    Great interactions between the brothers Tyler and Ryan, but everything else was rushed. I really need for the development of the plot and maturation of the relationship between the two to enjoy it more. That said, I felt the tension and love between Ryan and Tyler.

    This is the first brothercest story I've read and actually not liked. The other stories about brothers falling in love have had enough background that it makes sense why they feel the way they do. This story felt too rushed, I didn't feel like I got to know either character very well, and instead of leaving me feeling happy that they got their HEA in spite of the taboo, it left me feeling uncomfortable.

    It's not a bad story per se. But it's so ridiculously underdeveloped and simply written, with a plot that is just the bare bones of the first chapter of a children's book and character depth and relationship development equivalent to those of a cardboard cutout of Brangelina, that it had me dragging myself all the way through it just because I only had 10... 5... 2 pages left.Also: brocest - thumbs up; gymnastics - thumbs down.

    Don't get me wrong, the rating it's not low because of the incest/brocest, but 'cause for me the story was... unfinished. It was too short to give a higher rating, and I feel a bit disappointed by the abrupt ending. =w=

    LHNB Story released 3.8.13The two MCs in this short story are brothers - which I know will automatically hit some peoples "no way" buttons when it comes to reading it. The younger brother and talented gymnast, Ryan, narrates the story of how his older brother, Tyler, has always looked after him, from rescuing him from their abusive father, through foster care, and then looking after him. Ryan has felt more than brotherly love for Tyler for several years, of which Tyler is aware but has never encouraged him but when Ryan is involved in an accident the relationship between them changes. This is is a well written story with an up in the air ending as it finishes at the potential start of a more than just brothers relationship between the two MCs.

    I must admit, I have a weakness for incest/twincest/brocest. Dunno why, don't care to know why. If it's written well, it makes me happy. If it's not written well, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. This was written well. I enjoyed it. I want more of it, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

    (view spoiler)[ this is a brocest story with a very HFN ending, probably because it's very short and we only see Ryan's POV. I would have loved it had it been a little longer and I could have seen Tyler's inner struggle with his own feelings. (hide spoiler)]

    The Meet was written for the M/M Romance Group's Love Has No Boundaries picture prompt event. Told in first person through Ryan's eyes the younger of the two brothers.(view spoiler)[Ryan is a gymnast in high school and Tyler is his older brother. They live together in an apartment while Tyler works and Ryan goes to school and practices gymnastics. The story goes into the background of what lead up to them living on their own and why they develop feelings for each other.This is a quick, easy read about brocest/incest, with nothing graphic other then a kiss happening. The only thing I didn't like about this story was the overuse of exclamation points. I'm an exclamation point nazi and I noticed every time they cropped up. Other than that, it's a cute read and I give it 3 stars (hide spoiler)]

    This is a free story written as part of the Romance without boundaries event. This is where writers of M/m romance were asked to select a photo and writing prompt supplied by a fan of the genre and write an original tale.This story is quite short and a bit controversial. It features two brothers who are in love with each other. For all that, it is written in a sweet way and there is no actual sex, just a hint that it will happen on future day.Part of me is glad for this and part of me was secretly hoping for something more forbidden.

    I don't mind brocest at all; that is not a factor in my rating. For me this story was a lot of "tell" rather than "show." I felt like the author spelled everything out - both in the character development and in the plot - instead of letting me fill in some of the blanks for myself. I find this writing style to be rigid and boring, as it doesn't take any processing skills. I believe that while the author had a very workable plot, the execution was done poorly, which is disappointing.

    1 star plus one for being free - The only reason I read this book was because it was part of LHNB Vol 3 Anthology. I am so not into incest/brocest that this is the first I have actually read. As a first piece I am thankful the writing wasn't all that good because I never felt apart of the story; when the kiss came it didn't bother me - I wasn't invested. It was a lot of telling and very little showing. It felt rushed and un detailed.

    Eeeewww! Be warned! If you, like me, find even possible incest between brothers totally yucky – stay away from this one! There wasn't any hot sex or anything like that, but it was still out of my comfort zone.Note: I automatically add an extra star to M/M Romance Group Free Read stories, since I'm greatful to the authors who share their work with us this way.

    WARNING- INCEST - BROTHERSI feel like I just ran a sprint. This was extremely rushed and I think I was hit by a car at the end. It must have been because I don't remember anything that remotely resembled even a slight wrap up of the story. Actually, it felt like that's where it should have began.JMHO.

    the writing was really good and the tension between tyler and Ryan was captivating , if only they weren't brothers then I would really enjoyed the story, thank god there was no sex scene in the story because that would be just really disgusting, I am sorry but I can't tolerate incest of any kind because it is just wrong , I wish you wrote them unrelated then I would definitely love them.

    So I was really excited to see a brocest story, but unfortunately, this one ended up not being anything super special :(It was a bit teasing, and I found it repetitive in some parts. The excessive exclamation points also drew me out of the story. Overall, not bad, but not something I'm sure I'll remember a month down the road.

    Dammit! We almost got brocest sex. More!!! A gymnast and his brother hiding their feelings from each other...then a kiss. Awww.**I'm much more lenient on our free stories because the authors were kind enough to share with us.

    Supernatural has pretty much ruined me, and I'm all for the brocest now! haha. This was great, I liked the tension between them and could definitely read more about these two. Thanks for a great story!

    Brocest isn't my cuppa, but the story is well-written.Thank you for the story. :-)[NOTE: I rate most writing event stories (free reads) 4 or 5 stars because of my appreciation of the author's participation.]

    Really did not like the father. I did like Tyler and Ryan. Just when it was starting to get good, then it ended.... for now? O.O Would love to see more of them.

    I'm all for incest and if one of them was traumatized/abuse it turns me on so much more (i'm weird, deal with it) I like this story but a few parts dissatisfied me quite a lot...

    Interesting brocest story. The story seems a little rushed though. I wanted to see more of the development between the two characters.
