Damn you, Amy Lane. I had things to do today, plans, obligations. I had my own writing too, and I left my guys waiting in the middle of a freaking sex scene to finish this book and watch you bring Chase and Tommy safely home.

Chase is a very young man who is trying to be a good person. He tries so hard to do the right thing, while locking his fears and pain and demons away in his head behind a red door. He's gay and he can't admit it, can't even think about it. Then a comment from a friend suggests a way out. Straight guys do gay porn, right? It gives Chase added income, but more importantly it lets him touch and be touched, by men whose bodies turn him on far more than the girlfriend he lives with and loves like a sister. But doing gay porn puts a strain on that red door in his head. As he gets to know the men, and begins to fall in real love with Tommy, he moves deeper and deeper into deception. Something has to give. His closet, his heart, his mind, his life... something.

This is another of Amy Lane's intense stories, about a man with a painful past who will find his way into your heart and break it, little by little. But thank God she writes romance, and so at the end of the deception and discovery, the worry and the pain, there is love. Highly recommended.

If you like Amy Lane, especially her more angsty books, you won't regret it. I'm working to keep from turning around and starting it over (like I did with The Locker Room, twice :)

Tracy I do like her, and her angsty books... Sometimes you just need a good cathartic cry, and she's good for that!

Ami I have to admit that I am a minority as in Amy Lane's stories have been hits and misses, and not all of those her highly rated stories work for me. But you made me feel intrigued and will keep this in consideration.

Will Parkinson Whoa there. Just a minute! In the middle of a sex scene? That's just so wrong. Why? I'm waiting on a new book from you! Stop reading, keep writing. :)
