David had a bright plan for his life, but that was all blown up after a tragic accident that took away the things that held the most meaning for him in his life. He found his way to California and reinvented himself as Dex, a top model for Johnnies, a porn company. He presents an image of normalcy to his coworkers, hiding the turmoil in his life that he’s never been able to resolve. But when one of his fellow models is kicked out of his home, Dex offers him a place to stay and soon discovers that they might just have more to offer each other than he thought at first glance.
This is the second book in a series, but I have not read the first one and had no problems following what was going on. It’s a largely self-contained story. The characters and story come across as very authentic and Amy Lane, as always, has written a story that it’s easy to get lost in while you’re reading. The emotions and complexity of the characters really shines through.
The only slight drawback I saw was that it probably could be just a bit shorter. There are a few places where I felt things dragged just a bit, but overall, it wasn’t enough to detract from my enjoyment of the story.
