Waiting on Wednesday - Riptide Rentboys by Rachel Haimowitz

"Waiting On" Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone's excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine).

Riptide Rentboys: The 2012 Collection by Rachel Haimowitz

Satisfaction guaranteed.

Sex for hire is among our naughtiest fantasies, be it with a $10 street rat or a $1,000-an-hour elite escort. As long as there's been sex, there's been sex for sale, and this collection explores the depth and breadth of the characters and worlds in which you can find it.

In Where You Hurt the Most, a high-class escort and scarred young man find unexpected familiar ground. They soon learn that while it's true that love can't heal all wounds, it is the surest balm for where you hurt the most.

In Priceless, a student hooking to pay tuition is purchased as a secret birthday present for his intellectual idol. The attraction is mutual, but how do you build a relationship on a foundation of lies?

In Cruce de Caminos, desperation drives a street kid to a critical crossroads. Will he make the right decision, or will the floodwaters bound for New Orleans sweep him away?

In Necessity's Door, an openly gay detective goes undercover as a prostitute to catch a crime boss with a taste for pretty young rentboys. But the op is fraught with difficulties, and there's much more at stake than a simple case.[Aug 6, 2012]

Candace absolutely insisted we give this one a place of honour as our WOW post for the week . . . and, you know what, she just may be onto something!
