Ever since he first set foot in Harrisburg, Tennant’s life has been a rollercoaster. Ups and downs too numerous to mention, hard knocks and championship rings. Through all of those monumental moments, one thing has been a constant for him, Jared Madsen. Now that their wedding day is drawing nearer, Ten is seriously considering eloping. He would, if not for his mother, his father, his brothers, the wedding planner, the guests, the cake, the press, and the team. Oh, and then there’s his best friend, who is vying for the job of ringmaster of the wedding circus. Would sneaking off during the night with Jared and skipping to the honeymoon part of the festivities really be all that bad?

When Jared proposed to Ten, he imagined a quiet wedding, on a beach somewhere, with family, and maybe the team. But life gets complicated with Ten’s warring brothers, a Russian goalie with a love of sequins, and a bachelor party organized by Adler. When Trent sends them a wedding planner, every spare hour is filled with choosing invitations, cake tasting, and finding a rose in the perfect shade of green. Add in Layton organizing a press conference, and suddenly their private wedding is destined to become a media sensation. Is it wrong to think seriously about kidnapping Ten and spiriting him away to a small deserted island?

Adler organizing the bachelor party, Trent supplying the wedding planner, and Stan writing a speech. What can possibly go wrong?

Tennant Rowe and Jared Madsen have a special place in my heart and for anyone else who has loved them like I have, this novella will make you very, very happy. It’s the perfect end of an era.

Two men who are busy with sports and life aren’t supposed to spend their time planning a wedding. Besides, it’s what Trent does best. But Trent goes a little overboard and pretty soon picking out napkin edging becomes too much for our boys.

As a last hurrah to the series, we get to see the entire Rowe family involved in wedding planning and pre-wedding interviews. The team shows up for bachelor party shenanigans and it’s great to see them all come together to support Ten and Mads, but also to get a glimpse into their craziness as well.

Things fall apart last minute, friends steal the grooms and force them to wear neon, someone gets engaged and there’s a silver hockey puck cake. But it wouldn’t be a Ten and Mads story if there wasn’t romance, a new idea for the future, and strawberries in bed.

As much as I hate to say goodbye to this couple, without an end, this book wouldn’t exist. It’s well worth the read, as is the entire series.

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
