Late Check in by Mia Monroe

So excited that Oscar gets his shot at a HEA in Mia Monroe's Late Check In

From the blurb

His late awakening plus my years of pining equals one explosive reunion.

Five years ago, he was my history professor. The crush I had on the sophisticated, intellectual man morphed into love. As an older student and teaching assistant, I figured I’d take my shot. I asked him out as soon as the semester was over, only to find out he was married. Oh, and straight.

When he walks into the hotel, just as handsome as ever, the longing I thought was dead comes back hard and fast. I just have to get through his week-long stay, and then I can go back to forgetting he exists.

Until he drops the truth on me. Turns out, he’s not as straight as he thought, and the crush wasn’t one-sided. During his stay, we grow closer, but as the time comes to an end, I have to know, am I more to him than extra credit or is his Late Check In the real thing.

Late Check In is a former professor/student, single dad, small age gap, close proximity, bisexual awakening, quasi second chance romance. It is book 4 in the California Crush series, featuring endless sunny days, long stretches of beach, steamy nights, a colorful cast of characters, and men falling in love like waves crashing in the ocean. Book your vacation and meet the men of Hillcrest Hideaway.

Heather's Review:

I've watched Oscar's character evolve from a swinging single to a man longing for connection as each of his friends found their HEA in the first three books in the California Crush series, and while you'll enjoy the story as a standalone, you'll see the subtle changes in his persona from book to book if you start at the beginning... plus, now that the series is complete, it's binge-worthy!

Oscar has been a supportive friend, a bit of a match maker and a keen cheerleader in his friends relationships, all the while becoming less enamoured with the way he lives his life... realizing that he wants the connection that he's only felt once before - with his straight, former professor... who co-incidentally walks into the gay friendly hotel that Oscar works at and wants to catch up!

Late Check In has a fair amount of angst, a strong bi-awakening story, a dash of Mia Monroe humour and great friends who support Oscar as he learns to trust that what Giovanni really wants is a relationship with him.

I have to admit that I'm going to miss the guys at the Hideaway and I hope they pop up again!
