    One thought on “Feels like Friday”

    1. As most of you know, I'm not a 'sappy story' lover. Man left? Yeah, well get on with life. It's only a man. There's more out there. And yet, once in a while I come across a story that explores the softer side and it pulls me in. Not surprisingly, it was A. Renfro who made me want to slap his MC in the beginning, then cheer for him through the ups and downs. I'm a fickle reader and most books can't touch that soft spot in me, but this one did. Recommended.

    2. If you own this book, read it. The roller-coaster is worth it. While the story starts on a "low" note, the banter and humorous descriptions bring you up, and give you and the main characters hope. While the story progresses quicker than maybe real life might be, this story of loss and gain, delivers doses of truth about how even when life seems its lowest, that is the time to reach for the strength in others, find solace in their arms and in their words. So, very, very good.

    3. I don't quite know what this book was supposed to be about.If it was supposed to be about Evan reclaiming his life after the sudden shock of being left by his partner of twenty years, I guess it worked, to some extent. The writing was good, even if it tended a bit on the rambling side. Also, while most feelings and reactions of the characters were realistic and appropriate to the situation, others didn’t feel believable.Take Evan’s friends reactions after Jacob left him, for example.This man [...]

    4. 4 stars Lovely story.I was excited reading the first chapter and I kept on reading because it was quite funny at times but damn I wasn't ready for the sad parts (view spoiler)[ I cried when Brad died he was my favorite character, and I was hoping that in de end he and Evan would be together (hide spoiler)]

    5. While this book had some good parts it does have the tendency to ramble on which in my opinion would have been better if it got compacted in shorter bits, so now it got just an ok from me.Then there is a thing I start to hate because it happens in a lot of books, and this one is no exception: Somewhere in the second half of the book something major happens, which often involves violence, a kidnapping, a big accident, a suicide (attempt) you name it. Somehow this leads to the Mc('s) realising the [...]

    6. Sappy story that doesnt come off as fake and contrived as many books in this genre do. Makes you feel good in the end. The first half is a little slow. I give Renfro credit for not taking this story to word-porn as that cheapens the story. Rally great second half and tge story ends without huge leaps or plot holes.

    7. This book starts out like a standard romance novel, with a familiar predicament -- Evan has been left by his longtime boyfriend, and he has to start over. You meet and really get to know Evan's supportive friends; meanwhile, he tries to make sense of what has happened to his life. Then the book takes a turn that was unexpected, but immensely powerful, and it really changed the book. The author captured a situation that unfortunately will be familiar to a lot of Americans, and he made it real by [...]

    8. Great Story - Leaving me with mixed emotions.I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this book but it kept me glued. It was very well written and obviously there were some very sad bits but talk about a cliche! The best way to get over somebody is to get under somebody new. But then again, it's fiction and we were kept guessing until the very end. #TeamJase all the way.
