Shane Wallace has made a decent life for himself in Last Chance. He built his own home on his mom’s property to take care of her, owns an automotive repair shop, and when he wants to get laid, Portland isn’t too far away. Not too shabby for the boy who spent his childhood getting bullied and feeling alone. Shane’s content to leave his past behind him…until one of his childhood tormentors comes back to town.

Maxwell Sullivan never planned to step foot in Last Chance again. Here, he was Maxwell, a teen who suffered in silence while everyone thought he had the perfect life. Now, he’s “Van,” the erotic artist and photographer. He’s only here to help his mom tie up some loose ends after his father’s death and to apologize to Shane. After that, he’s heading back to LA for good.

Shane never thought he’d have anything in common with Maxwell, but there’s a depth to Van that surprises him. Van knows what it feels like to be alone. He sees Shane in ways no one else does. There’s a shared connection neither can deny. Somehow, despite their rocky history, they get each other.

It’s not long before the two are so drawn to each other that they tumble into bed—sometimes with Van’s camera involved. Their chemistry in and out of the bedroom is undeniable. Except nothing is ever black and white. Shane can’t leave his mom and Van’s life is in LA. With two different lives pulling them in opposite directions, their picture-perfect ending might not be in the cards.


Depth of Field has the distinct honor of being the smuttiest, dirty-talking-est, sexiest, hottest book Ms. Hart has written to date. This one is a panty-soaker folks!

Shane Wallace never left his small hometown for the excitement of school or travel. His mother is ill and needs special attention. Attention Shane feels only he can provide.

Maxwell “Van” Sullivan couldn’t blow out-of-town fast enough after high school graduation. He moved to sunny California and immersed himself in the gay culture and artist community. He is happy and fulfilled and hates the thought of going home again after his father dies.

Depth of Field starts as a kind of enemies-to-lovers story because of bullying that happened to Shane by Van and his friends when they were young. But that is quickly put behind them as they start that fucking-hot fucking I mentioned above.

“Open your mouth,” Shane told him and Van did. He grabbed the base of his cock before tracing Van’s lips. He felt the pre-come there, painting him like lipstick, before he pushed his dick inside. “Could we take a photograph like this?” Shane asked. “Set it up so I could look back on it and see how hot my prick looks between your lips?”

Did I mention that there is a camera involved? And wall sex? And face fucking? I guess I’ll just mention them again since they are all very important aspects to the story.

Between all the hot sex, there is a sweet romance and a few bumps in the road on they way to happily ever after, but they eventually make it and the ending was fantastic.

And can we talk about that cover? fans self Click here to get up close and personal with all its glory.

This one goes straight to my top 10 of 2017 list. Highly, highly recommended.

Van is a homoerotic artist and photographer. It couldn’t resist putting up a gallery of his fictional work.
