Cooper McKenzie 1800SexGods Toby


Homeless and living in his car, all Toby Smith wanted was a job dancing at the gay club, Sex Gods. When he arrives late for the audition, the jobs have all been filled. Swallowing his pride, he begs for a job, any job. Though he would prefer to be onstage, he agrees to be a combination server, dishwasher, and bar back.
Riley Muldoon takes one look at the sexy little man and falls instantly in lust. But Toby has secrets he is not willing to share. What Riley does learn has him making an offer he has made no other man, to let Toby dictate the pace and direction of their relationship.
Can Toby keep Riley from discovering his secrets until he can fix his pathetic life? Will Riley care one way or another? Will Riley really be able to let another man dictate the terms of their relationship?


Not suitable for those under 18; contains explicit sex scenes.

I really enjoyed reading this short, sweet, and refreshingly different HEA erotic romance. One of the things I really liked about Toby is one of the characters happens to be a homeless person who is trying to find a secure job to re-establish himself.

I love how the writer portrayed Toby, who is sweet, sexy, emotionally innocent, and very honest. His earnestness is so appealing. As a result, Toby is one of the sweetest twinks I ever read in a story.

Riley also is very lovable. He is one of the rare alpha males written who is confident enough in himself to let Toby set the pace of their relationship.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Toby is a recommended read for anybody who wants a short and sweet introduction to a new series that will revolve around those affiliated with the Sex Gods club.
