The Charm 1. A Charmed Life

   (4 reviews)
Genres: General Fiction
Sub-genres: Drama

Life is tough when you're 13, and summer vacation is coming on, and then your best friend moves away. Your very best friend - your boyfriend. For Jesse, it seemed like the end of the world. But Jesse is about to have someone new enter his life - someone quite unlike anyone he has ever met.

Jesse is about to learn that sometimes what seems like unkind fate is actually - The Charm.

Reader's Note: This story contains overt sexual scenes between teens, and explicit language. If either of these things bother you, you probably should pass on this.

Oh to be that young.  I know if I had the opportunity at that age, I would have cherished the memory of all that youthful angst and passion.  I had to wait a while, because I was the one to move away and start again.   This is a well written story of youthful beginnings.  It is written with style and compassion.  It reminds you of your own transition from child to teenage exploration.  From your own private fort to your first discovery of emerging sexuality. The story realistically deals with this transition in a caring, reminiscing tale that displays the concerns and eagerness of the young.  Sex? Yes, but definitely not the point of the story.

A lot of people are chicken to talk about stories like this, but this is such a good series!!!! It is about being young and growing up gay, and this is the first one. This series is funny and crazy and I wish growing up was this good for me!!!!

This is a story of discovery between two youthful guys.  Don't let the young ages fool you,  Guys can feel every one of the emotions and physical sensations that are described.  I know some guys who started some of their sexual exploration MUCH earlier than described in the story, and all of it consensual, as well.

As Jesse and Marty get to know each other, they are also now looking forward to other things, including more "personal interaction."  These types of interactions happen at differing ages to different persons, but all have an impact and leave a memory.  

Good work, Geron.

Response from the author:

The Charmed series was based on my own childhood growing up in a private inholding in the Adirondack Park. There are some embellishments to the series, some modernizing to the story, but a lot of it is 'what you see is what we got'. :)

    You probably have a crazy and hectic schedule and find it hard to keep up with everything going on.  We get it, because we feel it too.  Signing up here is a great way to keep in touch and find something relaxing to read when you get a few moments to spare.
