Book Review: No More Hiding by Renee Stevens

Philip Jorgensen tried his best to live the life that others wanted him to live. He married, had children and played the straight role. However, one day he just couldn't live a lie any longer. His wife was crushed, but agreed to a divorce. When her suspicions about Philip's sexuality were confirmed, she packed up their two kids and disappeared. For six years Philip has been doing everything in his power to find his precious children, forgoing any sort of personal pleasures (like relationships). When Vance Pierce comes into his life, Philip doesn't know how he was ever lucky enough to find such a great man. His life would be complete if he could only find his children.

I really enjoyed this book. From the synopsis, one would think it would be filled with angst and dark moments. Don't get me wrong, there is angst, but it's not as heavy as I originally expected. The development of Philip and Vance's relationship was delightful to watch. The secondary characters, which consist of Philip's twin brother, Robert, his sister-in-law, Marissa, and niece and nephew were all very likeable and interesting.

My only complaint about this book was the constant use of the questions "You okay," and "Are you okay," throughout the book, especially the second half. I completely understand why these sentences were used, but it seemed like the questions showed up on just about every page and in every conversation.

All in all, this was a great story about a man finding his way in life.
