Promises

Promises - Marie Sexton hanging on to that 3 stars by the skin of its teeth...Promises is fine. It's a decent-enough read. Maybe a good M/M cherry-popper for those curious.I'm not certain I was a big fan, however. It grew on me at times and totally turned me off at times. I feel almost like Sexton treats her readers w/ white gloves and is very careful not to offend. (BTW, would it kill her to use a conjunction? Her writing style is sometimes so choppy)I liked Jared and the side characters (his family). I even liked Matt (sometimes). I was happy that this didn't actually turn out to be a true GFY, but rather a coming out story for Matt. And I really liked that it was friendship that brought them together.I did, however, find Matt's leading-on of Jared a bit irritating. And I found his freak-out, Jared's "door mat" mentality, and Jared's fears and insecurities grind on me at times. Still, their love for each other was sweet and I was happy to see them together...
