Blurb

A sexy, passionate, utterly addictive standalone MM romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely!

Every bartender should follow one simple rule—don’t go home with the customers.

That’s been easy for me to stick to, until the night a cocky, confident, and sinfully charming hockey star walks into my bar. This sexy athlete is too hard to resist, especially when he makes it clear how much he wants the “sarcastic, witty, hot AF” guy behind the bar—also known as me.

Still, I’m not keen on breaking my own rules since I know where that can lead—no place good.

But when that man makes his case with one bone-searing kiss on the streets of London, I throw resistance out the window.

What could go wrong with a hot, dirty, no-strings-attached fling before he leaves town in five days?

Trouble is, soon our nights together lead to days, to long conversations, to getting to know each other, and to something I never expected—falling ridiculously hard for a man who’s getting on a plane to America when I live a world away.

My life is here. His is there. And no amount of falling or feeling will change that one big problem.

Warning: contains hot hotel sex, loads of dirty talk, PDA all over London, and two sexy, witty, charming alpha heroes…

Review

Yay! I’d enjoyed this author before so when I saw she wrote an m/m AND that it was full cast as an audiobook… YES!

It’s terribly cute. The competitiveness is adorable. The “Brit v American” is minimal but cute when it happens. They each have great supporting cast friends and family. The HEA is super sweet and sappy and wonderful! I worry when M/F authors write their first or only M/M that the sex will be weird, but it was awesome!

Now, for the not as awesome. There was next to no hockey  I was waiting and waiting for Dean to go to a game and have Fitz explain it or at least watch one on tv but… no. Instead, they literally have sex in almost every chapter. I mean, yes, it was hot. Yes, I’m a fan. But, in general, I need some interaction, romance that isn’t based on the sex. I had to skim. Sigh. I know.

Now for the mega awesome! The audio is a full cast which means not only is each character voiced separately but they keep the character – not just flip chapters back and forth – and actual females do female roles etc! LOL. Ok, well, it was still amazing. Like an old time radio show with an ensemble 

Highly recommended!
