Always a reader, the lure of m/m romance was strong and she devoured hundreds of wonderful m/m romance books before eventually realising she had some stories of her own that needed to be told!

When not writing or reading, she loves to spend time with her family–an understanding husband and two beautiful daughters–and is often found indulging in her love of cooking and planning her dream home in the country.

Soulmate (Sin #1) by Kol Anderson

Soulmate - Kol Anderson

The Blurb...(From Goodreads)


There's a very fine line between love and sin. The Mason family has a secret. Hunter and Kayden grew up trying to cover that secret and trying to find a way to deal with it, but all they've received in return is misery. When Hunter brings home a girl that looks like she's going to be staying a while, Kayden begins to find that hard to deal with. WARNINGS: ABUSE, NON-CON, DUB-CON, RAPE, INCEST


The Blurb....(from Amazon)


Kayden hasn't had the most perfect childhood. Now that he's a grown man he's still trying to find himself. Add to that the fact that he's having trouble adjusting to changes. When he finds Jacob, it seems like a match made in heaven, but life has other plans


So what did I think?


This is a fairly intense story of the relationship between Kayden and Hunter. The men are brothers who have survived a traumatic and abusive upbringing with Hunter taking care of and protecting his younger brother Kayden.


Kayden does have a relationship with Jacob but I found the relationship between Kayden and his brother and their history, to be more the focus of the book.


Jealousy over Hunter's girlfriend moving in pushes Kayden to confront the feelings he has towards his brother. He battles his jealousy and the attraction he feels towards Hunter. The story is filled with sorrow and pain. The delicate emotional state and confusion of both men is clear.


The ending is not what I expected and I'm not sure if I even got a sense of a possible happy ending. Will they be happy? Who knows? But I definitely want to read the next installment in the story to find out what happens next.


I also noted the blurb is different on Amazon than it is on Goodreads. The Amazon blurb is really short and doesn't really mention Hunter which seemed rather interesting. Not sure why the difference.
