It's a rare book that can make you laugh from the first page until the last, but West has a knack for writing them. Hammock starts off with Zach's sticky predicament and leads us through twists and turns, and the world of male stripers (*ahem* male entertainment dancers), while he tries to clear his name. West also has a knack for some of the best female leads I've ever read: no easy feat! Zora was instantly my favorite character, and while I definitely felt for her dealing with the situation while massively pregnant, she was no less kick-a$$. I loved her attitude and ability to sleuth out the truth, deal with the situation, all while still managing to be there for her (slightly clueless) brother. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that you should check out this book--it's fun, funny, and a quick read!
