**AUDIOBOOK REVIEW**
This book surprised me. I didn’t realize when I picked it up it was going to be different characters than the first book were. Instead of Sean and Sam, we got their two adopted sons (well, one was adopted, but they took the other one in as well). Bobby and Kenny were close from the time they met at school until they were getting ready to head off to college. Feelings were well expressed and they started to grow apart.
I have to say I really liked the fun playful side of things that were mixed in with the heavier relationship stuff that was being dealt with along with the whole “growing up” stuff they both had to deal with.
Overall, it was a great story with a little angst at times. I felt like things were not so well written towards the end as time progressed and the school final project neared and it really threw me off. Now, I had the audiobook version so I don’t know if that was part of it or if that’s how the actual story was, but I didn’t like it at all.
The way the two men came together felt… too easy as well. They’d had so many chances to fix the problem before they did and then POOF it was so easy to overcome and it made me roll my eyes and lose a bit of interest because normal people would’ve wanted more said.
However, overall, good narration, good story.
