skyrocketing hot and even Royce has never seen the like in his ten years of owning an online gay porn site What happens though when the feelings go beyond just friends? And will they get a chance to explore those feelings or will Hamish's stalker have the last word?I really enjoyed this book The author didn't take the easy route and instead allowed the main characters to struggle with their choices and really agonize over how loving another man could change them It was a refreshing change of pace because none of it was easy and it came across as very real I can easily recommend this as a very good bookNOTE This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews 25 stars The main reason this didn't uite reach 3 star status for me was the lack of a connection or chemistry between the guys I just didn't believe it and I'm not sure how much of that was the writing and how much was the narration The narration wasn't bad but it just felt so casual There was only one time that real emotion was brought to a characters voice view spoilerEli crying over Hamish when he thought he'd been shot hide spoiler
