Thorne proposed to Riley. Riley accepted.
Thorne thought that was that. They’d take a nice trip, get married, and spend a week luxuriating in a five-star hotel with occasional excursions to fabulous restaurants.
Riley imagined a traditional wedding with all the trappings. With all their friends and family. At Christmas.
Thorne concedes reluctantly, and a flurry of wedding planning ensues. At the same time, Thorne is wrestling with a recalcitrant client, and Riley and his business partner, Susan, are consumed with renovations and planning for the opening of their bakery. Stress on top of stress makes both Riley and Thorne doubt their relationship, and a major misunderstanding nearly silences the wedding bells.
By the time they reach their happily ever after, they’re both going to deserve all the romance they’ve been dreaming of
Perfect Alignment is Book Three of the Thorne and Dash series and features the same MC as books one and two, Thornton Shipwell and Riley Dashwood. These books must be read in order as one picks up where the previous left off and each story plot builds on the previous.
In this installment of the Thorne & Dash series author Silvia Violet has shown us an important aspect of happily-ever after. It takes work and you can’t forget to romance your significant other, even if you are busy, even if life gets in the way, and especially when you love someone with all your heart. Never forget the romance. However, how you express it will be unique for each couple – but, always romance your partner. I think that is something we all can use a reminder on … as it is so easy to get stuck in habits of not spending time together or just taking time for yourselves to just be in love.
So, this story is much to do about wedding planning, miscommunications, not romancing your partner when life gets busy, and then learning to pick up the pieces and fix what’s broken when it all blows to hell. When we left book two in this series..Thorne proposed to Riley. Riley accepted. As usual after the proposal, the wedding planning begins or the couple runs off to elope. Well, it seems Thorne forgot this stage and totally checks out on the planning stage even though he assures Riley he can have the huge wedding that he has always wanted. Thorne takes the — “just do what you want Riley, I will love whatever you choose, here is an endless supply of money, have at it – I will see you at the alter” — needless to say, Riley feels neglected, unloved, and even considers calling it all off. Riley has to decide if he wants his ultimate fantasy or does he just want to have a perfect reality with Thorne and be happy.
“Fantasy is good,”— Thorne’s words vibrated against Riley’s lips—“ but reality is better, at least when I’m with you.”
Then, as if planning a Christmas wedding on his own isn’t enough — Riley is also in the middle of renovations and planning the opening of his bakery with his business partner, Susan.
If that isn’t enough to make you stressed out on behalf of Riley then I don’t know what is..all of these outside stressors are enough to almost bring this amazing couple to an end. One thing is for sure, if they are going to make it to their happily-ever after they have to start communicating, respecting, and romancing each other again – put what is important first.
I don’t want to tell you exactly what happens in this book. There is going to be times where your seriously going to want to hit Thorne over the head and other times where his sweetness will make you melt. These two have not forgotten how to turn up the heat and are still as combustible together in the bedroom, kitchen, livingroom… as that first night!
“ Keep your hands where they are. I’m controlling this. The only thing you need to do is feel and feel and feel and feel until you can’t stand it and you come so hard you see stars.”
5 stars to book 3 in the Thorne and Dash Series. A perfect conclusion to their story and a feel good HEA – lots of hotness and play in this installment. I recommend this series to all who love M/M Romance and want to watch two sexy men fall in love!
