Romance trades the open road for the high seas in the latest from the author of Focus on Me and Trust the Focus...

Perpetually shy, Quinn Mathers is content to remain in the shadow of his brash best friend Jess Hartman. But before their college graduation, he and Jess have planned one last hurrah: a spring break Caribbean cruise.

And it won’t be just any cruise. On board are members of the reality show Trip League, which follows young twenty-somethings on adventures around the world. Since the show’s beginning, Quinn has been fascinated by J. R. Butler, with his amazing body, warm eyes, and killer grin. Unfortunately, he’s straight—or so the world thinks.

At nineteen, J. R. signed a contract to play straight for the show, and there’s no way to get out of it now. Yet with each passing day, Quinn and J. R. find it harder to keep their hands off each other and to keep out of the camera’s frame. But when the lens finally focuses on them, J. R. must decide if he’s willing to risk his career by admitting his bisexuality, and Quinn must determine if he's bold enough to stand in the spotlight with the man of his dreams...

This was such a fun, cute read! Although, now I wish I were ALREADY on Spring Break! While I'm not a big fan of reality tv, I have to admit this was a fun spin to add along with the cruise setting. I adored Quinn and I liked Jay a lot, so I was rooting for them from the beginning. Jess was also so much fun, as was Levi! So not only did we have a fun setting, but our characters were great too. I love how supportive they were of each other- their friendships were so key to this story!
Quinn was just precious. He was a complete sweetheart. He is a people pleaser though and isn't a take charge kind of guy. Being on spring break with his wild friend Jess, gives him the outlet to finally break free and step out of his comfort zone to go after what he wants for a change. I liked seeing him take chances and it was really inspirational to readers who want to do the same, but are afraid to. Jay was a bit of a tough nut to crack at first, but he was actually a good guy who felt trapped by the situation he was placed in. He notices Quinn, but knows he can't act on his feelings, as he's supposed to be straight for the show and there are cameras EVERYWHERE. Their stolen moments together were definitely great, but my heart ached for them as they shouldn't have to hide from the world.
Overall, I really enjoyed this one. I flew through it and it was just the kind of light-hearted read I needed. I am really looking forward to Levi's book, especially since it's about being on the Appalachian trail!
