Jeremy Linden’s a PhD student researching an HIV vaccine. He’s always short of money, and when biotech startup PharmaTek reduces funding for his fellowship, he’s tempted to take a job at a men’s dining club as a serving boy. The uniforms are skimpy, and he’s expected to remove an item of clothing after each course. He can handle that, but he soon discovers there’s more on the menu here than fine cuisine. How far will he go to pay his tuition, and will money get in the way when he realizes he’s interested in more from one of his gentlemen?

Brice Martin is an attorney for a Silicon Valley venture capital firm. When he’s asked to take a client to the infamous Dinner Club, he finds himself unexpectedly turned on by the atmosphere and especially by his server, Remy. He senses there’s more to the sexy young man than meets the eye. The paradox fascinates him, and he can’t get enough of Remy.

Their relationship quickly extends beyond the club and sex. But the trust and affection they’ve worked to achieve may crumble when Jeremy discovers Brice’s VC firm is the one that pulled the plug on PharmaTek—and Jeremy’s research grant.

I always enjoy reading EM Lynley's books. Her attention to detail is incredible. You can just tell that her research is spot on and add in her sexy characters and you have the recipe for a very enjoyable read. This one is a lot of fun, the location alone is hot as all get out. I liked this book a lot, her books are always a pleasure to read.
Jeremy Is a doctorate student working on an important HIV drug. The problem with research is that someone has to pay for it and Pharma-tek is having trouble convincing the venture capitalists to stick with it. So for money, Jeremy tutors undergrads in the sciences. Unfortunately, they need tutors in other fields. Now he is struggling to make ends meet. While at the gym, he is approached about an interesting job offer. Seems there is a Dinner Club that needs waiters to entertain the diners. And by the end of dinner service, they are naked. He isn't sure about it, but then he is informed that he doesn't have to allow anything he isn't comfortable with. And although sex isn't "sold" at the club, after the service, they can choose to go to the rooms upstairs and have a nightcap with their customer. And the more you do, the more money you can make. Hundreds of dollars a night is possible. The diners are anonymous, only identified by a color that matches the one on them. He is intrigued, if not a bit scared, but he decides to try it. His first night is an eye opener. He is given Mr. Green, Brice, who is only there because he had to bring a client to the club. Mr. Green is smitten with "Remy" and vice versa. Once their night is over, Remy decides that it was a lot of fun and he gets a different diner the same night Mr. Green is there. Although all is ok, both of them want to see the other and they become a regular grouping. But then things get complicated. How do they possibly transition to a relationship outside of the club? Not to mention the fact that they are not supposed to talk to each other outside of the venue. And when Jeremy's funding gets cut by Brice's VC group, trouble is all around.
Can they navigate the tricky dynamics of going from a paid arrangement to a normal relationship? And can Brice sit by an watch his man go to work at the club when he knows how it works? And what will happen to Jeremy's life saving research if he loses his funding? There are so many tricky issues to be explored in this book. And the sexiness is off the charts hot. These characters are so much fun to explore. I am looking forward to what this author writes next because I know no matter what, it is going to be a great read!
