Tony Porter and Marc Powell had lived in the same house for the past eight years, since their single parents moved in together. When Tony’s mother Marie and Marc’s father Dennis decide to tie the knot at last, it should be an occasion of great joy for everyone. Except all Marc can think about is having to spend the next two weeks with the young man he’s been in love with since he was sixteen.
Tony feels so torn about Marc coming home from college. He keeps telling himself that it’s wrong to feel this way about him. After all, in two weeks’ time they’ll be related. So when the two young men are thrown together to prepare for the wedding, tensions rise and discoveries are made.
It’s going to be a very long two weeks, and a wedding that no one will ever forget.
Beautifully written love story, about first love, and an unusual way of coming out to their family. At times I found myself laughing at the story line. But at the same time it was so touching that it brought tears to my eyes.
The story had a bit of a twist on how they knew each other, but the author captured their story beautifully.
This book had everything; characters that came off the page, a story that held your attention and written so well it flowed wonderfully.
From the moment I started it, I didn’t want to put it down. The characters struggled with so many issues, that the author made it feel so real. Loved the book, would highly recommend it.
I really enjoyed this story. The characters were well thought out and had very good background. Hannah, Marc and Tony were my favorite characters.
While the family is getting ready to become a blended family permanently, Marc is trying to figure out how to deal with romantic feelings towards his soon to be step brother, Tony.
It was a little annoying how uncertain Marc was about his feelings. Despite having reservations, Tony is much more open with himself and his feelings towards Marc. The back and forth that goes on is realistic and heartbreaking to all parties involved.
The author was able to capture a great family dynamic. There is always that one sibling who knows all of the family gossip, there is the one sibling that is quiet and more pensive and then there are the parents who are trying to keep everything going.
I also liked how the bio-dad was portrayed for Tony. That despite Tony’s mom wanting her kids to not think poorly of their father, that she was willing to come clean about their marriage. I thought that it helped explain some of the angst in the story. However, I do wish that there would have been more dialogue between Tony and his father. It seemed like the author put this twist in the story, but then kind of glossed over how Tony was feeling or what, I think, would have at least garnered a discussion.
In the end, I thought that this book held great family drama, a heart warming love story and showed great acceptance from family, if not a little hesitant at first.

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C.Wells always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way.
K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, where the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings – writing about men in love was even hotter…
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career.
The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
