When Jeremiah Lincoln, an ER nurse, invites his old classmate Brady Laurens to his pool party after treating Brady’s finger at the hospital, he never expects the hot, sexy Hollywood star to attend. To his surprise, not only does Brady show, but the recently out and proud actor makes it clear he’s interested in getting Jeremiah alone for some hot loving.

After a steamy night together, Brady invites him for a beach getaway up north. But when it’s all over, will Brady be willing to give Jeremiah more than summer?

If you need a cute little pick-me-up story, this one works.

Jeremiah is a nurse co-hosting a summer party at his too expensive rental. When an old friend from school, Brady, shows up, his roommate is surprised that an actor is at their party. It seems like there was some mutual ogling going on back in middle school and now they have the chance to see if the spark between them will ignite.

The story was cute and short and pretty much what you’d expect from an actor with money… the cliche of the fast car, trips away to wine country, paparazzi. As much as the story moved at a quick pace, I didn’t really feel anything between the MC’s. By the end, they still hadn’t figured out each other well enough to know how the other felt. It was forced, in my opinion, which made the ending a little meh for me. 3 Stars.

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
