Book 1 - The Last Thing He Needs by J.H. Knight

Title: The Last Thing He Needs
Author: J.H. Knight
Genre: M/M Romance
Pages: 220
Summary: Tommy O’Shea is raising his seven younger brothers and sisters without any help from his drug abusing father and stepmother. Since he was fifteen years old, he's managed to keep the children fed and out of foster care. It takes up every ounce of his energy and the last thing he needs is romance complicating his life further.

Rookie cop Bobby McAlister doesn't belong in Tommy’s harsh world, but Tommy can’t push him out. As their unlikely friendship turns into a tentative relationship, they weather the daily storm of Tommy’s life with a lot of laughs and more than a few arguments.

Tommy isn't used to trusting outsiders, and he's never asked for help in his life. But when a tragedy strikes the O'Shea family and threatens everything he's fought for, he'll have to learn to do both to recover from the brutal hit.

My thoughts:

I like it because it really hits one of my buttons - having the world resting on your shoulders and you should just give up because it's crushing everything you are but you keep going no matter what. And that's exactly what Tommy's doing.

I like Tommy and even though I sometimes wanted to shake him a bit and accept the help Bobby kept offering. I get why he wouldn't but still.

There are some things I'm a bit "Huh?" and *scratches head* about but all in all I enjoyed reading the story and discovering if they will get their Happy Ending. :)
