Thorne proposed to Riley. Riley accepted.

Thorne thought that was that. They’d take a nice trip, get married, and spend a week luxuriating in a five-star hotel with occasional excursions to fabulous restaurants.

Riley imagined a traditional wedding with all the trappings. With all their friends and family. At Christmas.

Thorne concedes reluctantly, and a flurry of wedding planning ensues. At the same time, Thorne is wrestling with a recalcitrant client, and Riley and his business partner, Susan, are consumed with renovations and planning for the opening of their bakery. Stress on top of stress makes both Riley and Thorne doubt their relationship, and a major misunderstanding nearly silences the wedding bells.

By the time they reach their happily ever after, they’re both going to deserve all the romance they’ve been dreaming of.

I’d already read Well-Tailored so knew the main drama and events that would unfold for Thorne and Dash in this story. Being told from a different point of view and in more detail gave it an entirely different and more intense perspective. And who can resist more of Thorne and Dash together?

The main drama of this story revolves around their wedding preparations. The guys are busy at work and end up all stressed out. Being so tense about the wedding, they behave rather irrationally and have a major falling out over a certain issue. (No spoilers, but this didn’t quite work for me considering how these guys knew each other so well!) Of course, there are plenty of sizzling hot bedroom scenes, including the one where they make-up. The wedding works out just lovely in the end. Perfect for this perfectly matched pair. Overall a superb series with some very enjoyable writing.

Greg Boudreaux’s narration is spot on as always. I especially love the character distinction he makes between Thorne and Dash’s voices, the smoking hot intimate scenes, and his overall storytelling technique. Great job!

Lily G. Blunt writes contemporary gay romance. She loves to explore the relationship between two men and the intensity of their physical and emotional attraction. Angst often features in her stories as she feels this demonstrates the depth of the men's feelings for each other. Lily is forever writing imaginary scenes and plots in her head, but only a few ever make it to the page. There never seems to be enough hours in the day despite having left the teaching profession to concentrate on her writing! Lily discovered the wonderful world of m/m romance novels five years ago via fan fiction and went on to write stories in her spare time. With the encouragement of her friends and readers she decided to publish some of her work. Lily subsequently self-published several stories via Amazon and later published short stories with Torquere Press, Wayward Ink Publishing, and Pride Publishing.
