Mrs. Condit & Friends Read Books, gave 4-1/2 stars to my latest, Legally Wed, and had this to say about my gay romance revolving around marriage equality:
"Legally Wed by Rick Reed is a quirky, zany, lighthearted tale that also has its serious side. This is a character driven tale with a smooth plot flow, and characters who are vivid, three dimensional, and find themselves in a situation that all too many people can relate to. The author’s writing style is refreshingly original, crisp, and insightful, pulling you into the story from the first page and you find yourself caring for the MCs-laughing, crying, and cheering for them. I absolutely adored this story..."
Read the whole review here.
Love comes along when you least expect it. That’s what Duncan Taylor’s sister, Scout, tells him. Scout has everything Duncan wants—a happy life with a wonderful husband. Now that Seattle has made gay marriage legal, Duncan knows he can have the same thing. But when he proposes to his boyfriend Tucker, he doesn’t get the answer he hoped for. Tucker’s refusal is another misstep in a long line of failed romances. Despairing, Duncan thinks of all the loving unions in his life—and how every one of them is straight. Maybe he could be happy, if not sexually compatible, with a woman. When zany, gay-man-loving Marilyn Samples waltzes into his life, he thinks he may have found his answer.
Determined to settle, Duncan forgets his sister’s wisdom about love and begins planning a wedding with Marilyn. But life throws Duncan a curveball. When he meets wedding planner Peter Dalrymple, unexpected sparks ignite. Neither man knows how long he can resist his powerful attraction to the other. For sure, there’s a wedding in the future. But whose?
