Blurb: After years of domestic partnership, Jory Harcourt and Sam Kage are finally going to make it official in their home state of Illinois. It’s been a long and rocky road, and nothing—not disasters at work, not the weather, not a possible stalker, not even getting beat up and having to attend the ceremony looking like he just got mugged—will make Jory wait one more day to make an honest man of the love of his life.

Should be a piece of cake, right?


Review: Jory and Sam are one of my all-time favorite couples. Sam is the epitome of the ultimate alpha male, and Jory is the unapologetic power bottom. Seriously, what is not to love about that little love affair? This is the 8th book in the Matter of Time series and our guys have been together over ten years, they are settled, they are parents, and Jory is still getting into trouble. And Sam is still equally ready to rip his hair out to protect the love of his life and whip his ass for constantly being in the middle of dangerous situation. LOVE IT!

Jory and Sam were married in Canada in an earlier book, but now that same sex marriage is permitted in their state, they want to make it legal there, as well. Of course, that’s extremely romantic, but completely not in the cards for being without incident if Jory and Sam are involved. I can go months without reading about these two guys and instantly fall right back into everything I love about them. I need not go back and refresh my memory because Mary Calmes has a way with her writing that keeps the reader vested in the characters and I easily slip back into my Matter of Time mode.

What I love most about this particular couple is that nothing comes easy, but their love is rock solid. The heat factor between them is off the charts and the family dynamics are real, tangible, and heartfelt. I think I can safely speak for most fans of this series when I say that this is the kind of couple we want to read about, this is the kind of couple that keeps us coming back for more, and the scenarios are new and refreshing. I am a fan for life, and if Ms. Calmes decides to write another installment, then I will be jumping right back on the bandwagon.

Overall Impression: I loved it

*I purchased my own, personal copy of this book for review.*
