Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be meeting Slave Boy. Here he is in Las Vegas, captured in the wild by Jordan Castillo Price, just for me. Thanks, Jordan!
It’s a bit odd that a tattoo parlor is advertising using a photoshopped tattoo, isn’t it? Onward!
Once upon a time, a simple
was living a quiet life in
, until he was kidnapped by
, marked with
, taken to
, and sold as a
. He was quite the
at the slave auction, where he was purchased by a burly mistress… he thought. It was only later, when he and his new “mistress” were
that he realized
is not always what you get… or what gets you.

Hee hee, Slave Boy gets around. I’m thinking he’s not the naughty one here so much as he keeps encountering some pretty shady characters!

I have to admit I’m getting a bit sick and tired of seeing his face on so many m/m covers. Usually I’m oblivious to cover models but I notice him all the time. Surely there must by another twinky looking guy in the stock photography?!
Unlike Jen, I’m not sick of Slave Boy yet. I find him rather alluring. Unlike May who is bored with the whole thing.

He might be easy on the eye BUT can he knit? Or do the housework? Maybe he’ll find enough dust bunnies to make himself some clothes.
A recent post from Marina..I lied
Oh my! I knew it was coming, but I still laughed out loud when I got to the “She’s got balls” title. Now my dog is looking at me funny. Ahhh, a good start to an otherwise crappy day. Thanks for another great Misadventures, Chris!

And what is he, 16?
A recent post from trek..In which trek plays the name game
I was thrilled to have a crack at him.
Very good! I laughed out loud when I reached the Mia Watts title.
Slave boy is way too thin, and looks too young. I must agree with Mayhem
May, methinks your mom is on the edge of darkness….oh my.
A recent post from margene..Seriously
He does not look old enough to be legal! Kind of scary.
Mayhem almost fooled me…almost 😉
A recent post from Leontine..Guestblog-Giveaway with Kele Moon Who would you like to take out on a date
Poor boy must have a horrific crick in his neck by now! 🙂
A recent post from Lily..A Shared Range by Andrew Grey
OMG – best title story ever!
Soooo glad I wasn’t drinking anything as I read it.
Excellent! This is probably one of the best ones yet. I can’t decide if I’m tired of him or if I really like seeing him. He does draw the eye.
A recent post from wren..Friday Flotsam- Book Release- Mystery- A Wraith of Memory- and It Gets Better
he is an impostor anyway! I’m the real slave boy, dammit. 🙂
He doesn’t seem to need to shave.
May is looking very proper and disapproving.
Should be called “about to get a crick in the neck boy”..
Go with it May – just go with it…
*gasp* I missed the news about Dudleytown! Yay 🙂 Lol, that poster in the casino.
Poor Slave Boy’s life got awfully hectic, awfully fast. And the Mia Watts title — too funny! 🙂
A recent post from Val Kovalin..Wicked Cool is now available at All Romance Ebooks!
It continues to amaze me how you find these torrid titles. These boys really seem to get around. 😉
Meanwhile, Mayhem is just the sweet picture of innocence.
A recent post from Karen B…It comes but once a year
That was AWESOME, Chris! OMG! I was wondering how you’d work my title in there, but geez, you never disappoint. LOL.
Thanks for the link mention! Waxed slave boy gets around.
A recent post from katiebabs..The Harsh Statistics on Bullying It Gets Better!
LOVE it! This is definitely one of my favorites. And Slave Boy can grace as many covers as he wants. I’m not sick of seeing him yet. 😉
A recent post from Nicole..Weeks 38- 39 & 40- Book Review Catch-up
Ha ha, you TOLD me I was gonna run into a cover model at Photoshop World (getting fitted for a new blond wig or something, I’m sure) but I nearly fell over when I ran into Slave Boy. HEEEE!
Poor May has such a sad and disgusted face in that pic. 😉
Mia Watts title is the best part. LOL!
A recent post from Sydney..What I was doing when I should have been posting here
I always thought Slave Boy had a totally smooth chest, but I think I spot some chest hairs on The Red Sash cover. Um…wonder if they are real or photoshopped?
A recent post from Ava March..Excerpt – His Client
You’d think he’d throw his back out after standing like that for so long. 🙂
And look at Mayhem trying to act all innocent. Yeah, right. 🙂
A recent post from Tracy..What I Read Last Week
Possibly my most favorite of all time…might be the she got balls bit.
Mayhem looks super concerned. It’s a very cute facial expression.

A recent post from Eyre..A Funny for Tuesday
No, but I bet if you looked hard enough we could find some naughty black kitties…. Ohhhhhh what fun we (you) ((unless of course they shifted… then it would be me) would have if we could find those!!!
Hope all is well my friend! Miss you!
Hugs and is it Friday yet… Homecoming again this weekend… her own this time….
A recent post from Cecile..Guest Post with Ms Cherish DAngelo
Slave Boy definitely gets around Chris!! And it is interesting that a tattoo parlor would be using stock photography in Vegas for and advertisement! Great eye for all these covers and I LOVE misadventures story..
May – your are tooo funny..
A recent post from Lea..Please Welcome Jaci Burton for a Wild Rider Interview & Nauti And Wild – Giveaway!!
ROFLOL! That is one of your best 🙂
A recent post from orannia..Books 2010- September Update
Good one, Chris 😀
A recent post from Kris..m-m graphic novel appreciation series- melissas guest post pt 2
Definitely one of the best stories yet! But I’m amazed no one has yet commented on such a popular m/m cover model (stock photo or no) being used to advertise STRAIGHT Tattoo parlor.
Granted, I spend an inordinate time with teenage boys, but he does seem underage to me. However,the story line still rocks and I snorted when I got to Mia’s book title.
Photo shopped tattoo art for a tattoo parlor is bizarre. Maybe they have aspirations to do urban fantasy cover art?
And Jase? You can never be replaced.
~snuggles with my Bron~
That’s a nice photo of Mayhem.
He seems a bit boney. Perhaps May will share some of her kibble with him since he’s hard done by.
A recent post from mrspao..Gardening recap
I had no idea my coverboy was such a coverslut. A new one for your list. He’s my angel for my new title, Forsaking Eternity. I wonder how that would fit into your storyline here? LOL
A recent post from Voirey Linger..Wednesday Guest- Kim Knox
At least, I made him a prince. 🙂
Bless his heart ! Somebody give that boy a hamburger and a large chocolate shake. Wait up he turns 40… he’ll look back at these pictures and sigh at his skinny ‘lil self.
