I'm on the fence with this one. As usual, I love Amanda Lawrence Auverigne's ability to create realistic characters and original scenes; however, as someone who's worked with intimate partner violence survivors, I saw some inaccuracies in this short story. As with several of the author's stories, Three Lanes Down is graphically violent, and her talent for imagery does not lack.

I did not even read this beyond the bowling alley scene. I found it hard to read -- not every move needs to be described. Most people have bowled before so it doesn't have to be pointed out that you pick up the ball from the upper part of the return. I found the sex talk and fake boobs showing-off very off-putting as well. I guess it just wasn't my kind of story.

Easy to read. Well written for what it is. Mostly believable up to the part where the rent a cops got attacked, some of the staff would have stepped in then I think. Thank you for the book by the way. I will read more of your work.
