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.
I believe this is the last book in the series. I’m sad because I wanted more about this pair and their police work and their personal lives. However, if this is the last book, it’s fitting that after some intense and suspenseful moments these two men get to be happy together and say I do.
There isn’t much to say about Romantic Behavior. It is what it is – Andreas Ruffner and Darren Corliss are tying the knot. Families have their say, the event planning is the worst, they want to be married without real drama but they want to please their respective families as well. Pretty typical.
Darren’s family are always a delight. Andrea’s exes and kids are fine, but his mother really pissed me off – really!! – and his father was a non-entity. I could have done without them.
This is book #4 so you really do need to have read the others for this to be worthwhile. The title and the blurb say it all.
I let my fingertips dip beneath the back of his waistband, and he moaned into my kiss. Oh yeah. Forget the wedding. Forget work. Forget everything that wasn’t getting Darren to make those needy little sounds he made when he was turned on. He pushed me onto my back and straddled me.
I’m glad the guys are happy, but this was my least favourite book because I prefer action and police work more than wedding planning and family. The rest of the series is more police procedural/crime with romance somewhat in the background, building. This time romance is front and centre. If you’re interested in this terrific series the series is reviewed on here in its entirety. Someone else mentioned this would have been better as an epilogue to the last book and I tend to agree, but I guess it’s a (longer epilogue) HEA for the romantic reader. 3 Stars.
