From a meth head to a wonderful dad....that was Wileys journey....his family are obnoxious..uncaring...unseeing....and very very funny...I want a Pawpaw in my family...the man was hilarious.....the scene at the family dinner had me laughing out loud for an age.....you will know which one !!
Would love a follow up story... read this book !!!
This book made me laugh more than any book I have ever read. It has sadness, angst, drama but most of all love even when it is not deserved. It has religious claustrophobia and will make you cringe and think ‘you can’t say that’ but they can and do. At the heart of it is a little boy and his dad who you will undoubtedly fall in love.
Noah is a meth baby whose mother left straight after his birth and then ended up in prison. He will melt your heart with his unconditional love for a woman who has no part in his life. The circumstances of his birth have left him deaf and with physical disabilities but don’t for one minute think that this will impede his joy of life.
Wiley is Noahs dad and his whole world revolves around this little boy. He is eloquent and gentle as he struggles with poverty and the bigotry of being a gay man in Southern America. He refused to give up Noah to his grandparents when he was born and doesn’t regret it for a minute.
When Jackson comes into their life it is not an easy path for any of them but with determination and grit they may just make a family. Before that can happen we have to deal with Wileys family and this is where this book comes into its own. I have never known a book with so many strong characters. They will make you laugh, cry and want to punch them out all in a few pages but all the time Wiley deals with them in a gentle way and stays strong in his beliefs.
His mother is a strong lady who just wants him to get a girlfriend. His brother attends the Baptist church and cannot accept his sexuality. Whenever they get together the conversation always swings round to Wileys lifestyle and his penis.Read more ›
I was not drawn to Wiley or his sense of humour but I was drawn to his son Noah so I kept reading and I'm so glad I did. This story and Wiley really grew on me. At times funny but often heartbreaking and always real.
There are no Adonis gods in this book nor is there marathon sex scenes. Instead there are real men who meet and form a relationship. There is a wonderful child born with complications. There is a crazy family who at first I despised but then I started to see things were not always as I believed and that maybe Wiley had to accept he played a part in their behaviour.
Jackson comes with his own complications and it made a change to have a book filled with real people.
There is a lot of detail about Noah. Being born premature comes with its own complications but being born premature and addicted to meth just quadruples the complications. Noah left me in tears and broke my heart a few times, but then he would bounce back and I got to see a wonderfully adjusted little boy that deserved happiness.
Wiley's family gave me a scare at one point and I envisioned a story line I'm glad to say never happened.
If I had one niggle it was Juan. I'm not sure he needed to be in this story, or if he did then he needed a better ending than just disappearing.
This is definitely a story worth reading for those looking for something more than the standard M/M romance.
