Jackson Carlisle has rotten luck with men and women, and after an especially bad situation, he takes a step back from romance. But with a two-week family reunion in Hawaii looming, his mom is determined to set him up with one of the sweet singles she knows would be perfect for him. A normal person would tell her no and be done with it. Instead, Jackson tells her he has a boyfriend. The only problem? He doesn’t.
Aaron Wilkes is an escort. He’s a little surprised when a friend’s girlfriend hires him to date her brother, but he’s had stranger jobs. Jackson is cute, and he thinks a fling with Aaron might be just the kind of no-strings-attached fun he needs to get over his dry spell. As they explore the islands together, their carefully laid plans begin to get away from them. Feelings aren’t supposed to come into play, but that shouldn’t be a problem. After all, you can’t fall in love in two weeks….

Tuesday Top Ten: Literary Crushes

At first, this list was going to be favourite literary characters, but then I realised all my choices were guys I drooled over, so I changed the title. :)

I only chose 'original' characters, excluding those based on historical figures. You could argue Saint Germain was historical, since he did exist, but in these books he is not acting out things his real-life counterpart did per se, so I let him in (I love him too much not to).

1)   Enjolras - Les Misérables
2)   Saint Germain - Saint Germain Novels
3)   Gareth - Vampire Empire Series
4)   Mr Darcy - Pride and Prejudice
5)   Maxim de Winter - Rebecca
6)   Mr Rochester - Jane Eyre
7)   Simon Archer - Crown and Key Series
8)   Lestat - The Vampire Chronicles
9)   Henry Tilney - Northanger Abbey
10) Valmont - Les Liaisons Dangereuses
