A bit about the book…..
Adam, Luke and Russell Bachelor are three brothers who, as their surname suggests are anything but settled…
Adam is addicted to The Wrong Kind of Girls; Luke bears the scars of a savage divorce; and Russell’s love life contains nothing but heartache.
When, months shy of his 40th wedding anniversary, their dad announces that he’s leaving their mum to try his hand at the single life the boys are thrown into turmoil. Now as well as sorting out their own complicated love lives, the Bachelors have got to sort out their parents’ too…or face losing the one thing they always count on.
Novel Kicks’ verdict: The Importance of Being a Bachelor:
This book is classic Mike Gayle. I found it to be warm, funny and an insight into the fact that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s disappeared. I wanted to bang the boys heads together but found myself caring about the Bachelor boys, despite their behaviour towards the women in their lives.
It’s rare that I read a book in one sitting but this book was one of the exceptions.. I couldn’t put it down. A wonderful book; one I really enjoyed reading.
