Enigmatic Santiago Arista is sexy, kind, achingly lonely, and desperate for love. He’s just about given up on ever finding it, until one warm, summer night, sitting alone in a bar, he sees the gorgeous Aiden. He’s elated when Aiden joins him at his table.

Deep attraction swirls between them. At the end of the night when they share a kiss, Aiden can’t believe the bliss that enfolds him, but have both men found someone to love just when fate is about to throw Aiden into mortal danger? And what will Santiago risk to aid his newfound love?

Santiago had been alone a long, long time when he noticed the handsome young man at a local bar. Fearful of rejection, Santiago couldn’t work up the courage to go say hello, terrified that his heart would be crushed. Aiden had been single for six months and was away on holiday. When his friends and travel companions egged him on to have a holiday fling, Aiden is uncertain but throws caution to the wind.

This is a lovely, albeit short, story about a holiday romance. Aiden and his friends had come to run with the bulls, but Aiden quickly discovers there are other ways in life to get your heart pounding. A lot of the paranormal aspects behind Santiago’s power and origins is left in mystery. I found myself with a few strong hypothesis’ but they weren’t answered until the end of the book. I expect much of the description of Santiago healing Aiden – and the magic/power behind that – was kept necessarily brief due to the short amount of space in the story. I’m not sure this will sit well with readers looking for a strongly magical/paranormal style of story. While it certainly kept the pace of the story moving along and left plenty of room for Aiden and Santiago’s relationship to be given a good amount of space and detail, I believe I would have enjoyed the story more for the better fleshing out of these paranormal details and found that it helped my understanding of the paranormal world and Santiago’s perspective on it all.

Aiden and Santiago’s relationship moved at a quick but understandable pace. With Aiden on a short timeframe due to this being his vacation much of the usual inhibitions people experience when meeting a new partner were understandably pushed to the side. Despite this quicker-than-usual romance I was still pleased that Aiden and Santiago didn’t just immediately jump each other’s bones. We got to see them interact, talk and eat together and saw them both fall for each other in a more than casual, fling-like way. I enjoyed this more romantic aspect to the story and found it really helped sell me on the two men working together. This made the chemistry and sex between them feel a lot more realistic and I feel the steaminess to the story will appeal to a lot of M/M erotica readers.

Light and sexy, this is a fun M/M story with a few hints of paranormal in it. I was pleased with the happy ending and found the two main characters to be realistic and interesting. A good, quick read.
