Undue Influence is a modern day retelling of Persuasion, but with an M/M pairing. Thank you Jenny Holiday for this modern version. That said, don't focus on the original work, instead just enjoy this tale for what it is.
I love Adam, who's struggling when his mom and sister run his family vineyard into foreclosure. And Freddy, ahh Freddy. He's now back in town as a celebrity chef.
It's with the use of frequent flashbacks that we learn of Adam and Freddy's meeting, dating and breaking up. All of these scenes are informative, as well as entertaining.
Adam's best friend, Rusty, is the car mechanic by day, drag queen by night. As the only one who seems to care about Adam, he's also the one who convinced him to make the biggest mistake of his life.
Overall, it's a cute story of second chances.
