(Synopsis) Perpetually shy, Quinn Mathers is content to remain in the shadow of his brash best friend Jess Hartman. But before their college graduation, he and Jess have planned one last hurrah: a spring break Caribbean cruise.
And it won’t be just any cruise. On board are members of the reality show Trip League, which follows young twenty-somethings on adventures around the world. Since the show’s beginning, Quinn has been fascinated by J. R. Butler, with his amazing body, warm eyes, and killer grin. Unfortunately, he’s straight—or so the world thinks.
At nineteen, J. R. signed a contract to play straight for the show, and there’s no way to get out of it now. Yet with each passing day, Quinn and J. R. find it harder to keep their hands off each other and to keep out of the camera’s frame. But when the lens finally focuses on them, J. R. must decide if he’s willing to risk his career by admitting his bisexuality, and Quinn must determine if he's bold enough to stand in the spotlight with the man of his dreams...
"My skin is tight, and I want to scream. I want to scream until I'm hoarse that this isn't who I am. That I'm so much more than the J.R. Butler they edit me to be on TV."
Since we first met Quinn in book two, as he's BFFs with Colin's sister, AND since Riley is good friends with Landry, there is a point in the book where we do catch up with both previous couples - Colin and Riley and Justin and Landry. I LOVE that Megan Erickson gives us those moments in her books.
