Will & Patrick Wake Up Married by Blake and Griffiths: Review

will and patrick ep 1synopsisJoin the fun in this vibrant first installment of the new romantic comedy serial by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths! 

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. 

Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Will and Patrick don’t like it, or each other, but they have to make the best of it until they can find another way out of their marriage. To ensure the trust fund Will’s charitable foundation relies on isn’t revoked by his mobster grandfather, he and Patrick travel to Will’s hometown of Healing, South Dakota, posing as a newlywed couple in the throes of true love at first sight. 

Complicating their scheme are Will’s unresolved feelings for his all-too-recent ex-boyfriend Ryan, and Patrick’s desire to get back to the only thing that really matters to him in life: neurosurgery. Will they fool everyone? Or will the mafia get wind that their marriage is a fake? Throw their simmering attraction into the mix and all bets are off! 

Episode 1 of 6 in the Wake Up Married serial.

paula review

OMG…this is going to be a good one. It starts off snarky and just keeps going. I laughed quite a bit during this. I don’t usually read serials, I like when I book has a beginning, middle, and an end but I thought I would give this a shot. These two characters are awesome. First you have Will,who seems like a really nice guy,who just happens to be a mob boss’ grandson. Then you have Patrick, a kind of cold snotty nerosurgeon. Following a crappy phony call from Will’s on and off boyfriend, you have a night with lots of alcohol (which is a no-no for recovering alcoholic Will) and a Vegas wedding with his new “friend” Patrick. Unfortunately there can be no anullment(they consumated the wedding) and if they divorce Will loses the trust left by his great-grandfather due to the no divorce clause in it. The secondary characters are entertaining as well so far. Can’t wait to see what happens next.
