On her thirty-ninth birthday, Lainie gets a completely unexpected “present.” Divorce papers. Certain that her heart is irretrievably broken, she cries herself to sleep -- and wakes up, even more unexpectedly, in Belize. At a resort. With three of the most gorgeous pool boys she's ever set eyes on.
Rutger. Jamar. Paolo. Each more edibly handsome than the last. For Lainie, absolute, unendurable heartbreak is looking better all the time!
This is a very interesting short story from Sierra Dafoe.
Surprises can be good or bad. In Lainie’s case, the surprise she got for her thirty-ninth birthday was the worst: totally unexpected divorce papers. What a birthday present. After crying herself to sleep, she wakes up to another surprise: she is poolside in Belize with no idea how she got there. One thing is for sure, it is just what she needed, especially when three of the hottest young men start catering to her every whim. Can Rutger, Paolo and Jamar convince Lainie that she is ready to start a new and better chapter in her life? Can they teach her that this is a new beginning, not an ending?
I love Lainie, a woman at the edge of it all, a bit confused about how it all happened. She has no idea how she got to Belize, but I liked the fact that she was more than up for the adventure.
I enjoyed how Ms Dafoe put the teenage girls in for contrast to the more mature Lainie. The girls flirted with the pool boys, but the boys only had eyes for our heroine, Lainie.
And what a fantastic group of men. Rutger, a college student from Uzbekistan, is big, blond and built for action. Paolo is Portuguese, and his accent is just like the air in Belize; soft, sultry, way too much like sex. And Jamar, the lifeguard, with abs so taut they ripple when he laughs, and his skin glows like polished mahogany across his broad, rolling shoulders. What a smorgasbord to choose from.
Of course, this wouldn’t be Sierra Dafoe without a tantalizing and sizzling bit of hot sex, and the scene by the pool in moonlight does not disappoint. Which one does Lainie choose? I think you need to read Pool Boys, and discover that for yourself. But one warning: keep anything combustible far from this one, it is short but very hot.
