The pair plan a quiet, intimate ceremony, to be witnessed by family and close friends from the FBI, SEAL Team Sixteen, and Troubleshooters, Incorporated, including Sam Starrett and Alyssa Locke. But the holiday season brings more to the happy couple than they expect.
A waterfall coming through their kitchen ceiling, a bat colony in the attic, old family tensions . . . even an international incident can’t dampen their spirits. But add to that a parade of unexpected guests, including a reporter looking for a scoop, an ex-lover hell-bent on causing trouble, and a dangerous stalker, and suddenly the wedding is poised to unravel in chaos.
But nothing will stop Jules and Robin from getting their happy ending, because along with a guest list featuring the most elite counterterrorism force in the world, they have their own secret weapon–true love.

Pretty bummed about it but I've had my first Did Not Finish with Suzanne Brockmann's All Through the Night. This was my first time reading Brockmann and by 70 pages in I just couldn't take it anymore. The writing in general was decent enough. The problem I had was that I basically read what amounted to a 70 page pro homosexuality PSA.
I have no problem with m/m relationships in books or real life and I do think it's sweet that Brockmann want's to support her son who is gay but the way the subject was presented had my hackles rising. Instead of presenting a m/m relationship that was positive and might sway some readers into being more accepting of the lifestyle this was purely someone's personal agenda being shoved down my throat with absolutely no finesse and with a huge dose of bitterness. I kept waiting for Brockmann to stop lecturing me and focus on just telling the romantic story between FBI agent Jules and his hunky actor fiance Robin but it just wasn't happening.
Maybe if I'd read the rest of the series first and was finally getting to read an anticipated happily ever after I might not have minded nearly as much but I kind of doubt that. This series seems to work for a lot of people but if it's anything like this book it is definitely not for me.

Have you ever read a book where you might agree with the subject but the way it's presented just puts you off?
