    1. Wow.Okay I tried Um DNF at 26% This read so odd Really odd and while the title made me do a Scooby Doo head tilt, the word whippersnapper is used to describe the younger MC not as joke but seriously and that s outta my comfort zone it ain t my jam, baby First there are three POV s Oliver, Tellumo and Peggy Yeah, Peggy gets a POV and before you think I don t want vaginas in my book, it s not about that at all I m fine with the female anatomy, I have it myself shocking as that may be and it does n [...]

    2. I m giving this book four stars because it had the balls to be different It is character driven, which I like, and I also like the small town mentality that echoes through the story, which is well written Not a lot happens during the course of the story, but I did end up understanding the three main characters, Tellumo, who I liked, Peggy, who I felt sorry for, and Oliver who I understood completely since I m a crotchety old man and a lousy cook just like he is I also understood Oliver s amazeme [...]

    3. Awww, the ending made me cry This is a difficult book to rate explain It is CLEARLY a work of love, and hugely labor intensive The easiest way I can think of to explain this is that you shouldn t go into it looking for a quick read about Oliver and Tellumo The cover itself is misleading in a way This is really an ensemble piece Oliver Mo , Peggy love interest , Oliver, best friend , Mo, best friend , Peggy, church friends , Peggy, hairdresser Get the idea It s not a quick, straightforward read O [...]

    4. Hello all Welcome to another Recent Reads This weekend I had the pleasure of reading a pre release copy of Whippersnapper by Michael Rupured This story was a real treat for me Aside the fact this was my first May December romance, it s also not your typical gay romance We follow the heartwarming story of three very different, very fascinating characters as they enter each other s lives, drawn to each other as if by fate Yet despite their differences, they share one thing in common wanting to fin [...]

    5. From the blurb, you get the idea Tellumo is interested in Oliver, Peggy is interested in Oliver, Oliver is kind of a misanthrope and doesn t want to get involved with either he s too old for Tellumo and too gay for Peggy What the blurb doesn t tell you is that Tellumo ends up really good friends with Peggy and we get a really in depth view of her life so she is no evil female out to ruin the romance between our MCs In fact, I d say the book is equally divided into thirds Peggy, Oliver and Tellum [...]

    6. I loved this book I loved the characters, the story, the way its written And to think it was a close call I had never picked it up at all If it hadn t been for a blogpost a while back when I first took notice about Whippersnapper it would never have made it onto my book wishlist, and even there I kept neglecting it for another while Why Because I had never read anything by Michael Rupured before though I have eyed his holiday books than once and because this book has such an unappealing cover A [...]

    8. 3.5 This is not what I would call a romance It is actually a slice of life for three characters with very little romance included, though by the end we have high hopes that our 3 mc s will find romantic happiness There were LOL moments and some truly heartbreaking moments, but you should not read this expecting action of any kind But when all was said and done I enjoyed the story

    10. No sexual content on page whatsoever not a complaint just an observation Very sweet story about love and family There s a funny scene before Peggy is clued into the gay and thinks that Giorgio is Eduardo and Darrius s father instead of their daddy.

    12. Whippersnapper is written in the third person but from three different POVs Tellumo, an earnest young gay teacher, Peggy, a fifty something widow, and Oliver, a retired, irritable gay teacher Tellumo, the son of two lesbians who love him very much, is attracted to Oliver Peggy is also interested in Oliver, not realizing that he is gay Oliver is so hateful it s difficult at first to understand what anyone finds appealing about him.The story begins with everyone trapped at home during the Christma [...]

    13. Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review Tellumo is a twenty three year old, first year English teacher, who has set his eyes on Oliver Crumbly, a 50 something bachelor that goes to the same gym Tellumo does He s not the only one that s interested in Oliver, though Peggy Tucker, a widow about to turn sixty years old, is also determined to turn Oliver into her new husband Tellumo and Peggy are in friendly terms, having met at the gym, even if none of them realiz [...]

    14. 2.5 starsThat moment again when I feel like the only one that just didn t get it I wanted to love this book and I deeply appreciated the message about embracing love in its many forms but I like my stories to focus mainly on the MC s I don t mind strong supporting characters, I love them but their storyline shouldn t overshadow that of the main characters especially if it s not really contributing to the MC s relationship Who s this story supposed to be about precisely The MC s Tellumo and Olive [...]

    15. 2.75 StarsThis wasn t one of my favorites Since I was expecting something different from what I read, I believe my experience was tainted by my expectations I expected that navigating the obstacle of a thirty year age gap between Oliver and Tellumo hated his name would provide humor and conflict, but ultimately lead to romance That didn t happen The MCs were apart for most of the book, and the focus was on their relationships with other characters than with each other.I didn t connect with the [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this Elements of the book kept flashing into my head days after I read it A unique feature is the MC s culinary misadventures My jaw was literally dropping as I read what he was doing to food I also want to read the MC s Gay history of the USA.

    17. This isn t a romance, it s a contemporary character study family drama I d hate to rate my enjoyment of the book based solely on its not a romance properties, so I ll forego a rating.
