Review by: Loretta Orr on June 05, 2011 : (no rating)
"Cabin Life Ain't Easy" was fun to read and typical of the author's unique sense of humor. It almost reminded me of s type of "The Hangover" mentality in the characters portrayed in the book. They are raucous, uncouth, reckless and all about drinking,having a good time,having sex,and narrowly escaping getting in trouble or situations they can't get out of again. It makes the reader wonder "what is it with these guys", unless you are one ,and then it would all make perfect sense. I laughed, shook my head, and thought "I want to see another installment of a new ...Ain't Easy story", with added plot twists and situations these guys do get tangled up in. Be prepared for rough language and sex, but in this case a necessary element to capture the right kind of mood and read on the characters involved and what it is that makes them tick!
