Read The Preacher's Son Online Free - Jason Banning is a wreck. His leg’s been blown to hell in Afghanistan, his boyfriend just left him and took the dog, and now he’s back in his hometown of Pinehurst, Washington, a place that holds nothing but wretched memories…and Nathan Tull. Nathan Tull, whose life Jason ruined. Nathan Tull, who will never believe Jason did what he did for a greater good. Nathan Tull, whose reverend father runs a gay conversion therapy camp that Jason once sought to bring down—at any cost.
Nathan Tull is trying to live a quiet life. Four years ago, when Nate was a prospective student visiting UW Tacoma, his world collapsed when senior Jason Bannon slept with him, filmed it, and put the footage online. A painful public outing and a crisis of faith later, Nate has finally begun to heal. Cured of the “phantoms” that plagued him for years, he now has a girlfriend, a counselor job at his dad’s camp, and the constant, loving support of his father.
But when he learns Jason is back in town, his carefully constructed identity begins to crumble. As desperate to reconcile his love for God with his attraction to men as Jason is to make sense of the damage he’s done, Nate finds himself walking a dangerous line. On one side lies the righteous life he committed himself to in the wake of his public humiliation. On the other is the sin he committed with Jason Banning, and the phantoms that won’t let him be. But is there a path that can bridge those two worlds—where his faith and his identity as a gay man aren’t mutually exclusive?
And can he walk that path with the man who betrayed him?

The blurb really peaked my interest. I am not a big fan of religious reads to be honest, but that was not what caught my attention. When I read what Jason actually did to Nate....I really wanted to know how that would turn out...
I am a very big fan of groveling, and I was hoping to get some here....

I find that making a review for this book is a bit hard, I find a lot of things about the book very interesting but at the same time it's very hard to get past Jason's actions. In the end, I'm left wondering what were the authors thinking, not in a bad way, just curious.
If you read the...

Wow…do I have thoughts about this book. Many many thoughts. Unfortunately I am also in the middle of fighting off the plague and so those thoughts are not quite as coherent as I would hope they would be for this review. Nonetheless, I shall go on.
So firstly…Jason Bannon is a self-righteous douche...

The blurb does a good job of laying out what this story is and yes, religion plays a large part in the story. This book won’t be for everyone based upon that (and I should also warn that there are references to and on page scenes of suicide attempts) but those who enjoy getting into the heads of...

No considero que esto sea romance, debería estar indicado, aparte, es un completo disparate.

The happiest ending here would be for Nate to get enough therapy to dump both his awful dad and his shithead "boyfriend" for good.

A completely emotional book to me. There is much here that, if it resonates, will make you tear up and really think and ponder and question. I get why some don't want to forgive Jason - I mean I appreciate they have that thought. It's not about forgiveness though or pushing aside terrible actions...

This book…obviously not everybody is happy with this book.
I’m not sure everybody who commented has actually read the book or read it properly.
Why? Because it is a complicated book about a serious matter.
So I’m going to try and get my thoughts in line:
The people in this book are real – they are n...

I can't say this is my favorite, because I've decided stories involving religion (not to be confused with faith) makes me uncomfortable, but it is very well written and makes you think about things.
I can't even say I liked Jason or what he did and the way he thought he could c...

I am on the ledge of trying to decide if I liked this book or if I didn't. I honestly do not know which way I am leaning so I will just stay in the middle on this one where I do but I don't like it.
Nate and Jason are both young when they first meet each other. Nate is looking into college and Jas...
