Reading ➷ Paint The Rainbow Author John Harris –

Paint The Rainbow I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book OMG he has done it again Wow when the story starts you think you have an idea of were this story is going Then it takes a twist and your sure it is going in another direction Then it changes again It keeps you on your toes It s a story you need to read in one sitting as it is that good As Ryan and Mason st I had several problems with this story that I just couldn t get over The biggest thing that I just don t ever like is cheating infidelity I don t mind if a couple has an open marriage because he needs a fully complicit beard, but Mason was married to a woman who didn t sign up for that and Mason s actions showed that he was nothing but selfish I had basically zero respect for this character because of it And then, there was no real conversation of what Ryan should expect from their relationship since they very obviously had different expectations.With Ryan, I liked his conflicted feelings about his own sexuality as he realized that he was attracted to Mason Ryan was probably the only character in this story that I did like I was happy that he had enough self respect to tell Mason that he couldn

The Rainbow Is A Stand Alone Novel Featuring Two Insanely Hot Men With Different Life Stories That Once Told Reveal The Same Pain Can They Weather The Emotional Storm That Ravages Their Lives Will They Finally Discover Peace And Truth In Each Other OKThis is not what I expected from John Harris Not altogether in a bad way, just not his usual colourful storytelling Has he sold out to the mainstream Packed away his trademark edgy storylines and characters For this book the answer is yes but I still liked it What the reader gets in return is a sweet first time gay tale that follows themes for the genre Nothing brave or extraordinary, but a good solid romance and a good example of the genre It s short and sweet with a few hot scenes and a good solid plot about a virgin artist and a famous, yet closeted and married, movie star.Ryan works in an upmarket boutique on Rodeo Drive with his gay friend Juan Juan believes his gaydar is infallible when he tells Ryan that, not only is Ryan gay, but so is Mason Whitelock, the action movie superstar, who visits the store with his wife When Ryan first sees Mason he s affected by his looks, his smell, his ass So begins his realisation that Juan may just be right The story follows Ryan as his art career takes off, thanks to a benefactor and he and Mason build a relationship, despite Mason still being married.This is a well written, nicely plotted, gentle romance It has many of the requisite genre cliches including poor boy makes good gay men sipping champagne and eating caviar a romantic holiday in Bora Bora and the required angst, that comes from both me This was a well written contemporary gay love story about a man, Ryan, who is just starting to realize his true sexuality Mason is a deep in the closet gay man who is a famous movie star Meeting at the boutique Ryan works at, an instant connection is made between the two of them Ryans sister and best friend are instrumental in helping Ryan recognize his sexuality Being a painter, he is discovered by an art gallery I think this was a cute short story which I enjoyed While I found it not quite up to his usual work, it had moments that I thought were total John Harris One of my favorites is the Picasso influenced scene The thing that I had an issue with is that Ryan knew that Mason was married How that situation was handled doesn t sit well with me Also, when they hook back This story is a soft, sweet, first time gay romance If you are looking for something short to while away an afternoon this might fit for you I enjoyed aspects of it Ryan, the main character, the character development in general, the art references, and it s well written.The down side for me personal preferences I do not care for storylines that contain cheating within a marriage and that not only was written in but occurred in front of the characters wife not to my liking The subject matt This is the story of Ryan who falls in love with one of his customers in the ladies boutique where he works The fact that this person is Mason Whitelock comes as a bit of a shock as up until then he had no idea he was even gay Besides Mason is married with two kids so he can t even be gay.We follow as Ryan comes to terms with his sexuality and ha Ryan and Mason meet when Mason takes his wife to an upscale boutique for a dress Ryan is an aspiring artist and Mason a movie star who is still in the closet When the two meet , you can see an undeniable attraction Ryan thinks he is imagining things, his friend Juan knows better Throughout the book you meet Ryan s sister

very unkind to anyone he suspects is gay We get to watch Mason and Ryan find love, Ryan find success in his painting, but in all love stories there is a point where things have to go forward or end I will say no You must read this to fully enjoy this story There is one cha Title Paint the RainbowAuthor John HarrisPublisher John HarrisISBN B074675FZZBuy Link Teresa Fallen AngelBlurb The day Ryan
