    One thought on “Beneath the Stain”

    1. Huge " love you forever" endless starsMackey's story MusicHeartbreakHigh AngstFlammableBeneath the Stain is Amy Lane at her best and finest. She has taken a story of four brothers living in a small and narrow minded town and with the angst and desperation of just surviving in the environment they have to grow up in, she gives us Mackey Sanders. Mackey is the force that takes him and his brothers out of Tyson California and gives them a life they never dreamed of.I loved the way the story takes u [...]

    2. This is a book about imperfect people, and about finding redemption wherever it lives for you.For Mackey Sanders, it lives in his music.Mackey is a force of nature: music-spewing dynamite in a small, unstable, and gay package. He and his brothers grew up hardscrabble poor, with clothes from Goodwill, a mother who was away working far too much, and a baby brother they've pitched in to raise when they're just kids themselves. Mackey is a scrapper, who will take on anyone for a good cause or a smal [...]

    3. This book thoroughly wrecked me, and I don't regret a moment. I debated on whether or not I wanted to read it, even though I bought the book a month ago, because I knew it would lay waste to my heart. It did that, but more, I found the journey so worth the pain. There aren't many writers that can write light and fluffy and deep and angsty and everything in between and do it all well. Amy Lane is one who can. I've often seen her referred to as The Queen of Angst, and now I know why. Beneath the S [...]

    4. BR with Isabel and Eva from Monday 8 SeptemberAnother wonderful job from Amy Lane, one of the best books I ever read from her!This story ripped my heart out, Mackey, I love him to pieces. He was extraordinarily beautiful, so brokenand yet extremely kind and unique!I knew that reading Amy Lane's books I was getting my heart broken again and again, and that she did it in a masterpiece fully way, but was so worth it, because this story deserves that we ripped our emotions…what a gripping writer s [...]

    5. I don't know if this is a review. I think it's just me talking. So bear with me.This book and Iwe had unfinished business. I bought the serials one by one when they were coming out and I waited untill the last one was out to start reading (which was stupid but I hear now that the consolidated version doesn't include the bonus chapters. That's a shame because they really add to the story, so I guess it was worth it).So, I read book one and fell in love with the boys. While I was in the middle of [...]

    6. Now that the book has been consolidated, I'm going to give it a go because of the fabulous reviews. (Serials make me crazy.)

    7. What an amaaaaaazing story!! I absolutely loved it! I castigated myself after reading it for why it had taken me soo long to add it to my shelf! I recommend it to anyone who likes to read in-depth emotions and struggles!

    8. I still feel drained, speechless. OMG… I loved this book, it just blew my mind and had my heart pounding. After finishing I felt kind of lost, only very few authors can do that to me, Amy Lane is definitely one of them.Beneath the Stain is Mackey’s story… Mackey’s and his brother’s who are ‘white trash’ in the bigoted and ultra conservative little town Tyson they grew up. The story is about the guys escaping their hometown… and leaving Grant, Mackey’s love… behind and go out [...]

    9. Another brilliant narration from Nick J Russo. The story was already on my creme-de-la-creme shelf, and Nick just made all the characters come alive. This story is fairly angsty, so there were quite a few tears but so much love. 5 stars for this which I read over several weeks thanks to a DsP special deal.

    10. 5 'there aren't really enough stars for this book!‘Trav thought of the song – his song – and the cry from the invisible boy who slept in forgotten corners and lived to make people love him or hate him or anything so long as they didn’t forget his name.’BEST READ OF THE YEAR!! HOW? HOW CAN OUR WORDS DO JUSTICE TO THIS BOOK?There are stories we read that burrow their way into a little piece of our hearts, the ones we think about every now and again, and then there are stories like Beneat [...]

    11. "Music. It's what drives the fuckin' world."I loved this story. Mackey's journey was incredible. Drugs, sex and rock & roll. Everything I love in my rocker books was here. There was also heartache and love and so much beauty. I loved how the music was such a huge part of this story. Every song mentioned fit the story perfectly.What he'd really craved was this. Being possessed, being thoroughly taken over, being owned, body and soul, by someone you owned back.I was little conflicted about thi [...]

    12. 2 Angst Hatin' Stars.Gosh, sorry to ALL the Amy Lane Fan's So you askWhy did I get this book?Because, I like you feel Amy Lane is a gifted writers. But, sometimes, it just doesn't work out.

    13. “…if you want out,well it's up to you.Now don't let me down you better start movin' uptown.”Have you heard the song? If you have, you know it’s about saving yourself and your future despite the pain of leaving loved ones behind. If you've never heard the wretched country tale, I’ll give you the low down. A child had the unfortunate luck of uncontrollable circumstance. Born poor and raised by the skin of her mamma’s teeth, she is given a chance. A chance out of the future predetermine [...]

    14. Damn you Amy Lane. Damn youuuuu!This was me for the majority of this novel.This woman can write. Beautifully. When it first startedhonestly, I thought it was going to be a DNF because I couldn't relate to the MC at the time in the story. But the more I read and the more embroiled in their lives I became, the more entrenched I was in this story and I couldn't stop. I NEEDED to see how it would I play out because I was invested. Mackey is a exquisitely written character and I could really see and [...]

    15. 5+++ stars!!!I need to find myself againWHAT A BOOK! What a journey.I need a T-shirt that says:Amy Lane killed me Again!It's the third book by Amy Lane that is going strait to My-All-Time-Fav shelf! A record!I know that by purchasing the series not in seven parts, but as one book, I missed a few extra chapters that each part had (I only found out about it afterwards), but I am so glad I read it as one book without cutting it in the middle. This book needs to be devoted and appreciated as much as [...]

    17. Amazing book, beautifully written.Emotionally intense, with just the right amount of angst, this had me in its grip from beginning to end. The characters feel real, their pain is more than real and hit me right where it matters most. There was anger and anguish and regret and desperation and so so much heartache, but there is also so much love, so much passion and understanding. Mackey's development as a person and a gay man from beginning to end is awesome. And Trav just had me swoon all over t [...]

    18. This book is a winner to me! I loved everything about it: music, musicians, fabulous characters, and a overwhelming and touching story!When my friends asked me about a BR with this book, I felt a little worried, because Amy Lane is the queen of angst, and I thought that I would suffer a lot reading this book. But in fact, I didn't Yes, there are parts really dramatic but when you're reading about a love so strong, so pure and so powerful, is as if everything else was secondary! From the moment t [...]

    19. I won't attempt a review. I simply can't because I can't stop crying. This is Amy Lane at her finest, in my opinion. This book. This tale of a family of boys whose lives are born, fought, torn apart and put back together all with love and faith. It's brilliant and it's gorgeous. This was an amazing read. I loved Grant and Mackey. I loved Trav and Mackey. I loved Trav OH MY GAWD I loved Trav. The man is solid, even in his worry and uncertainty, he is solid and so strong and gorgeous. This was sad [...]

    20. Another favorits re-read 4/14/17I am on a roll !! Still love the shit out of this one !!Oh my godis book. It was amazing. I loved every second !!It's an MM romance, but for me it was so much more. It was about family, brothers, trust, love, fame, growing up, not giving up and surviving. It had so much. Some people found it very angsty, but I have to say that I've read way worse. Sure it was very emotional at timesd I definitely had some tears falling, but it was also beautiful and funny and sexy [...]

    21. Beneath the Stain by Amy Lane5 stars!!“You can’t be the whole album, Trav. You just can’t. But you can be the best songs.”Beneath the Stain was originally released as a seven part serial and now this amazing story is bundled up in a 500+ page book of pure exquisiteness. While this book is an M/M I have to say that side of the story kind of paled into the background, the beautiful writing and the hauntingly beautiful story was so compelling that you couldn’t help but be 100% emotionally [...]

    22. the most real and raw MM romance i've ever readwow, this book. it's probably the longest contemporary romance i've ever read but WELL worth itis book follows the story of Mackey, but to say it's just about him would be a disservice. it's about family, brotherhood, growing up in a small town, heartbreak, and redemption. it spans about 7 years and the writing reminded me a lot of the classics (think The Outsider's). i'll never be able to do justice to this story, beyond encouraging everyone i know [...]

    23. Classic Amy-angst. Loved the characters. Full review later, but recommended for fans of the high-emo-drama angsty stories Amy is known for. :)

    24. This was an awesome read! OMG OMG OMG! This was a "hit it out of the park" good book! read it friends!Highly recommended!

    25. Amy Lane is one of the best storytellers in the business and this was definitely one of her best work, if not the best. I felt engaged from the beginning to the end, but no runny mascara eyes this time. I love how Amy Lane (via Nick Russo the narrator) takes the reader on a journey with the characters from adolescent years to their time as grown men. It’s like the author is the driver, the character is the passenger, and I was in the back seat watching and listening. It was a quite a ride!This [...]

    26. Re-read Feb 15-17, 2017This was simply AMAZING!!!Amy Lane truly is a gifted genius. She has the wonderful ability to get to the core of her characters and breathe life into them. This book is raw, gritty and has a more sexually explicit undertone than most of her works. I loved it. Give me all that dirty, smelly and real stuff.I adored Mackey and I so wanted to hate Grant but I just couldn't. Travis grew on me slowly but totally won me over in the end.

    27. God, this was a totally awesome read, but also extremely heavy on the whole angst thing. Jeez, I feel like I've been put thru the wringer. I have to go read something light, fluffy, and for mercy's sakeHAPPY, right NOW.

    28. I read this book and understood why Amy is the Queen of Angst.This story is about Mackey. About his life, his family, his passion, his struggles, and his two greatest loves. Mackey lives with his mom and his brothers in a small two bedroom apartment. Moved by his greatest passion -music-, he puts a band together with his brothers and closest friends One of these friends is Grant Adams.At age 14 Mackey discovers things about himself, and discovers Grant as his greatest passion after music. They b [...]
