Love is love. But what if the fight for equality gets in the way of building a relationship?

Lorcan Barratt has never considered himself relationship material. After his parents made it perfectly clear they’d never welcome a partner of his into their home, he learned to love his own company and can’t imagine sharing his life with another. After a single passionate kiss with Eric Kavanagh—the night before he travels to Canada for three months—Lorcan’s no longer sure he wants to be on his own. The problem is, he has no idea what sharing his life with someone else might entail.

Eric Kavanagh grew up in a loving and supportive family and always assumed he’d end up in a committed relationship. Sure that he’s found the one, Eric doesn’t worry about the fact that Lorcan has no experience when it comes to love and relationships. They are good together, so what could possibly go wrong?

When both men get involved in the marriage equality referendum in Ireland, it appears to bring them even closer together until Lorcan’s insecurities get the upper hand and he shuts Eric out. Will the fight for a yes-vote cost them their relationship or will they be able to find a balance between the love they share and the need for equality?

Author Bio

Helena Stone can’t remember a life before words and reading. After growing up in a household where no holiday or festivity was complete without at least one new book, it’s hardly surprising she now owns more books than shelf space while her Kindle is about to explode.

The urge to write came as a surprise. The realisation that people might enjoy her words was a shock to say the least. Now that the writing bug has well and truly taken hold, Helena can no longer imagine not sharing the characters in her head and heart with the rest of the world.

Having left the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam for the peace and quiet of the Irish Country side she divides her time between reading, writing, long and often wet walks with the dog, her part-time job in a library, a grown-up daughter and her ever loving and patient husband.

Incredible story! Reading about Lorcan's family life was almost like living my own life, there are so many similarities.

I really love the fight for LGBT rights and Lorcan's speech towards the end is mind-blowing.

I could actually feel the tension within Lorcan and how much Eric wanted to help him. Eric's frustration was very evident in this beautifully written  story. Of all (and there have been many) books I've read, there aren't many with such compelling and intense characters.

Even though it is a work of fiction, this book makes readers aware that other countries besides America are fighting for marriage equality. If people get tired of fighting for equal rights, they should read Equality and take strength from Lorcan and Eric's fight.

I would gladly give Equality 100 stars if I could, but I'm limited to 5 stars, so 5 stars it is.

Equality deserves to be on everyone's bookshelf, Kindle, Nook, Sony eReader or any other eBook reader.
