Review of Quid Pro Quo by L.A. Witt & Aleksandr Voinov

Title: Quid Pro Quo
Series: Market Garden #1
Authors: L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov
Source: NetGalley
Review Genre: Erotica
Length: Novella, 37 pgs
Reviewed by: KindleRomance

For the past six months, Jared’s been selling sex at Market Garden, a London club that caters to the better-off. But business is slow in the run-up to Christmas, when businessmen and bankers are too busy bickering over bonuses to rent themselves a little high-class action.

Though Jared’s wallet finds the downtime unnerving, the rest of him rather enjoys the opportunity it gives him to admire Tristan, an old hand in the club whose reputation usually sees him well-booked. Jared has been crushing on Tristan for months—he’s no more immune to Tristan’s cockiness and confidence than the johns, and those are just Tristan’s inner qualities.
Just as Jared’s about to chat Tristan up, a businessman asks for something a little different: he wants to book them both. They agree—and Jared finds himself going from crush to mind-bending lust as he’s made the pawn in a sexual power game. Tristan shows him how a pro handles a john while delivering the top-shelf sex for which the Market Garden is so rightly renowned.

I really enjoyed the writing skills of these authors. I have no idea how they split up this story, but it was impossible to tell that two people wrote it. The writing is smooth, the characters engaging, and the sex scene is extremely well done. If you're looking for pure erotica, then this story should fit the bill. Just be warned that this is not a romance. There isn't any relationship building. There's no HEA or HFN, but there is a promise of a future hook-up which I assume might take place in a future book. You only get to know Jared because the story is told from his POV. Jared is adorable as he crushes on Tristan. Tristan seems like a very nice guy, as does the john that is a paying voyeur for their sexual activities.
