Benched for a minor knee injury, pro baseball player Devin Carter recuperates on beautiful Islamorada in the Keys, where he meets Jim Dellwood, half-owner of a run-down resort. The attraction is immediate, the chemistry is good, but it’s not love yet. They agree to stay in touch but keep things casual.
Back in Sarasota, Devin hooks up with another player for no-strings sex but quickly realizes Jorge Rodriguez, newest teammate for the Suns, has a different take on their relationship. With things heating up between him and Jim, Devin tries to break it off, but Jorge won’t take no for an answer.
Set in Florida, the sun-drenched land of eternal summer, and played out against the backdrop of high-stakes baseball, this tale of love and obsession will keep you awake long into the night.
The Flamboyant Flamingo was an interesting story. It had a laid back feel despite Jorge’s obsession with Devin. I enjoyed the story for the most part. It was well paced and straightforward. A little too straight forward as I found it a bit predictable.
The steam meter was low, which was ok, but I had a hard time getting Devin and Jim from their open-just met relationship to the I love yous that occurred in the time frame given. I would have liked to see more of them together or had more detail on their conversations when not in stressful situations.
Jorje’s behaviour was definitely horror movie quality crazy but I never felt the tension or suspense I expected to.
On the whole it wasn’t a bad novel in any respect, just sort of meh for me.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
