Blurb: On Cozzi Cove at the New Jersey shore, handsome Cal Cozzi’s seven bungalows are open for summer and love.
Mario and Harold are brothers and college students who happen to look alike, but couldn’t be more different: Mario is searching for love, and Harold is searching for lust. Josh and Greg, a wealthy older couple, are matchmakers for their son, Christopher.
When it comes to Connor, the maid, packed with muscles and a roving sponge, anything can happen. Opposites attract as wild Tim with the secret past meets shy Mark, and porn star Chuck Caliber connects with Sean, a virgin romance novelist.
And what will happen when computer-game designer Arthur has a midnight sea rendezvous with a merman? Even married Cal faces an emotional upheaval when a gay bashing turns into something quite unexpected.
What secrets and passions lie in magical Cozzi Cove?

Review: Where do I even begin? Bouncing back is the story of a resort called Cozzi Cove, run by Cal Cozzi. It I s also about the guests for this summer’s season as well.
In one Cabin we have Mario (remember him from infatuation?) and his twin Harold. We have a wealthy Gay couple whose son is coming for a visit as well. We have an OCD writer, a porn star, A man on his deathbed, a young waiter on vacation and a reclusive middle-aged gamer and a mermaid. (I will let you read and see if the Mermaid is real.) And we have some regulars as well. Cal’s sister Taylor, Carla, who runs the seafood restaurant in town and Tommy that owns the bar.
Quite a cast of characters. The story is like love boat on land.
I’m not going into detail about any coupling as that would be spoilers so I will let you grab a copy to see what all goes on. I will say each storyline is fabulous. Though this isn’t a mystery, I sat on the edge of my chair wondering who was going to fall for who and if it was all going to be happy endings.
If you like a lot of angst, some humor, love, sadness, (be sure to have a couple of boxes of tissue handy and some hot sensual man-sex I highly, highly recommend this book. I loved all of the Joe Cosentino’s books, but I think this is my favorite to date!
I am ready for book 2!
