'Whatever I gotta do to make sure we sleep in the same bed' - who knew that line could mean so damn much?! I just loved this book so much. More than Sidecar which is saying something cos I've read that about a dozen times.
P.s.the sex scenes were so hot they should come with a warning - not sure which I preferred: Kane topping Dex was hot, but when Dex topped it was freakin'' nuclear!!
The author's style was not professional, the writing was very choppy and 'out of the blue' - I'm not talking specifically about happenings, but how she went about introducing things and many, many (an overabundance, in fact) of side characters into the tale. I gave up, when once again I found myself wondering about who was who (she used both their real names, and their porn-star names, back and forth), and in which arc.
I may be reviewing this unfairly, but I'm comparing this to novels by 5* 'Keeper' authors such as Kaje Harper, Sue Brown and Lisa Worrall - and finding both the author and the tale lacking.
P.S - this came up as a freebie on ARe, so I got it and again went thru the stop/start thing, and this time round managed to finish it. It did have a tale and it ended in the start of a HEA, but I stand by my above comments, as the author really needs to read her work in her 'reader' shoes. It's confusing, has too many cooks in it, and she needs to imbue her characters with a bit more backbone.
Book 1 5 Stars
Book 2 4 Stars
Book 3 3.5 Stars
The first 3 Johnnies books (I haven't read book 4 yet) have a similar theme. Each of the men has gone to work at Johnnies not just for the excellent money but to get something they're lacking in their lives. The missing elements are the desire of a man, touch and embraces, lust or simple acceptance. It suggests that the men who chose this occupation are troubled in some way. All these men all have at least one person in their lives who won't accept them for who they are, so they find solace in each other's company.
Chase's story is a real rollercoaster of emotions. Living with his secret is tearing him apart and I wanted to hate him for stringing his girl friend along but couldn't find it in me. He does love her and he takes care of her, she's just not what he needs. Tommy is his future but Chase has painful decisions to make to get there.
Dex is like a big brother at Johnnies and takes Kane in as it's the decent thing to do. They have a lot they can learn from each other and tackle the ignorance and abuse thrown at them together.
I thought of Ethan as a big teddy bear and when he meets Jonah he wants to do what he sees as the right thing. In his mind it isn't right for pure innocent Jonah to be in a relationship with porn star Ethan.
Book 1 was definitely the best but the series overall is great. The characters are so painfully real at times, especially Chase, that I cried with them and felt their pain.
I look forward to reading book 4.
It's a shame that 'Roroblu's Mum' read this one first, and not the other way around, as that would obviously have helped her to understand and know the other characters. They may all work for a Gay-Porn film studio, and many of them star in front of the camera, but it didn't mean that they all enjoyed doing what they did, Dex being a case in point. He'd practically lost the will to live and was very much concentrating on NOT appearing in front of the camera, but unfortunately kept being pulled back again (only to fill in when someone was ill). I really hated that slimy git Scott, and was extremely glad that he got his comeuppance in the end. Carlos (Kane) was a lovely guy, and he and David (Dex-that was a touching tribute wasn't it!) really deserve their HEA, especially with Frances.
Just to let all interested parties know that the next book to be published in the series is 'Ethan Gold'.
