Jackson Carlisle has rotten luck with men and women, and after an especially bad situation, he takes a step back from romance. But with a two-week family reunion in Hawaii looming, his mom is determined to set him up with one of the sweet singles she knows would be perfect for him. A normal person would tell her no and be done with it. Instead, Jackson tells her he has a boyfriend. The only problem? He doesn’t.
Aaron Wilkes is an escort. He’s a little surprised when a friend’s girlfriend hires him to date her brother, but he’s had stranger jobs. Jackson is cute, and he thinks a fling with Aaron might be just the kind of no-strings-attached fun he needs to get over his dry spell. As they explore the islands together, their carefully laid plans begin to get away from them. Feelings aren’t supposed to come into play, but that shouldn’t be a problem. After all, you can’t fall in love in two weeks…
Super enjoyable installment in this new series featuring the Carlisle family.
I really enjoyed Dinner for One, so I was definitely looking forward to this, and it absolutely lived up to my expectations.
I loved the premise and the execution. Filled with humor, hot sex, and enough realism that I didn’t have to suspend disbelief to get through it, this absolutely hit the spot in all the right ways.
Note: There are time jumps in this: Eight Months Later, Two months later, One Month Later, Two weeks later, Four Months Later…but I honestly thought they worked very organically in the story and helped ease the somewhat insta-love aspect to give some time and perspective.
I am so in love with this family and the beautiful way they accept, without question or conversation, Jackson’s bisexuality.
I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series, Checking It Twice, which looks like it will feature one of the twins (Dorian) and a hot, but closeted, hockey player. Sign me up, please! Yum!
