Provincetown: Book Three
As vain as he is beautiful, Nino Santos happily lives life waiting for the next ferry full of fairies to bring him new conquests. As long as they aren’t hirsute, he’s all in. So he’s shocked to wake up after a beach party he cannot remember with a hairy naked man lying next to him.
Teddy Miller doesn’t remember the “Bear Week” party either, much less the Abercrombie & Fitch model wannabe next to him. Teddy doesn’t give two cents about appearances, but guys like Abercrombie don’t return the favor. That’s why he prefers men with extra fur and padding over carbon copy clones of perfection—a type of man Teddy is far too familiar with.
When Nino and Teddy glimpse each other the next morning, it’s loathing at first sight. Instead of exchanging phone numbers, they exchange insults and vow never to see each other again. In Provincetown, however, escaping a trick best forgotten isn’t easy. Mutual friends and chance circumstances keep Nino and Teddy in each other’s orbit. But are they fighting each other or the attraction growing between them? The answer lies amid Provincetown’s windswept dunes and the night neither of them can recall.
My View – Story:
This one caught me off guard. I didn’t connect with Nino in book one and hated him at the start of this book. What a self centered, selfish, narcissistic ass! I didn’t have an hope for enjoying this but I really did.
I liked that the author gave us a glimpse of Nino’s past and let us into his head. His behavior is all because of insecurities and hurts from his past, which made him more human and even somewhat likable. By the time the ending rolled around, I was actually happy that Nino finally found someone to make him open up and admit his flaws. He and Teddy worked and I really enjoyed their story.
There were plenty times where this could have gone horribly wrong. The meddling best friend, Nino and the ex hooking up, etc. But these items were very quickly settled and almost overlooked. It was a bit too easy for me, but it was needed for the HEA to work and to set up the next story.
My View – Narration:
T.J. Jamesin is growing on me. After this third recording, I enjoy listening to his voice and look forward to his reading of the next book in this series.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
