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 1: Rory Kinsella
As I continued looking at the man across from me in the hot tub, I couldn’t get over the similarities between his appearance and the celebrity’s. “Are you Kieran’s Irish cousin or something?” He laughed boisterously, but I couldn’t stop myself from continuing. “If it wasn’t for your accent, I would assume that you were him or maybe his redheaded twin we’ve somehow never heard about.”
“What if I said I was him?” He flashed a roguish grin at me that made me laugh.
“Come to think of it, he had an accent when he played that Irish mobster turned good guy in Banjaxed.” I wasn’t seriously sitting across from the real Kieran Aiello, was I? “It’s really you, isn’t it?”
His shoulders slumped as he sighed in defeat. “Damn it, I thought nobody would clock me if I had my natural hair and used an Irish accent,” he grumbled in his regular American voice. “I’m supposed to be hiding, but the hot tub was too inviting to stay in my room.”
I blinked at him in shock, having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact I was face-to-face with the real Kieran Aiello. “Holy shit, it’s really you!”
“Surprise.” His smile turned wan as some of his playfulness disappeared behind a guarded wall.
I couldn’t process how I had ended up half a world away from home and in a hot tub with one of the biggest Hollywood stars of all time. But I didn’t like seeing him withdraw into himself. “I can’t even imagine the hell you’ve been through these past few days with the scandal playing on an endless loop everywhere. You have my word. I won’t tell a single soul that you’re here. You deserve your privacy.”
The walls that had gone up between us disappeared as he gave me a genuine smile. “Thanks, that means a lot.” He ran his hand through his hair, making it stand up in spikes. “My agent would fucking kill me if I got busted over an appearance in a public hot tub, of all places. He sent me here to keep me out of the spotlight.”
I gestured around us. “It’s a smart plan because it doesn’t get much more remote than this.”
“True. What brings you out here to the middle of Nowhere, Sweden?”
“I’m supposed to be on my honeymoon.”
He arched an eyebrow up in silent questioning. “Supposed to be?”
“I broke up with my fiancée, so I’m on a me-moon instead. It’s great to be here without her here to ruin everything.”
“A me-moon?” Kieran laughed hard at the funny term Jude had come up with. “I love it. Wow, she must have been a disaster to make someone as nice as you break up with her.”
I flushed at the compliment. “That’s a polite way of putting it. I got tired of being punished for not being her best friend she was in love with, so I called off our wedding and broke up with her. The only thing I regret is not doing it sooner.”
“Was it a dramatic breakup at the altar, or were you smart enough to escape before then?”
“That was about eight months ago, so I’ve had time to detox and heal.” I basked in the contentment of knowing I had made an excellent decision to save myself. “Now, I’m enjoying being single.”
He smirked at me. “Uh-oh, don’t say that too loudly. That’s usually when the universe drops somebody into your lap, right when you least expect it.”
The absurd idea caused me to snort in amusement. “No, thanks. I’ll be fine if I never have another girlfriend again.”
His smile turned coy. “That sure sounds like you’re tempting fate into giving you a boyfriend.”
