Coming Out – Jourdyn Kelly

Rating: 4 out of 5.
I read this off the back of reading Coming To: An LA Lovers Book. The MCs in Coming Out are secondary characters in Coming To and I was interested in hearing more about their story. Reading them back to back was a little strange – as the book takes place in the same period with many of the same events – but it really helped me appreciate the storyline further and didn’t detract from this book at all. As I said in my review of Coming To – I think you can read them in any order.

Whilst I loved both Hunter and Ellie, one of the things I liked the most about the storyline here is that you get a lot of time with secondary characters, all of which are written well and add something to the book, especially in getting to know the MCs. I especially enjoyed the relationship between Ellie and her daughter.

Both Hunter and Ellie have reasons to doubt each other, and whether their relationship will work, but a strength of both the characters and the storyline is how they work through these things together. Much like Coming To the topics discussed aren’t always easy and the book does deal with homophobia, but it doesn’t dwell on them unnecessarily.

At heart this book is a story of love and chosen families and how they face the world together and I would recommend giving it a go.
