My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Title: Terrible Twos
Author: Megs Pritchard
I don’t often indulge in M/M genre novels, mostly because it’s not my go to genre, however, when I read Megs Pritchard’s blurb to Terrible Twos, I was intrigued. And i’m glad that I did read it; it was adorable and heartfelt in ways that I didn’t expect. Zach is a 22 year old gay man who just graduated from university and is struggling to find a job in the field he studied, but when the opportunity for a position in a call centre opens, he applies for it and gets it. *sounds pretty standard, right?* however, a few weeks into his new job, he gets a call informing him of the death of his last remaining relative, his sister, who he was very close to, and her husband. Needing to take care of the situation on his own, and now a newly single father to his two nephews under the age of two, Zach also has the unbearable pressure of his boss John to perform better and faster, knowing he hates him. It’s when John calls Zach on the worst possible night that things change between the both of them, feelings they didn’t want to admit coming out in the light of day.
I teared up more than once while I read Terrible Twos: it was heart wrenching and had me thinking how death can impact so many lives and not just one. I enjoyed watching the love and relationship between Josh and Zach unfold, to see how hate turns into something more heartfelt but not without its difficulties. While it wasn’t the most sexually explicit novel i’ve read, Megs Pritchard has a way of weaving a tale that makes you feel it. I would absolutely read more from her in the future and see how she will wrench your heart.
