A Sip of Rio is a feel good, heartwarming read and I enjoyed it from start to finish! I really liked the low-angst feel of this story and loved getting lost in their travels and their journey together. Blaine and Liam are definitely loveable guys that I got attached to! This is a fun strangers to lovers story with a great twist!
Liam has just broken up with his boyfriend, the cheating jerk, and Blaine is a DJ coming off a rough divorce! Liam has a trip planned to Rio but it’s a couple’s trip and he needs someone with the same name as his ex in order to get his dream vacation. Enter Blaine, who just so happens to fit the needed requirements.
These two embark on a great journey together, full of amazing travels, the foundations of a great friendship and even deeper feelings from both men. Although, it takes a bit for those feelings to be revealed. Blaine is bisexual and keeps that to himself for a while, not letting Liam in on that piece of information. And poor Liam is confused by his feelings for Blaine. I felt frustrated for him, struggling with that situation.
There were some amazing moments in this book, of these two exploring Rio, it made me want to plan a trip and visit for myself. I did feel like I was experiencing everything with them. I loved the ending of this book and the way it was Blaine who was the one to step up and prove to Liam how true and strong love can be. This really was a feel-good story and one I will definitely come back to and visit Liam and Blaine again!
When I’m procrastinating, I like to go to the gym, cook Italian meals (and eat them), read, listen to rock music, watch indie movies and True Blood re-runs. Or, in the worst case scenario, get beaten at every Wii game by a very inventive kid
