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.

I love the way Amy Lane makes her characters so real and loveable even when they obviously have flaws. But she always manages to teach us that we all need love and acceptance.
I have listened to this book several times and am moved each time!

Staff Sergeant Jasper "Ace" Atchison takes one look at Private Sonny Daye and knows that every word on paper about him is pure, unadulterated bullshit. But Sonny is desperate, and although Ace isn't going to take him up on his offer of "anything", that doesn't mean he isn't tempted. Instead, Ace takes Sonny under his wing, protecting him when they're in the service and making plans with him when they get out.

Would you listen to Racing for the Sun again? Why?

I love Amy Lane and she never disappoints me when I buy one of her books or audio books, and this one is NO EXCEPTION. In fact, I think this one has more pathos that any one I have read or listened to recently.

She manages to take ALMOST completely broken individuals and shows that through the power of LOVE lives can be changed. This story illustrates that perfectly. It also shows the extreme and dramatic steps one person will go to in order to keep those they love safe from harm.

Nick J. Russo has done a marvelous job of narration as well. I have heard quite a few of his narrations and he always does great. Together Amy and Nick make a good pair to get a story across and straight to your heart.

BE CAREFUL, do no listen to this if you do not want some tears slipping down your face during the performance.

Great job Amy and Nick! Can't wait until the next one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Racing for the Sun?

Those tender moments when Ace kept reassuring Sonny that he would keep him forever and love him as long as he lived.

Which character – as performed by Nick J. Russo – was your favorite?

Nick did a great job on all of the characters, but I could feel the strong masculine strength as well as the tender vulnerability of Ace through his intonations.

If you could rename Racing for the Sun, what would you call it?

I think it is a perfect name.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait until this duo work together again and I get to enjoy the performance.
