Book: Loving Jay
Author: Renae Kaye
Genre: Contemporary M/M romance
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
I found this totally enjoyable, funny, and sweet. There’s a bit of sadness as well, but that only makes it a richer story. Jay’s a flamboyantly gay boy and Liam’s just an average Australian guy who just happens to be completely taken with Jay. I’m glad this didn’t turn out to be a “gay for you” but rather a discovery of identity for Liam, who has to deal with a father who can’t imagine any of his five sons being gay. Everything in this book was integrated together well: the romance, humor, and even some danger and a daring rescue.
I haven’t found too many Aussie writers in the M/M genre, so I find the voice and the location refreshing. All in all, this was an excellent debut book from a new M/M author.
