About the Author
Lynn Kelling began writing in order to tell stories that weren’t afraid of the dark, didn’t hold anything back and always strived to be memorable, forging lasting attachments between character and reader. Her inspiration comes from taking a closer look at behaviors and ideas lurking at the fringes of life—basically anything that people may hesitate to speak of in mixed company, but everyone wonders about anyway. Her work is driven by the taboo in order to expose the humanity within it. Lynn is an artist, designer and lover of any form of creative self-expression that comes from a place of honesty and emotion, whether it's body art or opera. She has had multiple novels published, has written over fifty works of erotic fiction of varying lengths, and always has several novels in progress.

Both Evan and Brennan have issues that affect them profoundly. Both boys knew something was missing, not definitively, but at a soul-deep level, particularly Evan. As the book progresses they are starting to feel more whole, but in the beginning they seemed poles apart.
"So you're a gay vegetarian with nice clothes and nice furniture who does naked yoga and s***."
"And your an uber-macho tough guy that smokes, drinks, loves guns and kills his own food."
"Yeah, that about sums it up," Evan sighed, nodding. "We really have nothing in common, do we?"
"Well we both have blue eyes and freckles," Brennan pointed out.'
Evan has psychological issues, mostly around bullying from his earlier days at school, but a depression continues to surround him. Brennan is grieving the loss of his mother, their mother, after being her carer for a number of years through cancer until her death.
As the book progresses their relationship builds. As does their relationship with another set of identical twins, the Popovic brothers. Alek and Luka.
My Brother's Lover is well named. As I said before, it's sexy but it will not be for everyone. Me? I liked it a whole lot. On to book 2, Twin Affairs, in the series now.

Twins? Heck yeah. Two sets, even better. I loved that each had their own personality and how they were so extremely different in every way. I even liked that they could be so open to everything between them.
This is told from all four points of view, and the author did a very good job of that.
But, BUT, this book read somewhat cold. The characters rather two dimensional, and things felt tossed together at times. It was as if the author couldn't quite find a story so droned on about the same few issues over and over, then threw in sex to hold the plot together. There are even a few instances where the author got lost in her own scenes, and you find yourself saying; wait, how did he get there when...wait, hold on, that's not right. Wasn't so and so holding him this way a moment ago?
I'm also not a fan of running sentences, and the ones in this book get so severely lost not even Garmin could find them. The first third it was so bad I was constantly having to recalculate, but even that didn't help at times and I just skipped over them. That being said, I am the queen of tight writing (I even have an award for it), and may be bias.
Last and final rant. This is insta-love at its most severe. We are talking less than a week on both couples.
Will I read the next book in the series? Probably, because once Bren quit crying I really liked him, and how honest he was with himself. I'm also curious if the second book brings more plot to the table. I really wanted to know more about these four.
The only thing that I had difficulty with while reading was the names of the pairs of twins - for me, the names were just a little too similar and it got a little confusing remembering who was who at times.
The twincest element is also interesting in how very different it is for each of the couples.
Evan and Brennan are identical twins who didn't know the other existed until recently. They are both hurt and grieving and alone. Although they have felt that part of themselves has been missing (for Evan this had traumatic repercussions), they have no history together, no 'brotherly' experience to base their new relationship on.
Alek and Luka are also twins who have had a tough upbringing which saw them spiral out of control. It is during these darkest days that their relationship changes. They feel a tremendous guilt that accompanies the love they have for each other.
This book is about sex but it also about love. The brother's loving each other but the couples - Evan & Alek and Brennan & Luka - sharing an obvious deep love too.
The main focus is on the two sets of twins but there are also a few other characters that make an appearance and really add to the story.
