Picking up from where the author left the story in the first book – Bear, Otter and the Kid are now settled into their new house called the Green Monstrosity. The names says it all folks!
Anyhoo, this little family of three still have a lot in their hands as they face their future together. The Kid is skipping a grade, attending therapy and meets his new bestfriend. Otter is still big, now works at the local studio and designated himself as Bear and the Kid’s protector. Bear on the other hand is as protective with the Kid but a lot has change as well in him aside from his diarrhea of the mouth. Anna and Creed are still working out their unlabeled relationship and Mrs.Paquin still rocks!
This book is totally way funnier and more indulgent if I may say, compared with the first book. It’s also a lot lighter in vibe and characters coming into full circle.
The coming-out dinner with Otter’s parents was just downright funny it’s almost slapstick. Ah! Indulgence! Indulgence! But I f–ng loved it! “Coitus, Drunken….oh my lawd! LOL”
oh, and my guess from the first book regarding Jonah turned out to be right. It was painfully predictable but that makes the story okay because the author didn’t drag it.
Now that Mrs. Paquin has planted a seed in my brain about Bear, Otter and Creed’s threesome – I can’t seem to get it out of my head! LOL
This book is really such a great follow up to Bear and Otter’s love story that by the end of it, I almost feel melancholic saying bye bye to them. I now couldn’t wait to read the Kid’s own story!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
