Fame and fortune was at his fingertips, but Cory Evan, half of the pop duo 2ICE, pronounced twice, felt something was missing in his life.  There was emptiness inside him that none of the groupies he’s bedded over the past two years have ever come close to filling up. Late one night when Corey found himself feeling lost and alone he ended up seeking comfort in his best friend and singing partner Ian Coltraine’s hotel room leaving his latest nameless conquest asleep in his bed.  That night opened Corey’s eyes to the feelings he always had for his best friend, but convincing Ian he wouldn’t be just another thoughtless one night stand won’t be easy.

Ian has loved Corey almost from the moment he met him and watching him bed the many female groupies they encountered during their tour has been heartbreaking.  When Corey finally turned his attention towards him, Ian wouldn’t let himself believe Corey’s feelings were real.  To guard his heart he approached Corey’s newfound attention with caution.

Beautiful Disaster was a beautiful and passionate love story.  Corey was looking for someone to love him, the real him, but he looked in all the wrong places.  Ian was that person who saw him for whom he was and wanted him because he was Corey and not because he was famous.  Both of these guys were passionate and caring and I felt their anguish and despair as they tried to come to terms with their feelings for each other. Ian always knew it was Corey whom he loved; it took  Corey time to realize his feeling for Ian were much deeper than just friendship. Corey always knew he cared for Ian but he never let himself think of a man in a romantic way. Acknowledging their feelings for each other did not make things any easier between these two guys. Ian and Corey’s relationship was an emotional rollercoaster ride and I enjoyed every single moment of it.  For readers looking for love, romance and angst I Joyfully Recommend Beautiful Disaster.
