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.

When Tommy Gordon plans the perfect wedding, of course he expects to have the best honeymoon as well.  Except Tommy gets left at the altar, and when he decides to take his best friend Grayson, and Grayson’s son Petey, on the trip instead, he expects the worst honeymoon ever.  Fate has plans of its own.  As Grayson and Tommy allow themselves to see each other as more than friends, and as the beauty and serenity of their surroundings begin to soothe the hurts, maybe this trip won’t be so bad after all.  Of course it isn’t that simple.  Just as the pair makes steps to take their relationship from friendship to more, Tommy’s ex reappears.

Andrew Grey takes these events and creates a sweet story.  With the island of Bonaire as a backdrop for most of the story, the two main characters face their own insecurities and the real difficulties of changing their relationship.  The challenges of dealing with Tommy’s ex, of including Grayson’s nine year old son and his own concerns about the budding romance, and then of handling a random medical issue that almost ends everything before it starts, could weigh the story down.  But in usual deft manner, Grey leads the reader through it all and still leaves that sense of romance and hope that seem to follow in all his books.  This is a great and fun summer read.
