I especially like that the majority of the internal and external conflict of this book did not revolve around Ginsberg being transgender. That's been done before, and while Derrick had his share of hangups, I'm glad he mostly rolled with the transgender issue. To this point, the Bluewater Bay series has been fun with a dash of angst, and overloading this book with drama would have felt out of the pattern.
As a secondary character, Jim fell into way too many stereotypes for me to enjoy him much. I won't be sad if he never pops up as a background character in the next Bluewater Bay books.
I still felt like I needed to read this story to help full the Bluewater Bay tapestry. It just felt a bit like homework. Maybe it's good that I wasn't able to empathize with Derrick.?? I did like Ginsberg and Jay. 3.0 for Victoria B.
I have not read previous books in this series but I did not feel confused at all because as far as I know the only connection between these books is that they all take place in the small town of Blue Water Bay and there is a TV show "Wolf landing" being filmed in the town. I also figured out that the secondary characters from the previous books make cameo appearances but it does not make the story confusing at all.
We meet Derrick who is running "B&B" hotel which he inherited from his dead parents or should we say succesfully almost run the business into the ground - he cannot cook, he does not want/know how to clean well and his last guests just decided to go into another hotel. Derrick is almost sure that he wants to close the hotel before he completely ruins his parents' legacy. That is till injured stunt performer from "Wolf landing" shows up at his door and Derrick decides to allow him to stay there. Ginsberg on the surface is as different from Derrick as two men could be. He is a sunny optimist who is genuinely trying to see good in the world and in the people around him. At first he feels bad for Derrick and decides to help him to deal with "B&B" and of course since it is a romance falling in love slowly takes place. I actually *loved*, *loved* that we are shown how and why the guys fall in love, how they see more in each other than is shown at the first sight. Physical attraction may be there soon enough, but I will argue that before they have sex (and there are only two sex scenes in this book) they actually become friends. And Derrick's grumbling pessimism slowly but surely eases up as situation with his business is getting better with Ginsberg's help.
Even separation made perfect sense to me, because surely as much as one tries, his insecurities do not go away in a few weeks after being wrapped up in it for years.
I think this will be a reread for me.

Ginsberg is a stuntman on the TV series Wolf's Landing who sustains an injury on set and ends up at closeted logger, Derrick's, failing B&B.
The two men are the ultimate examples of opposites attracts and Ginsberg's admission about his true self doesn't dim their feelings.
This was a different take on an MM romance which I enjoyed.
Let's just say I couldn't see the point and spent too much time Googling to see if this character situation has ever actually happened. It seems it has; one such example actually works in the Gay Adult Film Industry and goes by the name of Buck Angel.
I wish I could have liked this story more. The theme is certainly bravery. It just didn't work for me.
