Présentation de l'éditeur

What causes a man to risk his career and a marriage of twenty years? What comes into this world with him that steals his thoughts and inspires risks that others can't comprehend? David Westin knows. He knows the power of a man's hand on the arm of another man. He has lain awake at night long enough to realize this haunting need will never allow him to go to his grave wondering what might have been. When the day comes his best friend reveals a lifelong secret, their destiny is uprooted and cast to
the wind.

Together they enter a world of discovery, of elation and joy, of heartache and deception and tears, of physical adventure that neither one could have imagined. Setting themselves apart from the general brotherhood of men, they hear the inner voice that compels them to open a door they can never close. One look inside their soul and you’ll understand why this lawyer and contractor give in to their urges.

Most men would have difficulty talking about this novel, though many, alone in quiet contemplation would feel its effect as deeply as the marrow of their bones. When guided by the chemistry they were born with, they are among those who secretly feel like the fortunate few. They recognize the magic of an intimate bond with
another man.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A well written tale about men who love men 30 juillet 2006
Par James R. Bratcher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
It's not often I'm pulled into a novel I can't put down. This story stayed on my mind from the moment I started until I read the last word. I was pulled into the emotions of the characters and was involved in their daily lives as they ventured further into a secret world of lies and deceit, and very powerful physical attraction. It's a must read for men who feel this attraction to other men, for women who may be involved with them, or anyone who appreciates the many forms of love and human emotion.

David is a contractor. His best friend, James, is also his lawyer. They're happily married and have been best friends for fifteen years. When David, after reaching wits-end with the demons inside, decides to confide in James, he learns his feelings for James are mutual. Their lives are forever changed. After intially resisting the temptation of their mutual attraction, they give in to it, and eventually get involved with three other married men. Over the course of the summer, five successful, masculine, happily married men form a secret life apart from their careers and marriages, all the while trying to convince themselves they can live down the guilt. I kept turning the pages to find out if they really could.

Though I'm a "straight" male, and though I was at odds with David and James when they deceived their wives, I found myself caught up in their feelings for each other. Obviously love can manifest in many forms, and must be expressed. When two men love each other this much, despite their love for a woman and the need for a traditional married life, David and James caused me to recognize the breadth and many facets of the human condition.

I highly recommend Five Married Men for anyone who appreciates thoughtfully written, character driven stories about the power of love. This book had an affect on me. While reflecting on my past relationships with other men, I wondered if somewhere in my subconscious there might have been unrecognized motives. No . . . it was just the book. Let's have more, Mr. Brant.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Graded on the curve 13 février 2007
Par Chad Sosna - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Normally I would give this book 2 stars, even though I dislike giving any up-and-coming gay or bi author a negative review. This one gets "graded on the curve" and gets a slightly better rating because it so deeply takes on the issue of bisexuality and has several scenes where the men discuss the dilemma of loving (and enjoying sex with) their wives, while also desiring other men. In this respect, the book hits that nail right on the head.

It's the story of a married man who confesses his sexual attraction to his best friend, who luckily has mutual feelings (what are the odds?). Eventually they find three others and become a circle of five married men who have occasional orgies. My gripe here is that it was a bit too easy to find these men, and the focus of all their sexual energies is on the youngest guy.

The scenes with these men and their wives are interesting and well-done, and the author did a good job of making all five men and their lives distinct. However, I had some difficulty with the last part of the book, in which the plot--which heretofore had mostly consisted of discussions over meals--evolved into a raucous adventure story with a wild ending. There were a few things that bugged me, too--like the repeated statement of sexual arousal being ignited by "the smell of a man" (what's that? Aqua Velva? Sweat?) and a few misspellings, the main one being "Senior" for "Senor."

It's absolutely worth it to read it if you want to read fiction about bisexuality--because there is so little in existence. And the sex scenes should satisfy even the hardest-core erotic reader.

But I wish a good editor had been involved in the process, for three reasons. 1. To tighten the plot and provide scenic variety (there are only so many times you can endure two characters sitting down to talk over meals). 2. To reduce the wild shifts in viewpoint. 3. To tone down the numerous crazy dramatic occurrences at the end.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Read novel! 2 août 2006
Par Mark Sorensen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Five Married Men is first-rate literary entertainment, and much more. If you are looking for summer reading that grabs your attention, this is it. This novel has believably likable characters, intricate plot development, romance, sex, drama, suspense, humor, and action. There's something for everyone.

More importantly for me, Five Married Men is an honest discussion of male bisexuality. As a bisexual married man who has just recently come out of the closet, I found this book heart-breaking in its accurate portrayal of the challenges that face men like me and their wives. I can't say how much Martin Brant writes from experience, from thorough research, or from an incredible imagination. But I can say, from MY experience, that his fictional characters are as real as the men I've met in support groups, chat groups, and bars. The emotional conflicts, the clandestine meeting arrangements, the fear of discovery that are described in the book are happening all around us every day.

Male bisexuality is marginalized in this country. Today's pop psychologists tell us that there is no such thing as a bisexual man. Even the GLBT community struggles to understand us. It's high time a book like Five Married Men was published. Maybe it will start some discussions that are overdue. Believe me, there are a lot more bisexual men walking around than you can imagine. If we all came out of the closet at once, the whole gay/straight dichotomy would go the way of the dinosaur.

Don't think for a minute that this book is all gloomy and depressing. It is also very provocative. Because Mr. Brant develops the characters so well, the sex scenes are much steamier than typical gay or straight erotica. If the text doesn't turn you on, you'll at least feel empathy for the lovers.

Five Married Men is a novel that reassures bisexual men they are not alone, and educates the rest of society.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Consequences and Broken Taboos 9 janvier 2007
Par K. Peoples - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The author wrote a moving and challenging novel here. Should bisexuals marry? is the question he poses. I wasn't convinced that at least one of the five men involved wasn't actually gay, rather than bisexual, but that's another issue. Marriage in our society involves two, and only two, people making a commitment to be life partners with each other only. A bisexual marrying someone of either sex is denying him/herself the physical and emotional fulfillment of one of the sexes. The implication of this book is that a bisexual person is denying him/herself a basic part of his/her self by making such a commitment. That's a disturbing conclusion not only for the "straight" world but also for the gay one as well. After reading this novel, I can see why gays (and straights) should be leery of entering into a "permanent relationship" with a bisexual, since it may not be possible for a single individual to satisfy his/her sexual and emotional needs.

To be sure, the book is well written, the characters appealing (both the men and their wives, and Tim is sheer dynamite!). Most of the action is credible, though the scenes in Mexico stretch the imagination and credulity more than a little bit. The ending will blow you away. It is not always a fun read; in fact, it is quite disturbing in more than one way, and intentionally so (I think). But if you are looking for a serious treatment of bisexuality and its implictions and possible consequences for all involved, and if you are not afraid to read something serious (rather than escapist), you will not be disappointed in this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thought Provoking!! 9 août 2006
Par R. A Rippy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book will take you to a place that most people do not want to venture into whether a woman or a man and not just married women or men. It will allow you to understand to some degree how your deepest desires when acted upon no matter how much pleasure and peace they give can still cause more pain than you can ever imagine to the ones you love even though you consider it separate from your every day life. This story was well written and will have you questioning who is right and who is wrong in this situation. The question is 'How much are you willing to lose to gain what your body craves after years of denial'? Will it be worth it in the end?

This is another great book written by Martin Brant and more than worth the read. You won't be able to put it down until you read the last page. A very good read for both sexes.
