"Date Me, Bryson Keller" starts out a little stiffly, feeling mostly full of cliches with little depth behind them. This quickly changes, however, as the book progresses and you begin to get to know the characters better. The romance is not much of a slow burn, so if you're looking for that quiet, barely perceptible rise in romantic tension, look elsewhere. "Date Me, Bryson Keller" really shines in its second half, where it gets into the various characters' relationships more deeply, addressing larger issues and letting the main characters really shine as their own selves, faults included. Overall a good and quick read, one I'd generally recommend even if it isn't the top of the YA queer book pile. 4/5 stars. ( )

This whole situation honestly wouldn't have caught my attention if not for the way the author decided to justify why he wrote this book. I'm unable to find his original response on Goodreads, but in my opinion, the degree of similarity in actual content aside from the overall premise is irrelevant here. It’s not a mere “inspiration” if you take someone else's story, rewrite it as a supposed critique of the work and of BL manga in general, and proceed to profit off of your westernized bastardization without mentioning the source of your “inspiration” until people call you out on it—it’s called plagiarism.

If you needed an outlet to address your urge to fix an original Japanese BL story by putting it in a western setting, fanfiction was always an option. Or you could've explored those themes with a unique story of your own, without reclaiming the hard work of a Japanese woman.

Yes, Japanese BL has its fair share of inaccurate, fetishistic depictions of LGBTQ individuals and relationships that are far removed from reality, but it's important to realize that Japanese BL is written by Japanese women for Japanese women as a retreat from the expectations of a misogynistic society, and I'd laugh if it weren't so sad when people come along critiquing it as if it were written for a western audience.

I cannot read this in good conscience and will not be supporting his future work. I hope everyone who's read this story or plans to will reconsider their support as well.

Lovely story about what happens when the most popular boy in school is asked out by a shy gay guy. Bryson Keller has taken on a challenge to date a different girl every week as long as that girl asks him out. When Kai and Bryson are paired up for a drama collaboration at school, Kai takes the opportunity to test dating a guy for the first time by asking Bryson out under the guise of the dating dare that Bryson must complete each week. Kai is struggling to "come out" to his ultra conservative family and sees this as a secret way of testing the waters with his sexuality. As the week goes on, Bryson and Kai get closer and it looks like they are falling for each other when others in the school step in and Kai is outed by the editor of the school newspaper ( A girl who wanted to date Bryson). Complexities lie in the family's reaction as opposed to those of his friends and school mates. Can see how this might appeal to young gay people who are not sure how to broach the subject of their sexuality with their family and friends. ( )

Predictable but loving. The author has not learnt the concept of showing instead of telling but it regardless is a tubulently adorable coming out story ( )
