RANDY LOVE AT YOUR SERVICE.
by Shay Carter.
"Randy Love at your service" is about a family of John Love and Majorie Love whose children are Heather Love who is a graduate at Carbridge with a degree in architecture and secured a coveted position at Turner Wells Architects, James Love who is a professional solicitor and married to Flis Love with a daughter Annabel and finally Randy Love, graduated with a business degree, quite fun loving and a free spirit. John Love, the father is worried about his son, Randy's life and future, so he decides it's time to come in and help his son become a responsible man, not that person who is going to run and hide from illegimate children and mothers.

With his life at an edge, Randy takes on part time jobs, first at The Old Coach House Inn as a dishwasher for three hours and at Huffington Ladies College, doing work in the kitchen but finally gets a full time job with the help of Shelley from Background Recruitment,as a counter clerk from Stornford Building Society. Unfortunately before settling down, the landlord, Mickey writes to him about the eviction notice because the communal areas were not kept clean as it is required in the section 14 of the contract. The best of friends, Randy, Ian, Nadir, and Toby who went to Milton Grammar School together share unexpectional friendship that they usually hang out in bars celebrating birthdays, job promotions and their lives.

My favorite part of this book is where Randy, with the pressure and teasing conversations of Michael, his father's financial advisor and friend, talks him into taking on the offer of Nicky, his to be girlfriend, to stay at her place. Even when Randy claims that she drive him crazy. At last, Nicky takes Randy at her parents' home, sounds serious though unexpected of her even when Randy never seemed committed about relationships with women.

I have not seen anything to dislike about the book because it had taught me to stir up life to a responsible direction.

I rate this book 3 out of 4 because writing this book is more like a piece of motive and guidance, rescuing people and letting them know what they are good at and they are worthy. And that trying to escape what life has thrown back at you is not the solution, but rather standing firm and making a clear decision to face it. Everyone can read this book because it is a sensational one of a kind.

I agree that this books shows the importance of learning to be responsible. Randy was having a hard time growing up. Maybe Nicky can help him mature. I enjoyed your interesting comments on this book!

What a wonderful theme for a book! We all should remember to focus on the positive things in life.

Randy definitely sounds like he had some growing up to do as a person. It was interesting to see what you thought about this book. Still, I don't think it's for me. Thanks!

Agree, the teaches you some good lessons but these are hidden in rubbish attitude which Randy shows. Nice to see this review from a new perspective.
