    Chase Potter has made his way onto my frenemies list with this book Chase is a very sweet, thoughtful guy, but he s also a great writer, so I can t help but dislike him a bit His last book, The Race for Second, was great, but didn t fill my spiteful little heart with jealousy the way this one did Remember My Name will probably be shelved as m m and that s fine, but it s so muchThis is a story about twin brothers who have grown apart and are forced back together by circumstance The boo Chase Potter has made his way onto my frenemies list with this book Chase is a very sweet, thoughtful guy, but he s also a great writer, so I can t help but dislike him a bit His last book, The Race for Second, was great, but didn t fill my spiteful little heart with jealousy the way this one did Remember My Name will probably be shelved as m m and that s fine, but it s so muchThis is a story about twin brothers who have grown apart and are forced back together by circumstance The book tells the story of the two of them working through sibling rivalry and sibling devotion over the course of a summer The strength of this book is the prose Chase Potter is an elegant writer and I enjoy his use of language a great deal As with his last book, I recommend this for everyone looking for a change of pace from the standard m m fare

    I m about to play matchmaker, so grab your dating card and check your hair in the mirror on the way back Before all that, let s get through the absolute basics Remember My Name is about twin brothers, one straight the other gay, who have spent the last decade of their eighteen years apart They reunite and struggle with getting to know each other again, unresolved issues tripping them up while they also try to make sense of other relationships both parental and romantic Now then, let s try to I m about to play matchmaker, so grab your dating card and check your hair in the mirror on the way back Before all that, let s get through the absolute basics Remember My Name is about twin brothers, one straight the other gay, who have spent the last decade of their eighteen years apart They reunite and struggle with getting to know each other again, unresolved issues tripping them up while they also try to make sense of other relationships both parental and romantic Now then, let s try to figure out if you and this book have any potential together I m not fond of shoehorning books into specific categories, and with stories such as this one, it s an exercise in futility Is Remember My Name a romance Not really, even though you do get to experience many typical elements like the excitement of meeting someone new, the rockier moments of uncertainty, and a few steamy sex scenes All that isa sideline to the main plot, which is about two brothers trying to come together Er, not like that If you re one of those twisted people who get off on the idea of twin brothers hooking up raises hand then you can stop wondering That s not what this book is about, although there are enough homoerotic moments between the brothers to fuel a number of fantasies No, this book is about family and how frustrating it is that we are woven from the same cloth and yet have so little in common Using identical twins to explore this phenomenon is inspired Chase Potter does a great job of creating two characters that really do feel like brothers, but are different enough to have their own identities The book alternates between their perspectives, which I enjoyed, although I found myself fonder of the straight brother than the gay one Go figure.It s inevitable with a new author that each of their books will be compared to the previous Only when their catalog has grown will each be taken at face value It s a rite of passage though, so here goes I enjoyed The Race for SecondI liked how that book left me torn up inside The pain the main character goes through is one I know well Remember My Name is about family, and mine is very independent My siblings are all much older than me, and we re not terribly concerned with staying in touch, so the plot of this book didn t resonate with me as much Here s where we play matchmaker though, because if you were unhappy with the ending of The Race for Second, I think you ll enjoy this bookIf you re a little burnt out on the romance genre but don t want to stray too far, this book is a perfect compromise If you re hungry for something new well, I can t say I ve ever read a book like this one before The writing is excellent, feeling tighter than the previous book, the plot moving faster You ll find some beautiful turns of phrase The seconds hover in the air like dandelion seeds, as though waiting for a nonexistent wind to force them onward , the characters are nuanced, the plot engaging, and you can tell the author put a tremendous amount of love into creating this story That s the sort of book I adore, and I found myself eager to keep turning pages It might not have knocked the previous book off its pedestal and taken its place as personal favorite, but I still had a good time reading it You should do the same and decide how you feel Ultimately, Remember My Name is a story about the power of love and the importance of commitment Just not in the way you might expect

I think this particular line gives a good overview of what s in store for readers upon reading the book. First, it shows the level of maturity and mastery that Chase Potter pours when he weaves his story It is always a delight for a reader to be able to connect not only to the author s characters but also to the littlest of details encompassing those characters To be captivated by how rural Minnesota is vividly described even just through details of the greenery Or to be filled with warmth by how summer is recounted or plagued with worry when the author depicted the ruckus of a thunderstorm Or to hear the nagging silence between brothers even when merely reading or the desperation of breaking their growing divide by analyzing what has not been said That is a skill like no other To be able to paint a picture with that much expressiveness and clarity is something that so many experienced authors lack today Reading work such as this is like getting happily buzzed on some expensive wine you ve been wanting to taste for so long. In conjunction with the author s caliber in telling a story is his unique style of writing The book gained good momentum from the onset, although I have to admit that it started to wane towards the end Irregardless, it did not stand in the way of Chase Potter s exceptional style of writing I love how he injected just bits of Jackson and Ben s past to form a solid foundation to the story set in the present It was creatively done such that there was still a sense of mystery and suspense in the storyline prompting me to want to knowBut it was also done right such that my curiosity was piqued while not actually bombarded with too much information in trying to keep up with both their past and present. Third, the line above definitely confirms that while there is romance, it is not the primary focus of this story It transcends the kind of love shared by two people who are not affiliated by blood It even transcends the kind of love shared by two people who are While this is about family, for me, it goes beyond that by allowing us to comprehend a bond which is shared only by few It gives us a realistic insight of what happens when that bond is unfortunately severed and the exasperating journey towards rebuilding the bridge that has been burned by time how our main characters try to understand themselves in the process of re establishing the lost connection with one another I ve also read I ll Give You the Sun whichor less introduces the twin relationship like here in Remember My Name And although both books are different in so many aspects I could go on and on , one thing is definite the relationship between twins is extraordinarily special.Although Jackson and Ben are identical twins and both narrated over and over that physically they are almost alike, Chase Potter carefully and cleverly lays out the many differences between them beyond the aspect of physicality all throughout the book Jackson has this strong and cool persona surrounding him which made him the protector in the eyes of Ben starting from their childhood years Ben on the other hand, is sensitive and had been living in the shadows of his brother for so long Both of them had their own idea of who plays what role in their unique relationship but the years apart and the changes brought by being far from the other made them reflect on those ingrained perceptions once again Similar with Ben and Jackson, I was also forced to rethink my impression of the twins as the story progressed I think this is really Chase Potter s intention To break away from the stereotypes and eliminate the line that we drew for ourselves It s funny that we call foul when people pass the wrong judgment about us but we are also guilty of having biases ourselves Acceptance, understanding, and growth only come when we rid ourselves of all these biases and stereotypes which for me was what helped forged Jackson and Ben s impregnable bond in the end.In conclusion, I d say that Chase Potter is a force to be reckoned with I am definitely looking forward toof this indie author s work in the future.

    This may not be a romance, but THIS IS a love story with an incredibly satisfying ending.The love in this story is that of 18 year old estranged twin brothers who have lived apart since their parent s divorce 10 years previously Jackson is gay, though not yet out, and his brother is straight As children, they were everything to each other, but when the family split up they broke apart The story centres around the summer after high school when Ben is forced to live with Jackson and his Dad I This may not be a romance, but THIS IS a love story with an incredibly satisfying ending.The love in this story is that of 18 year old estranged twin brothers who have lived apart since their parent s divorce 10 years previously Jackson is gay, though not yet out, and his brother is straight As children, they were everything to each other, but when the family split up they broke apart The story centres around the summer after high school when Ben is forced to live with Jackson and his Dad It is told in first person alternating POV which worked really well for me I really got why the relationship was broken, I felt the hurts and understood why it was so hard for each to get close to the other again It wasn t just a nickname It meant all of what Jackson was to me He was my Jacks He was there for me whenever I needed him, my partner in crime, my best friend, my twin brother He was everything to me But none of that s true any He knows it and so do I It s a very difficult summer for both Jackson and Ben but eventually they start to find each other again There were many times when I just wanted to yell at them to just talk about things properly However, I got why they couldn t do that But once they finally understood each other again, they realized how strong their love for each other is and the bond between them becomes as solid as when they were children To me, this is just as, or , satisfying than a romantic HEA because at that age, boyfriends girlfriends come and go, but the deep bond between the brothers will continue for the rest of their lives By the end of the book, I just know that these guys are going to make it and be happy in life because they are always going to be there for each other I highly recommend this to anyone who loves coming of age stories, young adult m m fiction and stories about mending broken family relationships

    I d never heard of Chase Potter before It was Jay Bell s review of this book appearing on my feed that piqued my interest After reading Remember My Name, you can add me to the growing list of Potter fans Let s start with the characters All of these characters felt like real people They weren t over the top or too great to be real They had flaws but at the same time were well developed And don t even get me started on Benny and Jacks I fell in love with these boys I just wanted to hug ea I d never heard of Chase Potter before It was Jay Bell s review of this book appearing on my feed that piqued my interest After reading Remember My Name, you can add me to the growing list of Potter fans Let s start with the characters All of these characters felt like real people They weren t over the top or too great to be real They had flaws but at the same time were well developed And don t even get me started on Benny and Jacks I fell in love with these boys I just wanted to hug each of them and tell them everything was going to work out.The dialogue in this story was excellent It didn t feel forced I didn t cringe when I read the conversations between the characters They felt natural The ebb and flow between dialogue and narrative made for a well paced read There were so many things to like about this book that I feel like I could go on and on I read this book in a matter of two days and that was only because other matters forced me to put it down Otherwise it would have been one day I m glad I gave this book a chance

    When I had read Chase Potter s first book The Race For Second , I ve been very impressed by his ability and knowledge in creating believable, genuine characters and their surroundings I was curious, if he d be able to do the same in his second book and I have to say it just so Wow, well done again, Chase This is not the usual m m romance, just to say that in the beginning If you want two better than good guys getting their HEA, you ll find out, this is not going to happen in this book But When I had read Chase Potter s first book The Race For Second , I ve been very impressed by his ability and knowledge in creating believable, genuine characters and their surroundings I was curious, if he d be able to do the same in his second book and I have to say it just so Wow, well done again, Chase This is not the usual m m romance, just to say that in the beginning If you want two better than good guys getting their HEA, you ll find out, this is not going to happen in this book But I still would encourage you to read it It s a wonderfully written book that shows great writing skills Each character is unique and subtly well crafted The book itself is a lot about growing up, finding out who you are and what you want.Jackson and Ben had been inseparable as kids, twin brothers who were very different but had their backs Then the unimaginable happened, their parents were getting divorced and circumstances were leading to their separation Jackson is growing up with his father, not seeing Ben again Then, during summer break years later, when Jackson actually wants to explore being gay and his sexuality with Matt, a guy only two years older than him, Ben is kind of forced back on him Neither of the two brothers is very comfortable with the situation While being apart, living very different lives, they had been able to cope with the loss of the other but when living together again, they realize how much they missed the way things had been but they don t seem to be able to go back to their former closeness Too much has happened or even worse not happened and had been left unspoken I ve read this book as a Betareader New Adult, Young Adult or whatever you want to call it, books about growing up aren t my usual reading material But as said before, the sheer beauty and skill of Chase s first book made me agree to read this one and I m very, very happy that I could do this.If you are looking for a book that doesn t cater to the growing mass of all the same books but has substance, complex human characters, well crafted atmosphere and is skillfully written try this one And while it doesn t have a HEA, it certainly doesn t need one The end is nonetheless a good one

    Wow I didn t expect this one to be as good as it turned out to be My expectation was for a fairly light, fluffy read But almost everything about this is exceedingly well done My first reaction was to the cover I love the cover art The brooding teen male is a good representation of the two main lead characters of the story The story itself had me engaged from the start, but when it turned about that Jackson had an identical twin brother and that the two of them had been separated nearly Wow I didn t expect this one to be as good as it turned out to be My expectation was for a fairly light, fluffy read But almost everything about this is exceedingly well done My first reaction was to the cover I love the cover art The brooding teen male is a good representation of the two main lead characters of the story The story itself had me engaged from the start, but when it turned about that Jackson had an identical twin brother and that the two of them had been separated nearly ten years earlier as part of their parents nasty separation and divorce, the story suddenly became evenengaging for me Jackson has his own issues as a closeted gay guy living with and working for his father in the family greenhouse He s very alone and he s terribly lonely, until he meets Matt and they have a tentative advance retreat type of relationship Here is the one place where I fault the author I cannot picture a teenaged male with buckets of testosterone coursing through his bloodstream refusing sex like Jackson did That part did not fit the rest of the picture of Jackson.Benjamin, Jackson s identical twin brother, gets shipped to Minnesota to spend the summer with his father and his long estranged brother, much against his wishes His mother has to leave on a multi month business trip and even though he s eighteen, she wants him to have supervision while she s out of the country for such an extended period of time Ben gets to Minnesota with an attitude, which isn t helped when he finds out that Jackson seems to be mad at him and disdainful of him He s evenannoyed when he learns that he has to work at the greenhouse doing hard manual labor every day of the week But its there that he meets a girl he really likes and finally works up the urge to ask out The problem is that he s so focused on why Jackson is mad at him and the mistakes that he sees Jackson making with Matt, that he isn t able to focus sufficiently on her and they go their separate ways.At first, Ben seems like a spoiled brat, but I still felt for him and for the situation he d been dumped in that was completely outside of his control To go from living in Los Angeles to living in rural Minnesota with next to no warning must have been brutal, and the author conveys this sense of loss, longing, and the fish out of water feeling Ben was experiencing Ben increasingly tries to make peace with Jackson because he s really missed the guy who for years was his best friend, the guy who knew him as well as he knew himself But Jackson is angry He s angry that Ben and his mom left him years ago with an angry, abusive father who took out his frustrations about his marriage failing on his innocent son Ben is angry and that anger has built over the nearly ten years they d been separated It takes Ben a lot of work to get that from Jackson and to finally persuade him that Ben didn t do it, but the separation was inflicted on them and that neither of them had any control over the situation They were kids and had no choice.Things spiral downward for Jackson and I really felt for him as he watched everything fall apart He s accidentally outed to the entire town when someone overhears a private conversation, the guy he d been sort of seeing for two summers turns out to be a schmuck who uses him but intends to return to his real boyfriend at the end of summer But as things go to hell so quickly, it gives Ben the entry into what s been happening to Jackson and why he s so mad When Ben sees what Jackson has had to endure, the non stop psychological torture, the constant belittling his father heaps upon him, the occasional physical abuse, he decides he can t leave Jackson behind and together they take off If you want to know , you ll just have to red the book Trust me, its a good read with great main characters.I was a little unsure why the author included the little old lady who shopped at the greenhouse, but she appeared numerous times It wasn t clear what her role was
