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.

This is another perfect length “bathtub book” from Lily G. Blunt. Just long enough for an enjoyable read and short enough that you can read in your bathtub before the water gets cold.
The premise for this one is exciting and promising. A gay man with no sexual experience hires a male escort to show him the ropes of gay sex before he goes on his first date. It reminds me of a condensed version of the smoking hot Bonds of Denial by Lynda Aicher. But while Bonds of Denial was a fully fleshed out novel with a spectacular HEA, The Perfect Size for You is a short story that ends with a HFN. It was hot and had some romance, but ended just when things were getting interesting. This is often the case with short stories but was particularly hard to swallow because the characters were so interesting and I was really enjoying their story.
In summary, this is a great quick-and-dirty romance with a disappointing ending. Maybe there will be a sequel? We can hope!
About the Author
Lily G. Blunt writes contemporary gay romance. She loves to explore the relationship between two men and the intensity of their physical and emotional attraction. Angst often features in her stories as she feels this demonstrates the depth of the men’s feelings for each other. Lily is forever writing imaginary scenes and plots in her head, but only a few ever make it to the page—there never seems to be enough hours in the day despite having left the teaching profession to concentrate on her writing!
Lily discovered the wonderful world of m/m romance novels five years ago via fan fiction and went on to write stories in her spare time. With the encouragement of her friends and readers she decided to publish some of her work. Lily subsequently self-published several stories via Amazon. She later published short stories and is excited about joining Pride Publishing for her upcoming story, The Handyman Can.
Easily distracted from her writing, Lily makes videos using clips from gay-themed movies and posts gorgeous pictures of men kissing or making out on her tumblr and Facebook pages. Lily is also an avid supporter of GLBTQ rights and advocates equality for all. She was recently a steward for Pride in London.
Lily lives in central England with her rather bemused husband and a ‘mad as a bag of frogs’ Shetland Sheepdog called Barney.
