Honeymoon Ever After
By Ariella Zoelle
Suite Dreams, Book 5
Rory’s never been attracted to a man before, but Kieran changes everything from the first moment they meet. Will he be able to embrace his unexpected feelings for the Hollywood celebrity?
My new life plan is going great:
- Dump my awful fiancée who was in love with her best friend and not me? Done.
- Celebrate my newfound freedom and happiness by going on a solo “me-moon” honeymoon? Great, that should be awesome.
- Fall in love with a famous Hollywood action hero when I’m straight? Wait, what?!
Besides being absurdly handsome and incredibly charismatic, Kieran looks at me with his magnetic and captivating green eyes in a magical way that makes me feel like I’m the only person in the world that matters. But is that really enough to make me forget that I’m normally attracted to women?
Apparently, the answer is “Yes!” However, it’s not only his gorgeous good-looks that sway me into switching teams. No, what really makes him tempting is something much deeper than that. How can an academic nerd like me resist someone as sweet as a man who wears TARDIS pajamas and wants to shower me with all the love my ex-fiancée never gave me?
My hide out from the paparazzi “vacation” plans:
- Go to Sweden to escape from a scandal? Easy, I can do that.
- Stay in my hotel room without leaving for any reason per my manager’s orders? Yeah, that’s not happening.
- Find a hot Swede to hook up with in a sauna? Definitely doable.
But things take a surprising turn when I accidentally run into Rory instead, a cute grad student who actually sees the real me that most people don’t believe is hidden under all my Hollywood muscles. He wasn’t part of my original plans, but what could be more tempting than that?
I always thought the insta-love romances I portrayed in my movies were a little hokey, but Rory turns me into a true believer. The chemistry between us is undeniable, but I want more than just a physical relationship with him. If he’s willing to take a chance by opening his heart to me, then why should I settle for anything less than a true romantic ending of a lifetime of love together?
Honeymoon Ever After is the fifth and final book in the Suite Dreams series and part of the Sunnyside universe. This novel features a bi awakening, insta love, celebrity/regular guy, age gap, forced proximity, 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 10: Kieran Aiello
“Did I walk onto the set of a rom-com and no one told me?” Rory looked around the room as if he was checking for cameras. “This can’t be real life.”
“The most important question is how do you feel?” My heart raced at the thought of him rejecting me, which was a fear I hadn’t faced in a very long time.
“Ecstatic and confused.” He floundered for a few seconds as he tried to find the words to express himself. “Part of me is over the moon to think about more nights ending in your embrace. Part of me wonders why the hell I’m not freaked-out at the prospect of having a boyfriend when I’ve always been straight. Whereas another part of me wonders if I’ve lost my damn mind to even consider it.”
“You don’t have to answer right now. The last thing I want to do is pressure you into making a decision you aren’t comfortable with.”
To my surprise, he lay back down on me as he hugged me. I wrapped my arms around him tighter. “When I’m right here, I could happily stay here forever.”
“You can. That’s what I’m offering you.”
He idly began tracing patterns on my shoulder. “But isn’t this too fast? We’ve barely known each other for three days, so are we seriously jumping into a long-term relationship?”
“Trust me, no one is more surprised than me since I’ve always avoided relationships in the past.”
It was a simple question that didn’t have a great answer. “Things were easier when I was only trying to have sexy fun. But you make me want more than that. I want to curl up on the couch and watch old Doctor Who episodes with you. I keep thinking about what it would be like to read my scripts while you sketch. And I’m weirdly excited for you to laugh at what a horrible cook I am.”
That drew an adorable giggle out of him. “Are you seriously using being a terrible cook as a selling point?”
“Yes, because I know it’ll be a relief to you that I’m not perfect at everything.”
He snorted in amusement. “Wow, you really do know me, don’t you? So, how bad of a cook are we talking here?”
“The kind who still hasn’t figured out that the fire alarm isn’t actually a kitchen timer.”
He cracked up hard at that. “Seriously?”
“I don’t have the attention span for anything that takes more than three minutes in the microwave.” It wasn’t much of a defense, but at least it made him laugh.
