Provincetown: Book Four
Brody O’Shea isn’t looking for much, just a hot guy with a decent job, who is sane and doesn’t have kids. The son of a former rock star, Brody has lived through the pain of bankruptcy and bad parenting, and he doesn’t want to experience it again. As a reformed horndog, he wants the security and stability of a relationship. But almost every guy he meets seems satisfied with Mr. Right Now, and he wants to find Mr. Right—now!
The only men Eric Vasquez chases are criminals. As a deputy and single father, he has no need for a relationship after his last one ended disastrously. He lives for and through Maddie, his nine-year-old daughter. Everything else is a needless distraction, but distraction is what Eric gets when he comes to Provincetown to attend the wedding between his cousin Van and the man of his dreams.
When Brody and Eric meet, what they want and what they find conflict. An ocean of expectations separates them. If they cannot move past their reservations to reach each other’s shores, they might miss the boat when love comes to town.
My View – Story:
This is my favorite story of all four. It has more meat and more character development than the rest. Brody finally sees that his tricking days are over because he is finally in the place where he wants a long term commitment. Eric is still dealing with the death of his husband a few years ago. Since neither man initially seeks out sex with the other, their love forms honestly after their friendship begins. Together, the men point out each other’s flaws and insecurities and together they break down each other’s walls. They are good together in and out of the bed. Their relationship took work and made it more rewarding that an easy love at first sight or instant love connection. I really enjoyed this tale and I loved Maddie and the humor/matchmaking she brought to the tale.
I also liked how this story pointed out the growth of the writer throughout this series. The first was very over the top, superficial and sex focused. As the series grew, so did characters and plot development. The author moved away from the simple and superficial, into real depth and emotions. Now that this one is complete, I need to check out more of Mr. Flores’ works.
My View – Narration:
Once again, T.J. Jamesin has grown on me. I look forward to his voice and will look into his other works.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
