Story Overview:
"When love's for sale, who really pays?"

Connor Morrison is a 3-D optics pioneer, the star of the UC Berkeley physics department, and a socially inept workaholic. And with his dear friend and business partner, Steve Campbell, handling their investors, he's content to remain in the shadows. That is, until he meets the gorgeous and starry-eyed physics student Wes Martin.

Wes is brilliant but broke. Ever since his scholarship fell victim to the financial crisis, he's had no choice but to sell his body to stay in school. Already half in love with Connor, Wes initially resists Steve's offer to be Connor's thirty-fifth birthday present. But in the end, Wes is too broke--and too smitten--to say no.

Connor has no idea Steve bought Wes's attentions, and he quickly falls under the young man's spell. Yet after one night together, Wes disappears. He can't bear to hook with a man he could so easily grow to love, but he also can't bear to tell him the truth. Besides, if he sleeps with Connor again, there'd be no way to hide the bruises one of his regular johns loves to inflict. Only one thing to do: let Connor go. Walking away is painful, but not nearly as much as building a relationship on lies.

"Reader discretion advised. This title contains the following sensitive themes: non-consent."

My Review:
B+ hot
This was a quick read so I am going to do a quick review of it. I liked this book. Wes is in a situation and is pretty much trapped. He isn't willing to let go of his dreams and is willing to make some sacrifices to get them. Unfortunately, that plan goes awry and he ends up in a bad place.

Enter Connor, the professor that Wes could have loved...if he hadn't been secretly hired and paid to seduce him. They have so much in common and are so good together. When Connor realizes what is happening to Wes, he can't stand by and just let it happen, no matter how much it hurts to get involved with the situation.

There's a lot of emotion to this book and Cat Grant wrote it superbly well. Like I said, it's a quick read, but it had just the perfect depth of story to make it completely enjoyable. I liked getting to know these two characters.
