Nathan wants to put a ring on it, but is Owen the marrying kind?

Two years on from their first date, Owen and Nathan are living together and life is good—except they’re not on the same page about marriage.

A traditionalist at heart, Nathan wants it all: the wedding, the vows, and a pair of matching rings. Owen, on the other hand, believes marriage is old-fashioned and unnecessary. They don’t need a wedding to prove their commitment to each other. Love should be enough on its own.

All it takes is one moment of weakness on a night out to force the issue. Owen finds himself engaged after a half-drunk proposal, and Nathan’s enthusiasm sweeps him along. But as the big day approaches, the mounting tension finally combusts.

If he’s going to save their relationship, Owen will need to decide once and for all if he’s truly the marrying kind.

Story Review:

I want to preface my review by saying I didn’t realize this was a sequel. I think that may have added to my feelings about this story. I would say the first book The Dating Game should be read first.

The main characters here are Owen and Nathan, who have been together for a couple years. Owen gets drunk and proposes and Nathan gets very excited about the planning.

For a good part of the book I wondered why Owen and Nathan were together when they obviously wanted different things. It was Northcote’s strong writing that kept me interested at all.

Thought I never really ended up truly connecting with either Owen or Nathan I did care what happened to them. And that’s what really matters.

If you’ve read the first book you’ll enjoy this one. If not go and read that one first then come back here.

Narration Review:

Matthew Lloyd Davies is a strong narrator who brings life to Northcote’s magic words. He totally nailed Owen and Nathan as well as all supporting characters.
