    4.5--This Was a Good One Y'all--Stars!!!Loved the writing.Loved the banter.Loved Tyler.Loved Ben 90% of the timeere was just that one time. You know the one, in NY with David in the bathroom.Loved the brothersey wereI even loved Colin.Could of done without Ben's little fetish.And I could of done with more bossy Ben.All in all it was virtually.

    Don't let the blurb scare you!!Because when I first skimmed it, I was foreseeing something horribly sad and depressing. Okay, I admit it was sad, but there was also a lot of humor and happiness and very little angst. I swearI only cried once.This was a wonderful heart warming story about Ben, a 27 year old big shot NYC attorney, and how he struggles to find his "forward mementum" following the tragic deaths of both his parents. Ben is suddenly thrust into the role of guardian over his 3 teenage [...]

    3,8 Stars - a super cute family story about brotherhood, grief and to find the one and onlyMaybe not epic and unforgettable but not trivial and fast forgotten. Good topic, well written and charmingly enjoyable to read.~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~‘Somethimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero’a fitting quote written by the author Marc Brown and mentioned in this story~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~Very, very fitting, because The Nothingness of Ben is a very n [...]

    This book has some of the best conversations I've read in M/M. Perhaps because of the author's theater background, there is a naturalness and a rhythm that is very comfortable to read and makes the characters come alive. The teens, particularly the oldest brother, Quentin, are a bit precocious, but the author manages to bring it off and the interactions of Ben with his brothers are definitely a highlight of the book. There is a middle section where I wish the author would have spent a bit more t [...]

    Oh this bookis book. I am not good with reviews and since I am still wiping the tears from Quentin's Thanksgiving day toast, this is going to be disjointed and incoherent. Nikyta said yesterday 'read this'. I was thinking sure sure, whatever.e was right. The story opens with Ben, a big hot shot New York lawyer with very well connected friends and what happens when tragedy strikes his family back in Austin, Texas. We are then treated to a one year journey of 4 brothers and a cast of secondary cha [...]

    I guess this is where Tina will say to me, "see, I told you so" :)Truthfully, it wasn't a smooth read all the way. I did put it down twice, marked it as "postponed-for-now" book. I wasn't in the right mood; was immersing with some paranormal/urban fantasy books, that reading something simply contemporary wasn't going to do it. But after few titles failed to keep my interest, I decided to go back. and boy, did I enjoy this so much. Gobbling it up as my morning read; finished it at 5 AM.Let me te [...]

    I liked how this was woven. The story in this romance was in many ways better than the romance itself which is a pretty darn good friends to lovers story. I'm not usually a fan of stories based around kids either, but kinda hard not to love the Walsh clan. Truth is the story is all about Ben. His choices make all the difference in 4 lives: his 3 younger brothers and Travis. The strength of this story was the characterization. Boney nailed making each one individual and interesting enough to want [...]

    Comfort BR with Meags!4.5 StarsI don't know if I'm on the rebound from my most recent let down of a read, but I don't care. I pretty much loved this book.Sure there were some things that niggled or bothered me, but overall this was a great story about family and love.What stands out for me the most was the dialogue. The banter The quick wit The flirting The arguingAnd I'm not necessarily just talking about the push/pull of the MC's. Everyone had their piece to say on a variety of topics and it w [...]

    This book has been around the block for a while so I won't go into a long drawn out review but I will say this book is-Amazing chemistry between the two main characters ✔Humor ✔Great dialogue ✔Steam ✔Angst ✔Great cast of secondary characters ✔And at the end you'll be left with a smile! 5 Stars! Even though this book wasn't published this year- it's still going on my Best of 2014 List. Do yourself a favor and-

    The Nothingness of Ben was a decent story about a successful lawyer from New York City who comes home to take care of his three brothers after his parents death. Ben, significantly older than his siblings, struggles to connect with them and learn how to be a guardian all while readjusting to life in Texas. He struggles with his old relationships, friends and the man he was dating, while discovering a new life in Texas.Overall it's a sweet story with some trials and tribulations. The author at ti [...]

    Well. This was absolutely lovely. Ben is an up and coming lawyer in NYC transplanted from Texas. He has a great job, a shiny new boyfriend and endless prospects. This all ends with a phone call telling him that his parents have died in a car accident as his three younger brothers need him at home. Honestly when this book starts out Ben is a not the best of men. He's selfish and he's a dick in more ways than one. He does go home and he does attempt to be a brother to his brothers he left behind a [...]

    I absolutely adored this book. It is a 5 star read, no doubt about it. But after mulling it over, trying to decide how to review it and what exactly I want to say about it, I have come to the conclusion that while I loved the book, I just am not able to give MC Ben my stamp of approval. Thinking back to my other reviews, that would normally cause me to rate a book lower, but with how much I liked this book, I couldn't do that. So, great book, heartbreaking story, loved MC Travis and the supporti [...]

    **1/6/17 - Re-read via Audiobook. I LOVED this book the first time I read it! Figured it was time to revisit. -----------------------------------------------***5 Muddy Waters Stars***"We can believe in the nothingness of life, we can believe in the nothingness of death and of life after death - but who can believe in the nothingness of Ben?"This book is everything that I love about reading. I went through every emotion possible and loved every second of it!Ben Walsh was born in Austin, Texas but [...]

    This book for me was absolutely wonderful. I started reading it and as much as I didn't want to stop I did because I didn't want to rush through it in order to get to the end. This story was about a journey, not only for Ben and his brothers, but also for the people who were in their lives. A journey that started with such a tragedy and through a lot of trial and error ended up in a place where everything was meant to be. Even though this story starts with a tragic event, there is really very li [...]

Thank you BiOB for this opportunity!My rating 4,5.I had this book to read for a long time, and I am glad that I finally choose it, because is a beautiful story, intelligently written, that grabbed me from the first to the last word!This book tel [...]

Back home, he is about to be handed some life lessons courtesy of his three younger brothers and the man across the street. Travis Atwood has been surrogate son, and stand in big brother for the Walsh clan. When Ben returns home, Travis isn't sure what to make [...]

    A lovely cosy read!A book easy to read, about loss, new beginnings and family! I loved this story and although the plot is about grief, the main centre is about hope and following your heart, all the characters were so lovable! Travis and Ben… Hot!!! I loved them together, their ups and downs and misunderstandings, and the kinky fetish:DDI had a great reading time watching them bumble their way to their (view spoiler)[HEA (hide spoiler)].Overall, I really enjoyed this author and look forward t [...]

    Ack! I am in book love euphoria at the moment. This books was so good. I am on the best book streak right now. Brad Boney, you just about killed me toward the end of this book. Not even throwing The Vampire Diaries in there was healing. Not one damn bit but you pulled it off. Thank goodness.Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. Oh, I had no idea where this book would take me. I knew from Andrew’s status updates that the pop culture references to all my favorite TV sh [...]

    1,5 stars.Review might contain spoiler!The writing style was ok. Some parts were even good, but they were unfortunately in the minority.It was a predictable, unrealistic and boring story which got sappy at times - not a good mixture. The dialogues didn't sound particularly good to me. The whole "parents die in a tragic accident" part felt solely as a plot device and the emotional impact wasn't noticeable enough. The characters remained shallow and cliched most of the time. Ben, the protagonist, [...]

    Rounded up to 3 starsIt was not bad, and I can understand why so many readers like this book. Or better to say, I try at least to understand WHY. It's a very CONVENTIONAL MM-ROMANCE with a typical HEA. I don't belong to the target audience for such kind of stories, but it doesn't mean that it is bad. For my taste it's too sweet, too unrealistic, too full of clichés. It's me. Nevertheless, I think that this story meets the required conditions to be a successful TV mini series. Considering a lot [...]

    A new name in m/m fiction, Brad Boney has produced an extremely likeable - slightly different - m/m romance that quietly crept up on me and took me by surprise. Ben appears to have everything, he's got his dream job with a prestigious law firm in New York and he's good at it, a handsome boyfriend, a rich best friend and a lifestyle he is quite happily becoming accustomed to then tragedy strikes and he has to go home to brothers he hasn't seen for quite a few years and some tough decisions. Then [...]

    This was a book I could not put down, It flowed well and the writing was excellent. And while I liked both characters, I gotta say I really loved Travis! OMG What a great guy!! And while I eventually liked Ben, he was a bit self absorbed, but as he evolved and grew he definitely got in my heart. I thought the secondary characters were wonderful, Colin, David and Ben’s brothers were all characters I could read more about. Because of the death of Ben’s parents in an accident, he is forced to g [...]

    DNF @ 74%. No rating for a DNF book. Thought it was fairly childish actually. It should have been called "The Nothingness of Nothingness." The only reason I started it is that Book 2 has a sort of a Springsteen theme and I saw some reviews that said characters from this book show up in it. Not sure I will even bother with Book 2 now even though I am a HUGE Springsteen fan.

    This is a brilliant story and incredibly moving. It drew me in and held my attention from the beginning right to the end. The first thing that struck me about this story is the richness of its characters and dialogue. The story begins with the death of Ben's parents, a tragedy which brings unwanted change and upheaval to Ben's life. The story, which flows beautifully, is one about how he rebuilds life for both himself and his brothers.One of the things that struck me was Ben's confidence. It mak [...]

    Man, I loved this book. Travis is just too sweet and cute for words. I wanted to strangle Ben at times but I really liked him too. I'm a fan of flawed characters. Loved their love story and the brothers were just awesome.

    The scale of 1-5 and the poverty of the English language are not enough to convey the greatness of this book.

    Wow I cannot believe what an amazing story this one is :)I was smiling and at times crying (yes I am an emotional woman so it could just be me) hahahahaha! I felt all these emotions because Brad Boney is a talented author who has the ability to completely immerse you into the lives of the characters. I will definitely be reading more books of his as this was my first. I loved Ben and Travis together and how they had their issues in their relationship yet still worked through them. I am actually [...]

    My impression when reading this book blurb: "This sounds just like my type of book."What I think after reading: I'm between 2.5 and 3 stars.I'm sad because this book could have been my perfect book but it wasn't. There was something missing for me, and too much happening in the book.I'll try to write a complete review later, but now all I can say is that I'm disappointed with thisETA: Ery put it better than I could describe, her review.

    4 Obi Wan StArSThis was a different but nice book. I could have gone without the foot fetish but luckily it wasn't hammered on!!!This was an amazing story, there were beauty and sadness in the pages.I LOVED, LOVED the part where Ben "dreams" of his dad and all those wise words knocked me on my ass!!!!
