Publisher's Summary

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.

Amy Lane at her best...

As a huge fan of Amy Lane's writing ability, Beneath the Stain equaled her many exceptional stories that have become a part of my little world. I read one review that stated that this book "wreaked" the reader and I think that is an excellent descriptor for the intense components of the story. I was indeed WREAKED, emotionally. Not that I am surprised by that fact. This story, as with most of Lane's stories, had me reaching every gambit of emotion that flows in the stream of emotions. I laughed, I sighed, I cried, I smiled, I frowned, I cried, I sobbed (like a little girl), and then I smiled again. Nick J. Russo's narration was fantastic and helped to put me in the middle of this story. Mackey and Trav's story mixed with the supporting characters provided a journey that one must take. Overcoming heartache is a bitch and sometimes at the end of that path, light shines anew...loved,
loved, loved this story. Did I mention that I loved this story! Certainly would recommend!!!

Yes, it made me cry again!

If you could sum up Beneath the Stain in three words, what would they be?

How do I love this book. It will make you ache, cry, smile and fall in love. I know that what Amy Lane offers is always good, but this book is so much more. Joy in epic proportions.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Took a little while for me to get into this book, and it's definitely a story you need to be in the right mood for, but when you're in that mood, it's absolutely incredible! You just need to be ready for angst. And happiness. And more angst! But it's worth it!

Nick J. Russo was the perfect narrator for this story. I enjoyed every second of his narration and look forward to listening to more of him in the future!

Another superb performance from Nick....

I really loved the book, and was chuffed to bits when Mr Russo was asked to narrate. I knew that the audio would be full of emotion, and Nick nailed it perfectly!!
