On the surface Ricky Thompson’s life is one long party His razor sharp wit and unwavering sexual confidence masks his true pain and suffering and that’s how he wants to keep things Ten years after the death of his fiancé Ricky has completely given up on the illusion of love Wild nights in the bar and even wilder casual sex have become his coping mechanism and he wants to keep the party going at whatever cost When he is attacked in a dark alley and left for dead Ricky’s life takes an unexpected turn and the pa. 25 StarsHmmm I m not sure what to say here I ve been wanting to read this author for a while but I think I should have gone for one of his shorter stories to get a taste of his story telling and writing style before tackling a full length novel Ricky Thompson 38 has sworn off dating of any kind Since his fianc died about a decade ago Ricky just cannot let himself get close to another So he hides behind his snark and behind the mask his drag ueen persona Miss Kitty Litter allows him and insists that all he wants out of life is an endless string of one night stands well like an hour or two He doesn t want to know their names or anything about them Just fuck and be gone If he never allows himself to actually be happy then he doesn t ever have to feel miserable either right Sure that makes senseChase Brody 32 is the single father of a 6 year old son Dylan from a one night stand he had Dylan s mother was a party party girl and way too into drugs to raise a kid So she left Dylan with Chase and then went her merry party way until it killed her Chase s homophobic family is always around and telling him he needs to find a woman to settle down with because Dylan needs a feminine influence and every child should have a mother and a father and all kinds of other traditional family and gender role BS that made me twitch Insistence on traditional gender and family roles does have a tendency to piss me off And that Chase was buying into it regardless of the fact that he rarely found women sexually attractive just did not sit right with meI don t want to say it was all bad though because it wasn t I liked that Chase was so dedicated to his son and that when he saw Ricky in the alley after his attack he insisted on staying to help Chase is really a good guy And Ricky though he certainly has issues than National Geographic is a man who is hurting but who doesn t want anyone to know it But he s not a bad guy either He s caring and funny and when he allows himself very loving Plus there seemed to be a reference to Heidi Cullinan s book Let it Snow that I totally approved of The overall theme of self acceptance and second chances at love I thoroughly loved And the cover is rather delicious Ricky s a beautiful man And thank goodness for Chase s 80 something year old neighbor She was one of the only adults in the story with some sense when it came to what really makes a familyBut there was so much tedium wrapped into all that that I had trouble enjoying the story Ricky seemed so determined to never ever take a another chance on love and I just don t get that Yeah life can sure be shitty sometimes but it also goes on whether you like it or not And Ricky constantly runs away I m sure there are people out there like Ricky who are determined to hide from life instead of actually living it and I pity them as much as I pitied Ricky in this story It also bothered me that Chase seemed to be so freaking scared of the words bisexual and gay He was obviously attracted to men considering he was a gay bar every weekend to find one to fuck And though he did also seem to at least be somewhat attracted to women or so he claimed anyway he was most definitely attracted to men He presented to me like a 4 or 5 on the Kinsey scale Probably a 5 As far as I can tell the only woman Chase has slept with was his son s mother and that was only once He mentioned that she was the first woman to show him interest But he has avoided dating women ever since that one night stand because I don t think he has the attraction for most women So why insist for so long that you re straight ish Especially to the guy you can t keep your hands off of I get that everyone needs to come out in their own time and in their own way but this bit got just as annoying as Chase s family drama and Ricky s overuse of the word sweetheart In spite of the fact that Chase knew several married same sex couples he clinged to the men are for sex women are for marriage attitude so long I wondered if it weren t among his many tattoos He s either a deeply closeted gay man or he is bisexual But he is nowhere near straight ishI honestly think I would have enjoyed Ricky if it were edited to about half its length As it was the story line got too tedious and repetitive and family drama just dragged me down Between Chase s super homophobic father and brother his family s insistence that children need a mother and a father Chase s insistence that he is really straight ish almost to the end and Ricky constantly running away I just wanted it all to end I wanted to enjoy the book Hell I want to enjoy every story I read That s why I read Sadly though I didn t all that much Review copy of Ricky was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review
