How I Met Your Father

What a fun read this was. It was my first time reading this author and I was so pleased. Pleased enough to run out and buy more of her books right away. This story follows Justin, an ex boy band member, as he's on a plane going to his best friend's wedding. Justin is attracted to the hot, older man sitting next to him. Attracted enough to do some dirty things with him in the bathroom. Imagine his surprise when he finds out it is the bride's father.

The story was sweet and sexy and really funny. Justin's friends are hilarious and they made me laugh out loud more than once. All the characters were well done and I was rooting for Justin and Jack from the moment they ment. This was a good example of how well short stories can be done. A definite recommend from me.

Book Blurb for How I Met Your Father

The man of your dreams could be sitting right next to you....

Former boy band member Justin Hayes isn’t looking for a man. He just wants a quiet, scandal-free Christmas at home in Chicago, out of the public eye. But his best friend and bandmate is subjecting everyone to his destination wedding, and Justin can’t dodge the “best man” bullet. All he has to do is get to the island on time, survive the reunion, and get Chuck to the altar with as little drama as possible. What could possibly go wrong?

Jack Basinger’s own plans for a quiet Christmas have been dashed by the summons to his daughter’s hasty wedding with a man Jack has hardly met. On the bumpy flight to the island, he finds himself comforting a nervous—and extremely attractive—young man. One hasty sexual encounter in an airport bathroom later, they both feel much better. No one ever has to know, after all.

Now Justin and Jack must find a way to explore their attraction, despite the distractions of disapproving family members, unexpected announcements, an impromptu concert, and an island paradise that proves there’s no place like home.
