OH. My. GOD!
This was SOOOOO funny. But also, unexpectedly touching, too. With some crazy smexy times thrown in for good measure.
(This is the third book in the series – the first two reviewed here: http://openskyebookreviews.com/?s=tell+me+it%27s+real+klune)
This is not a standalone – it’s full of “inside jokes” and things that only make sense if you’ve been reading the series all along. And it’s HYSTERICAL. OH MAN. I literally laughed out loud so often I had to leave the room so my husband could sleep. I snorted and almost cried, too.
Things I ADORED: The feelings. Yes – Vince can be sappy and so can Paul – but also Daddy and Sandy and –what? – Darren too? And the folks and – well pretty much everyone spills feelings all over this book. The GPS. That Bitch made me a fan of TJ from the first moment I read Tell Me It’s Real. It was one of the first times I felt the need to pull over and stop the car because I was laughing so hard. She’s back in this book and even bitchier! The Bros. O.M.G! When Corey and Sandy decide they can be bros and take a tour of the horse farm- I really almost peed my pants. The wedding. It was spectacular and wonderful and just as I’d expected. Jeremy and his father. Yes! I really want to hear about both of these men in a longer story. Daddy is a character I’ve loved from day one and I know Klune is comfortable about writing older figures (See Jack and Jackie) so it would be fantastic if we can see their story unfold from the beginning. Corey/Kori is another angst-fest waiting to happen – I can tell- but it seems like her Jeremy has a good, solid head on his shoulders and won’t be prone to any nonsense.
All in all this was so much fun to read, surprisingly touching, non-surprisingly hysterical and such a nice way to catch up to old friends and meet new ones! (The audio will probably make my head explode with it’s greatness!)
Gah! This was SOOOO funny. First you think it really can’t be more funny than reading it, right? Well – it’s different funny. In my head the jokes play out one way and in Michael Lesley’s mind another, so it’s a different funny and so you get two sets of experience! I adored listening to this! I laughed out loud and I found Michael’s special effects wonderful! There’s a crowd scene (you know where!), a Sat Nav voice (The evil bitch!), the phone, and more… all these extra touches which just make this already fabulous story rocket out of the stratosphere.
Favorite moment: Being Bros. I couldn’t even stop laughing. I was crying so hard! I can’t wait for Kori’s story!!!!
So… if you haven’t already bought it – do it! But make sure you’ve read/listened to the others in the series first.
