Blurb: Garry’s at the end of his tether. He’s waiting at Glasgow Airport to meet his friend Will, on their way to a holiday in a Scottish Highlands hotel. Now there’s a ten-hour delay to incoming flights, the seat in the lounge is more like an instrument of torture, and he’s beyond tired of airport food.
He’s also dreading having to apologise for the pass he recently made at Will, his colleague at a London bank, under the influence of too many beers and a long-held crush. Now Will’s been offered a new job offer on a continent thousands of miles away, Garry realises it may be the end of their close friendship—let alone anything more.
To add to Garry’s stress, he’s treated to the company of Emily and Max, two young people who think he needs educating in the ways of the world. Struggling with their well-meaning help and the startling mess from spilled ketchup and noxious-smelling sweets, he’s encouraged to re-examine how he feels about Will and to decide what kind of journey he’d really like them to take together.
Review: Each book in the London Lads collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Garry and Will have been friends for quite sometime, but Garry wants more. He is about to get the help of two darling angels, he never expected. I would love to go on about this story, but guess you should read it. Don’t want to give to much of it away.
It is a very sweet little love story that will brighten your day. I just wished it had not been so short, because I would have loved to see Garry’s expression at the end. It was funny as hell and entertained me quite a bit. I would definitely recommend this book. It is perfect for a short little break in life.
