I was interrupted in reading this book, and I almost did not finish it. Luckily I picked it back up.The author states that she likes the idea of seeing how the h/h live after the "I love you" moment. We never get to see these moments normally.What I liked about this book is that we saw two men who were imperfect and they embraced each others' imperfections with understanding and acceptance. I think for me I saw the theme of this book as about addiction (in all forms) and redemption as we turn from them. We must first accept ourselves before we can accept our position as half of a whole.I enjoyed this book. The humor helped to keep the book from being too angsty.
