The Dating Game
Bookreview / November 12, 2014

When I read about this book I thought it was going to be a bore. But luckily I was wrong…. Owen has never been serious about the whole relationship thing. All he cares about is sex, so basically his life is a long line of one night stands. Until he meets Nathan…. He has of course known Nathan for years and always had a crush on him. But Nathan always claimed to be straight, so it was never going to go anywhere. And finally Nathan moved away and Owen never heard from him again. But then Nathan is back and Owen finds he still has a major crush on the guy. And best of all, Nathan is now out about his being gay. He decides to pursue this, but Nathan won’t allow it. He agrees to go out with Owen, but for five dates sex is not allowed. They can kiss, but that is all. Owen accepts the challenge, thinking Nathan will give in soon enough. From then on, every Saturday they date. Just walking, eating or doing things together. After two dates Owen finds he actually likes this dating and he is falling head over heels for Nathan. And…

Jimenez tries to make his point by interviewing a lot of people, including the 2 men who are convicted for the crime. When the book came out it was heavily criticized and I can imagine why.

First of, let me start by saying I don’t normally read this kind of book. I am much more into the M-M romance. But a friend requested that I read this book and let people know what I think about it, so here it is. The good thing about romance novels is you can read them quite easily.
