First of all, I love the title of this book and the cover perfectly illustrates the meaning. It speaks to my witty side and immediately drew my attention and curiosity to find out what was inside.

I am pleased to say I found a very captivating read. From beginning to end I wanted to know what would happen next in the life of Sebastian Behr. Considering this was not written in a typical romance story fashion, but rather, in the first person, which I usually don't like, I wish to be clear this is meant to be a huge compliment to Asher Conrad as a writer, as well as a strong encouragement for readers to purchase this book and give it a go.

I found Sebastian's adventures, his travails and how he chose to navigate these circumstances interesting and often times humorous to picture (not that I would want to be found in those same situations, but...) What I appreciated most about this book is that it was written with such brutal honesty about men from a man's point of view. I seriously think every young woman should read this, because we women like to believe the men we want are good guys. And well, while most can be, some men are not, or at least, not always. Sebastian himself, was a faithful husband who worked hard to give his wife a comfortable life and was looking forward to filling his house with children. A family man. A good guy. And then for reasons out of his control things went awry after which he reverted back to his pre-marriage frat boy ways. Not a good guy. Inside these pages you will find a honest, blunt, explicit, and somewhat sad story of the turmoil unexpected losses can bring to a man's well-being and self-esteem and how he reacts both inwardly and outwardly. Best of all, this is a story of how he finds his way back to becoming the man he has always aspired to be and back on track to the life goals he had set for himself. It's an interesting journey. Well worth the read.

*I received a paperback copy of this book as a Goodreads contest winner.

While I can't say I loved the book I did find it a nice change to have our main character, a male, expose his mind and heart on issues such as the significance gained from work, the validation of a significant other and the fear of failure. We rarely have such insight into a man's thought process.
I found the character development to be well done. The plot was a bit blah to me but I suspect it would hit many as interesting. The story flows well with no obvious hiccups. The ending may have been a bit rushed.
I would havegiven this a 2.5 but a can only do a 2 or 3 will go with a 3.
