Blurb: A summer fling is an ideal cure for a broken heart. But when it’s with your best friend, things get complicated.

When Adam is dumped by his boyfriend, a week away at a beach resort seems like a great opportunity to get over his ex. Sun, sea, and no-strings sex will be just the boost he needs to move on with his life.

Adam’s best friend, Finn, agrees to accompany him at short notice. Finn’s had a crush on Adam for years, but is determined to put his feelings aside and be the perfect wingman in Adam’s time of crisis.

A spontaneous threesome with another guy forces Adam and Finn to confront their attraction to each other. Having a holiday fling together wasn’t part of the plan, and as their trip heats up, they soon realise that one night of fun won’t be enough for either of them.

The passion might be scorching, but their hearts and friendship are on the line. If their romance is going to survive the flight home, they have to be honest about what they want.


Review:  This book is about two friends who finally get to a place in their lives where they’re able to get together. One is totally oblivious to the attraction. The other has been pining away for years. Adam is dumped by his much older fiancee. If Adam’s honest he knows they weren’t doing well but being cheated on hurts none the less. They were supposed to go to a resort together but instead he takes his best friend Finn. Finn takes Adam in when he shows up heartbroken on his doorstep without hesitation The plan for the trip is that Adam will get back in the saddle so to speak by hooking up. They meet a group of guys right away so it seems like their plan will work perfectly until a threesome makes them realize how much chemistry is between them. It’s undeniable and sets their friendship on a new course. They decide to just hook up while on vacation but feelings develop and things get complicated. The guys don’t communicate about their feelings either.

I liked this book. There is really good chemistry between the MCs. It helps that they have been friends for years so there’s that built in history and familiarity new couples don’t always have. Finn is very supportive of Adam. He appreciates him for who he is. He’s kept his feelings to himself for years because he didn’t want to lose Adam as a friend. He made it no secret how he felt about Adam’s ex. Adam’s rebound hook up ends up being the love story he’s always wanted. Finn hasn’t ever really been in a relationship because he knew Adam was the one for him. No one else was ever going to compare. This is a cute story with TONS of sex. It’s steamy and there are feelings involved so it’s not too much. Just know what you’re picking up with this book. A best friends to lovers story where the MCs spend a lot of time getting busy on vacation. Then fall in love!
