Tommy Gordon is all set for happily ever after—until heartbreak strikes when his husband-to-be leaves him at the altar. In a bid for distraction, his best friend, Grayson Phillips, suggests he takes advantage of the luxury honeymoon anyway! But the last thing Tommy wants is to go alone, so he invites Grayson and his son, Petey, along. Beautiful Bonaire lends itself to romance, and along with close quarters, relaxing on the water, and a matchmaking kid, Tommy and Grayson soon find themselves closer than ever… and considering more, much to Grayson’s delight. But before they can plan the best honeymoon ever, dark clouds descend in the form of Tommy’s ex and a sting from paradise that could ruin everything.
Being left at the alter has got to suck. But that’s nothing when compared to the feeling of being deceived by the one you were supposed to marry. You almost have to feel for Tommy, especially when you find out what Xavier, the ex, does after the aborted wedding. Tommy handles it well, but then he has his best friend Grayson and Grayson’s nine-year-old son Petey (along with a loving mother, father, and aunt) in his corner.
Grayson convinces Tommy to go on the honeymoon trip to Bonaire in the Caribbean, despite the latter’s broken heart. The trip is already paid for, after all. Grayson and Petey go along to keep him company. While on this trip, Grayson reveals that he’s been in love with Tommy for years.
Andrew Grey does a wonderful job of describing the scenery of the island. If you didn’t know any better, you would almost swear you were there. Let’s be honest, who couldn’t fall in love, or acknowledge a love that has always been there, with a backdrop of a majestic Caribbean Island. It’s what happens after the vacation that can become the real problem. Which is precisely what Tommy, a natural-born planner and pessimist, worries about. Who can blame him, really. He’s just been ditched by one man he thought loved him and is about to completely alter the parameters of his friendship with Grayson.
Grayson is quite the opposite. He’s more of a go-with-the-flow kind of guy. Oddly, the balance each other.
This was an enjoyable read, filled with beautiful scenery, friends-to-lovers story, and just the right amount of drama to keep things interesting without going completely overboard.
