The Odd Throuple by Jess Whitecroft

Friends, lovers or both? Laora read The Odd Throuple.

From the blurb:

When writer Jack loses his husband he knows he can always rely on his best friend Alex, even if Alex is on his third twentysomething girlfriend in as many months because he can't cope with the gruesome prospect of turning forty.

It's been a hard road, but a year later things are looking up - widowed Jack is just starting to think about moving on, and even Alex's midlife crisis appears to be simmering down when he triumphantly announces that he's finally dating a grown-up.

And then along comes David.

Sexy, adventurous, funny David makes Jack wonder if it might even be time to think about romance again, but David has some secrets of his own, not least that he's already dating a newly out bisexual named Alex. Add a prosthetic leg, a doorstep moment of awkwardness, and a basement power cut, and soon the three are tangled up in enough coincidences and misunderstandings to give even the most hardened conspiracy theorist a headache.

Death, divorce, disability - life comes hard for the men in this unconventional romantic comedy of errors, absurdities, and things you should never ever do with an uncooked chicken.

Laora's Review:

I had such a good time reading this book. There is hunour, a handful of jealous moments and a good hfn/hea with Alex, Jack and David. 

The various chapters are told from one of these men their pov. I found all the characters well developed with their own quirks and strong points. I liked how two separate friendships, after a bit of a regroup, brought them all together romantically.
