Tom has been planning for months, but in those plans he never once found himself on a spa table in Bangkok on his and Santino's one year anniversary. He doesn't do aeroplanes, doesn't like the tropical climate, and he does not do spas.

Yet there he is, without a stitch of clothing, and with a man he's never met before. He'll do his best to enjoy his day and then he'll give

*I received a copy of this book from the author via Don't Buy my Love in exchange for an honest review.

This was fun to read. It was 32 pages and it was enough. I was satisfied in what I read. In my opinion not many author can successfully write a short. It focus on humor with a bit romance. This book highlight exactly what I fear a spa day would entailed. This short mainly focus on Tom and what he is willing go through for his love for Santo. I highly recommend all of this author's short includi
A funny short about two guys, every tourist's worse nightmare, and how far a person would go for love.

4.5 Heart Review by Paul

A short story the way that short stories are supposed to be. I loved this, because in her own way the author connected me to the main character. The whole story is told from Tom’s point of view, and we really get into his mind. He tells us about his love for his younger lover, his doubts about that age-difference and his annoyance for public display of affection. Santino is his lover for a year, but due to a work-commitment, the day that Tom had planned was ruined. To mak
I was given this book free by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

I loved this short book. It takes place around the MCs 1st anniversary. We have Tom preparing to ask his boyfriend to marry him, when he comes home with a promotion and has to go to Thailand. Although he is scared of flying Tom is persuaded to go with him.
From there on, the book is funny. The mix up at the hotel, Toms trip to the spa and then the lovely proposal at the end.
I think there could be so much more with these t

This was a very sweet and lovely story.

It was so hard to see poor Tom and all he had to go through those few days. I liked how much he was willing to sacrifice and how he manage to endure everything for love. It had a nice humorous tone that I loved. The writing was good and it had a nice plot. I didn’t mind the length, sure it was short, but the story was told without feeling something was missing.

Both main characters were likable, I guess I liked Tom the most, maybe because it was his point of

Oh, Tom. You sweet, lovely, loyal man. That was just too much! Fish and snails and glitter, oh my! You deserve all the happiness you get now, Tommy-boy!

Tom has been planning a big anniversary surprise for his lover Santino for months. He has booked them time away at a romantic hotel suite and he intends to propose on their anniversary.

But the path of true love never does run smooth and Santino has to take a work trip to Thailand when their anniversary would fall.

Tom doesn't like planes, doesn't like flying and he wilts like a flower in tropical heat. But he can't turn down Santino's invitation to accompany him on the business trip, even if it m

Another absolute favorite, this story is sweet and the day so imperfect that it’s perfect. Tom has so many plans for his and Santino’s one year anniversary and all of it was ruined when Santino has to fly off to Thailand right after he gets a promotion. Since Tom absolutely does not fly, they won’t even be together for their anniversary and he just had everything so perfect. You want to hug him and tell him everything will be okay. Except love conquers all, including fear of flying, right? So of ...more

Poor Tom; all he wanted was to propose to his boyfriend on their anniversary and instead he finds himself halfway around the world suffering indignities no grown man of his age should suffer. *snicker* I spent pretty much the entire story feeling sorry for Tom. I mean, just nothing is going right for this man and he's still trying to get through it anyway. I totally laughed during the spa portion, however. His reactions were

First story I read in 2016. =) Santino was adorable. Tom was freakin' too "cute" for words as he tried to make his man happy. <3 <3 Cute. Funny. Loved it.

3.5 stars

Tom and Santino are a established could about to celebrate their one year anniversary. When Santino comes home with news of a promotion and business trip to Thailand on their anniversary, Santino convinces a reluctant Tom to go with him. Unknown to Santino was that Tom had planned out their anniversary before hand and really didn't see not going with Santino as a choice. Already hating Thailand for messing up his prop

Santino and Tom are on their way to celebrating their one-year anniversary, but when nothing goes according to plan on the day, leading to a comedy of errors.

This is a light-hearted, sweet and funny story about how things go wrong on the day you want everything to go perfectly. The story is nice and well-written.

Tom and Santino are a case of "opposites attract". There personalities are like yin and yang but they reall

I received this story, for a honest review.

I had a dalama how many stars to give because I enjoyed the first half of the story, but I honestly did not think it fun about the spa treatment. I just wanted to smack Tom, and Sar was just down right childish. The story was excellent written, it did bring out emotions. I guess if you have dry sense of humor you would find it funny, it's not the story's felt I am left angry. So I gave it a 4 star,because I did not fine it funny,
