A Serpentine Series Book

Shy guy Jed Carter has always felt invisible next to his charismatic older brother, Kent. Kent’s master plan for Jed is simple: University of Virginia, fraternity, business, sports, and ladies’ man. None of it is Jed, except for playing on the rugby team, which he joins in defiance of soccer-loving Kent. Jed comes out in his sophomore year and starts seeing Pete, an attractive junior, who uses him for sex and videogames. Jed wants more―in life and in love―and starts making his own plans. First on the list: getting to know Charlie, the handsome guy working at the local videogame arcade.

Charlie Ambrose has always felt like an oddball, and not just for his tendency to stutter. Being gay sets him apart from his African-American community, and as a “townie,” he doesn’t fit in with the college crowd. Charlie’s inspiration is his cousin, Morocco, who’s transgender and doesn’t give a fig about fitting in. Art is Charlie’s passion, and when a local videogame designer discovers him, Charlie’s living a dream. The only thing he’s missing is love. But the last person Charlie expects to find it with is a cute, white U.Va. rugby player named Jed.

    This is a coming of age story of sorts. You follow friends as they meet, fall in lust, bicker and fall in love. There is angst, humor and some happiness dust thrown in.

    4.5Jed Carter is the shy younger brother in his family and as such, has been following his charismatic older brother’s master plan for him – same college, same fraternity, business degree, sports and to make him into a ladies man. Aside from playing rugby, none of it is really Jed, especially since he is gay, he just has not come out to his family yet! Charlie Ambrose has always felt like a bit of an oddball – his father was black, his mother is white, he’s gay but not out, he stutters, loves art and for the college crowd, he’s a “townie”. The two young men cross paths seemingly by chance, but there is some kind of connection there, but shyness and uncertainty may not be their biggest challenges.The story is told from the alternating point of view of Jed and Charlie.This is one book of a series set at the University of Virginia and while I don’t believe you have to read them in a specific order, characters do appear in each others stories. Now that I’ve read this one, I will definitely be reading the rest! I really enjoyed the characters – main characters as well as the supporting characters. The experiences they encountered felt real and with Jed and Charlie, the words that came to mind were delightfully awkward! I mean that as a compliment, since there is so much they are discovering together that no one could show them what to do with their physical relationship and for how young they are, the vulnerability they choose to put out there, despite their fear. I loved that!The story has a steady pace of setting up the characters and their lives, as well as the primary supporting characters. For Jed, that includes his brother Kent, Kent’s bestfriend and Jed’s first crush, Tucker, his frat brother Bud and his coworker who becomes his bestfriend, Myesha. Characters that have their own stories also show up – Aiden, who seems to lead the out and proud gay crowd of U.Va. and Pete, a cousin of his frat brother Bud, who gets set up with Jed, but they want different things. For Charlie, there is his cousin and bestfriend, Morocco, a transgender teen who is true to herself and wants Charlie to be the same. There is also his Mom, his Aunt Tawniece who are his next biggest cheerleaders after Morocco, and his other major influence is Granny Myrt, the matriarch of the Ambrose clan who pretty much decides the direction of behavior and judgement for the family.If you like stories about first love, coming of age and young people coming into their own, I would highly recommend this story. There are some sex scenes, but as they are young, they are more about discovery and completely fit with the story. As I said, there are two other books, Serpentine Walls and Aidan’s Journey, that I will be checking out as well since I enjoyed this book so much!

    CJane Elliott has taken a highly interesting approach to this story. Instead of the heroes meeting during the opening chapters as generally happens in romance novels, the author keeps them apart for much of the narrative, steadily building the suspense. Although readers have to wait for that thrill which comes with the initial stirrings of sexual chemistry, this allows Jed and Charlie the chance to develop and mature. Each young man has his own challenges and hang-ups to overcome, but by the time they finally cross paths, they're more than ready to embrace their attraction to one another.Jed has always looked up to his older brother, and until now has been content to follow in Kent's footsteps, joining him in his fraternity at the University of Virginia, and embarking on a Business degree. The trouble is, Jed isn't his brother. He hates the constant drinking and carousing that goes along with frat life, and Business Studies just isn't for him. Far from sharing Kent's propensity for womanizing, Jed longs for a boyfriend, someone special to love and with whom he can confide his dreams. Someone like Charlie, the beautiful young man who works at the videogame arcade in town.Charlie has never fitted in. His nervous stutter makes him wary of forming new friendships, and in any case, few college students are interested in getting to know a townie like him. He's unable even to be himself around his family, since his sexuality flies in the face of their African-American culture. Besides his colorful transgender cousin, art is Charlie's one solace. When a local videogame designer discovers his drawings, and Charlie meets handsome college rugby-player Jed, a whole world of possibility opens up to him, if only he has the courage to explore it.The aspect I loved most about 'Sex, Love, and Videogames' was the fact that the heroes are equals in every way. It's a popular trend in the romances I've read to have one party be stronger than the other—more experienced, more confident, more screwed-up. Much as this formula works incredibly well, I found the compatibility between Jed and Charlie's temperaments very refreshing. Both shy and unassuming, both hindered by the expectations of others, they each have to carve out a place for themselves, and following them as they grew and blossomed was a sheer joy.
