This is my first book by this author.
This is the story of Zach. He's newly out of university and struggling to find a job. His only source of support is his sister. There's just him and her and Zach adores her. She's just had a new baby and already has a toddler that Zach dotes on. Unfortunate events lead to Zach having to look after his Nephews. He's just found his first job and is struggling to juggle everything. His new boss isn't helping either finding any chance he can to pick at Zach's work. Zach is close to breaking point. When he does finally break an unexpected friend is there to help.
I found the start of this book a little slow going maybe going into too much detail about his job but i still found i wanted to find out what happens to Zach. I really liked Zach and i also really liked John but i felt i didn't really know too much about them. I have to be honest and say I'd have rather read about their pasts rather than Zach's job training and telecommunications info. I think because there isn't much info i didn't fully connect with them. You virtually have no background on John whatsoever and i get this was told from Zach's POV but i would have liked to know more about John's family and past.
I liked the storyline and where it was supposed to go. Zach's relationships with his nephews made me chuckle in parts as most parents will relate to their adventures. I also liked his relationship with John and the sex scenes were pretty hot too.
There's lots to like in this book but i just felt it missed the mark. I'm a little frustrated with it because it's all there it just needs more connecting. I felt as though bits were missing. It's a reasonably short book so i think more could have been added in. As I've said more background and also more about the things that go on towards the end at work. That stuff felt a little out of nowhere. It ended abruptly too, i was trying to flip the page but there wasn't any more to it.
It was just o.k for me.
