Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Her Majesty’s Men is the story of two soldiers in the British Forces and of a friendship taking unexpected turns. In the eyes of the Army they are just two mates who are close. But from the revelation of personal secrets, ensuing hatred and aggression, through terror and danger, to loyalty, triumphant strength and courage, grows their own realisation of what they are: comrades first and foremost, but something else too, something more significant.

The two Royal Engineers, Sgt Tom Warren and SSgt Alex Turner, learn to understand the real meaning of loyalty and strength. Their fight for survival cuts through all the discipline and rules, to tie them together in a unique bond of companionship and trust.

A lovely, lovely friendship where the MCs turn into lovers. This is also a plausible and magnificently done "GFY" story as well.

This GFY element is more believable than in any M/M Romance I have read thus far. The author really makes it work. I don't have the struggle with suspension of disbelief as I do with some GFY stories.

This is the story of Alex and Tom, two best mates in the royal engineers of the British military forces and their close bond, one straight, the other gay.

Their loyalty is that type where one comrade and friend endangers his own life to save that of the other. And, this is a beautiful love story.

In many ways, this book has the elements of a military action movie. The story begins with life in on the base, where the pair go through military exercises, hang out and "get pissed" when they aren't on duty.

Soon, we find our MCs in the jungle of enemy territory where a skirmish takes place, there are cool explosions, life-threatening injury, and finally capture of the pair by a band of guerrillas. I won't say what happens next, but it's exciting as only Marquesate with her knowledge of these things can make it.

Recently, I started to read the jointly authored and breathtaking military love story "Special Forces: Soldiers of which Marquesate, the woman responsible for this tale, is joint author. Having read this, I can definitely see her role and influence on the epic, Special Forces. She knows her military stuff and the minds and hearts of soldiers.

Until I started To read SF and completed this story, I believed of myself that nothing could induce me to read any fiction with a military theme. I'm glad that I gave it a try. I'm hooked. But sadly, from what I can determine, Marquesate hasn't published since approximately 2012. Sob! I need more because I will soon "consume" the short supply of stories by this author that are available.
5.0 su 5 stelle I would use the term "touching" only in the literal sense of a fist in your face... I love it! 27 gennaio 2016

I wish I could tell you this was a gentle, touching, romantic epic for the ages. But no... you can't use gentle when most of the book is several shades of wrong, brutal, violent, abusive, and I would use touching only in the literal sense of a fist in your face with a bloody nose and loose tooth. For a gay british military romance though I have to be totally honest and say it all works and works awfully well. Marquesate does not come across as being shocking for the sake of just being shocking or fake in order to setup some abusive gay sex for naughty readers but it still uses of all those similar traits selling the romance despite itself. It feels bad but the characters get something out of it and evolve from there.

It's a must read in my opinion as a rare example of this kind of "over the top" hurtful manly man blood and guts and warts and all sex and romance. Just do not be surprised at how rough and nasty it really is.
5.0 su 5 stelle LOVED. THIS. BOOK! 23 luglio 2014

Marquesate once again does not disappoint me. She is able to weave a powerful tale of companionship, love and sacrifice that is compelling and exciting. What would you do for a fallen commrad? Would you revisit a past torture that left your body ravaged by pain and scar tissue? Would you open the door for the return of nightmares that were barely held at bay as it is? Would you trade your life for theirs? That is the questions that is answered in a heart wrenching read that left me both cheering and crying at the same time.
Loved this book!
4.0 su 5 stelle Strong, Gritty and Unique Story of Two Soldiers 14 ottobre 2012
Di Sophia Rose - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I have come to really anticipate anything I read by this author. The backdrop, the plot, the characters and most of all the 'voice' of the story is something that reels me in easily and completely.

In this story are two tough soldiers who are also best mates. One is a gay man who is infatuated with his friend while his friend doesn't swing that way. Alex was captured and went through horrendous torture that left both his body and his mind scarred to the point that his marriage fell apart and all he has left is his place in the military. Unbeknownst to him, he- scars and all- is the fantasy of his mate, Tom. That is until Alex forces Tom to tell the truth about himself. This revelation has predictable results, but then there is an unpredictable result that opened the door for a whole new relationship between the two men. It is not just the simple 'end of hostilities' over Tom's revelation about being gay because there is still all of the issues that come with Alex's past of being brutally tortured that leave him unable to have a normal relationship with man or woman.

The plot does switch from the turbulence of their newly established and re-formed relationship after their mutual disclosures to the heart-thumping part where a mission went terribly wrong. The result of which changes things yet again.

I guess I am a glutton for punishment I guess because I really find each of Marquesate's stories good reading because the romances are never easy ones nor are they easy to categorize. I also appreciate the conflict that makes things dangerous and exciting. I look forward to reading more from Marquesate who writes from a position of knowledge about the military and the personalities of those who make up the military.

Recommended for those who enjoy a gritty, challenging romance.

4.0 su 5 stelle Emotionally wringing story with incredibly real characters 7 giugno 2009
Di Charly T. Anchor - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 7/10

PROS:
- Great descriptions of rough sex that results from anger/frustration/confusion. I didn't find many of the sex scenes particularly arousing, but I thought they were good--realistic and raw. There is one toward the middle of the book, though, that's...wow...hot.
- The most convincing "straight guy turned gay" story I've ever read. I believed at the end of the story that he wasn't "gay" necessarily and just happened to be in love with a man.
- Very gradual progression and transformation of the relationship.
- Understated ending that I was disappointed with immediately after having read it, but that now, several days later, I find consistent with the rest of the book and for which I admire the author's restraint.

CONS:
- Took me a while to get used to the author's frenetic writing style. (Example: "Never intended to ... never ... hadn't known who he ... sh*. Too late. Load and Fire!" And those ellipses are not mine; they're in the book.) There are almost as many fragments in the book as complete sentences. They're cleverly (and purposefully, I'm sure) done and create a unique rhythm that jives well with the story and setting, but my mind had a terrible time lining up with the cadence of the language and keeping in time with it.
- Long section in the middle of the book that is grueling and horrible. The rest of the story is graphic and intense as well, but there are at least 20 pages (of a book that's not very long) that are so hideously painful that for the first time ever while reading this genre, I had to skim through parts of the story. The last author whose writing impacted me in such a strong, negative way was Steven King. Don't get me wrong: the writing is good throughout. It's just horrifying.

Overall comments: Not an easy read, but different from almost anything else I've encountered in m/m romance. There's some graphic sex and some graphic violence, so if either of those bothers you, this is definitely not a good choice for you.
