book blurb

Victor Dimir moved to America with his traditional Romanian parents when he was just a child. His Romani parents taught him their traditions and how to be a shrewd business man. But it was the attention of a classmate at school that taught a teenage Victor about his sexuality. When he came out to his parents he knew it would be difficult for them to understand, but he never expected them to disown him.

Andrew Jones grew up with a single mom and his grandmother teaching him about life, he had an absentee father at best. The only thing the man ever did for Andy that stuck was buy him a camera for his thirteenth birthday. When Andrew went off to college on a scholarship to study photo journalism, he wound up falling in love with his Romanian roommate.

They became inseparable and wound up starting their own business together; a gay porn website where people could go and watch romantic gay porn instead of the rough and tough, or wham bam thank you man crap that was flooding the internet at that time. After ten years together they were still perfectly happy, they didn’t even realize something was missing, until they met a broken young man that needed a family.

Matthew Carlson was homeless, jobless and broken. He’d been on his own since he was sixteen when he ran away from home after being brutally assaulted by several other young men that he thought were his friends, and then being told he brought it on himself for being gay by his parents. Matthew has done a lot of things these last few years just to get by. When he finds the flyer for All Cocks, he decides to call and see where it leads. What has he got to lose?

Matthew has deep rooted scars that aren’t usually visible on the outside. But when he walks into All Cocks, both Victor and Andrew see them, they also see him. Can three men that didn’t even realize they needed each other get past the stigma of society to find a place of happiness, together?

my review

4 Stars

I was so excited to read this book!! When I first met Matthew, Victor and Andrew, I was very curious and intrigued by this trio of hot men who are all clearly in love with one another.  Fame and Fortune, their romance, is the second book in the All Cocks Series (Gay for Pay, which was an awesome introduction the fabulous men of All Cocks – a gay porn site, should probably be read first.) and it is awesome.

It was fun getting a glimpse of Victor and Andrew as they first met and fell in love.  Their feelings and commitment to one another and the life they made together is spectacular.  They slowly created this family and safe haven for so many people, so I wasn’t surprised when they wanted to help Matthew.  Even thought they weren’t looking to make any changes to their relationship but they are both unable to help how they feel for him.

Matthew.  Oh man – this character stole my heart.  He was such a hopeful and light character that it made heart ache to read about what life threw his way.  He carries this level of innocence and sweetness, you want him to find solace. I understood why and how Andrew and Victor’s feelings developed – he’s completely loveable.

This trio or throuple’s (what is the correct term?!) relationship just works.  There isn’t any jealously and they all contribute something special to the group.  Their sexual chemistry jumps of the page and make you want to be a voyager in their bedroom (Holy freaking hotness!!)  Every moment with this group is enticing and completely entertaining.  I really enjoyed this book.

Overall, I though their romance was an incredible read and I would definitely recommend Fame and Fortune.
