how i met your fatherDisclaimer MaleTAGThe man of your dreams could be sitting right next to you. Former boy band member Justin Hayes isn’t looking for a man. He just wants a quiet, scandal-free Christmas at home in Chicago, out of the public eye. But his best friend and bandmate is subjecting everyone to his destination wedding, and Justin can’t dodge the “best man” bullet. All he has to do is get to the island on time, survive the reunion, and get Chuck to the altar with as little drama as possible. What could possibly go wrong?

Jack Bassinger’s own plans for a quiet Christmas have been dashed by the summons to his daughter’s hasty wedding with a man Jack has hardly met. On the bumpy flight to the island, he finds himself comforting a nervous—and extremely attractive—young man. One hasty sexual encounter in an airport bathroom later, they both feel much better. No one ever has to know, after all.

Now Justin and Jack must find a way to explore their attraction, despite the distractions of disapproving family members, unexpected announcements, an impromptu concert, and an island paradise that proves there’s no place like home.

I was looking through new M/M audibles over the holidays and this one popped up. It sounded cute so I bought it. And oh I’m glad I did. In the first two weeks of owning the audiobook, I listened to it three times. Yep. You read that. Three times.

It’s just so wonderfully fun. And funny. And not just the story. Russo does a super amazing with the voices. But it’s the characters and Justin’s (the protagonist) relationship with all of them that really throws it all over the top. Chuck’s secret. Justin’s secret. Jack’s secret. Not to mention the absolutely hilarious pop culture references that are dotted throughout.

It’s less than three hours long. I highly suggest downloading this audiobook and giving it a listen. It’s a whole lot of fun, sexiness, four former teen pop stars, and a May/December fling. Fantastic!

5 stars.
