Gregg fully develops the characters of Buck and Ari (and secondary characters such as little brother Charlie and coffee shop owner Tori) in such a short space that I feel like I just read a much longer novel. This includes moments from their childhood that were woven in naturally. Though both Ari and Buck are still in their early twenties, and young enough to make dumb mistakes, I never rolled my eyes or felt that the moments between them were too angst-ridden. At the same time, even though each of them had devastating personal histories, Gregg makes the characters shaped by these histories rather than weighed down by them.
Though some elements of the plot not related to the interplay between Buck and Ari received short shrift at the end, I was more than satisfied with the conclusion as a moment when the future looks bright. I hope to see more of these characters as my journey through Bluewater Bay progresses.
This book is about childhood friends Buck and Ari, who meet at about age nine or ten, and are inseparable from that point on until their senior year in high school. Ari vanishes close to graduation, the same day Buck's mom dies suddenly. Now, five years later, Ari is back, and is part of the cast of the TV series being filmed there. And he has bought the house next door to Buck and his little brother Charlie.
The rest of the story is heartbreaking, learning what these two young men endured, the resposibilities Buck shouldered because of Charlie, the frightening life Ari was dealt because of his neurotic mother, all while neither one of them were able to express the reality of their feelings for each other.
I really loved Buck and Ari and they do have a happy ending of sorts. I just need MORE! I want to know what happens in the next year or three. I really hope the other authors carry on the stories of these first two books and intertwine all the characters, much like theTV series do. If so, Bluewater Bay will be an awesome collaboration of storytellers and I, for one, will read every one of them.
This was an easy read in one sitting. A box of memories brought me to tears.

I did enjoy this book, although it was a lot shorter than book one. Also I expected Wolf's Landing to be an integral part of the story with cast members playing a bigger part in Ari and Buck's tale, however, although it was mentioned, it was only in passing which was a bit disappointing. If you've read my previous reviews, you will know I'm a sucker for a series which has the characters popping up in every book.
Ari left Bluewater Bay, left his best friend and seemed to go on an adventure… Five years later he is back, he hopes his best friend has forgiven him….
Buck had it all, full scholarship, loving family and his best friend who he loves with all his heart…. In one day his whole life went to hell, his mom dies, he has a young brother to raise and his best friend has gone….
Five years is a long time for Buck to be angry and hurt but he never forgot his childhood love. Ari is back, he came home, he back to Buck, who finds it hard to forgive and forget. To make matters worse Ari buys the house next door to Buck. Neither know the other is gay. Theres a lot of bickering and silly squabbles, you would think they were still kids.
I found Ari very sweet, seemed to forgive Buck for everything. Buck was an ass through most of the book, I wanted to give him a shake and yell lighten up… He does eventually but then the book ends! I would of liked a little more even if it was just a couple of pages….
Well written short story with a nice storyline but no plot. It was a good read and I would recommend to those who want a light quick read.
Great story, another great romance in this series. Short novel and unlike my other reviewing friends, I liked the ending, I didn't see any point in dragging out the plot further, when all had been accomplished.
Tiny, weeny bit of sex, so short blink and you'll miss it. Great prologue, almost started crying then and there, and yes it was another weepy for me.
Loved it. Five weepy stars.
