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!
When I first read the title I thought “wow, sounds like something I might have done” we have all had those moments where you do something and then wish you could undo it.. well Will and Patrick have done the ultimate oops.. they got married, while drunk, after just meeting each other! Woops! So imagine their surprise when they wake up together and realize not only are they married.. but they quickly come to understand they can’t just run down and get an annulment. Life has just changed for Will and Patrick.
So this is the first book in a six part serial style story and while I swore I would never read this style of book again, or I would at the very least wait until they were all published before I started the series. Here I am waiting now for the next installment and wondering what is going to happen to this happy couple! Stay tuned as I take you on a tour of married life and the wedded bliss of Will and Patrick!
