The Christmas tradition continues….and to accompany The 12 Days of Dennis we have the video of The 12 Gays of Christmas!
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
When an unexpected package is delivered on December 14th, Martin is more than a little intrigued by the contents—especially as they’re from his boyfriend, Dennis, and come with instructions to wear them when they go to dinner with Dennis’ parents the following night.
And that’s only the beginning of Dennis’ suggestive gifts.
So what did I think?
The Twelve Days Of Dennis was built around a really cute idea. Martin’s boyfriend Dennis starts sending him sexy little presents, a new one each day with a short note attached.
Each chapter starts with the little piece of the carol….A condom in a jockstrap, two lace panties… and we see Martin’s reaction plus hear a little bit about what happened with the items the night before. It’s not until quite a way into the book that we actually meet Dennis.
I loved the idea but somehow it lost it’s lustre about the sixth day of Christmas – six gay ganders? really? It was still a sweet story but departed into the slightly weird. Dennis is a cross-dressing business man with lots of money but his ‘surprise’ Christmas party seems a bit eccentric rather than romantic. I sometimes think that less is more and this was the case with this book. Poor drunk Martin, not even remembering how the evening ended was the final disappointment. Martin – you really shouldn’t drink those Pink Flamingoes!
So all-in-all, 3 stars because the idea was cute to start with!
