The blurb:

“Exchange student Drew Clarke should be happy. With a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel all over Australia he shouldn’t have any worries. But when his straight roommate, who he has a crush on, kisses Drew then freaks...he's left without his only friend. 

Alone during the holidays and in a foreign country, Drew finds himself lonely. When he meets surfing lifeguard, Scott, he thinks he’s found a distraction in six feet of easy on the eyes male. But when Scott wants to keep Drew in the closet, Drew’s had enough. 

Will his sexy friend and co-worker Chris be able to pull off a miracle for Drew and make his holiday happy?”

My thoughts:

Nikka Michaels tells good stories and writes good books. Nikka Michaels also has the most amazing talent for telling amazing, fully formed, short stories.

Short stories frequently leave me feeling cheated. All too often it feels as if something is missing. Maybe there wasn’t enough back story, maybe the characters remained one dimensional or maybe the ending was rushed or too abrupt. Not so with this author. She manages to get it all in thirty short pages; multi-dimensional, funny and interesting characters, a believable back story, a very hot encounter and to then crown it all with a satisfying finale. I’ll be damned if I understand how she does it, but she manages it time and again.

Drew was nerdy and all the more charming for it. He’d no idea he might be attractive and undervalued himself constantly, but he also had a rather silly sense of humour and a big heart.

I have to admit I fell a little bit in love with Chris. When the ‘full of fun party-animal’ turned out to be a sensitive, trustworthy and loyal friend my heart melted, as did Drew’s.
The dialogue in this story sparkled and Chris and Drew together were hot as hell. I couldn’t think of a better read if you’re looking for something short, sweet, funny, and hot as hell.
