MC Billy Ballaw is a incredibly hard working construction worker with a heart of gold. He gives half of his salary to his parents, after his dad suffered a heart attack and could no longer work. He helped put his sister through college. He coaches a little league team because he feels it's important to have a safe place for children to explore their interests without the fear of bullying and he always shows up for the family dinner at his parent's place every Sunday. He also has two cats which he absolutely adores, which just clinched the deal for me. Just a regular guy that anyone would love. And, boy, did I fall for him! On top of his personally-plus persona, he is a hulking 6'5" of gorgeous man meat.
MC Chase "Shaz" Phillips is a professional stylist. He owns his own business where he treats his employees like family, usually thinking of their welfare before his own. After being thrown out by his biological family at the tender age of 16 for being gay, he has worked hard to make a place for himself in this world. He is extremely flamboyant and makes absolutely no excuses for his exaggerated homosexuality. He has been looking for his heroic Knight to rescue his from the proverbial tower since he first realized he was gay. He finds that Knight in Billy.
This story was a absolutely enchanting journey of Billy discovering his true sexually at the age of 25 and how he and Shaz meet and fall in love. The warm-fuzzies will be slapping you in the face at every turn and I found myself with a huge, silly grin on my face many, many times as I read this. Incredibly low angst, this is a perfect book for anyone who needs an easy, feel-good book to pull them out of a crappy mood. Bonus points for the hot sex!!
I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND Knight of Ocean Avenue to all lovers of M/M romance. The only thing missing was an epilogue, but author Tara Lain has a sequel Knave of Broken Hearts in the works featuring Billy's good friend Joe, so I know we will see this boys again.
However, there's more (she typed, grinning). There's the great cast of characters, including two male cats, the assumptions/presumptions that can monkey-wrench even the most promising of attractions used herein to GREAT effect, the harm adults can do to children that have lasting effects into adulthood, shown with a touching compassion I'm in awe of. And, there are sincerely great sex scenes full of humor and sweetness and none of the rote "plunk gay sex scene here" writing I see often enough that this? Makes me hop up and down and yell READ THIS ONE!
