Gabriel and Tristan Stalling parted ways seven years ago when their father kicked Gabriel out of the house for being gay. The years that passed were hard on both brothers. Tristan was left with his guilt and shame for not sticking up for his twin, the relentless need to please their parents, and the gnawing ache for his other ...more
"Living without Tristan was like living with only half his soul. The other part of him felt ripped and gouged out, hollow and aching."
While Broken wasn't perfect for me or mind-blowing, I still enjoyed it and thought it was a very good read. Gabriel and Tristan made the story for me and I ended up really loving those two! They were wonderful together. It was my first twincest story, so I wasn't quite sure how I'd feel about it when fist starting, but I kind of just wanted them ...more

Not my cup of tea...and not because of the incest (which was a bit weird) but because of the many repetitions, contradictions and so on. At one point a brother would promise not to leave again...then he almost leaves few paragraphs later...then he promises again...then he thinks about leaving again...ugh.
Then there was the time when o ...more
This was my first attempt at twincest. I have to admit the idea of incest kind of skeeves me out. But, who am I to judge on love?
However, as I am reading I find these are IDENTICAL twins. Isn't that kind of weird? You basically finding yourself sexually attractive? I am already looking for a fraternal twincest book I can get my hands on.
While I was working out the identical part, there was still something missing here. I loved Tristan and Gabriel's relationshi ...more
Tristan is back after 7 years away from Gabriel. The brothers never stopped talking, even though Gabriel was tossed out of home by his father at 17/18; and Tristan didn't do anything about it. Basically the book is about the bond the tw ...more
There’s so much yearning between these two brothers, Gabriel and Tristan. It makes you wonder how is was possible for them to be apart for seven years, for all those very yearny, horny formative years, the late teens through mid-twenties. But, time passes quickly when you’re building a life.
Gabriel has become a famous rocker. Tristan has built and lost a business and comes back to his brother looking for help and connection. They discover that they’ve been miserable apart but don’t quite know ho ...more
Twincest is my kink especially when it shows that they are in love and no one is being abused, used or humiliated by the other.
I give Broken two stars.
I gave up on it after having read ca. 70% of the book.
First, I must admit that twincest/incest isn't anything I would read again. I'm not really repulsed by it, but in my opinion incest of any kind is not very understandable (except in the case of two siblings not knowing of one another, meeting and falling in love by chance...).
Growing up together in a healthy environment usually doesn't "lead to" siblings desiring each other in a sexual way, IMO.
Secondly: Regardless ...more
I do get both sides of the argument with this type of storyline; the "they're brothers, ewwww" side and the "we ...more
So...this was my first twincest read and I didn't know what to expect. I blame Susan for my curiosity ;)
Allthough some things bothered me, this was a very nice, short and sexy read.
Tristan and Gabriel are 25 year old twins and eventhough they are identical twins, they couldn't be more different. They have always been real close, but when they turned 17, Gabriel came out as gay and was kicked out by their parents. Tristan still being a kid himself didn't stand up for his brother and even sided ...more
Ok first off…this COVER!!! GAG!!! There is nothing sexy about this cover at all…and certainly does not depict the rock star and his conservative twin!!! So let’s just clear the visual palate, shall we??
Now…this is more what I was wanting. This has story! This has dialog! This has two identical twins who were separated for more than 7 years! Dual POV! Intensity! Hot sex between our dear brothers filled with need, want, possessiveness and desire. To say I was left sat
Yep. Even on the far-to-soon second read (as part of my music project), this is still a pretty good book. It’s fairly well-written and the characters seem to make sense. It’s not shallow as a puddle either, although I can’t be certain of levels of depth these days. Sure, the focus remained entirely on the protagonists; everyone else was fairly clichéd. All right, the guys were clichés too, of course, but well done ones.
Either way, it’s a pretty rewarding read and works the whole twin ...more
Tristan and Gabriel are separated by family loyalties when Gabriel came out of the closet when he was a teenager. Because of this conflict, the twins are separated for seven years before circumstances bring them back to together. I liked the fact that the twins were different in their characteristics, and ...more
So yeah, an enjoyable read. Very enjoyable.
I hated t ...more
Well, this is a first.
I have never read anything involving m/m incest before, but considering I have read books with pseudo-incest before, this one wasn't much of a shocker. Nevertheless, it is not for everyone.
I gave it 2 stars because story was repetitive and a little bit cheesy. Yes, they were sweet and seemed genuinely in love, but that simply wasn't enough for me to like the book so much.
After reading this one, I am still not sold on the twincest idea. I keep thinking I will read one that will feel more plausible, realistic, etc. The writing was fine, and the story was cute, but I wasn't wowed in any one direction.
7 years later he is in a top selling rock band, and Tristan, down on his luck, flies to LA to be with him until he is back on his feet.
I guess what follows is some really hot twin sex.
There is some story. Gabes father dies and Tristan becomes estranged with his mom and then the 2 are held at gunpoint by Gabes ex.
A nice way to spend an hour or two.
