"The romance was a slow burn, as is fitting for a-spec people, and it was friends to lovers, which is a favorite of mine. I loved the historical aspects and how Nate and Seth worked together to research Seth's family, both for personal interest and to help his grandma out of a difficult situation with her sons. There was also a lot of character development in both main characters, as well as some of the side characters, which was really fun to watch even if I experienced secondhand embarrassment for some of it. Also, I loved watching their relationship develop from friendship to relationship. The progression of friendship to companionship and closeness to sexuality and intimacy was so beautiful, and it really resonated with me, as someone who is a-spec." --Small Queer, Big Opinions
"Due to Nate's sexuality, the slow burn of friendship to romance in this book was sweet rather than overtly sexy. The necessary romantic conflict at the end was a realistic breakdown in communication caused by Seth and Nate's very different life experiences. Like most of my favorite Bluewater Bay books so far, the couple didn't exist in a vacuum. The secondary characters in this story, such as Nate's BFF Morgan and Seth's delightful grandmother, really brought this tale to life. " --J.L. Gribble

Despite the revitalization thanks to the "Hollywood invasion," this book really brought to life the fact that the town of Bluewater Bay was around long beforehand. I enjoyed learning more about the town's history, especially because the Larson story brought to life some of the darker aspects of American history that should not be forgotten.

I did struggle a bit with this book. Maybe too many real-world distractions kept me reading only a few pages at a time. But then a great book is supposed to take you away from your surroundings. For that, this one felt like a school reading assignment I needed to finish by Halloween. Which I did, so there’s that. 3.0 for solo frisbee: dog style
So I can't really complain. But this one really missed the boat, and I found myself asking "Wait, what?" a lot ... chapter 3 being an example of the confusing and disjointed story telling here. Yikes!
Here's hoping book 18 gets back on track. I am not giving up just yet on Bluewater Bay.
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.
