Flamboyant book café owner Luca Moretti and geeky doctor Gus Hansen have been together for six years when the Supreme Court ruling makes same-sex marriage legal in all states. On June 26, 2015, Gus gets down on one knee and Luca screams yes.
On their wedding day, shortly before the ceremony, Luca’s mother explodes in anger, calling him a freak. The reason? He’s wearing a white veil, sprinkled with crystals.
Their relationship has been strained for a long time, and her words trigger traumatic memories. Instead of walking down the aisle, Luca runs.
Away from his mother. Away from Gus.
Gus counts down the minutes when Luca’s mother comes knocking. He realizes something’s wrong, but when he goes to talk to Luca, his husband-to-be is nowhere to be found.
Can Gus find Luca in time and manage to convince him to come back and get married?

What did the reviewers think?
This is a story about unconditional love. How it holds us up when ignorance tries to tear it down. It’s about the strength of love and the power of acceptance. This is a lovely and romantic story!
I really enjoyed Ms. Iris’ voice and writing style. I would love to see more stories by her because I would gladly read them. I’d especially love to see a full length novel because I think her voice will shine without the constraints put on a short story.
Nell Iris has given us a very sweet happy read. This is the perfect story for a Friday night with a glass of wine after a long week at work. It is a Happily Ever After that at the end of the book makes you feel warm and fuzzy. I would recommend this book if you are looking for something light and happy.
