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?

Cozzi Cove: Bouncing Back contains adult content suitable for mature readers only.




 Heartbreaking and heartwarming, sweet beginnings for some, sour endings for others, emotions jumping off the page as you turn eagerly to read more, welcome to Cozzi Cove. The author measured his scales to perfection in delivering the perfect balance of love, laughter and tears in this sexy, fun filled holiday romance entwined with some sadness.

Summer magic waved it’s wand at all who visited and stayed at Cozzi Cove and I was one of those who wanted to stay.
Joe Cosentino never does a one-man show, he has too many characters shouting at him, all wanting to be included and as he never wants to disappoint, he includes then all. In this book, we are introduced to –

Mario and Chris – two young men who could so easily fall in love with each other but does Mario have another side to him that Chris hasn’t seen yet or more importantly, likes?

Greg and Josh – still so much in love after 30 years but concerned that their son maybe – horror of horrors – straight!

Arthur – the accident prone, sun allergic, graphic designer and his….merman? nothing is as it seems, or is it?
Mark and Tim – sad but so readable storyline.
Sean and Chuck – the 60 year old, OCD virgin and the I-don’t-want-to-be-a-porn-star-anymore actor.

Cal and Lance – the owners of Cozzi Cove and so much in love with each other and their cove.

Connor – the outrageous flirt/man slut, who is happy going from one hook-up to the next and always on the lookout for the “next”.

Every character, enhanced by Joe Cosentino’s unique magical style, sprinkled their love dust over Cozzi Cove, bringing it to life, where it bloomed and flourished.

I loved every word – the sexy ones, the humorous ones, the plain and simple love ones and even the sad ones, they all added up to a joyous and memorable read.

Five big fat stars from me.
