Sunday Book Review

Missing
by
Drake Braxton

This book grabbed me from the very beginning and never let go.  It starts right out in the mist of the action as Blain realizes that his Husband of 15 years Manny has gone missing at Blain's 20th class reunion. So starts the search of the hotel for his husband, first asking some of the reunion attendees, then checking her room, in the hopes that he had become bored with the reunion and returned to the room to rest, things grow expediently more frantic after Blain discovers Manny's cell phone discarded in a potted plant.
From this point the story picks up even more steam.  The book takes the reader on many twists and turns as revelations about Blain's own baggage and his affair two years ealyer that nether Manny nor Blain him self could forgive him for.  It brings the reader on a trip of self destruction and discovery, drown in enough booze to numb the world. With every twist the reader becomes all the more engrossed in the story wanting to know what is to come next.

This may be Braxton's first novel but one would never guess that, the writing is top shelf, and polished to perfection. The book dose not fit neatly into one genera which is part of the beauty of the book, there is mystery, suspend drama and even romance, all woven together so well that the reader never feels that any of those elements is out of place.  The reader truly experiences all the emotions the Blain goes threw on his journey thew out the book, which is along with the story line and the  intreagle  nature of the supporting charters that fleshed out extremely well and ring true to reality.  This along with the story line it self is why once you pick the book up you will not want to put it down.

The book is available only as an ebook on both Barns & Noble and Amazon for $6.99, which is the best $6.99 that you will ever spend

I   absolutely  loved this book and would recommend it to any one that is willing to listen.
Until next time dear readers.

  1. I really appreciate you taking the time to read and review the book. Some people are put off by the multi-genre approach, but I'm so glad it spoke to you!

Insight Into Myself From Article Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness

So I recently read this article on The Huffington Post Hightline called Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness this article is one that I would highly recommend reading.  It is an article that touched me in a significant way.  The article fouces on why even thought the gay community has come a long way in gaining equal rights, it still suffers from high rates of suicide, depression, anxiety and substance abuse.  The article points out that "are between 2 to 10 times more likely then straight people to take their own life. Where twice as likely to have a major depressive episode" And this pattern holds up in countries that where even early adopter to things like gay marriage.  While there virtually no study on the subject in the US in Canada it has been found that more gay men a year die from suicide them they do for HIV/AIDs if those finding are to hold true in the US suicide could be the next major epidemic with in the gay community taking countless number of lives…

When We Rise Review.

I know that I am late to the game on When We Rise on ABC, but I have just finished watching it on demand.  I would say if you have not watched it, it is a must watch.  The series is very well put together, and it gets you wrapped up in it from the very start, and you will want to binge watch the whole series in one sitting, This the cinematography in this series is first rate, and the use of music helps to increase the emotional impact of this series, I have to admit that I teared up multiple times through out the series, as you get so deeply engrossed in what is going on that emotionally you wined up placing yourself into what is going on.  While I wish that they had put in a few more things in the gay rights movement it really dose a very thorough job of showing the fight for equality.  More after the jump.

Time For Giving Trump A Chance Is Gone

The time to give Trump another chance has long passed, it passed way before election day. Yet there are those out there that say now that he has been elected it is time to give him another one.  They say that because after the election he has done some “good talking” by saying that he wants to be a president for “all Americans” but that is just talk, if you look at the people that he is putting in charge of his transition team, and the people that are in the front running for his cabinet positions, you will see that he has no interest in being a president for all people. He only has an interest in being the kind of president for the kind of people that he spent the last year and half telling us that he wanted to be on the campaign trail.  He is not putting people into positions of power that have any interest in uniting the country and insuring that all Americans are represented, instead he is putting extremist politicians and lobbyist in charge of his transition team, assigning them…
