About the Author
Renae Kaye is a lover and hoarder of books who thinks libraries are devilish places because they make you give the books back.  She consumed her first adult romance book at the tender age of thirteen and hasn’t stopped since.  After years – and thousands of stories! – of not having book characters do what she wants, she decided she would write her own novel and found the characters still didn’t do what she wanted.  It hasn’t stopped her though.  She believes that maybe one day the world will create a perfect couple – and it will be the most boring story ever.  So until then she is stuck with quirky, snarky and imperfect characters who just want their story told.
Renae lives in Perth, Western Australia and writes in five minute snatches between the demands of two kids, a forbearing husband, too many pets, too much housework and her beloved veggie garden.  She is a survivor of being the youngest in a large family and believes that laughter (and a good book) can cure anything.

Andrew and Paul learned about God and Jesus in different churches and realize their views of spirituality are worlds apart.

Andrew was raised Catholic and was told his homosexuality was a sin. For his entire life, he hid the truth. He married and had children to present a facade to the world that of a straight man. It s not until he has an affair with Paul, who shows him a different side of Jesus, that Andrew realizes he can be gay and still believe in God. Paul s Jesus is one of acceptance and love, and in Paul s church, being gay is not a problem.

For Paul and Andrew, falling in love is the easy part of their journey. They must make it through the fires of cheating, being discovered, Andrew s wife leaving, the necessities of childcare and family life, the demands of their jobs, and working on their commitment to each other. Only then can they be safe in each other s heart. "

Wonderfully uplifting!

I started this book with some trepidation.  The author is a favourite of mine and the religious aspect of the story interested me, whilst the cheating made me a little nervous. (My nerves were unfounded.)

As always with Renae Kaye's work, this book is beautifully written, the story flows seamlessly, the characters so well described and developed that you feel you know them. As a somewhat disillusioned Christian, the religious part of this story was really rather uplifting.  A reminder that not all Christians are bigots, not all churches are discriminatory and exclusive, and that people can broaden their opinions and learn to be accepting and tolerant. I think I needed this reminder just now!

Andrew and Paul's relationship is beautiful, regardless of its beginning.  These are two men who love each other desperately, who lift each other up, support one another, and ultimately make each other incredibly happy.  This is NOT a story of a man cheating on a committed, faithful wife - it's the story of a man who, having lived a lie for both of their convenience, being in a position to finally be free to be honest about who he is and what he wants.  It's a story about self-acceptance and incredible courage and love.

I highly recommend this wonderful love story!
