    A Secret Life NonethelessThis was one of the most heart wrenching stories I ve read in a while I was not fully prepared for the emotional impact this story would have on my psyche I was not fully prepared to put myself in the shoes of Phillip and live his struggles The impact of a gay man s struggles The need to feel normal, whatever normal is I was not prepared for the sheer magnitude of Phillip s struggles to be okay with the man he chosen to have as his boyfriend When Phillip was forced to have a fake date for his job, he met Emily Emily was his sister s flatmate Sarah suggested that Emily pose as his fake girlfriend to help Phillip get an account signed Once he was successful, Phillip and Emily found themselves having to play the game on a few occasions The Vegas trip was when things changed for Emily and Phillip They were never the same after that trip Their life changed and Phillip s ultimate struggles began This story was a fasc...

    Oh What a tangled web we weave, when we first practice to deceive This quote was fitting for this story His Secret Life by Kim Cano is a thought provoking story about finding love in the most unexpected place It touches on the very sensitive topic of homosexuality It is not your typical love story It highlights the struggles, discrimination, and temptations that homosexuals face on a day to day basis This is a story about a young and upcoming professional whose main focus is establishing his career as an investment advisor Phillip knows without a doubt that he is gay, however, he not comfortable letting others know about his sexual orientation, as he is afraid of the backlash that is likely to occur as a result of persons knowing Added to this, he is a disappointment to his father because he is gay and as such their relationship is on rocky ground Phillip deceived his employer, coworkers, and clients into believing that he was heterosexual, which did not go down too well with his current boyfriend He carried out this deception by hiring call girls to act as his date for major black tie events hosted by his employer When an unexpected event came up and he found himself without a date, his sister s roommate Emily agreed to help him out What follows is a series of intriguing events.The story, which was well written, was based on characters that were well developed and relatable Phillip had difficulty reconciling his feelings f...

    I read this book for my book club We chose it after seeing the high ratings it received on Goodreads but not realizing there were only 19 reviews This book was disappointing in so many ways It had the potential of stating a very powerful message, that there are no boundaries or rules when it comes to love That anyone can fall in love with anyone no matter their sexual orientation This book failed miserably to portray that message.Phillip is a young, successful, attractive man that hides the fact that he is gay from almost everyone in his life, especially from everyone in his professional life Emily is a gorgeous struggling actress who lives with Phillips sister When Phillip asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend for work functions, Emily s feeling quickly become real.I enjoyed the beginning of this book because anyone can relate to the heartbreak of loving someone who doesn t love you back I felt Emily s pain of missing Phillip but realizing that she couldn t have him in her life because it was too difficult This was when the book turned for me All of a sudden, everything began to fall too perfectly into place Once Phillip realized his love for Emily, they rushed into a whirlwind romance which lead to marriage and children right away The part that bothered me was that every time another gay character was introduced, both Emily and Phillip worried Phillip would cheat or have ...

    It was lovely to read such a different story on love and the difficulties faced by both sides I m aware of a couple of gay men who had previously been happily married for years before coming out, but I have never come across a gay man falling in love with a woman and consider changing his whole life, so I was completely intrigued by the story.Philip works hard in the corporate world, his work and his separate life are completely separate, not really by choice but the fear of what would happen if they knew he was gay, regardless of his skills A lot of pressure is put on his relationship with Jason as they are only allowed to enjoy their relationship behind close doors To make matters worse he now needs a female partner to accompany him on his works do to keep his secret going Luckily for Philip his sister, Sarah, introduces him to her flatmate and jobbing actress Emily to play the part for the evening They hit it off straight way and the pretend couple keep the charade going for work commitments, but can it last Emily realizes th...

    I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.This is the second book by Kim Cano I have read and after reading the synopsis I could not wait to see how this story was going to play out.Phillip is a closet gay man who hides his life from his co workers in order to succeed within the company Once he gets a promotion he has been after, he realises that he needs a girlfriend to accompany him to functions etc Enter Emily, she is roommates with Phillip s sister and accepts to play the role of his girlfriend to a company dinner They are both doing it out of necessity but neither thought that they would fall for each other.I loved Emily and thought the way Phillip treated her sometimes was a bit shocking, all in the name of protecting his image at work But once he is discovered k...

    I am a fan of Kim Cano s books, with Eighty and Out being one of my favorites of hers I wasn t sure what I would think of His Secret Life but I gave it a shot and I am glad that I did Philip is gay and falls in love with Emily after hiring her to act at his girlfriend for his work events, because he was too scared to come out to the people he worked with As the saying goes, What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas Philip and Emily were sent to Vegas to meet with a big new potential client for Philip, and while there, had a few too many times, and a good time This was when they fell in love with each other While it did take them a little bit of time after this to admit their feelings, or should I say, for Philip to admit his feelings, because Emily blurted it out to him at a party his sister threw The plot was certainl...
