Faith and Fidelity was a thrill to read. It was a solid M/M romance with a wonderful backstory and incredible supporting characters. ~ Under the Covers

I absolutely loved Michaels’s writing style. The pacing was great, the sense of humor was spot on and most of all, this book had a lot of heart in it. Evan and Matt are perfect for one another. I loved that they both started off in a bad place. Of course, I don’t wish what happened to Evan to happen to anybody, but the fact that Evan found comfort in Matt’s presence set my mind at ease. It seemed like a natural progression to their friendship and I loved that they sought out each other in their darkest times. It shows that love can overcome the steepest mountain. You just need to have a little faith.

I know that others had a difficult time believing that Matt and Evan were both straight men who, for the first time became interested in men. My feelings on this were the exact opposite. I felt that Michaels showcased their inner conflict well. Their confusion was evident in Evan’s self-loathing and doubt and also in Matt’s unease. There was a lot of back-and-forth action because, for them, it’s something they have never experienced before.

Faith and Fidelity was a thrill to read. It was a solid M/M romance with a wonderful backstory and incredible supporting characters. I’m sure Michaels will become a favourite of mine soon.

About Tere Michaels

This bio would be more interesting if I could fictionalize it...

I am an East Coast girl (Metro NYC to be exact), born and bred and with some slight princess traits. For example, "camping" is staying in a hotel without a pool.

Writing has always been my dream, my goal, the way my brain and my heart found a happy place. When I was five my mom got me a subscription to a Disney magazine and precocious early reader that I was, I immediately caught on to the fact that someone, indeed, WROTE these stories. That it was a real profession and from then I was locked in to what I wanted to do.

Of course it took me til just past my fortieth birthday to fully succeed by having my first novel, "Faith & Fidelity" published, but I've been writing for decades and whether or not I made a dime, it was always my "must do" thing.

In the meantime I've freelanced, worked in offices, managed a bookstore, lived in LA, starved and prospered and became a married mom in the 'burbs.

Right now my wonderful husband and my darling son and I live in a cute house in the NJ suburbs; we share our abode with three cats, a hamster and approximately 100 fish (warning: when the pet store says "they're all male!" don't believe them). Life is good and I am beyond grateful to my family and friends and fans who've brought me to this point.

This is one of my fave series! Even and Matt are so super sweet and I do find their attraction for the first time believable. Their trepidation in moving into a physical relation was written so well and all thier other worries.
