Introducing Bobby Green

Bobby Green

by Amy Lane

Vern Roberts couldn’t wait to turn eighteen and get the hell out of Dogpatch, California. But city living is expensive, and he’s damned desperate when Dex from Johnnies spots him bussing tables.

As “Bobby,” he’s a natural at gay porn. Soon he’s surrounded by hot guys and sex for the taking, but it’s not just his girlfriend back in Dogpatch—or her blackmailing brother—that keeps him from taking it. It’s the sweet guy who held the lights for his first solo scene, who showed him decency, kindness, and a smile.

Reg Williams likes to think he’s too stupid to realize what a shitty hand life dealt him, but Bobby knows better. What Reg lacks in family, opportunity, education, and money, he makes up for in heart. One fumbling step at a time, they connect, not just in their hearts but in their bodies, where sex that’s not on camera, casual, or meaningless, becomes the most important thing in the world.

But Reg is hampered by an inescapable family burden, and he and Bobby will never fly unless he can find a way to manage it. Can he break the painful link to his unrealized childhood and grow into the love Bobby wants to give?


Some books cut super close to the bone, and this is one of them.  Reg and Bobby aren’t superheroes. (Say, Jackson Rivers or Deacon Winters.)  They’re not stock brokers (like Jace and Quent or Zack.)  They have no education and no prospects, and they’re unaware of the consequences the actions take today might have on ten years from now.
Reg and Bobby are kids I went to school with. They’re kids I taught. They’re kids I see graduate with my own kids–and not succeed. 
They have bigger burdens than anybody suspects, and bigger hearts than people would give them credit for. They have simple hearts and decency and the capable of being their best selves. 
They make mistakes, big and small. They lose their temper, and struggle with what a relationship should be and what they should do to make that work. They come to their conclusions through trial and error, and sometimes their errors are heartbreaking.
I hope you guys like this book--it’s book five of the Johnnies series, and I loved writing it so much there’s going to be a six and a seven.
Mostly I hope you love Bobby and Reg–they reminded me of a lot I know is good about people. I hope they do the same for you.
