    The blurb does a good job of laying out what this story is and yes, religion plays a large part in the story. This book won?t be for everyone based upon that (and I should also warn that there are references to and on page scenes of suicide attempts) but those who enjoy getting into ...

    It was interesting to see a gay person of faith come to terms with the idea that they can have a relationship with God and be true to themselves. And I liked how Nate?s dad is not portrayed as a monster; it?s much more complicated than that. The preacher loves his son, he?s more ...

    So. This book. I wasn't sure how to tackle a review for this book. I've read the discussions surrounding this contents of the story. I was already on the fence on what to rate it, and I've read many in the queer community have expressed their outrage and concerns over the topics addres...

    Conversion therapy is hateful, violent, and kills queer people; people involved in it cannot be allies or claim to love queer people, and framing those who support conversion therapy as merely misguided or "loving" diminishes the evils suffered in reality. Revenge porn is abhorrent ...

    A completely emotional book to me. There is much here that, if it resonates, will make you tear up and really think and ponder and question. I get why some don't want to forgive Jason - I mean I appreciate they have that thought. It's not about forgiveness though or pushing aside terri...

    This book?obviously not everybody is happy with this book. I?m not sure everybody who commented has actually read the book or read it properly. Why? Because it is a complicated book about a serious matter. So I?m going to try and get my thoughts in line: The people i...

    I'm not averse to religion in stories. I'm not religious at all and personally I think it's more harmful than helpful. But some people get comfort from it and that deserves to be given consideration. That said, I'm not interested in reading about harmful, abusive religion being giv...

    The happiest ending here would be for Nate to get enough therapy to dump both his awful dad and his shithead "boyfriend" for good. ...

    Wow?do I have thoughts about this book. Many many thoughts. Unfortunately I am also in the middle of fighting off the plague and so those thoughts are not quite as coherent as I would hope they would be for this review. Nonetheless, I shall go on. So firstly?Jason Bannon is a se...

    Reaction to reviews & summary Not something I would read for fun as religion at its worst & homophobia makes my blood boil but reading comments, I'm curious. But most importantly I trust Henry as an author, I'm sure she doesn't trivialize suffering/trauma of her characters. ...

    I don?t respond to readers? reviews, even those addressed to me, because I believe those reviews are a reader?s space. However if you have anything to ask about The Preacher?s Son, then I?m happy for you to do that here in my review space. There does seem to be some misco...

    Soooooooooooooo....................... I'm very very very much on the fence with this one. I don't know if I liked it or if I didnt. And that really really makes me sad on this "Blue Monday" Rock & Henry are 1 of my fav colabs ever. They work so freaking well together a...

    This controversial story was really well written. The subject matter?? Well, as far as I'm concerned, the more information there is out there about these camps the better, and that can only be a good thing surely?? No, I'm not gay and am lucky to live in a country where religion and th...

    No considero que esto sea romance, debera estar indicado, aparte, es un completo disparate. ...

    I feel like I need to start this review with a disclaimer. *My opinion on this story is just that and I am in no way negating the effects of abuse and the damage done by conversion therapy camps* I have been known to enjoy twisted, dark theme, untraditional stories. Some are roman...

    3.75* How profound. I can't say this is my favorite, because I've decided stories involving religion (not to be confused with faith) makes me uncomfortable, but it is very well written and makes you think about things. I can't even say I liked Jason or what he did and the wa...

    This book really gives you a lot to think about. Its something I suppose in this day and age to remember that these camps really do still go on. Although the camp in this book diesnt seem as radical as some I have read about. At the beginning I really didnt like Jason, I couldn't beli...

    Hi, I'm an ex fundi- there's NOTHING good about conversion camps whether you're talking about ex gay therapy OR more importantly the behavior adjustment camps that are all over the continental United States. ((NEw Bethany Home for Girls in Corpus Christi, Texas)) if you want to google ...

    The blurb really peaked my interest. I am not a big fan of religious reads to be honest, but that was not what caught my attention. When I read what Jason actually did to Nate....I really wanted to know how that would turn out... I am a very big fan of groveling, and I was hopin...

    As much as it pains me to pass on a new book by this duo, I know myself too well to think I'd enjoy a story centered on religion and a character's faith. ...

    3.5 stars I find that making a review for this book is a bit hard, I find a lot of things about the book very interesting but at the same time it's very hard to get past Jason's actions. In the end, I'm left wondering what were the authors thinking, not in a bad way, just curious. ...

    Not doing it. There?s a line and for me, this is it. I feel like buying and reading this story for enjoyment (which is why i read) would be appropriating a virulent form of emotional and psychological abuse that too many young people suffer through with no hope of respite because the...

    I am on the ledge of trying to decide if I liked this book or if I didn't. I honestly do not know which way I am leaning so I will just stay in the middle on this one where I do but I don't like it. Nate and Jason are both young when they first meet each other. Nate is looking into ...

    When I read the blurb for this one, I immediately knew it would be right for me, and it was! Once I started reading, I wasn't able to put this book down, I just had to know what would happen next. Still, the ratings are not really soaring, so what's the problem with this story? First...

    I just want to say HOW DARE YOU to the authors of this book. How dare you write a story that is nothing more than queer tragedy porn and pass it off as a romance. Do you have any idea how hurtful this nonsense garbage fire of a book is? Do you realize how idiotic you sound trying to pu...

    I haven't read the book so that's why I'm not rating it. Having read the blurb I can't accept this as a romance. Someone having sex with someone, filming them, putting it online and then being forgiven by the abused person? No. Just no. No matter how wrong the character thinks it is, ...

    I can't decide what to be more upset about. The real life victims of conversion camps voicing their concern for this harmful book being ignored and told to shut up? The idea that forced outings and non-consensual recording during sex acts aren't considered irredeemable, but instead...
