Book Description

Amazon Reviews:
“Nothing could have prepared me for the brilliance of this book.”

“I laughed from start to finish; some of the one-liners are priceless!”

“Derick leaves all worries about controversy and blasphemy at the door and takes this comic novel where a lot of authors are afraid to go!”

“I practically fell off the chair reading it Tears were tripping me.”

“I sat down and read it cover to end in one go (food breaks necessary) as it had me hooked from the start.”

“This is one of the most humorous books I have read in a long time, every page made me smile and laugh out loud.”

“Hilarious and I laughed my head off all the way through it.”

“I read it it in half a day and laughed so much my face actually ached....”

“I read Unholy Romance! in one sitting as I couldn't put it down - the hook was fantastic.”

Unholy Romance! is a hilarious story about Jesus Christ’s second coming. His task, if he can manage to stay alive this time, is to conceive a new set of Commandments which are more relevant to the 21st century than those left behind in stone by ‘old lick-arse’ Moses.

For thirty days, Jesus must live amongst the human race as one of their own, adopting their ways, savage and all as that may be. By doing this he will learn to appreciate his subjects true motivations and so develop more appropriate Commandments. His only ammunition on earth during his brief stay is an allowance of three miracles. As instructed by his dad, God the Father, Jesus must communicate the Commandments to the people through a diary, which he will leave behind as the new Bible. It is this diary that forms the basis for Unholy Romance!

Above all else, this is a tale of an unlikely and ultimately passionate romance between Jesus Christ and Megan Milligan, a feisty, Irish phone sex operator and devoted atheist, as they struggle to come to terms with an unplanned pregnancy!

Anyone over eighteen who can laugh at life without fear of ending up in Costa del Hell!

‘I was in floods of laughter. A great read.’
‘It definitely shows a darker side to Jesus, which I would be delighted to take the credit for.’
‘I may yet take a libel action against Jesus for defamation of character. I do not have a drink problem and am not a rampant homosexual, as seems to be portrayed in the book.’
‘I have the inside track on the book, which I will sell to the highest bidder.’
‘I wash my hands of this disturbingly controversial page turner.’
‘I’d need to see some evidence that Jesus actually wrote this book before commenting.’
‘Go on my son!’
‘I could have done with this great read while I was lost in the desert, when all I had for entertainment was a bunch of ‘are we there yet?’ moaners!
‘It’s a great book of two halves…and a cover!

"Other samples on the subject of Jesus' return to modern earth have passed across our desks here, but none have shown such promise. I do think this is hilarious and would like to see it in print"

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Hudson read 30 Dec. 2012
By Deb L
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After having read Dysfunctional Romance I thought that Derick Hudson had a lot to live up to trying to compete with what was possibly the funniest book I have ever read and... He did it!
Loved this book from the minute it hit my new Kindle Fire.
Hudson has written of the second coming, with the challenge of Jesus Christ rewriting the Commandments with ones that are a little more up to date.
Read this book in a day and loved every word of it. The characters were just as you would imagine if they were to appear on earth, even the devil seemed to have some likeable qualities.
Jesus and his take on modern society and his relationship with the lovely Megan are very well written and Side splittingly funny but I could imagine if you were of a religious disposition you could possibly find this book a tad offensive.
Derick, you've done it again and I loved it! Can't wait for your next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughed so much my face ached! 24 Mar. 2013
By elliebo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second book Ive read written by Derick Hudson the first been Dysfunctional Romance was utterly hilarious,and this one Unholy Romance did not dissappoint .I read it it in half a day and laughed so much my face actually ached....

Jusus comes back to earth to save his fathers dwindling name and enters each happening in the form of a diary and re writes the ten commandments. His day to day dalies are so funny and each of us can relate to everything he comes accross. I Dont want to spoil the book so buy it and read it for yourselves you wont regret it.
Love these books and Derick Hudson is fast becoming my favourite author..keep them coming Derick..

5.0 out of 5 stars Another hilarious book from this author 12 Dec. 2012
By Nicola_1202 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book should come with health warning as I cried laughing quite a few times and ended up putting it down to calm down a few chapters in as my ribs were in agony! It's certainly not a book for the sensitive, but if you're not easily offended, or of a religious disposition, this really is a great read.

Jesus, the protagonist, is witty, a tad un-pc and his relationship with Megan is unconventional and amusing. God, Lucifer and the Holy Ghost are all crackers and their antics along with Jesus' quest to re-write the commandments result in a book that rarely has a dull moment and I can happily recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearly, this lad is not "right" 18 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
And just as clearly, this is a good thing. Wicked fun, this is. I was reminded of C. S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters", although, admittedly, liberties are taken in "Unholy Romance" that would cause some Lewis fans to blanch (at least)or go into full cardiac arrest (at worst). I've gained a new appreciation for the Irish wit, and it was appreciated even before this reading. I'm not much of an imbiber, but reading this made me want find a pub and try some of the lukewarm, dark, heavy stuff. Cheers...and laughter! especially for anyone prone to taking himself too seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Derick Hudson does it again! 19 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another of Derick Hudson's fantastic books.

Jesus returns to earth to make new commandments for the modern man and to restore people's faith in Christianity ...resulting in a few disasters along with some fantastic results. Both God (as a cat) and Satan make an appearance too and are joined by Jesus's one and only disciple which ultimately creates the plot for a very unholy romance. Very funny - a book you will not want to put down!

I stumbled upon Hudson's books after reading Dysfunctional Romance - and they only seem to be getting better!

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it 30 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book in a day, i loved it and couldn't put it down, it was witty and humorous, The new commandments made me laugh as i could imagine if the good lord himself were to come back to earth the first thing he would do would update a few things. The way the author made light of the different characters i thought was very imaginative, he even made the devil himself seem almost likable.If you are looking for a pick me up and a book that will make you laugh i totally recommend Unholy Romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius! 4 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read Dysfunctional Romance I had to download this book too. I was a little dubious - not in a religious way - to read a book about the second coming of Jesus as I really didn't think it would be for me. Nothing could have prepared me for the brilliance of this book. The "up to date" Commandments are actually "laugh out loud" funny as are the antics that Jesus, his dad, best man Lucifer and the gay Holy Ghost get up to - pure genius and a definite must read!
