Randall Young has one duty as his sister’s “man of honor”: to ensure she has the best wedding ever. That includes an epic bachelorette pub crawl, leading him to Portland’s most popular gay bar… and into Hunter Mitchell’s well-muscled arms. A one-night stand with a sexy soldier is the perfect way to ditch that pesky V-card and get himself in the mood for a weekend of flowers, cake, and nuptials.

Hunter wants to blow off some steam before he stands up as his best friend’s best man. He’s already married to his military career, not looking to settle down. He certainly doesn’t intend for the one guy he met (and, okay, got off with) in Oregon to be his counterpart in the wedding party. Or a virgin. Definitely wasn’t intending that. Luckily, they have the rest of the weekend for Hunter to show Randall what he’s been missing.

The more they’re thrown together by the wedding, the more Randall and Hunter grow together outside the bedroom… which is dangerous because there’s a lot more than 2500 miles standing between them and a happily-ever-after. If they want a future beyond their wedding weekend hookup, both must find the courage to take a chance on love.

Save the Date is short, sweet and beautifully written story of Randall and Hunter. The book is a short story filled with every ingredient needed to make it a gooey warm read.

I loved the book a lot. The characters are well developed and their journey has been mapped out really well even though this is a short story. The connection between Hunter and Randall has been explored well and the way they fell in love has been portrayed in an exceptional manner. I loved the way the authors explored their chemistry too. It was scorching hot and screen melting. Loads of dirty talks and hot and sexy times. The connection that Hunter and Randall had is very believable and we find ourselves rooting for them right from the first page. There is not much angst and also the ending is an HFN which is believable. I simply loved everything about this book and the only problem I had was that I wanted more of Hunter and Randall.

This book is a perfect short read and you will leave the book with a smile. The bonus is that it is completely free. Highly Recommended.
