David’s life came to a grinding halt when his best friend was killed in a car crash. When his money for college ran out he became a porn star, and also helping manage a new MM porn movie business. His life becomes complicated with lovers, actors, friends, men who refuse to accept they’re gay, and men whose lives are affected by their relationships.
Kane works with David and is thrown out of his home, so moves in with David, now known as Dex.  With so many people and so many complications can they sort their lives out?

Amy Lane is a prolific full-time author and one of the genres she writes regularly is MM. This story is a long, big, full novel with many characters all with their strengths, weaknesses and tangled relationships. These characters are fully developed and fascinating people with a lot of story to tell. Using the setting of a porn movie company gives Ms. Lane the opportunity to raise the sexual tension high and build an expectation of more erotic scenes. These expectations are fulfilled. There is a huge cast of characters, many of them well described and their lives are inextricably intertangled causing tension and drama. At times the story is particularly poignant but fulfilling. The main characters are surrounded by many other characters, but still remain central to the story.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
