Then I realized, these books were meant to be savored. Kind of like the biggest chip in the bag, which I always wait until last to eat.
I just finished CC3, even though I purchased the book the day it was released. I forced myself to savor the book over a week's time. And the enjoyment kept me happy and smiling for the whole week.
Thanks for the happy times, Joe Cosentino!
Yet again this author showered us with the Cosentino magic, I was drenched in his drama, angst, ultimate love and…..angels, he certainly pulled another triumph from his magician’s hat.
For the uninitiated, Cozzi Cove is a gay holiday resort and after the death of his parents and with the help (financially) from his sister, his younger lover and recently found half brother, Cal runs it himself and has found his true calling.
So let's talk about the Cozzi’s themselves…….
Cal. Owner of Cozzi Cove. In love with his younger lover, but still hung-up over the death of his husband.
Michael. Cal’s younger lover. “Star of Cal’s nights and his brightness in the mornings” but tried to gay-bash Cal on their first meeting! Now all he wants is for Call to make an honest man of him and marry him. Michael needs this to make his life complete.
Taylor. Cal’s sister and financial wizard. With her mordant wit that she lavishly sprinkles over the people she loves, it covers the real Taylor and the secret she is hiding.
George. Cal and Taylor’s half brother. Gifted designer but still reeling from the shock that the love of his life walked out on him because he wasn't’t Jewish!
But it's not just about the Cozzi’s and the webs they weave, it's also about the Guests that check-in and check-out. But they never check out of our hearts. We as readers, remember everyone of them – they are the real beauty of Cozzi Cove together with this author’s amazing talent – he makes these OTT characters stay with us, his characterisation is just phenomenal and therefore great fun to read, I never chuckle as much as I do as when I'm reading a Cosentino.
And I cannot resist but mention Connor. My all time favourite trolley dolly nymphomaniac. His enthusiasm for sex leaves me gobsmacked but Connor is gobsmacked as well - he’s fallen madly in love and this time, it's real love……
For me, Stepping Out, unlike the others in the Series, is about your past catching up with you. The truth will always come out and deeds will be punished but for some, maybe get their rewards they so deserve.
The Series goes from strength to strength with each new addition but don't worry if you haven't read the others yet, it can be read very successfully as a stand alone.
Five big fat stars from me.
****I voluntary reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of the book****
Owner Cal Cozzi is 'happily' settled with his younger boyfriend, Michael, but Michael wants more. Cal's half brother George is again staying in bungalow seven while their sister, Taylor, is recovering from a mild heart attack and staying in the main bungalow with Cal. Can Taylor’s oldest and dearest friend Carla persuade her to admit her feelings and come back to Cozzi Cove for good?
Taylor's cardiologist, Aaron, is in bungalow one and he just happens to be George's ex. Did Taylor hatch a plan to get them in the same place at the same time? There's pain and hurt to be worked out between them but can George forgive and forget? Connor the 'maid' is still working at the Cove and a new guest, in bungalow three, Dr. Nastas Flowingstream, a psychology professor, has rubbed him up the wrong way right from the start. Connor grudgingly agrees to analysis sessions to help Nastas write a paper on nymphomania, but things take an unexpected twist!
There's a strange 'woman', Blue Magnum, in bungalow four who seems to know all the locals but no one can quite place her. She even makes gay bar owner, Tommy, question his sexuality. Her harrowing story involves all of the local residents in some way. Pastor Bill is having a crisis of faith in bungalow two following a string of bad events in his life, that is, until he meets three 'angels' staying in bungalows five and six, Gabriel, Raphael and their leader, Kamael. Kamael opens Bill's eyes to a new way of showing his faith, but will Bill give up being a minister?
Will siblings Cal, George and Taylor get over their fears of commitment? The stories of Cal and Michael, George and Aaron, and Taylor and Carla are brilliant and are cleverly described alongside those of the guests.
I loved this book, and the wonderful feel good factor it evoked. For me, it’s the best of the series so far. The characters are, again, perfect for the stories that unwind slowly and are then wound up again into ideal conclusions. The ending ties up all the residents and guests stories but leaves enough open for more. Cozzi Cove, where dreams really do come true.
****I would like to thank the author for the privilege and opportunity of reading this ARC. My review is an honest opinion of the book****
