    Shawn, a short, curvy man see status update , finds something to do in his garden at 4 p.m every day That s when Hippy Hotpants, with his long white boy plait, walks by with his dogs Shawn is lusting after said Hippy Hotpants, so he sticks his arse out in the air and continues to replant strawberry bushes.This book feels very much like slapstick, and that is most definitely not my humour I prefer dry and ironic I still giggled many times, but some of Shawn s actions and accidents were over Shawn, a short, curvy man see status update , finds something to do in his garden at 4 p.m every day That s when Hippy Hotpants, with his long white boy plait, walks by with his dogs Shawn is lusting after said Hippy Hotpants, so he sticks his arse out in the air and continues to replant strawberry bushes.This book feels very much like slapstick, and that is most definitely not my humour I prefer dry and ironic I still giggled many times, but some of Shawn s actions and accidents were over the top Shawn, prone to calamities, is a victim of Shawn s Law, which is like Murphy s Law ON STEROIDS He s always setting things on fire, stabbing his toe, tripping, breaking things, walking into an ant s nest, picking up a dangerous octopus, getting attacked by birds, talking to serial killers on the phone oh, YES, Shawn s ex was a serial killer who ATE gay men , and so on He is on a first name basis with every nurse, doctor, and EMT within a 50 mile radius All I can say is Thank the gods Shawn lives in Australia, which has universal healthcare He would be so fucked if he lived in the States To make matters worse, Shawn s mum has Alzheimer, so she s quite prone to accidents too Shawn, who is a commissioned part time artist, is his mum s main caretaker and doesn t have much free time, which Hippy Hotpants, an environmentalist whose real name is Harvey, bemoans Shawn s mum is portrayed as being infantile, prone to running around naked under the sprinklers, and making ballloon babies out of strawberry flavored condoms I fully admit this made me cringe Alzheimer disease isn t funny The book is told from alternating first person POVs, Shawn s in the present as the two men meet and begin a relationship, and Harvey s looking back on their many, uh, adventures If you read Amy Lane s Shiny , the structure will feel familiar We know by chapter 3 that there is a HEA, and the remainder of the book fills us in on the details I can t say I connected with either MC Shawn is naive and childish His profanity of choice includes words like fudge, sugar cookies, cheese with pancakes, and darn He worries that because he hasn t had anal sex for so long his anus and prostate have shriveled up and died Hey, it could happen.Harvey is a bit self righteous and a tad au naturel for my tastes, but he is patient and really into Shawn Harvey freeballs it at all times He loves to fondle Shawn s meaty arse, but Shawn keeps breaking up with Harvey Because He doesn t want Harvey to die This is a Renae Kaye book, so it s cute and well written, and has a certain charm, even if the slapstick humour didn t fully appeal to ME but it might certainly appeal to you.If you like outrageous comedy based on improbable situations with plenty of sweetness, I recommend this book Shawn s Law is unlike Kaye s other books It s not my favorite, but kudos to the author for her creativity and range Closer to 2.5 stars, rounded up If this were not a Ranae Kaye book, I d go all fed up Tony Soprano on its ass Because that blurb Sounds a bit cray cray, no But it s Ranae Kaye, people So I m all

    3.5 starsGawwwwI really adore Renae Kaye s books There s sweetness and quirkiness and sometimes a tad bit of emotion And Shawn s Law fits the bill.Shawn is an adorably charming, shy, honorable young manfull time caregiver for his mother with Alzheimersand perpetually stricken with bad luck Not just your run of the mill bad luckbut the kind where not only anything that can go wrong will go wrong, but it will go wrong epically, often painfully, and will steal a few hearts along the 3.5 starsGawwwwI really adore Renae Kaye s books There s sweetness and quirkiness and sometimes a tad bit of emotion And Shawn s Law fits the bill.Shawn is an adorably charming, shy, honorable young manfull time caregiver for his mother with Alzheimersand perpetually stricken with bad luck Not just your run of the mill bad luckbut the kind where not only anything that can go wrong will go wrong, but it will go wrong epically, often painfully, and will steal a few hearts along the way.Shawn has a huge crush on his neighbor who walks his dogs past Shawn s house everyday at 4pm Shawn does whatever he can to catch a glimpse of Hippy Hotpants during this walk by And one day, Shawn s Law happens to land Shawn flat on his back in his front yard, looking up into his neighbor s concerned face Turns out, said neighbor has been into Shawn all along.Hippy Hotpants, who we later come to know as Harley, is so lovable He s kindI loved that kindness And he s patient with Shawn And he draws Shawn out of the small shell of a life he s tried to hide in I wanted to hug the both of them and just squeeze tight and shower them with affection as they made their way through the sometimes awkward oftentimes adorable growth of their relationship.And that s when the book kinda threw me for a loop and went off track a bit There were some misunderstandings, a long string of one sided blow jobs used as a sort of currency in the relationship, and what I originally found so sweet about Shawn turned slightly annoying and unkind even.Luckily, the author was able to bring me back around and all s well that ends well, I suppose.All in all, I liked this, as I knew I wouldRenae Kaye and all, and plenty of her signature humor and charm I probably would have loved it even, if Shawn s unintentional but undeniable cruel streak hadn t reared it s ugly head growl

    4.5 stars Shawn s Law is the fourth Renae Kaye book I ve read I fell in love with her books after reading The Shearing Gun last year and I always look forward to her new releases Shawn s Law is no different I really, really enjoyed this book and it s a very strong 4.5 star read for me Not my favorite from her, but still a book I will happily read again.I love Shawn He s a great guy who is a victim of Shawn s Law, which is like Murphy s Law but a million times crazier Some of the stuff that 4.5 stars Shawn s Law is the fourth Renae Kaye book I ve read I fell in love with her books after reading The Shearing Gun last year and I always look forward to her new releases Shawn s Law is no different I really, really enjoyed this book and it s a very strong 4.5 star read for me Not my favorite from her, but still a book I will happily read again.I love Shawn He s a great guy who is a victim of Shawn s Law, which is like Murphy s Law but a million times crazier Some of the stuff that happened to him made me laugh so hard He s like a walking disaster, which is funny to read about And he s had such rotten luck with his love life But he s also a really caring, patient person who looks after his mum who has Alzheimer s and never really complains about it or gets angry about the way things have turned out.Then you have Harley, or as Shawn called him in the beginning, Hippy Hotpants I love Harley, too He wanted Shawn the moment he saw him but held back until he couldn t anyHe had no idea what he was getting himself into, but he was there for Shawn and I could tell he really did love him.I really liked the two of them together, even if they could be frustrating at times There were a couple of times, especially towards the end, where I was really shaking my head I think it was to be expected, though, since Shawn had some issues with himself and then with the whole Shawn s Law things, I imagine it could get very frustrating to be with someone like that But the two of them together were so sweet, and they did really care about each other.This book is so funny It s hard not to laugh at some of the things that happen to Shawn I mean, I don t know anyone, even myself, who can get into situations like that It s crazy and so much fun and it had me laughing most of the time while I was reading it Even the very last page.The Alzheimer s part of this book hit close to home for me, having seen my nanny grandmother suffer with it and also having a great uncle, who lives in the States, currently suffering with it I think it made me feel really attached to Estelle It also prepared me for the ending So while this book was hilarious and I laughed my ass off, there was also a bit of an emotional attachment for me, too.Shawn s Law is definitely a book I will read again, like many of Renae Kaye s books It s such a good book and I cannot recommend it enough if you want a good laugh And it has left me evenexcited for her next book A copy of this book was provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    This was not my cup of tea.Shawn s poor self image was quite grating after a while He could also be incredibly stupid at times Just one example view spoiler I heard him swallow, and then he sort of muttered into the pillow, My hole I swear it hasn t been used for so long, it s dried up and shriveled I blinked rapidly, trying to work out how a seemingly intelligent man would think that way Do you know what To this day, his reasoning escapes me Baby, I said gently I don t thi This was not my cup of tea.Shawn s poor self image was quite grating after a while He could also be incredibly stupid at times Just one example view spoiler I heard him swallow, and then he sort of muttered into the pillow, My hole I swear it hasn t been used for so long, it s dried up and shriveled I blinked rapidly, trying to work out how a seemingly intelligent man would think that way Do you know what To this day, his reasoning escapes me Baby, I said gently I don t think it works that way, at all But let me reassure you, if it is dried up and shriveled, then there s only one thing for it Liquid, and lots of it With that, I did what I had wanted to do since that day I first saw him digging in his front garden, wiggling his butt around in the air and giving boners to unsuspecting gay men I buried my face between those meaty cheeks and dined out hide spoiler The POV was really strange to me Shawn s POV takes place in the present, but Harley s take place in the future, remembering the past It was weird.The constant slap stick, accidents, and self deprecation were off putting after a while But mostly I hate, hate, hate when characters break up in some self sacrificing gesture It s stupid, and, in this one, it was redundant and unnecessary.Ultimately I was disappointed in the character development and story.OH And that cover Ugh Justno So, so bad.See Susan s review for a fareloquent explanation would recommend any other Renae Kaye book other than this one to new readers Especially The Shearing Gun Renae s stories are absolutely wonderfulusually
