Randall Young has one duty as his sister’s “man of honor”: to ensure she has the best wedding ever. That includes an epic bachelorette pub crawl, leading him to Portland’s most popular gay bar… and into Hunter Mitchell’s well-muscled arms. A one-night stand with a sexy soldier is the perfect way to ditch that pesky V-card and get himself in the mood for a weekend of flowers, cake, and nuptials.
Hunter wants to blow off some steam before he stands up as his best friend’s best man. He's already married to his military career, not looking to settle down. He certainly doesn’t intend for the one guy he met (and, okay, got off with) in Oregon to be his counterpart in the wedding party. Or a virgin. Definitely wasn’t intending that. Luckily, they have the rest of the weekend for Hunter to show Randall what he's been missing.
The more they’re thrown together by the wedding, the more Randall and Hunter grow together outside the bedroom… which is dangerous because there’s a lot more than 2500 miles standing between them and a happily-ever-after. If they want a future beyond their wedding weekend hookup, both must find the courage to take a chance on love.

> > Judging a Book by it's Cover < <
Two very sharply dressed men in an intense and somewhat intimate pose. Scroll work gives it an antiqued or old-timey vibe. Title font is thin and not as strong as it should be. Synopsis triggers all of my "must read" buttons.

POV ~> Third Person
Shy virginal rocket scientist, Randall, meets hunky, assertive Army Sergeant, Hunter, at Randall's sister's bachelorette party during their stop at a predominantly gay club and is the man of honor. Hunter's in town to act as Best Man for his childhood best friend's upcoming nuptials. What they thought was a no-strings one-nighter ends up being more once they discover they are paired at the same wedding.
Both have their flaws, but they compliment one another wonderfully and FIT better than many other couples I've read lately. Their chemistry is tangible, but imperfect, making them more real and humanized. The secondary characters are fun, but Randall's sister sort of seems like a clueless ditz - completely unaware of the things going on around her.
Dialogue and interaction felt natural. The plot was dynamic and entertaining and the flow was incredibly smooth... it always amazes me how two people can team up to write something that reads as effortlessly smooth as this! Conflicts were addressed and resolved without predictability. The happy ending is provided in a flash-forward style conclusion.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to M/M fans. Brains and Brawn win!

When Randall and Hunter meet at a gay club and end up spending the night together, all they expected was a hot night of sex. They of course never expected to see each other again. Turns out they were the best man and man of honor at Randall's sister's wedding.
They at first play it cool, bit both enjoyed their night together and want more. They do spend more time together between the sheets, but I wish there was more relationship building. I realize neither of them expect anything to last the weekend, since Hunter is in the Army, stationed in Huntsville, Alabama; but Rand is contemplating a move to either Seattle or Huntsville. So I wanted more incentives for him to choose Huntsville other than the possibility of more hot sex. Though, he did want that job more, he was just hesitant about being gay and out in the Bible Belt.
Overall, I did enjoy this, and AA didn't disappoint in the sexual aspects of their relationship. Of course there is a sweet HEA, but like I mentioned, it was lacking in relationship development.
*ARC provided by authors for honest review.
Randall & Hunter meet just before the wedding weekend of Randall's sister. This is the chance for both of them to let off some steam before the major obligations that come from a family wedding. Only they will meet again and very soon....
Hunter cannot believe it when he sees that Randall is part of the wedding. What he thought was innocent now has some major issues. Can they continue in secret? Do they want to?
This was a short and sweet story. The characters both give you the feels. Touching, hot, and simple, this story touched onto a little bit of everything. Humor just made it more fun.
