Was it six years ago that this series began? As a true lover of Amy Lane, I find it extraordinary the amount of tears I have shed…The Queen of angst with a capital A, the woman never ceases to amaze me with her writing.
Then again if you look over the 10 or so years I have been reading her work, this fine author has written so many genres, it could make your head spin. Greens Hill was her beginning for me. It was the fantasy world of vampires, were wolves, fairies, angels and Cory, Green and Bracken…..Dusting herself off we had a sci-fi with A Solid Core of Alpha, Historical with Beneath the Brambles, not to mention Deacon and Crick and entourage in Promise Rock. Shifting to WW2 with The Bells of Time Square. See what I mean?
Her virtues extolled, I come back to this series, like I never left it. Again like all her writing, the reader is so drawn in, we know these people, like family. The “Boys” are growing up, growing out of porn, one year at a time. Chase, Dex, Ethan, John are still g here, only thing are changing at Johnnies, like the times.
Vern Roberts comes to town, leaving his Mom and his girlfriend back home in the small town of Dogpatch. With the promise of work in construction, he leaves for Sacramento to earn enough money to bring his Mom away as well. The job does not work out, so waiting tables he meets the guys at Johnnies, and one thing and another he is now Bobby Green the Porn Star!
The fear he had at his first scene, was stilled by the sweet guy holding the lights . Reg Williams has been burdened since he was a child with a sister with mental illness. With no schooling Johnnies has supported them and he is one of the older Johnnies stars. His lack of education has people seeing him as a dummy, making him believe that.
This story of the two of them finding each other is the magic only Amy Lane can write.
The emotions you must go through for these two young men is so worth it !! So I can only advise PLENTY of tissues and a ‘beverage’ of choice for the reader, because you are going on the ride of your life. Loved it….
