Bret hates Valentine's, the day that reminded him of multiple failed relationship because he is graysexual. Why did people thinks he needs to show his love by having sex constantly? Bret is not totally celibate, but he is rarely in the mood for sex. During the Anti-Valentine's Day party that he organized, he met Harry and they got into a heated debate about love and Valentine's Day.
Harry and Bret simply clicked together and they compliment each other so well. Bret is totally interested, but can Harry dare take a chance at relationship with someone like Bret? Will their relationship doomed to fail?
I think this is an interesting take in romance and I like how they both worked out their relationship and make some compromise. I definitely wouldn't mind picking up a similar theme full length novel if there is any.
"You hate romance because it's tied to sex, but I want romance instead of only sex." ~Harry
Luck just wasn't on his side. Harry seemed to be the hit it and quit it guy. No one stuck around, and that just hurt. Men wanted sex, not that he minded, but maybe a little staying power would help at times. He was NOT opposed to relationship. Taking his friends up on the party of the season, Harry met the one man who could be right for him.
Bret was having an anti Valentine party.
Bret was different than most guys. They were ALL about sex, he was not. Falling on the gray sexual spectrum made it difficult in finding a partner. And after one too many times losing a boyfriend because of that situation, he held a party against Valentine's Day and all it entailed.
Both men brought so much to the relationship. I liked the struggle they encountered, and I liked the way that DJ as an author shared that struggle. There was no black and white, but mere gray. Harry knew if he was to have this man by his side, he had to be willing to accept ALL aspect of him and know that life would change somehow. And Bret knew if he were to accept Harry into his world, he had to take him, warts and all.
As a side note, many are not familiar with the spectrum of asexuality. It is a widely misunderstood topic and has been pushed under the rug and eyes have been rolled and it has become a non-factor. In my readings, I have discovered that there are so many areas of sexuality not explored. It is so easy to shun that which we have no idea about and move on. I find it better, and easier, to find out about OTHER things rarely mentioned than to be an ostrich with my head in the sand. Check out Asexuality.org and educate yourself.
Bret isn't totally opposed to having sex as long as it's on his terms – it just isn't something he really seems to want or need most of the time. Harry wants a meaningful, committed relationship and he's attracted to Bret but he has to decide if he can handle Bret's lack of desire for sex as frequently as he would like.
These two young men have a lot to work out in order to have a successful relationship but they find that in the end the reward is worth it.
Epilogues are one of my favorite things in a book and the one for this story is great. It lets us know how Bret and Harry are getting on a year after they first meet. While there isn't a lot of sex in this story what's there is really HOT!
DJ Jamison's stories are well thought out and I can't wait to read more from her.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
