BLURB: Liam Young has a problem – he’s booked a romantic holiday to Rio de Janeiro months ago, but when he breaks up with his boyfriend, all his plans fall apart. Not only is his dream holiday slipping through his fingers, but Liam is sick and tired of getting his heart broken.
Blaine Reed has a solution that can save Liam’s plans. Recently divorced, Blaine needs a break, and a couple of stress-free weeks in Rio with a sexy guy like Liam sound like heaven.
Liam and Blaine hit it off right from the start, becoming good friends even before they’ve left London. Despite their efforts to ignore the simmering attraction between them, it boils over when they end up sharing a room in one of the most romantic cities in the world.
Being together in Rio is easy, and it’s exactly what Liam needs – no feelings, no drama, nobody getting hurt.
Until someone does.
When the holiday bubble bursts, it’s up to them to find a way to be together outside of Rio’s seductive magic.
A Sip of Rio is exactly what the title suggests. If you think of Rio (and I mean your positive thoughts), you immediately associate it with FUN, sunshine, laughter, amazing scenery, gorgeous people, dancing, and something exotic, even magical. This story provides all that, and adds some sweet love to the mix. We get a light, entertaining story with two great guys who have fun together with lots of laughter, dancing and a little bit of angsty conflict just for good measure. No matter how unusual the plot is, we all know that life creates the most amazing situations ever, and you’ll know how true this is when you read the afterword, which adds an extra layer of awesome to this book. I really like the structure of the plot, and the build-up of Blaine and Liam’s relationship has a great pace. The story is told from both of their point of views and it gives a better chance for the reader to really feel what’s going on.
If you are looking for a few hours of vacation, getting away from your everyday life, this is a perfect read for you. A Sip of Rio is a true feel-good story, which will take you away to an unforgettable place, make you meet two interesting characters, who have awesome adventures together, getting to know each other, discovering Rio and themselves along the way. The chemistry between the MCs is wonderful. They are really hot and sweet together and have a great amount of fun, sizzling sexy-time. You can feel the writer’s love for this place and the amount of background knowledge she has, paints a real lifelike image of the Rio and its magical atmosphere. Enjoy!
