Another winner for me. Yes, I'll read shopping lists or the proverbial telephone directory for her work. You'll need your wits about you for the first couple of chapters, and there are triggers to look out for, but a lot of the nasty stuff doesn't appear on page, it's assumed that you'll know what's going on in the background. I could've have done with a little more truth and a little less secrecy from Linton at times, but that's a minor point; everyone has secrets, it's up to you whether you trust and let your significant other in enough to tell them everything....even the really shameful stuff, and I'm sure that's something Linton and Thorne will work on.

I really loved the interaction between the two MC's, so hot, so funny and quite romantic at times. Did not enjoy it when Thorne kept having temper tantrums, but therapists often work miracles...also liked that he's been cast as Aden in a film entitled Dirty Angel **big grin**. Dirk just about grew on me at the end, but as far as Max and his brother Owen are concerned...well, let's just say Max got his comeuppance and Owen needs to grow up and stop living in the past. 4.5 stars from me and this pic is very relevant to the story....

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is a difficult book in the beginning, as it is challenging to find characters who are really good. The names we know we need to look out for demonstrate behaviours that are flawed, unkind, and unethical. So Ms Elsborg sets us up, draws us in and then slowly peels back the layers.

What I guess I am saying is, give this every opportunity to deliver a great story - because I believe it does achieve it. Linton gives us a lot of himself, and he deserves our patience, support and sympathy. Even Thorne, who behaves appallingly at times, loves his brother, River, and gets to understand how much better things can be when someone stands up to him. Both men grew up protecting their brothers, and keeping the world at bay - watching those barriers fall and be repaired is both frustrating and engaging.

This is one of those books which will stick with me for a long while, because life isn't all about roses, but can still be about love.

After a slightly confusing blurb, which I ignored as so far I've loved everything Barbara has written that I've read, I got straight into this book and didn't want to put it down.

I found all the characters well drawn, and I was really pulled into the different story lines. I was expecting not to like Thorne very much but I couldn't help fall under his spell much as Linton did. I loved the interaction between the two sets of brothers, and kept turning the pages late into the night.

I now find myself hoping that Dirk might get his own book!

...must have been doing her homework like a very, very dedicated student, lol!

Once again, I was privileged to beta this tale for BE, and in my first read, I thought Thorne was a b'stard and that he needed a good smack or few. I am glad to say that I read more of him and into him in my next reads, and I loved the 'fixes' he put in place. I really liked Linton on the first read through (pretty sure that's him on that very lickable cover, lol!) and he got even sweeter in words and deeds with further acquaintance.

So, as the blurb tells you, this is a book with one character forced into a game of deception, and one who uses his acting career - a different kind of game - to maintain a mask and an practiced indifference to things. Except, underneath it all, he's lonely and fed up of being seen as a commodity. Yes, Linton has more secrets than Thorne, and yes, Linton is the more admirable character, but there was good to Thorne, too, in the love that he had for his autistic brother, in what he did for his best friend, Josh, and in the little things that he did and kept free from publicity and for Linton. I ended up liking them both, but I'd secretly wanted some mega-grovelling from Thorne because of the wrongs he did, and boy did BE deliver. I won't Spoil this tale for you here, but one of the best bits is after an accident when Thorne's emotions break through and Linton sees him naked in more than just the physical for the first time. Loved these scenes.

There's the normal BE humour that I expect from her tales, and it works so well to loosen up the uptight Thorne. Penguins, pebbles, clouds, mating rituals - it's there, it's LOL and it meant something to the leads - can't Spoil this for you, either, but I love the 'special pebble' thing. It's my thing!

ARC courtesy of the author and Bayou Book Junkie, for my reading pleasure (but I bought the final version, because it's that good!).

Wow!! This book had everything...
At first I found it a bit hard to keep up as each main character has side characters and when they start to cross over I had to keep reminding myself of the relationships but it was so worth it!!
Linton has been working away for 3 months and all he wants to do is get home and relax. What he finds when he gets there though ruins that plan. His wayward brother has moved himself in without asking and turned his lovely home in to a dump, complete with a couple in his bed who have quite clearly paid him for his services.
Kicking him out in anger seemded like a good idea at the time but what happens leads him to make some drastic and life changing decisions.
Thorne is a film star with an attitude. He hates the attention but what he loathes more is getting hurt and the front he portrays when this happens has landed him in a mess he can't even imagine.
A humiliated ex partner with a grudge sets out to destroy him, using Linton's desperate need for money to help his brother. Their lifes become intertwined but when feelings enter the picture, all deals are off with some seemingly dire consequences.
A fantastic story that once I got my head around who everyone was and their connections, I couldn't put down.
4 out of 5 stars.
