Chase in Shadow by Amy Lane


Can Chase let go of the shadows of his past in order to accept the love Tommy offers? Chase in Shadow by Amy Lane, available from Dreamspinner Press.

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.

Stephanie | 7 comments Stayed up until two am reading this. Well worth the lack of sleep. Definitely an intense read. Grabbed me by the throat at the prologue and never let go. I'll post a more complete review later but just have to say this book was excellent.

Andi (AndiReads) | 12 comments I just read Chase in Shadow (everything else gets back burnered when a new Amy Lane is released) and I'm speechless. I want to write a review when I've had some time to process, but suffice it to say I was stunned and impressed. I loved every step of this intense and heartwrenching journey with Chase and Tommy.

Sorry about that! I swear, I have some happy coming out between this one and the next heartbreaker!


Susinok Super Sock Man was a happy! That one was fun, too. I liked the expanded version.

It was nice to see how SSM fit in with Chase too wasn't it? I enjoyed it in the old version and even more with the expanded one. :)
