Blurb:

When Griffin Kloss escapes the hilly Carolinas to lick his wounds in balmy Fort Lauderdale, it’s a welcome relief for the former college football player. But with his mom and childhood home both in shambles, Griffin soon realizes he’s got much more to take care of than just himself. In need of escape, fun, and relief, Griffin meets the mysterious and alluring Jackson Frost.

Sparks fly as ex-frat boy meets smoking-hot spring breaker. Amid the heat of the sun and sandy beaches, Griffin and Jackson take each other by storm and along the way discover their connection is more than just coincidence. Theirs is a magical union that’s practically written in the stars, but will their passion be enough to sustain them through their discoveries or will Griffin’s need to nurse his mother back to health come between him and Jackson?

My View:

Hmm… What to say… There was a lot going on that seemed like it wouldn’t fit in one book. Horny frat boys on spring break coupled with hunky out of work man dealing with his mother’s failing health and a little magic thrown in for good measure.

We don’t get any background as to how Jackson came to be with this group of friends considering who and what he is. The friends themselves seem super shallow, although they do seem to be there for Jackson when push comes to shove.

I admired Griffon for staying strong and putting his mom first (as he should), although I felt he should have realized she was sick sooner. We aren’t told when he arrived back in town only that he was there now.

Griffon and Jackson don’t seem to have anything in common except their magical connection and I found the sex scenes between them crude. In fact I found a lot of the dialog to be somewhat cheesy or awkward.

There were also a few places where names were mistakenly interchanged that caused confusion reading the story.

On the whole it was an ok story though it felt unfinished with only a vague HFN ending with lots of loose ends left.
