Sexual Intensity: hot

Story Overview:
Blue: When my ex walks into the resort bar with his new husband on his arm, I want nothing more than to prove to him that I've moved on. Thankfully, the sexy stranger sitting next to me is more than willing to share a few kisses in the name of revenge. It gets even better when those scorching kisses turn into a night of fiery passion.

The only problem? Turns out the stranger's brother is marrying my sister later this week.

Tristan: I have one rule: no messing with the guests at my vineyard resort. Of course the one exception I make turns out to be the brother of the woman my brother's about to marry. Now we're stuck together for a week of wedding activities, and there's no avoiding the heat burning between us.

So fine, we make a deal: one week. One week to enjoy each other's bodies and get it out of our system. Once the bride and groom say I do and we become family, it'll all be over between us. Right?


Fair warning: Blue and Tristan's story contains smoking hot scenes of man parts touching, pee-in-pants descriptions of grannies cursing, and the sweet improbability of two strangers finding their happily ever after when they least expect it.

My Review:
Overall: 4.25
Performance: 4.5
Story: 4.0


This is the first book I've read by this author and I really liked it. On the surface, this is not a romance that should happen. Tristan isn't gay...at least not that he's ever admitted. Yes, he did a bit of experimentation in college, but then he met his wife, and then the interest in men was never there...until Blue.

Blue is at Tristan's vineyard for his brother's wedding. He immediately is drawn to Tristan, but doesn't understand how Tristan can be so new to all this, but yet so accepting and adventurous about it all. Note...I kind of loved that about Tristan. He really is a laidback guy who's up for anything.

The book was fun. The setting was incredible...hello, sexy vineyard. The dichotomy of both families being here was interesting, especially in the contrasts between Tristan's and Blue's acceptance. I loved the whole Marian clan and can see how this series is setting up so well. Note: the scenes that make up Tristan's 'coming out' were hilarious and unexpected. I kept laughing out loud. 

I liked this one and am immediately going to go grab book #2.
