Blue Days by Mary Calmes. Both are short and steamy and well told by excellent narrators.

I always like Crisden's chops, in fact, I've bought books just because he narrated them.

Fan's of the series know Donnie as troubled character Chase's best friend. I've always wanted to know more about his character and how the relationship with Chase first formed. Childhood friends, Donnie and Chase discover a lot about themselves through their friendship. The difference between the two in high school is, Donnie came out, and Chase stayed in the shadows.
Donnie is young, slightly naive and totally innocent but certain about who he is and who he wants, his sisters best friend Alejandro. It's his infatuation with the slightly older and completely open young man that helps Donnie decide to be honest with his family about his sexuality. His fantasy comes to life while he's house sitting and accidentally falls asleep in Jandro's bed.
Jandro has never slept with anyone. Oh he's screwed just about anyone that would allow him, but to fall asleep next to someone, to want that type of love with someone, well that is not for Jandro. Coming home and finding Donnie passed out, naked in his bed changes things. Jandro has watched Donnie grow from a shy, awkward teenager to the more assured young man that now lies ass up in his bed, stark white sheets pooled around him.
Johnnies is one of my favorite series, it is emotional and dark and angst ridden, so this short story is as contrasting to the world of Johnnies as Donnie and Jandro are to each other. This was a short, steamy story about a young man that knows exactly what he wants and when offered the opportunity to have it, grabs Jandro with both hands. It's passionate, fun and full of content for such a short story. I think Super Sock Man is a nice reprieve, a little sunshine for all us fans that are anxiously awaiting the release of Black John (book 4) on Audio.
Sean Crisden continues to tell the stories of Lane's boys over at Johnnies as narrator. I love the articulate tone of his voice, how he always enunciates every syllable while managing to inflect different tones for each character. If you are looking for something fast, fun and smexy then look no further. This can also be read as a stand alone as it is solely the story of Donnie and Jandro, not a continuation. But I highly recommend the series as a whole.

I came to this story from having read Chase in Shadow and Donnie was such a strong character that when I found out he had his own book I had to read it. I love that there is a marriage of her other series it expands the world and makes it more complete.
Yandro is such a beautifully rendered character and the counter balance to Donnie's pure effervescent personality. Yandro is a lonely figure until he meets Donnie who is his housemates baby brother and when he enters his life his world is filled with color and during the three years they orbit around each other there is an indefinable draw that Yandro denies until he can't.
The coming together is awesome. Such a wonderful addition to my library.
