It felt like reading the first third of a book, the romance seems very underdeveloped and cut off before it got interesing.

A Home for the Holidays Charity Novella

The man of your dreams could be sitting right next to you.

Former boy band member Justin Hayes isn’t looking for a man. He just wants a quiet, scandal-free Christmas at home in Chicago, out of the public eye. But his best friend and bandmate is subjecting everyone to his destination wedding, and Justin can’t dodge the “best man” bullet. All he has to do is get to the island on time, survive the reunion, and get Chuck to the altar with as little drama as possible. What could possibly go wrong?

Jack Basinger’s own plans for a quiet Christmas have been dashed by the summons to his daughter’s hasty wedding with a man Jack has hardly met. On the bumpy flight to the island, he finds himself comforting a nervous — and extremely attractive — young man. One hasty sexual encounter in an airport bathroom later, they both feel much better. No one ever has to know, after all.

Now Justin and Jack must find a way to explore their attraction, despite the distractions of disapproving family members, unexpected announcements, an impromptu concert, and an island paradise that proves there’s no place like home.

    Kurzmeinung: It felt like reading the first third of a book, the romance seems very underdeveloped and cut off before it got interesing.
    Too much stuff, too like time

    Famous ex boy band member Justin is on his way to the destination wedding of his friend and band mate Chuck. On the flight he meets a sexy older guy, Jack, which whom he has airport bathroom sex.
    At the bachelor party he finds out Jack is in fact the father of the bride. But Justin finds Jack is actually a pretty nice guy and would be interested in some more. It's just that Justin is still in the closet and trying to avoid publicity at all costs.

    This book confused me a bit. It felt like a read the first third of a book and then suddenly jumped to the happy ever after epilogue. There seems to be a lot missing.

    It seems to me the book needed a lot more space to be what it was trying to be. I did like Justin, I thought the romance with Jack was pretty hot, but it was really underdeveloped. Or maybe just cut short. We get the first two days with them, that's all. There isn't really all that much emotional stuff going on between them yet (no insta-love, thank god), even though you can see first signs, but at that point we're already done.

    And in that short book there are also a lot of other themes cramped in. Justin being in the closet, because famous, Jacks issues with his kids (whatever those are, exactly), fear of heights, a wedding, secret pregnancy, friend bonding...
    I felt it could have been quite good, if there where space to actually explore all that properly, instead of just squeeze everything in.
    It cut into the romance time, which felt rather underdone for it, it left the characters rather flat, since there was no time to develop so many people, and it made the book feel like a clusterfuck, since too much stuff was going on simultaneous.
