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.
I love “opposites attract” story lines and these two characters couldn’t be more different. A big, dominant Alpha male and a nerdy little submissive virgin…pushed so many of my “OH HELL YES” buttons. And I’m happy to say this story didn’t disappoint. Forever an Annabeth Albert fan I wasn’t overly concerned about the writing but I have to compliment “new to me” author Wendy Qualls, as well. Obviously, a great writing team because this book was really good and well written.
Science cutie Randall Young is done with being a virgin. He’s dedicated the majority of his life so far to his education and now wants to have a little fun.
In town for his best friend’s wedding Hunter Mitchell doesn’t get a lot of down time being active military. Away from where he’s stationed Hunter takes this break to let loose and relax
Both men looking for a hookup find each other and do not realize they are connected in more ways than they realize. Thrown together to help with the wedding preparations Randall and Hunter do not want to fight their obvious attraction to each other.
But as these things tend to go what starts as light fun quickly escalates into an emotional entanglement.
I liked that this story stayed on the light, cute side and didn’t venture too far into dramatic angst. The way the authors planned this out really fit perfectly. I wish this was longer. I want to see these two domestic and working out their lives together but I’m happy with what I got to read.
Very cute story, definitely recommend.
