The Perfect Cover by Claire Thompson

Ryan has just lost his work in a big hotel in the States and make a request to work in an exclusive resort on Caribbean for the season. There is only a slightly problem: Club Eros is a gay resort and seems that all the people working there are men and gay. Obviously is not written on the job application, but what is asking to Ryan during his interview is if he is ready to be eye candy for all the customers...

Ryan is not gay. Truth be told he has had some fantasies about men but never follow them where they could lead. So, he thinks, how difficult could be to work a six hour shift per day and then trying to hide somewhere? Ryan is about to discovering that it's very difficult.

Sean is Ryan's roommate. He is not a seasonal worker, he has an all year round work and he is pretty tired to see every year the new guy arrives hoping to find a sugar daddy among the rich customer of the resort. Sean is an old fashioned guy, who believe in the true love. He is romantic and able to fall at first sight. And when he sees Ryan, is right what happens: he falls in love and he will do everything to have a chance with him. Even pose as his boyfriend to protect him from undesiderable advances.

After some time spent together, Ryan is willing to give at his fantasies free way and Sean is the perfect man to help him. But at the end of the season? Ryan has to back home in the States and Sean can't leave his work like that...

This a very tender and pretty long story. Both Ryan and Sean are nice characters. No one of them is a strong and tought alpha male. They are both handsome and nice guys. Maybe Ryan is a bit naive to be a 25 years old guy, pretty unbelievable the things he didn't know, even if he has never had a gay relationship. But well, maybe it's me that is little too malicious :-) Sean instead is too good to be true: so patient and so cute, so ready to fall in love head over heels... So comprehensive and supportive, even when Ryan mades some pretty bad mistakes.

All in all The Perfect Cover is a good romance, in a "classical" way: hot setting, an easy and dreaming contest, perfect characters with not so big problems to overcome... you can enjoy and relax your reading.
