Bethany reviews ‘Beneath The Stain’ pt.5. by Amy Lane (Published by Dreamspinner Press on September 26th, 2014)
We were provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Why I read this book: Well I think yall know but, if you need repeating……I’m obsessed with this book.
Well I was told *cough cough Ms Lane* that this weeks chapter would be good like last weeks. That I wouldn’t need my wine, or my tissues. That it wouldn’t leave me huddled in the corner in a fetal position. She lied. Let me explain a little bit about me. I am an emotional person. The smallest things will make me cry, I’m talking like a commercial with puppies and the waterworks start. I read books to escape the bad in the world so I tend to avoid books that I know will make me cry. This does NOT apply to Amy Lane’s book. Cause I know when I pick up one of hers, there is a HIGH chance I will need those tissues and that second glass of wine. There is also a very good chance that I WILL end up in the fetal position.
I know these weekly installments are torture, but they are a much welcomed torture. BUT this week has been by far the hardest for me. For some it might not be so bad but this one left me VERY emotionally drained. So much so that I am in a book funk, I have gone almost 12 hours without picking up another book. What has left me in such turmoil? Well that I can not say cause it would spoil too much.
What I can say is that when I pick up an Amy Lane book, I will get real. Real hurt, real emotions, real pain, real happiness and real joy. I can feel the emotions the characters feel. While I read her books I think, “God this crap could actually happen.” And this chapter was no different, she left me screaming, pounding my fist and crying like a baby. Again I will say it might not be that way for everyone but for me it hurt and left me knowing once again that releasing a chapter once a week is pure brilliance. She once again has left me speechless begging for more. Until next week………
Where to buy: Dreamspinner
Amy Lane has four children, two cats, a love starved Chi-who-what, a crumbling mortgage and an indulgent spouse. She also has too damned much yarn, a penchant for action adventure movies, and a need to know that somewhere in all the pain is a story of Wuv, Twu Wuv, which she continues to believe in to this day! She writes fantasy, urban fantasy, and m/m romance–and if you give her enough diet coke and chocolate, she’ll bore you to tears with why those three genres go together. She’ll also tell you that sacrifices, large and small, are worth the urge to write.
