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.
The concept of two character totally different who hook up with each other was a great setting and it worked fine. I really love the character development - and there is a lot of it in this short story.
There is sex in the story but the way how it is displayed is really sweet and emotional, I really liked it. :3
Harry is a really cool character and he is really understanding of Bret's needs. Something you wouldn't expect when you first "met" him. The way both compromise is really good displayed and it didn't felt forced to me.
The only complain I have is that I mixed up the names. xD Maybe it's because I connect the name "Harry" with a more passive guy and Bret sounds very "active". But this is only a personal problem. :D
I give this story 5 out of 5 stars. The way how D.J. Jamison challenges herself with writing an ace character is great and I really liked it.
