Story Overview:
Cam is a veteran porn star at Blue Boy Studios. Known as Mr. Nice Guy, he’s the top every newbie bottom wants to be paired with.

But in recent months his beloved hardcore scenes have dried up. Instead, he finds himself stuck with a string of monotonous foreplay scenes. He takes his frustration to his boss, and warped kind of lover, Jon Kellar, but Jon won’t bend. Cam is a commodity and will do as he’s told…in every way.

Cam’s frustration builds, but a chance meeting with a hot BMXer distracts him. Sasha Tate is gorgeous, warm and wonderful; everything Cam has ever wanted. They bond over shared interests and a sizzling mutual attraction. Cam is exhilarated and thrilled, until his chosen profession gets in the way.

Sasha pulls back, and before Cam can fix it, life comes at him from all fronts. A crisis threatens much more than his relationship with Sasha, and as his world implodes he begins to realize that life will never be the same again.


My Review:
This book went places I never expected it to go and I loved that about it. Honestly, I started the book late at night and was about to go to bed. The book was good, but I was tired. But then something happened in the story and I couldn't put it down until I hit "the end". I just never expected that twist, but it made this book so good. I love that Garrett Leigh went there with the story. 

Cam is a guy struggling. He's been doing porn for a while as a top. Last year his mom left his dad and the entire family and it threw Cam for a loop. He began to unravel a bit although no one ever really realized it...even him. He just knows that he feels unsettled and that nothing is right anymore. And he's right...it's not. He's trying to fix his life with meaningless sex simply to connect. Something that's just leaving him feeling more hollow and empty at every turn.

Then he meets Sasha and feels a connection, but Sasha is enigmatic. One moment, he acts like he's just as into Cam, but then he will turn around and do a total 180 in the next moment. The mixed signals he's sending is certainly not helping Cam's frame of mind, but it all made so much more sense when everything was revealed and thankfully, I was completely WRONG in what I thought was going on with him. whew! I would NOT have liked it if the story had gone there...LOL. 

Cam's going through a transition in this book, but so is the Blue Boy Studios...THANK YOU, Garrett Leigh. I love what happened with the studio in this book and think it's going to set up for so much better books to come. I can't wait to see what you do with the story lines to come. And with that segue, I should probably mention Levi and Sonny, the mc's from book #1 of this series. They were in this one too...quite a bit, in fact. But things aren't all good there...which is good for the realism of the series, but I will admit, I'm worried about them and where their characters are going. :(

But regardless, I can't wait for more installments from this series. It's definitely a good one.
