Donqueako Jordan
This fresh new author, Mike Warren, has certainly started off on the right track. "A Private Affair" has first-rate quality reading. M. Warren gives you real life situations and scenerios that each of us can easily place ourselves in and wonder would we react the same way? This earnest book has everything from suspense, drama, action and even some comedy that will have your cheeks hurting from laughing. That is a great combination and when you purchase this book you will be so caught in the word

It wouldn't surprise me if Mike Warren gained a few enemies after writing the intense military drama, A Private Affair. I mean, what would you expect after writing a novel exploiting the undercover homosexual love affairs of men in the United States Armed Forces? Would you anticipate a huge party being thrown in your honor: "Congratulations on Revealing That Married Men in the Army Just Might Be Fornicating with Their Male Bunkmates!"

I am so in love with this book, the author recommended this in our FB book club. I initially ordered because the author was bragging, but he has all rights to because this book is off the chain. And Im not finished yet! I couldve read this book in one day! I like Mikes, combination of comedy, seriousness and craziness in straight and alternative lifestyles. You must read!!! It's great. I' only giving 5 stars because I havent read the end.

Sean Williams joined the military to provide for his wife and child. The initial separation put a strain on their marriage, but Sean was doing the best he could for his family.the legal way. With his new assignment at Fort Meade, only twenty miles from his home in Baltimore, things should get back on track. Should being the operative word. With his wife giving him the sexual cold shoulder, how long before Sean gets tired of self love and looks for someone to satisfy his urges? I don't even know where to begin other than to say I had a lot of issues with this novel. I'll attempt to review it without giving too much away. Shall we? I was never really sold on what the author, Mike Warren, was selling. Sean may have been married, but straight he was not. That was established from the beginning with the situations he constantly put himself in or allowed others to put him in. Ain't no way! So this was simply not a case of someone being "turned out." Now, I've never been in the military nor do I claim to know everything that goes on, though I'm from a family that is heavy in many branches of the service. I think I know a little something. I couldn't get with the character Cameron, Sean's openly gay and flamboyant roommate. Now when I say I couldn't get with him, I'm not talking about him as a person because he was hilarious. What I couldn't get were his actions on base. Dude was on the base dressed in a white cutoff wife beater, blue spandex leotards, a light blue boa, women's high heels and makeup. Another day he showed up to formation rocking a pair of pink heart-shaped sunglasses. Are you serious? On what military base are such actions allowed? It's not right, but what happened to 'Don't Ask Don't Tell'? I'm not saying that there are not gay men actively in the military, but to this degree when in general homosexuality within the military is frowned upon? In this novel there was even an investigation into homosexuality. What need is there for an investigation or to even question when you have someone as open as Cameron was? And why was he not thrown out based on that investigation as the commanding officer said would happen to any found doing so? I found his behavior/actions to be too over the top for this setting. Have you ever watched a horror movie? You know the scene where a character hears a strange noise outside and goes unarmed in the middle of the night into the dark, scary woods to investigate despite the news report that a killer is on the loose? You talk to the screen warning the character against the utterly stupid move. Well, put that on repeat and that was reading "A Private Affair." Sean, over and over again, walked into or flat out ran into bad situations. Situations a thinking or mature person would not put themselves in. Were readers to believe that Sean was that dumb and naïve or that his sexual needs made him do it? I'm not buying either. Other issues.despite high-risk sexual activity, there was no mention of safe sex practices. Sloppy editing. There were errors as well as inconsistencies. (Sean was 23 at the beginning of the book. When he dipped back in the past to recount how he met his wife, despite the obvious lapse in time he was also 23. Then back in the present he was 25.) Predictability and unrealistic happenings notched down what could have been a good story concept. Life Changing Books is definitely in need of a copyeditor, but I think a developmental editor would certainly do

I found the sequel (Sweet Swagger) to be a bit more engaging but this one definitely had its moments. Since I read them out of order, this one filled in the gaps. As the first installment it offers a peek of what it's like to be on the DL (down low) in the military. I eagerly await the 3rd book in the series. If you like E. Lynn Harris, then you'll like this book. Warren does for the military what Harris does for professional sports, only he's a bit more graphic when it comes to the sex scenes. A must read if the subject matter interests you.
