Review: Einstein's Peep Show by Josephine Myles

Nerdy by day, naughty by night!

Nathan Wright has a secret life. During the day he’s a dedicated student, working hard for his maths degree. But times are tough, and in order to make ends meet by night he becomes “Einstein”, wooing punters with his online solo sex show. Still wounded by his last dysfunctional relationship, Nathan’s happy being single. But when his highest tipping client demands it, Einstein has to overcome his social awkwardness to rope in some extra help.

Party boy Rory Jones has never given his geeky neighbour a second glance, but he’s not one to turn down the offer of a free blow job, even when Nathan tells him it’s going online. Once on camera, Rory discovers his exhibitionist streak and the two of them are so hot together, the one-off becomes a regular gig.

But being neighbours with benefits isn’t without its challenges. Nathan’s client keeps wanting more, and he finds himself pushed into a role he’s not prepared for. Meanwhile Rory’s growing affection leaves him worried his ultra-rational lover won’t ever be able to share his emotions. If he and Nathan can’t find something more than great sex in common, they’ll be left with the square root of absolute zero.

Nerdy to dirty... exhibitionism... neighbours to lovers... what's not to love?

Written in Josephine Myles straightforward, English at it's core, style this short was a fun and sexy little read. Nathan is such a geek. Even though he performs sex on camera it's all about the bottom line and the quickest/easiest way to make money to support his education. His education and research and learning is the most important thing in his life, everything else revolves around it. No time for love, especially when he'd been burnt before.

Rory is pretty much Nathan's opposite - but who says no to a blowjob? Even if it's on camera. (That is a rhetorical question, I'm sure there are plenty of people who would say no, just not Rory and not in this story.) I loved how he made sure Nathan enjoyed himself as well as earning money. He helped Nathan believe in the good of people again - and of course, in love.

I love Jo Myles' writing, she is one of those authors who I would always rather have more with, than less. greedy much?? Well yes1 I enjoy her shorter stories but I LOVE her longer ones and so I always wish even her shorts were long, hence the rating. We could say it's a not her it's me situation. In fact let's say that, as there is nothing wrong with the writing at all, it is everything Myles does well but I wanted the expanded version. 

I would absolutely recommend this story, especially to those who prefer their stories short and sexy.

Author bio:
English through and through, Josephine Myles is addicted to tea and busy cultivating a reputation for eccentricity. She writes gay erotica and romance, but finds the erotica keeps cuddling up to the romance, and the romance keeps corrupting the erotica. Jo blames her rebellious muse but he never listens to her anyway, no matter how much she threatens him with a big stick. She’s beginning to suspect he enjoys it.
Jo publishes regularly with Samhain, and now has over ten novels and novellas under her belt. Her novel Stuff won the 2014 Rainbow Award for Best Bisexual Romance, and her novella Merry Gentlemen won the 2014 Rainbow Award for Best Gay Romantic Comedy. She has also been known to edit anthologies and self-publish on occasion, although she prefers to leave the “boring bits” of the ebook creation process to someone else. She loves to be busy, and is currently having fun trying to work out how she is going to fit in her love of writing, dressmaking and attending cabaret shows in fabulous clothing around the demands of a preteen with special needs and an energetic toddler.
