So sweet, hot, funny and just plain wonderful!
I really loved Luci & Rhys! Such a unique take on the clueless best-friends to lovers trope. From mates and besties to married and confused? I loved the injected wit and cute cluelessness of both characters as they realize they are and have been in love with each other since they were teens. I enjoyed the dual POV and getting into each character’s head.
This story has humor, wit, love and care and a nice amount of sexy steam! I loved the camaraderie between these two from the start and their relationship shifts, evolves and grows throughout the story and I loved that there was no real “back and forth” silliness. The characters were honest with each other and their chemistry and care were always present.
I loved the big reveal and their viewing of the wedding album was just so beautiful. I can’t wait for more in this series and book 2 already has me hooked! Bring on Augie & Ambrose, I can’t wait!!

Chapter 3: Lucien “Luci” St. Amour
We fell silent as we realized the enormity of our situation. I closed my eyes, trying to remember the previous night. We had been joking about Rhys getting married in one of those quickie marriage chapels, laughing as we drank and looked online at the craziest ones in Vegas. It had seemed like a hilarious idea at the time when he suggested we go check it out in person.
The walk over sobered us up as Rhys confessed that he was only marrying Olivia because it was what he felt like he should do after being with her for so long. It intensified my selfish hope he would call off the wedding, that maybe I wouldn’t lose him to her. Thus, when he announced to the chapel receptionist that we were there to get married, I had played along out of curiosity.
Left alone to fill out our paperwork, I had asked him how far he was planning on taking the joke. I never expected to hear him say, “If I’m spending the rest of my life with only one person, I want it to be you, Luci. Marry me.”
The word “no” hadn’t even crossed my mind.
After filling out applications, they drove us to the Marriage License Bureau. Just like we had talked about at the hotel, Rhys sauntered down the aisle to an Elvis impersonator singing “Burning Love.” It had seemed like a funny joke, but the magnitude of the moment had hit me as we exchanged rings. Our first kiss as husbands awoke something within me that had been slumbering since that night when we were awkward teenagers experimenting with each other.
After that, it was like a dam had burst inside us both. We made out in the limo, making up for all the years we hadn’t kissed. I recalled celebrating with champagne in our room, giving us the boldness to strip each other in between nervous laughs, but we ended up losing our nerve in the face of being drunk off our asses. There was a conflicting sense of relief and disappointment that we hadn’t been intimate with each other. That’s when the reality hit me all over again that holy shit, we’re legally husbands.
