Will & Patrick Wake Up Married – Wake Up Married, Book 1
Authors: Leta Blake and Alice Griffiths
Themes & Genres: LGBT, Contemporary Romance, Humor, gay, Vegas
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!
What I think of the book:
Will & Patrick Wake Up Married is something I’ve read a long time ago, but didn’t review because… I really can’t remember. Maybe it was because I was still new to blogging and wasn’t posting as many reviews as I am now. Whatever the case, I’ve decided it was time to correct my mistake and post my opinion on the first book in the Wake Up Married series.
I’m not sure whether to start with the plot or the characters.
Obviously, it was the plot – as much of it that was shown in the blurb – that grabbed my attention and made me get the e-book. I just thought that it sounded like a really funny situation, and I ended up being right.
The thing I remember most about this book was its humor. I can’t quote a funny like or a joke from it, but I remember laughing while reading this book.
And it wasn’t only due to its premise; it was also because of the characters.
However, it wasn’t all fun.
While there’s humor in this book, you also get some more serious situations that make you symphatize with the characters. They aren’t just two goofballs, spewing one one-liner after the other. They make you feel for them – along with laughing at them – and they make you think what you’d do if you found yourself in their situation.
All in all, it’s a book that left such a strong impression on me that even though I read it a long time ago, I didn’t need to re-read it to write this review.
Who would I recommend this book to? I’d recommend Will & Patrick Wake Up Married to anyone in need of a few laughs.
My rating: (5/5 Las Vegas signs)
Would I re-read this book? Yes, and probably soon.
Am I interested in other books by this authors? Yes. I want to read the rest of the series.
