    1. 4.5 starsAs much as I’m against organized religions in my life, I still find myself drawn to books in the genre that deal with religion. This was one of the best ones I’ve read in a long time with a story so detailed that I wouldn’t be surprised if it was autobiographical.The story begins with RJ, a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, going on his mission. He’s disappointed he’s not going somewhere exotic and instead to Portland, Oregon. He ends up housing with another young man [...]


    2. As an ex-mormon (born, raised and excommunicated) and a reader of mm romance, I guess it was given that I should read this book. I like to imagine some of the cute missionaries from my youth, having a passionate relationship in secret. I did see the movies and it is pretty much the same. Well both movie and book was "made" by the same person(s) who it should be expected. The church seems well researched and there was only some small discrepancies. It was an okay book. Okay written. A bit boring, [...]


    3. I received a free copy via Inked Rainbow in exchange for an honest review.I intentionally did not watch the movie before reading the book so I could give a more objective review based exclusively on the novel rather than making comparisons to the film. My understanding of the LDS church is also limited to the occasional missionaries at my door, so bear that in mind with this review.I'm usually drawn to books with religious themes, which was why I chose this one. As a story, it's decent--there's [...]


    4. Romances centered around religion have always been fascinating to me because I like to see how the relationship plays out around, or in spite of, the religion in question. The stricter the religion, the higher the stakes. Amish romances have always had a soft-spot in my heart—both gay and straight—and now the Mormon religion has made its way to my heart.I was a fan of the film Latter Days—okay, scratch that—I still am a fan and watch it whenever I need a good cry. When the film The Falls [...]


    5. This beautifully moving story makes for difficult and unsettling reading. The authors have researched the experiences of LGBT youth in the Mormon church with exacting detail and the resulting story is compelling and absolutely fascinating.The authors capture the naive innocence of the twenty-year-old missionaries perfectly. Even when the boys aren’t terribly likeable, they are uncomfortably recognisable. At the start, RJ and Chris almost feel like alien creatures. Their devout, robotic routine [...]


    6. Okay! Finally read this, and I enjoyed it. I feel like it was a bit shallow in places, which I think is a common issue with novelizations, but in general and overall, it gave me a good look into RJ's head. I enjoyed getting to know him and Chris and hear their opinions on their religion both before and after they got together. It's not the most fantastic book I've read, but it kept me engaged, and I read it quickly.It's been a while now since I saw the movie, but I'm pretty sure the book goes mu [...]


    7. RJ Smith is prepared to go out on his mission--an exciting time in the life of any young Mormon man. It is a time when one often learns much about himself while doing a great service to the church. And when RJ meets his mission companion, Chris Merrill, he knows he's in luck. Chris is one who knows, understands, and follows the rules, and he'll certainly help RJ adapt to the life of a missionary. As the two set out to spread their message, RJ finds that it's a bit more difficult to get people to [...]


    8. After months of waiting, I can only say that it was all worthwhile. Both movies, The Falls and Testament of Love are very dear to me. Few movies have moved me like these two have. So, obviously I was very excited about this book. And it did not disappoint me. It offers so much more in terms of providing answers to things that were left out for the viewers to find on their own in the movie. It's written in first person POV which I am not a fan of as it can easily rob us the chance of being inside [...]


    9. I enjoyed the movie, so I was excited to revisit it in a book. Though a lot of the book was the same as the movie, there was more added to it so that those who saw the film will get a little more. As with the movie, my heart absolutely broke for Chris and RJ. This book does an excellent job of looking into the Mormon church and exploring LGBT youth inside. I know several people who are Mormon, and while they are not LGBT and we do not talk about that, the rest of what I read was accurate to what [...]


    10. I liked it, but I had seen the movies. Just found out that a 3rd movie was recently done to finish the story. Wouldn't mind having books 2 and 3, if that's still in the works or not? I'm not sure.


    11. A story that tackles about the complexities of life, where religion and sexuality became the reason of conflict for the two young mormons, RJ and Chris. Easy to read and is a good book to understand how the LDS church functions.
