Reviewed by Lynette Fowlston for Readers' Favorite

Pairs focuses on the lives of four individuals who meet and have their own personal problems they are contending with, all the while living in the shadow of a grown-up fairy tale looking toward the happily-ever-after: a single mother eking out a meager living at her job; a carpenter; a math teacher who is not sure of his sexuality; and a stripper. Kayley and Adam are pretty straight. Alexandra has a dual personality, and Henry isn’t sure if he is gay, heterosexual, or a women trapped in the body of a man. Each must face his or her past and problems, but together they can work them out in the present and dream of a future.

I am not into gay/lesbian or bi-sexual relationships, and I had a hard time connecting with the book. I am not going to say that I would or would not recommend this book as everybody’s taste in books is different, and there are many who may personally enjoy this book.
