Review, Interview and Giveaway: Fame and Fortune by TM Smith (All Cocks Book 2)

Blurb:
Victor Dimir moved to America with his traditional Romanian parents when he was just a child. His Romani parents taught him their traditions and how to be a shrewd business man. But it was the attention of a classmate at school that taught a teenage Victor about his sexuality. When he came out to his parents he knew it would be difficult for them to understand, but he never expected them to disown him.

Andrew Jones grew up with a single mom and his grandmother teaching him about life, he had an absentee father at best. The only thing the man ever did for Andy that stuck was buy him a camera for his thirteenth birthday. When Andrew went off to college on a scholarship to study photo journalism, he wound up falling in love with his Romanian roommate.

They became inseparable and wound up starting their own business together; a gay porn website where people could go and watch romantic gay porn instead of the rough and tough, or wham bam thank you man crap that was flooding the internet at that time. After ten years together they are perfectly happy, they don’t even realize something was missing, until they meet a broken young man that needs a family.

Matthew Carlson was homeless, jobless and broken. He’d been on his own since he was sixteen when he ran away from home after being brutally assaulted by several other young men that he thought were his friends, and then being told he brought it on himself for being gay by his parents. Matthew has done a lot of things these last few years just to get by. When he finds the flyer for All Cocks, he decides to call and see where it leads. What has he got to lose?

Matthew has deep rooted scars that aren’t usually visible on the outside. But when he walks into All Cocks, both Victor and Andrew see them, they also see him. Can three men that didn’t even realize they needed each other get past the stigma of society to find a place of happiness, together?

Advisory warning: This story contains a scene of sexual assault.

Review:
This was an interesting look at how Victor, Andrew and Matthew got together and a highlight of how they made the relationship work through time and adversity. The beginning of their throuple was slow and there were many pitfalls along the way. But the three of them together are beautiful. I felt so bad for Matthew and his past. He worked hard to overcome the baggage.  I admired how he did the sensible thing and got the counseling he needed. Andrew is such an amazing support for Matthew. And Victor was perfect with how he cares for both of them and gives them what they need. The ending is beautiful though. You can feel their love. I continue to fall in love with the characters of this series. In the first book some events were referenced that we see a bit more in this story since it takes place before the events of the first book. However you don’t need to read the first book to enjoy this one. I truly hope there will be more stories in this series because all of the characters need their happy endings.

Character Interview:
One of the models from All Cocks stops by for an interview today. Jordan is so nice to talk with us. Before I get to the interview I thought I’d share a picture of him. Read and enjoy!

Molly: Thanks for taking the time to stop by today Jordan.
Jordan: Of course, anything I can do for TM.
Molly: Tell us how you got into the porn industry.
Jordan: I was doing straight porn to pay my way through college but it still wasn’t enough and I was starting to think I’d need a second job as well, which would have made classes and shoots hard to manage. Then my friend Lincoln told me about a sweet gig he landed with an online gay porn company, All Cocks, so I set up an interview and the rest is history.
Molly: What are you studying in college?
Jordan: I’m in Medical school but I’ve been off this past year concentrating on moving behind the camera at All Cocks. I plan on going back next year and diving into my residency work.
Molly: As a straight gay for pay model, what challenges do you face in the industry?
Jordan: Excellent question Molly. I lost some friends early on when I first started that assumed I was gay and chose this line of work as an excuse to ‘pretend’ to be straight while getting my rocks off with guys on camera. That leads to the biggest challenge for me personally, performance anxiety. If I’m not even remotely attracted to a guy it’s difficult to keep certain body parts excited. That’s when I have to bust out the goodie bag I kept with me at all times when I was filming full time. And sadly, there have been some young ladies that I would have wanted to pursue a relationship with that couldn’t get past the fact that I screw guys for a living.
Molly: That must be lonely. Tell me, have you found a lady friend that can look past the glitz and glamour and see the real you, appreciate what you have to offer as a man?
Jordan: Why yes, yes I have. But we are keeping it on the down low so lets move on to the next question.
Molly: We are about out of time, just one more, what can we expect in the coming year from All Cocks inc.?
Jordan: Lots of old favorites and new additions. We just brought on two new models but we lost Gabe and I think Chris and Linc aren’t long for leaving as far as doing shoots either. I’ve moved behind the camera for the most part and I’m loving my new job and responsibilities. Love on the Docks was such a huge success that we’ve decided to do another full length movie comprised of several shorter scenes with a prison setting. It would seem a lot of our members on the site want some prison guard, prisoner stories to watch before bed.
Molly: Thank you for stopping by today Jordan and taking the time to answer my questions. Hope we can visit again soon!
Jordan: You are very welcome!
