Chase Summers: Golden boy. Beautiful girlfriend, good friends, and a promising future.

Nobody knows the real Chase.

Chase Summers has a razor blade to his wrist and the smell of his lover’s goodbye clinging to his skin. He has a door in his heart so frightening he’d rather die than open it, and the lies he’s used to block it shut are thinning with every forbidden touch. Chase has spent his entire life unraveling, and his decision to set his sexuality free in secret has only torn his mind apart faster.

Chase has one chance for true love and salvation. He may have met Tommy Halloran in the world of gay-for-pay—where the number of lovers doesn’t matter as long as the come-shot’s good—but if he wants the healing that Tommy’s love has to offer, he’ll need the courage to leave the shadows for the sunlight. That may be too much to ask from a man who’s spent his entire life hiding his true self. Chase knows all too well that the only things thriving in a heart’s darkness are the bitter personal demons that love to watch us bleed.

I’m not sure how to start this review… This book was… INTENSE.
This book invoked some serious emotions that’s for sure. There was some hot scenes, sure. They are porn stars after all… but the other feelings that came out were hard to handle at times.
This just might be my favorite book of Amy Lane’s I’ve read so far, which is sort of strange to say as it’s not an easy read. Then again, maybe that’s why I liked it so much. It’s different and shows just how cruel and trying the world can be.
This was my first book narrated by Sean Crisden. I have to say I was pretty impressed. He really brought the men to life and even though there was a number of male characters, each one sounded different.
