Vacationing at a gay resort is risky business for Winter Media’s CEO, Graham Winters. In negotiations for the purchase of an anti-LGBTQ publication, if found out he preferred men, the deal would collapse, along with Winter Media’s bottom line. But take a risk, Graham does. He can’t pass up two weeks where he can be himself.

But when Graham arrives at Secretus, there is no record of his reservation. Never one to take no for an answer, he coerces the owner of Secretus, Chris Katsaros, to let him stay in Chris’s home.

Winter Media owns one of the worst gossip rags in the country, so Chris has no choice but to agree to Graham’s terms. Chris keeps a low profile when it comes to Secretus, securing a safe environment where high profile gays can relax without media hounding their every move. An introvert by nature, Chris has a difficult time letting anyone into his life. As a foster kid, he had never experienced love until adopted by Pete and Bob.

Forced to entertain Graham, Chris finds they have more in common than he ever thought. The attraction between them is real, and Chris’s guarded heart begins to thaw.

4 Stars!

Chris is forced to accept Graham in his house after his reservation at Chris' exclusive resort disappears. Not wanting to deal with the repercussions that turning away the owner of Winter Media might bring, Chris has to entertain Graham for two weeks. What he didn't count on was his attraction to the closeted media mogul.

I really liked Chris. He came across as gruff, but he truly was just guarding himself because he was a foster kid and he was shy, too. I wasn't too sure about Graham, he was so pushy at first and I'm not particularly fond of closeted characters. I get frustrated and annoyed when a grown man just can't get his act together, especially one as powerful as Graham seemed to be. He did get better eventually and I warmed up to him. The chemistry between Chris and Graham was undeniable and the sex scenes were hot, which is always a plus. 

Overall, the book was entertaining, well-written, steamy and while this is my first Viki Lyn book, it surely won't be the last. Very recommendable!
