After reading House Keeping I was really looking forward to more from this author, and in fact the very start had me looking forward to a lovely angsty read full of emotions and love. Unfortunately what I got was pretty much long sex discriptions with some internal struggling from one character only. In fact Lex had very little in put in this story aside from sex. I would of loved to of heard more about Lex and his feelings. As a character he interested me, but I was left hardly knowing him at

I must admit I didn't agree with some of the characters actions. I didn't agree with some of the things they said. But this is fine . . . if they were like me they would be boring and nobody would want to read this story. And that would be a great loss.

This book upset me, made me laugh, I think I cursed once or twice, almost threw the kindle at one point . . . but I also laughed, got turned on (in oh so many ways), shivered and teared up. All of these things are good . . . if a book brings out e
2.5 to 3 stars. Good writing, but wasn't really what I was expecting. I think I was expecting alot of angst, but it seemed like one long sex scene. I never really connected with Lex either. (I know the book is from Mack's POV, but you never know how Lex feels or what his issues are)

Still an enjoyable quick read.
2.5 stars
It was interesting and I did like the writing, there is more sex than story. Could have been so much better if it was developed and focused more on the relationship.

Review Of A Beautiful Silence By Lee Brazil

I have recently gotten to know author Lee Brazil from talking to him via Facebook. My mother has been talking to him for a while and she told me about his book A Beautiful Silence. Now at this point I had to tell her how bogged down in author requested book reviews I was and therefore would read it at some point but was not going to be able to get do it soon. So of course my mother being the person that she is (pushy which is sometimes what makes her e
I'm really confused and I think maybe I read the wrong book. I have to look in to it later because the book I read I bought it at smashwords and it was 62 pages not 126 and it was really confusing. Mack was said to be 45 in the beginning of the book then at two other places he was 37. At the first sexscen there was a condom but not in the others. Mack told Lex that he loved him like that hadn't been said before and then we were told that they had been together for two years and in an other scen ...more

Interesting premise, but the piece is so short & undeveloped that the blurb really tells more of the story. Plot-lite with lots of D/s sex in between.

Too much sex scenes for a confusing short story.

Gosh, dr Mack has a teen girl brain trapped inside his messy one!!! Also, Lex is a kinda of an eccentric selfish medieval looking man!!

I got lost between the lust they insisted on calling love...

The first half of this novella kept me guessing as to where the story was headed. The relationship between Mack and Lex was a bit mysterious, but a bondage sex scene clearly showed how compatible they were in bed and was very hot! It takes them a while to sort out their relationship, and the result is another great bondage scene. Well worth the read for this author's first book.

So many Questions

I loved the story but wonder...
How did they ever meet?
How did they maintain their relationship for 2 years?
Where does this take them next?
Nov 27, 2011 Anke rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
Sorry, but for a better rating, there was too much missing in this story and this whole "we have to talk, oh, again no possibilty to have the big talk" was getting on my nerves. In the end nothing was really solved, at least for me.
Under-developed. Mack seemed like a nice guy who was getting treated pretty appallingly by his boyfriend. Lex... well, we really knew nothing about him other than he was a bit of an ass who liked D/s play. Plot-lite, heavy on the D/s smut.

Very poorly edited. Just one example: the blurb says Mack is 45, but in the story he's 37.
