A spur-of-the-moment vacation was supposed to jolt Cameron Douglas out of his funk, but it appears he only traded locations. It was a chance meeting with a handsome stranger that changed everything. Brandon stirs Cameron’s interest and his heart, but will the mysterious man reveal his true identity before their vacation in paradise is over?
Sometimes life in the spotlight was a heavy weight to bear for Brandon Bullet. He never knew if men were interested in him as a person or just enamored with his rock star status – until he meets Cameron Douglas. It wasn’t often that Brandon shared a connection with someone who wasn’t aware of his notoriety. He’s determined to keep his identity a secret while the two of them get to know each other and before someone blows his cover.
Cameron is on vacation trying to get over an ex in Rio. He meets a “mysterious stranger” at a bar and they have an instant connection. One thing leads to another leads to hot sex back in the cabana! Eventually Cameron learns his “stranger” is a very famous rock star named Brandon Bullet (though Cameron isn’t familiar with the band) and the two face a decision over what happens next.
This is a short story with a promise of more to come. So, with that in mind, and a HUGE GRAIN OF SALT, I give you this review:
I liked it! Sure, there was SO MUCH that was a bit (ahem) unbelievable, but it was FUN! I loved the idea of a hard rockin’ bunch of gay guys with tender hearts finding love on the beach in Rio. (I also kinda love this trope – the secret rich guy who sweeps the plain Joe off his feet…YUM!)
Cameron and Brandon also have unique chemistry in that both are a bit “alpha” and I like it when authors shake up those preconceptions. I also liked that being gay wasn’t “a thing” and that his being famous wasn’t really “a thing”. Instead it was two guys figuring out how their lives could mesh in a seemingly impossible circumstance. (Plus the smexy times were HOT!)
So… if you’re willing to suspend your disbelief and just have fun – give this one a go and look for more in the future.
