Blurb: A male escort takes on an inexperienced client and breaks the first rule of rent boys: don’t get attached.
After updating his Rent Boy blog profile, well-endowed porn star Ty receives a text from a sexually inexperienced client. Andy, the client, asks Ty to provide him with the necessary know-how so should he ever get a date with the guy he’s attracted to, he’ll be fully prepared.
Little does Ty know that this hookup will lead to a friendship that will subsequently change his life.

Review: I always have mixed feeling about reading short stories/novellas. On the one hand, they’re the perfect length to sit back and take in a story in its entirety (I hate how work and life force me to interrupt a good story). On the other hand, it’s difficult to fully develop characters and their relationships in a short amount of space.
In Finding Love: The Perfect Size for You, Ms. Blunt managed to deliver an awesome bite-sized story. To start with, the premise of a rent boy is hot. I find the idea of anonymous encounters to be rather alluring. Add to that the humanizing of the escort, Ty, by showing that just because someone works in porn and sells sex for money, it doesn’t mean they aren’t a real person with feelings.
The other protagonist, Andy, was also well developed, initially depicted as a geeky, inexperienced, nerd who was looking to practice his sex skills so he wouldn’t make a fool of himself when he finally landed the man he was interested in.
What really did it for me in this story was the sex. It isn’t often that I experience an erotic romance where the author really takes his or her time explicitly drawing out each moment. The sensations, tastes, even smells were delivered with precision, and I was glad that I was alone as I read them since I would have made myself, and everyone else, embarrassed by my body’s physical reaction.
There really isn’t anything I can say as a criticism to this story. It was fun, fast-paced, and surpassed my expectations. So if you’re on the run and looking for a hot read with a capital HOT, this is definitely the book for you.
