Tailor Made by Josephine Myles

When Mr. Wrong measures up just right!

College tart Felix McAvoy is used to causing a stir with his conceptual art pranks, but for his final show he's planning something even more outrageous. In a last ditch attempt to seduce his jaded tutor, Felix plans to wear the canvas in a subversive display. However, if he's going to do this right he'll need a tailor-made canvas suit. Fortunately, he knows just the tailor to turn to for the favour—and Felix isn't shy about offering favours of a very different kind in return.

First year fashion student Andrew Wheeler knows Felix by reputation only—and plans to keep things that way. Andrew's determined to save himself for the man of his dreams, and Felix couldn't be more different from his ideal Mr. Right. There's only one use Andrew will contemplate for Felix's body: a model for his end of year project. Trouble is, it's going to involve a lot of close contact with a nearly naked Felix, and Andrew's never had temptation quite so close at hand!

I have to be critical about this story. The way it was written simply didn't fit the bill, or my taste. I wasn't convinced about this paired relationship at all, or about this love relationship at the end. Felix was superficial as a character, or he appeared to be as such. He used his body as a tool to get what he wanted, even if he used sex as a payment. I really didn't like his behavior. Felix was shameless and to use his body for his own means, felt wrong. I liked how Andrew described Felix as the equivalent of the Whore of Babylon. Maybe I didn't give Felix a chance but this plot wasn't written in a way which would let a reader believe that Felix would change or grow as a character.

I wouldn't mind Felix's behavior as such, if Andrew, as a character wouldn't fall so fast into his ploy. The part where Andrew took Felix measurements for his work, wasn't sexy or even funny. Andrew was described as being a reserved, shy character and a bit too serious. He wanted to fell in love with the right man and have his first sexual experience because of love. And this plotted story didn't give a damn about this. He nearly swallowed Felix's cock and who could judge him wrong at this scene, no one. It was simply wrong.

I can't accept this love story and I have to give it 2.5 stars.
