Printed Guidebooks: Can Frommer's Be Successful Again?
Andy who is this guy fed up with the world. This guy that despite what he tells himself to get the job done and survive yet another day, hates it with all his might. God, what a man, what a character. Impossible not to love, impossible not to care for this one. A man whom life has elbowed right in the face repeatedly and still stands tall, and still smiles, and still goes on. Harden, good old American boy, damn lovable.
The story is a bit wild in my head because of how very cool Harden was and how very in stride he took things. In a way it was hilarious, in another somehow surreal. Really it should be boring for me. That was not only unbelievable but ridiculous in some ways. But thank God the previous and the rest of the book more than made up for that one scene.
And God the intimate scenes between the pair, yeah, hot and sweet and familiar and yeah, repeating myself I know, but I loved it. Recommend it? Hell yeah! Wonderful read, totally worth it. View all 4 comments. Sometimes, when I read a book, it's like the words relax me, like laying back in a hammock in a warm summer breeze. As the story progresses, it takes the "mile a minute" pace of Chicago and gradually slows it down to something that is just more relaxed. I don't really know how to describe it any better than that.
This novel is about the complex relationship between two men, Harden and Andy. Harde Sometimes, when I read a book, it's like the words relax me, like laying back in a hammock in a warm summer breeze. Harden was married to Andy's sister years before this book began. While reading the book, the reader learns what happened to the ex-wife. Harden has two kids, Mason and Olivia, and they all live in a farmhouse in rural Iowa. Andy lives in Chicago, and runs a unique guided tour service of gangland areas in the south side of Chicago.
He has a generally unfulfilling relationship with a closeted police officer named Ken, but it is clear that something is missing in his life. Circumstances develop the require Andy to get out of Chicago for a time, so he calls his brother-in-law, Harden who he hasn't spoken to in years , to see if he can come for a visit. That is the basic set-up for the book. Throughout the book, these two main characters are trying to understand their own lives, but over time, it becomes crystal clear that these two men belong together. The two kids know that Harden and Andy should be a couple.
I think that the kids acknowledge that these two men are their "parents" long before the two adults can acknowledge that fact. As I was reading each page, I found myself becoming more and more immersed in the lives of this little Iowa family -- longing for the simplicity and love that is presented to them every day. The author writes from the heart, and I simply do not understand any reader saying that there was no love and sex in this book.
It is certainly true that the story is not driven forward by one sex scene after another -- there is a real plot here folks! The love scenes in this novel are passionate, fulfilling, and totally hot: they show the bond that has developed between these two very different men. As he has shown in his other books, the author has a special way with character development that is nearly without equal in this genre.
I eagerly await each of this author's books when they come out, since you are sure not to get a "cookie cutter" romance -- each story, each character, is examined in just the right amount of depth. Give this author a chance -- let his words weave into your heart, let the emotions that his characters feel ignite the smoldering emotions in your own mind -- then you will understand why this author consistently receives five star reviews.
This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange for a fair and honest review. While I enjoyed the slow pace and overall arc of this story I wasn't impressed with the descriptive passages and sex scenes which I found to be awkward and unappealing. Jul 30, Nerea rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites. I totally love this one! Is a bit sad but beautiful!! Andy works in the bad side of the city and after some unfortunate events he needs to go away some days, so he decided to go to him former brother-in-law farm in iowa. Is very slow burn! And even the bit strangeness of their relation their romance is totally believable, the author had connected the plot very good in my opinion.
At first I thought the bro-in-law concept would be kinda gimmicky, but then as I reached the end I realized the plot wouldn't have worked any other way and in that sense the novel is somewhat brilliant in its construction for making you accept the relationship. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and would read again someday. View 1 comment. Jul 26, DL rated it it was ok. I found this book depressing. I see that I'm in the minority.
I'm glad people enjoyed this book. The only part I liked was the slow reveal of Harden's ex wife. It was really well done. I had all sorts of ideas in my mind and none of them were right. I also liked the children. They were sweet and acted their age. I get annoyed with the super precocious brats I come across in most books which is one reason why I avoid books with kids.
I might have fallen a little in love with Iowa. Bu I found this book depressing. But none of that makes up for the main characters. I didn't like Andy or Ken or Harden at all. I felt no sympathy for them.
Their relationship felt like a friendship and no more. The sex scenes were not sexy to me. Andy wasn't a woman and Harden used him like the ass and vagina were interchangeable. Over and over again. At some point Andy needed to stop being a door mat and give some lessons. And why did Andy feel like his totally Awful business was something he deserved? It was said many times but I never figured out why he thought he deserved to work at something so horrible.
