Randall Young has one duty as his sister’s “man of honor”: to ensure she has the best wedding ever. That includes an epic bachelorette pub crawl, leading him to Portland’s most popular gay bar… and into Hunter Mitchell’s well-muscled arms. A one-night stand with a sexy soldier is the perfect way to ditch that pesky V-card and get himself in the mood for a weekend of flowers, cake, and nuptials.
Hunter wants to blow off some steam before he stands up as his best friend’s best man. He’s already married to his military career, not looking to settle down. He certainly doesn’t intend for the one guy he met (and, okay, got off with) in Oregon to be his counterpart in the wedding party. Or a virgin. Definitely wasn’t intending that. Luckily, they have the rest of the weekend for Hunter to show Randall what he’s been missing.
The more they’re thrown together by the wedding, the more Randall and Hunter grow together outside the bedroom… which is dangerous because there’s a lot more than 2500 miles standing between them and a happily-ever-after. If they want a future beyond their wedding weekend hookup, both must find the courage to take a chance on love.
This book is a collaboration work of the well-known and established Annabeth Albert and the newcomer Wendy Qualls. I can say the book was very well written and I enjoyed it very much. In fact, I fell in love with Hunter and Randall.
Both guys are total opposites; where Randall is the nerdy, intelligent scientist with a lean stature, Hunter is a burly (but not overly), trained army guy, rough at the edges and known for his one night stands in the past.
Although the story takes place in a short period of time it reveals a lot of the character and it is clear that the attraction between the two guys is mutual.
I really liked that Hunter, although he is an alpha dude, shows his vulnerability and his softer sides towards Randall. Also did I love the erotic scenes with both guys, because they were sexy but also very innocent.
Randall is a charming guy, he is sometimes unsure and a bit intimidated by Hunter and his extrovert behaviour. But at the end we see him coming out of his shell.
For this book I give 5 out of 5 stars. ❤ A really amazing collaboration and I will definitely read the debut work by Wendy Qualls Worth Waiting For where a nerdy, geeky IT guy meets a psychologic teacher.
The sneak peak at the end was awesome. :3
