Shameless Recommendation

Solange Recommends

I think... if you threatened to take my Kindle away and set it on fire if I didn't give you the one gay romance book you should read this year... I think this would be it. Beneath the Stain isn't a roller coaster ride so much as it's a life journey. The heartache is almost unbearable but the sweet moments when they come are just as painful--in a good way. If you like angst as much as I do, you'll get a year's worth right here. I had to put this book down and just breathe so I could recover. [December 2014]

Publisher Synopsis

via Amazon

In a town as small as Tyson, CA, everybody knew the four brothers with the four different fathers—and their penchant for making good music when they weren't getting into trouble. For Mackey Sanders, playing in Outbreak Monkey with his brothers and their friends—especially Grant Adams—made Tyson bearable. But Grant has plans for getting Mackey and the Sanders boys out of Tyson, even if that means staying behind.

Between the heartbreak of leaving Grant and the terrifying, glamorous life of rock stardom, Mackey is adrift and sinking fast. When he's hit rock bottom, Trav Ford shows up, courtesy of their record company and a producer who wants to see what Mackey can do if he doesn't flame out first. But cleaning up his act means coming clean about Grant, and that's not easy to do or say. Mackey might make it with Trav's help—but Trav's not sure he's going to survive falling in love with Mackey.

Mackey James Sanders comes with a whole lot of messy, painful baggage, and law-and-order Trav doesn't do messy or painful. And just when Trav thinks they may have mastered every demon in Mackey's past, the biggest, baddest demon of all comes knocking.

[su_quote]The end. This was the end. He poured his heart out into the song, lamenting for the lover who would be gone when the sun was high and the sweat poured down their necks, crying for the kisses that would never come again. Because they wouldn’t.[/su_quote]

[su_quote]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.[/su_quote]

Beneath the Stain

GENRE

Though Solange has moved on from Shameless Book Club and is living somewhere in Europe, we're gladly keeping her recommendations alive and published because they were just that good. --- Solange reads and writes gay romance like it’s her job — because it is. She likes her heroes and heroines tortured and horny, her plots juicy and riddled with angst, and rarely passes up the opportunity to add in some hurt and comfort. When she’s not reading or writing, Solange rides horses, hikes around Michigan’s plentiful lakes or whizzes down mountains with a snowboard to her feet. She’s a speed-junky, a caffeine addict and a dog lover. If you’d like to get in touch, email her here. She doesn’t bite, unless that floats your boat.
