A fan of M/M Romance, Horror, and other things that go bump in the night.
5 stars. The Best of the Best. I love this book. (Very rare.)
4 stars. Really like. Almost perfect. Will read again.
3 stars. Like it. A good book. (Most are going to fit in this category.)
2 stars. It was okay. Doubt I'll ever read it again. To many issues.
1 star. Didn't like it or Not for Me. (Very rare.) Won't read again or recommend it.
The fourth installment of the Red Dirt series featuring Charles and Travis. Basically this book is all hearts and flowers. There's no big drama/angst. It reads like a very long epilogue which makes for a nice relaxing read. 3.5 stars. If your a fan of the series a must, but maybe not for everyone.
Moving from a Texas ranch to an Australian Outback station was a life changing decision for Travis Craig. Though it wasn’t really a decision at all. Something in his bones told him to go, though he had no clue as to why.
Until he met Sutton Station’s owner, Charlie.
Loving Charlie shouldn’t have been easy. The man was stubborn, and riddled with crippling self-doubt. No, it shouldn’t have been easy at all. Yet somehow, falling in love with Charlie was the easiest thing in the world.
Loving him was easy. Living with him, teaching him how to love in return and, more importantly, how to love himself, was not.
But Travis knew all along it’d be worth it. He knew the man with the red dirt heart was destined to be his. Just like he knew the red dirt that surrounded him was where he was supposed to be.
In the final instalment of the Red Dirt Series, we see Charlie through Travis’ eyes. We see how much he’s grown and how much he loves. We go back to Texas with them, and we see Charlie get everything he truly thought he never deserved.
Red Dirt Heart 4 is Travis’ story.
And this is the story of not just one red dirt heart, but two.
Of all the Gay Romance novels I've read, none punch quite a wallop as Amy Lane's books. Her characters are three dimensional: broken, used, flawed, funny, sad, heroic, passionate, cruel, and kind.
Beneath the Stain is another in a long line of her books that should come with a warning label. "Box of Tissues needed."
