The Story

HUSBAND MATERIAL synopsis from the publisher:


Wanted: One (very real) husband Nowhere near perfect but desperately trying his best

In BOYFRIEND 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. 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.

My Review: Husband Material

Get your invitation to this wildly, funny, ridiculously delightful conclusion to Luc and Oliver’s story.

With a nod to Four Weddings and a Funeral, which I now need to go find on Netflix, in Hall’s second book in London calling, Luc and Oliver hit the wedding scene. From posh elite weddings to Luc’s ex’s wedding, we watch Luc and Oliver navigate this path to matrimony, which may or may not be their idea of happily ever.

A perfect ending, HUSBAND MATERIAL is filled with laugh out loud moments, like the workplace jokes between Luc and his coworkers 😂 and the heart breaking ones too when Luc and Oliver begin to have second thoughts 😭, and the raw emotions they (and subsequently we) feel as we draw closer to the end.

And that ending!!! 🤯🤯🤯

I did not expect that at all. Though, I have to be honest, it took me a good moment to absorb what happened. But after I got over my initial shock, it feels like the perfect kind of completion to Luc and Oliver’s love story.

Happy Reading ~ Cece
