Review: Will & Patrick Wake Up Married (Wake Up Married #1) by Leta Blake and Alice Griffiths

Join the fun in this vibrant first installment of the new romantic comedy serial by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths!

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!

Episode 1 of 6 in the Wake Up Married serial.

YES! I've been DNF'ing books left and right, and what I have been finishing has been 3 stars. Will & Patrick brought be out of my funk and I'm probably going to be reading these back to back.

Will & Patrick Wake Up Married is funny and ridiculously entertaining. But it's also more than that.

In this first installment we're introduced to the characters and the situation they've found themselves in. When they wake up Will doesn't remember much from their night together and neither did Patrick, until they noticed the wedding bands on their hands.

Things start to come back in pieces. Will remembers the phone call from his jerkface boyfriend. He remembers getting drunk and meeting Patrick. Patrick remembers meeting Will in a bar. Taking him to his room and plowing him for hours. They remember how hot they were together and how compatible they felt.

Too bad sober reality didn't meet their drunken standards. They don't get along at all. Divorce only makes sense right? Not when your from a mob family and if you get a divorce you lose everything. Until they can figure things out, they have to stay together. Fake it 'til you make it.

While the two guys didn't get along at all and there wasn't any sexy times between them (other than glimpses from their drunken night together), I really loved them. There's a lot of depth to each of them. The authors created two very different characters that I fell in love with.

I feel for Will. The poor guy can't catch a break. I just want to hold him. He needs hugs. Lots of hugs and love. He's so insecure and that last thing he needs is another mess up. Actually, the last thing he needs is Patrick constantly reminding him of his mess ups.

Patrick is a jerk. Class A. But he's so darn likable! It's annoying, really. I shouldn't love him like I do. But he recognizes his jerkishness. He also recognizes that his frankness probably has an underlying reason. I'm glad he sees that he can be outright rude sometimes, now I'm curious to know what he does about it.

Will & Patrick are nothing short of awesome together. And they're not even really together yet! I'm excited to read more. Which I will be doing right about... now.
