Overview

Love comes along when you least expect it. That’s what Duncan Taylor’s sister, Scout, tells him. Scout has everything Duncan wants—a happy life with a wonderful husband. Now that Seattle has made gay marriage legal, Duncan knows he can have the same thing. But when he proposes to his boyfriend Tucker, he doesn’t get the answer he hoped for. Tucker’s refusal is another misstep in a long line of failed romances. Despairing, Duncan thinks of all the loving unions in his life—and how every one of them is straight. Maybe he could be happy, if not sexually compatible, with a woman. When zany, gay-man-loving Marilyn Samples waltzes into his life, he thinks he may have found his answer.

Determined to settle, Duncan forgets his sister’s wisdom about love and begins planning a wedding with Marilyn. But life throws Duncan a curveball. When he meets wedding planner Peter Dalrymple, unexpected sparks ignite. Neither man knows how long he can resist his powerful attraction to the other. For sure, there’s a wedding in the future. But whose?

    This is one of those books where it’s hard for me to write up a review for. Not because I didn’t enjoy the book, but more so for the fact that to me this book was just more so-so.
    I haven’t read anything by the author in the past, so it might just be that I wasn’t able to connect with the way that the author writes their stories, but with this book at times it felt like the story just seemed to be stretched out past the point where I was still enjoying it.
    I did enjoy the whole premise of this book though! I thought that the author writing the story using this plotline was a very smart move on their part. I haven’t actually read another book like this before, so it was really great to read something new. The characters were really well written as well. They were described to an amazing extent; you were not left wondering anything about them in the slightest.
    I will read from this author in the future just because I do believe in giving authors a second chance when it comes to reading their stories. I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys a story that isn’t about the sex or romance, but is about friendship.

    Review posted on Books on Silver Wings blog. 

    Duncan gets publicly embarrassed when he proposed to his boyfriend but got rejected and broke up. He really wants a happy
    marriage like the rest of his family who had already found soul mates, so he posts an ad on Craigslist to find a straight woman to
    marry. Marilyn answers his ad and they hit it off as great best friends. They start to plan their wedding but they each can't help an
    attraction to other people. Tragedy strikes and maybe marriage between a gay man and a straight woman isn't such a good idea
    anymore. 

    Duncan's a really sweet guy that teaches 4th grade and lives on a houseboat. Marilyn is a tough girl that know what she likes, goes to
    ogle hot men at gay bars, and is an animal lover. They are very quirky characters with developed back stories. Their jokes and funny
    commentary brings another highlight into the story. 

    Despite the jokes and funny commentaries on the surface, the story goes deeper and discusses love and the fundamentals of
    marriage. Marilyn and Duncan each have their doubts on whether if they should get married. They will never have sex and so they can
    never give each other the "whole package" that comes with marriage. They love each other but not in a romantic way, so is that enough
    reason to get married?

    This is a very interesting and unusually start on a romantic relationship. As I was reading, I was afraid Duncan would really marry
    Marilyn. They get along so well and have so many inside jokes about hot men, it isn't unbelievable for them to give up on finding their
    own soul mates and marry each other instead. Thank goodness this is m/m romance and Duncan's potential boyfriend appears
    about a quarter of the way into the story. As for their romance, it's slightly disappointing because it feels like another love at first sight
    and their development is not as developed as I would have liked. The author is juggling three relationships in this story: Duncan and
    Marilyn's friendship, Duncan and Peter's romance, and Marilyn and Ben's romance. Duncan and Marilyn's friendship is the most
    prioritized and it's a bond that can weathered through and be strengthen by various challenges in the story. 

    This is a thoughtful story about two funny people in a contemporary setting dealing with gay marriage and love. It's a delicate balance
    between Duncan and Marilyn's friendship and their individual love relationships. The spotlight isn't fully on Duncan and Peter's
    relationship, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Everybody gets a happy ending and a wedding does happen! This is not the usual m/m 
    romance novel and not everyone will like it but it definitely have its strong points.

    I read the first book in this series. I couldn't wait to read this one. I was so thrilled to find Marilyn was one of the main characters in this book. Duncan has give up on finding a gay man to marry. He finds Marilyn and together they develop a fast friendship. Both are looking for love even if they don't realize at first. I love this author and look forward to reading more of his books.
