“When we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them, and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.” — Robert Fulghum
I have a deeply held personal belief that most really talented writers are sadists at heart. Especially those who write books in series. You all know who you are. If you don’t, contact me, I’d be happy to name names. We, the vulnerable readers, are held hostage to your whims and those of your muses. We, the helpless readers, wait and while away the time anxiously hoping for a scrap of something from our masters‘ laptops… Wait, that went off the rails somewhere. You know what I mean!
I love Monty. There, I said it. He is a Meerkat and I love him. Or, rather, I love Finn, the guy in the Monty suit. And Aiden, his boyfriend. And Kaylee, Aiden’s five-year-old daughter. I even love Chris, Finn’s annoying roommate and Aunt Patti, Aiden’s annoying housemate. Lisa Worrall has created a junkie and I can’t wait for my next fix.
In the Marshall’s Park series, Ms. Worrall has blended a perfect balance of smoking hot sex, truly emotional moments of real human fear and love, and hilarious characters. The series is planned as a twelve part serial novel, with one short story published each month for a year. It is brilliant. A little sadistic as I already sort of alluded to, but brilliant.
In Monty Loses His Head, Kaylee wants Monty to be her show and tell for school. Finn can’t find the most important part of his costume, the head. In its place is a ransom note demanding tickets to the park and various other items. The search is on, with Chris being suspect numero uno. The outcome is sweet and the culprit unexpected. As with all the stories in the series, there is hot sex and funny interaction between Finn/Aiden/Kaylee. I went immediately to the next story…
I think the title Moving Monty In says it all. Aiden asks Finn to move in, and as the title hints, Finn says yes. Of course, with Kaylee’s show and tell approaching, both Aiden and Finn are freaking out, but for different reasons. The method they employ to relax each other won’t surprise you, but the aftermath will.
This whole series is highly recommended. A must read.
