After unknowingly being dumped on an Alaskan cruise by his girlfriend, Brodie Duncan finds himself bored and alone on the big cruise ship. Hurt, he cannot seem to understand why Melanie would do such a thing to him. Frustrated, he jokingly comments he should switch to men since his taste in women sucks. Then he meets Julian.
Julian Richards is in his own terrible relationship. On the weeklong cruise with his girlfriend Amelia, Julian cannot seem to do anything to please her. He slowly starts to resent her and befriends Brodie, a handsome stranger he meets while running.
The two develop a relationship with one another but are afraid of the labels society will tack onto them for it. Brodie feels at his best when he is with Julian, but Julian does not want to be labeled “gay” and has an obnoxious girlfriend on board who has no clue what he’s been up to. Can these two men get over their problems and allow themselves to fall in love? On the other hand, will their week spent be a one-time thing marked in their memory for life as what could have been.
G.A. Hauser’s second story in the MEN IN MOTION series is just as good as the first, if not better. In CRUISING, both Brodie and Julian spend their week of vacation discovering who they really are. They are supposedly straight men with bad taste in women, yet when they spot each other, the sparks fly off the pages. Their chemistry is hot, the plot interesting and the events believable. I cannot wait to see what the next book in the series has in store.
