I have been dying to get my hands on this fourth installment of the Wake Up Married serial by Leta Blake and Alice Griffiths. I don’t think I can love Will or Patrick any more than I already do. They have both grown so much over the serial. Patrick, despite swearing he would never fall in love, is now completely in love with Will and has accepted that fact. But it’s also tearing his heart out to think of having to divorce Will and lose him in the end. Will is in love with Patrick too, but of course he’s not going to tell Patrick because Patrick told him in the beginning that there was no chance of a relationship. So they are both fighting their feelings for each other and getting a little heart broken thinking the other one doesn’t love them in return. Just the right amount of angst, which is just how I like it. They are starting to open up to each other a lot more about their pasts so we get to know both of them a lot better.
Will finally seems to have let Ryan go and he has grown a backbone. He’s not the doormat in this installment that he was when we first met him. He’s standing up to people and he really seems to know what he wants. We see that when he and Patrick are in bed. There is a bit of light kink in this one. Patrick babysits the “slobber monster” and it is adorable what they go through while they have him. If we hadn’t seen the sweet, loving, and soft side of Patrick before then, we did after that.
I can’t say enough good things about this book or the serial in general. The writing is wonderful. The character development is excellent. The story line is gripping. The cliffhanger in this one is will make you say “Nooooo!!!!” and most likely have a small tantrum because you have to wait almost two months to find out what happens. It is the cliffhanger of all cliffhangers. If you haven’t read these books yet, do yourself a big favor and read them! ...more

This is one of those books where I went into it a bit blind because there weren’t any reviews to read before I started, and the blurb is not a good representation of the story. I think the blurb is the downfall of this book. That’s not to say that the book is bad, because I didn’t think it was, although had the blurb been a fair representation of the story, I wouldn’t have been so taken aback. I was expecting two guys, down on their luck, working as male prostitutes, while one falls in love with the other, and apparently something bad happens that threatens their relationship. The word sinister in the blurb did clue me in to the fact that whatever happens would be bad or dangerous, but they are working as prostitutes, so there is a lot that can go with that. Wow! If you are wanting a romance, you aren’t getting it here. I found it to be a bit on the raunchy side actually. If you want to read scenes without much emotion, between two guys working a sometimes-hairy guy over to make a buck, this will do it for you. The two MCs are trying to dig themselves out of their financial hole by working as prostitutes, but another plot has one of them running from their past. That is where the sinister part comes in. Note that this story deals with drug addiction, kidnapping, and murder.
I didn’t have a problem with the writing or the author. The story itself is entertaining, although it wasn’t what I went into it looking to read. If you are looking for something darker, with less romance, not so much a HEA, with evil people doing really bad things, including murder, you’ll probably enjoy this one. I honestly think the blurb should be better written so that the book will be directed toward the audience who will better appreciate it. ...more
