A quickie divorce is the most obvious way out—unless you’re the heir of a staunchly Catholic mafia boss with a draconian position on the sanctity of marriage.Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Will and Patrick don't like it, or each other, but they have to make the best of it until they can find another way out of their marriage. To ensure the trust fund Will's charitable foundation relies on isn't revoked by his mobster grandfather, he and Patrick travel to Will’s hometown of Healing, South Dakota, posing as a newlywed couple in the throes of true love at first sight.Complicating their scheme are Will’s unresolved feelings for his all-too-recent ex-boyfriend Ryan, and Patrick’s desire to get back to the only thing that really matters to him in life: neurosurgery. Will they fool everyone? Or will the mafia get wind that their marriage is a fake? Throw their simmering attraction into the mix and all bets are off!...

Will & Patrick Wake Up Married Reviews

    Lots of potential, but a bit of an awkward start.I've owned the first three book in this serial forever but when I got a chance to review the whole series for the authors, I decided to take the plunge and read the whole thing back to back. I honestly struggle with the serial format, so reading it novel-style is much more my thing. First of all, I wasn't expecting third person, present tense, which is always a really jarring writing style for me. Everything present tense starts off irking me, but I'm hoping I get more used to it as I go along. I absolutely love the enemies-to-lovers (though they certainly consummated that marriage... HARD) format. I have a real weakness for a love that grows out of nothing and over a long period of time, and so I can't wait to see how this relationship turns around. Patrick is more than a little bit of an ass, but I think he'll grow on me. I like that he isn't like other characters that I'm used to reading. It's refreshing, honestly. Can't wait to see where Episode 2 takes me!

    3.5 Stars! If I could describe this book/start of the series in one word it would be FUN....But really I need three more......OVER THE TOP fun! But that's okay, I knew that going into it. And I really did have fun reading this first installment. It's most definitely completely unrealistic. But again, I knew that going in to it. I really like Will and Patrick and I laughed out loud a lot. So I am looking forward to seeing where things go with them.

    I'm not really into reading short books, (and this is short to me) but the title really sold this book for me. Then I started reading it and I started thinking it wasn't going to be for me. But by the end of the book I was totally hooked. The guys are what had me so invested. I REALLY loved Patrick. The man is a sarcastic asshole. In other words, he speaks my language. I found him to be hilarious. He also shows a bit of his heart by the way he takes care of Will when his health isn't so good. Will... I adore Will. He is just so good. He's kinda like a hero. Using his money for good and saving lives. But he's a little selfish and only really thinking about himself and how the situation is affecting him and not really taking in how the situation has totally screwed Patrick professionally. Their situation is a little far out there but it didn't bother me. Who knows, this shit could happen!

    The first part of this serial is a delight. Such a great introduction to these characters and their tropey predicament. There are certain tropes I just adore, and forced/pretend marriage is one of them. It's so freaking FUN. Patrick is hilariously prickly, and I can't wait to see sweet Will get under his shell. There are tantalizing hints of the sexual hotness coming when they do hook up again (presumably they'll be sober this time!). I love UST and character development, and this series has it in spades. Can't wait for more!

    There's a lot of potential in this and I'm mollified that there are five more installments to go to see how this plays out. So yes, take one grouchy, asshole of a surgeon. He's sworn off having any sort of relation-type feelings, but whose subconscious has played a mean trick on him by drunkenly marrying himself to a complete stranger.Then take said stranger who was drunkenly wallowing in his own sad story and have it nigh impossible to get divorced. Hence a crazy set up as these two try to maintain appearances while desperately trying to annul their union. At times exasperating in its moments of farcicality, this had some good spots of humor and tenderness. One can only hope it will evolve into something more steamy and emotional, since unfortunately, the night of debauchery where it all began, is sorely missing.

    Full review originally posted at Sinfully... Addicted to All Male RomanceThe title gives away the main plot point and also tells you what happens when the story starts. Will Patterson is at a convention trying to woo neurologists into coming to the new division his charitable trust has set up in a hospital in his hometown. Dr. Patrick McCloud is a neurosurgeon grudgingly attending the event to kiss up to his boss. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas unless there is no easy way out of it. That’s what Will finds out after waking up with the mother of all hangovers next to a stranger with a wedding ring. Things only get worse when Will realizes he’s also wearing a wedding ring and memories start to surface of a phone call from Ryan breaking up with him, drinking in the bar and the best sex of his life with the sexy, naked stranger in bed with him. Patrick’s recollections are similar and just as they agree to a quickie divorce, Will remembers something that will make that impossible. Without going into detail, the story involves a mafia family, millions of dollars in ill-gotten gains in a trust that has an oddly strict moral clause and a series of personal setbacks for both Will and Patrick. They soon find themselves back in Will’s small hometown in South Dakota trying to figure out how to dissolve the marriage with as little collateral damage as possible, while playing happy couple for the sake of the family spies and the nosy townsfolk.I have a thing for snarky characters and I loved Patrick, even though at times he can be an asshole (a term he applied to himself). He is brutally honest, not looking to make friends or charm anyone and although he won’t admit it out loud, he really likes Will. He is certain of his abilities as a doctor, but his lack of social skills tend to get him in trouble. As much as his snarky attitude may be off-putting, he goes well out of his way to help Will. Most of what comes out of his mouth had me laughing, but for the most part everything he says is right on point.Will was a bit of a wet blanket at first and frankly he can be an asshole too, but unlike Patrick he doesn’t realize it. Wallowing in “woe is me” and hung up on a now ex-boyfriend who clearly is not worthy of him, Will barely gives a second thought to what he is putting Patrick through. Patrick is giving in and rolling with Will’s needs, caring for Will when he is neglecting his health and Will can’t muster a thank you until Patrick points out how ungrateful he’s been. I started out feeling sad for Will, then I was annoyed and cheered when Patrick bluntly laid things out for him. He’s struggling with some demons though and I liked the spark he showed when he inevitably runs into his ex, Ryan, which leads me to believe I’ll really warm up to him once he comes out of his shell.I thought this was a really good start to the serial. Both men are clearly attracted to each other and have the same ultimate goal, but they have such polar opposite outlooks on life and how to go about things, that I can’t wait to see them navigate what’s coming. If they don’t physically kill each other first the underlying sexual tension just might do the trick! We don’t get to see them in bed, but the few memories we’re treated to and hints of some shared kinks are enough of a promise to keep me going.Fast paced and very entertaining, the first Episode of Will & Patrick has left me wanting more. Next up, Will has to take Patrick to face the wrath of his mother.

    2.5 StarsThat didn't turn out to be quite what I was expecting, which has me slightly disappointed. Granted, there is nothing particularly bad about this story - the writing is solid, and the premise, although not very original, provided a bit of outrageous fun - I just felt disconnected from the whole thing in general. My main concern is that Will and Patrick did nothing for me as lead characters. Will was a little whiny for my tastes. His constant talk of his obviously douchey ex-boyfriend, Ryan, and how he wanted to desperately win him back, just annoyed me and made me think less of Will as a person. And Patrick. Hmm. I can tell that Patrick, in all his arrogance and snark, was possibly meant to be funny? But I found nothing humorous about his character. Instead, he seemed like an asshole with a god complex, who had zero clue how or when to say the right thing in any of his personal interactions. Don't get me wrong, I usually enjoy a snarky character who lacks social skills, and I can see how this was meant to come across as such, but it just fell flat for me. Luckily - or unluckily, depending on how you look at it - I'm slightly OCD and feel the need to see this serial through to its close. Hopefully I get more out of these characters as their kooky story continues.

    How to read the book...Put on rose colored glasses first. Then open this sweet, funny lovable book up. Cuz.....after, I put my rose colored glasses on, I had a blast! I LMAO, and just had fun....why? Well for starters it helped that I love my MM romance that ends or begins in marriage. That has ALWAYs been one of my favorite trope's in my MM books. Along with " you almost died" trope. And, I kind of got both in this book. This book was an easy flowing read. Despite the tense that this book was written in....I loved the intro to pieces. But, I was bogged down with the present tense writing style. Honestly, I loath present tense writing. And, I generally detest off page smexin' in an adult book. And, I'm greedy, I want everything in my books. Honestly, I like at least 1 smexy scene to make me 5 star happy. Or at least a 1 sizzle-mush kiss, to make me 4 star happy. I did missed both in this book. But, I will admit this book was funny, and super fun within the pages. And, I loved both MCs, however, Will was hung up on his ass-hole ex I could not bring myself to like and/or enjoy that. Patrick was a sarcastic jerk most of the time, oh sorry Dr. McCloud was a jerk. And that did not tickle me pink. But, somehow I still adored Will And, Patrick. I also loved the sickly (DM)aspect of Will, and Patrick's sweet! I wanted more of that. Hopefully I will get more in the next book. Ok, off I go to read the next book. 3.5 Rose-colored glasses Stars ❤️

    4 stars!Will & Patrick Wake Up Married has been an excellent start to a new series. It is incredibly funny, well written and has interesting characters! And I have to admit that Will and Patrick are very likely to end up as one of my favorite m/m couples - the chemistry between them is amazing and the authors managed to make them feel very real. I won't go into detail when it comes to the content of the story - there are quite a few reviews out there doing an amazing job and I don't feel that there is anything I could add. I am thus just going to share my feelings - this book is hot - very hot - it is basically the definition of sexual tension! And the characters are very intriguing - sweet Will and grumpy Patrick - they seem to be so different from each other, but I have the feeling that they are going to be perfect togehter! I am definitly going for the rest of this series!

    A slapstick farce with incongruous issues thrown in.I found the dialogue stilted and the characters odd enough to wonder if this originated as fanfic. The main characters consist of arrogant doctor Patrick and whiny dependent Will, neither who I could like or care about. Situations are blown too far into the ridiculous for me to suspend disbelief despite generally liking this trope. Then there's diabetes, alcoholism and dying children - which doesn't suit the hyper silly tone and rubbed me the wrong way.Humour is subjective, a bright silly bundle of errors if it's your thing, but didn't work for me.

    We all know I like Leta Blake's work alot, so anything she releases I'm going to want alot. I thought it was a cool idea for a romantic comedy with M/M romance. It started off really good to me. Will is disorientated and naked in bed with a man who isn't Ryan he boyfriend, yet Ryan broke up with him the night before. We all have been there done that with alcohol involved. Typical break up behavior ensued. Well this time Will went overboard and got himself married Vegas style. Patrick was hilarious to me. I liked his sarcasm and snark. He generally didn't panic as much as Will. This started out really well for me, and then the fire kind of died out. I'm think all the things surrounding the marriage took away from Patrick and Will. We saw glimpse of Patrick trying to be there for Will despite the situation at hand. I can't wait to see what happens next for these two. Maybe they will actually end up liking each other. Only time will tell.

    This was just as good on a second read! Absolute magic! so my original review stands:That was so much fun! The banter between Will and Patrick is excellent, their characterization brilliant and the plot's hilarious and not as implausible as I thought when I read the blurb.I loved both guys, even though Patrick was such a cynic, sarcastic a****** at times. But even though he's pretty good at behaving badly, I get the distinct impression that there is a huge soft centre to his prickly shell and that he simply doesn't allow himself to be vulnerable.A brilliant start to the series in every way - I'm totally invested into the two MCs and what's going to happen next. Can't wait!

    This is my second book in a row where excessive drinking leads to the "morning after" comedy of errors. I think I need a shelf for that. The story is quite enjoyable, but the characters can be extremely frustrating at times, especially Will. He is whiny and he doesn't express himself very well outside his "mafia relations".I don't understand why Present Tense is necessary in this book. I don't love it to begin with and failing to see how it supports the story or adds to it, I have no choice but to remove one star from my rating.Final score 2.75

    I read a few drunken marriage in Vegas story, but this is my first for a m/m romance, so I'm pretty intrigued. Patrick is a neurosurgeon, an obnoxious, rude and undeniably sexy man. Oh, how I fantasize tapping his mouth, spanking him and tied him up. He makes me wanted to hit him and smoother him with the nearest pillow. On the other hand, Will is a ball of nerves and a total mess.After their drunken mishap that lead to marriage, they both wanted to get an instant divorce, but due to Will's circumstances he can't divorce. I thought the whole mafia background was pretty wicked. However, Will's being a total love sick fool towards his despicable ex is a bit tiresome. I hope Patrick will sort him out soon.Overall, I'm loving this romantic comedy, can't wait for more to come.

    Original review 11/5/15I mean, drunk-married? Will and Patrick are all kinds of messed up. And I loved them. The third-person narrative lends to the confused, jangled feel of their story— recovering alcoholic, arrogant brain surgeon, gossipy small-town folk, mafia-family shenanigans— it didn’t bother me. It worked. And throw in some good belly laughs. What was irksome was getting to an ending that spelled SERIAL. (Amazon shows 'Episode 1' in the title which is a clue. But, interestingly enough, that's missing on GR.) Ugh. There’s no resolution, you have to read the next one. Which, of course, I shall do. dammit.Amended 11/12/15: The GR story blurb now shows that this is a serial and will include 6 episodes. Thanks for the update!

    This is my second time reading this and it's still cute!!I love Leta Blake and was obsessed with this series when it first came out. I am doing a re-read because I didn't get to read the final installment and now it's been ages so I am brushing up on their history.God, Patrick is such an a$$, but OMG I love him!! And I am so eager to see Will finally let go of Ryan (talk about an a$$). This is so cute and funny, but it has its serious comments too. I do recommend this and can't wait to finally get to the end and see their HEA.

    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 this line in it: Luckily, Patrick isn't impressed by pretty women. Being gay is sometimes a tactical advantage.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.

    Quite enjoyed this one, and some of Patrick's rants were really funny. The present tense is a little disconcerting, just not used to it, but the various secondary characters were well thought out, and I suspect Granny Eleanora will have a great say in how things turn out. 4 stars from me.

    Oh look, I actually read a freebie grab. I know you are supposed to suspend disbelief and just enjoy this sort of thing, but i had a hard time getting past the premise. Cute if you like a forced pairing trope, even if you can guess where they will end up.

    “Oh my God.” In a whoosh of tumbling horror, Will remembers it all. No, no, this can’t be happening. “We got married.”Patrick presses the palms of his hands against his eyes, shaking his head furiously. “For the love of—oh, you’ve got to… For the record, this cannot be happening.”Patrick is finally on board the panic train and Will’s ready to ride it with him ..."In Vegas to meet/greet and potentially hire a doctor for the hospital in his home town of Healing, South Dakota, Will Patterson awakens after a horrendous bender -- brought about by his long-term on-and-off boyfriend Ryan dumping him (over the phone ... while (view spoiler)[alcoholic (hide spoiler)] Will is sitting in a bar) -- and meets ... his new husband, Dr. Patrick McCloud, a neurosurgeon and self-described "asshole". In a contemporary take on regency romances and their farcical "marriage of convenience" tropes, Patrick reluctantly agrees to remain married to Will and return with him to Healing, SD, but only until the conditions of an iron-clad family trust can be sorted out - one with hundreds of millions of dollars that Will controls and has created a charitable foundation that does wonderful things for those in need. Oh, and Will's father is a big-time Mob boss and if Will marries for anything other than love and gets divorced ...... the Family takes over the money. Let the fun begin!I received an ARC of this book from the author via IndiGo Marketing & Design in exchange for an honest review.

    This book was kooky but enjoyable. I just wish that the premise was a little more believable. I quite like Patrick even though he's a real jerk. Will is sort of wishy washy...with his addiction, his ex-boyfriend. The whole money-mob-marriage thing is way too far fetched.I'm still hooked though, so I'm for sure continue the series just to see what these 2 get up to next.
