forbidden love but oh so beautiful

This was a wonderful story - Full of lots of passion and emotion that you couldn't help but feel yourself. It was written really well and it flowed nicely. Gavin and Ash were great characters full of depth and personality. They acted their age and you could feel their feelings. And when they got together, holy hell was it H.O.T.!!!!!
This was one steamy, sexy, heart pounding book. Beautiful tale of forbidden love that is so beautiful.
I really loved it and highly

Oh.My.God! This story was amazing-balls. It made me feel damn near every emotion possible....**sigh

I can't even formulate a coherent review at the moment.

Location 985:
I was on a runaway train. I couldn't stop it, and I couldn't jump off. I knew it would crash, and I'd be hurt again but somehow I didn't care.

Oh.My.God! (Yeah I know I already said that) This was good! I have filed it on my favorites shelf. Not many books make it there. I'm a tough customer to satisfy.

If you love MM romance, wit

I did not read because:

First off, this has nothing to do with the author, but $10 for an under 200 page ebook is just too much to spend. Especially for someone like me who reads several books a week. But Bold Strokes Books is still chugging away, so what do I know?

Secondly, the May/December romance doesn't bother me (it usually isn't my preference, except under certain circumstances) but according to a few reviews, one MC is 34 and the other 17 or just newly 18. NOT going there. Way, way, way t

I hate to say that, I really do. But for me this book was just....meh.

It makes me sad really. This book had some pretty great potential. There were a lot of interesting ideas that Caine floated but never really did anything with: the idea of a porn star struggling to connect with people, to find love. The idea that our first loves will always have some kind of power over us, no matter how much we have tried to move on.

The biggest let down though, were the characters. Gavin was spoiled and anno

They say you never forget your first love, especially if that love still holds an uneasy sway over you. Ah but then there is that one true love you find, not necessarily always your first love. Aging gay porn star Ash Langdon has found both in the Armenian born brothers, Oliver and Gavin Dimitrije. Best friends for what seems like a lifetime, Oliver and Ash are joined at the hip. But there is something off about their relationship, something most people don’t pick up on. Oliver is very ...more

I had a lot of expectations of this book from the blurb and while I enjoyed the story of Ash and Gavin at its core, it just fell short for me, due to the amount of unanswered questions surrounding their romance.
Ash is a 34 year old porn star that seems to be at a crossroads in life, tired of his career, nursing an injury, taking a few too many pain killers as a result and seemingly at the beck and call of his best friend Oliver, a Hollywood film star. Gavin is Oliver’s 17 year old baby Brother a

Older. Pornstar. Gavin's brother ex.
Younger. Brother to a moviestar. Cut. Black eyes. Virgin. Happy trail. Black hair.

Its a bit off u know, at first. For a big brother to be that protective of his baby brother. From the start, i felt a bit incest atmosphere. Ash character has this fangirling vibrant everytime he thinks about

Really liked the premise and the sex scenes were smoking hot but I need more build up for my characters to feel that connection.
The sex happened almost immediately between an obviously young boy and an older porn star, so it lost the opportunity for a slower build of the relationship and therefore just felt a little creepy sometimes.
Also parts of the storyline led to dead ends, the weird siblings relationship, even the way Ash describe his relationship with Oliver lead the reader to believe fo

This is a steamy one and will definitely make you hot under the collar! I have to admit I wanted to slap Oliver a few times. I felt sorry for Gavin, under his brother's thumb, but Ash soon got him to let his hair down. I was keen to find out what Oliver had over Ash and that kept me guessing. I enjoyed Ash and Gavin's adventures in New Orleans and the descriptions of the city made me feel I'd had a real glimpse of it. Definitely one I'll be reading again

I got this book via NetGalley. Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this book.
I enjoyed this book immensely. The romantic aspect was very fulfilling, the erotic side even more so. The major plot twist was rather unexpected and different from what I've seen in other books. It may not be to everyone's tastes, but I still thought it was very well written.
Dec 16, 2014 Judy rated it really liked it
I've never read a book that was totally m/m relationship. It was enlightening and packed full of sex! It was a well written book and, I enjoyed reading it. Although, I know it's fiction, a 17 year old and a 30 something year old was kinda a buzz kill for me.
