Overview

Bookstore owner Randy Stone is smitten. His new boyfriend, Kyle Temple, is sweet, hot, attentive, and great in bed. But introducing Kyle to his family takes courage, because Randy’s parents can be a little judgmental, and Kyle is ten years younger than Randy, a small-time pro wrestler, and dumber than the proverbial sack of hammers. Needless to say, Randy’s parents aren’t exactly thrilled, and even his best friend is skeptical.

Despite the challenges, Randy is determined to tough it out for Kyle. After all, enduring a few scornful comments from his mother is nothing compared to what Kyle’s going through trying to quit smoking for Randy. When a hypnotherapy session designed to help with Kyle's cravings leaves him quoting Jesus Christ—in Aramaic—Randy’s parents are suddenly the least of their problems. Once word gets out, their privacy is destroyed. News crews follow them everywhere, and everyone who knows Kyle seems determined to make a buck. It’s a mess that could make Kyle’s dreams of wrestling in the UWE come true—but what about his dream of being with Randy?

This book was great fun and a very witty book. Stephen is a master at creating characters that you love and root for from just a few pages into having met them. Randy and his boyfriend Kyle are off to a great relationship until Kyle's past (life) is revealed. Is Kyle dumb as the "proverbial sack of hammers" AND the reincarnation of Jesus? Or is he just sweet, trusting and honest to a fault? Are we witnessing the creation of the Book of Randy? This is the first book in what I expect to be a series of books. The book is a screwy joy ride of mounting evidence that this country boy, Kyle, may be the second coming. Has Jesus returned as Kyle, a guy who'll kick anyone's ass that bothers his gay boyfriend? The book is full of funny and interesting situations that challenge the readers perceptions of Jesus and the book that made him famous and a sweet story about love and a "heavenly" pairing. This book will keep you laughing and grimacing as the evidence mounts that Kyle is more than he seems. Looks like we have another book continuing the saga of a confirmed batchelor and his closest disciples. I can't wait for book two to see what happens next. I'm guessing Kyle will be kicking ass and taking names and the Haters better get ready to meet their maker, because Kyle's pissed off at their attitudes and unchristian behavior.
