Fame and Fortune…Excerpt , Review, Giveaway
Love should be multiplied, not divided!
Welcome to the All Cocks house!
Hello everyone, and thank you, Cathy, for hosting me today. I thought I’d share some insight into the house on Mamaroneck Island that Victor, Andrew, and Mattie call home. The models refer to it as the All Cocks house, because it is their home base outside of the studio in the city. When I started writing the series, I knew I wanted to base it in NYC, but I wanted the throuple to have a home away from all the madness in the city. I researched outlying areas that were driving distance to the city while being quaint and maybe a little secluded. I settled on Mamaroneck because I wanted a house on the water, I mean how much fun will I have writing scenes that are set on water?!
An excerpt from Fame and Fortune
When Victor first brought Andrew out to the house they now owned on Mamaroneck Island he thought it was too much, too big for just the two of them. Victor had come prepared for that reaction, though, explaining his plan as they walked from room to room. How Victor wanted their small company to become an extended family of sorts. The models could stay with them and shoot out at the house sometimes. The attic could be their office away from the office. “There are seven bedrooms Victor, what the fuck are we going to do with seven bedrooms?” Andrew asked, still a little overwhelmed at the thought of investing in such a large home.
“We set one up for shooting scenes here, the other we use for models. They stay for shoot or if they need home. Fame, fortune and a family Andrew, this is what I am wanting for you, for us.” Victor led Andrew into the master bedroom to a picnic basket, blanket and pillows all set up beside the fireplace where a fire was already burning beautifully. They ate and talked, Andrew finally coming around to the idea and sharing things he wanted to do to the home with Victor.
Yeah it’s a big ass house, but Victor holds to his promise to fill it. Before it’s all said and done, I think they might even have a few little ones running up and down the stairs of their large estate. But that’s waaaaaaaay down the road. For now I think this throuple will be happy with the different models that come and stay at the house sporadically, their extended family of sorts. Can’t you just imagine the holiday parties? I can and I want to go!

My review for Fame and Fortune
Meows 4 Purrs ( so hot you need a cold shower)
Fame and fortune is a very sweet romance between three loving men. Though Victor and Andrew have been partners for ten years, they both felt something for the sweet angelic looking boy Mattie when he showed up for a job. Both men could tell he was broken and not ready for porn shoots. When Mattie finally insists they set him up, and none of them was prepared for Mattie’s reaction. Now Mattie has to tell Victor and Andrew about his past abuse.
I must warn you if you’re susceptible to triggers, there are back flashes of gang rape and date rape drugs. I will say That TM handled it with finesse, and the story has a lot of light moments and sensual loving sex to soften the harsh scenes.
I loved all the characters and the main storyline of the coming to term with the change in their relationship.
I will say that the story begins moving fast and skipping quickly through years. I would have liked to have seen more of the things that happened than short paragraphs telling us about them. There were a few places where the author told us of things that happened between other characters ( from the first book) that I personally felt should have been left out and this book the first. Now having said that; I still loved this story and all of these men and cannot wait for the next book–Jon and Kory–and all the others. (Yes I read all the small print at the end that tells what’s coming soon!)
I highly recommend this if you like gay new adult romance, angst, threesomes, menage, hot man-sex and allover fun, sexy romance!
