Book Blurb

Forest ranger Rex has never been with a man, but his overwhelming feelings toward his best friend are driving him to distraction. After catching Paul in an intimate moment, he flees, but determined to find a way to get his friend in his bed.

Paul is a ladies’ man from way back, always making jokes, never serious about anything but his job as a fire fighter. Yet after many years of friendship, he’s surprised to find himself watching Rex cross a room and imagining him naked, under him. But does he really want to make love to a man? Or will he make a fool of himself?

A 1Night Stand in the beautiful Caribbean may hold the answer to both their questions.

Book Review

Like the other 1Night Stand stories, this one is short, hot, and is the consequence of just a touch of Madam Eve's uncanny magical abilities in bringing couples together who either have no idea they really belong together, or want to have a partner but don’t know where to start. In this case, we have two men who are best friends, both think the other is straight, and both have developed a huge crush on the other. Neither wants to risk their friendship, so they do nothing.

Until one of them has enough and takes the initiative. Not in opening up, oh no, that would be too easy. Instead, Paul, the lighter-hearted of the two, decides to go for a one-night stand with a man who looks like Rex (that is the brief to Madame Eve), to see what it's like to be with a man, and to get Rex out of his system.

Meanwhile, Rex has been wondering what it would be like to be with Paul, and, finding his application on the computer, sends one to Madame Eve as well, requesting Paul. Rex hasn't been with a man before either, so he isn't too sure, But he does know he cannot go on wondering what it might be like.

Well, as you can imagine, the sparks fly when these two guys meet on an isolated tropical island with nobody around. Misunderstandings abound, emotions flare, and when they finally manage to get away from their friendship idea and hit the sack – hot, hot, hot. The ending is definitely a "happy for now", because both have homophobic families and a lot of issues to sort out, but I am willing to bet, with chemistry like that, they'll make it work. If you like the other books in this series, if you enjoy gay for you books, and if you want to see two friends turn into more, you might enjoy this short story.
