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, 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.

Husband Material is a sequel to novel, Boyfriend Material. You should really read Boyfriend Material
first, to get to know the characters and understand their backstory. Basically, in the first book, two
opposites, Luc and Oliver meet, pretend to fall in love, then really fall in love. The first novel deals with
them working through the ups and downs of their relationships, their kooky friends, and how they relate
to the LBGTQ+ community. The characters are wonderful and their relationship is adorable. You will be
rooting for them throughout the book. In Husband Material, you find Luc and Oliver dealing with their
relationship two years later. The flow of this story is a bit different, it takes you through 4 different
events, three weddings and a funeral. We see how Luc and Oliver grow and change throughout the
different life events as they contemplate where their relationship is going and how they connect
differently to the LBGTQ+ community. This sequel is a charming and humorous look at love and its
many obstacles. Submitted by Diane Osman. ( )

It was a sweet, charming and sometimes witty offering. I liked the characters of Luc and Oliver in Boyfriend Material so was really looking forward to seeing what they were up to in Husband Material and if a wedding was actually going to take place. I thought at first that Luc was going to propose to satisfy social pressures, but then I began to hope he would just bite the bullet and do it. It was a good enough read but it just didn't, for some reason that I can't define, produce the same feelings as the first book. It does confirm that Luc and Oliver have definitely found their "happily ever after" with one another and this story was the perfect way to send them off. ( )

This was an incredibly satisfying sequel. I devoured it in a day and was so happy to get it early from my local independent bookstore. I loved the Four Weddings and a Funeral plot structure and the reappearance of characters from the first book. It all felt very natural and not just let's stick all these characters in as fan service. I loved that I was surprised by some of the choices (the funeral! the bridge scene!) and I loved that these characters didn't completely backslide to the messes they were in book one. You could tell they had spent two years growing with each other and, like every one, still had work to do to figure out their relationship. ( )

Luc and Oliver are back in this amazingly funny sequel, and so are all the characters we know and love from Boyfriend Material!

Luc is chosen as the maid of honor for Bridget's wedding, so he's responsible for all the planning. Right at the beginning of the story, he runs into his ex-boyfriend Miles, who sold him out to the media, and gets introduced to Miles' new fiancé, JoJo. The happy couple invite Luc to their wedding. Amidst all of this wedding planning, Luc and Oliver's own relationship is put to the test.

All characters are just as chaotic and loveable as before. Luc still works at the Dung Beetle Charity and his relationship to his co-workers remains as funny as ever. I still laugh every time Luc tries and fails to deliver a joke to Alex Twaddle.

Luc's friend group might be even more quirky than his co-workers and they cause just as much chaos as you would expect them to.

I really liked how realistically Luc's and Oliver's relationship was portrayed. Their story isn't just rainbows and butterflies, instead they have ups and downs like every other couple. While it was uncomfortable to read about them fighting because I love seeing them happy together, it also felt necessary.

Just like in "Boyfriend Material," many important topics are mentioned and both Luc and Oliver have to learn a few lessons about themselves and their relationship. It also raises the question of whether marriage is the right option for every couple, which I think is an important topic.

I did think the story was a tad too long but I didn't really mind because I love reading about these characters.

Everyone who loved "Boyfriend Material" should definitely check out this sequel because it is just as good! ( )
