Publisher's Summary

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 bisexual 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 bisexual 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?

Quick, entertaining story

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the story for the most part. My main complaint is the story jumps from 2010 to 2015 with very little information given about the time in between. For example, it mentions a trial, but I don’t remember it mentioning whether or not Chris went to jail. I wish I’d gotten a little more information and background. I felt like that would have given me a better grasp of the character.

Other than that, I liked the setup, the supporting characters, that there’s definitely a plot, and not all porn (which was great) and I definitely wouldn’t mind continuing the series.

For the narration, I’ll admit I did have some trouble following along, mostly because I kept getting pulled out of the story by Tony Clark’s pacing, tone, tempo, character voices. It’s not that Clark does a bad job, I’ve heard worse believe me, but I didn’t connect with him as the narrator.

Bottom line: A quick, entertaining story with heat, but definitely check out the sample of the narrator before buying the audio.

Porn with Plentiful Plot!

Where does Gay for Pay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Gay for Pay is the best audiobook that I've listened to so far. I was looking for a quick wank, but was surprised to find a charming story with lovable characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gay for Pay?

I loved all of the comedic dialogues between the guys.

Have you listened to any of Tony Clark’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first Tony Clark performance I've listed to, and I found it to be fluid and evoking a sultry leather-filled lounge.

Any additional comments?

Buy it. Listen to it. Love it!!

Gay for pay

Any additional comments?

I really liked this audiobook.I listen to this all in one sitting and wish it were longer because I really loved getting to know these characters. This is a story about love, loss, regret, loneliness, letting go and second chances at new love. Very good story and narration.

Great story good narration

Kris kills his girlfriend by driving drunk in his last year of high school. He loses all his friends, family, the scholarship, everything. He’s devastated and broke. While living on friends’ couches in New York he finds Gay For Pay and decides to go for it – he’s got nothing to lose.

Linc is happy with his life as a bi-sexual porn star – but leery of relationships since his last boyfriend cheated on him with one of his co-stars.

They don’t hook up right away, but instead become friends. As that friendship grows so do their feelings. Even in this industry, they manage to keep sex out of their relationship for a very long time. When Kris finally admits to his feelings, Linc is already right there with him.

The question now is – where do they go from here?

**

This was such a surprising book! It was not at all what I was expecting. Having read a few “gay for pay porn” books, I was expecting Kris and Linc to be hooked up from the start and for them to fall for one another that way. Instead… Gabe is the wonderfully sweet guy who introduces Kris to his gay porn career and he ends up really being a great friend.

I loved the seemingly honest look at gay for pay that we get here. Kris struggles to stay hard at times, he still wants to date women, he likes Gabe because he’s so feminine in nature… but he truly likes Linc as a person and that’s what initially attracts him.

I think this is one of the few books out there that put forth a compelling “demi-sexual” story in that I do believe Kris is NOT gay. He loves Linc for Linc and not guys in general. Sure, you can call him bi-sexual in that he eventually comes to enjoy both gay and het sex but in terms of romance I think he’s a demi-sexual.

The sequels are already published – YAY! – and show an interesting “pre-quel” to the throuple that is Kris’ boss and his partners – which makes me psyched because I had wanted to know more about them as they were introduced. The third book is the slutty Kory who steals Linc’s beau but it looks like he gets redemption.

I’m excited to read the next two books and highly recommend this.

4.5 of 5 stars (there were some editing and grammatical mistakes that take it from a 5 star, but minor.)

Audio

Tony Clark is a new narrator for me and he does a nice job of giving each person a unique voice and he attempts both the southern accent of Kris and the Eastern European accent of Victory bravely! There are times when he’s a bit flat in terms of emotion but not enough to detract from the overall enjoyment of this as an audiobook.

Again, highly recommended.

Sorry, just not very good

This is a gay romance about a straight guy who decides to do a gay for pay job. You'd expect really hot sex, some self discovery, maybe some insight into the gay porn industry.

This book offers none of these things. Sex is really dull and unimaginative, lame story line and clearly not accurate in portraying the industry.

Narration lacked any kind of passion, although I have to admit he had little to work with.

I wish Audible would qualify/screen some of these stories better. There are so many standout authors such as ZA Maxfield and others.

Sorry, hate giving terrible reviews, just don't want people to waste money.

Hot men...what more is there to say?

Having the main character already friends with a gay male, it makes the transition for him more believable. Although he did seem to go from just modelling to getting it on with gusto quite quickly, it didn't seem wrong or forced. The storyline was dealt with in a way that was an easy listen and drew you in with the descriptive writing. Having Tony Clark's nice voice to listen to didn't hurt either.

4 Hot n Charming Stars

This book is the now in my top 5 favorite MM books. I loved the narrator!!!! < is that enough !! maybe I should add more.

Ok Ok seriously, Kris hasn't had an easy time with love. Because of tragedy, he shuts himself down emotional so he can’t/won’t lose someone else he loves.
He has the chance to take a job as porn star but in the gay side of it. He will make more money and just because he is straight, he isn't the only one who is in the industry.

Jordan another straight actor takes Kris under his wing to show him the ropes so to speak. In the meantime Kris is getting to be pretty friendly with the rest of the crew and actors. It’s like one big family.

He starts to notice Lincoln, and although Kris isn’t gay he starts to get a little jealous.
Watching Chris understands his own emotions and not everything is black and white. It’s special and makes you feel for the guy.

Opening up to someone isn’t easy not after his loss but watching this man struggle with genuine emotion and love of another human being; it tugs at your heart strings.
I great story of finding not only yourself, but accepting of one’s self too. Great love story.

P.S. There is Gay Love in this book... That’s your warning ;) Enjoy I know I did!

Did not finish half way. Flat narration and story

Would you try another book from T M Smith and/or Tony Clark?

I have read Survivor by TM Smith, which WAY better. I would read other books by this author.The narrator is just doing a straight reading (other than a few unimpressive accents) with no animation, inflection, or energy. I'd probably skip him in the future. I notice Joel Leslie narrated the other books in this Series and might give one a try to see if a different narrator helps.

Any additional comments?

​The writing style is mostly telling, not showing or through dialogue. The first 35% felt like a documentary about this industry, but I've read other stories (like First by K.C. Wells) that did a way better job of dramatizing and integrating similar scenes and issues. There's also a ton of characters (to set up the series) that made the story and characters meander into a jumble that I couldn't connect with.By 50% when the romance finally started to unfold, I had grown tired of listening to the narrator and wasn't invested in the main characters enough to care that they got together. If you're interested in the story, try reading the book.

I liked it, but the narrator didn't do it justice.

One of my co-reviewers has raved about this series, so when I saw that some of the installments were available as part of Audible's Romance Package, I decided to give it a try. I enjoyed Kris's story. I felt badly for the young man who lost everything over a stupid decision that far too many people -- and not just young people -- make on a daily basis. His guilt was made worse by his family's reaction, so I was glad to see that he had such a good friend in Michael. When Kris decides to meet with Viktor, of A.C. (see series title), I was glad to see how the author showed his doubts and concerns, rather than making him overconfident in the interview as it added to the realism of Kris's story. Viktor's decision to assign Kris another gay-for-pay actor as a mentor provided a plausible way for some of the more technical details and the "things you want to know but were always afraid to ask" questions covered, sometimes in a very amusing manner.

Because the story is told from the different characters' points of view, we learn pieces of information as they do. This is particularly interesting when it comes to Kris's realization that he had developed feelings for Lincoln. I would have expected a few more hints along the way, before the "Ohmigod, I'm attracted to Lincoln!" revelation occurred -- even if they were just fleeting thoughts. Then again, I may have missed some cues by listening to the audiobook rather than reading the novel.

While I enjoyed the story, I'm not as big of a fan of narration. Tony Clark does a nice job in his narration; however, there were a few times that I couldn't tell who was speaking or whose head I was in because he slipped out of character occasionally. Fortunately, the author provided plenty of well-spaced cues to identify the speaker, but the voice slips did pull me out of the story a couple of times. I will continue with the series as I'm interested to see whose story is next and hopeful that with family-style relationships being built among the owners and employees of A.C., that I'll get to see more of Kris and Lincoln and how their relationship is progressing.

NOTE: I listened to this title via Audible's Romance Package.

The book was better

I have to admit that it took me a couple of chapters to remember the story, but my mind doesn't remember the book being quite this painful.

The story is probably a 3½ star rating, but the narration almost made this my first dnf audiobook. The basic story telling was fine, even normal most of the time. But the characters were awful, and the conversations were stilted and unnatural sounding. The vocal inflections made me cringe; and I wanted to pull my earbuds out during any sex scenes.

I don't usually give such a negative review, but I have listened to literally hundreds of audiobooks, and there have been some real doozies. But this one really detracted from the story, and did a disservice to a decent first book in a series.

My advice: read the book.
I am going to listen to the next two books because I have already bought them as they were on matchmaker, and they are narrated by the incredible Mr. Joel Leslie.

I am sorry, Tony Clark, but you just really did not do it for me with this one.
