Présentation de l'éditeur

Xander Karcek has only wanted two things in his life: Christian Edwards and basketball—the man he loves and the game that let him escape a childhood he’d rather forget. His two obsessions have served him well. He and Chris beat the odds and stayed together through high school, college, and right on to the NBA.

But life under fame’s microscope isn’t easy, especially when two men are pretending to be frat-buddies so the world doesn’t know they’re the next best thing to married. Their relationship survives the sacrifices they make and the lies they tell to stay together, but when their secret is exposed, the fallout might destroy them when nothing else could.

Chris and basketball are the two things holding Xander together. Now the world is asking Xander to make a choice. Is there an option that includes a future with the man he loves?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm in awe! 4 mai 2011
Par Astrid - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It's 1 am and I have to be up at 6 to get ready for work. But here I am, inspired and desperately needing to share with everyone how absolutely fabulous I found this book. Amy Lane has surpassed herself with this story. I am not the type of reviewer who breaks down the story piece by piece. I want to share with you how I felt reading this emotional tale. It brought be to tears, made me laugh, and all the emotions in between. The author did a wonderful job of pacing the story and didnt overwhelm the reader with needless scenes. Up to this point I had a clear favorite in this m/m genre. If you enjoy m/m, dont enjoy reading non-stop nookie scenes and are looking for a story that has a heart and soul - this is it. Let Amy Lane take you on a 15 year journey that will tear you down and lift you up. I highly recommend thin "The Locker Room". Now I am going to go look and see what other books Ms. Lane has written to be sure I've checked them all out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tore my heart to pieces and put it back together again! 8 juin 2011
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I haven't read a bad book from Amy Lane - I love her voice, her clean writing, and her angsty stories! Even more than the "Promises" series (which I thoroughly enjoyed!), this book just took my heart, wrung it out, then pieced it back together again. And I still can't stop thinking about Xander and Chris, even a day after finishing the novel! No, I'm not a big sports fan and I hesitated to buy the book for that reason alone, but it really isn't about sports at all - it's a story about love, doing something that you love, and what's really important in life.


Xander is a starving, neglected teen when he meets Chris on the basketball court. Both boys are outstanding athletes, although it is Xander who is the true superstar (even though he lives for Chris alone, and seeks none of the limelight himself). Chris' loving family takes Xander into their fold, and the boys fall quickly and deeply in love. True love. The kind we would all give our eyeteeth for! But these are genuinely sweet boys, and they wait to consummate their relationship until they are both headed to college on a basketball scholarship.

The story follows the 2 boys as they mature, become men, and rise to fame in the ranks of the NBA. All along, they are entirely devoted to each other, and completely petrified of anyone finding out that they are "married" to each other in all but name. They play varsity hoops for UNC-Chapel Hill (okay, Amy, as a Duke fan, I'll forgive you this little indiscretion) and manage to get drafted together.

And here's where the angst just had me choking up, time and time again. The coach of their pro team is a real bastard and a bigot. Xander and Chris end up compromising their relationship to try to fit into the "straight" mold, even sleeping with women to placate their coach and "be" what they believe they are expected to be. And it just begins to destroy them, from the inside out. And when the bigot coach catches them together, he adds insult to injury and puts their longterm, loving relationship to the test. And tested it is! I cried along with both men, I rooted for them on and off the court, and I melted to jelly at the end.

I hestitated to buy the book in part because I'm a complete sucker for a HEA, and I was worried from the other reviews that there might not be one. YES. THERE IS! There is one big career question left unresolved at the end, but I didn't care - that wasn't what the end or the HEA was about. It was about love, acceptance and making choices because you know what the important things in life are. In the end, for Xander and Chris, their love was the most important thing.

A beautiful book about love - bittersweet in parts, angsty, too, but oh, SO worth it!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Cut above 13 mai 2011
Par Michael L - Publié sur Amazon.com
Xander Karcek and Christian Edwards r two very likable characters. For some reason, writers these days keep coming up with characters who r unpleasant. It's a nice change to see characters whom I can cheer for. This novel is a little "The Dreyfus Affair-esque" from several years earlier, except instead of major league baseball, it's the NBA. I love the sports theme, and bringing it to the professional level was an added treat. The book was well researched, and Amy Lane seems to know much about basketball and the NBA. The tension in the novel kept me wanting to keep reading. The sex was good and kept to a minimal. So many gay male romances today are nothing but sex scene after sex scene--and poorly written sex too!! This book is a cut above.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay, what did I miss? 17 juillet 2011
Par Cass - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I wasn't expecting much from this book, but the reviews were excellent and I was excited to read it. Instead, I found it trivial and boring.

Lane never gave the reader time to fall for the characters. Their friendship-to-relationship happened in an instant, and suddenly Xan and Chris were soulmates who would never leave each other. Their love felt more like 16-year-old "We'll last forever, after only knowing each other a short while" love, portrayed in 35-year old adults who never matured from their 16 year old selves in the book. There was a time my heart broke for the characters (spoiler: when they had to hide their relationship by sleeping with women) but otherwise I never felt much of a connection. Lastly, Xan and Chris never took a step back from their relationship to work on their individual lives: they were a "couple" and nothing else, and lived only for each other, oblivious to the outside world. It was too much "I'd do anything for you" and hardly realistic, and I quickly became annoyed with their constant clinging to each other.

Overall, it was an okay read - better than some m/m novels, but nowhere near the good ones.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Read 8 juin 2011
Par LAS Reviewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Xander and Chris have always been in love, but hiding that for the sake of their basketball career may destroy the thing they value most. Since they met, Xander and Chris have been inseparable. They knew they were in love while still teens and never wanted to be apart. This meant college together and eventually the NBA together. Yet the world of professional athletes isn't easy for a gay couple and being forced to hide and lie about their relationship may just destroy it.

The Locker Room is a real tear jerker. Lane knows how to write amazing angst driven stories and this is no exception. The lead characters are strong, unique, charming, and filled with drama. In fact the only drawback is that this story may be too drama filled for some readers. The men tend to react in extremes, huge highs and despairing lows. Small events that may seem tough to the average reader, such as being separated from your partner for six weeks, end up being the depths of hell for these characters. Almost like the world is ending and life can't go on. So some readers may not appreciate or particularly like those kinds of melodramatic exaggerations.

For those that do though, this novel delivers romance and drama at its finest. The conflict is mostly external as Xander and Chris are in love and confident in that love from the beginning. It's mostly the outside forces working to tear the two apart. Hiding the nature of their relationship causes the men to do things they wouldn't otherwise and they definitely suffer emotionally and later physically from it. The writing is good and the pace very quick, showing the various complexities of the characters extremely well. None of the characters are shallow or vapid, but full and rich with a purpose to each one.

There are a few hiccups in the story such as some questionable behavior by coaches, a tendency to over use parentheses to tell information, and the fact that the men tend to throw up constantly due to emotional stress. Yet these are really minor issues with a story as strong and moving as this one. One warning about the ending is that it lets the reader decide what happens. As you'll see though, it couldn't end any other way and you won't want to miss it.
