(London Lads #4)
Genre: M/M, Romance
Ever wanted to spy secretly on other people’s lives?
Ken doesn’t have a choice: his student summer job is manning the CCTV screens for the new central London shopping mall. But instead of spotting criminals or vandals, he becomes fascinated by a cute waiter from the local bistro who sneaks out to the backyard for his break-and plays sexy to the camera.
Is he an old friend, or just an anonymous exhibitionist? Should Ken be excited by this naughty peepshow, or will people think he’s a voyeuristic pervert? Poor Ken’s confused and thrilled in turn. It’s like living in one of the movies he’s studying at university. He knows the man can’t see him, yet Ken feels a connection of some kind. It all encourages Ken to continue with his guilt-ridden Waiter Watch.
Ken bears the suspense as long as he can, until a chance meeting and an abortive blind date provide the explanation to the secret assignations. But will this guide Ken to a real-life chance of romance?
First Edition published by Amber Quill Press/Amber Allure, 2013.
Review: 4/5 Stars
So I have not had the pleasure of reading the first three books in the London Lad series. Which maybe I should fix pretty soon.
We have Ken who works at the mall monitoring the CCTV’s. Everything is business as usual until a new waiter starts to work at the mall, then Ken starts getting the show of his life. Now in the background you have Ken’s friend Simon who is trying to hook him up with another guy and the entire time, and up until Ken and the other guy meets, I’m thinking to myself why the heck isn’t Simon trying to get with the dude, but hey to each their own.
Ken doesn’t really want to go on the blind date, but he does it for Simon. And again, I have no idea why. But enter the guy Ken had a crush on in high school and Simon’s blind date is history.
Overall it’s a good book, it flows well, and to be a short story it pulls you in, because like Ken I wanted to know who the dude was giving Ken the free peep show.

Clare took the pen name London from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with the weekly wash, waiting for the far distant day when she can afford to give up her day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic and sexy characters.
Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter 3 stage and plenty of other projects in mind . . . she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home.
