Keeping Promise Rock – 5 Stars (and more if I could)

This was such a hard story to read. It really yanked on my heart strings. There was so much that these two men had to deal with in order to realize they had it all when they had each other. There are so many ups and downs and twists in the story that it kept me reading late into the night.
This was one of my favorite stories by Amy Lane so far. It was quite sweet and didn’t have a lot of angst, which normally I love, but for some reason it really got to me. I loved these men and their trials were so real and common that it was hard to not fall for them and wish them the best outcome they could possibly have.
Racing For The Sun – 4 stars
I actually really adored this story. Amy Lane has become my favorite author. There is just something about the way she writes that sucks me in each and every time.

The military aspect is what drew me to this book even though they are both out for the majority of the book. There is some dark things that happen in the book, but they totally make me hoot for joy when they happened because if I’d been in their places I would’ve done the same things.

However, as much as I loved the story…. Sonny was a bit much for me. He was a bit creepy at times, although I understand that his past made him the way he was it was hard for me. Plus the fact that Ace never once stopped in the beginning to think if the plans he was making were for him, all that mattered is that they were for Sonny.

Chase in Shadows – 5 Stars
I’m not sure how to start this review… This book was… INTENSE.

This book invoked some serious emotions that’s for sure. There was some hot scenes, sure. They are porn stars after all… but the other feelings that came out were hard to handle at times.

This just might be my favorite book of Amy Lane’s I’ve read so far, which is sort of strange to say as it’s not an easy read. Then again, maybe that’s why I liked it so much. It’s different and shows just how cruel and trying the world can be.

Talker – 4 Star
Sadly, this story just felt like it was missing something for me.. Maybe it was the bouncing between past and present that kept me from really relating to the characters, but really I don’t know. It was a good story and I liked the plot, but I just felt like things were a bit rushed.
However, that being said, I would still pick up the second story in this series because I feel like maybe that would help fix that since I’ve never really not connected to characters in an Amy Lane book before.
