When Jeremy, a high-profile photographer, agrees to take on Alan, the most popular male underwear model in the business, things are bound to develop. After their first freelance gig in Morocco, they spend a drunken night together. Was it more than a one-nighter for one of them?

Six months later they find themselves in Provincetown. While there, Alan meets Dylan, an adoring young fan who ends up getting the night of his life in Alan’s bedroom.

Unable to control his jealousy, Jeremy takes matters into his own hands and plays a risky game to get rid of Dylan. Will his plan backfire, destroying their working relationship as well as any hope for love? Or can Jeremy and Alan admit there was more to their one night stand than they are willing to admit?

Since it’s a short story and the blurb is spot on I’m not gonna say so much more since I don’t want to write any spoilers. I kind of like, okay really, really like this type of stories, and yet I was pleasantly surprised with the plot. No unnecessary angst or drama which I think is a good thing.
We didn’t get an inside to Alan’s feelings however Jeremy made me remember the feelings I felt when I was in a similar situation, probably most of us have one time or another. I admit though, I had to take a peek at the ending to brace myself for possible heartbreak.

I like the way the author wrote this story although a little bit of insight into Alan’s character would’ve been nice. The way the story was written made me supportive of Jeremy even though what he did was wrong. He knew it himself as well but his feelings for Alan were stronger. There isn’t much of sexy times

I really like what the author did with this story and I hope to read more from him in the future.

Reading, to me, is as close to an addiction as one can come without crossing the line… completely. I read a lot, and many different genres.
