“Jagger’s Revolution” The boy book that takes a not so pretty peek into the gay dating life in Southern California – Kevin Hunter


“Jagger’s Revolution”
The boy book that takes a not so pretty peek into the gay dating life in Southern California.

Things have just begun heating up in Los Angeles.  Jagger, a strong, put together dude works out his dating frustrations through a series of sexually charged columns and vignettes.  A fun-laidback-summer book for the under twenties set who hate to read, but are looking to get off, be slightly enlightened or just plain dreaming of love.  Readers follow Jagger’s hunt for the real thing in a city that seems to be plagued of any honest human connection.  One nineteen-year-old reader described it as a rainbow book for adults, “…more emotional, but HOT!”

The protagonist is an aristocratic beach thug who rules by his scrupulous idea of how dating and relationships should be equating dating with going to battle. He’s strikingly attractive, but also a menace, with an aggressive disapproval for weakness and bad etiquette. His rough and interesting dating past prompts an editor to spear him into incorporating and transcribing his findings into a series of columns for a popular magazine. The author sets up a highly perceptive dark alter ego, Jagger, to deliver a not particularly warm interpretation of the dating and sex world, while offering a fresh alternate perspective.

He steps up to inform us all about what it’s like to be a regular guy dating in the current frustrating marketplace, offering much more serious complications in the way of hunting for romance. Jagger wrestles with assuming the stance of a guy-cockiness and all-yet searching for a balance in finding love’s peace.  He seems to have it all down, and believes he has Mr. Right in his eye line, if only he could speak to him.

The narrative is sexually explicit throughout, but also affecting in places where you’re motioned to stop and think. He finds exhaustion with going on yet another sexual or friendly excursion when he knows the guy for him is the one he can’t say more than two words to. If there is any light to all his darkness, it’s the pleasing love story, the central theme that runs throughout his disappointments in matters of the heart. He experiences the kind of crush and love one has as a teenager over Garth, the dreamboat lifeguard from Australia, with the boyish distinction and the killer smile, who he keeps running into in passing.  He feels an immediate silent connection with him and longs to get close.
