The Christmas Eve wedding Evan Cleary pulled together in four weeks is crashing down around him and taking his fledgling event planning business with it. With an empty altar and over a hundred guests arriving soon, he turns to the resistant, gorgeous brother of the runaway groom for help.
When Richard Patterson’s flamboyant brother storms out hours before he’s scheduled to marry his equally dramatic partner, Richard is left dealing with the fallout. The last thing he wants is more drama, yet he can’t deny his attraction to the effeminate event planner trying to salvage the wedding.
Evan thinks his crush on Richard is a lost cause, but one steaming kiss later, he learns different. What starts as a night of hot sex turns into a connection neither expected. But Evan knows their relationship is hopeless unless the ultra-conservative Richard can embrace every part of him—both in private and in public.
Queue did the <a href=”http://www.prismbookalliance.com/2016/01/champagne-kisses-by-lynda-aicher-book-review-by-queue/” target=”_blank”>original review for the eBook of Champagne Kisses by Lynda Aicher</a>.
I wish I could add to his review or elevate it, but I have to agree with every point he made. I never connected with these boys.
Here is Queue’s original review:
Sometimes books are written beautifully with no discernible mistakes and the reader still doesn’t like it. This was the situation here. I didn’t really care for the book though I’m not exactly sure why.
The main characters here are wedding planner Evan Cleary and jilted husband Richard Patterson. Evan and Richard argue but the animosity turns to passion. After some hot sex they wonder if what they have could be more than just heat between the sheets.
I never connected with these guys, never cared about either one of them or if they would end up together. I’m not sure if this my fault or the authors. I tend to think this was more my fault because I like a little more tension in my stories. Aicher writes impeccably, that’s for sure.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this novella for anyone who likes this sort of thing. Hot guys with opposite personalities having hot sex.
The highlight of this story for me was Tobias Silversmith’s narration. Evan and Richard are very different guys, but he brings both of them to life and makes the two hours this audiobook lasts a pleasure.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
