Fame and Fortune by TM Smith: Audiobook Tour, Review and Giveaway

 

 An All Cocks Story book #2

synopsis
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 were still perfectly happy, they didn’t even realize something was missing, until they met a broken young man that needed 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.*

paula review

 

I think TM Smith picked the perfect narrator for this story. Joel Leslie did an amazing job. His voice fit the characters’ voices that I heard in my head. I really loved how Victor sounded.

I was so excited to read Victor, Andrew, and Mattie’s story. They caught my attention in the first book and I was hoping we would get their story. In this book we get the backstory on how Andrew and Victor met and how All Cocks came to be. Then later down the road how Mattie came to be part of their life. Mattie’s story just broke my heart. He is such a strong young man to go through what he did and how he was treated in the aftermath and survive it without giving up. Then to go from homeless to living with Andrew and Victor. The way that Andrew and Victor were protective of Mattie was really endearing. Even when he was trying to set up his first scene and they kept giving him other things to do because they really didn’t want him to do the scene. Then how they handled it when he finally had his breakdown about what happened to him. I really liked the way that Andrew and Victor waited to bring Mattie into their relationship until they felt that he was ready and how well they integrated him into it. No jealousy or fighting, just a whole lot of love.
