Summary

Continue the fun in episodes 4-6 of the soapy serial by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths! 

Episode Four: Will & Patrick Fight Their Feelings

Will and Patrick have embraced adding hot sexy times to their fake marriage, but as their emotions deepen, they confront whether or not they want to be more than friends-with-benefits. The heat is high (and occasionally kinky) as Will and Patrick struggle to accept their mutual affection.

Episode Five: Will & Patrick Meet the Mob

Patrick has finally accepted that he's in love with Will, but his newfound determination to do something about that runs up against his father-in-law's mobster plans. Will must face the truth about his family before he can fully come to terms with his feelings for Patrick. And Patrick has to decide if this whackadoodle world is something he truly wants to be part of forever.

Episode Six: Will & Patrick's Happy Ending

Sure, Will, and Patrick are in love now, but they weren’t when they got married in Vegas. For Patrick, that’s no problem, but Will can’t shake his doubts that a relationship started through coercion can ever become the real deal. Since the Molinaro crime family has reversed their position on divorce, Will and Patrick have a chance to rectify their drunken mistake. But is divorce the right choice for them?

Off the Charts!!!!

I loved the books!!!! This has an entirely different approach to the cultural and social waves that happen with the LGB disposition - and adds Patrick and his residence in the Spectrum. Take a independently wealthy philanthropist (Will) in the middle of South Dakota, who has always been sheltered and a type I diabetic - cross him in Las Vegas (after a breakup) with Patrick, a brilliant neurosurgeon on the spectrum. This couple may seem too "out there" with this brief description, but you can only read and listen to their beautiful story to believe. Patrick is mid thirties, Will is 26, and Patrick has seen alot of life, had alot of pain - Will is a soul who feels deeply and has just been dumped by the guy his entire family has pushed him to be with, over and over again, to "keep him safe". This guy, Ryan keeps Will anything but safe.. and really is selfish, period - so good riddance, but it takes a bit for Will to understand that. In the meantime, Will & Patrick meet at a medical convention in Las Vegas, Will is drowning his sorrows, and Patrick sees him and somehow knows this guy is worth reaching outside of his self imposed autism walls. Patrick is nothing but straightforward and honest - sometimes painfully so. Will resists - but something starts to happen - - and through the stages of all these books this is 4-6 (there is a book 7 - and possibly another to follow!!! through all these books is a mesmerizing transformation of two people who are wonderful and just meant! Leta & Alice - please work together again and PS Please PLEASE (put all the rest of the series (through #7) on Audible! Can't wait - read this series 3 X and have listened to this recording twice - perfect!!!! PS and hoping for more on Will & Patricks life after honeymoon! John Solo is perfect narrator for these two!!!!!

I can't get enough of Will & Patrick

After listening to Episode 1-3, I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series. As stated previously, I actually read the ebooks first and I absolutely adore the series. The narration is fantastic and John Solo really gave the extra dimension to the characters that I love. If you are fan of the series, this audio should not be miss and if you are new to the series, just dive in!

In Episode 4, things getting dirtier and kinkier and also heavier. I can't believe they went all BDSM on each other. But it was definitely welcome. I like their kinky fun vibe, which is not too intense. Things are definitely heating up between the sheets for these two.

We also get to learn of Patrick's deepest darkest secret. It was sad, but nothing too hard to swallow. As per the title, they are fighting their feelings for each other. I guess, I better do a full sum after I finish the series. Things get a bit blurred for me and I'm not sure what happens in which installment.

Episode 5: Oh, daddy mobster finally make his appearance in here. Since the beginning, we know about Will's mob connection, but never actually seen anything concrete beside the possible spy creeping around. Tony Molinaro is here now and he is not quite what I'm expecting.

Patrick got more than what he bargained for when he is facing possible lawsuit and threats from his dearest father-in-law. Coupled with all his new found feelings for Will, he is questioning his own sanity. Honestly, waiting for Patrick to just confess his love is keeping me on the edge of my seat. Can't he just get over it already!

Episode 6: Will and Patrick is a couple that I grow to love as the series progress. In this #6, I think all the self-inflicted misery is kind of a downer (Thank God we have #7 to make up for it). Patrick finally confessed his feelings after a long procrastination, and surprisingly Will reciprocate as well. But Will is doubting everything, due to his own addiction (he's now wondering is he having sex addition too. Thanks Owen) and doubting Patrick's commitment. So there is some painful moments that we have to deal with, but we know they gonna pull their head out their a**es sooner or later. The good point is we finally get to meet Patrick's foster family and they both a great couple. Will have some groveling to do, and I'm glad at least we have some hot make up sex.

Happily ever after

As you might suspect this book, or books, do not stand on their own in any way shape or form. Each book continues where the previous left off, to the point where the chapters count off as well. When we left the boys last, if I remember correctly, they’d consummated their marriage yet again and that’s also where we meet up again here in this serial. Personally I’m not fond of that much sex in the beginning of a book; it puts me off the rest of it. Add in the kinky factor (breath play and bondage) and well… it probably coloured my enjoyment for the rest of it.

Patrick is, to his surprise, settling in at the hospital. Meeting patients and more importantly operating, few things are as important as cutting into brains. Sure he’s still married, but even that is starting to feel right, just as Will is starting to feel right. He’s even picking up a friend or two in this cold town. But Will’s family – the mafia side is causing troubles left and right and he has to decide what and who he wants.

Patrick isn’t the only one who’s starting to feel positive about their marriage. Will too is feeling the rightness of it - and Patrick. He's starting to re-think what he wants from life - starting with his husband. But outside forces aren’t always kind to him; his addiction, family, ex and even sponsor are all trying to sway him, and soon he doesn’t know which way is up or down.

Just like the first books I still have an issue with Patrick. I always have a hard time with people and characters that act as if they were superior to others and treat others like they are beneath them. That’s a big no for me and gets my rankles up big time. Then there is the way he treats Will, like he’s a child. I mean he’s been living with his diabetes for his entire life (more or less) I think he knows how it works by now. At least I would assume so, seeing as he somehow managed to survive before Patrick ever got into the picture.

John Solo is easily the best part of this book. His distinct voices and great pacing made it easy to listen and follow along. I loved how he portrayed Patrick so perfectly. His personality and arrogance really came through with his performance. So while I can’t stand the man, I can appreciate the brilliant way he Solo brought him to life.

I enjoyed listening to the first serial of the lives of Will and Patrick and how they ended up married, but this time around I didn’t enjoy them as much. A lot of the time I felt like their story didn’t go anywhere; it was just rehashing the same thing over and over or adding drama for the sake of drawing the story out even more. So when I reached the end of the book I was happy that they had gotten their happily ever after. Because honestly, after the 25ish hours that I’ve spent with these guys I was very ready to say goodbye and leave them off living their lives.

A copy of this book was generously provided by the authors in exchange for an honest review for Love Bytes.

Another fantastic audio performance by John Solo.

After I finished listening to the first three episodes of this serial (Will and Patrick Wake-Up Married 1-3) I couldn't wait to listen to the next three. But, wait I had to because I knew the next audiobook wouldn't be released for at least a couple more months. IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT!

Like I said in my review of episodes 1-3, I really believe John Solo's performance is more than a good bit of why I liked this so much. The writing and story are great but I just don't think I would have heard the individual characters as distinctly in my own mind as I did while listening to John's performance. And it truly is a performance. Each character has a distinct voice and the way he conveys the depth of emotion that each of them feels is just amazing.

Patrick progressed from being pretty much unlikable in episode one to being my favorite character by the end of episode six 6. I was sobbing in some places for what his character goes through but there are also light-hearted moments. And the sexy time? OMG what these two guys get up to. They are a bit on the kinky side but nothing too outrageous.

Will is his same sweet self but he becomes a tiger when dealing with his douchebag of a father – who, by the end, maybe ends up not being as much of a douchebag as I first thought. I love the voice that John does for Will's father.

I really can't say enough good things about this audiobook. I highly recommend it but you do need to listen to, or read, episodes 1-3 first.

An advanced copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
