A Wonderful Amazon Review

The most wonderful thing for an author is when a reader totally 'gets' you. That was the case with this spot-on Amazon review:

5.0 out of 5 stars True love is worth waiting for!, February 8, 2014
This review is from: Legally Wed (Kindle Edition)
This is not the typical romance story, at least not in the sense of man meets man, they deal with some issues, fall in love and live happily ever after. In most books the story is centred around the main characters, allowing us, the reader, to get to know these men as they discover each other.

However this book is more one man’s journey as he reaches the point in his life where he wants marriage and a home and a family. Duncan’s latest relationship is a bust as a finds he was on a totally different wavelength to the man he just proposed to. In his grief he decides that marrying a straight woman (in an open fashion) is the way to go. He places an ad which leads him to Marilyn.

Marilyn is a driving force in this book and is absolutely wonderful – a strong, tell-it-like-it-is woman who agrees to marry Duncan after they get to know each other. Duncan and Marilyn’s whole arrangement sounds absolutely insane to me however the author does such a great job of providing insight into Duncan’s frame of mind and reasoning that somehow it makes sense that he would do such a thing!

Yes, I wanted Duncan to find the man of his dreams earlier. Yes, I wanted the interaction between the two men to happen earlier (it was fabulous when it finally did!) but Duncan’s journey needed to be experienced to make his happy-ever-after all that more special.

This is a story that reinforces that there is someone out there for everyone. You may need to wait a while to find them, things might not always be perfect and there can be pain but you need to grab true love when you find it and make the most of it. Don’t settle for second best because everyone deserves the magic.

I loved seeing the little reflections of the author’s own life woven throughout the story. If you don’t know much about Rick R. Reed, do check out his bio/website or the blog posts he’s done in conjunction with this book release and you will see what I mean!
