Review of How I Met Your Father by L.B. Gregg

How I Met Your Father by L.B. Gregg 4*
BLURB: The man of your dreams could be sitting right next to you.
Former boy band member Justin Hayes isn’t looking for a man. He just wants a quiet, scandal-free Christmas at home in Chicago, out of the public eye. But his best friend and bandmate is subjecting everyone to his destination wedding, and Justin can’t dodge the “best man” bullet. All he has to do is get to the island on time, survive the reunion, and get Chuck to the altar with as little drama as possible. What could possibly go wrong?
Jack Bassinger’s own plans for a quiet Christmas have been dashed by the summons to his daughter’s hasty wedding with a man Jack has hardly met. On the bumpy flight to the island, he finds himself comforting a nervous—and extremely attractive—young man. One hasty sexual encounter in an airport bathroom later, they both feel much better. No one ever has to know, after all.
Now Justin and Jack must find a way to explore their attraction, despite the distractions of disapproving family members, unexpected announcements, an impromptu concert, and an island paradise that proves there’s no place like home.

My Review:Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley. I enjoyed this story from the start. It was amusing, hot and heartwarming. I especially loved Justin's internal dialogues with himself, I found myself giggling over them a lot. This dialogue actually gives the reader a wonderful insight into his character and I just wish i had had more of an insight into Jack's to balance it out. Between that and the shortness of the story (which I feel had plenty of scope for expansion) I could only give this a four star not the five star it probably deserves for the writing skills and storyline. I certainly recommend buying it as it's a good story and it's for a good cause too (I will more than likely go and buy my own copy just so I can give to the cause.)
