There isn't a shred of logic to how they meet, connect, develop a friendship and try to open each one's bolted closet doors. There are a few total cliché characters and situations. But when Cade is spinning his tale he is also drawing us into an extraordinary dialogue and a great deal of soul searching into what God is, means, and who has the right to trust that he exists, or is even compassionate.
There are times when you want to strangle both men, but eventually their paths go from crossed to parallel in a series of incidents that are predictable, but nicely handled and, if needed, exploited or overcome.
Bless you, Mr. Cade
Abel steps into Cullen's life at the right time and steers him in a new direction. The story is about loss, coping, and carrying on. It's about how religion can play a part in a gay man's life. Frankly, it's a sensitive topic and not many m/m readers want religion in their stories. This story hit a nice medium without being overbearing or preachy. Cullen is gay and accepted for who he is and Abel is closeted because his religion isn't accepting.
Losing Faith is what happens when hope is lost and your will to live is gone. I didn't see Cullen at that point because his loss is 2 years old. So the title Losing Faith takes on new meaning with Abel. He does 'lose' his faith but he regains so much more. Both men have been tried and tested and come out whole. The point is finding your balance and moving on because life is always changing and never the same.
As I don't do apps, it was interesting reading how a running app works. Now I know why I don't use them. No wonder no one answers my 'hello' when I'm out with my dog and they go breezing by with ear plugs in. !! Actually, it's rude. But back to the review:
I did wonder how the theological differences of two religions will work for Abel. How can he convert a lifetime of beliefs into a new religion?
Even if it is a small town, I can't picture an assistant pastor being followed and photographed. The spying in itself isn't honest and a congregation should trust their leaders not look to find fault. .. .But of course it works for the story.
Then there was the pastor's wife being hypocritical and self righteous, doing everything she can to show she's a homophobe, intolerant, and up on her own little bandwagon. Who knows if her husband is the same, not much is written on him. It's guaranteed a story with a religious topic has to have a righteous Christian to push the gay agenda. Typical and over the top.
This was an okay read for me. While I was happy for a HEA, I expected it. While some reviewers didn't appreciate the prologue, I did. I enjoy reading a story based on a real life experience. It gives credibility instead of basing a story on a fantasy. Reading about someone else having one of these 'I should have' moments brings the encounter down to my level -- Because often I have those moments and I try to act on them. Doing so enriches my life, makes me a better person. - Dan's Wife
You have to read this book! Allow yourself to be free and open while reading this. I don't think anyone else could have written this any more beautifully.
The 2 main characters--as way too often with gay MM romance stories--consist of 1 openly gay and 1 deep in closet. Throw in gay guy's heart breaking loss (of a lover) and there we go into getting over loss while convincing closet case to accept being gay; it's not a bad thing; be yourself; etc. How many times are we to read the same story line(s) in LGBT romance?
In this case, the twist is 2 ministers of different churches--closet case is Baptist--but most of us I think already regard Baptists as homophobes, worse than Mormons, while gay Cullen as an Episcopalian, whose church we all know is *gay heavenly*. Okay, clever, I suppose.
However--and this is where I disliked the story--the author spends WAY too much time on both characters' mental ruminations/questions/fears on the paths from the past to a future together? Good heavens (to make a pun), get on with it. I like stories with dialog, not as much *thinking* in the characters' heads.
One rule that I have with Amazon/Kindle is that I will not purchase a story that is less than 200 pages. This one made the cut but it felt like the longest 200 pages ever.
