I feel like crying, guys Sure, I liked Why We Fight, sure, it was good, but this isn t a regular series for me, and my expectations were sky high I m obsessed with the first two books in the series read my reviews here and here , and I was 100% sure I was going to 5 star this one toosobs uncontrollably Look, I know T.J Klune had to work with a lot with this story We have a biracial, bigender MC in Corey Kori, and he did them proud by being respectful and playful with their character Ho I feel like crying, guys Sure, I liked Why We Fight, sure, it was good, but this isn t a regular series for me, and my expectations were sky high I m obsessed with the first two books in the series read my reviews here and here , and I was 100% sure I was going to 5 star this one toosobs uncontrollably Look, I know T.J Klune had to work with a lot with this story We have a biracial, bigender MC in Corey Kori, and he did them proud by being respectful and playful with their character However, Corey Kori had a hard past and most of the time is spent at an LGBTQ youth center, so the book had a very serious tone that I wasn t expecting Also, the story takes place in 2016, the year that he who should not be named was starting his presidential journey, so there is the weight of that also on the story The whole book felt much less carefree and much deeper, which doesn t necessarily have to be a bad thing, but it just didn t work out quite like I was hoping it would There wasn t anything wrong with the story We see a TON of the Auster clan yaaaaaas , and there is a awesomely high heat level in the story for a T.J Klune book , but, oddly, it still took me over a week to read OVER A WEEK I read the first two books in under a day each I think my problem was that I just didn t find the book very funny I was expecting crying with laughter, but that s not what happened I had a few moments that made me smile, and I had a few that made me want to keep reading, but I just didn t find the story to be nearly as funny or as addictive as the previous ones I really count on this series to make me smile and laugh, and I think I was just surprised that I didn t quite get that I also wantedromance I didn t quite feel the feelings that I wanted to feel There were still many awesome, memorable scenes My favorite parts were the early morning jogs, the egg ha , and mostly anything with Nana I still think devoted fans of the series are going to enjoy this one and most are going to love it , but I m sad the series is over, and I m sad I can t give a big 5 star send off Copy provided in exchange for an honest review goodreads instagram twitter blogP.S I m 100% going off the theory that I didn t love this book because I didn t read it on a plane like the first two in the series Let s just go with that Wow, what a journey this entire series has been This life it wasn t one I expected to have It wasn t one that I d gone looking for It d found me in a thrift store when I d least expected it And while there had been ups and downs, those peaks and valleys that felt almost manic, I wouldn t change it for anything While this story was slightly less campy and over the top than the previous books in the series, I felt like it did a good job of wrapping things up in a nice, neat bow in this serie Wow, what a journey this entire series has been This life it wasn t one I expected to have It wasn t one that I d gone looking for It d found me in a thrift store when I d least expected it And while there had been ups and downs, those peaks and valleys that felt almost manic, I wouldn t change it for anything While this story was slightly less campy and over the top than the previous books in the series, I felt like it did a good job of wrapping things up in a nice, neat bow in this series finale.The book definitely had its OTT moments, like the egg citing vibrating egg debacle, but overall Corey Kori was aserious character than say Paul, Vince, or Sandy, and since this was his her book, that slightlysubdued tone bled through From the very beginning of the series, Corey Kori always felt muchlike a secondary character for me, so I do have to admit that my OMG, OMG, OMG, O.M.M.F.Gexcitement level was a bit lower when starting this book.I would ve liked quite a fewdetails or stories about what Corey Kori went thru prior to meeting Sandy at age 17, just to have ain depth history of where he she was coming from Instead, we mostly got a repeated line of people didn t know what to do with me, which left me wantingThe UST and longing between Jeremy and Corey Kori felt pretty standard, especially after all of the hyperactive hijinks between Paul and Vince, and then Sandy and Darren It was nice to read, but not quite as wowing as those previous exceptional pairings.My two favorite aspects of this story were, first, when the entire gang got together and hilarity ensued Nothing quite compared to Paul and Vince needing to be hosed down to avoid a horrifying rutting episode while Nana or Charlie were in the same room You re so funny, Vince told him with stars in his eyes I m happy I married you YeahPaul said, a nasty curl to his lipsHow happy Why don t I show youVince said.They were both startled when Charlie squirted them with a spray bottleNo Stop itHe squirted them againStop it right nowAnd second, how the entire group pulled both Jeremy and his dad, Robert, into their midst, making them family, too Chicken soup for the soul, folks, that was Our guys recognized their loneliness for what it was, then banished the shit out of it, and it was awesome Honorary Austers for the win I know this was the end of the series, but I m still hoping against hope that we ll get a story for Diego and Kai, maybeSorry, not sorry, but the imagery of a 21 y.o Diego dancing on top of the bar in only a jock strap, well, it kinda did it for me Hated it I d rate this story at 4 stars and recommend it, while setting the expectation that the previous craziness had been dialed down to about a 7, from the previous books 12 My ARC copy of the book was provided by the publisher in exchange for a fair, unbiased review.See All My Latest Reads
