Présentation de l'éditeur

The most dangerous refuge could be his lover’s arms.

Everyone has at least one deep-seated fear. For Tyler, it’s being in debt. He’s so desperate to get out and stay out of it, he’ll do almost anything—including selling his body at Saturday night sex parties.

But he refuses to open his mind to anyone, especially the men paying to use him however they want. The only time he’s truly happy is during the week at college, when he can escape into his music.

The moment Haris sees Tyler playing piano at a concert, he falls hard, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make the guy his. Even if it means—for the first time in his life—opening his wallet as wide and desperate as his heart.

£20,000 to live with a good-looking guy for four months? How can Tyler resist the chance to ditch the sex party scene for good? But neither man realizes how much they’re risking. And when outside forces close in, ready to destroy them, the trickiest part about the next four months could be just surviving.

Warning: Contains a “for hire” bad boy with a filthy mouth, an awkward guy with a penchant for BDSM, a hypochondriac butler who won’t shut up, a dog called Alcide, and a lot of hot and dirty M/M sex.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story - rare 5 star rating 25 novembre 2013
Par Kevin Matthews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I rarely give M/M books a 5 star rating, because they rarely deserve it. Just to be clear, this a love story with a mystery twist. The main characters are not involved in BDSM; BDSM is a minor subtext in minor sections of the book.

The characters are well developed and despite their strengths and weaknesses we come to care for them. There is a lot of humor in the story, a little sadness and quite a bit of tenderness. There are also a number of hot sex scenes, but so well written that they add to the story rather than just the book's word count.

The book has about 5360 locations, so the Amazon page count seems accurate. The writing is very strong, as is the editing. This is the first book I've read from Ms. Elsborg; I'll definitely investigate her other works.

Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 B.E. Does it again....... 20 novembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Well, I have read most of B.E.'s novels and enjoyed them immensely ... I have to admit that the "rent-boy" theme does nothing for me and I really hesitated to purchase just because of that ...but... I thought, give her the benefit of the doubt, give it a try.. And I am glad I did. B.E. Does not disappoint. She made Tyler a sympathetic character for me. Not an easy task given the guys choices and history...but she did it. I loved Tyler, I felt for him and somehow I could even believe that a young man with his history may make the choices he did, believing as we all do when young, that we can do anything - though he comes to understand later that choices have consequences.. I also really enjoyed Haris, but at the end I have to admit his style of "jumping without looking," so to speak, irritated me slightly. But not enough to negate the enjoyment of the story. Give this book a try.. I am certain that you will find it an enjoyable and a worthwhile read. B.E. Has a wonderful way of crafting imperfect but believable and loveable heroes. Great job! Can't wait for your next book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 4  stars! With Or Without Him (stand-alone). Music student Tyler accepts a 4 month sexual contract with businessman! 21 février 2014
Par Avid Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"Tyler's lips curved in a smile and Haris understood he couldn't keep a guy like him. Tyler was wild and beautiful, and he'd get bored and want to leave, unless Haris made him an offer he couldn't refuse."

With Or Without Him (stand-alone) opens up to a sex party where music student Tyler Bellamy has been hired to serve and fulfill the sexual desires and fantasies of the (mostly) men crowd attending. We learn that he is weighed down by student loans. Though he is highly sexual and enjoying some of it, he feels guilt and shame to have resorted to this to pay down his debt. Tyler's reasons along with his traumatic and horrific past will unfold with story.
"When no one was watching, he allowed himself a moment of self-pity. Maybe this was all he deserved, to be used and discarded like the piece of trash he was. He'd never be loved. He didn't deserve that either."

Haris Evans is also a man with many secrets and a painful past. As a Venture Capitalist has amassed a fortune, but he lives a life of solitude. One night when attending a charity music concert and the local University he encounters Tyler and is mesmerized. When he sees and hears Tyler perform he is blown away and decides he has to have him.

Haris follows Tyler as he hurriedly departs the concert and they end up another sex party. But this one goes horribly wrong and Haris ends up rescuing Tyler. Haris pursues Tyler and offers him a four month exclusivity contract; live with him, have sex and go their separate ways.

Needless to say their sex is off-the-charts and both quickly feel a stronger connection. However their pasts, insecurities and circumstances makes them both hesitant of confide in each other. Add to that jealous and possessive ex-lovers who stir up.

Soon they have an even bigger problem on their hands when it becomes clear that someone or something wants them hurt, maybe dead. But who and why? A suspenseful and very dangerous time ensues as Haris and Tyler try tackle and decipher the threats while getting to know each other in and out of the bedroom.

Ultimately this is Tyler and Haris' journey of dealing and coming to terms with one's past, face fears and leaning to open one's heart. It's not an easy road and story kept me at the edge of my seat all the way to the end...

TYLER BELLAMY: 21 years/British/University music student/sex performer/black hayr/black eyes/orphan/tattoo.
Tyler Bellamy is an unforgettable hero. He weaved his way into my heart from page one. Despite everything that has happened to him he finds the good in people and has an amazing sense of humor. With his charisma and uncanny beauty people are drawn to him like moths to a flame, myself included.

Eight words to describe Tyler: Captivating, resilient, smart, charismatic, sarcastic, noble, sweet, funny and vulnerable.
"But no one gets access to the parts of me I keep private. So don't think you're going to know me, to understand me. It won't happen. You're buying my body not my life."

HARIS EVANS: 30 years/Saudi-British/venture capitalist/$$$$/black hair/green eyes/scars.
Haris Evans was also a handsome man, very exotic. He is perfect for Tyler, but I feel he was making mistakes a little too long into story....
Seven words to describe Haris: Intelligent, successful, caring, oblivious, thoughtless, impulsive and commanding.
"He knew what he wanted and he usually took it. He was as alpha male as they come. He worked in a profession that required him to be quick thinking and authoritative."

With Or Without Him is truly a roller-coaster ride all the way to the perfect end. Though most of story transpired over the period of a few weeks, towards end I would have liked for the lines communication to have opened up more. I felt there was no need for as many misunderstandings.

Captivating, fast paced plot! Excellent story-telling! Mind-blowing sex scenes! Nail-biting suspense! Delightful side character, Wilson! Unforgettable Tyler Bellamy!
"While you let those scars affect what you do, you're allowing your punishment to continue. It's done. You need to move on. Sh~ t, that was brilliant advice. I just wish I could follow it myself."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Incredible story 20 novembre 2013
Par Christy Loves 2 Read - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Strong 4.5 ~
This story evoked a strong emotional response from me, which to be honest, surprised me. The plot wasn't an unfamiliar one, but, perhaps the fact that it took place in England instead of the US is what affected me? I'm not sure, other than Tyler resonated within me and I couldn't let him go for quite a while. 'With or Without Him' is about so much more than a college guy selling himself to pay off his student loans and the wealthy man who rescues him. Mainly because both Tyler and Haris need to be rescued from the things in their past that continue to drag them down and meeting each other turns into the miracle they both needed it to be.

Tyler does once a week sex parties for Prescott for five hundred pounds each week, cash. Considering his student loan debt will run into the mid-thirty thousand pound mark per year, Tyler needs the money. Granted, he could wait to pay off his loans until he's graduated and has a job, but Tyler hates being indebted, in any way, so when Prescott lured him in, he couldn't say no. It's been a long time now and the only way he can survive is by shutting all his feelings away and simply getting through it. Not to mention that once Prescott has you, getting away from him is almost impossible. When Prescott "asks" Tyler to appear at a mid-week engagement for double the money, Tyler has no idea that he's going to be forcibly restrained in BDSM with no way of safewording and no one listening. Except for Haris.

Haris is a wealthy, hardworking stockbroker who accepted an invite to the music college for a benefit concert for donations. One look at Tyler playing the piano and Haris wants him more than he's ever wanted anyone else. He follows Tyler when he leaves, ends up at the warehouse to find Tyler hanging from a St. Andrews's cross with multiple clamps attached to his body. Thinking this is what Tyler is into, Haris initially is going to leave, until he gets a good look at the young man's face and realizes he's terrified. Tyler is tied at wrists and ankles with a ball gag in. No possible way to safeword and be let down, not that Prescott or his flunkies listened to Tyler before the ball gag was in place. Haris makes some initial protests but backs off before he can be thrown out. Instead, Haris calls his butler, Wilson (who is hysterical, by the way), and once he arrives and is waiting out front with the car running, Haris is able to whisk Tyler away by turning off all the lights and flipping the fire alarm. Haris is furious when he discovers everyone exited the building but left Tyler hanging.

The next thing Tyler knows, Haris has found him at the college, taken him for coffee, and proposed a business arrangement. If Tyler lives with him for four months Haris will pay him twenty thousand pounds and an additional ten thousand for clothes. Except for his school obligations, Tyler's time will be spent with Haris. Haris has his own motivations here. He wants Tyler desperately and figures four months will prove that Haris is incapable of a relationship, he can get Tyler out of his system, they both get what they want and walk away. No harm, no foul. Watching Tyler and Haris meet for dinner the following night is almost magical. Inside Tyler's sarcastic and mouthy self is a very witty young man who can banter back and forth easily. Haris is more than charmed and Tyler is equally impressed, although feeling very inadequate next to Haris's social skills and knowledge.

This story could proceed along fairly predictably, but instead, the author intensified the drama and the mystery. Someone is stalking them and trying to kill them. But, are they after Haris or Tyler? Or both? Whose past is coming back to haunt them? Haris is thinking he might need to hire a private detective to get to the bottom of the mess. All of this intrigue is going on while Tyler and Haris are trying to figure out what they are doing and they're slowly moving from a business arrangement to something more, Prescott is threatening Tyler constantly, and Wilson is positive they're being tailed when they are out in the car.

I fell completely for Tyler. Something about him just broke my heart. To have lived through what he did at such a young age and still retain some semblance of sanity is remarkable. Tyler tries so hard to not feel anything, to never, ever be vulnerable again, to never love again. When, in truth, Tyler has a giant heart and so much love to give. It's the trusting he has a tough time with. Amazingly, I fell just as hard for Haris and for many of the same reasons. Haris was a little older when his childhood imploded, but it surely happened in a most brutal fashion and I wasn't surprised that Haris had become a control freak and never wanted to let anyone in. The two men shared some definite characteristics in that they were both sullen and moody, but also scared, vulnerable, terrified of trusting, and oh so lonely.

This was a wonderful story and my first experience with the author but guaranteed to not be my last. I adored the main characters and the secondaries were just as good. The entire plot and the resulting whodunit came as a big surprise, which I greatly enjoyed. All in all this was a fabulous story and I'm adding Tyler and Haris to my list of favorite characters. Thank you, Barbara Ellsborg, for an amazing story.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It was a good read but.... 21 décembre 2013
Par Paige Turner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I liked the book for the most part. Tyler was a sweet and broken man who was looking for a way out and was hoping to find this in Harris. While Harris tried, he was always falling short, causing more pain to Tyler.

I felt the book was getting a little long winded. When I was just over half way done with the book I thought "oh no, how much more can Tyler endure". Then the book just ended. After everything the two went through I would have hoped there would be an epilogue. This was my first read by this author and will look for more.
