Lane said it never occurred to him that his son could still be grieving. I could see that. But the fact that he allowed this kid to do whatever, whenever, with no punishment or retribution, there's no excuse for that. The kid talked back not only to babysitters, but to Lane & Andy as well, even raising his voice. When Andy slept on the couch, Zach climbed up and sat on him (and he knew!), watching TV and eating cereal. And the increasing violence and anger (he shoved 1 babysitter & screamed at her, the next time he picked up a shovel and bust a window) was a mess. Apparently his mother seemed to suffer from a possibly undiagnosed mental health problem - based on conversation in the book - perhaps this was the issue with Zach. Maybe his behavior wasn't his fault, but at 6 years old always getting his way was not the way to handle it. What I didn't really like about Lane was that he seemed desperate (calling coworkers to get Andy's address, popping up at his apartment, popping up at his job) and jealous (constantly asking who his roommate was, asking who he was at the bar with). Keep in mind that from beginning to end, including sleeping together, announcing their relationship to Zach, and exchanging "I love you's" all happened in a span of 2-3 weeks. His behavior didn't come off as romantic, it came off as possessive. A couple of characters from previous books make an appearance (Was Cat always that obnoxious? Why is Archer still dating other people when he has a BF now?). I liked them more than the MCs of this story.
I particularly liked the way the author handled the very real grief of the little boy in the story. He was as much a main character as the love interests were as opposed to being a prop for the story which can often happen in this genre.
Overall, it was a quick read and a delightful holiday pick-me-up.
