Freshly sacked from his professorship, Reuben could do without a month-long holiday on his boyfriend’s private island. But he may as well enjoy the perks while they last. As soon as details of his dismissal surface, he’s sure to wind up alone with his murder mystery fixation.
Born with a silver spoon firmly between his teeth, Leif Claeson is no stranger to loss. He and twin sister Petra could lose their father’s creaking multinational at any moment…unless they fulfil his last wishes to the letter. Then again, Leif has always been something of a wild card. He’d rather vacation with his lover than worry about the future. When a stranger crashes their holiday, Leif sees only the potential for blissful debauchery. Ruben disagrees.
Power and sex make for a potent cocktail and everyone in Leif’s inner circle has a stake in what becomes of this Hellenic paradise. As Leif and Reuben struggle to reconcile their feelings with the strange happenings on the island, a chain of events is set in motion that could endanger their very lives.
Once I got used to this in the book, I did enjoy it. Just when you think you have things straight in your mind to what is happening, something else happens and it changes the perspective of it all, so you just have to keep reading to see what else will happen.
Ruben is licking his wounds after losing his job, and is meeting his boyfriend Leif on holiday. When he arrives, he finds that it is not just him and Leif, but there are some of Leif’s friends there too.
To me, it is like this island is somewhere where anything goes, and no matter if you are already in a relationship, this island means you can sleep with whoever you want – although this does mean that there are some hot menage scenes.
This book is full of twist and turns, people who are not sincere as you first assume, people who are from the outset someone not be trusted. I have to admit I wasn't sure about a couple of characters to begin with, but as with a good story, things were not always as they seemed.
