This was a short but sweet read. I was having some trouble getting into several books and was frustrated by every book being a stinker. THIS book however was not a stinker. I needed the instant lust between the characters and I love the dynamics of the town and the people in it. This is the first book I have read by this author but not the last, I can’t wait for the next book.

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: M/M Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This was my first read from Ms. Lynne and I must say I know without a doubt it will not be my last. I loved Welcome to Lobster Cove.

Lobster Cove is a town that is being redeveloped as a LGBTQ friendly community. After Boone's mother dies leaving him with custody of his special needs brother, his current boyfriend Michael can't handle the changes and leaves Boone. Boone decides that getting out of the city is what's best for both of them.

Boone gets a job working for Dante, who is opening a small restaurant. Their attraction is immediate but things from Dante's past keep him from falling completely. Their journey is sweet but has its bumps along the way.

I loved Laddy's character and I loved that the author included his special needs within the story. It's not something you would think you would find in an m/m or any romance story for that matter, but it added to the story and completely worked. The interactions with Laddy showed you that sometimes it's the simple things that make you smile. It did make me emotional at times and I may have shed a few tears. Overall a great read!

I will definitely be adding more of Ms. Lynne's titles to my TBR list!

This is first of Ms. Lynne's books I've read in quite a while and I'm kicking myself for omitting her from my TBR pile. When I first started reading M/M erotica, I devoured her books as soon as I was able to download them. That being said, I found other sub-genres and, well, you know how that goes.

When I saw that the blog had the opportunity to review one of Ms. Lynne's books, I immediately said yes without even reading the blurb. I admit, I'm having a fan girl moment!!!

On to the review.

Lobster Cove is a town that is going to be a community like Cattle Valley (I must admit, I haven't read the Cattle Valley books, but they will soon be downloaded to my Kindle) in that it will be LBGTQ friendly.

Boone Jensen is looking for a new start. His mother has passed away, he's now the guardian of his teenage brother, Landon a/k/a Laddy, and his lover of three years left him because he didn't want the responsibility of caring for a teen. When he hears about Lobster Cove, he and Laddy set out for this little town in Maine, hoping that a fresh start will do both of them a world of good.

Dante Madia has just sold the one thing that he was most proud of: the restaurant that bore his name. His best friend, Scott, had embezzled money from him for years and when he disappeared, so did most of Dante's cash. Left with restaurant and little else, Dante pins all his hopes in Lobster Cove.

Boone and Dante have instant attraction and yet both are wary because of the hurts they have both faced in the past. Ms. Lynne did an excellent job of walking the reader through this complex relationship. Boone doesn't want to rush into anything because he doesn't want to confuse his brother and Dante's trust issues are easy to spot.

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more about the life and loves of Lobster Cove.

An avid reader for years, one day Carol Lynne decided to write her own brand of erotic romance. Carol juggles between being a full-time mother and a full-time writer. These days, you can usually find Carol either cleaning jelly out of the carpet or nestled in her favourite chair writing steamy love scenes.
