    Sometimes I rate books 3 stars because I like the whole book a little bit, but I don t have very strong feelings about it Sometimes I rate books 3 stars because I really liked parts of the book but had problems with other parts Shy falls in the last camp Shy was my first book from John Inman, and I have to say, I was really impressed He has a great writing style that grabbed me from the start, and really funny, self deprecating characters I liked his sense of humor though fewer poop jokes might have been nice , and I liked the banter between the characters I also am a HUGE sucker for characters with disabilities, and SAD social anxiety disorder was an interesting one to read about I like an underdog character, and seeing Tom and Frank deal with their anxiety in a humorous way was really enjoyable to read Heather, you say, it seems like you LOVED this book What s the problem Well, I ll enlighten you First of all, I feel like this book could be split into two sections the first half which dealt mostly with SAD and the meeting of Tom and Frank, and the second half, which I ll dub, Poop and Drama The first half of the book was fun, with the exception of one of my BIGGEST pet peeves INSTALOVE GAH, John Inman, why you gotta play me like that Instalove is so bad, IMO, that I ve taken to automatically docking a star when I see it This book was sooooo instalove and it killed me I also didn t get the relationship with Jerry, but that was throughout the first and second half of the book He had a VERY strange co dependent, toxic relationship with Tom, and I was completely baffled about their dynamic The second half of the book had another positive Frank s dad Frank s dad was a lovely, well rounded, extremely touching character He was a great blend of funny, emotional, and interesting, and I think the book got great depth from him However ugh, the second half of the book was exhausting for me Lots of farm jokes, lots of slapstick comedy, and LOTS of drama Stanley was one of my least favorite characters because he was like a movie villain He was completely, 100% evil, and it got to be comical in a terrible way I thought that the character of Stanley really cheapened the story I also thought it was strange how the SAD issue was rarely discussed in the second half of the book I mean, these guys could barely leave the house before and now they interacted with other people albeit in the limited setting with no issues Finally, I have to mention the blow job hand job only sex Sure, some people aren t into penetration, but I found it to be a bit odd, especially because there was so much talk about Tom s endowment Phew Loong review, mixed review, but I feel like John Inman can really work for me in the future, as long as a few things are tweaked Copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review Read as part of John Inman s Greatest Hits.

    4 S.A.D STARS Don t worry, it s not really sad We might not be much at socializing, but by God, stick a dick in our faces and we could rumble with the best of them After my last book left me a bit emotionally drained, I was looking for something to pick me up, make me laugh out loud, and feel good This book was just exactly what I was looking for It was hilarious and fun I really enjoyed it.Tom suffers from S.A.D., a.k.a Social Anxiety Disorder Because of this, Tom has trouble in group settings He becomes a shy nervous wreck just thinking about having to talk to strangers This is why he is alone Well, he does have his dog Pedro that keeps him company Now, his ex cheating boyfriend Jerry has invited him to a party he and his new partner Stanley are hosting Tom of course refuses but Jerry convinces him by setting him up to become friends with Stanley s straight out of the farm brother who also suffers from S.A.D It was an awkward first meeting but pretty soon they hit it off, and end up falling for each other I m beginning to understand what maybe falling love is like And I don t want to stop understanding it And I don t want to fall in love with anybody else, either I want to fall in love with you All the way This was such a funny story I enjoyed Tom s snarky narration He was so awesome, I could not get enough of his quirky inner ramblings And Pedro, the Chihuahua, freaking stole the spotlight many times I loved that annoying yet endearing dog Frank, oh my, he was hot and such a sweetheart I loved him too They did fall in love a bit too fast but I didn t care, they were so freaking perfect for each other I also very much enjoyed it when they went to the farm to visit Frank s father, who is dying from cancer Frank s father was really great I didn t know how Tom would react or how fast he would acclimate to his new surrounding so that was fun to read There were a series of mishaps that had me laughing out loud The chickens, the cows, the pigs, and the scary boar Samsonfreaking funny I m glad you ve got each other You look happy I hope you can stay that way I have no issue whatsoever with you being the way you are Just be good to each other That s all I ask And be happy I can t tell you how sad I was that Frank s father Joe was slowly dying But he was such a great man It s unfortunate he made a horrible son, thankfully that was not Frank I really hated Stanley, Frank s brother, because he was such a prick Seriously, he was a big giant douche There were a few steamy scenes, but, I was expecting a bit That doesn t mean that the scenes we did get weren t hot, because they were I really enjoyed this humourous story I loved the antics of many of the characters I loved how Tom and Frank let their extreme shyness fade away when they were together It was so heart warming The ending was a bit over the top, unbelievable, and definitely not what I was expecting at all, but it was also so great I loved the sweet conclusion Tom and Frank got It left me totally content and with a happy smile If you enjoy sarcastic humour with some quirky side characters most of which were animals , then you will love this entertaining and hilarious story.

    3.75 STARS We might not be much at socializing, but by God, stick a dick in our faces and we could rumble with the best of them Tom suffers from SAD Social Anxiety Disorder He loves the city working as a Senior Relationship Banker Every day is an experiment from Tom He doesn t have friends, he doesn t have fun, and he doesn t have love His only friend is Pedro, his Chihuahua Everything is about to change for Tom when he meets Frank Frank is Stanley s brother So who is Stanley Stanley is the new partner of Tom s cheating ex, Jerry Frank is a country boy He grew all his live in Indiana, but he moved in the city to live a little He doesn t get along very well with his brother, so he can t stay with him and Jerry Frank also suffers from SAD Tom and Frank click immediately and they become very fast lovers, Frank moving in Tom s apartment right away Time passes, their relationship grows, but Frank has to go back in Indiana, because his father has cancer So Tom goes with him, even if he s so scared of chickens, LOL where he tries very hard to become the perfect farmer.This was a very enjoyable read It was funny, but also it was sad at times The story is narrated from Tom s POV and I had a blast being in his head I LOL at times, especially in the beginning reading Tom s monologues I loved Tom and Frank s adventures, especially in Indiana at Frank s farm Both MC are very likeable Tom is funny and snarky and Frank was very sweet I even loved Pedro, the Chihuahua However I hated Stanley, the dick Tom s words, not mine and Jerry, the douche Frank s dad was great I liked his relationship with both Frank and Tom and I liked the fact his not a judgmental prick In some way the ending was a little too much, but I liked it.What it didn t work for me of course, was the insta love between Tom and Frank Overall, a cute, funny and adorable story

    3.75 starsMore thoughts later, but Pedro and Samson bumped this up to 4 stars heh I finished Shy without too much trouble, what can I say I had a ball, chuckling inappropriately as I followed Frank and Tom on their misadventures The humour 95% of the time usually wouldn t do it for me especially this type of snark, amazingly it was a funny experience The pooping dog thing only lasted for a bit and wasn t the ordeal I was expecting, I had too many laugh out loud moments at Pedro s antics to worry about the poop The farm trip and all the bad luck Tom experiences at the hands of the farm animals is hilarious and brought back fond memories Samson the Boaris a killer eh hem, be very afraid I loved it, oh and the sex is extremely good, really it is.

    Not my book I admit I skimmed from 50% I enjoy the Green Acres trope in general, but the style of writing just wasn t to my taste I liked the first third, when the MCs were in the city, than once they moved to the country, where the bitchy, urbane narrative voice just grated Here s our fish out of water MC helping with farrowing Now, just go to it, Frank said Stick your hand in there Think of it as fist fucking Make sure you go in the right hole Huh Then I saw what he meant Oh yeah So I did that too Or tried to I picked my hole very, very carefully, don t think I didn t, but still the fist fucking analogy wasn t working for me, so I imagined myself sticking my arm through a big fat white gooshy coat sleeve It worked I was up to my wrist in no time In the proper hole too, thank God I didn t much care for it, but Grace didn t seem to mind Go figure.Even in the bit I did like, I had some instalove issues, and there s a belief stretching event in order to get the guys living in the country.However the sex was great The descriptions of oral, and ejaculations, and men s bodies were so lovely A on the sex.I would rate 2 stars, but I don t want to skew the ratings when there are so few, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with the book, it s just not to my taste.

    3.5 Down On The Farm Stars Well that was.cute And having finished the book, I can forgive the cover.as it makes a lot sense now But hello insta love Pretty sure Tom and Frank fell in love in two days But honestly, I kind of forgot about it I wish they hadn t spent quite as much time on the farm..But it did bring about quite a few laughsbetween Samson, Pedro, Joe, Moody and the gang there were some interesting times And some sad ones.StanleyYou deserved that run in with Samson Did Tom and Frank do anything besides give each other blow jobs Where was the rest of the man lovin So yeah, in the end.I liked it but didn t love it.

    AudiobookNarrated by Tommy O Brien, I have to look for books narrated by him, I like his voice.This story was funny, cute and adorable, as most books from this author

    I cannot even believe what happened at the end of this story I haveI have no words right now.I loved this book Will review later It has to be said that this is not a book for everyone We re in the head of Tom Morgan and his voice is at times incredibly ridiculous but oh so amusing to me and this made me laugh and laugh at the sometimes graphic humour and over the top situations.This story is hardcore instalove between Tom and Frank but we get an extended workable relationship that moves through that initial lust haze with charm and sweetness firmly into a believable HEA I can see Tom, Frank and little Pedro together many years down the road and that makes me happy.Cast of characters Tom, a banker with social anxiety disorder SAD Jerry, his ex boyfriendStanley, Jerry s new boyfriendFrank, Stanley s brother who also suffers from SADPedro, Tom s ChihuahuaJoe, Frank and Stanley s fatherSampson, literally a boarIn what may have been a joke Tom is set up by Jerry and Stanley to meet Frank and the two shy men hit it off beginning a rather blazing sexual and emotional affair There is some incredible chemistry between them and I found the sex scenes hot but also quite sweet as their emotional connection deepens Due to Joe s illness, Tom and Frank leave the city and head to the family farm in Indiana to help keep things running While Tom s heart is in the right place he s a city boy so the transition to rural life is difficult one.I could quote this book from dusk to dawn, so much of it just struck me as hilarious but there were also quite a few poignant moments between Tom and Frank as well as Joe Pedro is adorable and a scene stealer for most of the story This book is irreverent in many ways and I also found it to be a lovely romance but wow, the ending for the villain was shall we sayunexpected I won t give too much away but it is a very view spoiler Hannibal esque death hide spoiler

    DNF 25%I agree with Emma s reviewThe bitchy narrative voice grated even in the first 25% and doggy pee poo as running joke so not my thing.Admittedly humor rarely works for me I caved on Shattered Glass so be assured this isn t a bad book, it s just not my book
