Publisher's Summary

A Stories from the Shore Book

Jonathan Vallen has never felt good enough. A gentle musician who loves to garden, he’s woefully unsuited to running Vallen Industries, the family business. When his father hires a hotshot executive, Marco Pellegrini, to save the company, Jonathan moves away and leaves his humiliation behind. A year later and 40 pounds lighter, Jonathan runs into Marco on an LGBT cruise. Marco doesn’t recognize him, the sparks fly, and Jonathan pretends to be someone else for the week - Jonah Rutledge - someone good enough to be loved.

Marco Pellegrini has always been driven. He rose from poverty to the pinnacle of business success, and he’ll do anything to protect his reputation - including hiding his bisexuality. Having saved Vallen Industries, he’s weary of the rat race and ready for a more meaningful life. When Marco meets his soul mate for that new life - Jonah Rutledge - on an LGBT cruise, he prepares to stop hiding and start living.

Back on land, the romance crashes when Marco discovers his perfect man is not only a lie but the son of his boss, Frederick Vallen. Jonathan resolves to win Marco back, but Frederick takes vengeful action. Jonathan and Marco must battle their own fears as well as Frederick’s challenge to get to the future that awaits them on the horizon.

Good cruise romance

Jonathan wanted to be a musician and garden. But after his mother's death, his father wanted to groom him to take over the family business. He brings in big shot Marco to save the company and teach Jonathan all he knows.
Jonathan finally stands up to his father with the help of his cousin Anthony and moves to the shore in the house his mother left. A year later after a major makeover and loss of 40 pounds, Anthony convinces him to go on a gay cruise where he runs into Marco. Anthony gives the name Jonah and Jonathon goes along with it, but things get out of hand.

This is a cute story. It's flirty and fun. It is also very formulaic Boss/coworker, gay cruise type romance There's a lot going on. I never really connected to Marco or Jonathan but I loved Anthony! I hope he gets a story next!
