Will & Patrick Wake Up Married

Maybe this isn’t love. Maybe he just needs to see a cardiologist.

Will & Patrick Wake Up Married

Format:
Audiobook & ebook

Note: This was originally released as a serial of six episodes. It has also been bundled (in ebook & audiobook) into two sets consisting of Books 1-3 & 4-6. Economically – the most recent bundle of all 6 books is the best deal & that’s what I’ve linked above.

A 7th episode, Will & Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon has also been released. Audio & ebook.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
After a drunken night of hot sex in Vegas, strangers Will Patterson and Dr. Patrick McCloud wake up married. 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. Throw their simmering attraction into the mix and all bets are off!

You can find the synopsis of each individual episode on Leta Blake’s website.

Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating character POV, not always by chapter but clearly defined.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
At 25 hours this is a wonderful deal and perfect when you’re in the mood for slightly OTT funny, but with a bit of a serious side too. As it is a serial, it feels more like a season of TV than the traditional novel – but I enjoyed that approach. The set up (like most “fake marriages”) is a little hokey – but once that’s established it’s a lot of fun. Will & Patrick are unique characters bringing their own baggage to this impromptu marriage. Small town residents, including Will’s family and his ex, are all looking to give their opinions and advice.

I don’t want to spoil anything as the unfolding of Will & Patrick’s individual histories is part of what makes this so enjoyable. I will say that I loved that this unfolded over several months so I felt fully invested in and completely convinced by the love that these two find. It’s a fun trip.

Narration:
John Solo is perfect here. He does an amazing job of giving all the characters unique voices and personalities. With families and a whole town adding to the cast Solo has a HUGE number of people to perform and does it wonderfully.

About the authors:
Leta Blake: Author of the bestselling book Smoky Mountain Dreams and the fan favorite Training Season, Leta Blake’s educational and professional background is in psychology and finance, respectively. However, her passion has always been for writing. She enjoys crafting romance stories and exploring the psyches of made up people. At home in the Southern U.S., Leta works hard at achieving balance between her day job, her writing, and her family.

Alice Griffiths: Hi, you’ll find me over at P A Wilson. I started my author career with two different pen names because I had wonderful visions of writing lovely romances under Alice and gritty stories under P A. What happened in the real world was, all my romances contain gritty stuff and all my gritty stuff so far contained some element of romance. So I consolidated everything under P A Wilson.

Perry Wilson is a Canadian author based in Vancouver, BC who has big ideas and an itch to tell stories. Having spent some time on university, a career, and life in general, she returned to writing in 2008 and hasn’t looked back since (well, maybe a little, but only while parallel parking).

About the narrator:
John Solo has been a professional performer for 20 years, although this whole acting thing is a relatively new development. Prior to all of this he made his living as a salesman, engineer, security guard, mechanic, construction worker, purveyor of polyester dress suits… The list goes on ad nauseum, but he prefers to think of himself as an Itinerant Adventurer and loveable scoundrel! When not acting like someone else in front of a microphone, John prefers to indulge in the simpler things in life; games of chance, sword-fighting and traveling the world… all from the comforts of his own overstuffed couch.
