A summer fling is an ideal cure for a broken heart. But when it’s with your best friend, things get complicated.

When Adam is dumped by his boyfriend, a week away at a beach resort seems like a great opportunity to get over his ex. Sun, sea, and no-strings sex will be just the boost he needs to move on with his life.

Adam’s best friend, Finn, agrees to accompany him at short notice. Finn’s had a crush on Adam for years, but is determined to put his feelings aside and be the perfect wingman in Adam’s time of crisis.

A spontaneous threesome with another guy forces Adam and Finn to confront their attraction to each other. Having a holiday fling together wasn’t part of the plan, and as their trip heats up, they soon realise that one night of fun won’t be enough for either of them.

The passion might be scorching, but their hearts and friendship are on the line. If their romance is going to survive the flight home, they have to be honest about what they want.

Finn has had a crush on Adam forever and had always thought one day they’d hook up. Until Adam got a serious boyfriend. But then Drew dumps Adam and now they are going on a beach vacation together. Should Finn act on his attraction to Adam or should he play the wingman and help him get over Drew? It’s always a hard decision to do the right thing.

“What was the worst that could happen? I was already mad about him. I’d had a slow burn crush for years and after the last couple of days, my heart was a goner whether or not we carried on hooking up this week. A time-limited fling was better than nothing, better than never getting to kiss him again.”

I’m such a sucker for best friends to lovers stories. This is a sweet but mega sexy book with a vacation getaway to Spain to heat things up. What happens on vacation stays on vacation, right? Adam has just been dumped and replaced by his fiancé Drew and needs a way to get over his heartache. Taking Finn on his already planned vacation helps push these two to face an attraction that’s always been there. I was sucked into their adventures pretty quickly and all of the sexual tension kept me engaged. What’s cute is you get both guys’ point of view so you KNOW they both are feeling the sexual vibes that each other is giving off. Even the guys they meet see it! This is a great story to pick you up if you’re looking for hot romance to lose yourself in.

I kind of love all of Jay Northcote’s books. They just make me happy and feel good about my escape into the romance. The kind of books that are just fun to read.

Author Bio

Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England. He comes from a family of writers, but always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed him by. He spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.

One day, Jay decided to try and write a short story—just to see if he could—and found it rather addictive. He hasn’t stopped writing since.

Jay writes contemporary romance about men who fall in love with other men. He has five books published by Dreamspinner Press, and also self-publishes under the imprint Jaybird Press. Many of his books are now available as audiobooks.

Jay is transgender and was formerly known as she/her.
