Racing for the Sun - Amy Lane A good darker love story from Amy Lane. Sonny and Ace are both damaged men, trying to get it together when they meet in the Army. Ace notices something in Sonny and takes him under his protection while they are stationed together for 2 years, making plans to meet up and start a business on discharge. We don't get a lot of them together during those years, outside of a few significant events.

It's a slow road for these two to get together. Ace is determined to do everything and anything to protect Sonny and make his dreams come true. Sonny is somewhat childlike and his overwhelming need to be claimed by Ace only hints at the darkness that was his life before he met Ace.

The emotions are strong and the relationship is as unhealthy as it is beautiful and sweet. Another recommended read from Amy Lane.
