Troy Hastings is ready for the time of
his life. Tomorrow, he’s supposed to leave on a cruise with
his friends, and he plans to use the time to catch the man
he’s been lusting after for months. Instead, his apartment
building catches fire, leaving him clinging to the side of
the building wearing nothing but a towel. Fortunately, a
fireman rescues him. Unfortunately, he’s lost everything,
including his cruise tickets and all his clothing.
Jason Cooper is a little surprised by
his attraction to the sexy man in a towel he rescues from a
burning apartment building. He decides to go check on the
guy. When he finds out that Troy has nowhere to go, he
offers to let Troy stay at his place until his friends get
back from their vacation. Will a week be long enough for
Jason to show Troy how good things could be between them?
I really enjoyed Best Vacation
that Never Was. It starts out with some pretty
gripping action in the form of the fire at Troy’s apartment
building. After that, the story is by turns sweet, funny,
and hot. Troy, who’s a bit naïve on the love front—although
he doesn’t think so—is also very resilient and tough when he
needs to be, but with a hint of vulnerability that made me
want to hug him. Jason is protective and caring like a good
fireman should be. He’s also insecure at times, and a
little bit kinky. His determination to give Troy a lot of
fun experiences to replace the vacation he lost was sweet.
Troy and Jason really seemed made for each other, and I
couldn’t help rooting for them to get together. Best
Vacation that Never Was is a fun, hot, quick read
with some sweet emotion, making it a great mini-vacation
from the real world.
