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.

The blurb is on point – so no need to rehash.

Tommy is heartbroken when, minutes before exchanging their vows, his fiance instead tells him he can’t go through with the marriage. Devastated, his best friend Grayson and his family close ranks and make sure Tommy is protected as much as possible.

I love a good jilted-at-the-altar romance, and we get the bonus of a friends to lovers slow burn added. Told in a dual third-person POV, the reader gets to experience Tommy’s heartbreak and the way Grayson helps him heal and look forward to a new future.

Some pacing issues kept this from being a home run for me, but overall I enjoyed the story. Sweet, friends-to-lovers romance with a bit of angst brought by the evil Ex, and a lovely HEA.

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I'm happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand. I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I'm in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA! My biggest no-no's are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
