"I don't have what it takes to be a Friday Boy."
"There are different reasons men come to work for me."
"What do you mean?"
"It is not always about money. Even Nick. I think he came here for..." She stopped herself. Vesper decided it wasn't the right time to mention her thoughts on Nick. "Cale, I have only ever asked one other Western man to work for me."
"Nick told me that."
"I hope you take it as a compliment."
"I do, but I wouldn't even know how to start to take money from a woman for sex." Cale took a sip of his whiskey.
"I'll show you how." Vesper moved closer. Her voice was lowered, "I'll pay you fifty thousand NT an hour, over thirteen hundred U.S. dollars, for your time. I've already booked a suite."
Vesper looked at him like she had just suggested tea for two. She was offering a fortune. He found himself asking,
"You're testing me out?"
"No. You are testing me out."
Spanning continents and cultures, with steamy liaisons punctuated by moments of intense fraternal friendship, Friday Boys is a story of redemption set in a secretive world of lust and money.
