Bay Whitman, scrittore di gialli di successo, vive una vita da celebrità, perlomeno in apparenza. In pubblico è sempre spigliato e sicuro di sé. Le donne pendono dalle sue labbra e gli uomini invidiano i suoi modi spavaldi. In realtà, però, Bay è un tipo solitario. È timido e introverso e la sua vita consiste nello stare seduto in una stanza semibuia a scrivere i suoi famosi romanzi con protagonista Jack Robbins. Il suo unico vizio è il gioco d’azzardo. Vincere un escort durante una partita a poker cambierà la sua vita in modi che non avrebbe mai immaginato.

Matthew “King” Slater è uno dei più celebri attori di film porno gay. Trascorre le giornate davanti alla telecamera e le notti come escort d’alto bordo, pagato profumatamente. Ciò che desidera realmente è il romanticismo di una vera relazione, ma il suo passato gli rende difficile separare i desideri del corpo da quelli del cuore. Per il momento, per lui è più facile pensare al sesso come a un lavoro e basta. Un giorno, però, mentre si trova a Las Vegas per delle riprese, viene assunto per una serata in un hotel famoso, e il suo bel cliente potrebbe sfumare i confini tra il dovere e il piacere.

New York Times best-selling mystery writer Bay Whitman leads the life of a celebrity—at least on the surface. In public he’s self-assured and in control. Women hang on his every word, while men envy his confidence and swagger. But in reality, Bay is a loner.

Winning an escort in a poker game will change Bay’s life in ways he never imagined.

Matthew “King” Slater is one of the hottest tickets in gay porn. He spends his days in front of the camera and his nights as a highly paid escort to the rich and famous. Deep down, he craves romance and a real connection, but his past makes it hard to separate the needs of his body from those of his heart. For now, it’s easier to think of sex as just a job. But while doing a shoot in Vegas, King is hired for a tryst at a famous hotel and casino, and his handsome client might blur the line between work and play.
