Brice is backstage where he can’t see or hear us, while we start with Jeremy. Thanks for playing the Newlywed Game.

Jeremy: Brice and I aren’t actually married. Not yet. We haven’t really even talked about it, even though it’s been legal in California for over a year. Can we still play?

Nosy: Well, I guess that doesn’t matter, technically. Do you want to marry Brice?

Jeremy (blushing): Are we live now? I-uh, I wouldn’t mind it.

Nosy: That’s nice and enthusiastic. Well, let’s get started with the questions! How did you two meet?

Jeremy (blushing again): I was kind of his waiter at this, uh, club.

Nosy: Did he give you a big tip?”

Jeremy (still blushing, looking around nervously): Yes, he did.

Nosy: I see your eyes kind of twinkling there, thinking about that tip.

Jeremy: It was big.

Nosy: Who said “I love you” first?

Jeremy: Brice did. We were in the middle of an argument at the time. I was so mad I didn’t notice until he’d left. Then I was even more mad at him for saying it when I was mad at him.

Nosy: What’s Brice’s favorite snack? Besides you, of course. (Nosy winks)

Jeremy: Post-coital bacon.

Nosy: We all like that, don’t we? And where was your first date?

Jeremy: Oh, that’s tricky.

Nosy: What will Brice say?

Jeremy: He’d say it was at Boulevard, the restaurant in San Francisco.

Nosy: What gets Brice really turned on? Beside the obvious.

Jeremy: If I suck on his earlobes.

Nosy: And does Brice have a favorite outfit he thinks looks best on you?

Jeremy: He’s mentioned he likes me in my cycling shorts.

Nosy: Does Brice think you have enough sex?

Jeremy (coughing): I’m not sure how we could have more. So, yes.

Nosy: How nice for you two. And what’s Brice’s favorite position?

Jeremy: On our sides, him spooning me.

Nosy: Great. Now let’s get Brice in here to see how well you know him!

Brice comes in and sits down next to Jeremy, then gives him a little peck on the cheek.

Nosy: Welcome back, Brice. Did they keep you entertained in the back while I was grilling Jeremy?

Brice: They’re watching porn back there….

Nosy: I can see why with a sexy partner like Jeremy here that porn probably doesn’t much interest you.

Brice: Is that a question?

Nosy: Right, you’re a lawyer. I forgot. No, that’s not an official question. I’m just trying to make conversation here.

(Brice shrugs and glances over at Jeremy)

Nosy: Well, let’s get to the questions then. Brice, how did you and Jeremy meet?

Brice: He was serving me dinner at a men’s club.

Nosy: That’s close. He said he was a waiter, so I’ll give you half a point for that.

Brice. Waiter? Cute. He was not a waiter.

Nosy: Did you give him a tip for his services?

Brice: I think I gave him a handjob. Or was it a blowjob?

(Jeremy shrinks back against the seat) I don’t think that’s what Nosy meant….

Nosy: No, it wasn’t, but I’ll give you an extra point for getting right into the smut for us. And Brice, who said “I love you first?”

Brice: I did.

Nosy: Another point. So, Brice, what’s your favorite snack?

Brice: It’s not really a snack, but they make these amazing meatloaf sandwiches at this diner near our place.

Nosy: I’m sorry. Jeremy said you enjoy post-coital bacon.

Brice: I do. I didn’t think you wanted me to say that in public, Jeremy.

Jeremy (shrugs): You said you gave me a BJ instead of a tip, but you’re balking at mentioning post-coital bacon?

Brice: I guess you’re right. Sorry.

Nosy: It’s all part of the game here! Brice, sweetie, where was your first date?

Brice: Well, that was at the Giants’ game.

Jeremy: It was Boulevard.

Brice: Well, we went there from the game didn’t we?

Nosy: You two don’t seem to remember it the same way. So, let’s move on. What one thing that Jeremy does gets you really turned on?

(Jeremy glares a little at Brice.)

Brice: If he’s breathing, that’s enough for me. But I really like when he sucks on my earlobes.

(Jeremy relaxes and leans closer to Brice.)

Nosy: You’re making up for some lost points. What’s your favorite thing for Jeremy to wear, Brice? I’ve seen that picture of him in the little white shorts, and well, I had to take a cold shower.

Brice: It would have to be the Greek slave-boy outfit he wore when I first saw him. There’s not much to it, just some very short, sheer fabric. When he puts that on for me, I wouldn’t even notice an earthquake.

Nosy: Well, Jeremy thought you were fond of his cycling shorts. And what’s your favorite position, Brice?

Brice: That’s easy. I love when he’s sitting on my lap so I can see his face, see how much he’s enjoying it. And so I can kiss him.

(Jeremy looks a little misty)

(Brice leans over and kisses him slowly)

Nosy: Brice? Jeremy? Hello, boys? Well, even though they didn’t get all the questions right, it’s clear these two are crazy about each other. In my book, that makes them winners. Okay, the show’s over. Yoohoo, Brice, Jeremy? Time to go…..

Synopsis

Jeremy Linden’s a PhD student researching an HIV vaccine. He’s always short of money, and when biotech startup PharmaTek reduces funding for his fellowship, he’s tempted to take a job at a men’s dining club as a serving boy. The uniforms are skimpy, and he’s expected to remove an item of clothing after each course. He can handle that, but he soon discovers there’s more on the menu here than fine cuisine. How far will he go to pay his tuition, and will money get in the way when he realizes he’s interested in more from one of his gentlemen?

Brice Martin is an attorney for a Silicon Valley venture capital firm. When he’s asked to take a client to the infamous Dinner Club, he finds himself unexpectedly turned on by the atmosphere and especially by his server, Remy. He senses there’s more to the sexy young man than meets the eye. The paradox fascinates him, and he can’t get enough of Remy.

Their relationship quickly extends beyond the club and sex. But the trust and affection they’ve worked to achieve may crumble when Jeremy discovers Brice’s VC firm is the one that pulled the plug on PharmaTek—and Jeremy’s research grant.

Liza’s Review

Jeremy was down on his luck. He was smart, in his fifth year of a PhD in molecular biology, specializing in immunology and he had gotten a research fellowship to work on an HIV vaccine. But the money only covered basic bills and things like the repairs he needed to do on his car, just weren't covered.

Enter the Dinner Club. Seemed simple enough, at least to Jeremy. Wander around in a skimpy costume, serving color coded clients and remove one piece of the costume per course. But from his first night on the job, Jeremy could see things could get a lot more heated with his special client, if he let it happen.

Mr. Green was fucking gorgeous.

Mr. Green, normally known as Brice, wasn't sure that he even wanted to be at the Dinner Club, having been dragged along by a work colleague. After an initially awkward start things between him and Jeremy, who Brice knew a Remy, seemed to go well, but when Brice is offered a 'night cap,' all he could think was how to get out of the whole situation.

The whole situation portrayed in the book seemed a bit surreal, but I could see where a place like this could be a real hit. Both Brice and Jeremy were shy enough initially to make things a bit awkward, and the author described that really well. But it was hot as well, in that 'you know you shouldn't but you can't stop reading' type of way. And OMG it got worse. Anything I tell you would be a spoiler but less than halfway through the book I wanted to hit Brice with something really heavy.

Part of the thrill, for the customers and servers at the Dinner Club is the exhibition angle - something that usually makes me uncomfortable when I read it. But that was a huge part of the book, and the author handled it really well. The concept of sex for money was the real sticking point for both men in this book, and the way the author let the reader see both sides of the equation was both interesting and well done.

That's how whores worked, Brice reminded himself. Why had he ever thought Remy was more?...Why did it disappoint him so much?

There were a couple of Pretty Women references in the plot and in some respects they did apply. But this was definitely a man on man story, and there was a lot of that going on. Personally I would have liked to have read more about the other interactions between Jeremy and Brice, but most of what was described was the creative sex the two men enjoyed together. The secondary characters like Kit and Law were interesting but didn't overshadow the story line, although I would have loved to know what made Kit tick. Overall this is a very sexy, and almost edgy story that had me wishing for the HEA from about the middle of the book, but that kept me waiting for it right up until the last page.

Favorite quote. {Remy/Jeremy}

"You going to fuck me by telepathy?"

  7. I would say somewhere in between... There is time for sweet and for sexy, isn't there?

  8. My kids call me the Smut Queen. I like it VERY sexy, but that doesn’t mean the smut can’t be driven by intense emotional heat. So, I say, let’s have it all – passion and hot sex and true love. I loved the excerpt I read toward the end of last year, and this little Newlywed Game thing was brilliant! Best of luck with the release!
