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?

I read a few drunken marriage in Vegas story, but this is my first for a m/m romance, so I'm pretty intrigued. Patrick is a neurosurgeon, an obnoxious, rude and undeniably sexy man. Oh, how I fantasize tapping his mouth, sp@nking him and tied him up. He makes me wanted to hit him and smoother him with the nearest pillow. On the other hand, Will is a ball of nerves and a total mess.

After their drunken mishap that lead to marriage, they both wanted to get an instant divorce, but due to Will's circumstances he can't divorce. I thought the whole mafia background was pretty wicked. However, Will's being a total love sick fool towards his despicable ex is a bit tiresome. I hope Patrick will sort him out soon.

In Episode 2, Patrick have to meet Will's dysfunctional family and try to settle down in the Podunk town. Patrick is as infuriating as ever and I love him. Will one the other hand is such a poor thing, in fact he is a total doormat. Whenever his beloved ex, Ryan showed up, I just turned murderous. If this is really a mafia story, I would want someone to just settle him. What the fuck is wrong with the guy? I can't imagine Will spent so many years with that jerk of the century. 

Anyway, despite all my hatred for the ex, he is absolutely a great fodder for this series. I just can't wait for Will to realize that Patrick is much more awesome that his ex. As for Will and Patrick's relationship progression, things are moving slow. But they are getting to know each other better and some sexual tension is definitely present. 

Episode 3: This might just turned into one of my favorite series. Will and Patrick is definitely worming their ways into my heart. Will finally manage to get Patrick to open up about his past and we get a little glimpse into his childhood. In fact, I'm bracing myself for more to come. It seems like Patrick is hiding a closet full of skeleton. 

Marriage life seems agreeable to Will and Patrick and they settle down to a comfortable routine. The closer they got, the harder it is to fight the feelings. Well mostly, lustful feelings. But I think I can the see light at the end of the tunnel already. We are due for some sexy times!

I actually read the ebook first and I absolutely adore this series. After I listened to it, I can say I love it even more. The narration is fantastic and I can wait to listen to the rest.
