Follow The Sun (Sapphire Cay Book 1) Kindle Edition
Lucas is hurt and close to losing everything; Dylan could be the man to save him.
Lucas arrives on the idyllic island of Sapphire Cay with its white-sand beaches and warm balmy nights for his sister’s wedding. Grieving for a friend, stressed, and with an ulcer, he wants to see his sister happy before he returns home to an uncertain future. He doesn’t have the spirit or desire to form a relationship, but laid back, Dylan tempts him with the promise of a new future if only he were brave enough to take the chance.
Dylan never settles in one place for long. A free-spirited traveler, he follows the sun where it takes him and lives for today. Until he meets Lucas and realizes that sometimes the sun is brightest in people’s hearts, and now could be the time to stop moving on.

Lucas is on Sapphire Cay for his sister’s wedding and a vacation. Dylan is back for the fifth season as an all around Island employee. The men are attracted to each other and as the two weeks move along ideas of a change in lifestyles crystallize in both men.
The story is sweet and a bit introspective about what’s important in life. Both men have suffered loss and Lucas has just been diagnosed with some concerning health issues. Their time on the island helps both men reevaluate their lives. It was a quick read about a beautiful place, just perfect for a cold, rainy day.
Even after Tasha, his sister, tried to get him to relax and enjoy the sun, Lucas continued to stress about work and his next business conference. If he pulled it off, he might, just might be able to relax a bit. Yeah, relax, but what does that word mean? All that stress and guilt reached a crescendo when he met Dylan Gray.
Dylan, the exact opposite to Lucas, was tanned, relaxed, and lived with a genuine smile on his face. He simply enjoyed life. But even Dylan had his own burdens, burdens that he felt no one would understand. Then he crossed paths with Lucas and their paths continued to cross since he was the go to person on the island of Sapphire Cay.
Scott and Russell did a great job painting the picture of the island, the wedding party, and the two men whose lives crossed in a most unusual way. How their lives seem so dissimilar yet matched almost exactly. The story unfolded slowly yet had enough mystery and excitement that I wanted to continue the journey with these two men. At several points I wanted to shout at either Lucas or Dylan and tell them to stop and enjoy, but the story pulled me past those points and I found myself just enjoying the journey these two were traveling.
If you enjoy reading a story filled with angst, doubt, love, and wonder, than Follow The Sun by RJ Scott and Meredith Russell is a good book to read.
Lucas heads to Sapphire Cay to host his sister's wedding at the resort. They are orphans and he has raised her since she was a teenager. Lucas has always had responsibilities, whether it be his sister or the high powered and very stressful career he has. However he is overworked, unhealthy and obviously has lost his passion for the job. The death of his boss and mentor has him questioning the direction his life is taking.
Dylan 'follows the sun'. He travels the world, finding work where he can but has returned to work at Sapphire Cay for the last 5 years. He has had his own fair share of tragedy and disappointment in his life.
Lucas and Dylan are drawn to each other but their relationship develops fairly gently, both afraid of moving too fast. A lot of the focus is on Dylan trying to draw out Lucas, to put a smile on his face. Lucas' sadness and worries play a significant role.
Dylan has some decisions he also needs to make, decisions that would impact his roving ways. I do think there was a lost opportunity or potential plot twist related to the brief visit of Dylan's ex-lover. Knowing about the relationship Dylan had with him helps to understand Dylan better but why did his personal visit not result in any big drama or misunderstanding? I was waiting for something climatic to happen but it didn't eventuate.
Add a sweet sister, wedding shenanigans and a happy ending and it all sums up to an enjoyable story.
