A Flophouse Story
One bootstrap act of integrity cost Henry Worrall everything—military career, family, and the secret boyfriend who kept Henry trapped for eleven years. Desperate, Henry shows up on his brother’s doorstep and is offered a place to live and a job as a handyman in a flophouse for young porn stars.
Lance Luna’s past gave him reasons for being in porn, but as he continues his residency at a local hospital, they now feel more like excuses. He’s got the money to move out of the flophouse and live his own life—but who needs privacy when you’re taking care of a bunch of young men who think working penises make them adults?
Lance worries Henry won’t fit in, but Henry’s got a soft spot for lost young men and a way of helping them. Just as Lance and Henry find a rhythm as den mothers, a murder and the ghosts of Henry’s abusive past intrude. Lance knows Henry’s not capable of murder, but is he capable of caring for Lance’s heart?
Oh man. Poor Henry! And also Poor Lance!
This was definitely a story full of angst. These guys have so much going on in their lives to “get over” before they can be in love.
I thought maybe Lance’s eating disorder could have used more attention… but I was glad to see it at least addressed. I thought Henry’s issues were definitely thoroughly resolved and that was probably enough.
The two of these guys didn’t really get to spend quality time alone, and that was maybe my only complaint. Otherwise I loved this just as I love all Amy stories. (Ok most all Amy stories : )
I think you could read this by itself but… it would be pretty confusing in a lot of areas. So – best bet is to read all of Amy’s stories and this will make the most sense!
