    3.5 Stars!Still having a lot of fun with Will and Patrick. Sometimes this is just the kind of book you need in your life. You can see glimpses of things changing between Will and Patrick. And I am definitely looking forward to the romance developing. In the meantime, I am enjoying Patrick's verbal diarrhea and Will's utter awkwardness! I will say, I hope Ryan doesn't become a problem for me.

    I enjoyed this much more than I did the last episode. This time around we meet Will's family and his ex-boyfriend. I can't really say that I like Will's mom, Kimberly all that much. She hated Patrick on the spot and the feeling was mutual. He didn't hold back his sharp tongue and let her have it. And I enjoyed it. LOL I am still unsure about the Uncle. I don't know if I like him or not. He's a bit of a mystery at the moment. I know he's as protective of Will as Will's mom is, but he doesn't come on as strong so he didn't really annoy me as bad as Will's mom did. I can't stand the woman. I found myself loving Patrick even more in this episode. I find it hilarious that Patrick is most of the time worried about if he's going to be able to eat. The man can put some food away. But the way he also makes sure Will is eating too so his sugar levels stay good really makes me love the man more. Swoon! LOL Then there is the ex, Ryan. Man this guy is such a douche. Just the way he speaks to Will gives you a clear understanding how unhealthy that relationship was. And what's sad is that Will still believes the crap that is being spewed out of this assholes mouth. Then what's worse is that Will is still holding a torch for this abusive bastard. If you can't tell from my nice words about Ryan I'll go and ahead and state that I hated this fucker. It's kind of annoying only getting pieces of the story. It's like a tease. I hate being teased. But I'm hooked so I guess I'll continue to suffer.

    4 stars! I really enjoyed this second installment, finding out more about Will and Patrick has been great! And I can feel them developping into one of my favorite m/m couples more and more. They are really special, not like most of the characters you encouter in m/m literature. They aren't easy, they are sometimes difficult to understand, you want them to act different from what they do most of the time, but you still fall in love with them! Apart from the characters, the storyline is equally special and interesting!. I can't wait to find out more about Patrick's past and his secrets and I am looking forward to meet Will's family. I guess this series will keep getting better and better! Highly recommended!

    Full review originally posted at Sinfully... Addicted to All Male Romance.This episode picks up right where the first left off (you definitely can’t read these as standalones); time to meet Will’s mom! Remember how I mentioned in my review of Episode #1 how much I liked Patrick and his snark? I now love Patrick, his snark and the fierce protectiveness he is feeling towards Will.The meeting with Will’s mother Kimberly, and his Uncle Kevin goes about as well as anything has gone for these two so far. Will’s mother, who will never be confused for Snow White, doesn’t contain her disdain of Patrick and her suspicion of his tricking Will into marriage so he can get his hands on some money, which is fine since Patrick isn’t going to play nice with her either. I get the protective mother instinct, but Kimberly is a piece of work. Although we don’t meet Will’s father Tony in person, he is getting more aggressive in making his presence known.There are also some more run-ins with Will’s ex, Ryan. Ryan is a heinous person. He seemingly has charmed most of the town, including Will’s mother, but he is quite abusive towards Will. Even his new man Hartley sees it and has compassion for Will. There is a flash of realization in Will that Patrick has been better to him in this short time than Ryan has in years, but it really hasn’t sunk in yet and he is still amazingly trying to figure out how to get Ryan back. I am looking forward to the moment when Will realizes how blind he has been to how horrible Ryan is.We learn a little more about both Patrick and Will’s childhoods and we get a real feel for how hard Will struggles with his addiction. Patrick has overcome a lot to get where he is and we all know how much he cares under that brash exterior. I fell so much harder in love with Patrick for the way he takes care of Will in this episode from worrying about his health to giving him pep talks about his struggle to stay sober.As the men go about keeping up appearances and Patrick starts working at Healing’s new neurology unit, they settle into a bit of a routine. Patrick’s whole life has been upended and rearranged, but he doesn’t seem to mind too much, especially once he is back working, and his appreciation of Will keeps growing. As much as Will is trying to fight his attraction towards Patrick to focus on ending the marriage while keeping his foundation money and of course, getting Ryan back, it’s not as easy as he’d hoped. Although there haven’t been more than a few kisses, the sexual tension is ratcheting up. I don’t think Will is going to be able to resist Patrick’s appeal much longer… at least I hope not!This second episode continues with the humor, snark and tension of the first, but also brought out the emotion as the two men start to really get to know each other. I like the way their relationship is growing as they each learn the others’ habits and quirks. I’m enjoying how Patrick is unwittingly entrenching himself in the town of Healing even as he keeps talking about looking forward to the time when the marriage is ended. Bring on the Holidays! What could possibly go wrong?

    As Will & Patrick wait impatiently to have their marriage dissolved, they find it hard to keep feelings from forming as they try to keep up appearances. Bit by bit, things are revealed and you can see their resistance slowly being worn away. A nice little seque as they get settled, as familiarity breeds like, and the UST continues to build. These guys need to get their heads out of their asses pronto!

    This is the one with least action and you will need patience, but oh so good!At least as good as #1. Absolutely brilliant UST. Patrick is a lot nicer than he lets on. But he's simply unable to deal with feelings of any kind. He's got ONE pair of friends (and I do wonder how he has managed that many!) The man definitely has got emotional issues.(More about that in episode 4!) But he really likes Will. So much. And he won't admit it to himself.Will reciprocates the feeling, even if he tries doggedly to convince himself he's still in love with Ryan. I have no idea why. I think I really truly hate Ryan. I have no idea why he is humiliating Will every time they meet. He is such a condescending b******! What is his deal? Apart from being a horrible prick?This is turning into the most wonderful series. Love the humour and the feels, and I adore Will and Patrick - they are amazing characters!On to #3! :D

    4 starsYes, this series is growing on me! I enjoyed this more than book 1. I particularly enjoyed watching Patrick as the layers are slowly, slowly peeled off and we learn he's not quite the asshole he likes to pretend to be. I love his protectiveness of Will and how he's always watching out for him in every way. On the other hand, we see a little more of Will's ex (Ryan) here and he is a complete jerk. In an almost OTT way. I'm also getting more used to the present tense, and it didn't bother me the way it did in book 1.

    The second episode of this serial is just as delightful as the first. The authors have created a really fun world for Will and Patrick -- I love the town of Healing and its residents. Poor Patrick has gone through the looking glass! Will's family is quite a handful, to say the least. The UST between Will and Patrick continues to build, and I can't wait for it to boil over into sexcapades and reluctant feels. (Full disclosure: I edited this story. But I genuinely love it!)

    So much (family) drama…And I seriously cannot believe Will still wants to get back with his incredibly douchey ex, who treats him like crap (and all Will does is roll over and take it).

    Great second episode in the Will & Patrick saga! Some scattered thoughts -- In Will & Patrick Wake Up Married, Will was the focus; in this episode, Patrick is in the spotlight and I gotta say he is heroically well-adjusted given his childhood issues. Getting to know Patrick is a delicious slow burn. We finally meet Ryan and yes .... he is a straight-up prick and should be cranially adjusted with a shovel. I love how everyone in town says the word doctor like it's a profanity and Patrick continually feels the need to stress that he's a NEUROSURGEON, damn it, he makes a lot of money, and no, he's not after Will for his money. Great series and I can't wait to read them all.

    Getting better and better.I jumped right into Will & Patrick Meet the Family right after the first installment, and I read it straight through. I definitely think things are going in the right direction! I think the chemistry and affection is really starting to ramp up, and I'm digging the banter whereas before I was a little unsure if Patrick was a dick or not (now I think he's a dick, but sort of a good dick!). And the sexual tension! Whew! I like that these authors are keeping me on my toes and letting the chemistry simmer and grow stronger. I can't wait to jump right into the third installment.

    Okay..This one had no smexy, not a bit of steam.the love saga is sweet. I love this couple. I love the concept. What I did not care for is the present tense writing. And the fact that it is a serial/saga. Sigh....

    This series is definitely picking up. In 2nd book, Patrick have to meet Will's dysfunctional family and try to settle down in the Podunk town. Patrick is as infuriating as ever and I love him. Will one the other hand is such a poor thing, in fact he is a total doormat. Whenever his beloved ex, Ryan showed up on page, I just turned murderous. If this is really a mafia story, I would want someone to just settle him. What the fuck is wrong with the guy? I can't imagine Will spent so many years with that jerk of the century. In fact, jerk is a too tame a word to describe that son of a bitch.Anyway, despite all my hatred for the ex, he is absolutely a great fodder for this series. I just can't wait for Will to realize that Patrick is much more awesome that his ex. As for Will and Patrick's relationship progression, things are moving slow. But they are getting to know each other better and some sexual tension is definitely present.

    All attempts to make Patrick seem like a good guy in comparison with Ryan have failed because the author seems to have underestimated my ability to hate more than one character at the same time.

    This is the second installment in a serial that needs to be read in order.Will and Patrick have been back to Will's hometown of Healing, South Dakota for a couple days, and Will has more 'splainin' to do. He's enlisted the help of his grandmother, Eleanora, to help get them out of this marriage, and had his first confrontation with his new ex, Ryan, and neither was pretty--but now he needs to introduce Patrick to his mother. Oy vay!Nobody in town likes Patrick, and that's not just because his quicky marriage to a very wealthy, and emotionally vulnerable, Will is highly suspicious. No, Patrick is also a jackass. He has zero social graces and is often deliberately obnoxious and obtuse. I really am struggling to like him, at this point. I get that he's a great doctor, but I do not have to like him--at all--because of it.There are some hints at why Patrick is such a prickly character, but they haven't (yet) excused his callousness.Patrick relishes this bubble of insufferability he creates around himself. His only redeeming quality, for me, is that he's good to Will, in a way. Will has a lot of insecurity, and a deeply ingrained sense of worthlessness and failure. It's been fostered by many different characters slighting him over the years, and Patrick doesn't accept any of that BS. He finds Will attractive, and says so. He builds him up, and that's really great considering what a shit Ryan is. I think if they were standing in front of me, I'd punch Ryan in the junk and slap Patrick, twice. (Ryan is a horror of a man, to me, and I'm well glad that Will is rid of him. Patrick is a whole lotta "tough love" sans the "love" bit, and I can *almost* see that he's going to be a great partner to Will...eventually.)Will is warming up to his partnership with Patrick, and feeling more attracted than overwhelmed. He's still soft on Ryan, which is a shame really because that dude is as emotionally abusive as they come. Though I'm starting to see Will turn the page on his love for Ryan and I HOPE HOPE HOPE that there's some romance coming for him and Patrick. SOON! Right now we have a developing sexual tension and it's getting serious, but there are no sexytimes. Memories of past sexytimes. Innuendo and a couple kisses, too, but that's not enough to balance out the snarky banter, for me. I want to see Will and Patrick fall in love. God! I hope that isn't the title of the last installment in this series.Expect a douchey ex, a malevolent mafia tail, a lot of people hating Patrick and Will getting his heart stomped on. Oh, and meals. Lots and lots of eating. Mangia!

    This book was such a awesome addition to this series! This is not a stand alone so you need to read the first book in the series before you read this one. So in this book Patrick gets to meet Will's family and let me say Will's mom gives a new meaning to mother-in-law from hell. Patrick is his usually snarky self with everyone which I loved! There is just something about his character that draws me in and has me laughing so hard at the things he says. Then there was poor Will I just want him to honestly get over Ryan and realize what a jerk he is. The sexual tension between these two was off the charts in this book. So many times I just wanted to yell through the book and tell them to just get it on already because you know they are going to be so hot together when they do. I really do not want to say much more because this book you have really got to read for yourself because it was just so good! I will say these two authors have drawn me into this story of Patrick and Will so much that I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book in this series to see more of these two characters together and what will happen next. All together I really loved this book!I would definitely recommend this book! I received this book free in exchange for an honest review from Inked Rainbow Reads.

    Episode 2 picks up right where Episode 1 ended. Will and Patrick have been summoned to go meet Will's mom. She's heard about their quickie marriage through the small town grapevine. Not a whole lot happens in this installment. We meet more of the people in Will's life.... his mom Kimberly, uncle Kevin, Ryan (the ex-boyfriend), Andy (the owner of the diner), Jenny (townie who befriends Patrick at the coffee shop), Owen (Will's friend and AA sponsor), and Don the chief of staff at the hospital. Predictably Patrick is quite rude to all of them. Some of it deserved; some not.I still don't find Patrick to be a terribly likable guy, but he does open up about his past a little bit and it sounds like he had a rough childhood.I plan to read the next episode since it was just released. It sounds like the remaining episodes won't be out until after the holidays. I received an ARC of this book from the author via IndiGo Marketing & Design in exchange for an honest review.

    I will review the entire series because it must be taken as a whole. I loved the main characters. They were snarly and prickly and sweet fun. How could you not like a story that has these lines in it: Luckily, Patrick isn't impressed by pretty women. Being gay is sometimes a tactical advantage.andMeeting the in-laws is something Patrick never thought he'd have to do. He'd rather eat yak brains or visit Russia in winter or set himself on fire. Okay maybe not set himself on fire. But he'd be down with Russian winters or yak brains for sure if it got him out of this.The supporting cast is just as interesting and aggravating. I loved them. My only regret is that I started this series before the last one was published.

    Will and Patrick Meet the FamilyM/M5 starsI was given this book by Inked Rainbow Reads for an honest review. Book 2 in the Vegas Marriage of Will and Patrick. This book was just as good as book 1. Patrick gets to meet Will's family. And of course Patrick can't hold his tongue. Oh my I just love his snarky attitude. And the things he does voice are hilarious. Once again I enjoyed this book very much. Definitely need to read these books in order. Looking forward to reading more about Will and Patrick.

    I continue to swallow this serial whole and cannot wait for the next one. It was lovely to see Patrick come to his own in the hospital and really show his skills and enthusiasm. He continues to devour food in a most sexy way.We got to more of Ryan, and man! His relationship with Will was a scary thing. His cruelty towards his ex was hurtful and unnecessary. I wish Will could see what damage Ryan is doing to him.Will is hiding Patrick. They need to get out more. But they also need to be making more smexy times. And I think the piano will be important.So great.

    4.5 starsEpisode two! This serial is getting so good!In this episode Patrick gets busy at the local hospital, meets Will’s mobster mom and nonna, finds friendship in Jenny and meets Will’s infamous ex Ryan. Will tries to deal with his conflicting feelings: his love/hate relationship with Ryan and the undeniable attraction to Patrick. I’m going to have to fangirl over Patrick for a bit:I love Patrick McCloud so, so much! I love how unapologetic he is. His honesty is downright offensive at times, but he dares to say what most people secretly think and wish they had the balls to say out loud. I love this episode because we find out more about Patrick’s background and what has made him so standoffish. Behind the rude and arrogant posturing is actually a very caring, vulnerable man. I love how protective he is of Will. He SEES Will. Will, who is so insecure and so loveable and sexy, and needs some honest, no-holds-barred loving. Patrick can see through bullshit from miles away, which makes him exactly what Will and the entire town needs. Which brings me to his addiction to the Hurting Times. It’s hilarious what a gossip queen he is, trying to match the Healing citizens to the obscure user names and keep track of the topics du jour. The hard-nosed neurosurgeon is also an astrology buff and yoga expert. Patrick is full of contradictions, which makes him a complex, fascinating character.I love Will equally but for very different reasons. Will’s true nature has been locked behind doors for way too long, and this man needs to discover and embrace his wild self. It’s almost begging to be released, and I can’t wait for that door to finally be unlocked. Healing is that town where everybody knows everybody’s business. There are lots of funny last names (Dr. Knife and Andy Sicko) and quirky characters. Jenny is such a cool friend to Patrick, she can see right past Patrick’s carefully constructed ‘back off’ façade. I love the frank and funny friendship she (and baby Dylan) has with Patrick. So for someone who doesn’t do friendships or relationships, Patrick is certainly protesting too much. I actually don’t want to talk about Ryan. Will’s ex is a massive jerk. The writers have given Will a lot of baggage (recovering alcoholic, diabetic, dysfunctional family and abusive ex), and the baggage Ryan represents needs to be kicked to the curb for good. The UST is off the charts and only gets hotter as the story progresses, so I’m feeling very optimistic that episode three will finally see them getting it on again. Leta Blake writes stories with depth to her characters and she delivers here as well, teaming up with Alice Griffiths brings a very attractive combination of bite and wit to the table. It's refreshing and I love it!On to episode three. I received this as an ARC, in exchange for an honest review.

    4.25 starsI enjoyed this installment alot. Patrick is hilarious. I loved that both guys are opening up more. We get to see a different side to each one of them. We also got to me Will's mom. Ha, I loved the initial meeting at the house. Of course all Patrick cared about was his stomach? This man eats alot. I like that he cares about Will and make sure his sugar never drops. For a person who was against this from the beginning he sure is doing a good job. Outside of the whole mob situation, I like how the authors have this authenticity about Will & Patrick. Neither are perfect, they both have huge issues with their childhood. I was happy to see them open up to each other. I can't wait for the next installment.

    These two are exasperating. And this is dragging. The serial set-up takes the fun and the bite out of what would probably have been an entertaining novella. Dragging a fluff-read out doesn’t quite work. There’s just not enough tension to justify serializing this. The promise of sexual tension sputters, the mafioso threat is fairly nonexistent on the page… The lure is long, but the hook is slipping. (view spoiler)[But REALLY?? After the sexy times in book one, nothing happens in this one? These two horny guys live in the same hotel room and don’t touch each other. At all. What?!!!(hide spoiler)]
