Summary On Goodreads:
If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it's cheaper to rent it.
After driving James Harcourt, his wealthy banker boss, around for a year and a half, Cal isn’t surprised by much anymore. Not even James’s regular trips to Market Garden, London’s most elite gay brothel.
But when James leaves the Garden alone one night and turns to Cal instead, Cal’s floored. After crushing on his boss for ages, it’s his wet dream come true . . . until the awkward morning after. Cal still has a job to do, but he wants to offer more. Yet James doesn’t take him up on it; he keeps Cal at arm’s length and continues his chauffeured jaunts to Market Garden.
As Cal learns what James needs from the rentboys, he tries to fill that need himself. But there’s more to James’s penchant for rentboys than Cal realizes, and it may be one role that Cal can’t fill without overstepping his duty.

"I've driven you around, but I've..."
James wasn't looking into his eyes. He was watching his lips.
His fingers twitched a little on Cal's cheek, just the subtlest cue to come closer.
Cal hesitated. "James, you barely know me."
"And after eighteen months"- oh God, James was pulling him in- "that seems like a real shame, doesn't it?"
What better way to get back your lost "reading mojo" than to read a book by one of your favorite authors. I don't know how I got convinced that this will be Rolex' story, but it's not. This is story about Red Tie a.k.a James & Callum, the wealthy businessman and one of the regular customers in Market Garden & his naughty driver who apparently showed up in the 2nd book about Spencer and Nick -If It Fornicates (Market Garden Series, #4) - yes, the only book of these series that I still haven't read, because I wasn't that much into Nick & Spencer and I'm still not. The biggest reason for that is probably because them two are quite deep into the BDSM scene or to be exact- Dom/sadist feat. Sub/masochist and I'm not one of those hardcore BDSM fans, that's why these book are not one of my favs in the series.
James & Callum were a lighter version when it comes to BDSM, and yes, they were hot together, but still, they only made me more convinced that taking someone's orders in bedroom or out and me will probably never go along, lol. At the same time it was interesting to read for a change about something that's not usually on top of my list and find out more about bdsm. I would have probably liked the story more if I didn't feel that James was cold and selfish asshole throughout the book and that the affection between them was mostly one-sided, mainly Cal's. I liked the story, but I just didn't feel that much of connection between them, so the ending in my opinion after everything that James put Cal through wasn't convincing. The thing that fans of the series will love is the reappearing of other Market Garden characters : Nick & Spencer and I must say even though their story isn't one of my favs, Nick turned out to be one of the most entertaining characters in this story.
"How did you turn into a Dom?"
"I'm a sexual sadist. Born that way, I'm afraid, chains and all." Nick chuckled.
"Bad brain chemistry, something wrong during pregnancy, maybe I'm one step away from being a psychopath. As long as I don't do anything outside of consent- even though I'd be perfectly capable of it- I'm good."
Bottom line- this installment in the Market Garden series was again fun, emotional, provocative & way too hot, not among my favs, but I did like the story, and if you enjoyed Nick & Spencer's story, I have no doubt you'll love this one too!
