Flagler Beach Florida is quite the small town, eclectic and quirky... and filled with many unique characters. And JandJ Fitness has more than its share of locals who are enjoying a perfect Sunday in town with exercise and so much more!
The third book in the Flagler Beach Fiction series. Contemporary Fiction and a fun beach read! Includes 10 short stories set in JandJ Fitness!

I am so in love with this series of books . Just a nice listen to. Great stories and good characters i have to know more. will be buying the rest of these books
Here we are in book three of the Flagler Beach Series, J and J Fitness. Follow along with more comical quirky stories that tantalize our ears. I think so far this book is my favorite. There are many little short stories all surrounding the J an J Fitness Center as a theme. Each book of this series surrounds a business in the tourist town of Flagler Beach. My favorite story in this book was listening to Hank and Neil carry on about how Hank is a player pretending to be married to avoid relationships. The banter between Hank and Neil was hilarious.
Another notable section was about Eric and his drinking problem. While the book tackles many problems light-heartedly, it does address problems in every day life for many people.
The author, Armand Rosamilia once again did a great job gaining my interest and keeping it. The plot was great and held many laughs. The narrator, Jack De Golia once again delivered another flawless book with his many voices and accents. Kudos to you both!
I liked that Jenna and Jared are proud of their faith but at the same time don't push it on their clients. If the client believes that's great and if not, well that was fine with them too.
This is book 3 is a series of books. I liked the fact that Mr. de Golia has been able to keep the continuity of the characters and the pacing in each of the 3 books.
J and J Fitness is book 3 in the Flagler Beach Series. Each book takes place on one day and based at one location. Book 1 Kokomo's Cafe/Friday, Book 2 The Golden Lion Cafe/Saturday and now Book 3 on Sunday. The clients of J and J Fitness are some of the minor characters from the previous 2 books and some new characters too. I like how Mr. Rosamilia references story lines from the previous books. Since this book takes place on Sunday there is a under tone of religion/faith but it isn't overwhelming and fits with the characters of the owners of the gym.
I look forward to listening to next book to see what happens with some of the new characters we met in this book. I would recommend this book to my friends who 'want to go to the beach' and enjoy short stories.
Post apocalyptic listener with some thrillers mixed in. Follow me on twitter at @drewsant
Another great addition to the crazy folks from Flagler beach. This edition of the series seems to focus even more on the interpersonal relationships of the characters. Combine this with the story taking place in a gym, it doesn’t have the beachy feel that the other books in the series have but otherwise it’s a great addition to the series.
