Boys of Porn: Jack of Hearts stole my heart!

                                      Jack Of Hearts by A.M. Snead
         In a taboo industry that thrives on raw, emotionless sex, Gideon Dodd is a visionary who views gay sex as a thing of beauty and something to be celebrated rather than exploited. Gideon’s boys are the best in the business, not merely for their exquisite talents but for the bonds they share with one another as their mutual love for each other thrives on and off the camera. But as within all families, tension – and even jealousies – arise and threaten their ‘harmony’ at both home and work.

        Jack Heart – 21, cute and with just enough “cockiness” to be a natural in front of the camera – has a passion for sex, but not for love. Believing that the porn industry poses no threat to his heart, Jack is surprised to discover a new home and a close-knit family among Gideon Dodd’s boys. With Parents who disapprove of his “lifestyle”, and the one person he was closest to now gone, Jack is drawn into the family atmosphere that Gideon has created. Yet when co-star Garrett North begins to test his resistance to falling in love, Jack’s heart suddenly becomes the prize to win. But is Garrett playing for keeps…or is Jack simply another conquest for popular porn star, Garrett North?


Wow..just wow! I swear I think this author is either a gay man or is channeling one HAHA. I know most readers will see this title and think...eh I don't know if I want to read about porn stars. I encourage you to think again! I admit I passed this author by at first when browsing, because I didn't want to read about strippers. Then my long distance twin told me to check it out. Phoenix Club series blew me away. This author manages to capture something that would otherwise be totally smutty and make it romantic. But don't get me wrong...ITS HOT! Smoking hot! She brings you into this sexy environment and makes you fall in love with the people behind the beauty.

     Let it be known, I'm not a huge "mystery" or "suspense" fan lol. I am more of a instant gratification kind of guy (most are lol). But let me also admit that this author manages to throw just enough plot twists and "Oh my god I KNEW IT!" into her books to be fun without dragging it out. I love that!

     I don't do spoilers in reviews...but do want to talk about this book a smidgen. This author manages to capture the broken picture of these beautiful guys and frame it in a way that you fall in love with them. Jack, our main character, is one of these flawed angels. He's been through something that most of us could probably not even imagine. It makes him want to close himself off. Make things that are personal be impersonal. But its hard to tell the heart to stop beating. It's got a mind of its own :).
     
     The characters in this story are each unique and thought out. I had no problem picturing them each in all their glory (my poor blood pressure!) lol. You have all the elements of a sexy fun read here and a beautiful beginning to a potentially epic love story! YAY!
