Title: To Love and To Cherish Author: Addison Albright Series: Vows #3 Can be read as a standalone Release Date: November 12th 2016 Genre: Contemporary MM Romance
BLURB Will Nash find love again? Of course he will. Will he go about it in the usual manner? Now that’s another story entirely. Jilted by his fiancé two weeks before their wedding, Nash Marino’s outlook on life in general, and love in particular, is jaded. After months of couch-surfing, Nash is fed up. He’s sick and tired of his living conditions, worn out by the demands of his nursing job, and despairs of ever finding love again. In fact, he doesn’t think he’s capable of true love. Monogamy, commitment, companionship, and regular sex…that’s all he wants, and the sooner, the better. When Nash crosses paths with a like-minded man who’s also in need of a live-in nurse for a beloved relative, Nash figures all his problems are solved. Matters are complicated by a freak accident and amnesia. When Nash’s marriage of convenience scheme is muddied by notions of love after his memory reboot, will their plans go awry, or will Nash’s new outlook on life be just what the doctor ordered?

Nash is heartbroken and with good cause. Nash's prior engagement shattered and he's unbelievably sad. He goes through the whole"No love is good love," mentality in this story.
The complexity the author brings to Nash's character is truly brilliant. I thought how Addison was able to weave the layers of him together to be amazing. He's sad, then gets amnesia, thinks he's not sad, then remembers, and is sad again and has to move on. Just wow!
There's a lot to love in this story; from the suspense to the conflict to the characters and where it and they will end up. There's angst for sure in this story but it wasn't as gut wrenching and soul crushing as 'Til Death Do Us Part, in my opinion. Overall it's a lighter read but no less dramatic.
Addison Albright fleshed out terrific characters, crossed over story lines in a way that you don't have to read 'Til Death Do Us Part (though I recommend it) and she built on to an already fascinating fictional world.
Addison Albright lives in the middle of the USA with three peculiar cats. Her stories are gay (sometimes erotic) romance, and tend to be sweet man-love in contemporary settings. Her education includes a BS in Education with a major in Mathematics and a minor in Chemistry. Addison loves spending time with her family, reading, popcorn, boating, french fries, "open window weather," cats, math, and anything chocolate. She loves to read pretty much anything and everything, anytime and anywhere. Links: Website | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads
