Book 1 of Thorne and Dash
Next Book: Personal Entanglement

Thornwell Shipton is wealthy, uptight, closeted, and an incurable workaholic. A tragic love affair left him terrified of relationships, so he tells himself sex is better scheduled and paid for.

Riley Dashwood is young, easy-going, and comfortable in his own skin. He’s a passionate baker and an aspiring chef, working as an escort to save up for culinary school.

They’re clearly made for each other.

When Thorne hires Dash, it’s lust at first sight. After a few scorching nights together, both men start to wonder if what’s between them is more than physical, but their age gap and resistance to romance make them afraid to change their professional relationship to a personal one. Dash pushes Thorne to admit he wants things he’s denied himself for years. Kinky things. Soft, caring things. Things that force him to open his heart, not just his body. To move forward, one or the other must take a risk and ask for what he really wants.

Where do I start...... Silvia Violet has absolutely excelled herself with this one I've read her" Unexpected" series which was very good but this omg!!!!

Thorne is an uptight ass and liked things his own way he tried a relationship once but when it ended in heartache he found it easier to pay for sex and not get involved that is until he meets Dash a hot blooded cheeky escort half his age. Their attraction to each other is fireworks from the beginning, with neither of them letting onto the other how hot their feelings go; and the sex, OMG, is hot or what and the love story between them continues to grow throughout.

This is definitely my kind of M/M story!
1....A story ( not just sex)
2....Well written
3......Hot steamy sex
4.....An ending that is happyish that wants you needing more!!! And guess what, there is a book 2&3 yayyyyyy roll on 2016!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Waiting For The Sequels 11 December 2015
By Bo - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After the ending of this book I scratched my head because there are to be two sequels in 2016. I cannot imagine what they will deal with because this one is so detailed and so fulfilling in bringing two complete opposites together.

Thorne is a hard-driving, gorgeous (see the cover) 42-year-old closeted Atlanta workaholic and Dash (aka Riley) is a 22-year-old high-end rent boy and aspiring baker whose lifestyles and life goals could not be further apart. That is, of course, until Thorne hires Dash one Friday night. We are quick to discover that they do have something in common--terrific, sometimes kinky, and always very detailed sex.

This book is filled to overflowing with as much sex as one might be able to compare to stuffing a cupcake with too much cream (oops!). But it works, because it forces Thorne and Dash to wonder what life might be for them beyond the bedroom or various positions in other rooms and over other pieces of furniture in Thorne's magnificent apartment.

Their journey to love-me-love-me-not is almost tortuous, but in the end it works, or at least is starting to work. Maybe that's where the sequels are heading. I will be waiting.
4.0 out of 5 stars Well written story 31 May 2016
By E L-G - Published on

This was a well-plotted & developed story of "I only wanted a professional arrangement until I met him". The story flips between Dash & Thorne's perspectives, but it's more about Thorne getting over his past & accepting himself, so that he can create room in his life for a real relationship. We don't really get a specific sense of Dash's backstory, but who he is in the present is well-defined.

There is a lot of sex, but there is also a lot of time spent on developing Dash & Thorne as people, and building their chemistry together, so there are real stakes as their relationship evolves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good read 10 June 2016
By Greytday - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I honestly had no real expectations when I chose to download a sample of this book. However, it was good enough to buy the book and I am glad that I did. While the book has a lot of sex, it is a much bigger story than just the sex. I really appreciate when an author is able to achieve both a well written story and a very hot read. Kudos.
4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific! 10 February 2016
By Anita L McFarlane - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A very uncomplicated approach to the older arrogant workaholic falls in love with his much younger rentboy theme. Only difference here is that Thorne is closeted. Thorne and Dash are really quite engaging and relatable MCs. I liked that their relationship builds over time through different experiences. I did have one pet peeve and it's me, not you - lol. The many times one of them said "oh that's so hot" or "you're so hot." I just think that rings so false in the heat of the moment. Lots of steam and some very well done kink. These guys really get it on! Nice little HFN and liked how things didn't end in an all puppies and rainbows sort of HEA. Quite realistic. Interesting secondary characters as well. Wondering what Marc's story is. Wandered through the author's web site trying to determine if any of the Thorne and Dash books 2 and 3 will include Marc but couldn't find anything. Also liked Thorne's sister. Good writing - a trifle simplistic but that's fine. Lovely read and will definitely read the next books in the series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dominant or Submissive? 7 December 2015

This book makes you think if what you need is worth having at all cost. A businessman who looks forward to being with an escort on Friday's finds out the man that he haves sex with has quit and being replaced with a younger better equipped to handle all of his needs man. Problem they both crossed the line and stumbles on what to do next. A every nice romance even if their is a twenty year age difference and they like to switch roles. Great Job!
