Lost Brothers: The Lost Brothers Series by S. Legend

Ahead of book 3's release, Jacquie decided to tackle The Lost Brothers Series on her kindle, starting with book 1, Lost Brothers.

From the blurb:

Can coping mechanisms piece you back together and keep you whole?

The Randall brothers escaped their father, but not the trauma haunting them deep into their marrow. No matter how agonizing, their coping mechanisms are how they survived. Unwilling to relinquish them, they let the world move around them rather than moving to suit the world.

They are the enchained, the abandoned, and the unloved. The family they built through strife is all they need.

Julius Vincenzo, famous ballet dancer, moves to town after a horrific assault ends his ballet career.

Wyatt Reeves wanted to hide from everyone after the cutthroat life as a marine spit him out.

When these men collide with the Randalls and disrupt the fragile balance of the house, old wounds bleed to the surface and spill out raw.

“Nothing buried stays buried and comes to life as a molting parrot zombie to suck out your brains—or something like that,” Darius said—yeah, he said that.

Love is claustrophobic. Love is responsible. Love binds us whether we like it or not.

But it’s also the only thing that means anything.

Is healing real? Or is it another socially constructed illusion? If it’s all an illusion anyway, maybe it’s best we manufacture our own.

Lost Brothers is a dark LGBTQ+ romance trilogy featuring age-gap, second chances, brother bonds, found family, a sizzling dancer duo, a taciturn marine man, and the special love and care dynamics that Mock is known for.

Jacquie's Review:

Intense, complicated, challenging, but also entertaining. There are a lot of words to describe Lost Brothers. None of them really catch what I mean. This book was an experience.

I feel like I really got to know the characters in this. There's a lot of pov changing, so I got to see most of the sides. I think the only characters we don't get pov's for are Lakshan and Shane, but strangely, I felt like they were given voices through Silas and Simon.

The Randalls are complicated, Kinky, and also loving. Be aware of the trigger warnings. There are more than a few complex situations for them to navigate as a family.

It's going to be hard to read the 2nd book with their dad. For that book we are heading into the past before, I assume, we get back to their present for book 3.

I am hooked on these characters.
