Super Sock Man – Johnnies #0.5
Bookreview / August 23, 2015

Super Sock Man is a story by Amy Lane, originally written for the M-M Romance Group on Goodreads, and now published as a separate story. It could be considered part of the Johnnies series, because at least one of the characters will go on to have his own story in the Johnnies series. But it can also be read as a separate story. Donnie has a major crush on Alejandro, his sisters roommate, but he has never acted on it. He is pretty sure Alejandro will think him too young or never consider dating his roommates brother. So he just crushes from a distance and has to learn to live with unrequited love. But then his sister and Alejandro have to go away for a while and they ask Donnie to house sit their apartment. And of course Donnie says yes, finally able to spend some time closer to the person he is lusting after, or at least near his personal things. As soon as he is alone Donnie enters Alejandro’s room and starts going through his stuff. Of course there is also a lot of masturbating involved. Soon Donnie finds some very pretty knitted socks and decides to put…

Ethan in Gold is part 3 in the Johnnies series by Amy Lane. Once again we learn more about one of the stars at Johnnies and the life they have outside of porn. At a very young age Evan Costa learned that love is never unconditional and that you should learn to make do with what you get instead of what you want. His mother is very controlling and that makes the whole family suffer. Never once is he touched lovingly by anyone and that leaves deep scars. But when Evan becomes Ethan and works as a porn model for Johnnies he gets exactly what he wants. Lots of physical contact and love, or as close as possible to it. For now he is happy with what he gets. Until he meets Jonah Stevens, who works at the local pet store. Jonah has done nothing in his life but help other people and is very shy about his body. He has almost no confidence in himself. He looks at Evan like a man, not as a porn star. Ethan looks at Jonah like a kindred spirit, but not as relationship material. He would never be good enough for Jonah and…
