    Another short, nice, entertaining read. A hot PI, Bram, and a sweet, traumatised Doc, Declan ;) Looooots of smut!!! :D The plot picks up almost 2 months after the events in Going Against Orders, where Bram and Declan were some minor secondary characters. But I think it might be read as a standalone cause the plot, although not overly developed, is concise and full of twists. Off to the last part of Men in Love ...

    After reading the previous book, which sets up this one, I pretty much had to move right on to reading this one. I wanted to know how things worked out with Bram and Declan and what each was hiding about their pasts. It's a short read and was fairly decent, but I thought it could have been much better. Series Note: this series should be read in order. Summary: While visiting friends in Oklahoma in the last book, security expert Bram Blackstone meets doctor Declan O'Malley.

I wanted to know how things worked out with Bram and Declan and what each was hiding about their pasts. It's a short read and was fairly decent, but I thought it could have been much better. Series Note: this series should be read in order. Summary: While visiting friends in Oklahoma in the last book, security expert Bram Blackstone meets doctor Declan O'Malley. The sparks are instantaneous between the two. When Bram acts on the chemistry, Declan initially responds then pushes Bram away. Upset, Bram goes back to New York and tries to forget about Declan. But now he's decided to return to visit his brother and to maybe see Declan again. This time, Declan thinks he is ready to move past the pain he suffered previously and start a relationship with Bram. They give in to the feelings they have for each other and decide to start a relationship. But then a ghost from Bram's past threatens Declan and now Bram and his friends must find out the truth if Declan and Bram are to have a happy future together. And each much release the pain of their pasts. Review: I had moderately high hopes for this story. With what was foreshadowed about Bram and Declan both having painful pasts, I thought this would be a deeper, more emotional story than some past ones in this series. But for me, it never quite lived up to its potential. The author could have made this a great story about overcoming terrible pasts and delving into the emotional scars of the characters. But I thought everything was treated a little too casually and gotten over too quickly. There was such potential there for a great story but it was all over simplified and worked out too quickly. It took away from the story, for me. But I did like Bram and Declan. They were both good characters and had some great chemistry together. And the storyline was fairly decent, with Bram having to deal with his past and a surprising revelation. Though that whole thing was a bit oversimplified, too. One thing that bothers me somewhat about Lynne's stories, in particular those I've read of this series, is the characterization of the men. I read a comment in another review about how Lynne writes "chicks with dicks" stories. And I totally agree with that. There's a very feminine edge to all these stories. The guys are always using endearments like "baby" and whatnot. They're always carrying their partner(s) around like they're light as feathers, crying at the drop of a pin, acting all cutesy and all that. Now, I'm not saying that's totally incorrect. But when all your male characters are like that, it doesn't come off right. Not all gay men are so effeminate (and not all hetero men are so macho, to be fair). So I just wish there was some more variety in the way the males in this series acted. Overall, and okay story that could have been much more. Which is how I feel about most Carol Lynne stories. This was originally the last in the series, but I see that she's written a new one for a different e-publisher, that basically revisits the cast of characters and deals with a lingering issue. I'm not sure if I'll read that one (I don't yet own it, either). Maybe someday. WARNING, this book contains: explicit sex and language, m/m oral sex, m/m anal sex, m/m HEA, references to m/m rape and violence.

    One thing you can say of Carol Lynne is that she has amazingly original plots for so short stories. Tortured Souls, less than 80 pages, is the story of Bram, a security specialist, former abused child, who falls in love of Declan, a doctor. Declan has lost six years before his partner, a man he met in one of his foster house and which whom he grew together. But when they were barely twenty years old, Scott developed a mental disability due to a brain cancer, and he tortured and raped Declan befor One thing you can say of Carol Lynne is that she has amazingly original plots for so short stories.

But when they were barely twenty years old, Scott developed a mental disability due to a brain cancer, and he tortured and raped Declan before killing himself. So now Declan is veru cautious in his lovers choice. This is the sixth book in the Men in Love series, and when it starts Bram is trying to forget Declan. But he has not much success and so he returns back in Oklahoma and to Declan. But Bram's past is not buried as he thinks. As in all Carol Lynne's books, there is a lot of sex between gorgeous men, and unlikely matches which seem to work wonderfully: around Bram and Declan gravitate not one but not less than two threesome, both working without problems. Only in the Fantasy Land America by Carol Lynne this is possible, but maybe this is also the reason why we like her books. And kudos to her to have a fervid imagination and always come out with new idea. http://elisa-rolle.livejournal.com/23...

The relationship is highly unbelievable and rushed, for the deep of the feelings the writer wants us to believe Bram has for Declan you may think they have been in love for years and years, instead of some months, then the first time they see each other after they first failed attempt at sex, they do have sex this time, and everything bis alright with the world, yeah. Bram character goes form grouchy to very emotional, the dark twin plot was rushed and not treated to it's full potential, and how The relationship is highly unbelievable and rushed, for the deep of the feelings the writer wants us to believe Bram has for Declan you may think they have been in love for years and years, instead of some months, then the first time they see each other after they first failed attempt at sex, they do have sex this time, and everything bis alright with the world, yeah.

    This was the first book in the series where I felt the plot started to get a little interesting. Bram's brother Brier is rehabilitating at the ranch where Declan is a doctor. Bram and Declan have a strong attraction for each other but after Declan denies Bram, Bram goes back to New York. I liked the tension between these two men, and I liked the overall storyline. I think that their "reunion" was a bit rushed, but with the length of the novella, it still flowed okay.

    Vfields Don't touch my happy!

    Carol Lynne baffles me. If she's going to create such heavy situations for her characters she should commit to handling her story with the depth it deserves. (view spoiler)[ There was rape, child abuse, suicide, torture, murder, abduction and tra-la-la all problems are solved in 71 pages. (hide spoiler)] I don't have anything against fluff it can be fun and very enjoyable but this was silly. Carol Lynne baffles me.

    Пока любимая книга в этой серии, несмотря на то, что никаких групповух тут не было)) Чудесная пара, жалко, что я знала заранее, кто украл Деклана. Немного испортило детективную линию, но все равно понравилась книга.

    I'm giving this 3 1/2. I loved Bram - he's a great character, and Declan is really special. I think it was just a little short in length so I didn't get as involved as I would have liked. I look forward to reading about Briar next. :) I'm giving this 3 1/2. I loved Bram - he's a great character, and Declan is really special.
