    1 thought on “His Brother's Keeper”

    1. This for me has been one of the most realistically written stories I’ve read in a long time. I felt a connection with each character, their emotions and thought process felt very real to me.Teddy is 15 and still trying to find himself while others around him assume they know him. He is a child with deep rooted fears and the understandable need to be loved by his parent. Jess is the older brother who on the surface seems a bit care free and self centred, but as we get to know him we see that he [...]

    2. I have thought about this book for the last couple of weeks in relation to how I can review it. I am having trouble with putting it into words. Enjoyable is the wrong term as the story is dripping with pain and strife. Ali does a fantastic job of making you feel everything the characters are going through, without using a ton of words or explanation - you just know. If I could describe this book in one word, I would say 'real'. The hell that these 3 go through to get out relatively together at t [...]

    3. 3.5 starsJess and Sal have been living together for six months when Teddy, Jess's younger brother, comes into their lives. Running away from a difficult home life he ends up living with Jess and Sal, a policeman. Now the lovers must adjust to having a teenager in their lives. Teddy's been through a lot and just when he's beginning to find his way a visit from his past leaves him injured and Sal in trouble. When they should be pulling together to help Teddy things go from bad to worse and the new [...]

    4. This book felt real. I am not familiar with the legal procedures and the social service issues in the United States with child abuse, but how the events of the book developed seemed plausible.Sal and Jess are a solid couple. It's clear that they love and support each other. Sal is incredibly understanding and he welcomes - reluctantly at the beginning - his lover's brother into his life trying to control a situation that could be explosive. He is my favorite character in the book, because he was [...]

    5. I loved this book. I picked up this book after reading a review at michelenjeff. They certainly didn't steer me wrong. This was a good book. It's well written and has strong, believable characters. I'm usually leery of this type of story because of stereo types, the tendency to over dramatize the situation. However Ali managed to avoid any of that. I was most worried about Teddy's character, but if you can read this book and come away unaffected by his story, you have a heart of stone. Sal and J [...]

    6. I enjoyed this book. It took on some serious issues like child abuse and teen suicide and handled them well. The social services was enough to get your blood boiling. Sal and Jess were a very sweet couple. Sal was a wonderful guy taking on all that he did without question.

    7. His Brother’s Keeper by Ali Katz is one of those stories that linger on long past the time you’ve read the last words. Part of it is the subject matter, but a bigger part is the depth of the characters and their come-to-life personalities. Dear heaven, Sal and Jess are wonderful, both individually and as a couple. The love that they share, the still-new excitement of their being together rolls off the pages and leave me somewhat envious… I remember those days!Then Teddy is brought into the [...]

    8. I did enjoy this book. Sal was a wonderful character, more loving than one would expect given his career. Jess was a bit more shallow and flighty but rounded out the couple well. (Checks and balances.) Teddy seemed so strong but was so broken and twisted by his past. The book really does revolve around Teddy and his effects on the main couple's lives. The overall story was very dramatic, it dealt with some hard issues and didn't shy away from them. I did think the story was a bit one sided and m [...]

    9. Not quite 4 stars.This book was better than I expected since this is the first time reading this author. It touched on a lot of darker topics, so if you want light and fluffy you will not get that here. Sam is a policeman in a relationship and living with his partner, Jesse (not cop partner, lover-partner). Jesse reaches out to his brother, Teddy, who has run away from their abusive father. Okay, this whole book was a headcase. Teddy had so many issues that it was nearly impossible to relate to [...]

    10. So this story has a lot of the elements I normally love but for some reason I just wasn't drawn into it. I couldn't see the connection between Sal and Jess. Another thing that really bothered me was how Sal had pet names for Teddy even though the story didn't really build them up to that level of bonding. They came off as creepy rather than endearing. Overall, just an ok story for me.

    11. I loved this book. When I read it, I felt an immediate connection to all three of the main characters. Ali's ability to infuse her book with real life problems, strong erotic romance, and believable characters who have depth was awesome. I read the book very quickly cause I couldn't put it down

    12. Ali Katz story of love amid turmoil is beautifully written. This book captures the emotions of all three of the main characters. I loved it!

    13. 3.5 STARSI am not sure where to start with this book. I want to start off by saying that it's not a bad book, but it't not great either. The characters are somewhat likeable. Sal is great! He grabs you from the beginning. He is very thoughtful about others and gives 100% of his heart. Jess He drove me nuts. I understand that he wants to be there for his brother, but he did a lot of pushing away to his lover in the process. Jess just didn't seem mature enough throughout the book to be dealing wi [...]

    14. This must be my weekend for reading tear-jerkers. I enjoyed this story about established couple Sal and Jess and the struggles they encounter after taking in Jess's abused, teenage brother Teddy. The author makes a good point about making assumptions and stereotypes at the end of the story. I won't say more about that because I don't want to give away any spoilers.Also, I do feel the need to point out that some of my friends may find the descriptions of Teddy's abuse and its aftermath upsetting. [...]

    15. This was one of Loose Id's Hot Hooks winners. I haven't read the final but read the submission and liked it very much. Some funny stuff, but still a serious subject about maintaining a relationship while dealing with a troubled teen and child abuse. Well handled, IMO.

    16. This was an ok book, I had to check to make sure there wasn't an earlier book explaining Sal and Jess's relationship. The brother story was fine, but not enough introductions to the main couple and their history together.

    17. I thought this book was okay. I thought Sal was a great character, strong and very loving. Jess I'm just not sure about, he came off very whiny and selfish to me. Teddy was a very confused but sweet boy, I love that Sal fell in love with him as if he were his own son. Strong and powerful writing.

    18. Simply put, this book is a "must" read.In a world constantly changing, "His Brother's Keeper" serves to remind us the one thing that should never change is . . . family.

    19. This is one of those books that's not quite 3 stars, but deserves more than 2. It was good but too many little things bothered me.

    20. I loved the three main characters, but what really puts this book on top imo is the realistic portrayal of the difficult situation they find themselves in.

    21. Some powerful emotions and great build of tension in this story. Strong characters and writing. Sensitive treatment of domestic abuse.

    22. I don't like it when the rent boy ends up not being gay. It happened in Queer as folk, and it happens here.
