Fit To Be Married

“Guys like you aren’t fit to be married.”

Maybe it was just a passing comment from his brother-in-law, but for Thomas the comment cut to the core. It also lit a spark that would soon turn into a flame of action. Thomas sets out to play his part in ensuring marriage equality becomes the law of the land for everyone, but he still longs for a special man at his side.

Start your review of Fit To Be Married
This was my third arc book from Declan Rhodes and I like his writing style.

But this one, in my opinion, wasn't that good as the other two.
I liked Thomas and Landon and I liked how their relationship developed. But I didn't like how Landon would run away without explanation and how after that Thomas was a bit like 'yeah of course you can come back without explanation and of course I'm still in love with you.' Like how on earth would you be so easy taking him back? Ask more and deeper questions,

I chose this book as it is different to my usual Paranormal Romance type reading. It is the story of two men, Thomas Boyer, openly gay who wants nothing more to get married one day and Landon Garrison who is out but quietly and doesn't. Their story is set against a background of the struggle for LGBTQ people to have the right to marry in Wisconsin.
There is a lot to take in during the course of the book and we eventually discover why Landon is so resistant to getting married. The two halves work

I love the time this took place. I remember thinking why was it taking so long to legalize gay marriage. It shouldn't take that long to give equal rights in this country. Any country for that matter. I did think Thomas was too quick to accept Landon back. Especially that last time. Landon didn't seem like he learned from their first break up. He got it right about him being hard headed but not with Thomas being so. It was a good read but not one of my favorites. I received a complimentary copy o ...more

This was a sweet story with lots of ups and downs it was a little slow in parts but if you stash with it the story ends well.

The characters were great and loving although there were a lot of flaw, such as:

1) The fact that Landon went straight from I never want to get married to 'will you marry me? there was no in between, no signs that he was considering it.

2)Thomas didn't have a back bone. Landon up a left him twice and Thomas took him back twice without even a 'please take me back'. Landon should have begged for Thomas back but he literally did barley anything to get him back.

However, the storyline was great, i lov

Good story but a bit frustrating. A rollercoaster ride of emotions. Thomas was determined to find a man to love and get married to. When he met Landon he
thought maybe he was the one, but Landon was not the marrying kind.
After 3 dates Landon storms out of the apartment breaking it off with Thomas devastating Thomas. Thomas was a part of the marriage equality movement and was a spokesman for the gay rights organization which held the gala where they first met. Several months later they meet again

From the mouths of babes (or it this case an insensitive brother-in-law)
Thomas is the last of his siblings left unmarried and an offhand remark from his brother-in-law has Thomas making decisions to become “fit to be married”. One of the first things he does is join a group working to get gay marriage legalized. At an event, he meets Landon and the chemistry is awesome unfortunately Landon does not want to come out. Landon freaks and breaks up with Thomas only to realize later the mountain was a

This was an interesting story... I felt like there were spots that were missing in this storyline though.. I didn;t realize a lot of things until they happened and someone was upset. However I enjoyed the time line.. and how it all came together.. i loved the litle old couple.. they were so sweet..overall it was a good story just certain spots that got confusing for me . i am so glad i got to review it

I loved the blurb for this book but didn't like the characters at all. One wanted to get married after a few days and the other ran off. Can't fault the running off but then it kept happening. Also, it was so sweet I expected syrup to drip from my kindle at any moment.
