“To my husband,” he toasts again, tapping his glass against Will’s. “The best mistake I ever made.”
“I thought you didn’t make mistakes.”
Title: Will & Patrick’s Happy Ending
Author: Leta Blake, Alice Griffiths
Why you should read this book: Last book and if you’ve loved it so far then you can’t miss it!
Summary from Goodreads:
Sure, Will and Patrick are in love now, but they weren’t when they got married in Vegas. For Patrick, that’s no problem, but Will can’t shake his doubts that a relationship started through coercion can ever become the real deal.
Since the Molinaro crime family has reversed their position on divorce, Will and Patrick have a chance to rectify their drunken mistake. But is divorce the solution?
How easy it is to take a body apart. And so incredibly difficult to put it back together.
Last frustrating book in this amazing serial. I am so happy I read a Leta Blake book that suggested me this amazing serial. With titles like those I couldn’t help myself; I had to read them! I was surprised by the depth of the themes thinking, at first, that this was going to be a really light read. It wasn’t entirely true. There was abuse, addiction, mental and physical illness: a cocktail of emotions involved that made me love these books even more.
Is the blue I see the same as the blue you see? Who cares if we both agree it’s blue?
The last part of the 5th book left us with Nonna calling Will telling him they could finally get a divorce. I knew Will didn’t want it, and I was even surer Patrick didn’t want it either. They are in love but they haven’t confessed it yet. Will then, is one doubtful human being and he decided to ask for advice to one of the characters I came to hate: Owen, his AA advisor and coworker. Owen doesn’t know a thing about Patrick and Will and he thought he had the right to put in Will’s head all kinds of doubts that made him make a terrible decision! He asked Patrick for a month long break to see if the love he felt was real and not another addiction. Owen, I wanted to punch him so much!! You made the both of them suffer! And I hated Will a little bit because he could’ve asked for different opinions because Owen is not God and his word is not absolute!
Patrick flails around, trying to get comfortable in her arms, but Jenny lacks in chest hair and her boobs keep getting in the way.
Oh my goodness, Will, you made the poor Patrick suffer so much I hated you, and I didn’t want to hate him because Will has been through a lot and it’s not entirely his fault he is surrounded by people who don’t know him as much as he thinks they do. My little Patrick, he was a mess, I wanted to cry and hug him and tell him everything was going to be okay. I wanted to tell him: Patrick, the book has the words Happy Ending in the title, trust me, everything is going to be just fine, give it time.
“Some people meet their life partner in college, others at church, others in a psych ward, others at a funeral. You don’t ask questions, William. You just be grateful you found the one.”
Will and Patrick aren’t together and they are miserable. Owen was wrong and I hated him so much for it! At least his unwanted advice made Will talk to someone who knew more about love and didn’t think everything has to be connected to his addiction. Oh, you love doughnuts? Maybe it’s an addiction because you are an addict. Oh, you love your Nonna? Maybe it’s an addiction, you know, because you are an addict!! Come on, Owen, give up, go home!
“This has definitely crossed over into gay ‘girl talk,’ Jax. You might want to switch the topic to sports so you can reassert your heterosexuality. Or go prove it with Jenny.”
The Wake Up married serial are one hell of a journey through feelings. Patrick, or as Jenny calls him His Highness the Jerkface, doesn’t think he can love because he closed that possibility a long time ago when the last time he loved someone that person made his life a living hell. Will thought he loved Ryan and wanted to built a life with him. He was delusional and he didn’t see their relationship for what it truly was: unhealthy and fake! That wasn’t love, that was pure abuse.
As the title suggests, there is a Happy Ending and is a perfect one. I loved everything about these books. I will miss Patrick with all my heart. I think we could’ve been the best of friends; we could be socially awkward together and eat like there’s no tomorrow. I will also miss Will, his kinks and his growth, his chest hair and good heart. I think I find chest hair attractive now, all thanks to Patrick and his endless praises of Will’s beautiful blond chest hair.
He misses Patrick’s noises of gastronomically induced joy.
I don’t know what else to say, I didn’t really spoil the book because the title says what happens, it’s not my fault. There are so many shades of the story I’m not telling you, so many ways these books capture your heart. I was in pain, my heart was in pieces, then I laughed so much, I got hungry and a little bit horny, I wanted to cuddle a horse, eat a mac n joe and be part of Will and Patrick’s crazy new lovely life!
Do I recommend it? Of course, perfect ending for a perfect love story.
