Read the Thing (4):


Added to TBR List:


Summer Son – Anna Martin


“I wondered why it was that when you were specifically not looking for anyone, not wanting someone in your life, they walked right up and let themselves in.”


In a word: Read the thing. Do you like slice of life? Do you like slice of life with babies? If so, this is definitely a book you should check out. The main point of the story is about Ellis and Zane overcoming obstacles on their road to becoming a family. This family includes Ellis’ infant son Harrison, who doesn’t actually do much (he’s a baby) but is in pretty much 95% of the scenes. Harrison is Ellis’ number one priority, and Ellis is a good father, so we see a lot of Harrison and a lot of the work that goes into taking care of him. Seriously, if you don’t like babies, or don’t find them entertaining in the slightest, you won’t like this. Although Ellis and Zane’s relationship is pretty sweet (if a bit fast for my tastes). Aside from Harrison and romance, Summer Son also has a bit of a dramatic plotline concerning Zane’s past and Ellis’ ex-husband. Ellis and Zane also have a pretty interesting cast of friends, though they never really get enough screen time for me to enjoy their presence. Mostly they just confused me. At the end of the day though, this is a story about two men sweetly romancing each other and coming together as a family (even if I do think that it went a bit too far too fast at times).
