In this "second chance" story, Matt and Denny are stepbrothers who had a love/hate relationship growing up. They reunite after a four-year separation caused by Matt's mother. Denny is not happy when Matt tracks him down despite a name change and move halfway across the country, but he's even less thrilled to learn that his stepmother is still determined to either control or ruin his life.
The backstory is a bit sketchy but Kari Gregg delivers enough to make it work. What follows is Matt's own determined efforts to set things right, get Denny back in his life, and finally pursue their aborted relationship. Although three years younger than Denny, Matt has always been the more dominant and aggressive one in this relationship and he proves it once again as he...er, persuades Denny into seeing things his way. ;-)
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING DENNY isn't flawless from a technical aspect, but bear in mind that this story was written for the GoodReads M/M Romance group's "Hot Summer Days" event. And its short length left me wanting just a wee bit more (yeah, that greedy reader syndrome ^_^). However, the vivid narrative and smooth prose reminded me why I had enjoyed Kari Gregg's writing and stories so much. Next up--"I, Omega"!
Matt finally,finds his stepbrother, returning his trust fund and falls in love and lust with him again.
I was very excited when I saw this freebie showing up on Amazon's free gay and lesbian bestsellers list. I may not be a fun of all themes that this writer does, but I certainly think that she is a very good writer. And I really liked her contemporary story I have read before.
This one was certainly well written, but it did not take much for me to become annoyed as I was reading along and then angry.
I liked the guys in this story, their longing for each other was believable, reconnection was hot, but the woman in this story, oh wow. And she is not even showing up in this story herself, except in the guys' recollections, but to call her monster would be an understatement, I have to tell you.
There are for sure plenty of homophobic parents and stepparents, who will make their kids leave home and this is in itself horrifying to me, but unfortunately realistic.
But I just want to know, how many of those homophobic people will care enough to *seek the person who they threw out of the house, even if the person is living on the other side of the country*? How many of those people will care to make sure that this person will not have a place to live - on the other side of the country? How many people would care to make sure that this person would be fired from his job - on the other side of the country???
What in the name ? Where do all these monstrocities of the women come from in so many mm stories?
And before you ask, yes, this character angered me that much to warrant two stars for the story despite good writing
