Author: Jay Northcote
Publisher: Jaybird Press
Characters: Nathan, Owen
Sub-Genre: Contemporary Romance, Series
Nathan wants to put a ring on it, but is Owen the marrying kind?
Two years on from their first date, Owen and Nathan are living together and life is good—except they’re not on the same page about marriage.
A traditionalist at heart, Nathan wants it all: the wedding, the vows, and a pair of matching rings. Owen, on the other hand, believes marriage is old-fashioned and unnecessary. They don’t need a wedding to prove their commitment to each other. Love should be enough on its own.
All it takes is one moment of weakness on a night out to force the issue. Owen finds himself engaged after a half-drunk proposal, and Nathan’s enthusiasm sweeps him along. But as the big day approaches, the mounting tension finally combusts.
If he’s going to save their relationship, Owen will need to decide once and for all if he’s truly the marrying kind.
I was very excited to read this book. I loved the first book, The Dating Game, and couldn’t wait to read the continuation of Nate and Owen’s story. Boy, was I not disappointed!!
The great thing about this story is the continued progression of Nathan and Owen’s story. The author writes these characters in such a well-written, heartfelt way, I couldn’t help but totally fall in love with both of them. Both men are humanly flawed and truly likeable people. It’s easy to see why they are so good together and why they truly belong with one another.
I thought the pacing of the story was perfectly written. I understood some of Owen’s fears, as well as, Nathan’s excitement over how fast and deep their relationship continues to grow. I thought each man’s fears were real and I liked how they ended up tackling these worries head-on, together as a true partnership.
I love this book. I love this couple. The Marrying Kind is a well-written, sexy read that will leave a big smile on your face. It’s a very easy book to recommend and I hope the author will write more about this amazing couple in the future!!
