Vern Roberts couldn't wait to turn 18 and get the hell out of Dogpatch, California. But city living is expensive, and he's damned desperate when Dex, from Johnnies, spots him bussing tables.
As "Bobby", he's a natural at gay porn. Soon, he's surrounded by hot guys and sex for the taking, but it's not just his girlfriend back in Dogpatch - or her blackmailing brother - that keeps him from taking it, it's the sweet guy who held the lights for his first solo scene and who showed him decency, kindness, and a smile.
Reg Williams likes to think he's too stupid to realize what a shitty hand life dealt him, but Bobby knows better. What Reg lacks in family, opportunity, education, and money, he makes up for in heart. One fumbling step at a time, they connect, not just in their hearts, but in their bodies, where sex that's not on camera, casual, or meaningless, becomes the most important thing in the world.
But Reg is hampered by an inescapable family burden, and he and Bobby will never fly unless he can find a way to manage it. Can he break the painful link to his unrealized childhood and grow into the love Bobby wants to give?
Amy Lane has two kids who are mostly grown, two kids who aren’t, three cats, and two Chi-who-whats at large. She lives in a crumbling crapmansion with most of the children and a bemused spouse. She also has too damned much yarn, a penchant for action adventure movies, and a need to know that somewhere in all the pain is a story of Wuv, Twu Wuv, which she continues to believe in to this day! She writes fantasy, urban fantasy, and gay romance—and if you accidentally make eye contact, she’ll bore you to tears with why those three genres go together. She’ll also tell you that sacrifices, large and small, are worth the urge to write.
