Description:

Stuart Jenner’s job is high stress, high stakes, and everything he’s strived for. So why, when the apex of his career is within reach, does he stumble? At his doctor’s insistence, he books a privately chartered yacht to sail around the Whitsundays for two weeks of sun, surf, and sex. When his friend-with-benefits bails on him at the last minute, Stuart decides to go alone.

Foster Knight left the rat race behind six years ago, bought a yacht, and now calls the Great Barrier Reef his home. Sailing tourists around tropical waters is all in a day’s work, and he’s never been happier. When his next client arrives alone, the two-week charter will be the most private job he’s ever had.

Foster can see how stressed and exhausted Stuart is, and he promises him extensive rest and relaxation. Stuart slowly realises his original plan for two weeks of sun, surf, and sex might not be lost yet. Confined to a yacht, isolated by aqua-coloured oceans and the sweltering sun, Stuart and Foster are about to find out just how hot the tropics can get.

Review:

I decided to change things up and go for a more recent book this time. I've read quite a few of N.R. Walker's books and enjoy them more often than not, and this one sounded quite good.

This starts with Stuart leaving his stressful role at a big company to go on annual leave for two weeks on a yacht travelling the Whitsundays. The guy he was supposed to be going with pulls out the night before they're set to leave and so he ends up alone but for the captain of the boat. Stuart isn't sure how relaxing it will be on his own but before long on the first day the sun, swimming and the company of Foster have him de-stressing quickly and an attraction begins to flare between them, especially when he realises that Foster is also gay and single.

I was pulled in pretty quickly with this. It was a quick read and their journey through the tropical islands, clear blue seas and white sandy beaches of the Whitsundays sounded amazing. 

The romance between them was a slow burn, taking until about half way for things to progress to fully physical but you could see that by then it was starting to get emotional between them, too. They were great for each other in a lot of ways and the end bit where Foster sailed down the coast to find Stuart in Sydney was super cute.

I will, of course, be reading more books by this author in the future.
