Blurb

 What happens when business turns to pleasure?

Alec Compton’s dream job at a Wall Street investment firm is on the line if he can’t close a make-or-break takeover deal by the end of the year.
The buyer is none other than world-renowned billionaire and corporate raider Brant Linton, recently named one of the hottest and most eligible gay businessmen. Electricity crackles at their first meeting, and Alec’s thoughts drift far from business, despite his distaste for Brant’s business practices.

When Brant takes off early to spend Christmas with his sister’s family on the exclusive French Polynesian island of Taha’a, Alec has no choice but to follow if he wants to get Brant to sign on the dotted line. But Brant’s sister has forbidden him from conducting business during the holidays and Alec must masquerade as Brant’s boyfriend lest she find out what they’re really up to.
Then business turns into pleasure, but neither Brant nor Alec know whether the other is there for the deal, or for something more personal.

Review

 A cute Christmas story, even though a good deal of it was spent on a tropical island ☺ (yes, I am jealous).
Poor Alec, he has to broker a deal to get ahead in his career. He meets with Brant, a businessman, but before Alec can start the ball rolling, Brant leaves for his holiday on a Polynesian island. Alec follows and when he gets there, ends up having to pretend to be Brant’s boyfriend. The attraction that both men feel for each blossoms into something more.
The story is well written, the characters are fun, especially the kids. Both men discover each other and more about themselves, enough for them to rethink their priorities.
