Tony Porter and Marc Powell had lived in the same house for the past eight years, since their single parents moved in together.

Except all Marc can think about is having to spend the next two weeks with the young man he’s been in love with since he was sixteen.
Tony feels so torn about Marc coming home from college. He keeps telling himself that it’s wrong to feel this way about him. After all, in two weeks’ time they’ll be related. So when the two young men are thrown together to prepare for the wedding, tensions rise and discoveries are made.It’s going to be a very long two weeks, and a wedding that no one will ever forget.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
A Sweet Surprise!

There is one thing that makes me smile: a great love story. 

Confetti, Cake & Confessions is a confetti read of emotions coming from all directions within this loving family. A loving family many would liken to The Brady Bunch where two families come together, live together under one house, and love each other. The twist: the two eldest boys not only love each other, they fall in love with each other. The drama unfolds within the theater of wedding plans and talks about wedding cakes and confessions!

Marc had grown to love his non-stepmother and her children, even regarded her as a real mother and the children, his real siblings. He and Tony even bunked together for years in one room when the family merged. As they both grew older, Marc began to see Tony as more than just a loved younger sibling and this sets his emotions and thoughts all askew. How could he handle being in love with a younger man seen by both family and society as his stepbrother? Does this relationship fall under the TABOO category? Could he, should he, risk all for the love of Tony?

The story begins with Marc's and Tony's parents finally deciding to tie the knot after several years of living together. Marc comes home two weeks before the wedding date prepared to stand his ground on staying closeted and quiet about his feelings for Tony. 

Tony has a girlfriend now but unknown to his family, things are not really how they seem. Marc being back in the picture has only managed to strengthen his feelings for the older boy. How to make Marc see him as other than a brother but as a lover will take time, patience and a whole lot of heartbreak.

This was such a sweet, sweet romance and I just fell in love with Marc and Tony. (How many men have I fallen in love with lately I cannot count but I don't care) Theirs is a romance that edges on taboo and it scares Marc to the point of illogical thinking.

The struggles these two men face are quite hard and both have to make a decision that could either gain their family's acceptance or their total rejection. Both young men had a lot of growing to do in the next two weeks before the wedding and emotions are running raw. Caught center wthin the storm of wedding preparations and complications, their romance brews its own tornado of emotions. 

When Marc finally sings at the wedding, could he gets the pronouns right? 

Definitely a must read :D
