Shining in the Sun by Alex Beecroft

Alec Goodchilde has everything a man could want—except the freedom to be himself. Once a year, he motors down to an exclusive yacht club on the Cornish coast and takes the summer off from the trap that is his life. When his car breaks down, leaving him stranded on the beach, he’s transfixed by the sight of a surfer dancing on the waves. The man is summer made flesh. Freedom wrapped up in one lithe package, dripping wet from the sea. Once a year, Darren Stokes takes a break from his life of grinding overwork and appalling relatives, financing his holiday by picking up the first rich man to show an interest. This year, though, he’s cautious—last summer’s meal ticket turned out to be more pain than pleasure. Even though Alex is so deep in the closet he doesn’t even admit he’s gay, Darren finds himself falling hard—until their idyllic night together is shattered by the blinding light of reality…

About the Author

Alex Beecroft was born in Northern Ireland and grew up in the wild countryside of the Peak District. She worked in the British Crown Court before leaving to bring up her daughters. Alex lives with her family in a little village near Cambridge. Alex is only intermittently present in the real world. She has led a Saxon shield wall into battle, toiled as a Georgian kitchen maid, and recently taken up an 800 year old form of English folk dance, but she still hasn’t learned to operate a mobile phone. Shining in the Sun is her third published novel.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book -- good plot and chacracter development, good solid writing + the added bonus of being about two men. Went back to buy others by the same writer.
