I did not believe in the relationship between Konner and Aaron: in fact their first meeting creeped me out. If I were Aaron I would have gotten Konner out of my life as quickly as possible.
However, the relationship does develop and the story is reasonably interesting. Oct 13, Ann rated it really liked it. Konner is 30 years old and just recently sent in his DNA kit. He has been raised in an Irish Catholic household with younger siblings. What a shock when he receives his results.

Konner acted like an absolute brat when he found out he was adopted, he was just awful to his parents. Oct 03, Dara Nelson rated it liked it Shelves: for-blog. This was so intriguing and had a lot of potential but it fell a little short for me due to how clinical it was at times and at others the language was a little strange. The story is what I'd call a 'surface' tale - it's superficial and doesn't really delve deep into feelings or what's going on in the minds of these two men. This makes it feel a bit naive but it's still a worthy read and I did enjoy it. Nov 07, Charles Cohen rated it really liked it.
Sometimes the truth makes life complicated A 30 year-old man learns for the first time that the parents who raised him had adopted him at birth. Furious about what he believes to be their deception, he embarks on a journey to find out who he really is. The author writes very well, avoiding most of the cliches often found in this genre.
Oct 12, Crystal rated it liked it Shelves: mm-contemporary. This was an interesting story. The writing was very detailed, sometimes a little too detailed, but overall it was a good book. I learned a lot about DNA testing and how looking up your ancestry works and quite a bit about the history of the jewish background that I didn't know. My heart went out to Konner when he found out he was adopted and I was glad to see that he was able to find himself again.

Oct 20, Book-Lovin-Momma rated it really liked it. I enjoyed the story, although at times the scenes were drawn out a little too long, maybe too much unnecessary detail, and some of the word choices were a bit awkward. But the story itself was good, and the message was a good reminder about unconditional love. Jan 03, Barbara M. OMG, what a wonderful story, it was absolutely amazing!
Definitely a must read, you'll cry, laugh, and have a great lesson learned. Love is Love and there is no way around it. I absolutely love this Author and plan on reading more of his amazing writhing!
