2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 26 July 2004
By Roy Brookes VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had high hopes of this book but I found it disappointing. The central character is a post-operative transsexual woman and the story is about her attempts to find a male life partner. However, she has a habit of telling everyone on first meeting them that she is a transsexual and most men run away. Not really surprising when she presents herself like this because she is virtually asking to be regarded as a freak. Apart from that she is too perfect. She looks like a beautiful woman, has a feminine voice etc. She lives an almost idyllic life. There is no hint of the struggles most transsexuals go through to arrive at anything resembling a "normal" life. I know. My own life partner is a non-op transsexual woman and I discussed this book with her. She dismissed it with one impolite word.
There are also factual mistakes in the book. For example, TS girls do not refer to biological girls as "rg" for real girl as the author states but as "GG" for genetic girl. This is one among many errors which should not have slipped in. The author does not really know her subject. Having researched transsexualism extensively for my own novel on the subject, and living with a transsexual girl, I do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unique Love 23 Jun 2004
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
In SEX AND THE SINGLE TRANSSEXUAL, we meet Julie Lawson, a post-op transsexual, who wishes to be in a meaningful relationship. She has a wonderful job, is currently enrolled in college, has written a book and has a very supportive family and a select group of friends. However, her romantic relationships have not been wonderful. Julie finds it difficult to find men who want commitment, since most just want to exorcise their curiosity about a transsexual. After being in several unfulfilling relationships, Julie meets the man of her dreams who accepts her as a transsexual. One problem, he is "kicking it" with one of her friends.
Joe Joe Roberts is a man whose mother chose her boyfriend over her children, which left him distrustful of most women. Joe Joe has had his share of relationships but when he meets Julie, he finds it in his heart to trust her. It is also helpful that he knows about Julie's former life. They begin a romantic relationship, which blossoms into so much more. The question is, will he be able to sustain the scrutiny about his own (...) in order to forge a relationship with such a unique woman?
In addition to the relationship portion of this story, Ms. Hayes delves into the issues of marital affairs, "down low behavior", homosexuality and prejudice. The story explored the good and bad consequences of loving a transsexual as well as the insecurities the main character harbored. With heightened sensibilities, the author tried to dispel any preconceived notions one may have about a transsexual. Reading the novel was a learning experience.
Packed with drama, romance and sexuality, (...) AND THE SINGLE TRANSSEXUAL was an interesting read. The novel did seem to focus a little too much on how beautiful and how much Julie looked like a "real" woman to the point of being redundant. Julie having a size 26 waist and constantly refreshing her makeup was just repetitious. The reader understands Julie is a transsexual and should be viewed as a woman, without the details constantly being reiterated. There were a few sidebars that could have been deleted, but overall the character development and story were strong. The pace of the story was quite comfortable considering the subject matter. The novel must be read with an open mind to enjoy this special romance.
