A Stella Review: My Anti-Valentine (My Anti-Series #1) by D.J. Jamison

RATING 3,75 out of 5 stars


Jaded by relationships gone wrong, Bret throws an anti-Valentine’s Day party to celebrate being single and burn his ex-boyfriends belongings. Who needs a commercialized holiday that only serves to make you feel bad about your relationship status, anyway? But not everyone at his party agrees. The cute blond guy who could be a member of a boy band challenges Bret, calling him bitter, and the truth comes spilling out: Bret’s low interest in sex has destroyed every relationship he’s had and tarnished his view of romance.

Harry is tired of fast hook-ups and meaningless sex, but finding a guy who wants a serious commitment has been a challenge. When he meets the cute hipster throwing an anti-Valentine’s Day party, he’s immediately charmed. But when he learns Bret is graysexual — willing to have sex only occasionally in the right circumstances — he’s leery of making promises he can’t keep. He doesn’t want to break Bret’s heart or his own, but can he really walk away from a chance at real love?


My Anti-Valentine was a lovely surprise. I like stories and series like this one, short, sweet and funny. And with a different main couple for each book. This first novella is about Bret and Harry, both of them looking for the right guy and not someone who can’t accept and stay with them. Especially Bret has resigned himself to be alone, sure no one will ever want to understand him and his newfound greysexuality. But when Bret meets Harry at the anti-valentine’s party Bret has organized, something click between them and new beginnings can be built.

I found this novella well written and super easy to read, quick and with positive vibes. It was a joy to read it and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. It’s short and although I have to say too many times I am not satisfied with what I get from short stories, My Anti-Valentine worked great and I can’t wait to meet these guys in the next installment and the new couple too, who will be?

The cover art by Lucas Soltow is different, that’s why I like it.

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
