YOUNG AND IN LOVE?

Young and in Love - Gary Garth McCann
Editions:ePub
ISBN: ASIN B07H9DTN2V
Pages: 78

Bawdy gay erotic novella aimed at male readers. Cal State engineering student Hardy tries not to repeat all the mistakes of his gay-supportive but womanizing father. Hardy is too young for a husband, but not too young to fall for bi Tom, or out Brad, or to move in with Sebastien, a French visiting economics professor who surprises Hardy by not taking him along to Paris for the summer—perhaps because Sebastien has a secret boyfriend? In Sebastien’s absence, Hardy works as a barista and turns to online hookup Dick, who is obviously not who he says he is, yet inspires in Hardy the fantasy of being husbands.

Reviews:Jeff Linamen on Goodreads wrote:

Hardy is working his way through that difficult journey of discovering not only who he is and what he wants out of life-- but also finding, or better, defining what love means for him. 'Young and In Love?' is a very sexy, fun reading experience. I like that author Gary Garth McCann doesn't allow his characters to get too bogged down with self-loathing and guilt but instead takes charge of, and responsibility for their lives and actions. I really enjoyed all the characters: Hardy is very real and adorable, Eli is a real trip and Jay and Wyatt are all out sexy. I thought Hardy's -- how do you say - obsession? with his father was oddly tantalizing. I sure hope there are more adventures in the future because I would love to follow Hardy's journey though sex, love and life.

I received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I’ve been honored by first prizes from the Maryland Writers’ Association for both short fiction and mystery. I live in Annapolis with my husband, Todd Garth, the first out professor at the US Naval Academy. We married on our 25th anniversary. As a writer, I use Todd’s surname as a middle name. The head shots are of me now and in high school. Can you tell which is which?
