Dex in Blue | [Amy Lane]

Dex in Blue

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "More of Johnnies boys falling in love."

    This story is the 2nd story Amy wrote about the boys from Johnnies. Dex's story starts long before you meet him in Chase in Shadow, giving us his back ground, but it quickly becomes concurrent to Chase and Tommy's timeline. While the title states Dex, the story is about both Dex and Kane falling in love and making it work. You will love Kane's innocence and Dex's strength. Families are what we make them - and Amy makes them amazing!

    "Amy Lane is brilliant as usual."

    Loved this book. Amy Lane at her best - I think this will be a great series of books. A particularly sexy instalment. Can't wait for the next one.

    Story
    "Read it already, but bought the audio,"
    Would you listen to Dex in Blue again? Why?

    Yes, read the book then bought the audio. This is a tie between the first and the second in the series. I love Chase in Dark and I love this one. Sean Crisden is one of my favorite narrators and he does not disappoint in this one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ?? I love them all, Dex (David), and Kane (Carlos). I love this relationship, and I love Dex in his role in Johnnies. When he slept with Tommy in the first book, I had a problem with loving him, but quickly got over it.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Many by this narrator. Great as always. He can turn a bad book into a good listen just due to his narration.


    Who was the most memorable character of Dex in Blue and why?

    Dex and Kane, I do love Ethan and cannot wait until his comes out.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the money, now I own the book and audio, I will listen again and again.

    Story
    "Two of the most wholesome gay porn stars ever"
    Where does Dex in Blue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This material works really well as an audio-book. I will certainly listen to it again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kane won my heart. Kane has convinced himself that he's dumb and only has his gym perfect body to offer. But Kane really is wise and has an intuitive side to his nature that's a perfect foil for Dex's care-taking ways. Together they're perfect.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At ten and a half hours this is NOT a one sitting book but it was certainly enjoyable in larger than usual segments.


    Any additional comments?

    David Worral's first love Dex died tragically in a collision with a deer in Montana shortly after David and Dex took their first timid steps out of the closet together. In his grief, the true nature of which he cannot admit to his family and perhaps even to himself, David spends the next 9 years in a self imposed exile to California where he has stumbled into gay-for-pay porn using Dex as his screen name. He's even become the guy Friday of the office and the one that everyone else depends on.

    Now in his late twenties, Dex meets big vulnerable Kane, a young Hispanic guy from a working class Mexican family with a manipulative sister who condemns him for his porn work but gladly takes the money that it generates. Never a great student, Kane has convinced himself that he's dumb and only has his gym perfect body to offer. But Kane really is wise and has an intuitive side to his nature that's a perfect foil for Dex's care-taking ways. Together the two are a perfect match.

    This installment is much lighter in tone than Chase in Shadow The characters are captivating. Plus, it's fun to revisit (even peripherally) the characters from the earlier book.

    Amy Lane has succeeded in creating possibly the most wholesome porn stars ever, and it's a pleasure to spend time with them.

    Sean Crisden narrates the audio-book and does a great job differentiating the large cast of male voices, the stolidity of Dex and the childlike sweetness and vulnerability of Kane shine though. Even the women's voices are convincing without being grating as is so often the case.

    By all means check this one out. It's already been added to favorite re-listening shelf.

    Story
    "A well-told, heart-warming story from the get-go"

    The story is about a young gay man who comes to understand who is he and what it will take to get out of life what he wants and deserves. It is not a heavy or deep story, but accurate and meaningful in terms of the feelings and growth involved. You will come to love both the main characters as well as the background ones, who each have their own book in the series.

    My only criticism is the reader. His voice seems more mature than the characters' ages are supposed to be. At times he adopts a childish lilt/tone to account for that or differentiate between different character's voices. Also, one of the main characters has an LA Mexican way of talking that the narrator can't quite pull off (mainly to the aforementioned childish lilt, which makes the character sound like a whiny child). I did, however, get used to his voice and found that it didn't detract so much as it left me just wishing it were different/better.

    This is the first book in this series that I listened to. I don't know if it's the first in the series or not, but it was not a problem coming on board with this one. For those who wish to know, there are explicitly written sex scenes and I found them well-done, grounded in the story-characters (not gratuitous) and exciting.
