On My Knees - Tristram La Roche Mark has earned his mid-life crisis. On My Knees begins with Mark and his wife in a heated argument with her pulling a knife on him. It's no wonder that the poor guy is a card carrying alcoholic. Rather than remain in his house while his wife is on a rampage, Mark decides to go work out at his health club. There he meets Attila, a beautiful gay man who reminds Mark of desires he has spent his whole life trying to keep in the closet.

I didn't think that I was going to enjoy this book. All I could see at first was this weak little man all set to cheat on his wife. But, as I read on, I began to root for him. It was sweet to watch him get in touch with not only his orientation, but his personhood.

Would I change anything...maybe I'd let Mark explore a bit more before I gave him a happily ever after. But, all in all...I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it.
