Publisher's Summary

Paradise is just an illusion...

Or so Philip thinks as he vacations on exotic Anguilla. He should be celebrating the end of law school and the start of his successful career, but he's tired of living a lie for his family's sake. For just one night, he lets down his guard with two men he thinks he'll never see again.

He isn't the only one with secrets. For years, Cameron Drake has suppressed his need for dominance, afraid of hurting his lover, Mark Wilder. But when Cameron's hand meets Philip's ass, there's no more pretending. Mark can't face his conflicting feelings about the menage; does Cameron want more than Mark can give?

The three of them may have been perfect together but consequences follow them back to their real lives. Will their desire for another encounter shatter the illusions they've built to protect themselves or clear the obstacles to paradise?

Not worth even the 2.99 I paid.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

None of my MM romance-lovers friends.

Would you ever listen to anything by Hunter Raines again?

Not at this point.

What about James DeGrassi’s performance did you like?

Can't really say. I couldn't finish the book. I thought his voice and performance was satisfactory for what I did manage to read, though.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Annoyance - that I bought it and have to return it.

A little slow in the middle but good overall

I ended up really liking this book. It started out with a bang with the main characters on Holiday and I liked the way the author resolved the character conflicts and brought them back together where it all began.

My one complaint is that there is a big portion in the middle that drags the book down a little, keeping me from giving it the full five stars. While, intellectually, I understanded the need for the character development it does slow down the narrative a bit too much for my taste. Ultimately, though, I felt this was a very good outing for the author.

In regards to the narration I enjoyed the difference in characterization but felt that it did come across at times as a dry reading instead of a narrative performance. This was particularly the case for me in the middle of the book so it may have something to do with how I felt about the book's content in that section.
