Crema (Dreamboat Island Book 1) by Steve Milton 2.5 Stars
Zippy the calculator boy is now Zeke the muscleman.
Zeke walks into Crema, where the GNC used to be. Zeke’s muscles make Clark spill all the covfefe, despite Clark being totally, completely straight. Zeke helps Clark clean up, and is always ready to catch Clark from a fall, but every bit of affection Zeke shows him terrifies Clark — maybe Clark isn’t so straight?
Clark still has those gray eyes and that gentle smile.
Zeke came back to Amelia Island to get away from being played by “straight” guys. His elementary-school buddy Clark is now running a coffee shop, and he still has his adorable awkwardness and kind gray eyes, but Clark is definitely straight, or at least probably straight. And Zeke’s dad is the mayor, and he definitely can’t find out his son is gay. That and Zeke’s creepy closeted ex wants to close down Crema.
I didn’t have everything about this. I get that is suppose to be silly and over the top. And it is. If I read any of the sexy parts aloud I wouldn’t stop laughing for a week with the phrasing.
The plot is crazy from the nutty will to the matching exotic cars.
There some sweet twists and then it jumps the shark, several times. And the characters development weak.
Sigh. Looking for a funny book with character development.
