From EPIC Award winning author and multiple Lambda Finalist L.A. Witt comes the re-release of three hot contemporary novellas — Getting off the Ground, Infinity Pools, and On The List.
After being stood up at the altar, compulsive over-planner Elliott Chandler decides to turn his honeymoon on Oahu into a vacation for one. Fate puts a hitch in his plans, however, when the airport is snowed in and his flight is delayed.
In the terminal, the jilted groom catches the eye of another stranded traveler: the laidback and very sexy Derek Windsor. Derek breaks the ice and strikes up a conversation, and as the temperature drops outside, the heat between them rises. Pity they’re both going to different islands, but if their flight doesn’t get off the ground fast, Mr. Calm-and-Cool may just tempt Mr. Play-It-Safe into doing something reckless.
And that plane isn’t going anywhere any time soon…
3.5 of 5 Stars
This is a pretty fluffy, very sexy, low angst vacation read. I appreciate not having a lack of communication or miscommunication between characters when the time came to sort out what was happening between them.
Elliott and Derek are opposites. Elliott is a planner, almost obsessive with his need for control and organization. He has a backup plan for his backup plan. Spontaneity is not in his vocabulary. Derek is an impulsive adventure seeker. He lives by his own rules and is a self-proclaimed lifelong bachelor. While we don’t get much history on Elliott’s relationship that ends at the beginning of the story, he and his long-term partner had become comfortable and complacent but weren’t necessarily ready for the happily ever after. Derek helps Elliott forget his troubles and let loose while on his non-honeymoon. They have instant chemistry, both sexual and emotional. There’s not much more that happens in the three books…they meet in an airport in an unconventional way, they have fun together, they eventually figure out they want more than just a two-week fling and forge a long-distance relationship. There are a couple of hiccups along the way but that’s pretty much the whole story.
I liked the change in POV for the 3rd novella. I thought the little bit of angst introduced in this book was resolved way too quickly which makes me question the need for its introduction but I still liked the series.
About The Author
L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…
