Mike continues to work in films. It is eye-opening to learn the behind-the-scenes details. The gay for pay angle was intriguing and shows that sex can be faked but not sexuality. Mike doesn't tell Tommy what he does because he's lost boyfriends before. It takes several kicks in the ass from his friends to wake up and realize it's his own actions that cause the problem. That's the part that bugged me. It shouldn't be that hard not to have figured it out before. Tommy reacts predictably when he finds out.
The way Mike tries to deal with it is pretty stupid and Tommy, again, reacts as expected. He actually handles it pretty maturely. Mike, twenty-something years older, has a less mature outlook in some ways. However, so much of this book was very predictable. This wasn't plot-driven, by any means. The characters were interesting, the porn backstory unique but other than that it was just another virgin, coming out and falls in love, with angsty breakup scene.
What threw me for a loop here is how truly damaged Mike is, even though he seems to be happily floating through his life as a bartender and legendary gay performer--especially when it comes to making up his mind about Tommy, that sweet natured south Georgia farmer college boy who rings all his bells and toots all his whistles. Double-loop is how determined to get who he wants is the almost brazenly out of the closet kid Tommy--and a kid he is in many respects, which is what makes him so endearing.
The slow-building and even slower-concluded romance between a middle aged hunk and a college hunk is beautifully handled by Ms. Wells who brings all the confidence and doubts of both Mike and Tommy together along with a group of supporters and enemies in both Atlanta and south Georgia in a neatly woven package. This one's a keeper!
Tommy is a virgin and Mike works in porn. Unlikely pair? Yup! Which makes the book all the better as you see them trying to figure out how this relationship will work. Or will it?
I am really hoping that this is the start of a series cuz damn! That would be great!! Thank you for the amazing ride! I loved every minute of it!!!
I have to say that Dirk on the cover? Whoa! Stunning!!
