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.
This story takes place over a two week period but essentially there is far more to it than that and we are given a little back story. Tony and Marc’s parents got together when they were 10 and 11. They grew close and became good friends. As Marc grows and realises he is gay his feeling towards Tony also change. These feelings leave him feeling elated and forlorn at the same time. Although at Uni Marc lives out and proud he has never had the courage to come out to his family.
Staying away from home more and more to avoid confronting his feelings for Tony has worked but he still thinks about him constantly and misses his family. As his dad is due to get married the hiding no longer works and he has to return home and face the man that unknowingly owns his heart. There is a lot of surprises in the run up to the wedding but the biggest one would have to be that Tony feels exactly the same way Marc does.
Both boys are on a rollercoaster of emotions as this story plays out. Marc can actually see himself achieving the one thing in the world that his heart yearns for but is stifled by thoughts of what his family and friends will think. He swings from one emotion to the next and the result is a very hurt Tony who seems to be much more comfortable with coming out to his family and being honest about how he feels.
As Marc continues to struggle his worries are snatched away in one hit when Tony ‘outs’ them in spectacular fashion. Their emotions and attitudes were so well written it reminded me of my own boys and their outbursts and I was left smiling and nodding as I read the book. Great support characters and I felt like cheering from the rafters at the support most of the family gave them.
Ms Wells I now feel cheated!! I would love to know how they get on when they return to London and I have everything crossed that they are strong enough to stay together.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
