A MelanieM Review: Nine Small Sips (A Tales Of Bryant Wedding) by V.L. Locey

Rating: 5 stars out of 5

Life for Isamu Taylor is now a Cinderella story that includes a Manhattan loft, a new position in the hottest LGBT film production company in New York City, and an upcoming wedding in Bryant Park to his very own handsome prince.

He’s come a long way from that struggling film student with ratty sneakers and shaggy hair. Isamu is now living an urbanite’s fairy tale with that happily ever after just around a bustling city street corner.

But as all wedding planners know, even the best laid plans seem to go awry, and Isamu and Brian’s wedding is no exception. But love – both old and new – is in the air, so nothing can go too badly, right?

Nine Small Sips (A Tales Of Bryant Wedding) by V.L. Locey is such a wonderful joy of a story to read.  The wedding story followup to Tales of Bryant this is exactly the story we not only want to read but need to read.  It has depth where we (and the characters)need it too, banter and straight up giggles in all the right and some of the very hysterically wrong places! And two of the most beloved and quite delightful “worried chins” I’ve every read about!

Those chins would belong to Isamu’s mother and very old grandmother just in from Japan with her ancient Saki set.  Why say anything when you have the most expressive chins to do it for you?  Ok, my face is beginning to hurt again.

Add to that an over the top wedding planner with a lorgnette, an ever tightening schedule, grooms fraying over the details, while still managing sex and to reaffirm their deep love for each other.  Yes, it’s a grand romp, high romance, and family time in Manhattan all rolled into a story to remember.

And they even gave a new couple a launching pad into the  next story which I cannot wait to read.

How Im loving this couple and new series!  It’s a shiny new light in contemporary romance, not too angsty, but filled with warmth, love, and HEA.  Perfect!

And yes, I’m definitely recommending it

Cover Design: Sloan J Designs. Love this cover with the simple and elegant but all important saki set on it.

Nine Small Sips (A Tales Of Bryant Wedding)

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
