Cozzi Cove: Bouncing Back by Joe Cosentino
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Cozzi Cove: Bouncing Back
Cozzi was a fun read. It reminded me of a sitcom. Cozzi Cove is a vacation destination that is 7 bungalows. You get an insight into Cal's life, who runs the resort and all of the vacationers. There lighthearted funny times and some serious heartbreaking moments. Each guest, mostly couples, are dealing with different issues in their relationship and we are a like a fly on the wall watching inside each bungalow.
I felt particularly connected to Cal. There were some beautiful poignant moments with him. Cal is clever, sweet, funny and loyal.
"In those stories, Jesus love, ate with, and served everyone. He defended the downtrodden, and was a hero to the poor and the misfits. Using those stories to try to take away someone's humanity and civil rights is the sin, not being born gay."
Joe Cosentino hits all the feels in Bouncing Back, even though most of them are short lived since the story jumps from bungalow to bungalow. You won't sit and bawl but will definitely feel a stir in your heart region.
Cosentino's writing is well done and clever, if a bit dated at times. I enjoyed this story and all the characters involved. There are sex scenes but they are secondary and not the focus of the story.
