Gilliflowers,Bonds of Affection, Memoirs of a Houseboy 2008
eBook (PDF), 435 Pages
‘Fasten your seatbelts for another round of domestic adventures with houseboy Gillibran Brown. In his own words: ‘think of me as a gay male version of Flora Thompson writing not so much about Larkrise to Candleford as Arsehole to Breakfast Time. The BBC will never commission it as a series, but there you go, it’s their loss.’ Gilli walks, talks and quips us through another year with his beloved dictators Dick and Shane.

Oct 18, 2014I found Gillibran Brown's books by chance and I am so glad I did. His writing has sent me in a whirlwind or emotions, laughing, crying and at times so very angry on Gilli's behalf. He comes across as someone who could drive you nuts one minute but be right in your corner helping you out the next. I have finished all four books in one go and I could see the growth this amazing young man has gone through over the years. I can relate to the way he has struggled coming to terms with the restrictions having epilepsy has put on his life, I was diagnosed with epilepsy in my late 30's. But to do it at the same time as coming to terms with his mother's terminal illness must have been overwhelming. I think the rigid structure imposed by Shane and Dick provided him with a way to cope. The humour and the 'domestic adventures' he gets up to certainly keep you reading. I did at times feel exasperated that Shane couldn't see or understand Gilli's anguish and the way he behaved as crys for love and... More > attention, but as the books are written from Gilli's POV may be did and was dealing with them in the best way, under their power exchange relationship, by giving Gilli a way to release his emotions. I would recommend these books to anyone who is interested in MM, Dom/sub relationships. I am now following Gilli on his website gillibran-brown.com, he brings sunshine into a dull day. Thank you for sharing your life with us.< Less
Sep 23, 2012I've been reading the online adventures of Gillibran Brown for a few years now and I've been laughing and crying the whole time. Gilli cracks me up. He can be obnoxious, loud-mouthed, a pain in the arse and totally adorable. I can understand why Dick and Shane put up with all his antics - he keeps them on their toes. 'Gilliflowers, bonds of affection' is the latest book in the series and is a top read. I downloaded the ebook at around 5 yesterday afternoon and, even though it is over 400 pages in length, finished it at 2.30 this morning. I really enjoyed this book. Mr Brown has said that 2008 was a dark year for him and the book shows why. I really felt for Gilli in this book. He gives the other characters a lot of mouth and his actions are not good for a harmonious lifestyle but I think that he does get badly treated by others. What Pen says to him is really cruel. The book does contain more sexual content although this still isn't a major factor. There is a bit more discipline as... More > well. In his online diary, Mr Brown has indicated that this could possibly be the last book in the series. Please say it isn't so. There are still so many stories to be filled in and I want to know the bits which haven't been written down yet. I really recommend this book.< Less
