4.5 stars

I absolutely adored Patrick in this story. He's so cute and spazzy and lovable, and all I wanted was for him to succeed and realize how awesome he is. And you can't help but love Whiskey for how he loves Patrick and takes care of him. Everyone should seriously have their very own Whiskey.

Unlike many of Amy Lane's novels, this one is very light on the angst. For the most part, it's a quirky, fun story sort of like If I Must. What angst there is isn't so much sad or drama, but instead it's Patrick's self-deprecating views of himself from having ADHD and the consequences of having a druggie ex-boyfriend.

Throughout his life no one's really understood Patrick or his disorder (including his father) so he's always been told that he's a fuckup and doesn't have his shit together and that he's nothing but a good lay so he begins to believe it all himself. It's not until Whiskey comes along that his view of himself begins to change. Whiskey is the first person to really see and understand Patrick. He's the one to show Patrick that he really had it together all along and that he's perfect as he is, even if he does occasionally hop from one thing to another or spaz out when he's nervous or embarrassed or throw things because he's upset.

I really fell in love with both Patrick and Whiskey, and I think you will, too. Go read this!! :D
