Doug is a cheese pizza kind of guy. A honeymoon cruise around the Caribbean is the most adventurous thing he’s ever done. Going on that honeymoon alone is unthinkable, but here he is, with a luxury suite and a broken heart.
Tripp is a hopeless romantic. He’s in a sinking relationship that’s been taking on water for months. He’d throw in the towel if he had one, but he’s naked and locked out of his room.
No one should be on a cruise alone, and Tripp has a simple solution: he and Doug will pretend to be husbands and enjoy everything a week of sea and sun has to offer. But as the days and nights heat up, can a cheese pizza kind of guy be brave enough to give love a second chance?
Honeymoon Sweet by Allison Temple is just that…so sweet. This was a sweet, make you smile read for me.
Doug is a man of simple tastes, give him a cheese pizza, chicken, or a Cesar salad and he’s a happy man. Doug has had a rough few years, he lost his dad and was then left at the altar. After his mom and sisters convince the shy man to go on his honeymoon alone, Doug finds himself on a cruise he’d planned to the last detail…without a husband.
Tripp is a hopeless romantic in a hopeless relationship. Going on a cruise with his very distracted by work boyfriend is a last-ditch attempt to salvage a doomed relationship. Day one finds them fighting and Tripp accidentally locked out of their room in the buff. This is how Doug finds the attractive man. Doug doesn’t know what to do, but he can’t leave the man looking so distraught. Lending a helping hand to the beautiful stranger begins a friendship that leads to them being fake husbands. What these two men find is that their fake relationship is the best relationship either has ever had. But the cruise comes to an end and reality is waiting for them at the dock. Now they have to walk away and decide whether to settle or reach for something more.
This is my first book by this author but won’t be my last. This really was the sweetest book. Doug is so gentle and lovable. Tripp is fun, charismatic, and longs for real love. I found myself aching for Doug and then cheering his bravery. And Tripp…I just loved him from the moment we meet him. These two are so different on the outside, but what they have in common is the stuff you build a life on. I love a good “fake it till you make it” book and this is a great one. It’s full of heart and has a coming into your own vibe that I love. I read this and went looking for more from this author on Amazon. It just made me feel good and that’s so important right now. I highly recommend this one.
