Short and sexy M/M story with a bit of angst...

If you're unfamiliar with Kari Gregg but like M/M romances, then this free download of THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING DENNY may be a good way to try out this author. (See also the free download of "You Melted Me".)

In this "second chance" story, Matt and Denny are stepbrothers who had a love/hate relationship growing up. They reunite after a four-year separation caused by Matt's mother. Denny is not happy when Matt tracks him despite a name change and move halfway across the country but is even less thrilled to learn that his stepmother is still determined to either control or ruin his life. The backstory is a bit sketchy but Kari Gregg delivers enough to make it work. What follows is Matt's own determined efforts to set things right, get Denny back in his life, and finally pursue their aborted relationship. Although three years younger than Denny, Matt has always been the more dominant and aggressive one in this relationship and he proves it once again as, persuades Denny into seeing things his way. ;-)

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING DENNY isn't flawless from a technical aspect and its short length left me wanting just a wee bit more (yeah, that greedy reader syndrome ^_^). However, the vivid narrative and smooth prose reminded me why I had enjoyed Kari Gregg's writing and stories so much. Next up—"I, Omega"!

An intriguing read from the very beginning as it builds to the climatic suspenseful premise. Denny and Matt were authentic and captivating. Their love story tragic but sweet too. Overall, the story was well written, as the characters earthy and stout.
