As with so many books by Eric Arvin, this book was simultaneously fun, funny, and thought-provoking – pretty much like life itself. Nothing wrong with that, just not my cup of tea. His life seems full and he is happy with the status quo… until he meets the editor of his new book. Galley Proof is Eric’s latest release. There was no cheating rolling eyes. You make it all worthwhile.
Oh and I will move, yup, so what about you Ana? We can hardly wait for the next recipe.
Even Lucile was fun to read and I felt bad for poor Curtis and his blending ability. And I mean that in a good way. Happily, Arvin gives us affirmative answers to all these questions. Will he ever go home again?
I get why it happened, I think but I found myself getting disinterested in the story. Logan’s previous book was a best seller. Brock encourages him to shake things up a bit and he does but it doesn’t quite turn out the way he planned when he falls for Brock. If only Arvin had said what he made his character say: Every joke gets a laugh, but they don’t come cheap.
I agree gally the style of writing did change from wacky rom-com to more introspective from the first to the second part, but so did Logan and it really didn’t bother me.

Florine on Jimmy Simpson: While Brock remains in the background in the statesLogan meets some interesting people, some of which were so funny that they had me laughing out loud.

If it had to be published, why couldn’t it be an in-house newsletter to amuse the people who are able to recognise and appreciate the publishing jokes.
There’s the funny old next door neighbor as well as the above-mentioned competing religious groups and a crazy mother. Brock hasn’t talked to dad in years he tells no one else.
Rameau’s Review Archive: Galley Proof by Eric Arvin | portable pieces of thoughts
Want to Read Currently Reading Read. All the while he is tickling our funny bones, he is aiming more for our heartstrings. Like Brock before, she just wanted to push him a bit to the directions she wanted. I got two theme songs for this one: Spencer was quick to back down, as well. Logan’s BFF and roommate Janey was hysterical. Then he crosses the line from a fine comedy to unadulterated spoof and ruins the effect.
Eric writes about human emotions, feelings, and the drama which normally comes along with them.
