Review: How I Met Your Father by L.B. Gregg

The man of your dreams could be sitting right next to you. 

Former boy band member Justin Hayes isn’t looking for a man. He just wants a quiet, scandal-free Christmas at home in Chicago, out of the public eye. But his best friend and bandmate is subjecting everyone to his destination wedding, and Justin can’t dodge the “best man” bullet. All he has to do is get to the island on time, survive the reunion, and get Chuck to the altar with as little drama as possible. What could possibly go wrong?

Jack Bassinger’s own plans for a quiet Christmas have been dashed by the summons to his daughter’s hasty wedding with a man Jack has hardly met. On the bumpy flight to the island, he finds himself comforting a nervous—and extremely attractive—young man. One hasty sexual encounter in an airport bathroom later, they both feel much better. No one ever has to know, after all.

Now Justin and Jack must find a way to explore their attraction, despite the distractions of disapproving family members, unexpected announcements, an impromptu concert, and an island paradise that proves there’s no place like home.

A good book that benefits a great cause! How I Met Your Father is just an all-around treat. This sweet romance is first person point of view with Justin keeping the pages turning with a humorous Caribbean Christmas getaway best friend’s wedding.  Be sure to grab a copy for your holiday travels especially if you like your male male romances cute and sweet.

I’m not sure if this was supposed to be a humorous read but I found myself laughing more times than I can count. Justin’s internal dialogue on what is happening around him shows his outstanding personality so well. It is easy to see why people fall at his feet without even taking into consideration that he is so attractive. Jack certainly couldn’t handle just one encounter with Justin.
