He brainstorms his escape, until reality crashes down and he discovers he’s bunking with Raudel in the last available bedroom at the lakeside retreat.
Thrown together by the bridal party from hell, Chad and Raudel unite and attempt to survive Chad’s bridezilla sister, a crazy grandmother, an overbearing mother, and the search for the perfect chocolate fountain. Despite the little time they have together, they reconnect when unexpected discoveries come to light. Love may find a way amid the nuptial chaos, but it’s unlikely to be exactly the way they expect.
States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.
Review: Chad’s sister is getting married and has invited her best friend Raudel, the man Chad has avoided for years since an excruciatingly embarrassing episode, learning that he has to share a room with the man has him horrified until Ruadel lays all his cards on the table, now the pair just have to live through the crazy bridezilla from hell’s wedding.
This is a brilliant story of two men who have always secretly longed for each other reconnecting and clearing up misunderstandings to finally be together. Along the way they have to face a bride (Lindsey) who’s on the edge, a mother (Kate) who’s been driven to drink and a grandma who just doesn’t give a damn and speaks her mind.
I loved this story, besides having a cute love story between Chad and Raudel we have some laughs from watching a bride become unhinged, a mother coming apart at the seams and a delightfully wicked grandma who doesn’t pull her punches.
Chad and Raudel make a great couple once Chad gets over his embarrassment from the long not ever forgotten incident, they quickly make up for lost time and dive head first into their relationship, in fact so quickly that Lindsey enters the Wrath of bridezilla.
The connection between Chad and Raudel is solid and though they do move quickly it does feel right, it isn’t forced, and you can see how much they love each other… it does surprise in that respect but still feels right.
I recommend this to those who love funny lively stories, who adore stories where love smacks men on the head, who love great characters and a fantastic happy ending.
