Culter was looking forward to moving into his new apartment
with his best friend Paul, but when the time came to move in
all Jack’s plans were changed. First off Paul bailed on him
to move in with his pregnant girlfriend Melissa and then
Paul and Melissa took the liberty of finding him a new
roommate, Melissa’s gay brother Cliff.
not looking for a relationship, and the attraction he felt
toward Cliff was one he tried hard to ignore. When Cliff
gets involved with someone else Jack couldn’t keep his
feelings to himself any longer.
Life or Something Scary Like That has a wonderful
ensemble cast. The characters are fantastic and fun. I
loved the plot of the story as well, but I found the writing
style a bit hard to get into in the beginning. I would have
liked for the writer’s technique to be a bit smoother, but
as I continued to read I liked the story better and better.
I also would have liked to have a bit more focus on Jack and
Cliff’s relationship, there was more relationship building
between their well-meaning meddlesome friends than between
them, and Cliff and Jack’s communication skills with each
other were extremely frustrating. Even after they revealed
how they felt about each other they still had trouble
trusting in each other. I feel the author, TC Blue, has
more to tell about Life or Something Scary Like That
and I have a strong feeling Ben, the voice of reasoning
between Cliff and Jack, will have a lot to do with it. In
the end Life or Something Scary Like That was
a good story and I’m glad I stuck with it because there is
so much about it to like.
