His Secret Life // Book Review



His Secret Life

Gay men don’t fall in love with women. Do they?

Philip is a gay man working for a conservative corporation. After his recent promotion, he needs a date for a company function and asks his sister’s new roommate, Emily.

Emily is an actress, waiting tables while starring in local plays and hoping for her big break. She agrees to be Philip’s date for the party, and soon they are attending one event after another together.

Philip and Emily click on many levels. Lines blur as the people they pretend to be start feeling like the people they are, causing a rift with Philip’s boyfriend Jason.

When Philip no longer works for the company, he doesn’t need Emily to play the role of his girlfriend anymore, but to his surprise, he can’t let her go.

“A powerful story that reveals the complexity of the human heart.” ~ NYT Bestselling author Russell Blake 

“His Secret Life proves love defies labels. It can transcend age, race, and gender.” ~ Amazon Bestselling author Deborah Brown 

“An unconventional romance. Our book club enjoyed discussing their complicated relationship.” ~ reader J. Nelson

My Thoughts:

This is the second book by Kim Cano that I have read which was absolutely fantastic, so I had high hopes for this book. His Secret Life had me intrigued right from the start as I hadn’t read anything along the same genre.

I completely understood why Philip pretended he was straight, but I didn’t agree with him doing it. We shouldn’t have to pretend we are something we are not to be accepted in this world. That really bugged me. However it didn’t surprise me that he started to fall for Emily. This book reiterates the fact that the heart is a very powerful thing and you can not choose who you love.

His Secret Life is extremely well written and Kim really brings the characters to life.

    Your summary at the start really drew me in. I love a book with a question, something that draws me and keeps me going! This sounds brilliant (seriously!) I’m back into books again this week, I’ve just bought myself the new H.P book but I’m not ‘into it’ yet so I’m looking for something else! Thank you Laura! x

    I’m an avid reader and this one sounds right up my street. I prefer a paperback to a kindle and always look out for a read I can get my teeth into.
