Chase in Shadow (Johnnies #1) by Amy Lane

Chase in Shadow (Johnnies, #1)Chase in Shadow by Amy Lane
My rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Chase Summers: Golden boy. Beautiful girlfriend, good friends, and a promising future. 

Nobody knows the real Chase.

Chase Summers has a razor blade to his wrist and the smell of his lover’s goodbye clinging to his skin. He has a door in his heart so frightening he’d rather die than open it, and the lies he’s used to block it shut are thinning with every forbidden touch. Chase has spent his entire life unraveling, and his decision to set his sexuality free in secret has only torn his mind apart faster. 

Chase has one chance for true love and salvation. He may have met Tommy Halloran in the world of gay-for-pay—where the number of lovers doesn’t matter as long as the come-shot’s good—but if he wants the healing that Tommy’s love has to offer, he’ll need the courage to leave the shadows for the sunlight. That may be too much to ask from a man who’s spent his entire life hiding his true self. Chase knows all too well that the only things thriving in a heart’s darkness are the bitter personal demons that love to watch us bleed.

“God. No wonder it was so easy. He’s been bleeding since he was a baby. He just never told anyone. How do you even know it hurts after all that time?” Because you loved me, and I knew what it meant to feel.”


Wow, this book was amazing. Can i give it 6 stars? I have never felt so much pain when reading a book. I was totally invested in these characters lives. Tommy and Chase suffered in this book, and I suffered right along side them.
I started this book a while ago, but wasn't in the right frame of mind to get through it. I only managed a few pages. I picked it up again yesterday and thought 'I will finish it this time'. I had to put it down a few times during the last two days, because it just hurt to keep reading, I needed the break. My soul needed the break. But I loved it, so much. The breaks helped me saviour it too.

Christmas Kitsch by Amy Lane

Christmas KitschChristmas Kitsch by Amy Lane
My rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Sometimes the best thing you can get for Christmas is knowing what you really want.

Rusty Baker is a blond, rich, entitled football player in a high school full of them—just the type of oblivious jock all the bullied kids hate. And he might have stayed that way, except he develops a friendship with out-and-proud Oliver Campbell from the wrong side of the tracks. Rusty thinks the friendship is just pity—Oliver is very bright, and Rusty is very not—but then Oliver kisses him goodbye when Rusty leaves for college, and Rusty is forced to rethink everything he knows about himself.

But even Rusty’s newfound awareness can’t help him survive a semester at Berkeley. He returns home for Thanksgiving break clinging to the one thing he knows to be true: Oliver Campbell is the best thing that’s ever happened to him.

Rusty’s parents disagree, and Rusty finds himself homeless for the holidays. Oliver may not have much money, but he’s got something Rusty has never known: true family. With their help and Oliver’s love, Rusty comes to realize that he may have failed college, but he’ll pass real life with flying rainbow colors.

~ Review ~

I say it every time I finish an Amy Lane book, she writes the most adorable men that tug at your heart strings.. God I love her men.
This story was full of pain and love, like all Ms Lane books, the pain may hurt you as you read, but the love fixes you right back up.

Behind the Curtain by Amy Lane

Behind the CurtainBehind the Curtain by Amy Lane
My rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Dawson Barnes recognizes his world is very small and very charmed. Running his community college theater like a petty god, he and his best friend, Benji know they'll succeed as stage techs after graduation. His father adores him, Benji would die for him, and Dawson never doubted the safety net of his family, even when life hit him below the belt.

But nothing prepared him for falling on Jared Emory's head.

Aloof dance superstar Jared is a sweet, vulnerable man and Dawson's life suits him like a fitted ballet slipper. They forge a long-distance romance from their love of the theater and the magic of Denny's. At first it's perfect: Dawson gets periodic visits and nookie from a gorgeous man who “gets” him—and Jared gets respite from the ultra-competitive world of dancing that almost consumed him.
That is until Jared shows up sick and desperate and Dawson finally sees the distance between them concealed painful things Jared kept inside. If he doesn’t grow up—and fast—his "superstar" might not survive his own weaknesses. That would be a shame, because the real, fragile Jared that Dawson sees behind the curtain is the person he can see spending his life with.

“When I sleep with someone, I need it to mean something. I need to know someone would look me in the eye and be there the next day, and the next week, and the next month. I’m not stupid—I know it doesn’t always mean forever, but you have to at least think it could be forever. There’s a possibility of forever before you even touch, or you’re just touching to hurt yourself. I can’t be just a quick fuck in the bathroom.” 
~ Review~

Amy Lane books never disappoint. Her characters are so well written, so full, they feel like real people.. Hell they are real people. Dawson was hilarious and adorable. Jared made your heartbreak for him. Together they are perfect. This was another fabulous story that had me so engrossed, I couldn't put it down until I reached the end.

Genre: NA Contemporary Romance

Release date: January 28, 2014

Hosted by: Forever Me Romance

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." - Marianne Williamson

We live in a world of darkness and shadows,
where monsters hide and aim to ruin.
And they did.
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.
But now we're back.
And we're fighting.
Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.

More will be added as they go live.

 Author of Mature YA / New Adult contemporary novels, MORE THAN THIS, MORE THAN HER, and a soon to be released sequel, MORE THAN HIM. I enjoy reading and writing books that make people laugh, cry and swoon for dreamy book boyfriends. When not doing either of those, I can be found looking after my two little boys, and trying to avoid house work at all costs.

Cover Reveal: Time Will Tell (Maybe #3) by Chantal Fernando

Title: Time Will Tell (Maybe #3)

Author: Chantal Fernando

Release Date: September 2014

Hosted by: Forever Me Romance

Be spontaneous, they say.

That's how I ended up on the back of a stranger's bike.

A sexy, tall, tattooed stranger, but a stranger nonetheless.

How was I to know that a chance meeting with this man, Xander Kane, was going to change my life?
