Summary: Getting accidentally locked out of his hotel room on Valentine’s Day night is embarrassing enough for teacher Martin Cooper, but the fact he’s stark naked makes it even worse. It doesn’t help that the one person he runs into is Rod, the gorgeous man he’d been checking out earlier in the hotel pool. But when Rod offers Martin a refuge, the night heats up. Now if only Martin could get the hang of this seduction business…

Review: Martin’s sister was dumped by her boyfriend and has nonrefundable reservations at a fancy spa resort. Martin comes with her for moral support and you know, spa! The two of them are so cute together, arguing like loving siblings will. What they agree on is the hunk wearing the speedo at the pool. Eye candy, yes sir!
Unfortunately, the next time Martin meets Rod, the gorgeous swimmer, he’s half drunk, has to pee and is locked out of the hotel room. Naked. Embarrassing!
I admit it, made me laugh. He’s a teacher for pete’s sake! We can’t be locked out of our hotel rooms. And not naked! But meeting a hot man by the spa, toe jobs and general hotness? Might make it worth it.
Just an aside, I won’t say who does it, but my absolute favorite part was a Valentine card delivered “with a fully loaded breakfast tray this morning, starkers and with the card tucked between his buttocks. I’ve no idea how he managed to get up the stairs that way…” That made me laugh out loud and even now, picturing it, makes me smile.
Short, cute and fluffy Valentine’s story!
