Blurb: Photographer Skyler Spencer comes to Key West for his brother’s wedding expecting to take some pictures, act as best man, and maybe spend a little time getting to know his brother’s fiancée and her twin sister. Then he learns that not only is the twin a man rather than a woman, but it’s a man he’s met before–under less than appropriate circumstances.
Casey Baker doesn’t expect the guy he once had a memorable encounter in a club bathroom with to turn up as his brother-in-law to be, but he’s able to deal with the surprise. Dealing with the strong attraction they feel for each other is a lot more difficult, but Casey figures a short, hot fling will take care of that. Too bad he’s not good at staying detached, and Skyler’s not good at commitment.
When Mother Nature and the past combine to put the wedding in jeopardy, Skyler and Casey have more than just their own confused feelings to deal with. Will the weekend end with two sets of broken hearts?

Review: Perfect for a bit of light reading. Skylar Spencer heads to Key West when his baby brother calls him to be his best man. Take some pictures, stand up for his brother, and meet his soon to be sister-in-law and her twin sister. Easy peasy, right? Well, said twin turns out to be a guy and not just any guy, but a guy Skylar has history with.
The story flows well from beginning to end with likeable characters and a cute storyline of the past, present and future coming together. The history that Skylar and Casey share, albeit brief, makes them comfortable with each other. There is a lot of content wrapped up in just a few pages. From the impending wedding of their siblings to their own budding romance and Gold manages to bring everything full circle in the end.
Predictable, but fun read with a definite HEA. Perfect story for hopeless romantics, with the added M/M twist.
