Overworked cubicle jockey Adam Byron wants to attend Oregon Coast Pride in style but the price of a room at Buchanan House, a popular gay retreat on the central coast, is beyond his budget. So he won’t miss out, he advertises online for someone to share expenses. Corporate drone Silas Grant responds to Adam’s ad, and the two get to know each other via texts before meeting at the coast. They agree on a no-pressure roommate arrangement, yet once they meet face-to-face, their attraction is undeniable. Desire might simmer well beyond Pride weekend, no matter how hard Adam and Silas try to live up to their noncommitment pact.
This is a cute little story that features Buchanan House as an amazing vacation destination. I really enjoyed getting to see the B&B in action in this story and a tiny glimpse at one of the characters I enjoyed in the first book in this series.
Silas and Adam are sweet together. You don’t get to know them much but you definitely get enough of a sense about them to want to see them together. I like how Silas rushes to fix his mistake and acts rash to ensure Adam doesn’t write him off completely.
There’s a very happy for now at the end of this story that makes me hopeful these two will make it long term. I so hope they show up in future Buchanan House stories so we can catch up with them. And if not, that’s ok too since I can imagine them being very happy together and figuring out how to be in a relationship together.
Charley Descoteaux has always heard voices. She was relieved to learn they were fictional characters, and started writing when they insisted daydreaming just wasn’t good enough. In exchange, they’ve agreed to let her sleep once in a while. Charley grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area during a drought, and found her true home in the soggy Pacific Northwest. She has survived earthquakes, tornadoes, and floods, but couldn’t make it through one day without stories.
