Publisher's Summary

Justin Foster has 19 years of nothing but trouble behind him. After escaping his abusive father, he finds himself in Rock Bay, Washington, with his cousin Travis. Justin is bruised and has a hard time trusting, but with the help of his family and the small town, he might be able to heal.
Logan O'Brien is also new in town, hoping he can finally get away from his past and the memories of the girlfriend who shattered his heart. It doesn't take him long to realize Rock Bay can be more than safe harbor: It can also be home. And for the first time in his life, he finds himself captivated by a man - by Justin.
Justin is attracted to Logan, too, but he's also wary. Physically, Logan reminds him a bit too much of the closeted jerks who used to beat him up after school. But after one awkwardly amazing kiss, he's smitten, despite how his past and insecurities continue to haunt him. Logan's love, faith, and stubbornness are just what Justin needs to believe their love is worth fighting for.

Sweet but disappointing

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and thought this third one would be just as good. It is a classic hurt/comfort story. Justin is a young man who has been abused most of his life by his father. The abuse was severe, almost killing him at one point. The reason for the abuse is very simplistically stated as homophobia, but the father's action definitely scream more was at play. Logan is the protector, straight guy that develops a crush on Justin. There is A LOT of angst and the MCs don't get together until well pass the midway point of the book. The basic romance is sweet, but I was very disappointed in the resolution of the father issue and some of Justin's actions.

When I read about an abuse victim in books, usually it leads to some type of growth on the characters part by confronting the abuser or overcoming the demons. I didn't really get that in this book. Without giving spoilers, I will just say I was disappointed about this aspect. Also some of Justin's actions bordered on TSTL. The best part about this book was the narrator. He does a fantastic job, as he did in the first book. It was also great to see the entire Rock Bay gang again playing supporting roles.

Sweet & Tender

This is the third book in the Rock Bay series and I've listened to each one on audio. The stories of the men and their friends have each been sweet and written in O'Shea's tender telling. The narrator was a good choice to convey the emotions packed into the stories. I couldn't help but connect with the characters, especially these two men. Logan has been a secondary character since book one, and it was wonderful to see him find his HEA. Justin, though just introduced to us, melded right into the group of friends that I now feel I know - and like.

This book -heck, the entire series- is a good read for the lighter, sweeter summer months.
