I really did feel for Hugo. He was with Kevin, and they seemed settled in their relationship. However, when Hugo actually gets his break with his acting career, things seem to go awry. He is away from Kevin and the children, and due to this Kevin decides to employ a nanny, and rather than helping it seems to be driving Hugo and Kevin apart.
This is where I really do feel for Hugo, and it does seem like he is being pushed away from the family, almost like they have no need for him now. The emotions are really flowing here, and Posy Roberts did a wonderful job of getting this across in the book. You just really wanted to reach into the book and just hug Hugo especially.
To try and actually feel part of the family, Hugo decides to move in with Kevin and the children, leaving somewhere he feels totally at home. To begin with everything seems fine, but very soon small cracks begin to show, but in some ways it is like Kevin is oblivious to what is happening with his relationship with Hugo.
Hugo is trying hard to fit in with everything, especially with the "friends" of Kevin, but it is not going well. Then thrown in the mix is fact that one of the children is being bullied for having two dads. This makes Hugo really think about the whole situation, and he begins to wonder if he is actually causing more problems for the family, and if they would be better off without him......
This was a fantastic read to bring this series to a close, and as I have said earlier, it does not go the way you think it will. I love how all the emotions are written in this book, and from Hugo, Kevin and even the children. I do wish that this wasn't the end of the series, and I would love to read more about Kevin and Hugo.
