    After reading Patience, I m all gear up to read about Lorcan and Eric They are both the respective bffs for the previous heroes, Xander and Troy I enjoyed their Fantastic Four dynamic since last book and wondering what is the story for the other two guys.From the beginning of Equality, Eric just came back for a three months long assignment and Lorcan was a nervous wreck awaiting his arrival Their reunion is simply delightful and I enjoyed seeing how they both tip toeing each other, wondering how they should proceed in their relationship Eric came from a very loving family and he isn t afraid to fall in love and fully embrace the new relationship with Eric without much fanfare However, that is the total opposite for Lorcan Lorcan worried too much, about his family, his community, and people in general His family doesn t accept his sexuality and his conversation with them left me feeling homicidal Although when it comes to homophobic and religious family members, they aren t the worst I like the first half of the story, when both of them still wondering are their feelings reciprocated And when they finally get together, I m all giddy with happiness The inclusion of Xander and Troy is also a nice touch, I love catching up with the guys However, the second part of the story seems to drag a little wit...

    I m sad to say I couldn t really connect here.I thought for sure I would enjoy it because I was so intrigued with their hot first kiss at the end of book onebut I just missed the click.It s important to read this sequel in order It s not a bad book by any means I just think this is one of those me not you scenarios Lorcan and Eric jump into a relationship quickly and things flow smoothly But the marriage equality vote is coming up in Ireland and it brings a surge of emotions to the forefront of their relationship Lorcan s family never disowned him when he came out, but they made it clear they would never SUPPORT him either Since Lorcan didn t see himself as a settling down type, its impact never hit home Then he discovers he IS relationship material and mourns the lack of acceptance within his family Their journey until election day has its highs and lows.I enjoyed having Xander and Troy return from book one I m not really interested in Shane and Chris, so I think I ll ...

    Lorcan and EricIreland standing before a big referendum Will it be Yes or No to the Marriage Equality For Lorcan this is big, his parents aren t supporting him Their opinion about his preference to men is based on their religion.and we all know what that means.Eric has a very different background and is coming from a very supportive family.When Eric will be gone for three months their goodbye is sort of unexpected and passionate.Lorcan was never in a relationship and thinks he will never be but now.maybe..The story starts when Lorcan is riding to the airport to pick up Eric Their friends Troy and Xander from 1 can t make it on time so there is only Lorcan and it feels a bit awkward one kiss they shared and Lorcan with no relationship experience at all is a bit nervous He just doesn t know how to react, how to communicate Luckily Eric knows what he wants and that is Lorcan.and he is clear about that fact.Eric is just straightforward, you get what you see.honest, open, real and sweet.Lorcan is complicated, he struggles His parents and their opinion about life ...

    4.5 Stars Equality is the second installment of Helena Stone s Dublin Virtues series, and picks up on the tantalizing question of whether or not Eric and Lorcan were exploring than just a passing friendship at the end of book one With both Xander and Troy now firmly established as a couple, and the tattoo parlor a stable business, the novel focuses on Troy s best friend, Lorcan, and his ever growing attraction to Eric, who has just returned from three months away in Canada While the two hit it off on Skype, both were still unsure of how to handle their feelings for each other now that they were in the same place at the same time, particularly Lorcan, who had never had a boyfriend before.Taking care of himself and steering clear of emotional entanglements had been how Lorcan moved through life prior to meeting Eric, and his imagination runs wild with disastrous scenarios drummed up by his na vet about what it means to be involved with someone It doesn t help that Lorcan had been cast aside by his parents, who are devoutly catholic and view his sexuality as an abomination, which has hurt him deeply and left him feeling alone and adrift It s carrying this painful burden that steers ...

    I had been anxious to read Eric s and Lorcan s story in follow up to the story of their best friends Xander and Troy in Patience Equality unfolds beginning with Eric s return to Ireland after a three month job assignment in America Lorcan is extremely nervous as it closes in on time to pick up Eric at the airport Even though the two have remained in contact electronically since sharing their first kiss the night before Eric departed for Canada, Lorcan is nervous about what might or might not happen next between the two Will they rekindle what they had finally started, or will it fade away Thankfully the flame still burns bright, and they quickly pick up from where they left off As chance may have it, Eric s new apartment also just happens to be right across the hall from Lorcan s flat, and the couple s relationship quickly blossoms.The elephant in the room, though, is Lorcan s fight with his family s inability to accept his sexuality, and it parallels the overarching plot revolving around the Equality Referendum vote in Ireland His parents may deflect their ignorance and denial of their son s lifestyle to the Catholic religion and blindly following the Church s dictate and doctrine, but a surprise in the form of Lorcan s outspoken and independent grandmother offers an alternative perspective And Lorcan s passionate speech on his hometown stage Poignant and brilliant.Eric s and Lorcan s friendship and...

    I love Helena Stone s Dublin Virtues series, although, and actually because, events aren t always smooth sailing for the heroes In fact, some people in the stories disappoint me, but there is always room for a corner to be turned or a mind to be changed Sometimes the frustration with how a character behaves is due to circumstances that, at the time, are due to a backstory that we, along with the other story characters, do not have access to Yet.In Book 1, Patience, Troy fulfilled his dream of opening his own tattoo parlor in partnership with a talented artist, only to be betrayed at the last minute, leaving Troy to shoulder all of the expense and work of opening and running the shop We also briefly meet Eric and Lorcan, who are the focus of the second story, Equality Ms Stone carefully weaves real life events into her books, and in this case it is marriage equality This is something that has great meaning to Troy, although initially he is not intending to get married himself.At the beginning of the story Eric surprises Lorcan by becoming his neighbor Eric is a stand up kind of guy who thinks before he acts and seems quite reserved Lorcan, on the other hand, can be obsessive about matters that he believes in and tends to go off on tangents In other words, Eric is exactly what Lorcan needs and Lorcan is exactly what Eric needs This difference in personalities is what makes their relationship a slow burn rather th...

    A Joyfully Jay review 4.75 starsEquality is the second book in Helena Stone s Dublin Virtues series This could be read as a standalone, although I would recommend reading Patience first It is in Patience where we initially meet Eric and Lorcan and have an insight into the interactions between them, preceding their kiss For me, Equality continues Stone s series perfectly, with familiar characters, the beautiful setting of Ireland, as well as Stone building upon series events, and not only those with Eric and Lorcan.Stone s characterization of the two men is fundamentally careful and because of this, we are able to react easily to their story However, in my opinion, Lorcan is the intense half of the couple and therefore, his narrative is the one I found consuming Stone s stroke of genius is in creating two parents who have not rejected their son because of his sexuality, but who have unwillingly accepted him, though they refuse to meet any partner he may have I definitely would have empathized with Lorcan if he had been turned away by his family, but the fact that Stone allows us to meet his parents and that they firmly express their disapproval just makes the equality message in the novel all the poignant.Lorcan has been reluctant to confront his parents because of his guilt over upsetting the family dynamic...

    This one was so much better than book 1 So pleased i persevered I think because we got to know Lorcan and Eric in book 1 i was definitely connected to them.Lorcan and Eric share a hot kiss before Eric goes off to Canada Keeping in touch by phone and skype they start a relationship of sorts When Eric returns Lorcan isn t sure how it was going to be but Eric shut that down pretty quick by introducing Lorcan to his family Lorcan didn t realize he wanted a relationship and because he has no experience of one he starts to second guess everything that happens Thankfully Eric can read him like a book and managed to shut down his insecurities They both throw themselves into the referendum for gay marriage Of course Eric wants it but Lorcan seems to be taking it as a personal crusade and Eric can t figure out why Lorcan doesn t know how to open up to Eric about his reasons so keeps it hidden causing unnecessary worries for them both.This one keeps a much better pace and kept me interested from the start I really enjoyed Lorcan and Eric s relationship I loved how Lorcan was insecure about the relationship but he seemed so sure of Eric it was quite sweet and a little naive and this gave him a little piece of my heart I also broke a little at how he just took what his family put him through not wanting to break i...

    4 Stars Equality is book 2 in the Dublin Virtues series and while technically it could be read as a standalone, Eric and Lorcan are featured in book 1, Patience, and we see the start of their friendship there, so I recommend reading them in order Lorcan and Eric weren t looking for love, but after sharing a passionate kiss the night before Eric leaves to go work in Canada for 3 months, they are both nervous and anxious for what might come out of it now that Eric is back in Ireland However, Lorcan s insecurities and being involved in the fight for the marriage equality referendum in Ireland might prove too much for their relationship.I loved the first half of this book The chemistry between Lorcan and Eric was amazing and I just couldn t get enough of them together I really liked seeing them move on from the friendship they d forged in Patience and settle into a relationship As we moved further into the second half of the book, I found myself wanting to strangle Lorcan and though I understood where he was coming from, but really, Eric had done nothing but try to support him and be there for him and help with the whole referendum deal, so Lorcan s insecurities had me fed up Still, this was an entertaining read, the fight for the yes vote is definitely an important issue no matter the country and I enjoyed reading Lorcan and Eric s story for the most part It was a well written book and I am looking forward to ...

    I have been looking forward to reading Eric and Lorcan s story ever since they met when their best friends, Zander and Troy met in Patience Boy, did Helena Stone deliver Set with the backdrop of the Yes Referendum for marriage equality in Ireland, Eric and Lorcan try to balance dating, family, and well equality.As a heterosexual woman I have no idea what it is like to come out to one s family and having a close loving relationship with my parents I can t imagine what it feels like to have them turn on you either but I would think that to face what Lorcan does could be so trying To have them basically say okay but don t bring it to our door , I can t imagine the lack of hope and support he feels so when his grandmother steps up and supports him at a family dinner made me smile and cry happy tears and showed Lorcan that perhaps not all hope is lost Having said that, the author really conveys L...
