Join the fun in this vibrant first installment of the new romantic comedy serial by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths!
After a drunken night of hot sex in Vegas, strangers Will Patterson and Dr. Patrick McCloud wake up married. A quickie divorce is the most obvious way out—unless you’re the heir of a staunchly Catholic mafia boss with a draconian position on the sanctity of marriage.
Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Will and Patrick don’t like it, or each other, but they have to make the best of it until they can find another way out of their marriage. To ensure the trust fund Will’s charitable foundation relies on isn’t revoked by his mobster grandfather, he and Patrick travel to Will’s hometown of Healing, South Dakota, posing as a newlywed couple in the throes of true love at first sight.
Complicating their scheme are Will’s unresolved feelings for his all-too-recent ex-boyfriend Ryan, and Patrick’s desire to get back to the only thing that really matters to him in life: neurosurgery. Will they fool everyone? Or will the mafia get wind that their marriage is a fake? Throw their simmering attraction into the mix and all bets are off!
Episode 1 of 6 in the Wake Up Married serial.
Not much mystery here, since the title says it all. After a fun night in Las Vegas, Will and Patrick wake up finding themselves married. That it’s just the start of the complications, because divorce is a decision not so easy to take since the consequences could be harmful to others. Would they be able to work together to makes this work?
It was a very entertaining book to read, it had a lot of fun about it. It was easy to read and the plot was fun. I can’t help picturing as if it was a movie, because has that kind of style. I had so much fun reading it.
Bothe main characters were very likable and both had things I love and hate about them. In Patrick’s case, I just can’t stand people who introduce themselves as Dr, or any other title, and not just by their name, so Patrick had me very angry at so many moments, but I’m willing to forgive that to him because he was such a great character, he was my favorite. I loved the way he acted, a little bit of arrogance on him, but that was part of the fun, He was just so outspoken and I loved it.
Will was such an anxious guy, I can see how easy would be to must reader to relate to him and to loved him. There were some interesting elements on him that made him more realistic. He was, at times so frustrating, but it was ok. I loved a character who can transmit emotions to the reader and they did just fine.
For me, it’s good and bad that it’s a part of a series. Good because as nice as the characters were, it’s great to see there’s more about them. But I feel it’s also bad, because the book finished without an appropriate closure for readers that might not be reading the next on the series. I liked it a lot and I will be reading it.
Overall I think it was very nice, easy to read book, and can be enjoyed by anyone who like to read fun and free of angst books.
