Paradise can be hell.

Most people would say being stranded in the villa of Spanish shipping magnate Miguel García Arquero on the beautiful isle of Ibiza wasn’t such a bad deal. But Hudson Barber isn’t one of them. To him, being stuck without a passport in a foreign country far from home is a nightmare, made worse by the fact that the person who did the stranding was his flighty twin brother.

Unwilling to turn Dalvon in for identity theft, Hudson is forced to wait, but meanwhile he discovers the chance to rehabilitate Miguel’s failing local businesses—enterprises left to Dalvon’s inexperienced care. The flagging ventures are a badly wrapped gift from heaven, and if Hudson can turn them around, he might be able to leverage the experience to finish his MBA.

Then Miguel returns to Ibiza, and instead of finding a boy toy, he discovers Hudson has turned his cold villa into a warm, welcoming home. Miguel’s path is clear: convince Hudson to lay down his defenses and let love in.


Mary Calmes has nailed it with another wonderful book! Lay it Down has warm, loving characters that make it hard to put the book down.

Hudson has always been told that his twin Dalvon is the “pretty” twin and that he is the “smart” one. When his twin leaves in the middle of the night with Hudson’s passport, he is stranded. Hudson is soon faced with the reality that there were some people who did not care for his brother. Instead, they believed Hudson was the beautiful one, both inside and out, which leaves him baffled and confused.

Miguel could not agree more, but convincing Hudson that he is not second choice or second best may be impossible.

I always find it such a delight to read and review Mary Calmes books. She consistently writes books with strong and lovable men that are easy to fall in love with.

I really loved Lay it Down and highly recommend it.
