A Solid Core of Alphaby Amy Lane
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
In an act of heroism and self-sacrifice, Anderson Rawn's sister saved him from the destruction of their tiny mining colony, but her actions condemned the thirteen-year-old to ten years of crushing loneliness on the hyperspace journey to a new home. Using electronics and desperation, Anderson creates a family to keep him company, but family isn't always a blessing.
When Anderson finally arrives, C.J. Poulson greets him with curiosity and awe, because anyone who can survive a holocaust and reinvent holo-science is going to be a legend and right up C.J.'s alley. But the more C.J. investigates how Anderson endured the last ten years, the deeper he is drawn into a truly dangerous fantasy, one that offers the key to Anderson's salvation—and his destruction.
In spite of his best intentions, C.J. can’t resist the terribly seductive Anderson. Their attraction threatens to destroy them, because the heart of a man who can survive the destruction of his people and retain his sense of self holds a solid core of alpha male that will not be denied.

Reviewed by Christina Marie at The Morning After Romance: Brilliant. This was amazing. So close to perfection. Probably my favorite book of the year. Just wow. WOW. I could not put it down. I am running out of ways to express my love for Amy Lane. She just slays me. She is so adept at writing these beautifully painful scenes. They're just...no words. Amy Lane writes amazing characters, period. I have no choice but to empathize with them. I can always relate to them. They are deep. They grow. They break my heart. I felt so much pain for Anderson and C.J., and ok happiness too. I giggled, I cried buckets, I smiled a lot. My sad "omg when will all the pain stop" tears turned into happy sentimental tears by the end. I'm actually pretty sure that I'm dehydrated right now, because I could. Not. Stop. Crying. Anderson has so many facets to his personality. He is one of the most fascinating characters I've encountered. Ever. He needs lots of cuddles to atone for the pure mess that was his life. I loved him, and he ripped my heart out of my chest repeatedly. C.J. was lovely too. I liked his POV the most. He also contributed to the heart ripping. The love between Anderson and C.J. is so raw. It's sweet, it hurts, and it's beautiful. I just felt so much for both characters. Amy Lane just makes me FEEL. So many different emotions. I was drowning in them. Also, amazing sexual tension. I love me some sexual tension, and this book had it in spades. Oh, hell yes. Anderson and C.J. were on fire. Seriously, this book is HOT. The world building in this is so beyond great. I actually refuse to summarize the plot based on the fact that I would never be able to do it justice. I was hooked from the first page, and I wish Amy Lane would write more Science Fiction. The only remotely negative thought I'm left with is I that the ending went a teensy longer than necessary. Also, I beyond hate the cover. At the end of the day, this was brilliant. 4.5 Stars
this m/m love story and scifi adventure is worth your time
