Romance trades the open road for the high seas in the latest from the author of Focus on Me and Trust the Focus…
Perpetually shy, Quinn Mathers is content to remain in the shadow of his brash best friend Jess Hartman. But before their college graduation, he and Jess have planned one last hurrah: a spring break Caribbean cruise.
And it won’t be just any cruise. On board are members of the reality show Trip League, which follows young twenty-somethings on adventures around the world. Since the show’s beginning, Quinn has been fascinated by J. R. Butler, with his amazing body, warm eyes, and killer grin. Unfortunately, he’s straight—or so the world thinks.
At nineteen, J. R. signed a contract to play straight for the show, and there’s no way to get out of it now. Yet with each passing day, Quinn and J. R. find it harder to keep their hands off each other and to keep out of the camera’s frame. But when the lens finally focuses on them, J. R. must decide if he’s willing to risk his career by admitting his bisexuality, and Quinn must determine if he’s bold enough to stand in the spotlight with the man of his dreams…
I don’t even know where to begin with not only this book, but Megan Erickson‘s fridiculous talent !!! The woman has serious MAD SKILLS. There’s not a subject she doesn’t get right. When you laugh, you bust a gut. When you cry, you bawl. And every one of her books is just ALL THE FEELS.
Although Out of Frame can be read as a standalone, I took advantage of having all three books in the series on my kindle and binge read them back to back. THAT was one heck of a roller-coaster. By the time I got to Out of Frame, I needed a fun and entertaining read. If you read Focus on Me (In Focus #2) then you should know why! And the book delivered in spades! I haven’t this much fun reading in this genre in quite some time. I smiled thru almost the entire story. ALL THE FEELS!
The journey for Quinn and JR was filled with sweetness, affection, friendship, growth, hope and above all, trust. Again, the perfect blend of ALL THE FEELS. And of course, we can’t forget the ridiculously sexy shenanigans these two kids got into ~~~ HOT HOT HOT! And the Epilogue … I didn’t see it coming quite that beautifully, i cried happy tears thru most of it #JUMP <3

IN THE SERIES:
Trust the Focus: In Focus #1
With his college graduation gown expertly pitched into the trash, Justin Akron is ready for the road trip he planned with his best friend Landry— and ready for one last summer of escape from his mother’s controlling grip. Climbing into the Winnebago his father left him, they set out across America in search of the sites his father had captured through the lens of his Nikon.
As an aspiring photographer, Justin can think of no better way to honor his father’s memory than to scatter his ashes at the sites he held sacred. And there’s no one Justin would rather share the experience with more than Landry.
But Justin knows he can’t escape forever. Eventually he’ll have to return home and join his mother’s Senate campaign. Nor can he escape the truth of who he is, and the fact that he’s in love with his out-and-proud travel companion.
Admitting what he wants could hurt his mother’s conservative political career. But with every click of his shutter and every sprinkle of ash, Justin can’t resist Landry’s pull. And when the truth comes into focus, neither is prepared for the secrets the other is hiding.
Focus on Me: In Focus #2

However there are shadows in Riley’s eyes that hide a troubled past. And when those shadows threaten to bury the man whom Colin has fallen in love with, he vows to get Riley the help he needs. For once in his life, quitting isn’t an option…
