Extraordinarily good gay literature. Great story line-excellent character development-this man knows how to tell a story. One of the best books I've read in a long time. There's suspense, betrayal, redemption, love lost and found. I recommend this book to everyone. You will not be disappointed. Really nice love story, on several levels. READ IT NOW- got it? :-)

As serendipitous timing would have it, I Read J K Brighton's Naked Hero - The Journey Away in parallel timing with the staging of the 2014 Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne. Consequentially, the story became very real.
Brighton's admirable use of Aboriginal legends have been neatly woven into the story to give deep meaning to the "Love of Man."
The tension of the story, which focuses on the Australian Open, is kept at a high level the way and ends magnificently. I was left wondering if the hero of the story, Lewis Macleod, really got the right man in Lee Porter, or was there true unrequited love when Scott Taylor walked out of the story?
To find out, I'll certainly be reading J K Brighton's Naked Hero - The Journey Home.

To echo the previous reviewer this was an amazing read from beginning to end. Lewis is a great character with a huge talent for tennis and an even bigger heart for love.

This is an amazing find. From start to finish, I was gripped and enjoyed every word. Believe me, this is an artist who will transport you to another world....and this world is the world of a top class gay tennis player. It is not though a book about tennis. That is merely the backdrop. This book is about a very real person, Lewis McCleod, the Naked Hero who, despite the pressures and hate from the gutter press, remains true to himself in his quest for the perfect man. I totally loved this book and the message it conveys. It is full of wonderful characters that are true and loveable despite their all too human flaws. The plot is wonderful and the scenes, forever memorable. This is a true artist that has crafted this astonishing novel. Thank you J K Brighton
