Aleksandr Voinov - L. A. Witt - If It Flies
_If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it’s cheaper to rent it._ Spencer is in a rut. Long hours at the law firm are sucking the life out of him, and he doesn’t have time or energy for a relationship. He’s lonely, horny, and itching for something new, so he tries the Market Garden, an exclusive—and expensive—brothel. Spencer isn’t in the door five minutes before a cocky rentboy makes his move. Nick isn’t just any rentboy, though. He’s a Dom, he’s a sadist, and he’s everything Spencer didn’t know he was missing. One night turns into more, and before long, Spencer is one of Nick’s regular clients. Both men think they’re just scratching each other’s backs: Spencer’s exploring a submissive, masochistic side he never knew he had, and Nick is getting off and getting paid. But as time goes on, it’s clear their strictly professional arrangement . . . isn’t, and if Nick has one hard limit, it’s that he doesn’t get romantically entangled with his johns. The problem is, while Nick doesn't want to be owned, Spencer’s no longer content with just renting.

"Just when I think I'm getting a better understanding of what I am, something else comes by and knocks me on my ass." My morning started very eventful. A rendezvous with Adriel is more than a notion.

“Just when I thought I had enough on my plate... fate, or the cosmos or whatever, decides I'm not stressed enough and pours on another helping of what the hell!” My failure to prevent a particularly nasty demon from completing a ritual to open a portal may have doomed us all unless I can stop what came through. That, of course, is easier said than done. Because what came through happens to be one of the most sadistic and dangerous demons that the eighth level of hell could spit out. I may be a powerful soul-eating demon, but even I don’t think that I’m a match for this demon. I know one thing, I’m going to need help.
