Complete Faith

Sequel to Morning Report

Complete Faith makes for an interesting read. The story dragged a little in the beginning, but it did pick up later in the book. I enjoyed the interaction between Tommy and Noah. It was good and it made the story worth reading even though it did drag. The bigotry of the small town in which the story takes place made for a lot of tension for the characters as well, but it also showed things as real. I will recommend this book for the fairly good read it is.

Ranchhand Tommy Bradley is struggling with being gay and his attraction to reverend Noah Taylor. Having not come out to his parents, Tommy is afraid to tell them because of his father’s bigotry toward gays. Even though Tommy works for a gay man and his partner he still sees that they also are still having trouble with others attitudes. Tommy wants to be with Noah, but one stipulation is for Tommy to come out to his parents. Tommy decides Noah is more important than his being in the closet. When he does tell everyone things become hard on both men. Can Tommy and his friends help Noah keep his church and they're relationship or will they loose everything in the end?

Book Blurb for Complete Faith

For Tommy Bradley, a hand working on the Lost Cow Ranch in rural Texas, admitting his sexuality is impossible, even if his bosses, Luke and Simon, are gay—Tommy has spent his entire life hiding the truth from his homophobic parents. Then Tommy meets pastor Noah Taylor in Luke’s father’s hospital room, and his difficult secret becomes that much harder to keep.

Noah is unlike any man of God—or any man—Tommy’s ever met. For one thing, his congregation is made up primarily of GLBT individuals and their families. For another, he isn’t afraid of the attraction he feels toward Tommy, and he makes his intentions very clear. But Noah won’t hide his sexuality or his love from the world, and he won’t start a relationship with Tommy while Tommy hides his, either. Faced with the choice of losing Noah or coming out to his parents, Tommy takes his first steps out of the closet.

But Tommy isn’t the only one facing challenges. Thanks to an outpouring of hatred from Pastor Jackson and a group of ranch owners, Noah must cope with the possible loss of his church and his livelihood. Length: Novel
