As he approaches his fortieth birthday, Justin Warfield feels alone, drifting like the sand that blows along the beach near his family's hotel. He has done exactly as his father wanted. Married the right girl and carried on the family tradition of running the Warfield Hotel. On paper things seem perfect, but happiness hasn't been a part of his life for a very long time.
Marcus Drummond once spent a summer with his best friend Peter at the Warfield Hotel and fell hard for Peter's much older brother. Five years later he's back, and this time hopes that Justin will see him as more than his kid brother's friend.
Sparks fly when the two meet again, but there are a few things standing in their way. The closet that Justin has himself buried in and someone on a killing spree, dumping bodies on the Warfield beach . . . victims that indicate Justin may be involved in some way.

I found this to be a nice quick mystery read and I enjoyed it. Justin's family owns a hotel near a beach and he has done everything that had been expected from him. He followed tradition and married, followed the rules, and took over running the Warfield hotel but none of this has made him happy. This is because there is a secret inside him that most do not know, he is secretly into marriage and was forced to marry a woman by his father. Along comes Marcus who is the younger brother of Justin's best friend and while Marcus has had feelings for Justin for a while he hasn't been recognized as more than "the younger brother". Things take a change as they meet all grown up and they immediately have feelings for each other, ones that Justin tries to fight. Suddenly Justin's old lovers start showing up dead around the hotel. Of course all things point to Justin. Can they find out who is behind it? Is Marcus next? Will Justin and Marcus have a chance? Or worse of all.... is Justin behind it? The characters were written very well. I am normally not a fan of this type of romance but I enjoyed it. It is a high drama book and is full of pain. Plus I live near the ocean so it also hits close to me for that. ;) The ending will throw you off a bit.
