I really enjoyed this and the first book. The characters and plots are well developed. It's good to have some British LGBT fiction that I can relate to more.
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.
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.
Any additional comments?
So I did not read/listen to the first one. And I had no problem following along. Did a good job filling in the small time gaps and back story without bogging this one down.
Owen and Nathan has just watched two of there friends get married and two more get engaged. This is freaking Owen is freaking, wondering what the big deal is. And Nathan is saying why not us?
One night they decide to take the plunge. But as the months pass by Own gets more and more distant and Nathan get more and more concerned.
These two are fabulous together, not only with there story and wedding plans but with the other drama’s going on. The younger sister, mother and father. The sister’s girlfriend. The list continues.
That all helps keeps the story going and not too monotonous, just talking about wedding plans. Although, having said that I did feel like, real what else could possibly go wrong for this pair at one point.
The narrator, once again did a great job and kept the story lively, even when I think at certain points, reading it, it wouldn’t have been.
I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review by Crystals May reviewers
