My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I can’t put my finger on why this series from Harley Grace works so well for me, but it just does.
Each one has been an absolute delight, they’re just low angst, feel good reads with a brilliant setting, loads of great secondary characters and two MCs who are always just right for each other.
Even if things do always seem to happen in a short space of time, they are on a holiday island after all, they never feel like it’s an instalove situation. The two men just seem to have that spark, a connection from the off which allows them to open up to the other naturally without anything feeling forced or rushed.
Here it’s Chef Eli’s turn and his match is Spencer, a not quite as uptight as he might first seem administrator who Mr Blissand has brought to the resort to take some of the pressure off Eli’s shoulders.
While their initial meeting is a bit fraught, it’s also filled with sparks of chemistry and I was laughing my head off at how quickly they were snogging in a cupboard because they really are a perfect match.
Tensions arise solely from the outside auditor who’s been sent along to essentially see if Mr B has lost his mind, and her attitude leaves a lot to be desired. But, suffice it to say, those who work on the island are a family and they all pull together to see that not only is Mr B protected, but that no-one puts doubt on either Eli or Spencer.
I know it’s always hard for a new author to make a mark in what’s a crowded space already, but these books really are just a whole load of fun. They definitely bring me the Bliss that Adrien wants all his guests to find 😁
Now, please can I have Trace’s story next (and Mr B’s after that!)
