Detective Andreas Ruffner is no fool—he’s found a man who loves him, puts up with him, and has stuck with him through hell and back, and it’s time to put a ring on it. Darren Corliss is the love of his life, and he wants the whole world to know it.

Now the fun part—the wedding!

Well, after the not-so-fun part of planning the wedding in between dealing with overbearing and impossible-to-please family members. With future mothers-in-law driving them both up a wall, the guest list growing out of control, and the wedding getting ever more complicated, Darren and Andreas have to wonder if they’re in over their heads.

But they’re going to make it to the altar if it kills them . . . and at this rate, it just might.

Look Inside


5✨s – After subjecting Andreas and Darren to atrocious bodily damage, heartbreaking personal pain, and extreme blue balls, these authors are finally allowing the intrepid detectives time for simple happiness. Or are they? These authors are mean; mean I tell you! Not professionally this time, but inopportune phone calls haven’t ceased, and hunting down vicious criminals becomes more appealing than wedding planners and in-laws. Whether they make it from engagement to altar is predictably unpredictable.

This has been an outstanding series from the start, with spine-tingling action and suspense I enjoyed immensely. Romance was always mostly in the background but grew within each episode, their near-symbiotic connection present in both partnerships, on and off the job. The personal aspect is allowed to bloom in this story, and seeing how attuned they are to one another is delightful. I highly recommend the series but mostly to readers who enjoy the action and law enforcement aspect, rather than those who prefer a higher level of romantic or erotic content. This final installment perfectly satisfied my romance demands and left me with plenty of happy feels.

About Cari Z.:
Cari Z was a bookworm as a child and remains one to this day. In an effort to combat her antisocial reading behavior, she did all sorts of crazy things, from competitive gymnastics to alligator wrestling (who even knew that was legal!) to finally joining the Peace Corps, which promptly sent her and her husband to the wilds of West Africa, stuck them in a hut, and said, “See ya!” She also started writing, because some things she just thought she could do better. She’s still climbing that ladder, but can’t stop herself from writing, or from sharing what she creates.

Cari enjoys a wide range of literary genres, from the classics (get ‘im, Ahab) to science fiction and fantasy of all types, to historical fiction and reference materials (no, seriously, there are so many great encyclopedias out there). She writes in a wide range of genres as well, but somehow 90% of what she produces ends up falling into the broad and exciting category of m/m erotica. There’s a sprinkling of f/m and f/f and even m/f/m in her repertoire, but her true love is man love. And there’s a lot of love to go around.

Cari has published short stories, novellas, and novels with numerous print and e-presses, and she also offers up a tremendous amount of free content on, under the name Carizabeth.

About L.A. Witt:
L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut . . .

    I could understand why Andreas was in no hurry to introduce Darren to his future monster-in-law. What a terrible person! Darren’s mother Jessica is nice, but likes being able to manage a situation. This book didn’t have life-threatening situations for the protagonists, just stressful ones. I knew they’d work it out, though. 🙂
