Legally Wed by Rick R. Reed

Love comes along when you least expect it. That’s what Duncan Taylor’s sister, Scout, tells him. Scout has everything Duncan wants—a happy life with a wonderful husband. Now that Seattle has made gay marriage legal, Duncan knows he can have the same thing. But when he proposes to his boyfriend Tucker, he doesn’t get the answer he hoped for. Tucker’s refusal is another misstep in a
long line of failed romances. Despairing, Duncan thinks of all the loving unions in his life—and how every one of them is straight. Maybe he could be happy, if not sexually compatible, with a woman. When zany, gay-man-loving Marilyn Samples waltzes into his life, he thinks he may have found his answer.
Determined to settle, Duncan forgets his sister’s wisdom about love and begins planning a wedding with Marilyn. But life throws Duncan a curveball. When he meets wedding planner Peter
Dalrymple, unexpected sparks ignite. Neither man knows how long he can resist his powerful attraction to the other. For sure, there’s a wedding in the future. But whose?


This is one of those books where it’s hard for me to write up a review for.  Not because I didn’t enjoy the book, but more so for the fact that to me this book was just more so-so.
I haven’t read anything by the author in the past, so it might just be that I wasn’t able to connect with the way that the author writes their stories, but with this book at times it felt like the story just seemed to be stretched out past the point where I was still enjoying it.
I did enjoy the whole premise of this book though! I thought that the author writing the story using this plotline was a very smart move on their part.  I haven’t actually read another book like this before, so it was really great to read something new.  The characters were really well written as well.  They were described to an amazing extent; you were not left wondering anything about them in the slightest.
I will read from this author in the future just because I do believe in giving authors a second chance when it comes to reading their stories.  I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys a story that isn’t about the sex or romance, but is about friendship.
