Jesse's Diner is pure Cardeno goodness with a dash of CC hot sauce! A sweet but still spicy love story that might not get the adrenaline pumping in terms of edge of your seat excitement...but then it's not always about that is it? Sometimes you just want to unwind with something uncomplicated and I'd say Tanner and Steve's warmhearted romance is the perfect recipe for soothing the sresses of the day.
Twenty two year old virgin,Tanner, is an unassuming sweetie, and all man Steve, recent widower of Tanner's mentor and father of his bestie Mike, is one of those yummy older guys (well if thirty nine is older to you...to me that's a toy boy! Lol!) who makes you think "Okay...so where do I get me one of those!!!"
When Mike rings Tanner from college and asks him to check on his dad Steve, to see if he's doing okay after losing Jesse, his May to December partner of twenty years, it's the catalyst for quiet, shy Tanner to finally get more up close and personal with the gorgeous man who has been his long time crush from the moment he met him six years before.
Using food from the diner he's inherited from Jesse as an excuse to do Mikes bidding, he calls on Steve and the two of them share dinner together. Happy to just spend time with Steve anyway he can, it becomes a regular occurrence and as time passes they get closer. But bless him, it takes a slightly oblivious Tanner a while (and a VERY illuminating decorating session!!!) to realise that he's not the only one with romance on his mind....
It's not all fluffiness. There’s a more serious thread concerning Steve, running in the background, that didn’t spoil the story (far from it) but in retrospect is the only part that did leave me pondering a wee bit.Read more ›
I loved this book!
It was sweet and well written.
The romance was there along with the innocence of finding love.
However, the only thing that really deterred this book from being a 5 star for me was length. If that author had taken the time to develop more for me as a reader, by adding 30 or so more pages, then I would have come out very satisfied.
Sadly, I felt parts of slightly lacking due to the books length. Although the story itself was beautiful and sexy.
The sex itself in the book wasn't very erotic. But the parts that weren't actual sex, were.
I'm not sure if the author intended this or was afraid to write about a (spoiler alert) HIV gay man having sex- and maybe that's why the sex itself wasn't played with more. My mother is HIV positive so I've grown up more than 1/2 of my life dealing with the virus, which is one of the biggest reasons I read this book. I loved that the author didn't make it a huge deal with Steve and Mike, that she didn't give in to mass hysteria and ignorance and focused more on the two grown adults loving each other and willing to overcome an obstacle to be together. I give her huge Kudos for that!
I would highly recommend this book.
The only thing you need to understand as a reader is the book is short and will leave you mildly unsatisfied at the end, because you'll love it so much and need more.
P.S. To the author- Cardeno C- Please write a squeal to this. I'd love to read it. (Wishful thinking, I know, but I had to note it.)
There comes along, once in a while, a book that gives you the warm and fuzzy feeling that lasts for days. THIS is such a book.
Tanner noticed Steve right away, and kept his silence all this time, because Steve was in mourning. Steve also noticed Tanner, but not quite in the same way. That they did was picked up. A single phone call pushed them both over.
Its written entirely from Tanner's POV in the first person. Not my favourite, as you know. But here?? Don't care. Tanner is so deliciously young and naïve, so smitten with Steve, I don't care. Besides, Steve has a lot to say and he more than makes up for it.
Its only short, just under and hour and a half reading time for me, but it packs quite and warm and fuzzy punch. There is no drama, no break up/make up, no danger, no crime, none of that. What there, is a beautifully love story of two men falling in love. THATS IT!! BUT I mean this in a good way, a very good way.
It's not as explicit as some Cardeno C books, but again, a good thing. What is here, is beautifully written, deliciously told.
This is book two in the Hope series, you don't need to have read book one, Jared is mentioned, briefly, so we get none of Jared and Lucas. I do wonder if the sheriff is next, after his midnight phone call??
Thank you, for the warm and fuzzies.
I bought my ebook copy.
