Just like the original FOXE DEN: A Holiday Collection, there is no mystery to solve in this novella. Skyler Foxe is a high school English teacher, now out and proud. He’s “Mr. Foxe” to his students and just plain “Skyler” to his posse of friends and his boyfriend, high school football coach Keith Fletcher. In FOXE DEN 2: Summer Vacation, Skyler and Keith offer a Beach Party for the Gay-Straight Alliance kids; Two gay teens have an intimate moment in their own story; Skyler’s friend Mike de Guzman experiences Skyler’s favorite gay bar, Trixx; And finally Skyler and Keith go on a backpacking trip. This is a book of little extras, what the characters are up to when we don’t see them between the pages of a full novel. They have so many stories to tell that a full novel cannot contain them!
This novella is Volume 5.5 and falls directly between DESERT FOXE and CRAZY LIKE A FOXE.
This short novella is so much fun with different POV from Skyler, Rick and Alex, and Mike de Guzman. I love it when Haley writes from other POV in addition to Skyler. Here we get some nice fun with a beach day, some sweet feels with Rick and Alex’s first time, a side-splittingly funny night with Sidney’s boyfriend, Mike, navigating Trixx, and a cute look into Keith and Skyler’s backpacking hike adventure.
I absolutely LOVE Joel Leslie’s narration of this series! Haley’s Skyler Foxe stories have so many characters and it really allows Joel to spotlight his talent. He brings each character to life. It boggles my mind how seemingly effortlessly Joel is able to keep so many voices not only separate but completely distinct.
Absolutely worth the listen!
