book.This audiobook How did I love thee Let this review hopefully capture all the ways I ll try to keep the gushing to level 10 Maybe There are a lot of angsty events happening all around this story And The Last Thing He Needs is most definitely a romance, the ensemble cast O Sheas makes this story.There is a lot of strife and real life topics touched in this heartwarming tale the victims of drug alcohol emotional abuse, living well below the poverty line, past sexual abuse PTSD, thieving to survive, death of a parent.With all of that life gasoline fire surrounding the story, this is me at the end OMG I love them Heart eyes 4eva This is my third J.H Knight and you know what I love her writing It s like chicken soup to my reader s soul There s something about it that I respond to while reading It could be the ease of her writing, the way she captures the right essence of family love to deal with whatever real life antics go on or the fact that I want keep her characters in my pocket.Now the similarities to another TV family is obviously there, but I love Shameless And read it as a homage to a great show I d definitely watch Knight s version.A unicorn let me know the story is emotional manipulation and you know it Hell, I knew it but you love it anyway.As do I.Being as this is a classic or if not yetit definitely will be , I won t rehash too much of the plot The Last Thing He Needs has Thomas O Shea aka Tommy in charge of his seven brothers and sisters His father is a drunk and his stepmother is a drug addicted whore The two parents I use that term loosely abandon their children to fend for themselves at a drop of a dime Tommy, Colleen, Mikey, Davey, Carrie, Collin and infants Max and Zoe do whatever it takes to keep the roof over their head and the lights on Odd jobs, hustling money or items needed, no job is too small for the O Sheas A rookie cop who has made numerous visits to the O Shea home, Officer Bobby McAlister, takes a liking to Tommy and his ragtag family Tommy has always harbored a crush on the blonde cop, but never thought anything would come of it Tommy sa fuck and dodge kinda guy.But those feelings don t remain dormant And Bobby, sweet persistent and equally hardheaded as an O Shea Bobby, doesn t back down when the times are rough and dredged in misery He courts the oblivious Tommy and it is sweet and charming and just all the things I love reading about Me at the end of listening Michael Stellman did a pretty good job narrating Granted, I read along with the audiobook so I caught a few discrepancies with his choice of words and the actual text They were minor And the Stellman didn t try making a lot of different voices for the multiple characters Instead, he read through and kept the story interesting enough But what I think my favorite thing about his narration is his voice It s this sexy kind of growl that kept me hooked I m going to check out other books he narrated just to listen to Stellman purr in my ear.Pair great narration with an awesome book and you know I had a wonderful time As Bobby and Tommy get closer, the weight off the O Sheas collective back doesn t disappear but it does get a little easier to bear Bobby and his mom Judy squeeze their way into the family s heart and help when it s needed I loved the realistic approach to the problems Sometimes Tommy got a little preachy, but it fit the story And I can honestly say I love each and every character, well almost those drunken drug addicted shit stains for parents They can go to hell in hand basket while wearing gas drenched drawers.Me and maybe ten other people haven t read The Last Thing He Needs If you re one of the ten, jump on it And if you ve read it, the audio is well worth listening to a sample.Highly recommend the audiobook and eBook to readers definitely a great book for newbie MM readers, fans of Shameless and readers who love a big cast of characters.Definitely a solidified J.H Knight fan after reading this.Due to me going to bed like this Tommy O Shea Is Raising His Seven Younger Brothers And Sisters Without Any Help From His Drug Abusing Father And Stepmother Since He Was Fifteen Years Old, He S

perfect I loved that the children, although they ve had to grow up pretty fast, weren t precocious I loved that they argued and lied and stole and spoke with a somewhat poor vocabulary None of the characters seemed over the top, even the shitty assed parents It felt very real to me The writing was simplistic yet was able to capture the emotions with such smoothness that it almost felt like poetry Tommy understood in one fraction of a heartbeat every love song he d ever heard, every dream he was afraid to have, every memory of anything good that had ever happened to him It was all wrapped up in Bobby He was the music, he was the dream, he was the love, and he was the hope So I was played So I was manipulated.I d do it all over again in a heartbeat 3 StarsWhat I didn t like Tommy I didn t like him He was too stubborn for my taste I know, he was through a lot, his behavior was understandable, he was on his own for too long and he did a good job but sometimes you have to

other and not really about Tommy and Bobby s relationship I wanted to seeof them, I mean they spending time with each other What I liked I liked Bobby, how he was there for Tommy and how he wanted to help him, how he cared about the kids I liked Bobby s mother as well I liked Tommy s relationship with his siblings, how he raised them even though at the time he himself was just a kid I liked the writing, it held my interest till the end.Told in single POV, 3rd person It s the first installment in The Last Thing He Needs It s not cliffy and can be read as a standalone It s angsty and a bit dragging in places I m in the minority here, I m not saying it was bad but it wasn t as good as I thought All in all, it was an okay read and hope you like itthan me 3.5 starsThis was so angsty, I

despicable addicts who stole from their children she got her comeuppance, but the eventual forgiveness for the dad left me feeling bitter Some things shouldn t be forgiven In juxtaposition to Tommy s parents, Bobby and his mother were wonderful people, full of goodness and giving Bobby was the light to Tommy s darkness This was perhaps too clear cut I typically hate it when the MCs fight and argue I understood itin this story, since Tommy had never been in a relationship and didn t trust easily, but it was still exhausting The ending was a lovely, truly earned HEA, but I do wish the epilogue showed a moment vs providing an easy summary of where we are now I liked this book The emotions were real, the MCs and secondary characters fairly complex, and the writing strong, but the plot dragged a little in the middle and the misery was overwhelming It s kind of the weirdest thing I really enjoyed this book, but I m not sure if I can truly say definitively why That doesn t happen to me a lot, since I can be an opinionated bitch when it comes to books Little bit Was it a romance It didn t really feel like it It feltlike brusque, independent Tommy and Bobby, the heart of gold cop, were hot for one another, then they finally gave into those desires, after which Tommy kept Bobby at an emotional arm s length for a over year.But I en It s kind of the weirdest thing I really enjoyed this book, but I m not sure if I can truly say definitively why That doesn t happen to me a lot, since I can be an opinionated bitch when it comes to books Little bit Was it a romance It didn t really feel like it It feltlike brusque, independent Tommy and Bobby, the heart of gold cop, were hot for one another, then they finally gave into those desires, after which Tommy kept Bobby at an emotional arm s length for a over year.But I enjoyed it Again, I m not exactly sure why.Then when Tommy finally does embrace their relationship, Bobby is so taken aback that he literally says, You re freaking me the hell out, as it s such a 180 from the norm.One big selling point for me was that I was never at a loss for laughter Whether it be Tommy being a gruff asshole or the 7 kids pulling hijinks that only kids can, I was smiling or laughing A lot.The story for me wasof a welcome to your shitty life, Tommy O Shea with a large supporting cast of family members, clinging on to one another for dear life But I enjoyed it.Then enter Tommy s widowed mother and the kids latch onto her like their long lost grandmother, much to Tommy s chagrin She was hilarious and her added influence on the entire O Shea clan began to turn their lives around once and for all.Very entertaining, but if you re looking for wooing and hearts and flowers, then you may enjoy the book a bit less than I did.5 stars if for no other reason than I loved the book, but am still scratching my ass as to why No matter what life throws at you, keep in mind that, everything s gonna be alright in the end If it s not alright, then it s not the end.I liked this book very much Usually I don t like reading about dramas, but this one was bittersweet Tommy has been looking after his 7 siblings for a long time His always drunk father and his new wife have shown that they re incapable of taking care of their children, leaving their obligations to Tommy, a young man himself.Life is very hard for all of them No matter what life

one was bittersweet Tommy has been looking after his 7 siblings for a long time His always drunk father and his new wife have shown that they re incapable of taking care of their children, leaving their obligations to Tommy, a young man himself.Life is very hard for all of them Tommy has to work so much, in order to provide food and everything the children need He barely sleeps, concerned that his siblings will be forced into bad direction and he ll be incapable to help them.Then Bobby, a local cop, enters into their life and everything looks to get better They still suffer, but there s hope now and good things to look forward to.I liked the family atmosphere, their everyday problems and how they love and support each other I liked Bobby s mother and everything she did.That epilogue made my day It was lovely I recommend this book to everyone Have some tissues when you read this A sweet and cute read 4.5 stars From top to toes, this book was awesome A must read for angst lovers, police lovers, hell, just any M M romance lover It was a special, special story What a sucker punch of emotions, right Gah This book just got to me I have a huge soft spot for an older brother taking care of his siblings, and this book was a perfect example of that Tommy just about broke my heart The stuff that he had to go through just to keep his family from falling apart made me stop and appreciate all I 4.5 stars From top to toes, this book was awesome A must read for angst lovers, police lovers, hell, just any M M romance lover It was a special, special story What a sucker punch of emotions, right Gah This book just got to me I have a huge soft spot for an older brother taking care of his siblings, and this book was a perfect example of that Tommy just about broke my heart The stuff that he had to go through just to keep his family from falling apart made me stop and appreciate all I have He was sweet, loving, hard, guarded, generous a fabulously complex and well thought out character I loved watching Tommy s relationship with Bobby grow and change over time, and though I usually hate stories where couples fight or argue a lot, I think that they had to go through a lot of that due to the fact that Tommy had so many walls up Each time that Tommy let himself be vulnerable, my heart melted a little bit You can tell that J.H Knight really thought about this book From that professional looking cover nice, Dreamspinner Press to the polished, focused writing style, every aspect of this story was well crafted I can t believe this author hasn t publishedthings How much do we have to pay you, woman, to crank out somestories of this quality If you didn t have a following before, Ms Knight, I m sure you will after this one Readers, trust me, you will want to go on this journey with the O Shea family It is a bumpy, emotional ride but WELL worth your time and money Copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review Another awesome re read 1 15 19I was a bit nervous about reading this book because the reviews were so mixed But my good friend Karlijn said she really liked it and told me to just give it a go, and since I always listen to my friendsthat s what I did I m really glad I did, because I loved itTommy O Shea is 22 years old and his life is so freaking hard His father and step mom are selfish druggies addicts, who don t give a single shit about their kidsand there are 8 of them Another awesome re read 1 15 19I was a bit nervous about reading this book because the reviews were so mixed But my good friend Karlijn said she really liked it and told me to just give it a go, and since I always listen to my friendsthat s what I did I m really glad I did, because I loved itTommy O Shea is 22 years old and his life is so freaking hard His father and step mom are selfish druggies addicts, who don t give a single shit about their kidsand there are 8 of them They disappear for long periods of time, and when they do come back, they turn everything to shit So basically Tommy 22 is raising his 7 siblings, who range from 0 to 17 years old, by himself.., well they all try to help, especially Colleen He is trying his hardest to take care of his family and to provide for their needs, so the kids won t end up in the foster care system The last time that happened was a disaster and Tommy has promised them he won t let it happen again He really wants to keep that promise He works his ass off trying to make ends meet, but it isn t easy, even with the other kids trying to help out where they can Every day is a struggle Then there is Bobby Bobby is a rookie cop who has been to the O Shea house many times on disturbance calls He and Tommy know each other from high school, though they weren t friends back then Bobby is looking to change this though, and he comes over to the houseandSlowly they start building a friendship, which eventually leads to so muchBut Tommy doesn t let people in very easily He has some trust issues, and he thinks of himself as less worthy Thankfully, Bobby is not one to just give up and he has no problems fighting for Tommy and the kids Tommy and Bobby s relationship was not an easy one, but it was a beautiful one These two men were really amazing together I also want to give some extra credit to Bobby s mom She was a wonderful character The bitch, Bobby said sarcastically The nerve of the woman Going in and bringing cake there was cake, right When Tommy nodded, Bobby went on That is some messed up devil woman shit Thinking she can slide in under your radar like that That s right out of Grimm s Fairy Tales Maybe she ll try to cook them nextI highly recommend this one, it was emotional, sweet and swoon worthyMy reviews are posted on Follow me
