BOLT-HOLE is a refreshing new story from Amy Lane. Loyal readers will have much to rave about! There is your angst that she is known for, a killer love story between two adorable characters and also an intriguing murder mystery that really transformed this book from great to amazing!

The first thing I loved about this book is Terrell Washington and Colby Meyers. Terrell is gay and black and for some, those two things don’t go together. Naturally, as with all of Amy Lane’s books, there is a touch of angst that makes readers immediately feel for the characters. Terrell and Colby work at Papiano’s restaurant but there is way more to their relationship than that. They have a friendship that is strong and memorable, that makes for the perfect foundation for a relationship. I thought the romance bloomed at a good pace and there were some really great moments between Terrell and Colby that made my heart melt.

The second thing I loved about this book is the mystery. Lane really did a good job in this regard. She kept me guessing while simultaneously building a believable romance. I was impressed by the way she was able to strike a balance between the mystery and romance. What a way to add layers to a story!

What Lane accomplishes in this book is impressive. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that readers who haven’t tried Amy Lane to do so with this book. The book is fast-paced, engaging and full of romance that any reader would enjoy.

About Amy Lane

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
