Age gap romances can be good or they can squick the reader out. When one MC is basically half the age of the second, the author has to work to make the reader believe there is more to the relationship. Part of convincing the reader can be done when convincing a reticent main character. That is exactly the challenge Chris McHart meets in Never Wrong.
Never Wrong starts out as a sweet neighbor based romance between the very different Jeff and Dean. Jeff is a the late in life gay man who is just out of a decade-long relationship with a woman. Our narrator, Dean, is a twenty-something man just out of a somewhat bad relationship with an unfaithful ex. A drunken hookup leads to hurt feelings, soul searching, and an eventual relationship. Apparently another drunken night may have changed the course of Jeff, and thus Dean’s lives.
The best way I can describe Never Wrong is a middle of the road romance. There isn’t anything in it that screams out to me, either way. There is some stereotypical roles with the bitchy, narrow-minded mom and the less than stable ex. However, we aren’t given much time to appreciate their place in these men’s lives. The final, obligatory, conflict also left me scratching my head just a bit. Dean spends most of the story on a pretty even-keel. However towards the end, he goes a bit irrational in the anger and jealousy departments to create conflict that felt forced, for lack of a better description. More importantly, it felt out of character for Dean.
As this was the first novel from McHart, I am eager to see what they have in store for us in the future. I see a lot of potential in the writing and storytelling that, with some polish, will become something more.
I also had issues with the plot. It’s rare that I find a book where there are so many subplots going on and not enough words to have them make sense, but this was definitely one of those books. We travel all the way from plot A to plot Z with a jumble of plots in between. I think because of the lack of time spent on letting the plot points linger made some of what happened in this book unbelievable and unrealistic for me.
The advantage to this book is that it was well-written. I just felt as though the execution could have been done better. Had the entire plot with Cheryl been eliminated, I do believe this story would have been excellent for the length of the novel and would have fit the timeline created better. That was also the most unbelievable part of it for me.
I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.
Jeff left his girlfriend of 11 years because though he loved her both were unhappy and he need space to explore his feelings.
The moment Dean met Jeff he wanted him but thought he just wanted a rebound roll in the hay.
Jeff was really struggling with some hidden feelings but as much as he wanted Dean he had issues with the 20 year age gap.
This is a very sweet story. It started out little slow for me but towards the end picked up. There was actually a very memorable scene with Dean cooking for Jeff that had me rolling in the floor laughing. I totally fell in love with Dean. Though Jeff is more my kind of man…Dean won my heart. He is young, sweet, naïve, charming and all over a nice man. His personality really shown through the story. On the other hand. I liked Jeff but would have liked more from him.
The story line is good but a typical romance. There is a small twist that I did like the way that was handled.
So all in all this is a good Feel-good short story. If like a good sweet romance with a little twist, two broken men, friends to lovers and Older man-younger man this is definitely for you.
** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through http://mmgoodbookreviews.wordpress.com/ *
Chris is a new author to me and I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.
