Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Nick Nolan was born and raised in Los Angeles, the city he has haunted for over two decades. Working nights and weekends selling furniture to put himself through college, Nolan went on to direct a group home for homeless and abused GLBT youth. During his scant spare time, he began writing. Inspired by the works of writers like Armistead Maupin, Paul Russell, and Paul Monette, he penned his debut novel, Strings Attached, the first in a planned trilogy. Shortly after its release, Strings Attached was named the 2006 Gay/Lesbian Book of the Year by ForeWord Magazine, hit #1 in Gay Fiction on Amazon.com, and spent nearly a year in that genre's Top 10. Two years later Nolan's second thriller Double Bound won Book of the Year awards for Gay/Lesbian Fiction by both ForeWord Magazine and ReaderViews.

Nick, his partner and their two beloved dogs divide their time between their home in the San Fernando Valley and their cabin high in the mountains of California. A third novel is expected soon.

HASH(0x8ccf2ca8) von 5 Sternen Gay fiction, schmay fiction! 11. November 2008
Von Arthur Singer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm one of those readers who finds an author, and - if I like him/her - I'll read everything that they write until I'm disappointed. Patterson, Flemming, King, etc., etc. Nothing complicated. I, simply, like to be entertained. A year ago, a dear friend turned me on to this Nick Nolan guy and to his first book - Strings Attached. Although he felt obliged to "warn" me that I would be reading "gay fiction", I bought a copy, opened the box from Amazon, and didn't put the book down again until it was finished. I sat there a while trying to figure out why the book was listed as "gay fiction". OK, OK.......there IS an obvious gay bent to the story line but to pigeon-hole the work as solely "gay", does not do Mr. Nolan justice. The story and characters are incredibly well developed and thoughtful. The story line is a nail-biter in every sense of the cliché.

Nolan's latest is every bit as insightful as Strings Attached. Double Bound is another example of wonderful fiction - straight, gay, black, white, polka-dotted, plaid - whatever! Although one may have a tendency to characterize this as a sequel, I prefer to think of it as a continuing saga as well as trip a couple of layers deeper into the tangle of a very intricate plot-line that is every bit as tense and compelling as that unveiled in book number one.

I understand that work number three is currently in development. One more success and Nolan achieves the literary equivalent of the "hat trick". To readers who are fans of story that is unpredictable, plot twists that are not gratuitous and characters that are believable and still remain interesting - Nolan is your guy! In a nutshell - he is just plain talented. So.......gay, schmay..........Read him. You won't be disappointed!

HASH(0x8deff8f4) von 5 Sternen Didn't Grab Me 21. Mai 2010
Von A. Luciano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Katharine Tyler is a wealthy businesswoman who is part of a group that is building and managing a spectacular resort in Brazil. She is unsure of her partner in Brazil, and decides to send her nephew Jeremy, his lover Carlo, and a family employee, Arthur, to check on things. Arthur is a former Marine and FBI agent and will act as bodyguard to the two younger men.

The trip for Arthur is agonizing, as he has feelings for Jeremy but knows it would be wrong to act on them. He is simply trying to survive, when suddenly the three men are plunged into danger they didn't imagine.

I was really looking forward to reading this book, as I feel like gay men are a group under-represented in fiction. I was interested in reading a book in which the main characters were gay, but the book wasn't about their gayness.

This book, although full of gay characters (an unbelievable amount of gay characters!), didn't give any of them three-dimensionality. They were uniformly gorgeous, hardbodied, sexually excited. The first comment any of the men in this book made about any new male character was how hot he was. Arthur's feelings for Jeremy were juvenile and, because of Arthur's past relationship, a bit creepy. Jeremy and Carlo's relationship seemed tumultuous without any real emotion.

For all of these reasons, plus the fact that the suspense didn't seem all that suspenseful, this book just didn't grab me. I hope to see more fiction that focuses on gay characters in the future, in a format that will be more appealing to me.

HASH(0x8ccf1270) von 5 Sternen Brilliant Piece of Work! 30. Januar 2009
Von Courtney Sonne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I eagerly awaited the return of Jeremy, Carlo and Arthur the day I finished Strings Attached; however, I never expected Nick Nolan to create such a captivating love story with twists behind every page. I read Double Bound over a two day period as I laid by the pool imagining I was in Brazil with Nolan's picturesque depictions of the sandy, white beaches, surrounded by those beautiful men. Even though my skin was getting baked in the sun, I could not put the book down due to Nolan's ability to leave you in suspense at the end of each chapter. I had to keep turning the page to see what was going to happen. I found myself gaining more excitement as I got deeper into the story and hoping the love would develop between the forbidden pair, yet the sorrow I felt for the man left behind. Although labeled as a "gay fiction", I felt myself, a female committed in a heterosexual relationship, able to connect with the characters and to understand what each was feeling, due to Nolan's brilliant writing. I am beginning to think Nolan is a straight woman trapped in a gay man's body.

Double Bound not only fulfills the adventurous side of us all, but also the longing we have for that passionate love story usually only found in the movies. I cannot wait for the day to watch this novel come to life on the big screen.

HASH(0x8d1225f4) von 5 Sternen Too fluffy - not what I thought 15. Mai 2010
Von Jane E. Applebee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This book fits into what I consider the bodice ripper sub-genre of gay romance. Please understand that I have nothing against bodice-rippers of any sexual persuasion as long as they are intelligently well-written and sexy. Double Bound, however, is neither intelligently well-written nor sexy. It is choppy and it is silly.

I can't read this book. I tried but could not. I read the first 75 pages, it is possible it gets better... but the possibility is not strong enough to keep me reading. On page 75 I still have no clear idea of the book's focus, unless the focus is 'stilted and frivolous gay soft porn without focus'. The vaunted mystery foreshadowed in the prologue is left forgotten there chapter after chapter. Even though the action is about to move on to Brazil - the scene of the prologue's crime - and maybe get off the ground, things are not moving fast enough and I am taking the nearest exit.

HASH(0x8d122c6c) von 5 Sternen My mind is still spinning! 19. Mai 2013
Von Jennifer Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Before I review Double Bound, just wanted to let you know, if you haven't read Strings Attached yet, please read it first. You could read Double Bound without it, but you get more information about the characters and the story in Strings Attached (and it's an awesome book too, don't miss it!).
Onto Double Bound: My mind and heart is still racing! Without giving too much away, Jeremy, Arthur, and Carlo are sent out to Brazil to check out a resort, to make sure Aunt Katharine's investment is a good one. I will tell you that I was on the edge of my seat, that what I hoped would happen did and it made my heart race (I will never get the images out of my head ;-) ), and I felt so many different emotions throughout the book. I love that this novel is focused on Arthur, what Nick calls Arthur's "coming of middle-age story", and I was in tears of what Arthur has been through. The epilouge...I was at a loss, confused even. I am sure it was written for another story to follow, which I hope is being released as soon as possible!! Jeremy and the rest of the characters are going to stay in my mind and heart for a very long time <3
