Message in a bottle.
Somewhere in the cobwebbed cellar of the decrepit antebellum mansion known as Ballineen are the legendary Lee bottles -- and Austin Gillespie is there to find them. The last thing on his mind is hot and heavy romance with handsome bad boy Jeff Brady. But Jeff has other ideas and, after one intoxicating night, so does Austin.
The only problem is they have different ideas. Jeff doesn't believe in love at first sight, and even if he did, he's buried more deeply in the closet than those famous missing bottles of vintage Madeira. Popping a cork or two is one thing. Popping the question? No way. No how.
Unless Austin is ready to give up on another dream, he's going to have to figure out how to make sure the lights go on -- and stay on -- in Georgia.
Josh Lanyon has done it again! How this never crossed my path before now I'll never know. As usual there will be no spoilers here but I will say that Austin and Jeff may seem to have nothing in common but it's been my experience that is often when the two in question are more alike than they're willing to admit. If you find that to be true when it comes to these two well you will have to read A Vintage Affair for yourself.
M/F/M ménage scenes don't always fit or work in a gay romance, sometimes they can be awkward and uncomfortable which is what it is here BUT that is exactly why it worked for me. Austin found himself warring within being turned on and uncomfortable which is what made it awkward and that is what it was suppose to do.
Vintage may not be Adrien English caliber but it was a wonderful read that kept me on the edge from beginning to end with a lovely blend of romance, drama, comedy, heat, and a touch of mystery.
