Title: Loving Jay
Author: Renae Kaye
Genre: MM Romance
One thing Liam Turner knows for sure is that he’s not gay—after all, his father makes it very clear he’ll allow no son of his to be gay. And Liam believes it, until a chance meeting with James “Jay” Bell turns Liam’s world upside-down. Jay is vivacious and unabashedly gay—from the tips of his bleached hair to the ends of his polished nails. With a flair for fashion, overreaction, and an inability to cork his verbal diarrhea, Liam believes drama queen Jay must have a screw loose.
An accident as a teenager left Liam with a limp and a fear of driving. He can’t play football anymore either, and that makes him feel like less of a man. But that’s no reason to question his sexuality… unless the accident broke something else inside him. When being with Jay causes Liam’s protective instincts to emerge, Liam starts to believe all he knew in life had been a convenient excuse to stay hidden. From intolerance to confrontations, Liam must learn to overcome his fears—and his father—before he can accept his sexuality and truly love Jay.
Waiting for Jay.
Thinking of Jay.
Smiling at Jay.
Falling in love with Jay.
Coming out for Jay.
For Liam, the highlight of the day is seeing this cute, blonde and exquisitely beautiful guy on the train going to work. Liam calls him Jay, and he is mesmerized his extravagant looks. But that’s it. He may want to take a look, but he is not gay.
I just wanted a glance at his outfit to see if I approved or cringed over his style today—I liked the ones that showed off his arse, not that I’m gay or anything.
When Liam finally has the opportunity to talk to him, he is fascinated by Jay’s vibrant, dynamic and flamboyant personality.
Watching Jay’s overreaction to every situation he found himself in was more entertaining than prime-time TV.
They become friends, and as Liam slowly falls in love with Jay, soon he is ready to admit that he is gay after all.
I shook my head, laughed at the drama, and admired his taut arse in his red jeans. The guy was a complete flake and I was totally in love with him.
Loving Jay is a sweet out-for-you story. It’s light and entertaining, but also has depth: complex main characters, awesome secondary characters, a heartwarming love story, friendship, unbiasedness, tolerance (and intolerance), homophobia, self-acceptance, self-discovery, coming out, and family cohesion.
