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.

Yeah, I would. There are a few glitches with the story and narration, but overall, it was an enjoyable listen.
I would have explored certain aspects of Jeremy and Brice's relationship more thoroughly.
Brice. Perhaps because Jeremy was sort of written and read as a teenager in a way. Lot's of missunderstandings, jumping to the wrong conclusion and angst with him. Brice is older and more secure.
Yes, but it took a couple of days.
As I states above, this was an enjoyable read. My main issues were the angst in an adult book, I really don't like to have to hunt down my characters emotions. The way Jeremy changed his mind from one second to the next a lot, jumped to so many conclusions, angst. He's a PHd working on amazing stuff, but he's written like a teenager.
I did like this whole Dirty Dining aspect with the dinner club and the boys are the important items on the menu. Color coding the gentleman's identity, very ingenious and I quite liked it. Especially at the end with the whole, Officer and a Gentleman reference.
Narration was pretty good as well, I liked the different tones and inflections he used for the characters. My only issue with the narrator was, listening you know you're jumping forward, changing POV or chapter, but he didn't put any space between these things. A short few second pause would have been nice, I felt at times like he was running a marathon.
