His Secret Life Book Review

Gay men don’t fall in love with women. Do they?

Philip is a gay man working for a conservative corporation. After his recent promotion, he needs a date for a company function and asks his sister’s new roommate, Emily.

Emily is an actress, waiting tables while starring in local plays and hoping for her big break. She agrees to be Philip’s date for the party, and soon they are attending one event after another together.

Philip and Emily click on many levels. Lines blur as the people they pretend to be start feeling like the people they are, causing a rift with Philip’s boyfriend Jason.

When Philip no longer works for the company, he doesn’t need Emily to play the role of his girlfriend anymore, but to his surprise, he can’t let her go.

My Thoughts:

His Secret Life is a unique story, one I have not read before and I read a lot of books. Philip is a gay man that keeps that side of him hidden. He works in the corporate world so he has to attend parties and such from time to time. Of course he pretends to be straight and hires women to pose as his girlfriend.This is where Emily comes in. Emily is his sister’s new roommate and she agrees to pretend to be his girlfriend.
Things were going well until Emily started to have feelings for Philp. What is surprising though is that Philip has realized he’s starting to fall for Emily too. I guess it’s true that there is a soul mate out there for everyone. Straight or Gay there is someone for you and when you least expect it boom there they are!
This book is titled His Secret Life. It makes me wonder though which part is his secret life? The fact he’s gay and pretends to be straight? Or Gay but falls in love with a woman?
I love romance novels and this is a unique one to say the least.

    So glad you enjoyed His Secret Life, Gina. The answer to your questions is yes to all of them. While writing it I couldn’t help but think Philip lived a secret life in the beginning of the book and at the end. No matter what path he chose, he was still the same man.
