Jeremy Linden’s a PhD student researching an HIV vaccine. He’s always short of money, and when biotech startup PharmaTek reduces funding for his fellowship, he’s tempted to take a job at a men’s dining club as a serving boy. The uniforms are skimpy, and he’s expected to remove an item of clothing after each course. He can handle that, but he soon discovers there’s more on the menu here than fine cuisine. How far will he go to pay his tuition, and will money get in the way when he realizes he’s interested in more from one of his gentlemen?
Brice Martin is an attorney for a Silicon Valley venture capital firm. When he’s asked to take a client to the infamous Dinner Club, he finds himself unexpectedly turned on by the atmosphere and especially by his server, Remy. He senses there’s more to the sexy young man than meets the eye. The paradox fascinates him, and he can’t get enough of Remy.
Their relationship quickly extends beyond the club and sex. But the trust and affection they’ve worked to achieve may crumble when Jeremy discovers Brice’s VC firm is the one that pulled the plug on PharmaTek—and Jeremy’s research grant.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
E.M. Lynley continues to impress me with her versatility as an author and DIRTY DINING is a sensual extravaganza. Gifting readers with an intricately developed romance, tantalizing story line, engaging characters, and sizzling sexuality, Lynley delivers one of her best stories to date.
I instantly fell in love with Jeremy. He's smart, funny, sexy, adventurous, and at the same time endearingly sweet. It took me a bit longer to warm up to his love interest, Brice, but he won me over in the end with his love and determination.
The entire cast of characters just clicked for me. Everything felt right, even when parts of the plot were going oh-so-wrong, and my anticipation kept the pages turning. Since you can't get a reservation at the Dinner Club I recommend the next best thing, picking up a copy of DIRTY DINING as a sexy treat to yourself!View all my reviews
EM Lynley writes gay erotic romance. She loves books where the hero gets the guy and the loving is 11 on a scale of 10. A Rainbow Award winner and EPIC finalist, EM has worked in high finance, high tech, and in the wine industry, though she'd rather be writing hot, romantic man-on-man action. She spent 10 years as an economist and financial analyst, including a year as a White House Staff Economist, but only because all the intern positions were filled. Tired of boring herself and others with dry business reports and articles, her creative muse is back and naughtier than ever. She has lived and worked in London, Tokyo and Washington, D.C., but the San Francisco Bay Area is home for now.
She is the author of Sex, Lies & Wedding Bells, the Precious Gems series from Dreamspinner Press, and the Rewriting History series starring a sexy jewel thief, among others.
