I'm wavering between 2 and 3 stars on this one.
It's me really. First I should know better than to read first person and this was really first person.
The story was very, very cute to the point of cutesy. Maybe it's just not fair of me to have an opinion on something so sugary after reading so many angsty, edgy, dark things lately.
The writing was fine, very fast paced and enjoyable enough but there was much to be desired. There was practically no character development, no relationship development and not much of a back story either. The point of the story was for the MC to come out and although he did it was just pretty anti-climatic. There was some build up that he would have to come out to his parents and that just never even developed.
There was also some build up for the MC to bottom and give himself over to his partner but we only had a glimpse of that and it wasn't very fulfilling.
In the end this just felt like an outline for the complete story yet to come. Again, I sort of take the blame for this one as maybe I just wasn't in the right place for this story at this time. I will take a look at Mr. Day's other books as I think his writing style was agreeable to me unless it's always first person.
My tummy zinger scale = 1. When the "I love you(s)" were spoken that moment really worked for me.
