The Locker Room by Amy Lane

You’ve heard the saying before – don’t judge a book by its cover. It’s true! And this book is one of the best examples. The cover is truly horrendous. But the story is worth it!!!

The Locker Room – Amy Lane


This book was kinda epic. And yes, it’s another book that could use a new cover. If I wouldn’t have been so desperate for a new book this weekend, I would not have given this novel a chance, and that’s mainly because of the cover. It’s harsh – but the truth.


Now let’s get to the good part….

I honestly didn’t want to put the book down.

It’s a M/M sports romance that covers at least 10 years of relationship – like I said – EPIC!! From high-school to the NBA. One epic story! And what I loved the most was that the couple stayed strong the entire time. No silly misunderstandings etc – just a lot of trust and most of all LOVE!!!

EPIC – is the word that makes the most sense to describe this book. Not only because of the many years the couple was together. But also all the hurdles they had to overcome. The soulmate feel I got from both of them didn’t hurt either. It’s rare to read about a couple that has this bone deep faith in each other, and the notion of doubt never even rears its ugly head. I was in love with them myself.

The story really hooked me from beginning to end.

There was a lot of swoon happening – from ME!! A lot of AWWs – and Xander would have piped up with “we are not puppies” – but they were just so adorable together.

Two things prevented me from loving it even more than what I already did.

1) The writing. I skimmed a bit here and there. Mostly in the beginning. The writing was very dry. Factual at times. But still, I didn’t want to put it down. So, whatever my issues were, they were not strong enough, because I devoured this book in one sitting.

2) The ending. Actually I should say the ABSENCE OF AN ENDING!! Because there was NONE! I needed at least a couple more chapters. There was just too much at stake at the end. Too much turmoil to leave it at that. So, yes, the ending sucked.

But the book was GOOD!!!

So, all in all, a book I still would recommend to anyone that LOVES a new M/M sports romance for their tbr.

The Locker Room - Amy LaneXander 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?



Amy Lane dodges an EDJ, mothers four children, and writes the occasional book.
