Family expects by being something he is not Not everything is what it seems as Vinnie and Ethan work to redefine what family means to each of themSometimes the ties that bind are the ones that might just break you The author is donating 10% of the royalties from this book to No Kid Hungry Visit nokidhungryorg for information about this organization. I have to say that there are a lot of things that people will do for the one that they love but what Vinnie did for Ethan went above and beyond what most would do in the situation they was in That definitely says a lot about someoneVinnie and Ethan have been together for five years and things are still great between them Well for the most part anyway Both are doing well in their jobs with the FBI and they are living their little Benny And Vinnie has even found himself indulging Ethan occasionally when Ethan wants him to dress up in drag for him or for their job if it reuires him to do soThe only issue that they have is still after five years Ethan has never introduced Vinnie to his family much less talked about them But that is all about to hange because Ethan gets a phone call from his twin sister Sarah and his mother is in the hospital after suffering a stroke Ethan knows he has to go to her and Vinnie is not about to let him do this alone The problem is his family does not know that Ethan is gay much less in a relationship with Innie and Ethan knows his father the reverend would never accept it Ethan does not want to subject Vinnie to his homophobia that he knows would come if his father or brother knew the truth So Vinnie takes one for the team and decides to go with Rthan anyway but he will make the ultimate sacrifice in name of his love for Ethan and go into the situation to be at Ethan's side dressed as a woman instead of himselfThis book is full of some very emotional issues to say the least There is so much dysfunction in Ethan's family that it will almost make your head spin But what I really loved about this book is Vinnie loves Ethan so much that he was willing to sacrifice who is in order to be there and support Rthan It shows that no matter what Vinnie's love for Ethan is important then anything else I will be honest and say that at first I was kind of upset that Ethan was so willing to let this happen but in the end I understood and was so proud that Ethan proved to love Vinnie just as much as Vinnie loves Ethan Ethan too was willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for the man that he loves and that was so amazing to read aboutThis really was an incredible read and I look forward to in the futureWas given this galley copy for free for an open and honest review Amazon.com: Solaris Internals: Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris Kernel Architecture eBook: Richard McDougall, Jim Mauro: Kindle Store redefine what family means to each of themSometimes the ties that bind are the ones that might just break you The author is donating 10% of the Solaris Internals royalties from this book to No Kid Hungry Visit nokidhungryorg for information about this organization.

    A fun series without about an established couple makes me wonder if there is another book out there where they met maybe they were the secondary characters?Not a lot of angst between them some mystery some drama lots of love and sex Just a great feel good read Each book has it's own story but I recommend reading them in order

    “Family is supposed to be our safe haven Very often it's the place where we find the deepest heartache” Iyanla VanzantVinnie and Ethan from 'Family Ties Family Lies’ by Julie Lynn Hayes have been together for five years becoming domesticated all the time Because of Vinnie's painful past he's never discussed his family with Ethan and Ethan has never brought up details about his family A call from Ethan's twin sister saying that his mother has had a stroke throws Ethan into panic mode He knows he has to go be with her When Vinnie offers to come with him as any good partner would do Ethan tells him he can't Vinnie who tends to worry loves Ethan with all his heart Vinnie wonders if Ethan's family knows about their relationship or if he is Ethan's 'dirty little secret'This turn of events brings up a lot of uestions that need to be answered Family relationships good or bad make up a lot of who people are Not sharing their upbringing has deprived Ethan and Vinnie of knowing each other at a deeper level than they currently do When Ethan explains his family dynamics – with his father an evangelical minister who is an overbearing homophobic bigot Vinnie understands why he's not out to them Ethan apologizes telling him he's doing what he always has done trying to protect Vinnie from his toxic family Then Ethan admits that he's told them about Vinnie but they think his partner at work and life partner is a woman In Vinnie's typical loving fashion he forgives Ethan so much that he offers to go in drag Ethan worries about putting him in such a position but Vinnie's mind is set He's going with Ethan to offer emotional support and if the only way he can go is as a woman so be itWhen they arrive in Georgia Vinnie begins to understand even why Ethan avoids his family With the exception of his twin sister nephew and mother things are even worse than Vinnie could have imagined The surprising thing is that Ethan's father is uite charmed by Lavinia aka Vinnie and congratulates Ethan on his excellent taste in women His brother however is a spineless sarcastic snake in the grass who is bitter and jealous and takes every opportunity to disrespect Ethan as well as Vinnie and his wife seems taken with her father in law than her husband This family takes the cake for being dysfunctional The longer Ethan and Vinnie are there the uncomfortable they become There doesn't seem to be any room for compromise much less truth in the scenarioFamily reconciliation for a dysfunctional family is the optimum goal but that can't always be achieved Sometimes people just have to agree to disagree and be civil Even that is better than open hostility to someone who is blood related to you I think Julie did an excellent job of handling this topic while giving me hope that harmony may be possible Learning once again not to keep secrets from each other brought Ethan and Vinnie closer together and if possible made their love even deeper I love these characters I enjoy their wit charm and their endearing love for each other Anyone who is a fan of the Thorn and Rose series will love his story For those who are new to the series you are missing some thoroughly entertaining stories Thanks Julie for bringing the boys even closer together I can hardly wait to see what they get up to nextNOTE This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews

    Obwohl sie schon so lange zusammen sind wissen Vinnie und Ethan nur wenig über ihre Familien Doch als Ethan die Nachricht bekommt dass seine Mutter erkrankt ist ist es wohl Zeit die Karten auf den Tisch zu legen Und so erfährt Vinnie dass Teile von Ethans Familie ausgesprochen homophob ist und Ethan sich nie geoutet hat Doch Vinnie will seinen Liebsten nicht alleine in die Höhle des Löwen schicken und begleitet EthanAllerdings gibt Vinnie vor die Freundin von Ethan zu sein und inzwischen hat er sich ja zu einem wahren Verkleidungskünstler entwickelt Niemand fällt es auf dass ein Mann in dem Frauenfummel steckt und selbst Ethans Vater scheint in Vinnies Nähe aufzutauen Doch die ganze Situation ist angespannt und in Ethans Familie scheint es viele Probleme zu gebenEthans Familie ist wirklich speziell und mit dem Vater und dem Bruder kann man so gar nichts anfangen Sie sind rüde hart und homophob Kein Wunder dass Ethan seiner Verwandtschaft aus dem Weg geht Gleichzeitig vermittelt die Autorin aber auch seine Unsicherheiten und das völlig verständliche Bedürfnis nach Liebe und Anerkennung Aber das erscheint kaum möglich und sein Vater der ein strenggläubiger Kirchenmann ist erfüllt auch jedes konservative Klischee das man sich nur vorstellen kannDoch Ethan kann sich auf Vinnie verlassen dem es gelingt die Mutter zu verzaubern und sich sofort mit Ethans Zwillingsschwester Sarah anfreundet Vinnie ist sofort im Beschützermodus und immer wieder blitzt sein Temperament durch auch wenn er sich um Ethans Willen zurückhältTeil drei konnte das Level der ersten Bücher locker halten und lässt mich mit einem zufriedenen Lächeln zurück Ethan und Vinnie sind einfach so liebenswert und liebenswürdig Menschlich und auch verletzlich Keine Superhelden aber auch keine schwachen Luschen Diese Geschichte hat etwas mehr Tiefe und gibt nun auch mehr von ihrer Vergangenheit preis Auch Vinnie muss nun Farbe bekennen und seine Geschichte ist wirklich herzzerreissend
