When Hunter and Alex (formally Shawn) are given the vacation of a lifetime, it’s a chance for them to pay attention to romance and get out of the path of danger. The tiny Caribbean island of Saba is gorgeous, the first to have marriage equality, and the Sabans are the nicest people on earth.
There’s lots of rum poolside for relaxing and a room with a mirror on the ceiling for passion. Hot karaoke nights, cold beer, and new friends.
Their new friends Orfeo and Max, and Max’s sister Talisha, share a troubling secret. Alex and Hunter want to help. As a hurricane bears down on them, a dead body surfaces, and a purple backpack loaded with stolen jewels leads a pair of dangerous men to the island.
Alex would rather poke his own eyes out with a pointy stick than call on his old enemy Nick Truman for help; he’d also do anything to keep Hunter out of danger. But even his nemesis can’t reach them now.
Okay, I’m going to get the not so good stuff out of the way. And then gush about how much I enjoyed the rest.
I read and loved the first book, but it was a few yrs ago? It’s seems like that anyway, lots of bks in between. This one, seems to have a different writing style, one that took me a minute to get into the rhythm of. I don’t remember the last one flip from POV to POV, also this one seemed choppy?
The other big thing, if I remember correctly, we left the other one with a HFN, but kinda of a cliffy, and this one picked up much later on in the lives. So I found myself confused on where we were and what was going on. We had flashbacks to help, but again, took a minute to get that rhythm.
Now, once I found my footing, I really enjoyed this fast passed, high energy, boy can these two please catch a break novel.
You’ve several stories going on at one time so pay attention, from the issue with bar ppl recognizing boy blue, to the mistake of taking pills and liquor and ending up in the hospital.
Now we’ve got this amazing holiday thrown in our laps but of course it can’t be all drinks and sex on the beach, not with these two!
I love how Hunter and Alex, no matter what know how each other are feeling, where each other are, can read each others minds.
The secondary cast plays a big role and shouldn’t be misjudge or discounted, that will be the readers downfall in figuring out the who do it.
The HEA we get is hard fought, but well executed.
