Follow Will & Patrick in this final installment of the romantic-comedy serial, Wake Up Married, by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths!
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? Find out in this final installment of the much-beloved Wake up Married serial.
Episode 6 of 6 in the Wake Up Married serial.
Will leans back heavily in his desk chair and sweat pricks the back of his neck. A tight band squeezes his chest, but he manages to ask, “What do you mean we can get divorced? Did Frankie and his new bride call it quits?”
Eleanora’s throaty chuckle comes through the phone. “No, darling. They’re still madly in love for now. It’s Romeo Molinaro we have to thank for this piece of good fortune.”
Will frowns, mind scrambling through dozens of half-forgotten or never-known relatives.
“Zeno’s favorite nephew,” Eleanora prompts.
“Oh. Right.”
Zeno is the current boss of the Molinaro family, his father’s uncle, and a terrifying man.
“Unfortunate marriages are going around like the flu in this family. It seems Romeo got hitched to a fetching ragazza. Charming, beautiful, young—the usual. But, as it turns out, also a spy from the Korotayev crime family in New York.” Nonna clucks over the line. “Oh, men. Following the dictates of their little heads always leads to their downfall.”
Bright sunshine screams through the window of the room, ricocheting around and giving Will an instant headache. “If she’s a spy, why arrange a divorce? Why doesn’t Zeno just—” Will drags his finger over his throat even though Nonna can’t see him. “Off her?”
“How like your father!” Eleanora puffs her disapproval. “No, no, darling. That’s no solution. Besides, Romeo begged his father not to kill her. Apparently he’s still smitten. But don’t worry. There will be some other kind of recompense paid, I’m sure. William, the less we know about it all, the better.”
Will exhales slowly. He stands up, turns to the windows behind his desk, and adjusts the blinds, dimming the light. “Romeo’s still in love with her? But he’s going to divorce her anyway?”
“Presumably. Regardless, Zeno’s quote-unquote discovered a loophole in the Trust that smashes through the edict regarding love matches and divorces.”
“Dad knew about this the whole time he was in town, didn’t he? He was just messing with us.”
“We’ll never know for sure, darling. All I know is he told me about Romeo’s situation and Zeno’s solution this morning before his flight out. Regardless, the issue is resolved. You and your doctor are free to handle your marriage as you see fit and Good Works is safe.”
Will stomach knots hard, and he stares at the lines of light the closed blinds leave on his desk. “We could file for divorce immediately? Today?”
“You could. That is, if it’s still what you want to do.”

Just when things are looking up for Will & Patrick, Will's grandma delivers the news that they can get divorced and Will's doubts about their marriage return full-force.

This is the last installment for the Will & Patrick series and I was so sorry to see it end! It was such a rollercoaster ride and it brought me my favorite MC ever, Patrick. *cuddles Patrick* He is such a delight to read, sarcastic, fun, arrogant as all hell, but so protective and supportive of the persons he holds dear and loves. I liked Will, but his hot and cold routine as he made up his mind got old very fast, especially when it hurt my lovely Patrick. Really, when even Will's mom is in Patrick's corner, and if you've read the series, you know how big that is, and he keeps at it, well, I just wanted to slap him silly. Don't get me wrong, I loved them together, but I loved Patrick a whole lot more. So even if I'm happy they got their HEA, I would've liked it if Patrick hadn't had to go through all he did in this book to get it.

Anyway, even with that, I have to thank both Leta and Alice for such a fantastic read. From book 1 until this last one, the collaboration has been flawless and all the characters (but Ryan) were amazing and made the story come alive for me. 

This installment was a really good and engaging way to end the series and I for one know that I'll be reading it again very soon. Very recommendable!
