Infinity Pools (Changing Plans #2)
Amber Allure, 2011
It started with a snowstorm and ended with a sizzling one-night-stand, but neither man is ready for it to be over.
Jilted groom Elliott Chandler doesn’t do “last minute” or “impulsive,” but at the very last minute, he impulsively changes his flight from Oahu to Maui. What was supposed to be his honeymoon turned into two weeks with a man he just met.
Derek Windsor is all about “last minute” and “impulsive,” but what he doesn’t do is fall in love. He’s a happily promiscuous bachelor and that’s final.
They thought one night together wasn’t enough. Two weeks, however, is going to be more than they bargained for.

Guest review by SharonS.:
This is the sequel to Getting Off the Ground (Book #1 Changing Plans). It picks up right where the first one left off. Elliot is on a plane headed to Hawaii to spend two weeks with the rich and sexy playboy Derek. You don’t have to read the first story, but you would be missing out on a wonderfully emotional love scene.
I fell in love with Derek and Elliot in the first book. Witt wrote a sensual, yet tender story about a one night stand between the forever bachelor Derek, and Elliot who was left standing at the alter. Infinity Pools shows Elliot struggling and coming to terms with the ending of one relationship and what could be the beginning of a new and completely different one. Since it is written from Elliot’s POV we only get his internal thoughts as he realizes he is falling in love, but we can tell from Derek’s actions he is also surprised by the intensity of his attraction to Elliot.
Getting off the Ground moved quicker, but it was a much shorter story and focused on their instant sexual attraction. Infinity Pools moves a little slower as the two men get to know each other, but once they do give into their feelings *sigh* things heat up physically and emotionally. Once again, Witt gives a lot of attention to the kissing. I feel this adds a whole different layer of intimacy to the relationship and makes it more realistic.
I love the way Witt writes these characters. It is a happy, sappy love story that will make you feel good when you are done.
This is when Elliott realizes how he feels about Derek:
He gave a quiet, almost shy laugh. "Kind of hard to believe we didn't even know each other two weeks ago."
"Wow, no kidding." Kind of hard? Not even close. I couldn't get my head around it at all. It didn't make sense that we'd ever been strangers, never mind so recently. We were too intimate. Too close. My body reacted too strongly to him, and not just sexually.
Derek kissed me.
Then our eyes met.
And my heart stopped.
I love you.
The third and final book in the Changing Plans series - On The List - will be released on August 21. Stay tuned because there is no way I’m not reading this one *g* and I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you.
We also might have an interview with L.A. Witt and a giveaway here at Rarely Dusty Books for you to look forward to. ;)
