ARC Review: On the Clock by L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov

On the Clock (Market Garden, #8)From the blurb:
When Blake Raleigh’s favorite rentboys retire from Market Garden, they’re sure their friend Jason will be a perfect replacement. Though Tristan and Jared are a tough act to follow, Blake returns to London to test out their recommendation. 
Jason is right on the money. Negotiations turn him on. Getting paid turns him on. The higher the stakes, the hotter things get. Each trip to London is more expensive than the last, and the webcam sessions don’t run cheap, but Jason is well worth the sticker shock. 
The more time they spend together, the more Blake wants, and not just sex and transactions. But Jason’s been burned before by men who thought they were in love with him, and he’s not making that mistake again. When the lines between personal and professional start to blur, it’s going to take more than money, jewelry, and sports cars to keep Jason from clocking out and walking away.




Heather's rating:





I'm a huge, HUGE fan of the Market Garden series, with my favorites of the bunch being Nick and Spenser's books. I think I had some crazy high expectations for Rolex's story and though this one is sexy like you'd imagine from a Market Garden book, it isn't quite the revelation that I was expecting.

Anyone who has read a book in this series knows Rolex. Super high-roller who loves to watch others get it on ring a bell? I was waiting to get to know the man behind the watch, and I was really curious how L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov would portray him.

This book is told just from Rolex's (aka, Blake Raleigh) point of view, which I ended up feeling was a bad move. While I enjoyed the mystery behind just seeing Blake's POV, I also didn't feel like I got to know Jason, emotionally.

Jason is a rent boy who LOVES his job. The reason? He has a money kink.



That's right, a money kink. Getting paid for sex is a huge turn on for him, and the more money he gets, the more he gets turned on.

I liked Jason but I didn't feel like I got to know him at all. Part of the problem was not getting his POV, and part of the problem was that the story felt too short to develop the type of feelings that this book wanted from us.

Though this book lacked in the relationship development department, what it didn't lack for was sex appeal. Holy. God.



I think I popped one of my kink cherries in this book, at least, I've never read this particular kink in my memory. Double penetration, oh yeeeaaah. If you are a fan of strictly monogamous sex between MCs, this book really isn't for you.

While this book delivered on the heat factor, it might be my least favorite book in the Market Garden series, which isn't saying that much because I think I average over 4 stars for the series. Though I wanted a bit more from this one, I think most fans of this series will still be pretty pleased.
