Nic Starr

Nic Starr lives in Australia where she tries to squeeze as much into her busy life as possible. Balancing the demands of a corporate career with raising a family and writing can be challenging but she wouldn’t give it up for the world.

Always a reader, the lure of m/m romance was strong and she devoured hundreds of wonderful m/m romance books before eventually realising she had some stories of her own that needed to be told!

When not writing or reading, she loves to spend time with her family–an understanding husband and two beautiful daughters–and is often found indulging in her love of cooking and planning her dream home in the country.

Complete Faith - Sue  Brown This is the story of Tommy, a young man with no sexual experience, who is terribly fearful of his parent's reaction if he came out. He develops strong feelings for Noah, the pastor who is also gay.There is a strong theme of acceptance - both acceptance by family and acceptance by the community. Tommy needs to decide whether having a relationship with Noah is worth risking coming out and the fact that Noah won't progress their relationship until he does, spurs things on.Noah shares his coming out experience - it isn't easy, no matter who you are."But you're a pastor, a good man," Tommy protested. "I wasn't then, I was just a kid needing support."As in the first book of the series (which I enjoyed more), the story also focuses on the townsfolk and their homophobia. The men need to deal with threat and violence."Tommy, I'm a black, gay pastor running a gay church in the middle of the Bible Belt. We get threats all the time. Kinda goes with the territory."The story was quite enjoyable. I was worried that it may delve too deeply into religion, given one of the main characters was a pastor but the story never took on a 'preachy' quality which was good.
