Flamboyant book café owner Luca Moretti and geeky doctor Gus Hansen have been together for six years when the Supreme Court ruling makes same-sex marriage legal in all states. On June 26, 2015, Gus gets down on one knee and Luca screams yes.
On their wedding day, shortly before the ceremony, Luca’s mother explodes in anger, calling him a freak. The reason? He’s wearing a white veil, sprinkled with crystals.
Their relationship has been strained for a long time, and her words trigger traumatic memories. Instead of walking down the aisle, Luca runs.
Away from his mother. Away from Gus.
Gus counts down the minutes when Luca’s mother comes knocking. He realizes something’s wrong, but when he goes to talk to Luca, his husband-to-be is nowhere to be found.
Can Gus find Luca in time and manage to convince him to come back and get married?
Super sweet romance between Luca and Gus, with dual POV.
The tension to the story that Luca’s bitch of a mother creates is palpable. Seriously though, I wanted to see her hit by a bus so she could die painfully and slowly.
Um, yeah. Well, anyway, the love between the two was lovely and their passion for each other was unmistakable!
I will always stand by your side. I will always be proud to call myself your husband. I will always have a supporting hand for you and a shoulder for you to cry on. I’ll lend you my ear when you need to talk, nurse you when you’re sick, and be your shield when you need protection. I promise to be your best friend and biggest supporter.
My love doesn’t come with strings attached, Luca. I give it freely and unconditionally and forever.
This is my solemn vow.
