ARC Review: Wake Up Married serial, Episodes 1-6 by Leta Blake and Alice Griffiths

Wake Up Married serial, Episodes 1 - 6 (Wake Up Married #1-6)From the blurb:

Join the fun in this romantic comedy serial by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths
Episode One: Will & Patrick Wake Up Married
 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!
Episode Two: Will & Patrick Meet the Family 
Meeting the family is challenging for every new couple. But for Will and Patrick, the awkward family moments only grow more hilarious--and painful--when they must hide the truth of their predicament from the people they care about most. Throw in the sexual tension flaring between them and you've got a recipe for madcap laughs and surprisingly heartwarming feels. 
Episode Three: Will & Patrick Do the Holidays 
A couple’s first holiday season is always a special time. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve are magical when you’re in love. Too bad Will and Patrick’s marriage is a sham and they’re only faking their affection for each other. Or are they? Sparks fly in this episode of the Wake Up Married serial. Will the sexual tension between Will and Patrick finally explode in a needy night of passion? Or will they continue to deny their feelings? 
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?
My rating:


I highly, highly recommend that you buy the entire series at once, because (trust me) you will NOT be able to put it down once you start!

I'm not a huge fan of serials, and so I was wishy-washy about starting Will & Patrick Wake Up Married. However, I was swayed by the excellent reviews and the promise of fun, fluffy, comfort romance. Plus, I'm a sucker for the "accidentally/forced married" trope.

I started the serial off feeling a tiny bit lackluster. Patrick comes off as a huge jerk in the first episode, and I sort of wanted to punch him. More than a little bit. Also, I wasn't expecting third person, present tense, which took a little while to get used to. However, once I got into the swing of things, I literally couldn't stop!

My favorites were some of the middle episodes. They are HOT. Like suuuuuuper hot, and I was pleasently surprised by the light kink. Also, the sexual tension build-up to when they finally get it on again is sooooo worth the wait.

Be prepared to want to smack both guys in the head. They doubt themselves and their relationship way too much, listen to others WAY too much, and have to deal with roadblock after roadblock. But the journey is deliciously satisfying and makes all the *groan* moments worthwhile.

The story is light, sexy, funny, and you'll fall in love with both MCs (especially Patrick). One of the best series I've read in a long time.
