Summary:

Meet Patrick Cleary: party boy, loser, and spaz. Patrick's been trying desperately to transform himself, and the results have been so spectacular, they've almost killed him. Meet Wes "Whiskey" Keenan: he's a field biologist wondering if it's time to settle down. When the worst day of Patrick's life ends with Whiskey saving it, Patrick and Whiskey find themselves sharing company and an impossibly small berth on the world's tackiest houseboat.



Patrick needs to get his life together-and Whiskey wants to help-but Patrick is not entirely convinced it's doable. He's pretty sure he's a freak of nature. But Whiskey, who works with real freaks of nature, thinks all Patrick needs is a little help to see the absolute beauty inside his spastic self, and Whiskey is all about volunteering. Between anomalous frogs, a homicidal ex-boyfriend, and Patrick's own hangups, Whiskey's going to need all of his patience and Patrick's going to need to find the best of himself before these two men ever see clear water.

    I loved it so much, the reader was a bit monotone but the story is well worth listening to. A real story of how a little love can do a lot of healing.

    This was a good story, but I had a problem with Patrick. His character really bothered me, he was so immature. At times, it was almost like reading about an adult having a relationship with a child. It was a little icky—for lack of a better word. It didn’t help the visual that Patrick was described as a twink who weighed about 100lbs (totally matched up to his childlike, dependent behavior). For me, I like all parties involved in a relationship to be independent and able to take care of themselves. I don’t like to feel like they are reliant on the other person for survival. Luckily, Patrick matured quite a bit by the end, which made it better for me and raised my rating. This book was just okay for me, but I’ve read others by Amy Lane that I loved so I will try more.
