For Tommy Bradley, a hand working on the Lost Cow Ranch in rural Texas, admitting his sexuality is impossible, even if his bosses, Luke and Simon, are gay—Tommy has spent his entire life hiding the truth from his homophobic parents.

Though a lot of things here were better than morning report, I have to give this rating. Much more cohesive than Morning Report, less sex (thank goodness) and just cleaner all around. Well written, and could have been a four or five star for me, but

I liked this but didn't love it. The author gets major bonus points for featuring two characters who are underrepresented in m/m romance: a black man and a ginger. Noah is a pastor of a fairly progressive congregation, and Tommy is a young ranch hand trying to work up the nerve to come out to his parents. The tension in their relationship was mainly in the first half of the book, and then as things meandered on after that, the plot seemed to lose focus. I liked both characters, though, and it wa ...more

This is the story of Tommy, a young man with no sexual experience, who is terribly fearful of his parent's reaction if he came out. He develops strong feelings for Noah, the pastor who is also gay.

There is a strong theme of acceptance - both acceptance by family and acceptance by the community. Tommy needs to decide whether having a relationship with Noah is worth risking coming out and the fact that Noah won't progress their relationship until he does, spurs things on.

Noah shares his coming out

Ms Brown usually delivers the most wonderfully woven of love stories - and Complete Faith didn't let me down. Beautifully written with Tommy having to decide what he really wants and the way the relationship between him and Noah progresses is heart-warming and excellently done. Not to mention we get to see Simon and Luke again! I know I'd read the phone book if Ms Brown wrote it - but Complete Faith is a must-read and one I know I'll be visiting time and time again.

I was initially concerned by the number of 3 star reviews that I saw for this book, but I needn't have worried. I LOVED this book. To be honest, there is nothing new here. The book follows the standard ranch series formula. You have the doting hodge podge characters that form their own family, the loving parents of one of the owners, the homphobic townsfolk that supplies the drama and the couple of the day. Classic fare, no surprises EXCEPT I really loved that one of the MCs was African American ...more

I love, love Morning report..I can't wait to read this.


Sometimes it is very scary when you love a book so much that you have great expectations about the sequel.
I just going to say, not as good as Morning report, and I leave like that.

Complete Faith is the sequel to Morning Report and gives us the relationship between Noah and Tommy that many readers had been hoping for at the end of that book. But it doesn’t give us a lot of angst and pain, or crisis, or mystery, or much of the drama that makes a good book great. So, this one is a good story that is actually a bit above average in the audiobook format

Sooooo ummm I liked this book less than I thought I would. Not that it was bad, it wasn't it. I was just expecting to love this book as much as I loved the first book in this series, and I sort of didn't. The big thing for me was that I never fell in love with the characters, Noah and Tommy were fine they just weren't amazing like Simon and Luke from Morning Report.

So Tommy is a hand at the Lost Cow Ranch, he has had a crush on his boss Luke forever, but now he has his eyes on a local pastor Noa

When I first read the description for Complete Faith by Sue Brown, I didn’t realize that it was the second book of a series. I really think that in order to truly enjoy this book you should read the first book, Morning Report. In Morning Report learn about the Lost Cow ranch and the fact that the working boss and the foreman are in a committed 10 year relationship. We also meet one of the ranch hands, Tommy, who is one of the main characters in Complete Faith.

Tommy has lived in the closet becaus
When I first read Morning Report, I was amazed at a story that had me on teeter hooks until the very end. Sue Brown delivers a wild, wicked ride in her follow up in Complete Faith. Batten down the hatches because the residents of Lost Cow Ranch are about to find that life is about to get more interesting.

I fell in love with the first book, Morning Report and found myself wishing for a long tall drink of water myself to sweep me off my feet, well wearing just chaps of course. But seriously, Compl

First off, Sue Brown is not a mediocre writer and I like her books normally but unfortunately that's exactly how I felt this book was after finally finishing it. To be honest I can't say I've taken to the whole series up to now. I gave Morning report a 4* review but even that was a little disappointing. With this one I struggled to gel with Tommy and Noah's relationship - possibly because Noah is a pastor ( I'm not a fan of religious themed stories ) and I did get a bit sick of the homophobic pa ...more

I loved this book; it’s a worthy sequel to Morning Report. I loved seeing Luke and Simon again. Tommy is a shy closeted ranch hand who works for Luke and Simon and Noah is a pastor of a local church. Noah not only welcomes gays and all minority’s he is gay himself. In order to have a relationship with Tommy Noah insists he comes out to his parents. This ultimately forces Tommy decide what he really wants, and I and really liked the way Tommy and Noah’s relationship progressed. I was really looki ...more
“For a man of God, you’ve got a filthy mouth,” Tommy said as he stripped off.
“Only when it comes to sex. Sex is meant to be raw, crude, and downright filthy.” Noah emphasized the point by pushing down his pants and boxers.
Noah dropped 'fuck' more than 50 times. At least.

I don't know. I just didn't love this one like I did the first.
I really didn't love Noah, he just bugged me.
Maybe because there wasn't any getting to know you, it just jumps to sex between them. I don't know.

I enjoyed this...not as much as I liked the first book in the series, Morning Report, but still liked it. (view spoiler) Plot and conflict were pretty typical of a story like this, and I really liked seeing more of Simon and Luke.

Altough I like "Morning Report" better, this is a great book. Ms. Brown is a great writer
Brilliant! I think I enjoyed this one more than the first in the series, 'Morning Report'. This will be a much-read favourite.

Complete Faith is the sequel to Morning Report which focuses on young Tommy Bradley, a ranch hand at the Lost Cow, who is coming to terms with his sexuality. The only person Tommy has confided in is his boss, Luke, someone he's had a crush on for years, but Tommy is finding it harder to keep his secret. When Noah begins to show an interest in him, Tommy yearns for his love but he is also afraid of the consequences of coming out. His fears are well founded since he witnessed the trauma Luke and S ...more

Rating is 4.5 stars

Let me begin by acknowledging that this is a sequel in Sue Brown's series which began with Morning Report. Now, having said that, I feel that this novel actually could muster a stand-alone title--truly. Ms. Brown gives us more than enough past information in the brief forays her novel takes into the history of Lost Cow Ranch that you are never left confused due to not having read the first book. Why can I say that? Well, dear reader--because I had not read the first book befor

Reviewed for Gayrotic Reviews.

First, this is the second book in a series. I haven’t read the first (Morning Report), so do yourself a favour and read the first before reading this. I’m sure that I would have become more invested in the characters if I had. There were many things that were obviously put in for those who’d read the first book that I didn’t find necessary to the plot. For example, the big scene toward the end where there’s rain
A nice cowboy story that fits in all the standards while introducing some new elements. Lovers of cowboy/rancher tales will probably like this, but I think I may be a little exhausted on them, although having the pastor in the story did shake things up. I didn't read the first in the series, but aside from not having any character history, I didn't think that diminished my enjoyment.

Although it's a perfectly enjoyable novel, I found everything to be generally rather forgettable. Gay

Tommy is gay, but he is firmly in the closet. He's never been with another man --has never even been kissed. His small Texas town is largely homophobic, with the exception of those who work with him at the Lost Cow Ranch and the congregation of the small church that they attend. A gay couple runs the Lost Cow, and they are the only ones who know the truth about Tommy, until he is no longer able to hide his attraction to the pastor of their church.

Noah knows what it means to be an outsider. As an
