Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
After a drunken night of hot sex in Vegas, strangers Will Patterson and Dr. Patrick McCloud wake up married. A quickie divorce is the most obvious way out—unless you’re the heir of a staunchly Catholic mafia boss with a draconian position on the sanctity of marriage.
Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Will and Patrick don’t like it, or each other, but they have to make the best of it until they can find another way out of their marriage. To ensure the trust fund Will’s charitable foundation relies on isn’t revoked by his mobster grandfather, he and Patrick travel to Will’s hometown of Healing, South Dakota, posing as a newlywed couple in the throes of true love at first sight.
Complicating their scheme are Will’s unresolved feelings for his all-too-recent ex-boyfriend Ryan, and Patrick’s desire to get back to the only thing that really matters to him in life: neurosurgery. Will they fool everyone? Or will the mafia get wind that their marriage is a fake? Throw their simmering attraction into the mix and all bets are off!
We all know I like Leta Blake’s work a lot, so anything she releases I’m going to want… a lot. I thought Will & Patrick Wake Up Married (Wake Up Married, Episode 1) was a cool idea for a romantic comedy with M/M romance. It started off really good. Will is disorientated and naked in bed with a man who isn’t Ryan his boyfriend, yet Ryan broke up with him the night before. We’ve all been there done that with alcohol involved. Typical break up behavior ensued. Well this time Will went overboard and got himself married Vegas style. Patrick was hilarious. I liked his sarcasm and snark. He generally didn’t panic as much as Will.
This started out really well for me, and then the fire kind of died out. I’m think all the things surrounding the marriage took away from Patrick and Will. We saw glimpse of Patrick trying to be there for Will despite the situation at hand.
I can’t wait to see what happens next for these two. Maybe they will actually end up liking each other. Only time will tell.
Cover Art by Dar Albert @ Wicked Smart Designs. I liked the design, very eye catching for the readers. Its definitely reminds me of a romantic comedy. I was intrigued because of the cover.
