Blurb: On his 19th birthday Kyle Beauchamp gets the surprise of his life—a make out session in the back of the bus. With his wide receiver.

Kevin Beauchamp loves two things, football and Kyle. After a rough game and a discreet blowjob in the back of the bus, Kevin’s life will never be the same. But the love of his life is straight, and off-limits in more ways than one.

When Kyle returns his feelings, Kevin has to decide if a few nights of intense passion is worth destroying their future. He knows one thing—loving his twin might be wrong, but losing Kyle would be like losing the other half of his soul.

Review: Kevin and Kyle Beauchamp, Kev and Ky, are twins that share everything. A strong love for football, and each other. Aside from a couple times in their lives, they’ve always been together and they share a bond that breaks the lines of social acceptability. On the outside, Kevin is gay and Kyle is straight, but on the inside, things aren’t that black and white. They are two halves of the same whole.

One night of bliss on the bus after a game leads to confessions and passions that Kyle never fathomed, and Kevin only dreamed of. They hide their newfound love from everyone around them, or so they think. Little by little, the facade crumbles and as they get more caught up in their emotions. They take risks that eventually land them in very hot water. Friends become allies, mentors become saviours and family becomes the enemy in this brilliant story of forbidden love.

The subject matter of this book, twincest, may be controversial, but the story was so well written. Kev and Ky’s emotions are all over the place and well conveyed to the reader. The love is loud, the passion is perfect and the desperation is disturbing. As the story unfolds Kev and Ky learn that they have more allies than they ever thought possible. And the person that is screaming the loudest, condemning them, is someone they should be able to trust. I loved that even though most people didn’t understand or necessarily agree with the relationship as more than just brothers, most people still stood up for them. Don’t judge that which you don’t understand.

I realize this book won’t be for everyone, but let me assure you, the author did not write some tawdry porn script where a couple of twins just pound each other into oblivion as entertainment for the masses. This is a love story rooted in blurred lines. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope that there is a sequel.

Blurb: In an act of heroism and self-sacrifice, Anderson Rawn’s sister saved him from the destruction of their tiny mining colony, but her actions condemned the thirteen-year-old to ten years of crushing loneliness on the hyperspace journey to a new home. Using electronics and desperation, Anderson creates a family to keep him company, but family isn’t always a blessing.

When Anderson finally arrives, C.J. Poulson greets him with curiosity and awe, because anyone who can survive a holocaust and reinvent holo-science is going to be a legend and right up C.J.’s alley. But the more C.J. investigates how Anderson endured the last ten years, the deeper he is drawn into a truly dangerous fantasy, one that offers the key to Anderson’s salvation—and his destruction.

In spite of his best intentions, C.J. can’t resist the terribly seductive Anderson. Their attraction threatens to destroy them, because the heart of a man who can survive the destruction of his people and retain his sense of self holds a solid core of alpha male that will not be denied.

Review: Anderson Rawn has spent the last ten years trapped inside a spaceship. With his only companionship being the computer generated people, he created to halt his slow dissent into madness. Kate, beautiful and smart. Bobby, the best friend. Henry, the voice of reason initially created as a lover for Anderson. Rissa, the shy and meek. And Alpha. Alpha was created for one purpose, to love Anderson, but somewhere along the way his programming absorbs the self-loathing that Anderson has kept locked inside over the devastation he feels after the loose of his family and planet. Love and compassion turn into anger and abuse.

CJ Poulson is somewhat of a technical genius. He and his sister Cassie under the direction of Cassie’s husband run a successful space station. Although CJ has spent his life surrounded by friends, family and love; he has yet to find someone substantial enough to reach for forever with. He loves his time off planet where he can breathe in the air and enjoy a few naughty indulgences, but he loves his work and his life on the station. When CJ learns about the young man coming their way that has basically redefined the laws of computer programming within the hollow deck over the past decade, he is anxious to meet him.

What they find inside that ship when it lands will rock not only CJ and Cassie, but also Anderson and everyone else that surrounds and supports them. A lifetime of memories salvaged from a planet that was destroyed wrapped up in an almost decade long package of abuse that becomes even more twisted as the truth unravels. The term, Stranger than Fiction comes to mind.

Everything that Anderson has become is wrapped up in the memory of his ship. His own memories while razor sharp, are tainted due to his years of isolation. CJ and Cassie set out to preserve Anderson’s past and hope to help him find a future. The more CJ learns about just how dark it got on that ship between Anderson and Alpha, the deeper his love for Anderson grows. He loves Anderson’s inexperience, innocence, and the way he smiles at him, so seductively. It tears him apart when he watches the vids, witnessing the brutality Anderson endured at the hands of Alpha. But through it all he still see’s Anderson, his perseverance and determination to survive is what CJ falls in love with.

Anderson as well is falling in love with CJ, the reality of him. His taste, smell and touch; all things he could never feel with the computer generated Alpha. Feelings are not something Anderson has ever dealt with well. He grew up on a space ship with only hollow friends and the information stored within the ship to nurture him, to learn from. All he knows is that what he feels for CJ feels real, CJ feels real. But can CJ’s unconditional and unwavering love save Anderson from himself?

The story started out with a bang and became a rollercoaster ride from then on out. Ups and downs, highs and lows, as Anderson’s story unfolds. Imagine being twelve years old and losing EVERYTHING. This is essentially what happens. Stuck on a ship in space utterly alone, Anderson creates friends, companions and eventually lovers to abide the loneliness. Having no adults around as a moral compass, he can only gauge his responses off the history, books and videos contained within the ships memories.

I won’t say the story was action packed or nonstop because, although there was action it wasn’t a constant. There were surely some slow parts here and there, but these were essential to the story. The world Lane built in this book was phenomenal! Her writing coupled with the outstanding narration of Paul Morey make this book a must listen! I was engrossed, enraptured and intrigued from start to finish. The subject matter is a little dark, there is a slight element of BDSM and the emotional turmoil is palpable. But the story is woven and delivered so flawlessly, I was blown away.

Tim is being bullied. No one in high school wants to be known as a tattle-tale and to do so would only make things rougher for him. The repercussions would most likely make him an outcast, and without any friends.

Eric is frustrated with life. His parents are overbearing and if they ever knew the person he really was, they would throw him out of their house. His friends are not much better, they only like him when he is who they expect him to be.

Delsin is gay and ready to come out.  Unfortunately, life at home is on the brink of falling apart with his parents constant fighting. Admitting the truth could bring his whole world crashing down around him.

Each of these three needs to decide whether the risks of being honest about who they are outweighs the importance of being true to themselves. This could mean ruining life as each of them knows it. Maybe it is better to remain miserable in order to play it safe. On the other hand, doing nothing doesn’t seem to work either.
