Sun over Santorini: Snatched!!

New chapter time, and things are tough all over. Where’s Dima? Has the foursome become a permanent trio? Has the idyllic Greek holiday turned into a dramatic early goodbye? How will Ian take it?

Author’s Notes:

My friends and I loved Mykonos, but it was a little exhausting. The girls always worried about fashion and how they looked. I did too, stressing about cruising and fitting in with other gay guys, which I had little experience with in my early and mid twenties. Ios was more our speed, with its spring-break vibe. It’s a lot wilder today than it was in the 80s, though. The hotel bartender and his son, who will soon play key roles in this story, are drawn from real life.

This is Ios. Pretty much all there is to it.
