The mystery itself is engaging and features lots of twists and turns. It's not too difficult to figure out whodunit, but getting to the thrilling climax is still an enjoyable experience. The scenes of lead character Nicky eavesdropping in on conversations and sexual encounters are especially fun and work as a great little plot device to quickly move the story forward.
I'll definitely keep my eye out for the next book in the series, Drama Cruise.
The murders were very interesting. My choice of the killer changed every time someone died which made it even more fun for me. It was very fast paced. I absolutely couldn't put it down. I love how Mr. Cosentino just gets to the point. Even the love scenes. I mean if you are going to do something just do it. Don't spend two pages thinking about it or begging each other. There were no long, long descriptions of scenes or characters. I absolutely love how he writes theses stories and l certainly hope this is not the last one. Highly, highly recommended.
I had never encountered a voice or writing style like Joe Cosentino's before I picked up Drama Queen, and I think that in Drama Muscle the humor, characters' flamboyance and general atmosphere of outrageousness, is even more exaggerated. Whilst this is a positive and gives us plenty of genuine laugh out loud moments, I also think that perhaps it makes it difficult for the reader to take any part of the story seriously.
However, Drama Muscle is also a mystery and Nicky and Noah are once again required to use their theatrical skills to play Sherlock and Watson. By the beginning of chapter four, there have already been 3 suspicious deaths and Joe Cosentino points the finger at every character left alive. As we are left pondering who the probable murderer is, we also wonder who on earth would choose to live in Treemeadow with its alarming crime rate!
The success of Drama Muscle is also down to the characters Joe Cosentino creates. It is no mistake that the Physical Education professors are named "Brick Strong", "Van Granite" and "Cheryl Stryker".
The bodybuilding competitors are cast as Gods and Goddesses; Nicky and Noah as the kings (or should that be Queens?) of organizing the show and Noah's mother, Bonnie is firmly placed into the role of court jester by Joe Cosentino. Her photo-taking at every opportunity - on her iPad, no less - and subsequent comments from "Judy" leave us both giggling and rolling our eyes! Some of her one-liners are also the best in the story,
"I feel like Jessica Fletcher!"
Joe Cosentino does not give his readers a direct route to discovering the perpetrator's identity - and I really enjoy the twists, turns, red herrings and side events. The one thing about Drama Muscle is that by its conclusion we realize that there has been an underlying message all along.
Joe Cosentino offers his readers something original and very different to the generic contemporary M/M romances out there and I because of that I can't recommend Drama Muscle enough; it is another moment of genius by Joe Cosentino!
I received this as a complimentary copy, in exchange for an honest review.

Homes and Watson aka Nicky and Noah are on the case again to find the killer.
This book has a lot of characters involved that you'll have to constraint on who is who. Brilliantly written and entwined. I loved how Nicky and Noah finish each others sentences. Nicky's sleuthing around corners spying just might get him in trouble. Nicky is the Professor of Directing at Treemeadow Collage. Nicky was Noah's love also a Professor in Acting making a perfect team. The colleges annual bodybuilding comp was coming up and Nicky and Noah have been asked to help.. The winner receives a cup and free tuition which is huge. Things go haywire when one of the students is found dead, but that's only the start. Hang on to your chairs this is one hell of a book, and just wait when you get to the ending..
