Husband Material (London Calling #2) by Alexis Hall

Husband Material, the much anticipated sequel to Boyfriend Material, is finally here!

From the blurb:

One (very real) husband

Nowhere near perfect but desperately trying his best

In Husband Material, Luc and Oliver met, pretended to fall in love, fell in love for real, dealt with heartbreak and disappointment and family and friends…and somehow figured out a way to make it work. Now it seems like everyone around them is getting married, and Luc’s feeling the social pressure to propose. But it’ll take more than four weddings, a funeral, and a bowl full of special curry to get these two from I don’t know what I’m doing to I do.

Good thing Oliver is such perfect Husband Material.

This Summer 2022, you’re invited to the event(s) of the season.

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

Luc and Oliver have been together for two years and are happily living together, yet not quite living together. I mean Luc still has his flat because we all know what a commitment phobe he is, but he rarely spends any time there. Everything important to him is at Oliver's place up to and including Oliver himself. I enjoyed getting to catch up with these two. Opposites attract is certainly a saying meant for them. I mean Luc is a sleep in until noon on a Saturday person, while by the time he's awake Oliver has worked out at the gym, had breakfast, and already gotten on with half his day. Luc is my kind of people.

Ironically, there were a fair bit of weddings in Husband Material to attend. All of which lead to Luc and Oliver thinking about their own ideas of future nuptials. Lets just say they are pretty opposite in this regard as well. Of course we still get the regular cast of side characters. There is another fun adventure spent in Priyas van. Oliver is still the most polite and thoughtful boyfriend in the world. Luc is still an anxiety ridden mess, though somewhat less than before. I hate to admit I was a tad disappointed in the ending. I felt it warranted an epilogue if this was the last we see of our beloved Luc and Oliver. Otherwise as per usual with this author, the writing is flawless and written extremely well. If you enjoyed Boyfriend Material I am positive Husband Material will be a winner for you as well.

  1. I think something has gone wrong with this page... It's impossible to read the review as the type appears to be gray on a black background. I've tried in both Chrome and Firefox browsers.
