Finding His Fantasy by @DeannaWadsworth @DecadentPub #REVIEW
Forty-eight year old art gallery owner Paul Strait loves the nightlife—wild parties, stiff cocktails, and even stiffer men! But his decadent lifestyle has grown lonely and now he’s looking for love. Some days it seems that what he wants must be a fantasy. Hoping that the perfect guy is out there he enlists the help of Madame Eve.
After all, a fantasy service like 1Night Stand should be able to deliver his fantasy man, right?
Josef Debrossé runs an exotic gay bar in the Caribbean known only to locals and select tourists. The many patrons coming in and out of his bar ensure Josef never has a shortage of lovers but he’s grown tired of being just a vacation fling.
Josef wants to be another man’s lover and partner, not a mere souvenir from the islands.
Lost in a dance of lust and allure, both men are thrilled with Madame Eve’s choice for them and feel an intense connection the moment they meet. Flirting over drinks quickly leads to the bedroom. But after their fiery lust has been quenched, the night goes from fantasy to reality without warning. Secrets and frightening pasts threaten to shatter the magical illusion of their perfect date.
Will this budding romance survive in the face of reality?
This is a terrific, quick read from Deanna Wadsworth, that for me started out as one story and ended up being so much more. I have to admit that I didn't like Paul at first. He comes off as a bit abrasive, but he, like this story is much more then what he gives you at the beginning. The chemistry between Paul and Josef is off the charts right from the beginning and the sexual tension is intense. Paul is not the only one with layers to his character, Josef has some secrets of his own. These secrets and vulnerabilities add a lot of depth to the story and give it a much longer feel. Paul and Josef are definitely characters that I would like to see another story about a year from now.
If you are looking for a quick read with characters that have thick walls around their hearts, Finding his Fantasy is a fantasy come true.
