This book was flipping adorable. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Zeke and Jill because they were both such low key people but it wasn’t like they didn’t care about things. Jill just simplified her life to the point that all she cared about were penguins and in this case it was her very own Galapagos penguins. Zeke just never had to take care of himself because he had his family around to help him and while that was great it didn’t mean that he couldn’t take care of things. So when Jill kind of just barrels him over he knows that she is the one he wants to take care of. Which is just so freaking adorable. He has to figure out what she needs and how to take care of them when he has never had to figure that out even for himself before. It’s a whole new world for him. I also really enjoyed the way that the characters handled the surprise pregnancy. It was refreshing to have the father just flat out state that mother could have as much or as little interaction with the child as she wanted after the birth. That was an interesting twist but one that worked for me.
I’m really enjoying the direction that the author has taken for the Boys of the Bayou series. I was a bit skeptical at first because I loved the original books so much but I am happy to say that I am loving getting to read about more Landry boys and I’m looking forward to the next book that is Landry adjacent. I’m hoping that will mean that Knox and Fiona will get a book as well because I would love to read more of their love/hate relationship. Especially after their interaction in this book. Things are heating up all over the bayou. Ultimately, for a fun read and a good laugh don’t miss out on this book!
