At last, I've being waiting for this next installment for ages and it didn't disappoint! It was like catching up with an old friend after a long time apart. Well written, its in places funny, sad, poignant, altogether a great read, I very much enjoyed reading it especially as it was longer than the others, and can highly recommend it.Just hope there's more to come of Gilli and his Daddies Shane and Dick.

If you haven't read any Gillibran Brown before then you don't know what you're missing. Gilli's books are my favourite series of books ever, and I recommend them to anyone and everyone. Yes, they are laugh out loud funny, but there is also a sad undertone to Gilli's memoirs. His observations about life are so poignant you'd have to be completely devoid of a soul not to fall in love with him.

As always, a beautiful, moving look at life with the wonderful, wonderful Gilli.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yay! Another installment of Gilli's story with Dick and Shane 2 Nov. 2012
By Fangtasia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I finished this book I was both glad and sad. Glad I read it, I didn't know how much I'd missed Gilli's voice. Sad, because it's over, will probably read all the books again, just for Gilli's company and inimitable voice. And the fact these books can have me laughing until tears run down my face, then again crying for real, all within a few pages. Genius!

This installment is excellent, shows growth in the characters and the relationship, in so many ways. Gilli's growing pains are excruciating, to him, his Daddies, and his readers. The Daddies cope as best they can, with a boy in denial, a tanking economy, recalcitrant family members, death and taxes. All the inevitables in life.

Mr. Brown posted in his online diary that this book might be his last. Dear author please no, don't do that, don't let "post-project blues" cheat your loyal readers from the unparalleled experience of your diary entries turned books. Take a page from Dick's book and just have crazy sex 24/7 to get the blues out of your system. After all, you do have two Daddies who are extremely susceptible to your charms. Then embark into the next one. There's a whole bunch of people wanting to know how 2009 went for you, particularly about Dick's Christmas gift to Shane and the Christmas cake thing, among other things.

I learned a couple of things while reading this book: a) Gilli just turns my "Mom" button "on", I'd just succumb to all his ploys and tantrums. If I had anything to do with him, he'd be spoiled beyond rescue. And b) I vehemently envy his neighbor Eileen, for the ease with which he goes over to visit. He does muse that his relationship with Eileen is almost that of mother and son, bearing out my first point above.

Ooooh, one other thing I suspected and confirmed in this book: Leo is absolutely salivating at the thought of getting his hands on Gilli, permanently. And Jak is just plain jealous, is all.

If you haven't read the previous installments, much of what goes on in this story may not make sense. Don't fret, though, the whole series is worth reading, I assure you. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Triumph For the Houseboy!!! 2 Oct. 2012
By Booklover1960 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Gilliflowers, Bonds of Affection, Memoirs of a Houseboy 2008, is the fourth book in the houseboy series. While you don't have to read the other books first, to truly get the Gilli experience, I would recommend it. It is the story of the life of Gillibran Brown, Houseboy and his partners Dick and Shane. Gilli has the power to make me laugh out loud at parts of the book and cry at others. You get involved with their lives and I find myself rooting for them and hurting for them. This book details a turbulent year in Gilli's life and the effect these changes have on him and his relationship with his men. The book is well written, humorous, poignant, and a great read. I highly recommend all of his books and I hope that in time Gilli will continue with the series, as his fans will be waiting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gilli Captures My Heart! 11 Nov. 2012
By A Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved it. I didn't want it to end, which is surprising, since the book does go around in circles the entire time. Gilli gets upset (usually about his alcohol ban/disappointment over epilepsy), he's punished, he feels better, and it starts over again. But I love Gilli. I get that he's a brat. But that's kind of the whole point of this domestic discipline relationship, right? He's kind of annoying, but he's also super clever, and I really do get where he's coming from most of the time. I hope there's a new book soon. I'm nowhere near ready to give up on these three
5.0 out of 5 stars I can't get enough of Gilli 13 Nov. 2016

He is a like what Leo calls him a "Bebe Brat" and always will be. I see him as a very jealous young man, who doesn't like sharing his men folks.
