    1. 3.5 stars Drug addictions, pornography, family drama, abandonment issues yup, you guessed it It s the latest installment in Amy Lane s Johnnies series I will always have a soft spot for this series Dex in Blue was one of my first M Ms, and so these books are like my M M homecoming They are ANGSTY and weighty but I like being put through the ringer sometimes I think fans of the other Johnnies books will really love this one It rectifies some of the mistakes that Ethan in Gold made, IMO I liked th [...]

    2. This is the fourth book in a favorite series for me I do recommend reading in order book 1, Chase in Shadow, is a very favorite read for me John ended the previous somewhat overlapping time frame three books as a bad guy, a man who sold out his best friend to a drug dealing ex in order to pay for his addiction But in this book, John s pain and his backstory are there to move him slowly from bad guy to it s complicated to a sympathetic figure, a man who deserves another chance There is a lot of p [...]

    3. Great final chapter of wonderful seriesBLACK JOHNI like my John better than one on the cover His story was amazing Review to comehere

    4. I m kinda, sorta addicted to Amy Lane s books Yes, there I said it.I d read and loved the first three books of the Johnnies series and was really excited to see that the fourth book was coming out, so I jumped on this advanced copy like a cat on a rat.Or something like that The first three books were full of all types of action and adventure and, for the most part, there was never a dull moment Conflict, tons of sexy adventures and angst galore, hot and steaming off the grill.So as I began readi [...]

    5. I d been looking forward to John s story ever since his meltdown in Dex in Blue It was every bit the angst fest with a happy ending that makes the Johnnies books one of my favourite series Just out of rehab, John has to return to his old hometown to deal with the death of his first love, Tory Tory and John had grown up together, made porn together and were even kicked out of their homes together Unable to handle his family s rejection, Tory turned to drugs and sex His addiction eventually forced [...]

    6. I can t really give a full review of this book without spoilers, so you know, not gonna do that but i will say i recommend for fans of Amy s Johnnies series, those who enjoyed her serial last year, etc Amy has a unique, lyrical voice so different from many in our genre, and if you are, like me, a fan of her voice and her other work, you will likely enjoy this as much as I did.I don t recommend reading this as a standalone i feel it works best knowing the backgrounds of the supporting cast, most [...]

    7. I m having a hard time reviewing this because the drug problem where I live is pretty serious No, I m not kidding.Yes, Maine is beautiful.We still have drugs.Lots of drugs.I don t think I know anyone who hasn t been involved with or affected by someone with a serious drug problem My younger sister has a friend They have been friends since they were kids Her friend lost her sister in her early 20 s to a drug overdose I babysat for both girls when they were little It was awful.So I appreciated the [...]

    8. 3.5 starsWhile this book definitely redeemed John and had me forgiving him for his behavior in Dex in Blue, I found myself struggling with the relationship part of the story I liked both John and Galen, and understood the fast friendship born out of shared circumstances, but it took me a long time to get invested in them as a couple I did want them together and happy by the end of the story, and I was completely on board with the way things played out, I just felt like I was missing something.I [...]

    9. Black John is about forgiveness and atonement Forgiving yourself for being far less than you wanted to be , for making the most monumental mistakes , and forgiving yourself and others for not being stronger It s also about atoning for the wrongs committed against those you love and who love you It s about finally figuring out that you deserve love.John Carey has been running Johnnies for well over a decade He built the business originally with his boyfriend Tory, but Tory was broken and couldn t [...]

    10. Okay, I want to like to this But unfortunately, I can t It was not easy for me to understand John or Galen And I was not easily convinced in their romance It took me than halfway through the story for me to like them The story, oh gosh, a lot of it was John s memory of Tory, his first love Which I ended up not really caring of The timeline This was set at the same time setting as the previous books, which irritated me Do four people in the same circle find love all at the same time And I haven [...]

    11. Well Amy Lane you just broke me with this one John has been there in all the other stories, founder of Johnnies and last seen heading into rehab after making one of his most stupid decisions when he agreed to the demands of Dex s ex Scott to schedule a scene with the pair of them, knowing Dex was now in love with Kane and not doing porn any , because he owed Scott a massive amount for supplying him with coke.As a character there in the background, we ve not really seen much of what happened to J [...]

    12. 4.5 starsFirst of all, if addiction and situations related to it are a trigger for you, i think you d better not read this.This is the story of John, owner of Johnnies drug addict douchebag , and Galen ,drug addict as well.I won t say how they met because i don t want to spoil things.There wasn t much steam and sex in this book and that was ok with me.The two MCs are two people damaged who manage to save each other and become better men You you d spent your whole life being second, thinking that [...]

    13. 4.5 StarsEvery time I start a new Amy Lane book, I prepare myself to have my heart ripped out, because nobody writes angst like Amy does I swear I can still FEEL her books a year later Black John is book 4 in the Johnnies series, and while all the books are wonderful and you shouldn t miss out on them, this could definitely be read as a standalone I am happy to say this wasn t quite as dark as the previous books I mean there was definitely plenty of angst, but I m proud to say I only managed to [...]

    14. Although Dex in Blue is still my all time favorite, this is a nice addition to the Johnnies series John is the slightly older 35 guy who runs Johnnies, so he s not a sex object the way the younger guys porn stars are But that s no reason he can t be sexy He finds a lover who reminds him that he is attractive and there are many things to love about him I liked this story line, him building himself back up after what amounts to a life long bad borderline emotional abusive relationship, although it [...]

    15. I have decided to not be stingy with my five star rating today I love Johnny and Galen The banter between them was just YES YES Book 1 Still not in right mindset to read it Book 2 The BestBook 3 sigh Book4 Awesomesauce read of 2015 and has a place next to book 2 for different reasons Book 5 Bobby and You ll found out

    16. It s it s the difference between painting rain and standing in it, I guess When you paint it, you re breaking it down to color, composition, emotional impact But when you re standing in it, it s all about Dancing in the rain, Classic Amy Lane and another excellent read.

    17. This was not as angsty or as smexy as the previous books in the series but I really enjoyed John s story I was a little disappointed in the ending I wanted an epilogue and then I got it so I m good.lovebytesreviews 2015 02 0

    18. How can an author take a guy who was an addict and a total as and transform him into a sympathetic character that deserves his own book Seems impossible, but Amy Lane did just that My favorite line in the book Okay, so I get it high concept, simple dick It s gonna be great This is the story of John, the inspiration for The Johnnies He has a drug problem that is about to severly damage his business, his employees and himself Dex Oh I love him steps in and takes John to rehab Just as he is leaving [...]

    19. Who loves a day off to read an Amy Lane book I do I do I wasnt shocked John could overcome and be than the dickhead in Dex in Blue I am currently catching on the to the term feels This one didn t have the major feels that I have associated with Mrs Lane I didn t feel John and Galen s romance as much as I think I could have It was pretty quick too quick they way they fell into one another Especially with the reason John was there, where John had just been and the issues that Galen was going thro [...]

    20. I enjoyed this story but I m at a loss for what to say in a review Thankfully I m not reviewing this one for a blog I had a few areas of confusion where I felt there was a discrepancy in the story that bothered me Most were minor but I think if I was beta reading I surely would have been hitting the comment button Then I also had a few issues related to two recovering addicts helping each other I ve worked in the recovery field and was sorry to see there wasn t mention of a support group for any [...]

    21. I love this series This wasn t my favorite of the series but I still enjoyed the book Galen and John were good together It was a little unbelievable with the quickness of their bonding but I could easily let that go Overall, a good story but it seemed to be missing something but I m not sure what Maybe it was not as heavy and downright sad as the other ones.

    22. Im sorry its probably just me I loved the other 3 in the series this one just didn t do it for me.

    23. While the players and the setting changes, the game remains the same Gomez Pugh picks up the narration for the final installment of the Johnnies series, and does it beautifully Pugh consistently delivers a dynamic and impressive performance While the other three books in the series focused on the Johnnies set and life in and around Sacramento, Black John focuses on the characters, on Johnnies owner, John Carey, in particular, and is set mainly in Florida.John has just completed a stint in rehab [...]

    24. Amy Lane, sometimes you manage to enthrall me Now is one of those times I knew in the beginning that I liked Galen and not so much John, weird huh But that John and I could be friends, well, I learned to really like both of these former addicts a lot Stop The Presses Beautiful love story of hope Getting over the rainbow and once you are there, figuring out how you can live happily ever after Yeah, it really is possible to stay clean, to stay in love, to stay happy, healthy and whole Thank you Am [...]

    25. My Review The Johnnies series has been one of my favorites in the m m fiction world, but I wasn t sure about this one John is the owner of the porn company and he s done some pretty awful things, especially to Dex But like all the guys in this series, John has some serious baggage in his background which makes him pretty broken This book centers around John and his childhood friend Tory They were inseparable since they were 8 years old They discovered their sexuality together and John s first po [...]

    26. This story was hard It deals with some darkly emotional content, and those who are triggered by suicide and drug abuse should steer clear Johnny is fresh from rehab and gets the heartbreaking news that an old lover has died He flies from rehab to his old stomping ground, where his career as a pornographer started with his first love, to open very deep, very old wounds Enter drug addicted, accident survivor, Corporate Lawyer, Galen Exactly what Johnny doesn t need as he packs up his old lover s e [...]
