On Sin Row, the cops are more bent than the criminals…

Getting sexual favours from rent boys on Sin Row is a perk of the job for corrupt cop Blake Astor and his partner Ronnie Kemp.

When Io Spencer appears on the scene, though, Blake’s seldom-troubled heart gets involved.

When things escalate out of control, is he prepared to risk everything for Io?

You can’t buy love but if you’re a corrupt cop in the year 2120 you can seduce a rent boy for free. This is an intensely erotic story and sort of gritty. Io is easy to relate to because he’s in a situation where he’s powerless and being taken advantage of. He’s proud and keeps his sense of humor and shows a sort of emotional bravery in the face of this abuse. It’s sort of hard to relate to the corrupt cop, Blake, at first. Even though there’s obviously attraction and pleasure between him and the rent boy Io, he is taking advantage of Io.

Honestly? You want me to be honest? Okay, when I started reading this story, I intensely disliked Blake, but by page twenty-four I was beginning to root for him and Io to become something real to each other. That’s the beauty of Ms. Blackwell’s writing. She really knows how to lay the emotion on in a clear, crisp prose. It can sneak up on you. Truly she is an artist.

There’s lots of hot guy-on-guy-on-guy sex between Blake, Io and Ronnie, who is another corrupt cop. The sex is intense, very male and probably not for the faint of heart.

The story builds to a happy-for-now ending that is satisfying. Sin Row is a short, extremely erotic story that is emotionally compelling.
