I'll admit, I had a really difficult time with this book...to the point where I considered not finishing it a few times. The problem...there are a LOT of characters and it was seriously difficult (for me) to keep sorted who was who. I kept having to stop and go back to sort through who was who, which made it really difficult to get into the story. Eventually I did settle into it, though. Note: If I hadn't been completely enamored with this entire series, I don't think I would have stuck with it.
So, this story...Nate is part of the Wolf's Landing crew. He works on special effects and there's some history to his backstory of how he got here...after burning all his bridges in Hollywood. Nate is asexual and doesn't think he'll ever find anyone else again who he connects with enough to make a real relationship work.
Seth grew up in Bluewater Bay. He has quite a reputation around town that was somewhat unfairly earned. He's seen as flighty, although that's not really fair to him either. He's never been in a real relationship. The guys he dates don't see him as a forever kind of guy. The town of Bluewater Bay...including most of his family...really underestimate him.
There were lots of themes/plot lines to this book that had great potential, but were never fully fleshed out...Nate's history in Hollywood and his blowout there, Seth's dream of being a great bartender. I wanted more from these, but in the end they seemed to be brushed aside with just a sentence or paragraph of explanation. There was also no real resolution for the story line at the small theater and the guys' possible future there...which was an obvious solution to some parts of the story line.
Overall, this was an unsatisfying read. I really liked both guys and thought their conflict had the most potential of all the various story lines in the book. It was almost like the authors tried to put too much into the story and it all got lost because of that, which is a shame because I did really like both Nate and Seth and how things work between the two of them.
So, not a great review...which I hate, but I do love this world and the glimpses we got behind the scenes of the special effects both on the tv set and in other venues.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, LGBTQIA
Bluewater: I love this series, so many different authors bringing fresh story-lines and ideas keep it fresh even though its got loads of books in now.
It could get messy, could lose continuity but whoever checks overall management of that does it perfectly. each book has cameos but characters from other reads but even though they are characters created by someone else they always manage to keep their same "voice~" and personality, and that makes it feel so right to me. Like meeting old friends once more.
I don't know much about characters that are not on the mainstream side sexually, and Grace (grey asexual) is a term I'd never heard of. Still, that's the beauty of fiction, reading about so many different people, different issues and problems means its always new and interesting.
I like to imagine What would I do if placed where a character is having difficulties, and when they're like this it means some deep thinking.
What "I" want isn't what "they" want so I need to look sideways. Reminded me of Animal Welfare Law at uni, just because we enjoy being inside by the fire on a cold wet day doesn't mean its the right thing for a fish, he/she doesn't want to be inside by the fire but needs to be out in the water, regardless of weather and temperature.
I enjoyed too the way it wasn't kind of preachy and prickly, as so many books are - not just about sexuality but any kind of discrimination, anyone who's not quite on the middle section of "normal". I know some disabled people who are very prickly and easily offended and that happens in life, but I don't want to read it all the while, even though as a disabled person myself I understand it. After all reading is for many an escape from real life and its issues.
Still, that said things need to be handled realistically, I need to feel the characters and issues are real and that's was so perfect here.
I learned a lot form Nate, from seeing what he felt. He was a lovely man, and his dog, Tarkus, well he was such a star!! #tarkusisastar.
Nate had been in two relationships before, both ended badly and he's given up on finding a third one.
Then he meets Seth. That first meeting doesn't go well...and was so understandable. I so felt for both when the penny dropped. Still, they become freinds, mainly via Seth's search for history about his family, and Nate's interest in genealogy.
We meet both sets of families, and poor Seth, lovely nan, on the fence dad and a viperous mother and uncle. The parents and uncle hold the purse strings, and while nan wants to sell up the family home and move to somewhere more suitable for her age, they don't want it, won't allow it.
Poor Seth draws the short string with them too, always being ridiculed for his bar-tending job, and they insinuate its by their good grace he gets his apartment over the garage free. Seem to forget that he's been solely responsible for the upkeep of the whole building, for looking after nan and ensuring she's well. Nice people...not!
After a while Nate's astonished to discover he has real feelings for Seth. What to do though? Take the risk of more and lose it, or lose the potential of more and settle for freinds. How will he feel if Seth moves on? What if Seth doesn't return his feelings? What if he does!
So many questions and they lead us a lovely dance into a slowly growing romance.
Though I loved all that, I found the side issue, the house and all its history, the family issues where Nan was prevented from selling, were a bit confusing and kind of muddied the water. At times that felt like a totally different story, and though there was interest in it and what they found, it didn't mesh well with the main story for me.
Stars: Four, a great read, sensitively done.
