This is book 4 in the Life Lessons serie and should be read in order.

It is...."phew"...a fitting end, a satisfiying read in typical Kaje Harper style. I'm just in love with all the characters, I want to watch them struggle, overcome their problems and want to see them happy.

It is a good end. It is a realistic end. And I'm going to reread this serie for sure.

Tony and Mac: a very full life 8. September 2013
Von Spifette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Tony and Mac, Mac and Tony, what are we going to do with you? Or rather, what are we going to do without you?? These two men, the life they share with each other, their two children, friends, family and co-workers, is so full and fully realized. Full of celebration, fears, little worries, big grins, difficult decisions, easy paths when the light is so clear, hesitations and willful demands for love and lust so rightfully won through battles waged, big and small, inside kitchens, classrooms, squad rooms and hearts. Whew! Exactly!!

In this latest installment regarding all as I've described above (and so much more), Tony and Mac are dealing with many things, some remnants of the near past, some from the not so near and some new challenges thrown into their already very busy and complicated lives. Just like all of us, sometimes they are successful in their initial attempts at making the right decision, saying the right thing, and sometimes not. Either way, they somehow - ok, not really somehow, they work on everything - find themselves and their ways back to each other.

Their humor, their particular ways of interacting and reacting, their very unique voices are very strong in this story. Along with that, they still continue to discover new things about each other, have trepidations about being vulnerable, worry about how one will feel about the other's words or behavior. In simple words: they are two very real and fully realized characters, two men, working their way through this very difficult, joyous, frightening and scrumptious world. Together.
A slight spoiler, a moment of levity (even humor) during a very intense situation, which leads to a very Mac and Tony way of dealing with it all. I actually made that note on my Kindle.

These two are definitely still very hot for each other, sex sometimes manifesting in ways that range from the very sweet and gentle and all the way to the rough and grumble. Demanding. Wanting. Needing. Every time is so very them and it all works. Every part of this story works,including both of them growing as people, together, in this relationship of theirs.
I love the way these two communicate. I love the way these two are with their two kids. I love the way they have doubts and worries, and how they deal with them. All of this praise is not because things are perfect and they deal with it all perfectly, instead it's because they are not perfect. Love and life and kids and fear and shame and growth are all hard work and far from perfect, and all of this makes Mac and Tony so very relatable and completely interesting.

Kaje knows how to write people, of all kinds, all ages, from Grandparents to little kids and everyone in between. Each person is given a voice and is allowed to speak fully with it. There's a scene when Anna is recounting something that happened at school, another student saying something not so nice, and just as she finishes that bit, she goes right to talking about a field trip coming up and can she go. I remember laughing out loud at that and could hear it so clearly. The same can be said for so many other moments in this book.

I won't say how this novel ends but it's not usually something I respond to very strongly. However, in this case, I LOVED it. Simply loved it. This is probably one of the best books I have read all year long. Ms Harper, you freaking rock my world with your words. :)

Oh wow, Tony & Mac, as fabulous as ever. 8. September 2013
Von L. Powell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Oh wow - well that was a Saturday well spent.

Learning Curve was everything I have come to expect of Kaje Harper's Life lessons series. After four full length novels and some short stories it would have been easy for these characters to become tired and the storyline repetitive - but that was in NO WAY the case.

As ever there was a criminal case as the background, with the main focus of the book being Mac and Tony's relationshi and as ever both parts were handled beautifully. I love the way Kaje Harper writes the crime side of her stories, they are interesting, tense and yet not over angsty - it's all necessary, not too much. As Mac wasn't actively at work in this book there was less Oliver and co - though they were there - but this didn't stop the detective part of the novel being brilliant.

SPOILER ALERT

I loved the fact that we met Mac's family in this novel and found out more about what makes him tick. We'd known it wasn't a happy childhood and this was a great insight into Mac. Kaje Harper said this may be the last book, I hope it's only last for a while because I feel there is still plenty of territory to explore there. And I really, really, really want to know more about Mac's brother.

END SPOILER

As ever the main focus of this book was Mac and Tony's relationship (sorry I've got to do this I LOVE MAC!! I want him for my birthday with whipped cream and a cherry on top and yes I know he's only fictional. Ok, now that's out of the way..) and again, four books in, the worry at the back of my mind was, is it going to be boring? We've had the getting together, the coming out of the closet, the wedding, the family, where is there to go? There was plenty of places to go and it wasn't at all boring. With every page I felt the love grow between the two of them. it's in the little things as well as the big. The looks, the touches, the worry. They centre each other, it's not just about the sex (though, good lord, the sex is hot) it's about them. And every look, touch and worry makes my heart beat faster.

I love these books and will most definitely read and re-read them again and again. I hope against hope it isn't the last we've heard from them, I'm sure there is a million stories they have yet to tell us. Thank you Kaje Harper for a fabulous series. But mostly thank you for Mac.

If you've not read these books I ask, what the heck are you waiting for? Go and check them out now!!

All questions answered 9. September 2013

In the first "Life Lessons" story when we meet Tony and Mac, we hear of many ordinary problems and challenges for each main character. Tony is a young openly gay teacher, good at his job but maybe not sure of how well the school will support him if there are problems. Mac is a cop hiding in the closet for fear of how other cops might react if they knew he was gay. Mac's daughter Anna doesn't see her father as often as she would like and isn't as keen on going to church as her Aunt Brenda. Ben loves his visits with "Uncle Tony" and wishes his mother didn't drink and bring home men cos sometimes they're scary.

Now after three previous books and two short stories in the series, in "Learning Curves" Tony and Mac, and the children Anna and Ben, are all in a better space, even considering Mac's long recovery from the head injury he got in "Homework". This story has a good mix of reality with wishful thinking about how life could be for a couple of almost fairytale heroes. The teacher gets to help with a high school Gay Straight Alliance, and the gay macho cop keeps on being a good guy and would be saviour. We meet some of Mac's family, and learn some of the nasty background to why Mac left home when he was 18. We see the children settling into a new home and learn how to save a piniata from being smashed ;-)

Even if some parts of the tale are predictable, overall this is a really satisfying round up to the series. The message for tolerance and understanding are light and fit reasonably well in the context of the story, they're not needed but don't hurt. And the sex scenes are pretty hot too ;-)

If you haven't read any of the previous books, you could still enjoy this book. You would however get much more out of "learning Curve" if you read the other books in sequence too. If you have read the others in the series, you'll love this. :-)

Just my 2 cents worth 9. September 2013
Von ChinaBlue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
There is little I can add that hasn't already been written in the previous 5 star reviews. Kaje Harper is an outstanding writer and one of my very favorite authors. This book, the fourth (and presumably the last) in the series, is outstanding, arguably the best of the series. It flawlessly, and quite realistically, integrates a number of subplots, dots all the i's, crosses all the t's and ties up loose threads from previous books without resorting to some lame epilogue or using such hackneyed phrasing such as I just did - which exquisitely illustrates why she is a writer and I, a mere reader. Starting with the first book, the evolution of the relationship between Mac and Tony as they live through and learn from their own Life Lessons is truly a rewarding reading experience. Highly recommended to all readers who prefer to avoid fluff and appreciate realism in life and love.

Excellent 7. September 2013
Von Marcus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A wonderful book from start to finish; it was fascinating to see the characters evolve over the course of the series, and, as always in this series, peripheral characters and even the children added to the narrative. It was sad, however, to sense that the series was coming to an end.
