"I'm not smart. But I know special. It's special. Anything I gotta do to sleep next to you. That's what I'm gonna do."

What a wonderful story! I really loved the first book in this series, and this one was just as freaking good and beautiful as the first.

The book starts off in the past. I will admit, the beginning confused me because the character we know as Dex, isn't his real name, nope, it's David. But he did know a Dex once, so when the book began, it began with David and Dex's story. It was brief but we get the gist of their relationship. They were young and best friends living in Montana, who were also in love with each other. After a tragic even causes Dex's death, David is devastated. He later on becomes a porn star and ends up using Dex's name. I've got to say, Amy Lane has some mad skills. I can't believe she had be crying over a character I barely knew, but I did. It was just heartbreaking.

'When he held onto Dex, it was all perfect--best part of his day perfect, best part of his life perfect. Perfect'

Almost a decade has passed since David (who I will be calling Dex from now on) lost his first love. Now, Dex is still working at Johnnies, a gay for pay porn site, but he is now doing more off camera. He helps edit the videos and helps his boss John run the business. Suddenly there is this young straight man named Carlos, who is interested in being a porn star named Kane at Johnnies. Dex welcomes him into the fold and from there on they form a friendship. When Kane is forced out of his home so his sister and niece have a place to stay, Dex helps him out and lets him stay at his place. This is when things start to heat up between them. And I am talking super über freaking hot. I had to fan myself more than one occasion.

I absolutely loved the connection between Dex and Kane. It was so stinking adorable how sweet these to were together. Despite their age difference, they fit so perfectly well. Kane may have not been the brightest bulb, but when he knew what he wanted, he went for it. He was protective and loved wholeheartedly. Dex has been trying to portray a happy version of himself. He has never really gotten over the death of his first love and has never been able to find himself. Kane changes that for him, all of sudden he has his own identity and can freely be himself without holding back. They both have their issues but together, they help each other overcome them. They help one another reveal how worthy they are of love, and that was so damn beautiful to see.

"Can we go home? I want to be home with you."

"You are my home," Dex whispered, and Kane kissed the tears away.

Overall, this book may have not been as intense as the first book in this series, but I still loved every bit of this story. I loved Dex and Kane so very much. I loved how much they loved each other. I loved that they had some great supportive friends. There was a bit of drama added that was very enjoyable as well. This book made me cry, made my heart break and melt, and put a goofy smile on my face. I totally loved it. The ending was so sweet and romantic. If you loved the first book, you should definitely check this one out. And if you haven't read this series, than you should go do so now.
