Rating: 5 stars out of 5
Four years ago, Ryan and John decided they’d wait to get married until it came with full legal equality. Now, thanks to the Supreme Court, that historic moment has finally arrived. But two hundred miles separate Ryan’s hectic residency from John’s busy campus job. With a son in college, a daughter choosing her future, and a rambunctious Irish Setter needing attention, planning a wedding isn’t simple.
Of course, even the most perfect ceremony can’t solve all their problems. What does it take to build forever?
If you like me, fell in love with Ryan and John from The Rebuilding Years, then this is the story you’ve been waiting for. Be prepared to laugh until your stomach hurts, cry more than a little, hold your breath through some white knuckle maneuvers and delays until we get to the culmination of their love story….their long awaited marriage.
It all happens in the heartwarming, joyous Building Forever (The Rebuilding Year #2.5) by Kaje Harper. Much like John and Ryan, their inability to get legally married has left their readers frustrated as well as themselves. So here we see the SCOTUS ruling having it’s effect all over again with the result that Ryan and John now finally get to get married.
Oh, if it was only that easy!
They are now living apart, divided by Ryan’s residency and John’s job. Mark is in college and Rory is making her own plans, only their Irish Setter is still at home causing problems. Getting everything into place for a wedding turns into an almost insurmountable feat, with obstacles piling up by the minute. But (with Harper’s deft comedic touch and easily flowing plot) the narrative’s lively pace makes you howl and cry as the men scramble forward with love towards the one goal they’ve wanted…rings and HEA.
Harper brings in many of the secondary characters for the wedding, Tory and Mark their children, even the Irish Setter and of course the college as a setting. All the elements are right, the dialog is perfect, and I just loved the ceremony. Really, I couldn’t have asked for more. For this couple or for us as readers. It’s simply everything I wanted and didn’t know to ask for.
No, this is not a stand alone story. Read all the others, starting with The Rebuilding Years and end here with Building Forever. Better yet, read all three at once! I highly recommend them all.
Cover by Karrie Jax. I love the cover. It works for both men and setting.
