starsI hate to say it, but I just didn t like Ricky I wanted to, and the blurb caught my attention right away because I love hurt comfort stories I also tend to like stories where men get past traditional opinions of raising children and who they should raise them with.Well, I felt a bit misled There was no mention of Ricky being a drag queen Honestly, I don t have anything against them I

misled There was no mention of Ricky being a drag queen Honestly, I don t have anything against them I ve actually met some lovely drag queens, and I m a HUGE fan of Chi Chi LaRue, RuPaul, and God, I love Dame Edna However, I just don t find them to be particularly sexy Please don t think I m being prejudiced It s just a personal thing I figured, though, since I had committed, I d give it a go, rather than trying to DNF it or ask someone else to do it.Let s start with Ricky himself There were a lot of times when I actually cringed His overuse of the word sweetheart started to drive me insane If I was to do a shot every time it was said, I d have passed out before the middle of the story Then there was the meaningless, anonymous sex I ve read so many books where one of the MCs is a very promiscuous, but Ricky, with his rules and his behavior, started to bethan just a trope I was angry with him from the start, to tell you the truth He was out with his friend when he saw a handsome man Ricky sends his poor friend out to get some coffee for him and his potential conquest, and when he seals the deal, he leaves with the man, literally walking past his friend and leaving him holding the coffee So, by 3% I despised a character I m supposed to fall in love with and become invested in his happily ever after Not cool.Read Kenna s review in its entirety here DNF at 12%I normally don t rate books I DNF at 12%, but this was so so bad, I have to give it a rating.When I read the blurb I got al giddy This looked like such a great hurt comfort book But boy, this really really sucked.For me it was hate at first sight with MC Ricky He calls everyone sweetheart in a condescending tone, and have everyone treat him like the queen he is He also just leaves his best friend at a flea market they re both at, to go screw some guy he just picked up there And wh DNF at 12%I normally don t rate books I DNF at 12%, but this was so so bad, I have to give it a rating.When I read the blurb I got

week to go clubbing So he arranges a babysitter every Friday night to pick up guys Yes, he has a hard life.And oh, even though he fucks a different guy every week, he s not sure he is gay He could be just curious.And let me tell you someabout Chase This guy does not have a cock, he has a MANHOOD Such a sexy word don t you think Oh yes, come here with your manhood.And also this monster is 10 INCHES LONG That is a lot of manhood dude Does he have to roll it up to get it in his pants I stopped reading after Chase s anaconda came out to play with some random guy he picked up at the bar 2.5

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 queen 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 sense.Chase 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 ontraditional 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 me.I 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 hasissues 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 family.But 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 ish.I honestly think I would have enjoyed Rickyif 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.
