I was raised to be a Southern Lady. My mom taught me manners, how to sew, how to cook, how to be a good hostess, etc. I wasn’t quite a debutante, but I got a pretty good “education.” To my mom’s dismay I’m also somewhat crass and enjoy a good dirty joke, but you know what I don’t like? TOILET HUMOR. We NEVER EVER talked about bodily functions in my family growing up and it’s something I’m still uncomfortable talking about with ANYONE. This book is absolutely hilarious, but full of jokes about things that I can’t even type. Things that boys do and think are funny. Those things. Gross. BUT… I loved this story and these characters so much, but the excess toilet humor didn’t piss me off enough to put this down.
I loved Marley and her evolution from tom boy to beauty blogger. I loved her dedication to her career and her love for her family. I loved Bernie and his presidential cursing. I loved Diva Paul and his drama. I definitely loved Porter and his quiet determination and love for Marley and the rest of the McManns. Thee characters’ relationships with one another were so heartwarming and funny.
This book was so funny and so lovely. I wish I could Eternal Sunshine it from my mind and read it again.
Also hot sex and road trips. Obviously.
