Gaycation in Paradise
By Ariella Zoelle

Suite Dreams, Book 4

Aldo tries to play it cool when he works for his celebrity crush, but resisting the temptation to flirt with Rook is tough. Not falling in love with him is impossible.

Aldo Farnese

They always say don’t meet your idols, but I’m assigned to work as the live-in butler for Rook Warrick, the famous Hollywood action hero on the run from a scandal. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to act normal while fanboying about your secret celebrity crush when you’re in forced proximity with him and all of his powerful pheromones? It’s so hard, and I mean that in every sense of the word. Seriously, he is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S. How can I resist my urges to take the chance of a lifetime at being with him?

Imagine my shock when I discover Rook missed his calling as the romantic lead in those cheesy rom-com movies my siblings adore. He’s so charming, wonderful, and thoughtful that he makes me swoon—and trust me, I am not the swooning type. My preference for quick-and-easy goes right out the window to drown in the blue lagoon outside our villa. He makes my heart want those happily ever afters I used to scoff at until I met him. Will he take me seriously when I say I have real feelings for him or think I’m just an immature kid who can’t handle commitment?

Rook Warrick

I never expected to feel like I didn’t have a single care in the world when my career is on the brink of disaster after a paparazzi video of me kissing my male co-star goes viral. But Aldo is a surprisingly perverted ray of sunshine who makes me laugh harder than I have in years. His laid-back attitude and quick wit make my forced banishment feel like I’m on a real vacation with a good friend…who I occasionally hook up with because he’s entirely too tempting to resist. Not to mention he’s very persuasive.

Aldo is the polar opposite of what I prefer in my partners: he’s eighteen years younger, a full foot shorter than me, and looks like he doesn’t have what it takes to keep me satisfied when I like a man to take control of my desires. But he unexpectedly ticks all my boxes, including a few new ones I didn’t even know I had. I have a long list of very valid reasons why it would be smart to keep my distance from him. But why should I let any of that stop me when I’ve fallen in love with him?

Gaycation in Paradise is the fourth book in the Suite Dreams series and part of the Sunnyside universe. This novel features a celebrity/regular guy, insta love, age gap, forced proximity, opposites attract, gay romance. If you love cute sweetness, sexy fun, and no angst stories that will make you laugh and swoon, you’ll enjoy this satisfying HEA without cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone or as part of the series in order.

Chapter 8: Aldo Farnese


Thankfully, I could hear the amusement in his voice. “Are you really giving me a good-night hug?”

“You could think of it as upright cuddling if it makes it less weird for you,” I joked as I looked up at him with a broad grin. “You looked like you needed it.”

His lips quirked up as he absentmindedly rubbed my back. “Maybe I did.”

“You definitely did.” Feeling particularly bold, I went up on tiptoes and kissed the underside of his chin, since that was the only part of him I was tall enough to reach. “You looked like you needed a good-night kiss, too.”

One of his eyebrows cocked upward in a silent challenge. “Isn’t that a little too chaste for you of all people to call a good-night kiss?”

My heart raced from the exhilarating thrill of a new game starting. “You’re welcome to demonstrate what you’d prefer instead.”

I thought he would balk at my offer, but to my great delight, he cupped my face in his hands and kissed me. It wasn’t a soft whisper of a kiss wishing me sweet dreams. No, it was a dominating, soul-searing, toe-curling, fuck-me-until-I-come-three-times-and-pass-out kind of kiss that I moaned into as I laced my fingers in his hair and tugged him closer. Gone was the Rook from earlier who had let me take control of his desires. Now, he ravaged me like the alpha hero he played in the movies, as if he intended to lay me flat out on the coffee table and fuck me until we broke it. And while I normally preferred being able to take the lead, I was more than okay with submitting to his demands that I give in to him when it felt that amazing.

When he finally let me gasp for breath, there was a dark fire in his eyes that set my soul ablaze. My dick was as hard as a steel rod, and I was seconds away from stripping naked and spreading my legs for him. All he had to do was say the word and my ass was his, which was a privilege I had allowed only my first two sexual partners before I decided it wasn’t for me.

He traced my lower lip with his thumb as he gazed down at me through lowered lashes that made my cock twitch in the confines of my now too-tight pants. “Good night,” Rook murmured in his deep, sexy voice before stepping back to put distance between us—but not before I noticed I wasn’t the only one with a raging hard-on.

My jaw dropped as I spluttered. “You—you can’t—you’re just going to fucking walk away after a kiss like that?”

“Sweet dreams.” The cocky fucker had the audacity to blow me a kiss before leaving with a hearty laugh. It simultaneously left me in stitches and fuming mad that he had no intentions of doing anything about the major case of blue balls he had just given me.

“Don’t forget that paybacks are hell!” I called out to him before he disappeared into his room as he kept laughing, shutting the door behind him.

Left alone in the living room, completely riled up, I clenched my hands into fists as I tried to steady myself. “Fuck!” I hissed under my breath as I grabbed my computer and shut off the lights. As I passed by his room, I said loud enough to be heard, “Just for that, I’m jerking off while thinking about you! And don’t think I don’t know you’re getting off fantasizing about me in there!”
