This is a beautifully crafted story that has a slow yet steady pace. This book brought out a first for me such as incest with a non-step family member which included an underage character. Even though I was uncomfortable reading some passages I pressed on and ultimately enjoyed the story.
Although this is fictitious, I wished elements surrounding certain scenes (father/son exposure) were dealt with in a more serious and realistic manner. This particular scene and some others showed problems with execution in my opinion. There are some spelling errors too but those items did not distract me from the overall enjoyment of the book.
If you don't mind non-step incest stories involving an underage character then I would check out this book. I give Never Mind the Genetics gets ***3.5 I actually DO mind the genetics but was totally into this book stars***
Although the blurb makes it clear what the nature of this book is going to be, I was still surprised that at much of what happened, and the suspense of people "finding out" left me damn near sick. In that same thought, my only objection to the story would be the lack of seriousness which Andrew and Kevin seemed to give to the taboo nature of their relationship, including their casual stance of showing affection in public. The story seems to treat this taboo as one would being gay in a small town or something. I'm afraid that is far too light. This is the LAST taboo, this is the taboo that results in prison sentences, foster homes, homes, and cars being torched in your drive way. In that sense, the atmosphere surrounding it didn't feel as realistic as it should have. Still, I highly recommend it.
As for style, I will note just one thing that the reader may find troubling. This story is written in the omniscient third person perspective, but the author doesn't not separate POVs by chapter or seen. Meaning, you will be dealing with constant head hopping. I mean, you will get POV and inner dialogue from multiple characters in almost every seen. It can get very confusing, almost to the point where you're not sure who is thinking what. Still, I say power through it.
Finally, to the author. Please, PLEASE continue this series. Even if you do get the ban hammer from Amazon, I will buy the rest of this series no matter where you sell it. =)
Boldly and daringly written, and at a wonderfully steady pace so that the growing relationship is as real as it gets (not jumped into....it definitely takes time and lots of communication/understanding), fraught with the humor and drama of everyday life, and ending positively, with hope for more to come. This is a book about LOVE, not sex (yes, there's sex in it, but it's displayed in the manner true lovemaking ought to be, with...well... LOVE!).
I've come to love Kevin and Andrew so much through this book, and found it un-put-down-able, even for its length. It is romance, family, passion, and love, all come together perfectly. Most importantly, it's a story that needs to be told (and read), so the world can truly understand what it means to be in love with one so close to your true self.
Andrew was very naive, and that was expected due to his past life with his mother.... But I had hoped that the story might have
ended differently. Regardless, it was a good read.
