This book, as the title promises, is a sort of collection of stories. The chapters are mile stones in the couples' lives, from marriage to childbirth as well as life in general, health, raising kids, changing jobs, retirement and most importantly ALWAYS staying the big happy family even if not all members are related. Looking back at each of the 4 men - Evan and Matt - Jim and Griffin - and who they were before and who they are now, the people who surround them, the happiness they brought into each others' lives and the happiness they got from this amazing family made the whole ride, from book one till this very final one simply EPIC. I LOVE books who give us a realistic sense of the couple and the family for more than a few months, and this kind of following the couples for YEARS is my favorite for sure.
I applaud Tere for giving us the WHOLE series and ask, if I may, she find it in herself to make us another epic series like this one with more wonderful and genuine couples to follow.
If you haven't read this series you have no reason to read this one but it's also a great opportunity to pick up the first one and immerse yourself in them from the start. I'm still not giving up on my idea of listening to the series from the start.
Naturally, if you've read this series this book is a MUST read (You might need Kleenex..)
