Diamond magnate Sly Carson is headed to the Hotel Incognito, the premier resort for gay men in Las Vegas. He plans to take advantage of the time away from his homophobic father and have as much fun as possible. But the fun ends when he bumps into his old flame, Rory Klein.
Rory’s job working at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center has left him emotionally drained. A few days away was supposed to relax him, but there’s nothing relaxing about facing the man who broke his heart in college.
Twenty years have passed, but time doesn’t necessarily heal all wounds. This weekend could be their last chance to make things right, but a confession from Sly could ruin everything.
Whilst this is a very short audio book it has a huge number of plusses. Starting with Greg Boudreaux’s narration. He does a great job portraying Sly Carson and Rory Klein. He brings a good mature voice to what is a hot sexy story. I enjoyed the age appropriate nature of his narration, voicing the characters to perfection.
Sly Carson and Rory Klein knew each other in college and broke up for reasons we learn throughout the book. Them getting back together has a natural and realistic feel. The way that Ethan Stone allows you to gradually learn the characters and their relationship, both past and present is really well done.
The sex scenes were hot. Since the story is set in an all male gay resort, Incognito, in Vegas, you expect there to be plenty of skin and sex. Every scene felt like it added to the story and helped me understand Sly and Rory.
A true highlight of the story for me where some of the secondary characters. They are well written and a great deal of fun!
There were moments in this story where I felt it was predictable. But just as I would think that, something would change and the story would move slightly to the side. The only disappointments for me were the book length and the somewhat predictable nature of the story.
Ethan Stone has written a good, happy and enjoyable book. It was everything you want in a short audio story.
