Ryan Fuller abandoned a lucrative career to start his own party-planning business, but he keeps afloat by coordinating funerals for the local mortuary. When Ryan bumps into Steven—his best friend’s uncle and the man Ryan has secretly crushed on forever—the attraction explodes into a night of passionate abandon for both men.
Steven is blown away by the care and deep connection he feels for the hot young mortician—until Ryan admits who he really is. Reeling from the recent upheaval in his life, Steven must decide whether to give Ryan a chance. To find love, they must risk it all….
Wow. Sitting here with happy tears running down my cheeks and I feel thankful for Brandon Witt. Thankful for this unforgettable series and especially this last story he just gave us. Deeds and Confetti is a farewell story to Hamburger Mary’s and a truly memorable one for that. That last scene that brought me to tears gives a well deserved ending to an unforgettable journey with the diverse, loving family of Hamburger Mary’s.
This is a fun, light, very emotional love story of a really unlikely couple with some bittersweet undertone and a truly deserved happily ever after. We get an amazing flow here. The writing style seems easy, casual and very addicting. I was totally engrossed in the story and my heart was filled up to the brim with the most amazing feels possible.
Steven had been an enigma in the previous stories and I was looking forward to reading his book. It was absolutely worth the wait. This book is a true gem.
What happens to a couple if one of them had loved the other for the past fifteen years from afar while the other never knew about it? You get the answer here, in this wonderful may december romance.
I love how the writer made it all feel real. All the emotions were palpable and lifelike. The initial lust, the love behind, all the feelings coming to the surface. How the hero worship formed into something real. Steven and Ryan’s journey is one for the true romantics.
The emotions were flowing like a fairy tale until their first date when reality struck its lighting head and we got into an abrupt halt. The getting to really know each other phase was truly heartwarming and I had a big smile on my face during most of their interaction mixed with a few tears and the desire to smack Ryan’s parents on the head to make them see how wonderful their son is.
The final scene is one of the most emotional ones I have ever read, and this book deserves my five emotional stars. Highly recommended.
