4.0 out of 5 stars Good Sequel 9 Jan. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love GA Hauser!! She is my favorite MM romance author. She is a MUST read for me. Her characters are funny, witty and real. This book is a sequel to Reunion which was nice since the guys were left unfinished. Jon and Trae were cute. I couldn't believe some of the happenings in Trae's life. It was unreal! My only critism was that I felt Trae wasn't as invested in Jon as Jon was on him. It was a nice end to their adventures and nice to have a cameo from Keith O'Leary. It won't be in the GA Hauser universe if it didn't have some crossover. I recommend this book but you have to read Reunion first. As I always have to say in my reviews since I have gotten critized for this. If you don't appreciate man on man love then GA Hauser's books are not for you. She is one of the best so its your loss.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous Sequel to the Reunion 9 Jan. 2014
By Richard F. Casson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
GA Hauser, the Queen of M/M erotic romance novels, has written several sequels to her previous books, but rarely starts off the sequel at exactly the place where the original novel ended. In this sequel, she does just that and it is a brilliantly entertaining continuation which deals with two men, Jon and Trae, who, having met on a cruise ship are reunited after a 20 year absence and totally fall in love. The problem is that Jon is an actor living in Los Angeles, and Trae is an attorney living in Florida and worse yet is married. However, when Trae arrives at his home, he finds his car in the driveway with divorce papers on the front seat. He is so upset he immediately flies to LA and into Jon's arms. Which is where the Renion ends. After only one night together, Trae realizes that he needs to return to Florida to face his marital problems and to serve his clients whose cases have awaited his return. Talk about long distance relationships. Jon starts to get some serious work in LA and Trae discovers that he is in a difficult and possibly dangerous situation with his wife. The book then follows each man's progress and limits their sexual activities to Skype sessions each night which are damn hot. But obviously not enough. Jon flies to Florida for a weekend to be with and to help the man he loves, and that leads to super hot sexual encounters without the need for computers. It also leads to these two lovers having to decide whether they are going to finally have a life together or not. As one would expect from GA, this book is wonderful, the two main characters are completely lovable and the sex is steamy. Don't miss it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bucking The Tide, I Guess 10 Feb. 2014
By Alan Arthur Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was far less enamored of "The Ugly Truth" than the other reviewers here. I'm not sure what they saw in this book that I seem to have missed.

This is the sequel to "Reunion", the story of two men, Jon and Trea, who meet each other on board a cruise ship after not seeing each other for twenty years, back when they were teenagers stealing a first kiss behind the high school. "Reunion" takes them from the time the cruise ends, up until they find each other's hearts again, despite the fact that one of them was still married to a woman. As it turns out, the wife is not who Trae believed she was, and causes all kinds of havoc before she is finally prevented from doing any more damage. That's it, the whole plot.

This book was highly problematic for me on a number of fronts.

First, it was not all that well-written. There was a lot of awfully clumsy exposition, such as: "She has never been handled for any violent crimes... what crimes has she she been handled for?" on p. 110. What the heck does "handled" mean? Honestly, I don't have any idea what she's talking about here. Does she mean arrested, investigated, charged, convicted or all of the above? This kind of vague prose (and bad editing) prevented me from "going with" the dialog and the forward motion of the plot - of which there was not all that much. Also, some of the dialog appears to be almost cut-and-paste repetitive, such as Trae's constant claim that if Jon would just stick some fingers inside him, he would be his forever. Which reminds me that I started to skip the sex scenes because they also rapidly became equally repetitive - and completely lacking in heat.

Second, the editing was, at points, almost unforgivable. On page 96, Ms. Hauser states that the heat "was enflamed" by something or other. Doesn't matter, the word does not exist. The proper word is "inflamed". Add to that a number of junior-high-school level punctuation errors such as, on p. 98: "...when you're flight attendant arrives" and "I'm still suffering jetlag" - which is supposed to be TWO words - and some sentences that were actually indecipherable because they were missing pronouns, verbs or both.

I mean, is it a requirement that gay romance authors or their editors be only quasi-literate? I may be particularly sensitive to bad editing, but I always hope, when I purchase a book, that it is completed and polished. I like to read. I love the written word. I just hate it when people massacre the language and still somehow, eke out five-star reviews.

But the third, and biggest, problem with the book was that it simply did not move me at all. No tears, no celebration, no joy shared with the characters. Just a story with a lot of sex scenes and the same explanation for their previous idiocies repeated over-and-over again (why Trae stayed in the closet). This just didn't work for me at all. The answer was: because he was a sniveling coward too worried his parents wouldn't finance his Law degree if he came out. And, pathetically, the most dramatic moment was when a teenager started to paint anti-gay graffiti on a garage door. Big challenge! Surprised they could overcome it.

This book even ticked me off after the ending. Though listed here at 233 pages, it is, in fact, only 189. The next forty pages are synposes, advertising Ms. Hauser's other titles. Although I've seen an occasional preview in a Kindle book. I've never before, seen an entire 40-page library of ads tacked on to the ending of one.

I don't mean to be contrarian, but "The Ugly Truth" was just not up to the standards I expect from top gay fiction authors. Obviously, many other readers seem to disagree. It's up to you to decide if you're willing to wade through some bad prose and bad editing to tie up the story from "Reunion". I'm not, so I'll be taking a bit of a vacation from Ms. Hauser's work for a while.

I loved this story, the characters are just as strong or even stronger than when we met them in the REUNION. This was a well written story in which all of G A HAUSER stories are. A MUST READ.
