Newly engaged Josh Roman and Gabe Wyatt know the road to happily ever after won’t be easy, but the two men are certain their biggest challenges are in the rearview mirror. However, life in Blissville is never what it seems and all signs point to dangerous curves ahead.

Josh and Gabe refuse to take a detour because everything they’ve dreamed of is within reach, not even when professional and personal revelations threaten to wreck their plans. It should be the happiest time in their lives, yet neither man can shake the feeling that something sinister waits around the next corner.

Buckle your seatbelts and hang on for the ride because Josh and Gabe are committed to saying “I do” or die trying.

I Do, or Dye Trying is the fourth book in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries series. These books need to be read in order as the storyline unravels throughout the series. They contain sexually explicit material and are intended for adults 18 and older.

I can’t stop thinking about this series. Told from both Josh and Gabe’s points of view there’s plenty of emotional feels in this and they are so fluffy they make my heart melt.

Though it drags a bit in the middle and everything mystery-wise and relationship-wise gets tied up super easily with Josh and Gabe getting married and Gabe facing his past in more ways than one, it flowed well and I gobbled up the pages and still want more. I love how Gabe and Josh live happily ever after with a big surprise in the end.

There is a mild cliffhanger ending which begins a set up for a story to feature Gabe’s ex, Kyle, and Josh’s best friend, Chaz. Speaking of Chaz, I missed time with him and Meredith. It seemed like there was less focus on the supporting cast in this installment, which was a bummer, because Walker does a great job fleshing out her supporting characters.

Regardless, I enjoyed the story. Aimee Nicole Walker’s writing keeps drawing me in and I’m looking forward to spending more time with Gabe and Josh. On to the holiday novella!

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I'm happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand. I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I'm in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA! My biggest no-no's are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
