The holidays are a time for second chances.

Warren Blessing lost his wife (two years ago), and his kids decide he’s been alone too long. They send him on a holiday singles cruise so he can meet someone new.

On the flight from Chicago to Miami, he sits next to an attractive man, but when the flight’s over, he doesn’t think he’ll see him again.

Fletcher Hammond is a professional mystery shopper for vacation destinations and travel. After a split from his unfaithful fiancé, he’s embarking on a singles cruise. He meets a lovely gentleman on the flight, whose conversation and cocktails help Fletcher through his fear of takeoffs, but he doesn’t expect to see him again.

As if by fate, a meeting in the ship’s dining room renews their mutual attraction. But can they build a relationship with distance and baggage working against them? Or will they part ways when they return to port?

This was a sweet, romantic read. It is a story about two men that have suffered different types of loss only to come to accept that there may still be a chance for happiness. This is only a short story and it is based between the day after Christmas till after New Years. So it could be called a Christmas love story. Emjay Haze did a great job on this book. It was definitely a light hearted read that puts you in the feel good spirits just in time for Christmas.

Warren lost his wife to cancer two years ago. He has not dated anyone since but his children have decided that it is time for him to find someone again and be happy. They booked him a singles cruise in hopes that he will meet someone. At first Warren is reculant to go on the cruise. Even when he got on the plane to take him to Miami. But that was made easier for him when he was upgraded to first class and was seated next to a very handsome man.

The man in question is a guy named Fletcher. Fletcher works for a company that has him traveling and writing reviews about cruises, airlines, hotels, and such. So of course he cannot tell anyone what he does. When he meets a man named Warren on the plane, he wishes he would have gotten to know him better. But after finding his ex cheating on him, Fletcher is not sure he is ready to get back into the dating scene again just yet.

What happens when these two men run into each other again on the cruise? Will they each find someone of the cruise or will they end up together? Or maybe alone? What will happen when the cruise is over?

This was a great read. I really enjoyed it. Like I said a feel good read.

Galley copy of Warren’s Peace provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
