Very very solid romance novel, skipping all the obvious caveats about how romance novels are not real life. I wish I hadn't stayed up to finish it though, because it ended on a slightly discomfiting note and then I lay in bed having Thoughts and Feelings.

Good! There were a few places where the pacing almost lost me, but it ended well.

I had a real stretch of books for a while that didn't just make me sad, they broke me and made me think humanity (or maybe sentience?) was a mistake, and this is the book I turned to to break that streak. This is the sequel to Boyfriend Material, which I absolutely loved, and I spent a lot of time while reading this one being reminded why and wanting to reread the first one again.

This is a bit unconventional as a romance novel, for many reasons but primarily because Luc and Oliver are together at the beginning of the novel and together at the end. (WHAT! THIS IS STILL A ROMANCE NOVEL, THIS IS NOT A SPOILER.) Luc & Oliver love each other, but they are both struggling with a number of issues, mostly due to some subpar parenting (to put it mildly), and in this second volume they work through many of those while also attending four weddings and funeral (yes, that is a deliberate reference.)

I loved that the partner who seems more together outwardly is actually the one with more to unpack here. I love that both of them have some fist-pumping moments of triumph along the way. I love that this book still managed to surprise me in the end.

It's one of those books that will sneak up on you and before you know it you are halfway through and still have lots to learn. I found that I knew very little about Sam because he conceals so much... partly because he’s pretending to have amnesia so has to be careful about what he tells Jonathan, and partly because he’s deliberately locked away some very painful things he doesn’t want to think about. Alexis Hall does a great job of throwing around little hints throughout the story so that it’s not difficult to guess what Sam is running away from, but it still hits hard when it’s revealed near the end, and we finally fit together all the pieces and understand what Sam has been going through and why he is the way he is, especially concerning his job and the people he works with. I read it and enjoyed it, but it was only when I started to really think about it and go back through the highlights that I realized just how much the author had packed into what seemed, at first, to be a light-hearted story full of snarky talk, an ugly kitty and an oversized Christmas tree. Along with the romance, it's a story about connecting and re-connecting...about being true to yourself... and not being afraid to show that you care. One of the many things Alexis Hall does so well is to let his characters experience growth while remaining essentially the same people, and this was certainly true of Sam and Jonathan. Sam was still the upbeat guy that is so very prone to wearing his heart on his sleeve, and Jonathan is still the gruff, aloft, and anxious one...but they’ve found in one another, that "special someone" who complements them...who understands them...and who accepts them and loves them for who they are. They learn that together, they’re not necessarily different, but they are "better". I thought that the fake amnesia plot was a little shaky, and it went on too long, but it absolutely does NOT spoil the story. The book is a mixture of the "crazy and the meaningful" all wrapped up in a romance that's filled with humor that really works well. I consider this one to be a keeper.… (més)
