Overview

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?

    The romance in this book is so well done that you could probably stick a fork in it and voila! It’s a feast for readers. Lane will take you through a full range of emotions and every second is worth it. ~ Under the Covers

    THE LOCKER ROOM could quite possibly be my favorite Amy Lane book. And I say that with great hesitation since all of the books I’ve read by Lane have been 4 stars or higher. But this love story between Xander and Chris is phenomenal and I think every M/M author can take away a lot from this book. Lane does everything right.

    The book starts off with a look into Xander’s rough childhood. He’s mother doesn’t care for him, instead only taking care of her man of the day and leaving Xander to fend for himself. The only thing that Xander has is his basketball which he uses as an escape. His talent is noticed by Chris, another avid basketball player and one day they have a friendly one-on-one game when Chris’s mother is late from picking him up. From there, the sweetness and the heartbreak begins.

    Lane doesn’t hold back with this book. Chris and Xander fall deeply in love but it isn’t always easy. As with a lot of athletes, they are faced with scrutiny in the public eye and it only worsens when their coach is a homophobe.

    Xander and Chris are so easy to like. They will have you laughing and crying with both their stories. However, the one thing I love most about this book is probably the sports theme. I used to be a basketball fanatic and was pretty loyal to my team until we began sucking so hard (so much for being loyal) so I don’t know why it took me so long to read this. You see a lot of sports romances but I don’t see too many focusing on basketball. This book reminded me of why I loved the game and I felt like I could relate and understand Xander and Chris’s devotion to the game.

    Not only does their love for the game run deep, but the romance in this book is so well done that you could probably stick a fork in it and voila! It’s a feast for readers. Lane will take you through a full range of emotions and every second is worth it. This book reminded me of why I love reading M/M so much.

    There is no question about it. I would definitely recommend this read to those who love M/M and sports romances. There’s not much out there that gets better than this.

    Great read

    A love story that was both enchanting and full of angst. The author did a great job of showing the deep love between thee very hot and sexy MC's but took the reader through the angst of being gay in college and the expected anti-gay NBA environment.

    I'm not a basketball fan but the author puts just enough in to support the story so I never felt bored with too basketball overload. A great read - but Amy Lane pretty much always writes stellar stories and I was not disappointed in this one at all!

    Beautiful Story

    I found that I could not put this story down. What a wonderful sense of family and belonging from the people who loved them.
