Christian Blake is gay but he re-entered the closetJamaican-Canadian yay! Hello, he’s a graduate student! Poor Blake belleah so broke he answers a roommate request to live a “heritage house” questionable with four other male roommates.
The hose is swarming with different personalities, backgrounds and cultures. It was such a delight to bellsau. One of my favorite things about this story is the difference between the five roommates and the multicultural approach. Major kudos to Heidi – well that and the Jake Bass references because I have a supercrush But Christian does end up falling for one of his roommates, Max, a secretive, snarky, tattooed, tongue-pierced, sexy ,little, lithe bit of yum who has a penchant for wearing superhero themed underwear.
Christian has to remained buttoned up and boring but he can’t help but lust after Max who he suspects to be a bad boy involved in illegal activities.
Apple Polisher (Rear Entrance Video #1) by Heidi Belleau
Christian can’t do anything about that, no matter how tempted he is. Especially since his favorite aunt who is battling cancer and owner of a small porn store Rear Entrance Videos which is tanking, needs Christian’s attention and help. Christian has no time for relationships, fuck buddies or whatnot. Besides he doesn’t even like Max Max and Christian’s bicker-flirting made me smile.
A favorite of mine: Don’t know why, but I see you with that shirt buttoned up all the way and I know I need to fuck you. I think Max described Christian perfectly: He’s not perfect and I don’t expect him to be. Max was a great foil to Christian’s stuffiness. And when he enticed Christian to take a walk on the wild side, I loved it. Also the story is not one long literary porn scene. There’s much more than just sex even with Christian working in a porn store though there was at least one accidental exhibition scene- I loved it.
The narration of the story from Christian’s POV was humorous, sad and hopeful at times. It went up and down but never hitting extreme peaks with the emotional angle. There’s no unwarranted drama thrown in for drama’s sake. It read so normal it felt like wrapping in your most comfiest blanket on a cold day.
It was a comfort read for me, sometimes those are the best. All secrets are revealed Max’s I did not expect but it was not a dealbreaker for me. The ending was great and realistic. I look forward to reading more from this series in the future. And book 2 Wallflower looks like it’s going to be a doozy in a good way. There are many things that made this story great: Heidi Belleau, it seems you have a fan in me.

I really really enjoyed this author’s First Impressions Second Chances and wanted to check out more of her stories. I didn’t love this one as much, but I didn’t expect to, that LHNB story was just awesomesauce lovely. There is a lot going on in this book, lots of secrets being kept and as the first in a series it has to set the stage for the following books.
Christian has his goal and he is going to succeed, even if it kills him, well maybe not kill him, but damages who he really is.
At the belleaau o I really really enjoyed this author’s First Impressions Second Chances and wanted to check out more of her stories. At the end of the day, he has his heart in the right place, gets his priorities straight and also realized that maybe he was putting more pressure on himself than was necessary.

Max, oh boy, since we don’t really get his POV, it’s hard to know what he is really thinking or feeling a lot of the times, at least for me, but I liked him. The other guys round out the whole group, I loved Aunt Bev, wasn’t thrilled with Sandra, because I dislike slapping, a lot. No matter the reason she felt justified, it never is. There were some twists, like Max’s secret and the professor. View all 3 comments. This book gets an automatic five stars because there’s a gay black man on the cover.
Some writers still seem to think “gay” automatically equals “Caucasian”. Silly fools, get a grip! I just finished Apple Polisher and yes, it was pretty much everything I hoped it would be. Christian Blake was such a complex character and I could sympathize with many of hi This book gets an automatic five stars because there’s a gay black man on the cover. Christian Blake was such a complex character and I could sympathize with many of his struggles to just be true to himself.
I wouldn’t call his over-achieving, up-tight, re-closeted exterior ‘flaws’, but a very real dilemma that many PoC face. In spite of this, and making mistakes, when his aunt Beverly needed him to save her business, he was there. Max was a perfect match for the straight-laced Christopher. Brash on the outside, lovable and loyal geek on the inside. It was quite clear that he saw beneath Christoper’s facade and yet that brash tell-it-like-it-is was what the other man needed.
The superhero underwear was a hilarious twist. The other twist regarding where his money came from came from left field, and yet did not feel as if tossed in for shock value.
I really enjoyed the scenes inside of Rear Entry Video great name. They read true to life sans judgment. One never knows what kinks the most “normal” people get into and I loved the fact the customers came from different backgrounds. Aunt Beverly sounds like a woman I’d love to know, and I’m plenty curious as to what made her purchase an adult video and toy store.
Even the tart-tongued but concerned roomie Sandra was great. Yay, no genderfail either! The female characters were treated evenhandedly. There was the strong-willed and loving aunt Beverly, the thieving little witch Melissa whom I just wanted to bitch slap and the loyal yet tart-tongued Sandra.
Speaking of roommates, even though the focus was really on Christopher and Max’s relationship, I didn’t feel the others were shortchanged.
The only one who was problematic for me personally was Rob. I’m not saying the author was purposely stereotyping him since I’ve read some of her past work.
It’s just that Rob’s characterization just felt wrong, even though I have a heads-up as to his story. Outside of this highly personal issue, I loved this book and can’t wait for the next one in the series–which coincidentally is Rob’s story. So, there may be more to him than meets the eye.
Again, Heidi Belleau is to be commended for showcasing a multicultural cast.
