How can heartbreak turn into happily ever after?
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 best honeymoon ever, dark clouds descend in the form of Tommy’s ex and a sting from paradise that could ruin everything.
This book is part of the Dreamspun Desire series. They can be read as standalone. This is a cute, fast, easy to read best friends to lovers book. There is little to no angst but we get a bit of drama. Not too bad though. I had a bit of a time relating the people at the beginning but once I got going I was pulled into the story.
The book opens with Tommy getting ready to wed. He planned it with very fine detail. Only to be left at the altar by his fiance Xavier. When this happens his best friend Grayson and Grayson’s son Petey. They have known each other for a better part of 10 years. So when the cancellation of the wedding happens Grayson tell Tommy to go on the honeymoon as a vacation anyway. Grayson has been there for Tommy and Tommy for Grayson so it was nothing to ask his friend to go with him so he wasn’t alone.
They now have a week in paradise and have both been secretly having feelings for each other. Now, what I don’t get is why if you had feelings for someone would you go hiding them. I get not wanting to ruin a friendship, though. Grayson was with someone else at the time their friendship started. I felt at this point their relationship started kind of fast. I mean he was getting married and he was stood up, but still getting married.
I liked Johan and boy oh boy did Petey steal the show. I enjoyed the way he put Xavier in his place. I also loved his aunt Ginny. She was a barracuda and did what she could to help her nephew. I loved the paradise of where they went on vacation. It was refreshing to read a book where the main characters know each other so well. They know what they need and understand each other so well so well.
I know I may sound contradictory, but I did genuinely like the story I just felt somethings were a bit rushed. I would have liked to have a little bit more of them.
