Publisher's Summary

Tommy O'Shea is raising his seven younger brothers and sisters without any help from his drug-abusing father and stepmother. Since he was 15 years old, he's managed to keep the children fed and out of foster care. It takes up every ounce of his energy, and the last thing he needs is romance complicating his life further.
Rookie cop Bobby McAlister doesn't belong in Tommy's harsh world, but Tommy can't push him out. As their unlikely friendship turns into a tentative relationship, they weather the daily storm of Tommy's life with a lot of laughs and more than a few arguments.
Tommy isn't used to trusting outsiders, and he's never asked for help in his life. But when a tragedy strikes the O'Shea family and threatens everything he's fought for, he'll have to learn to do both to recover from the brutal hit.

Engaging story!

What made the experience of listening to The Last Thing He Needs the most enjoyable?

A really nice story dealing with a life of poverty, overcoming parental abuse and overall a nice love story. A reasonable attempt made to develop the characters and the story wasn't entirely obvious in all areas, so was fairly engaging. In this genre you always have several obstacles put in the way of the love affair and the issue of trust and making time were dealt with well. The final end obstacle was a bit incongruous with the character but this can be overlooked.
