Love on the Jersey Shore

Love on the Jersey Shore - Richard Natale imageimageimageimageimage

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!!!!

This book was soooo refreshing, addictive, romantic! I like every minutes of it!

A magic word-> EXPECTATIONS. A tricky word. I, honestly, didn't have ANY in regard to this book.

Maybe because of the reserved reviews (WHY?!), or because of the blurb(the book is much better!), or because it was qualified as a contemporary romance (I was disappointed often enough).
Yes, I, a passionate romance reader in the past, has mutated to a picky complaining Romance Reader, because in spite of a large choice of different MM romance books on the market, they seldom offer something new IMO, and leave me often craving for SOMETHING I couldn't find there. THIS novel gave me EVERYTHING I needed.

AND if all romance books were like this one, I would read solely romance books, I swear!

It is a bit of family saga(two Italian-American cousins who are very closed, they are actually like brothers) , a bit of Cinderella story ( in a double pack), fantastic characters (not only the main characters but also the second characters are portrayed impressively), sexual tension(hmmmmmmm...), great writing (at the middle of the book I went to the author's profile and added all his works to my TBR), a beautiful and satisfying final!

Honestly, I don't remember when I last time had tears in my eyes reading a book, not because the plot was heart-breaking, but because I was just happy.


Highly highly recommended!
