Synopsis: 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 band mate 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 Bassinger’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.
 This book was so funny. I could tell just by the title it would be funny.I rated it 3.5 stars because there were some parts of the book  that I thought could have been better. I am going to start off with the parts I really enjoyed reading.
As I said before, it was a funny book. I really enjoyed the characters, and the relationship that build up between Justin and Jack. However, I thought the relationship blossomed extremely fast. They went from plane mates, to a quickie in the airport bathroom, to in love and married.
I really enjoy reading M/M romance,but this book was not what I hoped for when I read the synopsis. Of course there were some things in the book that I loved reading  because I kept turning the pages. The flow, and the humor of the book is what kept me turning pages. I was also hoping I would find more in the book, but it just wasn't there.

While the idea was there, it was just missing something. I kept picking the book back up because I thought maybe there was more. I wish it could have been longer. I like the romance between Justin and Jack, but it all happened too fast. I didn't really understand the whole pop star band idea. Yeah, it was a good idea to throw in there...I just wish the author would have gave more details.

Over all this book was okay, but it just wasn't for me. I would like to read other books by this author because I love the writing style.

*I received this book from Riptide Publishing  on NetGalley.*
