Summary: Small-town security guard, Gill Martin, has lived in Mystique Pointe his entire life. His dating prospects are non-existent and he doesn’t particularly like his job, but at least it’s better than unemployment. Besides, he hasn’t got any better ideas.

Big-city artist, Tommy Hearne, knows exactly what he wants out of life: a successful art career and a successful relationship. He also knows that living in Liberty City is his best chance for pursuing both. Unfortunately, for him, neither of these pursuits seem to be panning out quite to his liking.

When Tommy and his misfit band of friends roll into town for the Laissez Faire, Mystique Pointe’s annual music & art festival, worlds definitely collide. A fiery tryst sparks more than just a lust connection, but what happens when the weekend is over?
Review: Tommy and his friends, artists and close knit, head to Mystique Pointe to share a booth at the annual Laissez Faire, a popular art and music festival. This is a yearly pilgrimage for Tommy but this year he’s lucky enough to share the costs and have help. When they get to Mystic Pointe, he is immediately taken with “Mr Big & Buff”, working security at the event. Of course, this is Gil, who is quiet, sweet and so awesome.
Gil’s father worked for the Mystic Pointe police department and Gil stays there to help his dad out. Again, Gil is lovely. What Gil isn’t is out of the closet. He puts up with crap from the town bigot, Tucker, and is kind to people but not so much to himself.
Tommy and Gil both worked for me. Tommy is exuberant, flirty and sassy; Gil is quiet, shy and slower to respond. They worked, even with a big distance issue. What I didn’t like as much was the Michael aspect. I hope he gets a story next because he needs some redemption in my eyes.
There are a few editing errors that I noticed but didn’t pull me out of the story. I did thoroughly enjoy the ending, which made me happy for both of them.
