I’ve done it. I’ve stuck a whopping two fingers up at my parents, I’ve made a name for myself as one of the world’s biggest porn stars and I’ve finally found a family I belong in.
Life is amazing. I get paid to do all my favourite things. Fuck. Party. Travel the world. What’s not to love?
And then he comes along. Mason George – Back Door Studio’s newest exclusive model and the guy who has the potential to either fuck it all up, or take me on the best ride of my life.
I’m desperate. I’ve got nothing and nobody left. Entering the daunting world of adult entertainment is less of a dream and more of a necessity. Signing as Back Door Studio’s latest model has the ability to either ruin or make me, but I made a vow at my first audition never to let myself regret it.
I continue to question myself each day, but no amount of what’s, why’s or what ifs will change where I am or where I’m heading. Am I strong enough to do this? To embrace it? To enjoy it? I have no idea.
The only thing I’m certain of, is that if anyone can teach me who I’m supposed to be, it’s Ryder Richardson.
“Because the most exciting things in life always happen via the back door”
This is the story of Ryder Richardson. He's made a good name for himself as one of the most famous gay pornstars and finally found the place where he feels at home. Come-on is there anything better than getting paid major dollars to FUCK hot guys, see the world and live a fun filled life. Now enters Mason George from Back Door Studios...(what a cool name for a gay porn studio) he's the newest exclusive model and possibly the best ride that Ryder will ever have.
Ryder is quite damaged from his past and you will see just how damaged his life was. You will understand why he choses gay porn for a career as this is the first place that he feels completely accepted for who he is. Mason has not had the life that Ryder has but he's grieving the loss of his mother. So with no one left in his life he heads out on his own and finds his way to Back Door Studios. Mason is very different from Ryder as he realizes that he has chosen this direction in his life until he can figure what he actually wants, that is until he meets Ryder.
I completely fell in love with these characters and how the author wrote about this industry, she wrote a very real and authentic account of how most guys turn to porn. I loved how Ryder and Mason had no one in their lives and they found each other in a world of sex and hurt. Even with their pain they found love! I truly cared deeply for these characters and I felt a huge connection with them. Nicola Haken did an amazing job with Taming Ryder that I recommend it to anyone who wants to read a beautifully written MM novel!!!
“It’s only temporary,” I corrected. “I’m looking for my own place.” Matt sat down beside me on the bed, crossing his ankles and scanning the room. “What are you doing in here anyway?”
“Bored. Saw and Jake are still sorting through shit with the big man.”
“You know they’re filming right now?”
“Who?” he asked, looking puzzled. “Not that old guy?” he added, wrinkling his nose as he looked Mark up and down.
“That’s the photographer,” I explained, smiling in amusement. “They’re just taking a break. Ry needs to, um, regain focus.”
“What do you mea…oooooh. Captain Horn’s gone off duty, huh.”
Ryder once told me he prided himself on never having to take a fluff break, so this was yet more confirmation that he wasn’t himself.
“They’re back,” I said, nodding towards the other end of the room. “If you don’t wanna see it, now’s the time to escape.”
“It’s just fucking, man,” he shrugged. “Nothin’ else to do around here.”
“Then the second Ivan says ‘we’re on’ you gotta be real quiet.”
I suspected that was going to be quite a challenge for Matt, until I saw him watching Ry and Taylor get into position with what looked like curiosity in his eyes. He soon lost interest and started looking around the room, tapping his fingers against his legs as if he were playing the drums.
I caught myself watching them too. Every time Ryder’s hand brushed against Taylor’s bare skin I couldn’t help remembering what it felt like when he did that to me, the way his soft fingers trailed along my arm, making the hairs there stand on edge in the wake of his touch…and yet now he rarely even sat next to me.
Frustrated, I tipped my head back and closed my eyes, only to have them fly back open when Matt shoved into my shoulder.
“Dude is he…” he stared across the room at the bed where Ryder and Taylor were filming, his face wrinkled up and cocked to one side. “Holy fuck he is! Four! Four fucking fingers!”
I followed Matt’s gaze and sure enough Taylor was about to stick a fourth finger into Ryder’s ass. I chuckled quietly, shaking my head at Matt’s reaction.
“I feel like I’ve just had acid thrown into my eyes,” he said, yet funnily enough didn’t take his eyes off the scene. “How is that even possible?”
“What do you mean?”
“It’s an ass! They’re like tiny holes. How the fuck is he getting all those fingers up there?”
“They’re surprisingly stretchy,” I said, trying to reign in my laughter so I didn’t interrupt the scene.
“Well I tried sticking two up a chicks ass once and she screamed the fucking place down. She seemed like my usual type too.”
“And what’s that?”
“Up for anything. There’s nothing better than a hot, tight ass. But I’m sure you know that already.”
“Yeah,” I agreed, smiling.
We spent the rest of the shoot pretty quiet but I did notice Matt’s eyes wander over to the bed a few times. He looked more curious than anything and it was really quite amusing. In all honesty, I was surprised he didn’t bail the second Taylor unwrapped the condom.
I live in Rochdale, England with my wonderful family and when I’m not playing with my imaginary friends I can usually be found looking after my four adorable (sometimes!) children (six if you include the dogs, seven if you include the hubby!) or stalking gay porn stars!
All in all I’m just an ordinary mum with an addiction to reading about hot book guys, writing about hot book guys, tattoos and Pepsi Max! Oh, and if my kids ever ask… I moonlight as the Pink Power Ranger
