Legally Wed - Rick R Reed - Review

Legally Wed

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?

Review - 4.5/5

I have to admit this is the first Rick R Reed book I have read (it wont be my last!) and I bought it on the recommendation of Amber Kell (but no one tell her that!).

This is a very up close and personal account of the shift in marriage laws up in Seattle, where it rains a lot and people wear socks with sandals (The horror!). 

I don't know where to start with this book. I loved it, and the characters, it didn't matter that you kind of knew how things may go because that was the point. This is a beautiful look at love and all the parts of it we don't always think about. The cuddles, and looking at a nice view together, and the companionship. Sometimes it is about the spark, the sex, but there is the *peace* of absolute certainty that you are with someone who loves you that is often overlooked. 

I loved this book. Very clever. Very real. Recommended.
