Gay for Pay: An All Cocks story

Christopher Allan Roberts thought he had a promising future; Captain of the football team with the promise of a scholarship to play for Alabama. His high school sweetheart and best friend for as long as he could remember, Amanda, by his side, and the love and support of his family. One night, one mistake changed everything. Chris moves to New York, adrift and alone. A walk one night brings him to the flashing lights, loud music and thrumming bodies at club Berlin. A flyer in the men’s room promises fame and fortune for anyone willing to go on camera and have sex, with another man. Money is money, and how hard could it be, right?
Christopher Allan Roberts becomes Kris Alen, All Cocks newest addition, a gay for pay porn star. 
Lincoln Carter is honest with everyone in his life, including his family, about who he is and about his sexual preferences. Linc Larson, the openly bi-sexual gay porn star will do anything with anyone, which pretty much writes his ticket in a versatility charged industry. It’s not his sexuality that interferes with his personal life; it’s his inability to trust. 
What Linc wants right now, more than anything, is the chance to do a scene with All Cocks newest acquisition, Kris Alen. Six foot two with Auburn hair, an exquisitely toned and inked up body, Kris Alen is sex personified. Linc doesn’t know if it’s the “I want the shiny new toy” aspect that calls to him, or the distant and wounded expression that haunts Kris’s eyes. 
Linc figures out early on that Kris is only working the gay for pay angle that All Cocks brings to his bank account. Can a bi-sexual man with trust issues break down the barriers that Kris has built around himself and help Christopher overcome the painful past he is running from. 
Gay for Pay is a gay for you story about two men that will have to come to terms with the mistakes they made in their past, if they want to stick around and have a chance at a future.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Chris did something wrong. Stupid. Fatal. Although he never went to prison for it, the shunning of family and friends, the loss of a beloved, it was enough of a punishment that would have sent a weaker man to his knees and end it all. Chris did wallow in the misery but his staunch friend and supporter never allowed him to sink deeper. One day he sees a flyer that promoted a porn site called All Cocks and made a decision that changed his life even more.

Linc is a porn star for All Cocks and the first time he sees straight newbie, Chris, he knew he wanted him. Who wouldn't, with his height, build and ink? Upon closer look, Linc saw beyond the physical and saw the insecurity and misery. He reaches out and finds a true partner in an otherwise sexual world.

Just by the title alone, one could immediately surmise that Chris is a straight man who becomes a porn star to make ends meet. The blurb tells us that one stupid mistake made Chris decide to do something or just off it. Fortunately, Chris is not the type to give up, no matter what left hook comes his way. 

For those who first read the blurb, there is an immediate response of "Hell, no freaking way!" Then again, another would ask what made Chris and others like him go the porn way? Best question of all, how do they remain human in such a world? Well, TM Smith gives us a glimpse of what that real world is like from within the porn industry. She gives us a peek of how two men in said industry become loyal lovers and partners. 

Yes, it is possible to remain human in such an industry and yes, again, there are real life couples who have remained true to each other for years and years despite their professions. Others may scoff it off, others may condemn it, but reading Chris and Linc opens the eyes of what that world is actually all about. 

These porn sites are viewed by the billions and drooled over, no matter what is presented. Have you stopped to think the people performing there live normal, everyday lives as well? Chris and Linc are an incredibly real couple in this particular fictional world. They remind me of one or two I am more familiar with because of their very public profiles. As for the side characters, the men within and without All Cocks, these are men I want to read more about. The way Smith wrote them, they are real people who have finally found a voice thru an ebook. 

Never expected to love this, but I did. And I do. Recommend you read this.

A military brat born and raised at Ft. Benning Georgia; Smith is an avid reader, reviewer and writer. She now calls Texas home from her small town on the outskirts of the DFW Metroplex. Most days you can find her curled up with her kindle and a good book alongside a glass of something aged and red or a steaming cup of coffee!
At 42 years young, she's decided to enter the next phase of her life by adding the title of "author" to her list of accomplishments that includes single mom of three disturbingly outspoken and decidedly different kids, one of which is Autistic. Smith is and outspoken advocate for Autism and equal rights for the LGBTQ community.
Her Opposites series is based outside the normal parameters of social acceptability, examining a 'what if'... What If to be gay or lesbian were the norm? What if to be straight labeled you as an Opposite and made YOU the Outkast? Currently, Smith is working on a new series that is set within the world of online gay porn.
