2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Bouncing Back by Joe Cosentino (049-03-17-2016)

As a whole the story shines, but individual characters and their arcs sometimes border on cliche. The large cast of characters occasionally overwhelms, but the story is never dull and ends satisfyingly.

Bouncing Back (Cozzi Cove #1) by Joe Cosentino
Gay Contemporary Romance
Publisher: NineStar Press (March 19, 2016)
Amazon Kindle: Bouncing Back (Cozzi Cove #1)

On Cozzi Cove at the New Jersey shore, handsome Cal Cozzi’s seven bungalows are open for summer and love.

Mario and Harold are brothers and college students who happen to look alike, but couldn’t be more different: Mario is searching for love, and Harold is searching for lust. Josh and Greg, a wealthy older couple, are matchmakers for their son, Christopher.

When it comes to Connor, the maid, packed with muscles and a roving sponge, anything can happen. Opposites attract as wild Tim with the secret past meets shy Mark, and porn star Chuck Caliber connects with Sean, a virgin romance novelist.

And what will happen when computer-game designer Arthur has a midnight sea rendezvous with a merman? Even married Cal faces an emotional upheaval when a gay bashing turns into something quite unexpected.

What secrets and passions lie in magical Cozzi Cove?
