    There's not many people do this type of sexual exploration and awakening quite as well as Jay does as far as I'm concerned.

    He's a master at not only handling the awkwardness of someone realising their sexuality isn't what they'd always expected, but also at bringing in the inadvertent hurt that can come alongside someone exploring how they express gender as well.

    With this one, there's a double dose of confusion as each of the men in this pairing has some way to go in working out just what their

    There's not many people do this type of sexual exploration and awakening quite as well as Jay does as far as I'm concerned.

    He's a master at not only handling the awkwardness of someone realising their sexuality isn't what they'd always expected, but also at bringing in the inadvertent hurt that can come alongside someone exploring how they express gender as well.

    With this one, there's a double dose of confusion as each of the men in this pairing has some way to go in working out just what their emotions are telling them.

    For Wicksy aka Simon, it's knowing that underneath the sexy hot Lady Gogo is a man and coming to terms with the fact he loves the femininity of a drag queen but also the male bodily parts.

    For Charlie it's realising that exploring his feminine side doesn't necessarily mean he wants to change his gender and become a woman.

    Together the progression of their relationship starts as a hot and a little bit kinky hook up and moves into genuine feelings as Charlie's feminine layers peel back more and Simon continues to be attracted to the person he finds underneath.

    The sex in this starts off all kinky and dirty talk, which both men are turned on by, it's not just Simon pretending he's with a woman, but turns into a very much mutually loving connection.

    Most of the angst comes from Simon working his way through his feelings about Charlie's gender and how he deals with it felt relatable to me.

    I loved both characters, they're each full of awareness that they could be on the verge of something special and their relatively young ages (20 and 24) never actually came across as anything other than mature enough to know their own minds.

    There's great support from the other Rainbow Place cast and we get to meet journalist Quentin again, who I hope is going to be the subject of book five.

    No sign of his significant other on the horizon though if it will be his romance next. This whole series is a delight though.

    is aptly titled. Simon (Wicksy to his mates and Cam's best friend from book 2) is a rugby player; he's masculine and likes to get dirty. When Simon sees the stunning Lady Gogo, he can't look away.

    Charlie (aka Lady Gogo) loves to explore his feminine side. Drag makes him brave and bold. He can embrace the Lady Gogo persona without shame. He just wishes he could do the same when he's not in costume.

    Simon understands that Charlie is a man, but Simon loves the feminine, so Charlie as Lady Gogo, with lipstick and lacy panties, does him in. As Simon and Charlie spend more time together, Simon starts to think of Charlie as a "he" versus a "she" and begins to question his own sexuality (is he bi? pan?).

    Meanwhile, Charlie wonders how "girly" he wants to be. Is he transgender or gender fluid? Jay handles these topics with sensitivity and grace.

    The sex scenes in this book are kinky and sensual. The MCs have a real connection that moves beyond gender.

    I loved the secondary characters, including Simon and Charlie's awesome moms. I understood Simon's fear of changing the way everyone perceived him, but I also got why Charlie didn't want to be anyone's dirty little secret.

    The ending is a HFN, appropriate since Charlie is 20 and Simon is 24. I would have liked an epilogue set further in the future, but I very much enjoyed this story.

    Charlie has always tried to hide his feminine side,never really having the courage to explore it.So when he has the opportunity to take part in a talent contest he can finally go there,so to speak,when he creates the fabulous Lady Gogo.But after the act is over and the make up is removed and the costumes put away he finds he's still not completely comfortable in his own skin.He starts to question his identity...

    Simon (Wicksy) always considered himself straight but he's more than a bit fascinated by Lady Gogo.He knows under the hair and make up it's really a man and almost convinces himself it's ok because Charlie looks like a woman.He's never even considered the possibility of being bi or gay....

    Charlie slowly starts to accept/recognize his gender fluidity and I just wanted to wrap him up and hug him as he struggled with his emotions and what he felt comfortable with and not what others expected him to be.

    The portrayal of Simon's struggle in accepting his own sexuality was very well done.I didn't warm to his character at first but I definitely understood him and I'm sure his character is very true to life. Coming out and admitting your sexual orientation must be extremely difficult.

    Another great addition to this enjoyable series.

    Recommend Read.

    This is the 4th book in the Rainbow Place series.

    It features Wicksy (Cam's housemate from book 2) along with Charlie (aka Lady Gogo who appears in book 3). It was fun to write. I always love self-discovery stories, and this one has a double helping with both sexuality and gender questioning.

    If you decide to give it a try I hope you enjoy it :)
