Dex in Blue (Johnnies #2) by Amy Lane

Dex in Blue (Johnnies, #2)Dex in Blue by Amy Lane
My rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Ten years ago David Worral had plans to go to college and the potential for a beautiful future in front of him. One tragic accident later, he fled to California and reinvented himself as Dex, top porn model of Johnnies.

Dex’s life is a tangled mess now, but the guys he works with only see the man who makes them believe even porn stars can lead normal lives. When Kane, one of Dex’s coworkers, gets kicked out of his house, the least Dex can do is give him a place to stay. Kane may be a hyperactive muscle-bound psycho, but he’s also a really nice guy. What could be the harm?

Except nothing is simple—not sex, not love, and not the goofy kid with the big dick and bigger heart who moves his life into Dex’s guest room. When they start negotiating fractured pasts and broken friends, Dex wonders if Kane’s honest nature can untangle the sadness that stalled his once-promising future. With Kane by his side, Dex just might be able to reclaim the boy he once was—and if he can do that, he can give Kane the home and the family he deserves.

Ms Lane, you do realise that is mean. To do that at the end. It's a good job I love your characters enough to forgive you. ;)
The opening scene of this book was sad, I started crying at 4%. The previous book Chase in Shadow was a painful book to read, I became so emotionally involved in Chase's story, I need led breaks while reading it. When I started crying at 4% in this one I thought it was going to be another tough one. Thankfully it wasn't as hard as Chase. It was a little easier on the heart, it still had pain and angst, I have come to learn that it isn't an Amy Lane book if it doesn't have Pain and Angst.
Dex was a lovely character, he was a fixer. But a fixer can never fix themselves.. That's where Kane came in, he may be simple and a bossy too but he could be what Dex needed, if they would both realise.

“We’ll fix it in the morning, sweetheart. You can’t save the world after 1:00 a.m. Not even you.”
