Save the Date by Annabeth Albert and Wendy Qualls 3 Stars!
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 is a nice romance with lots to like.
The opposites attract is always hot and I love a nerdy take charge hero. Sadly, we see Randall more clearly than we do Hunter. Hunter adores Randall and Hunter changes the most in the course of the story wanting more. I would have liked to seeing Randall adoring Hunter more.
The cast of characters and destination wedding theme is fun and the epilogue is satisfying.
