    • Let me begin my review by saying that I don’t like to give 2 stars for a book. When I do so, I feel that the author deserve to know the reasons behind that rating, and that’s just what I will do here. In the blurb, it is saying that “Kevin leaves his heartache behind to pursue his long-time hope of entertaining as a drag queen”, that’s why I chose this book.

I was once in a similar position, and I had to take my medicine, ev [...]


    • The blurb for this book sounded intriguing. I love angst and the promise of drag queens had me. There are very little Queens and the angst was off the charts, it was more like self sabotage. Kevin has been in love with Raphael for years but the feelings are not returned. Raphael hates that he is gay and resigns himself to living in denial. He is so far in the closet you can see Narnia. Kevin, tired of having his feelings not returned leaves for parts unknown to start his life over as a out and p [...]
