Tommy Bradley has a problem. He loves his job at the Lost Cow ranch and his family but after the troubles his bosses had the last year, he is loathed to come out to his family. What he doesn’t anticipate was meeting Noah Taylor, a pastor at a gay friendly church. Noah is out and proud but in order to be with him, Tommy has to do the one thing that he is afraid of-come out of the closet and embrace who he really is. Because without that being done, the relationship between him and Noah will end. Can Tommy find the strength to be the person he is meant to be and find a love worth fighting for?

COMPLETE FAITH is the sequel to Sue Brown’s wonderful Morning Report. We met the boys of the Lost Cow ranch and the town they live in as well as Pastor Noah. The sparks flew between Noah and Tommy then and I was thrilled to see they got their own story in the next book. COMPLETE FAITH continues after MORNING REPORT ended and I was thrilled to see familiar faces amid some new ones pop in the story. I fell in love with the characters in the first book and I was enthralled with them even more in the second book. With the right amount of plot twists, sexual tension, character growth and more, Sue Brown does a wonderful thing-give the readers a book that is just as good as the first one. Sometimes, sequels don’t measure up and I am happy to report this wasn’t the case with COMPLETE FAITH.

We met Tommy and Noah in MoORNING REPORT. Tommy is a in the closet gay man, afraid to even announce he is gay to his bigoted family in fear he would be rejected by them. The characters fairly brim with life. I was amazed at how life like they were. Sue Brown has a wonderful grasp at who the characters are and lets them shine in all ways within the pages of her newest book. They are multi-dimensional, enjoyable and quite relatable. I loved how Momma, Luke’s mother from Morning Report, pops in and scolds everyone. Plus the love and commitment between Luke and Simon is quite something to behold, even in a secondary role here.

With each page, the reader is captivated more in the lives of the Lost Cow ranch members and their assorted friends/family. Sue Brown delivers a wonderful, stirring story that left me gasping in the end from a plot twist I didn’t see coming. All I can say is, Please Ms. Brown, please give us one more book in the Morning Report series.

If you haven’t picked up one of this author’s books, why the heck not? Her character driven stories will leave you breathless and eager for more. I can not wait to see what else this author has up her sleeve for her readers in the future.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of the book.
