Recently dumped by his ex, Mark Newland is struggling to reinvent himself in order to avoid the same situations he’s had with his previous relationships. Heading for a vacation in Bora Bora, he stumbled upon Hollywood’s most eligible gay bachelor Zane Whitlow. Zane had his own trouble of finding love without his fame getting in the way. Meeting Mark feels like a refreshing balm for him that made him abandon his usual approach in dating. Both guys have they own fear and insecurities – things that they have to overcome in order for their budding romance to work.
I read this story non-stop. I love Mark’s character because he’s totally relatable. Zane, though reminds me a bit of the gay version of “Julia Roberts of Notting Hill” came across as this very sincere yet vulnerable character. Hah! They have all the money in the world but they cannot buy happiness and all those blah blah. I know that the characters here are somehow (will be) part of upcoming series but I find the interchanging POV too much at times. Nevertheless, the story has great characters, over the top but convincing enough plot lines and an incredible conclusion. I think I may have to read the rest of the books in the series.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
