M/M Challenge Review: Faith & Fidelity by Tere Michaels
I’d love to have a list of all changes to the previous edition. I am just that weird ;- less. Lists with This Book.
Nov 10, Heather K dentist in my spare time rated it liked it Recommended to Heather K dentist in my spare time by: I missed it so. I need some penetration and SOON, lady! Give me the goods! It is angsty yet easy to relate to, and it feels very realistic. I ahd that the emotions that Evan goes through ring very true. His concerns as a father This book has a nice, honest quality that I enjoyed.
Evan and Matt also make a very lovely couple and I found myself rooting hard for them. My main gripe, other than that listed in my above spoiler, is the constant POV changes.
Good god, I counted 6 6!!! That is 4 too many for my taste. I found it to be more than a little distracting.
Faith and Fidelity
If the book was stylistically just a little different, it would have been a home-run. As it stands, it ranks somewhere between “liked” and “really liked” for me. I have the next two in the series already loaded on my Kindle, but they are pushed down a bit as lower priority reads for me right now. Still a worthwhile read but not quite what I was expecting. Perhaps it is partially my fault for expecting it to be completely epic. View all 35 comments. Micgaels you will find however is an emotional journey between two men that never expected to find love with anyone much less another man.
fjdelity This story is heart wrenching, beautiful, funny, compassionate, intimate, sad, realistic, tender and ultimately unputdownable. Lonely and depressed Matt quickly becomes the perfect non-judgemental drinking buddy for Evan, each finding a form of solace in the others despair.
Somewhere adn the way though the lines begin to blur and a mutual physically attraction takes hold, shocking confusing and exciting both men. There are some very sweet scenes here as each tries to deal with these new feelings of desire and learns how to be with another man, because as much as they want each other neither of them knows how to scratch the itch.
The sex scenes here faity explosive and sexy without being explicit and I enjoyed their path to discovery. Oct 06, Julio Genao rated it did not like it. This is another really shitty book review.
Oh, the angsty, angsty, angsty men. But some good bits if you can tolerate that kind of thing. That’s all I wrote. You should probably flag this. View all 26 comments. Aug 06, Exina rated it liked it Shelves: Evan Cerelli had lost his wife in a car accident, and had been left alone with four children.
But faitj is tired of the one-night stands, depressed and teere, and he hates his job. When Evan and Matt meet, they recognize something familiar in each other. He wasn’t exactly sure why he was reaching out to this man— maybe force of habit. You see someone sitting that far down in the gutter, you lend him a hand. Matt Haight let the conversational buzz and beer settle into his bones; it’d been a long time since he’d been drinking with anyone else around.
And Evan Cerelli — well, there was something in his expression that Matt recognized. Neither one of them was entirely comfortable here, but, in the same breath, where else were they supposed to be? So Matt smiled back.
They find unexpected acceptance and open up for each other. The weekly meetings for a beer quickly turn into a deep friendship. It was the highlight of his week, sitting in the near-dark, just talking, listening, drinking.
They created a little cocoon of their misery, a safe haven in which to feel like a piece of garbage. To be tired and bitter and a failure, with no ane. And though both of them were heterosexual in all their lives, they start to have romantic and erotic feelings for each other. He couldn’t pinpoint when he’d started noticing the little things, like the odd silver-blue color of Evan’s eyes, or the way he moved He tried not to spend too much time dwelling on any of it, because it posed a much larger question than Matt was willing to ponder.
Of course the not pondering didn’t help the situation once the dreams began. If the author made him capable of developing romantic feelings for someone else other than his wife, I nichaels he is ready to move on. It scared the hell out of him, feeling this out of control. A man he craved and wanted with all his heart, and that was terrifying.
And maybe deep down he was afraid it was wrong.
Wrong for a man who had been married for seventeen years, wrong for a father…. What if the muchaels heard he was What if the children found out? Shaking a little, Evan put his hands up to his head, as if to stop the tremors.
He couldn’t even fathom their reactions. They might be ridiculed, ostracized. And suddenly, a wave of panic swamped over him. He saw spots explode in front of his eyes What if they rejected him? He was surprised more by falling in love than the fact that it was for a man. Of course, his desires for another man shocked him first, but the love issue was the bigger hit.
A michawls weeks ago he would have never imagined being in this state, being aroused and emotional and so So fucking in love he could barely function. The words were still frightening but their power has lessened. Every time he confirmed and confessed his love for Evan, the rightness of it was reinforced.
Where are the beautiful words, redemption, sweet absolution, the reassurance of their love for each other, and most importantly, the hot make-up sex???
