Hi there! I’m so excited to share a review for a new book in the Will and Patrick series by Leta Blake and Alice Griffiths. Leta Blake knew her readers wanted more of this quirky pair, Will and Patrick, two strangers who married while drunk in Vegas and have built a life together–but never had and private time to themselves. So, Ms. Blake wrote them an ENDLESS HONEYMOON, and it’s as fun as the previous six episodes in the Wake Up Married series. Speaking of, you’ll need to read the previous episodes, (WAKE UP MARRIED, MEET THE FAMILY, DO THE HOLIDAYS, FIGHT THEIR FEELINGS, MEET THE MOB and HAPPY ENDING) first, for this one to be fully understood. However, it’s certainly worth your time; I’ve enjoyed them all!
Scroll down to catch my review and enter to win a boxed set of episodes 1-6 in the Wake Up Married series.
About the book:
Genius brain surgeon Patrick McCloud never thought he’d fall in love, let alone get married. He and Will Patterson are two years overdue for their honeymoon, and although romance doesn’t come naturally to Patrick, he’s determined to make it perfect.
Will works himself to the bone helping others and dealing with his family, who bring the drama nonstop. A tropical getaway without the usual shenanigans is just what the doctor ordered. But can Will’s family leave them in peace? Knowing the Patterson-Molinaro clan, it’s not likely…
Will and Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon by Leta Blake continues the soapy, sexy fun of the original six part Wake Up Married serial. In Healing, South Dakota, marriage is never boring!
This is the “final” episode in the Will and Patrick serial, and is best enjoyed when read in order.
A quick recap of the storyline: Will Patterson is the heir to the Molinaro crime family fortune, and he uses it to fund Good Works, an organization that builds shelters and hospitals for the indigent. He’s from Healing, South Dakota and was at a Vegas medical conference to recruit surgeons to work in his state-of-the art hospital in Healing when he had a relapse of alcoholism, and met Dr. Patrick McCloud. Patrick, a fussy man on the Autism spectrum, didn’t know the sexy stranger at the bar was either an alcoholic or a diabetic–a deadly combination–but he knew that man was one he might not let get away. In fact, while totally enjoying each other’s company and few more drinks, they got married.
This was a big, inconvenient problem because the Molinaro money came with one stipulation: the trust owner could never divorce once married. Patrick wasn’t especially moved by Will’s predicament, but his sudden joblessness, and Will’s ability to install him as the head of neurosurgery went a long way to bringing Patrick to Healing, where he was soon more than captivated by his unexpected husband. This, despite Will’s zany family and jealous and abusive ex-lover.
Two years have passed since Will and Patrick got married, and these men have been busy. That said, they have never had a honeymoon–they jetted back to Healing straightaway following their nuptials to see if there might have been some legal redress to annul their marriage. Then they got caught up in life. This is an oversight Patrick is dedicated to correcting; he’s planned a tech-free, worry-free, Will’s-family-free ten-day getaway. If only they can keep it that way… And, if you’ve read any of the W+P stories, you know that drama is always around the next corner.
I was so happy to fall back into Will and Patrick’s world. The drama of Will’s selfish mother and manipulative father. The Hurting Times online gossip rag that Patrick regularly stokes. The beauty of their passion. Even their everyday fusses, dealing with Will’s diabetes. Patrick is such a lovable curmudgeon, and he loves Will with his entire being, even managing difficult situations on Will’s behalf–like his abusive ex, who does crop up again here. Their time on the honeymoon wasn’t even close to drama–free, but it was a time for these two to reconnect, and concentrate on all the parts of their lovestory they may have set aside in the day-to-day busy-ness. I prefaced this review with “final” because it does end in a way that could be the end…but I wonder if there will be a “BECOME PARENTS” book in the works… (Or, maybe that’s just my own wishful thinking!!) Either way, I do recommend these yummy books. The first three are rather tame on the sexytimes, but the next four are scorchers. All are chock full of feels, and brought me to tears at more than one occasion.
