Knitter in His Natural Habitat
I've never been a fan of bitchy, flighty men in my literature but Amy makes Stanley lov I'm going to be forthright and declare ahead of time that anyone who knows me is aware of my special love for Amy. I've never been a fan of bitchy, flighty men in my literature but Amy makes Stanley loveable. He really isn't that much of a princess. I think he is much more of one in his own mind than he truly is.

And Johnny Johnny delivers that. Knitter is a tightly woven tale did you see what I've done there? Jeremy, one of the main characters in How To Raise An Honest Rabbit 3 of this series , really is a star in this one as well, providing a key element in the final scenes. Nicely done on that.

Except for the eventual nausea from watching the ball roll around. Still, she captures the visceral pleasure a knitter has in the craft. Stanley and Johnny are a great couple. Despite the sometimes heavy content of the book, their relationship comes across as an easy, lovely joining. The less said about a certain turquoise blue and tangerine acrylic yarn poncho, the better.

It all felt too much too soon. But I did like this book for three reasons: - The sense of family. Not the one you were born with, but the one you found along the way. It took me back to the Promises series.
I loved them even more in this book. View all 12 comments. Apr 26, Amy rated it liked it Shelves: audiobook-finished. I adore Amy Lane. And I love the Granby Knitting series. But this book just did NOT do it for me. At all.
Letters from Pet Age
I will definitely read the next book in the series because it seems to focus on Aiden and Jeremy :. Oct 21, Kaje Harper rated it really liked it Shelves: m-m. I really liked Stanley and his journey to figure out who he was meant to be, especially because he didn't have to become a hero to be a good guy. He's a self-described "aging slutty bottom" who decides his life isn't working, and takes a look at the parts that are good in search of a way to make it better. He takes up the zen of knitting, and the comfort of friends and the family you choose rather than the one you are born to.

I enjoyed Stanley's realization that he'd imbued a purely sexual relationship with Craw with too much meaning, and in the process realized that he wanted more from life. I loved how finding Johnny brought him out of his glittery and self-deprecating protective shell. I had a tougher time getting a handle on Johnny. I liked him a lot, but didn't follow his choices, emotions or actions as well.
He was great for Stanley, almost too good, although who can argue with that. I appreciated the glimpse of the other couples, Crawford and Ben, Jeremy and Aiden, from the outside of their relationships. The climax is a train-wreck of bad decisions on the part of several characters, and bad luck. Jeremy more than paid his karmic debt, and I hope he and Aiden can repair the damage done to their relationship in the process. It might even lead to a better balance in the future. BTW the author has given us a free little snippet of Jeremy and Aiden after the events in this book that is sweetly hopeful: Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night One of the things I do appreciate from Amy Lane is that her women are such positive characters.
They are not all wise or self-confident, but some are, and they almost all love the men in their lives, gay or straight, fiercely and with compassion tempered by humor. In a genre over-filled with bitchy, obstructive and unpleasant female characters of whom I've written my share Amy's books are filled with women I would love to have as friends. Oct 29, Heller rated it really liked it Shelves: m-m , contemporary , mm-bad-boys. He is so bitchy and snarky but so extremely loyal and sweet. I loved him and I laughed out loud more than once at the things he said and thought.
Stanley is at loose ends. His hookups with Craw have ended since Ben came into the picture and he's not a club guy anymore.
In a fit of wine induced pity he decides to learn how to knit and be celibate. Johnny the UPS delivery guy walks into the picture and into Stanley's heart. It's insta-love and works so well. I enjoyed Stanley and Johnny together they had so much chemistry and were just perfect for one another. They were sweet but not too sweet.
Johnny has a past and it catches up with him. We get a bit of angst here but nothing over the top. Lots of cameos from characters from the other books in the series and Ariadne is especially wonderful here as she and Stanley bond over knitting. If you enjoyed the other two books in the series you'll love this one. It's by no means standalone, you must read the others in the series to understand what is going on and get to know the players.

This is a book you need to read as part of the series to really enjoy it but it has lots of its own charms. Johnny is someone we know of from the previous book and his story is compelling. I am really happy he finds his prince.
Stanley, we also met in a previous book and he is great. He learns to be treasured and treasure himself and really value his life in this book. The romance is a bit insta love but the dating is nice. Oct 20, Tailtiu rated it liked it. In my opinion there's no real connection between the MCs and the showdown with Jeremy is unbelievable and over the top.

I admit, I was a bit worried to read this book.
