Genre: Holiday Themed Contemporary Gay M/M Romance
Reid, an American shark research scientist, is in Perth, Australia working to develop a mobile app that may revolutionize shark safety practices. But even the company of his boyfriend, Graham, isn’t enough to stave off homesickness as Christmas approaches, and a missing shark and Graham’s struggling business seem set to ruin the holiday for good.
As a Perth native I was keen to see how well an American could write about my home town, and when A.V. asked for my help in betaing I was more than willing to help. I was surprised by this author’s knowledge of Perth and she was able to conjure up some memories of mine with such clarity that made this short story a lovely read. This is a sweet little story about beach life in Australia and some of its inhabitants. A.V. managed to capture the West Australian coastline and daily life with two sweet guys to cap it all off. A recommended read for everyone who loves a Hot, Wet Christmas.
