I discovered Timothy James Beck one day while looking for a new book to read. I was at the Sci-Fi section of National Bookstore and I found an odd book that seems to be misplaced. It was Timothy James Beck’s first book: It Had To Be You. I enjoyed it thoroughly because it is the first real gay romance story I have read. I have read other is in the past but they always turn out to be gay porn disguised as a gay novel. In contrast, It Had to be You fleshed out it’s characters – every one of them – even it’s setting which is the City of New York was a fully developed character.
Last weekend, I revisited all of three stories. This time, I asked myself – who among the three characters can I closely be associated with?
Am I Daniel, the actor?
Am I Adam, the geek?
Or Am I Blaine, the businessman?
In the end, I realize that I’m all three of them – and maybe that’s why I liked the series so much.
I found out that, Timothy James Beck has come up with a new chapter to the series: When You Don’t See Me. I can’t wait to read it.
