Two rings, a mad dash to the courthouse, and a near meltdown…. Can they survive legalized marriage during Pridefest?
When Chase Manning wakes up on the first morning of PrideFest, the last thing he expects to find is his lover and life partner, Rhys Sayer, on bended knee. But the news that marriage has been legalized in the state is a game changer for both of them.
After a mad dash to the courts, all they want is to find their friends at PrideFest to celebrate. However, what happens when they arrive will bond them together forever—if their friends don’t have a collective meltdown about their sudden disappearance first.
This was a cute little short read of Rhys and Chases wedding day!
I thought it was very sweet you could definitely see how much Rhys loves Chase with the way he wants everything to be perfect for him and to make sure they have the wedding with family and friends. This was such a super fast read I really cant go much more into it without giving this whole novella away. So I will leave this review with I thought this was such a cute and sweet story between these two men and their special day.
All together I really liked this Novella!
I want to start out by saying that if you read Signs of Desire, you do not need to really read this 2.5 version, because it’s in Book #4.
Having said that, it was very sweet how Rhys bides his time, plans and surprises Chase. I do wish that we would have been able to see the aftermath – reception, maybe a honeymoon, etc. but this was a sweet snapshot in to the relationship of Rhys and Chase.
