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.
This book was a WOW 5 stars for me!! You know how some books just sneak up on you and grab you and don’t let you go?? Beneath the Stain did that for me. It was so beautiful and touching and, at times, so painful to read I had tears streaming down my face. I FELT everything and rooted for the characters the whole way through. The story was not only gripping, it also had the painful lows and soaring highs that are true to life, love, and the journey of self discovery. I loved, loved, loved all the characters but Travis and Mackey in particular stole my heart.
“I know sometimes it feels good when it hurts,”…”But I think you’ve been hurt enough.”
Travis and his fierce protective spirit and Mackey because of his beautiful broken soul. I would also be remiss not to mention that the use of music in this book was perfection. It added such a depth to the book for me and made me fall I’m love with the story so much more. It has angst, heartbreak, joy, love, a beautiful journey, and some UNFORGETABLE men. If you havent read this gem, what the hell are you waiting for? 😉
