Nineteen years old, disowned, and stripped of family funds, Chaz Miller is just trying to survive. It’s a good thing he’s got skills—his cocksucking will come in a handy when he lands a noteworthy and steady john. But after being busted, Chaz finds an unexpected benefactor in Vice Detective Chris Conley, who gets him into a prostitute rehabilitation program. Now Chaz needs to redeem himself… so he can find a permanent place in Chris’s arms
Chaz had to do despicable things to survive after he had been kicked out by his family for being gay. He could not afford to go to school anymore so he took to the streets and a life as a hooker in order to eat. He lived in a cardboard box and $10 tricks were the only way out for him. He couldn’t find a job because he had no bathroom facilities to make himself look presentable for an interview and no telephone for call backs. Then he found the perfect customer in between all the other men he serviced – someone who came by regularly to avail himself of Chaz’s services, who was not only good looking, but clean, and also paid double the going rate.
What Chaz didn’t know until one fateful day was that his customer is Vice Detective Chris Conley! Chaz was furious when he found out and thought he had been betrayed because Chris gave him up when all the other hookers were arrested, but Chris turned out to be Chaz’s benefactor.
I liked this story because although Chris helped himself to Chaz, he also wanted to give him an opportunity at a better life, and the author built up the connection between the two protagonists to show that maybe there could be a future for them together. The pace was fast and non-stop and the characters were appealing. Obviously, given Chaz’s “career,” he was very experienced in giving pleasure so the action was hot and frequent and he clearly loved his job.
I enjoyed this story immensely and I think you will too. If you’re looking for a very short, hot story with well defined, three dimensional characters, Pull by Bryl R. Tyne should be on your To Buy list. Definitely recommended.
