Kurzbeschreibung

If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it's cheaper to rent it.

After driving James Harcourt, his wealthy banker boss, around for a year and a half, Cal isn’t surprised by much anymore. Not even James’s regular trips to Market Garden, London’s most elite gay brothel.

But when James leaves the Garden alone one night and turns to Cal instead, Cal’s floored. After crushing on his boss for ages, it’s his wet dream come true . . . until the awkward morning after. Cal still has a job to do, but he wants to offer more. Yet James doesn’t take him up on it; he keeps Cal at arm’s length and continues his chauffeured jaunts to Market Garden.

As Cal learns what James needs from the rentboys, he tries to fill that need himself. But there’s more to James’s penchant for rentboys than Cal realises, and it may be one role that Cal can’t fill without overstepping his duty.

HASH(0x96f6a600) von 5 Sternen Callum and James get their due and so much more... 31. März 2014
Von Spifette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As usual, when these two writers team up, they show how well they know human behavior, motivation and emotion, and how to get that onto the written page. Uncertainty, need, confidence, anger, understanding and much, much more. Can we say fun?? I think sooooooo!

It’s a strange place, that partially performed transition from old to new. Cal and James find themselves straddling the squirrely line between what was and what may be, with “what the heck just happened?!” is trying to gum up the works.

Transitions are smooth, dialogue flows and despite this mostly coming from Cal’s point of view, we still get some insight into James.

The tone of this one is a bit different than all of the others. I think this mostly comes from the amount of time and space this story had in order to unfold itself. We still get the geyser-worthy heat, but each encounter is surrounded by Cal and James’ attempts to figure out just what the hell is going on between them.

I so enjoyed getting to see Market Garden through a new set of eyes by way of Callum. And, most importantly, this leads to the crux of the story. It’s quite delish.

The pace fits the length of this entrant of the MG series. Believe me the length is grand. There was time for exploration, time for mistakes between Cal and James, time for hotness and sharing secrets.

There are so many things I want to tell you about this story! However, I will tell you none. Yes, I will be purposely vague. But I will say things like: this is what happens when Voinov and Witt get in a room together, real or virtual. This is what happens when a fully fleshed out (no pun intended! can ya believe it?) story and characters get expertly plastered all over the page. Fun. Hot. Exploration. Shiver-worthy. Hesitant. Human.

Lest anyone think this is merely sex on the proverbial stick, let me separate you from that notion. Character dissection is the name of the game. The results? This. Cal. James. Cal & James. Struggling to navigate the inevitable landmines when you’re in uncharted territory. It breeds difficulty, roadblocks, conflict. And then what do you get? Well, if you read, you’ll see. ;)

The ending is fulfilling on the surface but does feel rushed. Reasons for the obstacles these two faced, and may yet still, are smudged out singularly. In the scheme of things, though, this is a minor issue. The journey on which these two find themselves for 95% of the book completely worked for me. This book is in a battle royale with Capture and Surrender for the most complete meal in the Market Garden series.
I, for one, am completely sated having taken every word of this journey.

This review is for the eBook version.

HASH(0x96f66bb8) von 5 Sternen Wonderful 28. März 2014
Von Marleen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I received my copy from the publisher through Love Romances and More.

“Very much a Been There, Done it and Got the Whip Coordination to Prove it kind of vibe.”

Cal has been working as James Harcourt’s private driver for 18 months and in most ways it is a job that suits him perfectly. It pays well, comes with housing and leaves him plenty of time for his writing. The only problem Cal faces is that he’s developed feelings for his employer, feelings he could never admit to or act upon. Instead he has to deal with James’ regular visits to the ‘Market Garden’ where the man picks up rentboys to fulfil whatever his needs may be at home.

When a visit to the ‘Market Garden’ ends with James leaving alone, Cal is surprised. When James subsequently invites him into his house and his bed Cal is delighted and worried in same measure. Spending the night with the man who has the centre of all his fantasies is a dream come true. But the morning after is a nightmare. And although Cal would happily build on his one night with James it isn’t long before the visits to the ‘Market Garden’ resume, leaving Cal hurt and confused.

Convinced that James needs something more than he is able to provide, Cal is determined to find out what that something is and learn whatever it takes in order to provide it.

And while James seems to relish the new and improved Cal, something still isn’t right. James keeps his distance and Cal doesn’t know what else to and has to consider that maybe what James needs is more than Cal could ever be.

To say I enjoyed this book would be a gross understatement. Cal and James captured my attention on the first page and refused to let me go until I had read the subsequent 220 pages. I laughed, smiled, frowned and felt my eyes tear up once or twice and enjoyed every single minute of it.

It was impossible to not fall in love with Cal while reading this book. The lengths he’s prepared to go to in order to find out whether or not he can ever be what James needs are breathtaking. Through it all, no matter how heartbroken he is Cam, can’t stop caring for James, wanting to make sure the man is alright even though he knows he should probably forget about him for his own sanity.

L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov make it look deceptively easy. Their words flow smoothly, their characters sparkle, the dialogue sounds just right and story seems to tell itself. This book is such a compulsive read that it is tempting to call it an easy story. It was only after I finished the book and reflected on what I had read that it struck me how talented a writer(s) it would take to create a work this compelling. I dare anyone to start this book and not get so engrossed that it is all but impossible to put it down before you’ve reached the end and have found out exactly what happens.

Since I was late to the party as far as ‘The Market Garden’ series is concerned and have been reading titles as they were released I’m left stuck with a wonderful prospect; I may be up to date as far as new releases are concerned, there still are four titles I haven’t read yet. After reading ‘If it Drives’ and getting a glimpse of Nick, I think I’ll have to go back and read his story next. ‘If it Flies’ and ‘If it Fornicates’ here I come.

HASH(0x96f66180) von 5 Sternen I feel as though this one was a bit different. It was more angsty and I didn't like (or believe) the relationship buildup 30. April 2015
Von UltraMeital - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
While I really enjoyed the previous installments in the series, this one wasn't a favorite. I'm not even sure I would have finished it if it wasn't that short. I feel as though this one was a bit different. It was more angsty and I didn't like (or believe) the relationship buildup between Cal and James.

Before I begin my review I should say that also unlike the previous installments I do believe it will be best to read as the last installment or all least after the 5th installment ("Capture & Surrender") since there is a specific mention of both Nick & Spencer (Market Garden #3-#4) and Frank & Brandon (Market Garden #5) and the place they are in as a formed couple.

We've met both Cal and James briefly in Nick & Spencer's story. James was the last person Nick went with before realizing it's just wrong for him to be with anyone but Spencer. It was partly because of the way their relationship was building and also because James was difficult (and so damn different from Spencer), he struggled with every order and Nick felt as though he can't be focused as he should with him (or any other client for that matter..). When Nick is ready to leave in the morning, a resentful Cal does more than his job requirement as James's driver and drops him home.

It was obvious there that Cal has feelings for James, some attraction at least, and he doesn't know how or if to act on them. This installment starts with James doing the first step and after a night together they are both quite confused. Since the whole novel is told from Cal's POV it's hard at times to get James's wants and needs though at a certain point they become quite clear. Cal is willing to do whatever it takes to learn how to be there for James so he won't go "destructing" over the rentboys at "Market Garden". But the question is, does he actually have it in him to give James what he needs? Apparently he does but he still needs help figuring both himself and James which is why he hires the best man for the job...

Yet there is more to life than good or even great sex. While Cal is everything sexually that James needs there is still a huge distance between them emotionally though they have a great connection when they actually talk. I didn't like their sexual interactions. I'm not even sure why but it just didn't "work" for me. I was annoyed at most of them if not all of them. So I kept waiting for the actual connection part and was disappointed to get a highly emotional Cal who isn't even in tune with himself to realize how much he loves and needs James. He was just so damn angsty and emotional - can't read, can't write, can't sleep (surprised he didn't burst into tears into his pillow at night). It wasn't sexy to say the least and it also didn't work with the "Dom persona" he was with James. While I could get James being a certain person at work and needing something totally different in bed (or around the bed.. in the billiard room.. whatever..), I just didn't "believe" Cal's character. He was too insecure and emotional for me to accept as a person who can be in total control without it being a TOTAL act.

So sadly I'm finishing this series at the moment with a bit of a soar taste, though I won't forget how much I LOVED (and ached) through "Capture & Surrender" just two days ago. I really hope Voinov and Witt find the time to write more in the series and I truly hope that it would be more in the lines of Frank & Brandon's story or along the lines of Tristan & Jared (yeah, it probably just means a little less BDSM.. I feel a bit tired of it at the moment..).

HASH(0x96f6cd8c) von 5 Sternen Another solid performance! 28. März 2014
Von JustJen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
4.5 star review by The Blogger Girls.

In this segment, we find James (aka Red Tie) coming up empty handed at the Garden one night after not finding exactly what he was looking for. He ends up turning to his driver, Cal, as the two have kind of silently danced around attraction. Up to this point, the employer/employee relationship has kept them from taking action. Even after they take thing further one night, this issue remains strong. They continue walking a tightrope between what they allowed to happen and how to go about their daily lives working together.

Besides the employment issue is the fact that James was apparently getting something particular from the rentboys, and Cal aims to find out what it is. When he does, he then takes it upon himself to learn more in order to find out if he is capable of providing the same for James. He starts off with some research and major recon which leads him to the Market Garden.

Queue my favorite part of this book – Cal is put into contact with Market Garden ex-dom rentboy, Nick, to help. I absolutely loved seeing Nick and Spencer again. Apparently, James was lucky enough to have experienced Nick in the past before he gave up the business, and Nick is more than happy to help with the chance at another go at James. So, with Nick’s tutoring, Cal learns more about being the dominant partner to James who was a difficult sub even for Nick. What ensues are some majorly hot and steamy scenes as Cal slowly learns what it takes to keep James under control and meeting his needs.

I had some trouble feeling or believing in Cal and James’ relationship. This was better by the end, but I didn’t quite feel as though we got to know their characters very deeply. I enjoyed their interactions, and the sex was fabulous, especially when they really got into the d/s scenes.

There is no question that this is a well-written, extremely enjoyable ride. As with all of these stories, no sooner am I finished with one that I am ready and excited for the next. They each have a slightly different flavor, but all are solid and smooth, sexy and entertaining. This series does not disappoint.

HASH(0x96f6cf3c) von 5 Sternen Perfect Addition to a Great Series 6. Juli 2014
Von Tina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If It Drives is the seventh in the Market Garden series co-authored by L.A. Witt and Aleksansr Voinov. They have all been wildly popular for good reason. These are a series of stories, some barely fifty pages long, some over two-hundred about rent boys and their johns set in the Market Garden section of London. This one was particularly good. It wasn’t one I had been looking forward to. I believe the authors and all the fans reading this know exactly which one I AM looking forward to! This one had a sweetness and a vulnerability that I liked.

Callum has been chauffeuring James for about 18 months now. He got the job through his uncle’s limo company and he is glad to have it with the economy the way it is. He has secretly been crushing on his sexy, rich and very gay boss for most of his employment.

Cal has driven James to meetings with high powered bankers and foreign dignitaries. He has driven him to parties for the rich and famous. The only place he has driven James which has bothered him is on James’s approximately monthly trips to the Market Garden to pick out his companionship for the night. Cal waits for James to make his selection, drives them back to James’s house and then makes them coffee and sees the rent boy home in the morning. James has no idea that this drives Cal insane.

After one trip to the Market Garden, James comes out alone. The tension in him has been building and he seems extremely disappointed to have not found what he was looking for. It seems none of the boys that meet his requirements were available that night. He invites Cal in for a drink which turns in to an overnight stay and an awkward morning after.

Cal wants to figure out how to continue being James’s driver but also pursue a sexual and romantic relationship with him. As he so clearly found out, James seems to be as attracted to Cal as Cal is to him. When Cal tries to put together the clues to figure out what it is that James needs from a lover, he turns to the one place he knows will be able to help him. The Market Garden.

The owner of the Market Garden knows who James is right away and suggests that Cal meet with Nick, one of the former rent boys that James spent time with frequently. Nick has left the business for true love and a committed relationship and is surprised by Cal’s call, but agrees to meet with him.

The difficulty of the situation is to determine where the line must be drawn to separate Cal’s job from his role as James’s lover. Nick is able to help Cal to learn what he needs to do to meet James’s sexual needs, but James and Cal must navigate the separation of the two roles. Watching them dance back and forth over that line is cruel pleasure for the reader,

The vulnerability James shows in opening up to Cal about his needs and letting Cal in is really touching. Cal’s determination to be all that his lover needs no matter how hard it is to learn what he must know is so sweet. He really wants their relationship to work, and so does James. Watching the drama play out is entertaining and romantic. Witt & Voinov have written another winner in If It Drives. I hope there are more in the series, one in particular…
