A Beneath the Stain Novel
Everybody thinks Mackey Sanders's Outbreak Monkey is the last coming of Rock 'n' Roll Jesus, but Cheever Sanders can't wait to make a name for himself where nobody expects him to fill his famous brothers' shoes. He's tired of living in their shadow.
Blake Manning has been one of Outbreak Monkey's lead guitarists for ten years. He got this gig on luck and love, not talent. So hearing that Cheever is blowing through Outbreak Monkey's hard-earned money in an epic stretch of partying pisses him off.
Blake shows up at Cheever's nonstop orgy to enforce some rules, but instead of a jaded punk, he finds a lost boy as talented at painting as Mackey is at song-making, and terrified to let anybody see the real him. Childhood abuse and a suicide attempt left Cheever on the edge of survival-a place Blake knows all too well.
Both men have to make peace with being second banana in the public eye. Can they find the magic of coming absolute first with each other?

This was a long-awaited book for me. At the end of Beneath the Stain, I really became attached to Blake. When I read that he and Cheever would be involved I was seriously worried. I didn't know that I could ever even LIKE Cheever based on his past behavior. However, the evolution of Cheever as a character was exciting, heartbreaking, and joyful in this book. I hope to eventually hear more from these guys!
