Title: Will & Patrick Meet the Mob
Author: Leta Blake, Alice Griffiths
Why you should read this book: Fifth book and the truth is out, love is in the air!
Summary from Goodreads:
Patrick has finally accepted that he’s in love with Will, but his newfound determination to do something about that runs up against his father-in-law’s mobster plans. Though just what those plans are have as yet to be determined. As far as Will and Patrick can tell, they consist of blowing through town, wreaking small havoc, and turning the Patterson family’s lives on end.
Will must face the truth about his family before he can fully come to terms with his feelings for Patrick. And Patrick has to decide if this whackadoodle world is something he truly wants to be part of forever.
This is what love looks like, Patrick. You end up with no doughnuts and so-called “toy” pistols pointed at your head.
We left the 4th book with a cliffhanger nobody believed because of course it couldn’t happen but still it was surprising and intriguing. Tony is back and he wants to be sure Will and Patrick are in love. Jokes on him because they are obliviously in love with each other and the only people that don’t know it are just the two of them. That’s frustrating!
Patrick has accepted his overflowing feelings for our Will and he is suffering like he hasn’t suffered before. Love is hard and if you think it’s one sided it’s harder. Patrick doesn’t want a divorce anymore because being with Will those months has been the best experience in his entire life. He didn’t know he was capable of these deep feelings; he wasn’t ready to need someone so much it hurts. Patrick, my dear all-you-can-eat muffin, not one person is ever ready to being deeply in love, it just happens and you can’t reset your heart.
It’s an expression that makes Patrick’s heart do all the acrobatics it’s started performing since he met Will in Vegas: the wacky flip-flop, the dive and soar, and the wild burst in his chest. Maybe this isn’t love. Maybe he just needs to see a cardiologist.
Will, on his part, is in denial because he is also sure his love in not reciprocated. He knows he is feeling something very different for Patrick, caring about him more than usual, thinking about him all the time, being impatient to meet him after work to talk and do dirty stuff because with Patrick he is more himself than he’s ever been, than he’s ever allowed himself to be without being afraid of being judged. Ryan ruined him so much and I can tell the whole city is secretly in a Ryan anti-fanclub! Come on, that guy is the worst!
He squeezes Will’s hand again, and his heart aches when Will’s lips tilt up in a smile just for him.
Patrick is seriously a fantastic character, flaws and everything. He has curly auburn hair (my favorite), he is a bottomless pit when it comes to food, it’s such a joy reading about him eating or thinking about food (he has a second trashy breakfast everyday, who wouldn’t love him?), he is an amazing doctor and he is passionate about what he cares about. I love Patrick and wanted to see him happy from the very first book, he deserved all that’s good in the world and for him it’s food and Will. Patrick, 35 years old and in love for the first time in his life! Such a cutie!
“Wait, why’ve you kidnapped me?”
“Because I’m an evil doctor with mind-control powers and I’m going to steal your super high-level spy secrets by breaking down your mental barriers through forcing you to orgasm against your will.”
The sex, oh my goodness, so descriptive, I loved every scene! It was cheesy, extreme, kinky, dirty, and it was great! Those two could be at it for hours, like rabbits! Lucky them! Really, lucky them! Everything about their intimate encounters is hot and steamy and I’m glad Will finally found someone who enjoys doing all kinds of stuff without judging. Can you believe it that Ryan blamed Will for wanting to try stuff in bed? He called him ugly words, disgusting among other things, because he wanted to enjoy their sex life? Unbelievable, my hate for Ryan knows no boundaries!
“What? Of course I’ve had friends. I have colleagues, and in college there was a girl I didn’t hate.”
I love how Jenny is Patrick’s new best friend in this new frozen hell of a town. He is not used to having friends and he can’t talk about Will stuff with Will, he needed a confidante! He found it in Jenny and her scream machine of a baby, Dylan. Patrick cares about her a lot and they share food together. Patrick sharing his food? This is real love! I can’t stop saying how much I love Patrick and his interactions with everyone in town; he surely brought some spice to that cold gossipy city! He is also an active member of the town’s gossip app in which it’s written every dirty secret about its inhabitants.
Patrick is going to create a phone app called “You’re amazing because Patrick likes you” and install it on Will and Jenny’s phones. It’ll send them regular alerts that read: Stop being stupid. You’re awesome. The amazing, world-renowned genius, Patrick McCloud, likes you. For the love of macaroni, that’s an endorsement almost no one gets. Be proud.
What happened at the end of the book was expected but I didn’t want to expect it so soon even if it’s not so soon since it’s the 5th book of 6. I don’t want this to end but I need to know my men are good and happy and I think sad and frustrating things are going to happen because it’s the last book but I want to confide in the fact that there is Happy Ending written in the title and trust in its truthiness. Don’t disappoint me!
“Well? What’s the number?”
“Ninety-eight. Calm your tits.”
Patrick comes out, arms crossed over his chest and his hair sticking up everywhere. “Calm my tits? Calm your tits.”
I love Patrick!!
Do I recommend it? Of course, it getting complicated and angsty, the best.
