Jamie Hill walks into his local LGBT+ nightclub, Submerge, intending to make friends and have a good time. When he meets comedian Addie Crewe and her girlfriend Gina Wilson, his night is already looking up – but it’s the man Gina introduces him to who really catches his eye. Miles Bradford seems to be everything Jamie could want in a man: smart, funny, kind. Jamie can’t take his eyes off him.

But though Submerge might sparkle on the surface, Jamie knows that the club, just like himself, hides darker secrets in its depths … and even Miles might not be as clean-cut as he appears.

My View:

This isn’t a bad book by any means, but it’s not going to be one I remember, either. The plot is a little cliche, and Ms. Musgrove’s tendency to go off on tangents doesn’t much help that lack of focus.

I most enjoyed Addie and Gina – as a couple, and as friends for the main characters. With a bit more development of the ladies (and maybe some sex here and there, though of course that’s personal taste) I might be more inclined to rec this title.
