terrible-twos-by-megs-pritchardAfter leaving University, Zach struggled to find employment. When he eventually found work in a call centre, he was ecstatic.

 But from day one he had a problem.

 After an accidental run-in with the manager, Geoff, Zach was under no illusions that his days were numbered.

 While dealing with is work issues, Zach is left devastated when his sister dies.

 Now, struggling at work with a boss who may or may not like him, Zach is now raising his two young nephews alone.

 One night a chance encounter with Geoff changes everything. But is Geoff willing to stand by Zach or will he walk away?

 This was a cute story.  I have read a couple of this author’s books before and I was hoping I would enjoy this one just as much and I defiantly did.  Zach is working so hard to be an adult, but no matter what he has been hit with problems or something going bad in his life.

 

Zach is just getting into the swing of things at his new job when he is hit with the news that his sister and brother in law have died in a car crash.  Suddenly he is a father to two young boys that are missing their parents.  To top it off his boss keeps giving him more and more crap at work and Oliver, his oldest nephew, is going through the terrible twos.

 

This story is told from Zach’s point of view and you can’t help but feel for him and his situation.  I can’t imagine having to raise two little boys with no support system what so ever.  Not knowing what John is thinking really makes him seem like a jerk from the beginning, but even he admits to it when Zach confronts him.  At some points I really wished John had a bit more of a backbone than just running scared when something goes wrong, I mean Zach has enough going on than to deal with more crap.  I absolutely loved Zach’s nephews, this author didn’t paint the kids as perfect like most do, I could just picture everything that they did because it was exactly the kind of thing most kids really do.

 

Cover art by AM Snead is adorable and gives sweet visuals of Zach and his nephews.
