The Boys of Bliss 1
When his fiancé leaves him at the altar, Andrew Wellman runs straight to Bliss.
After spending the last year of his life busting his butt on the new resort off the south coast of Florida, all Andrew has to do is stick the landing—a gorgeous wedding and a honeymoon to blow the socks—and everything else—off his groom-to-be. But when he finds his fiancé buried deep not in wedding preparations but in his best friend, Andrew calls the whole thing off and cashes in that plane ticket for a solo honeymoon.
Rock star Cord Fabien’s whole life blew apart when his band broke up.
Now, he owes his label a solo album, but all he wants to do at the new gay resort run by the mysterious billionaire Adrien Bliss and is hide from the paparazzi and lick his wounds. But when one sad interior designer catches his eye, Cord finds the inspiration to make beautiful music again.
Two men, completely adrift, find in each other the strength to pursue their passions. But Bliss can’t last forever, and the lives they’ve left behind are waiting to shatter a romance that bloomed in paradise.
its very classically a debut novel.
the start and finish were very heavily talk not show however it was a nice story about two men who were hurt by past relationship getting together in a beautiful paradise. with some great side characters I'd like to see more of, and most will. an pushy rich old guy who wants everyone happy (tho he seemed to be written like old old and then it turns out he's only 50...). the setting was lovely and a great place for the rest of the series.
the characters where fun to read about. I liked seeing Andrew learn to accept himself and his achievements for what they are, even if you could tell half way through that everything was going to work out perfectly for them and with a comment above it'll show that will most likely be the theme of the series.
3.5 stars, low angst, sex and a loving relationship at the end. I look forward to more from the author and the series.
Special Release Excerpt
He leaned against me, taking a swig of his water and staring out at the moon, hanging over the ocean like a giant silver coin. “It’s really perfect for a honeymoon, isn’t it?” He smelled of the resort soap, jasmine and sea salt, and the natural tang of manly sweat. It wasn’t something I’d ever thought of as sexy before, but on him, sitting there on the beach, it really was.
I kissed the top of his head and rested my cheek against his hair. “It is. Your honeymoon’s gonna be the best when you have it for real. Maybe your husband’ll rent the penthouse and keep you here a month. Nothing but sun and sea and a giant heart-shaped bed.”
He chuckled at that, swallowing his bite of sandwich before answering. “There are no heart-shaped beds anywhere in this resort. This isn’t the eighties.”
“Heart-shaped hot tub?”
“Now those, we have,” he agreed, and turned to look up at me, pupils enormous in the dark. “I don’t need that, though. As long as he’s here, and not in my apartment, fucking Ian.”
“Sweetheart, I wouldn’t fuck Ian with someone else’s dick,” I promised, on the assumption that Ian was the best friend. I might have been offering to take him on a honeymoon, but I wasn’t sure anymore. The conversation had gone around in a circle, and all I knew was that I wanted to take the sadness out of his eyes.
Apparently it worked, since he giggled, shoulders shaking and eyes lit with mirth. “What about me?”
I grinned as I leaned forward and gave him a peck on the lips. “Not planning on needing anything but my own for you.”
When he gave me a dreamy smile, I leaned in again and took his mouth, wrapping one hand around the back of his neck and pressing in. He gave a tiny whimper and clung to me, fingers wrapped tight around my arms.
When I pulled back, he stayed there, eyes closed and lips parted, breath coming in short pants. “I’m going to need you to go ahead and prove that.”
