Présentation de l'éditeur

2nd Edition

When Ethan Williams lands a job at Bingwell, Brock and Bacon, he realizes his coworkers aren’t exaggerating about James Trenchard. He really is a dick. But after Ethan is forced to work closely with James, he realizes there’s more to the lawyer than meets the eye.

Vibrant Ethan is a desperate reason to live again as James endures silent guilt and abuse from his husband after an accident. He calls Ethan for help after a beating, and stolen moments soon become the norm, but they can’t hide forever.

Ethan’s coworkers think he got his promotion because James is sweet on him, James is still being beaten despite his family’s concern, and the situation is swiftly becoming intolerable. Ethan and James need to find a way out of the cycle that’s hurting them both before their brand new love suffers as well.

1st Edition published by Noble Romance Publishing, December 2011.

Ethan Williams is one of the newest junior team members in the advertising firm of Bingwell, Brock and Bacon. And already, he's heard about the infamous James Trenchard. The man must be a horrible person, judging from the amount of fascinated gossip flying around about him. And he's not even a partner - just an attorney. Well, lead attorney.

So when Mr. Trenchard starts flirting with him in his first staff meeting, what's a guy to do? Fight back of course, and let the man know he's nobody's fool. Except he can't really control his body's reaction to the man.

When he's forced to work a late night project with his boss and James, he gets a totally new perspective on the man. How firmly capable he is. Somehow, he comes to respect him. Which totally baffles him when James calls Ethan in the middle of the night to help him when he's drunk and injured.

What Ethan discovers, however, blows his mind. This strong, intelligent and powerful man is being abused. And allowing it to not only happen, but to continue.

As his feelings for the man continue to grow, Ethan finds himself in a quandary. Whether to let his feeling grow for a man who is involved with someone else, or stop? To fight his protective nature, or let James continue to suffer the abuse? And will James ever wise up and leave his abuser?

Sue Brown is known for taking on the difficult topics and delivering powerful and insightful stories around them. And she delivers one more time. This is an unflinching look at domestic abuse and the consequences not only for the abused but for the friends and loved ones involved. It's strikingly straightforward and unapologetic, and coldly powerful in its message.

Ethan is a love - strong, compassionate, fiercely loyal, yet so very vulnerable and honorable. He guards his heart, but is moved to give it away. Protective, he makes the perfect partner.

James, such a dear man. So many wonderful qualities - loyalty, deep and abiding love, passion. But wired so very very wrongly. He makes the reader want to shake him, then hug the stuffing out of him.

I've seen how horrible domestic abuse can be. My sister was a victim when I was a young man, and I could never accept how she could not only stay, but accept some responsibility for what happened. And defend my brother-in-law. I still shake my head, but having grown older and hopefully a little wiser, I understand the misguided sense of love and hopelessness that comes with it.

Hopefully, this work will do what some of us cannot - get through to some of those persons, men and women, who live with this horror and empower them to leave.

This is when writing makes a difference - when it touches lives. It certainly touches mine.

HASH(0x8bfc0558) étoiles sur 5 Heartwarmingly Gentle Love Story 15 janvier 2012
Par J2 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I love Sue Brown - there - I've said it. It's out there and I don't want to take it back. I have yet to read anything of hers that has left me feeling short-changed and when I picked up Final Admission, she didn't let me down.

The Queen of Angst strikes again in a poignant love story revolving around a devastatingly all too common situation, but one that is hardly ever mentioned. Ms Brown handles it with flair and aplomb and the utmost sensitivity.

Meeting Ethan gives James a reason to want to live again. To love again. And the gentle way this big, muscled, mountain of a man soothes James' tired and empty heart, makes your own heart skip a beat and wish he was yours.

I loved every word and could not put it down from start to finish, and will be adding it to my list of Sue Brown favourites and eagerly awaiting what she has in store for us next.

HASH(0x8bfc0990) étoiles sur 5 compelling story about an important and difficult topic 7 mars 2014
Par PrismBookAlliance - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Sue Brown’s Final Admission is the story of James, an independently wealthy, gorgeous, influential attorney who suffers relentless physical domestic abuse at the hands of his husband, Clay, another attorney who was left brain damaged and hostile following an auto accident. Despite acknowledging the abuse to his overly supportive cousin, and to Ethan, an executive at the company where they both work with whom he begins an affair and falls in love, James steadfastly refuses to end his marriage to Clay until after he is almost beaten to death.
A simple internet search reveals that domestic abuse within gay relationships is a very serious issue that is more prevalent than most think. According to a 2010 study by the CDC of victimization by sexual orientation, 40% of gay men report having had a violent partner at some point, as compared to 21% of heterosexual men. Many of these men find it painfully difficult to end their abusive relationships due to fear, economic concerns, truly loving their abusive partner, not wanting their abuser to “get in trouble,” less than supportive law enforcement, or worrying others will perceive them as weak. In Final Admission, despite great wealth, influence, unbelievable support from his cousin and Ethan, as well as knowing that Clay has truly changed into a mean, violent man, James argues he can’t end his marriage because he still loves the man Clay was before the accident and clings to the hope that he will get better and the abuse will stop.
I admire Sue Brown for tackling the difficult subject of domestic abuse within gay relationships. Even when I was uncomfortable with what I was reading, I couldn’t put Final Admission down – which, in itself, is an endorsement of the book. I did, however, have some issues with the story. As I’ve explained earlier, there is cheating between James and Ethan included in Final Admission. I freely tell you that cheating is a story element that I do not usually enjoy. However, it isn’t the cheating between James and Ethan that bothers me – I suppose I feel that Clay’s abuse of James violated the sanctity of their marriage long before Ethan ever entered the picture. Instead, the cheating that is a total turn off for me occurs near the end of book, and is also a bothersome deviation from the established characterization of Ethan. A broken and wounded James tells Ethan that he’s finally ending his marriage to Clay, and that James will need to go away for intensive rehabilitation for six months to recover from his injuries (both physical and psychological). The men profess their love for each other, agree that they have “no promises, no expectations,” and that they will reunite for one week when James is recovered and see how their relationship develops from there. In a development that I think is totally out of left field, Ethan takes this as a license to freely get busy with several other men while James convalesces. I was equally bugged that Ethan, who has stuck by James through all of the heartache and worry while he remained with Clay, just allows James go heal alone when they are at last free to be together. In my opinion, both of these plot developments are not in keeping with Ethan’s character, and particularly violate the love and devotion that Ethan demonstrates for James throughout their relationship.
Overall, I do think that Final Admission is a compelling story about an important and difficult topic that I recommend you read. Also, the full CDC study referenced above can be found at the following link: [...]

HASH(0x8bfc0d44) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful story but hard to read.... 6 mars 2014

James is an ass. A big, bad lawyer with a huge ship on his shoulder. And a dark secret he tries to hide. Ethan, new to his job, meets the ass side of James first. He is not impressed. Maybe attracted, but certainly not impressed. They are shoved together at work, by Leanne, who is Ethan’s boss and James very protective cousin. Ethan learns that there is more to James than meets the eye. He is a brilliant lawyer, and a very intellent man. Then James is “mugged” and calls Ethan for help. As Ethan helps James recover from his injuries, getting farther in to the story, Ethan learns James secret and is shocked. To see the strong, stubborn man he knows, in such a vulnerable situation is hard for him to accept. A relationship slowly develops between the two men, but it’s a difficult one at best. James is stubborn and Ethan is frustrated.

The characters are all well written, Ethan and James, Leanne and Howard, and Ethan’s coworkers. And Clay…. Poor Clay. He really isn’t in this story much, other than as the abuser. I just hated him, no sympathy, no understanding. He plays the part of the “bad guy” well. The sex between James and Ethan is hot and meaningful, there is a deep physical connection between the two men. Sometimes it’s emotional, but it’s tainted by Ethan’s frustration and James’ stubborn loyalty. The office politics are interesting and seem accurate, there is mistrust and assumptions on Ethan’s coworkers part. And more frustration for Ethan. He seems overwhelmed most of the time, between work and getting dragged in to James’ messed up life. Sometimes I wanted him to just walk away.

I read this book a couple of years ago, I remembered it as I was reading this re-released edition. It made me uncomfortable then and it still does. Which honestly isn’t a bad thing. This book is about the violation of trust, trust in a marriage, trust that you won’t be hurt by your loved one. I have never been abused, I have utmost trust in my husband. I personally have no concept of this kind of abuse. I found myself not having much sympathy for James, nothing but frustration. I do not understand him staying in this situation. I don’t get it… I want to understand but I don’t. So I’ve been challenged by this book. Challenged to accept the decisions of a character in a situation I can’t imagine myself in. In the decisions of the new man in his life who wants to help him, but is having a hard time getting through. I’d be so frustrated and probably give up, I’m ashamed to say…

This is a difficult story to read. It is well written, and I liked the characters, but I had a very hard time accepting what they did. Or didn’t do as the case may be. I don’t understand James and why he would stay in the relationship he is in. I don’t understand Ethan either. I was angry at Leanne and the rest of the family for ignoring this problem. I found my personal perception affecting my enjoyment of this book. It’s also a story about survival and love. James does survive, and does find love. (Big secret here, it has a happy ending! Shh… don’t tell anyone I gave it away!)

Sue has written a very good story which includes a difficult storyline. This proves to me that I can like an author, like the writing, like the character, and like the story, but have a hard time with it. Yet still like the book overall and give it a rating based on that.

Everything moved along at a good pace. I never felt like anything was rushed or unexplained. All of the characters were well fleshed out, even Clay. Even though he was the bad guy, we knew what happened to make him that way (not that it excused it in anyway). James and Ethan were very well developed and you could see them both struggle with the situation they found themselves in. Leann and Howard were great supporting characters. This is only the second book I have read from Sue Brown and I like her writing style. The story flowed well and I knew what was going on at all times.

This story was a pleasure to read. Sue took on a difficult subject (especially for a romance) and acquitted herself amazingly well. I was uncomfortable at first that her two main characters were engaging in an affair while one of them was still married... but she wrote the story with such depth of compassion and unwavering honesty that by the end I was enraptured by their journey. Well, done to Sue, and thank you for the opportunity to read this fine work. :)
