My Thoughts 

Billed as The Birdcage meets The Wedding Date and after reading this, I agree, although I think James's mother, Grace, was a nightmare, even worse than Dianne Weist and Gene Hackman combined in The Birdcage. I despised her character - immensely and thoroughly. This is a good time to add that I applaud Mr. Grey's writing as he is obviously very gifted at making readers feel many emotions. 

Regarding readability - I had to step away from this at times because of Grace and her awfulness. But when I wasn't wishing violence on certain characters, I really really enjoyed reading this. The story flowed and felt realistic. 

Dragged to the Wedding is fun, and timely. It also makes you really think. If you’re anything like me, it will also infuriate you at parts. 


Thank you to Carina Adores / Harlequin and NetGalley for the DRC!


The Wedding Date meets The Birdcage in this laugh-out-loud gay romantic comedy from Andrew Grey 

He’s here to slay…but will he stay?  

James Petika is living the single gay life he always wanted. A police officer in Chicago, he has a good job, good friends—and he’s two thousand miles away from his family’s expectations. He also has a problem: he needs a date for his sister’s wedding in Missoula, Montana, but his family has no idea that he’s gay, and he’d like to keep it that way.

The solution? Daniel Bonafonte aka Lala Traviata, the queen of the Chicago drag scene. Lala is the real thing: she can sing, she can dance—and she can throw more shade than a solar eclipse. One drink and plenty of dishing later, Daniel agrees to help James out and be his incognito date to the wedding.

Daniel’s drag-diva skills are put to the test right away, with the bride’s ill-fitting wedding dress, a groom who’s a danger on the dance floor and more drama than auditions for a gay men's chorus. Faking this relationship—and ignoring the very real feelings developing between them—might just be the performance of their lives.
