Bobby McGrath's Christmas trip to the beautiful Italian island of Capri to meet his eccentric extended family offers stunning views - none more stunning than his third cousin, Paolo Mascobello, a real stocking stuffer. As the two young men embark on a relationship, Bobby, a driven law student, learns to relax and bask under the Italian moon, and Paolo realizes there's more to life than a frolic on the beach. For the two to find everlasting amore, Paulo must overcome his fear of commitment and learn to follow his dreams, and Bobby must get his wish for happily ever after.

I love to read any genre and most topics. I like diversity and engaging characters. I write, garden, cook,craft and chill with my furbabies
If you love gay romance and want something short and sweet, this will satisfy that sweet tooth craving. Once again Joe has written a lovely story of two young men exploring love and a beautiful island. I felt like I was on tour with Paolo and Bobby. I could see the lovely sites as Joe described them with such beauty and prose. I could feel the growing desire between the two young men and the heat building as well.
Another thing I like about Joe Cosentino's stories is that they are sexy though most of the sex is off the page. It leaves a beautiful dynamic to the romance.
Add in Joel Leslie's narrating skills and it takes this great story to a whole new level of awesomeness. Joel brings each character to life and makes the off-page sex hot and sexy.
if you are looking for a short, listen to fill an hour or so grab this and take a beautiful trip to Italy and never leave your home, or car or wherever you listen from!
3.5 rounded up for great narration.
This is a very short and sweet listen. There is a little angst and due to its length, a little insta love, but I enjoyed the audiobook version. Joel Leslie's accents and characterizations really kept me engaged in Bobbi and Paolo's courtship. Even the HFN ending felt satisfying and I would look forward to hearing whether their potential relationship works out.
"Warm and sexy holiday treat"
This was a short and sweet Christmas romance made all the more enjoyable by the description of Capri. The way Joe has written the romance and Joel's narration is so well done you can close your eyes and picture it all. Bobby and Paulo's romance is sweet but not too much and leaves you with a positive feeling for their future.
Joel Leslie's narration is perfect. He brings out the emotions in the narrative so well that it enhances the story, especially with his sexy Paulo voice. Not to mention his skill bringing secondary characters to the front, overall made it perfect to listen to.
Great to listen to any time of year. I recommend treating yourself to this story.
