BLURB: In Prospect Harbor, Maine, lobsterman Harper Cook has always loved the sea. He and his two brothers work the harbor waters, in a fishing village of one thousand where everybody knows everybody else’s business and nobody wants to be different.

When it’s time for the annual Men of Maine pinup calendar, Harper’s brothers eagerly volunteer him. Harper isn’t thrilled to bare it all to raise money for an elementary school playground—until he meets out-and-proud Los Angeles out-a-statah Sean Blackburn: the highly available first-grade teacher with Hollywood heartthrob looks.

Harper has no desire to ever stand out from the crowd, but Sean persists and earns Harper’s friendship. Through Sean, Harper opens up to new possibilities. Things get steamy, but Harper still protects his heart. Though   the right pressure in the right place might crack even a loner lobsterman out of his shell.

 States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.

 

leviI had so much fun reading this book! It made me giddy …

Harper is a lobsterman, if you don’t know what it is, I’m telling you, he is fishing lobsters, with his two younger brothers. The banter between the two siblings is hilarious. Why not between Harper and theme? It’s simple, Harper doesn’t talk …much… but he ends up being the butt of their joke. He is introvert and shy and he is hiding all of that behind a grumpy faces. Harper is gay, not in the open but in his village of thousand everybody knows. He knows they know but anyway … he is not out. Not that there are so many men available in that village though … until “Hollywood” arrives. Harper is experienced, don’t think he is not … uhhm watching porn counts, right?!

 Sean is a teacher directly from LA. He came to lick his wounds till he is ready to make the next step in his life. He confesses as much to Harper when they have a get together, talking about the annual Man of Main calendar. The money goes for school projects. Sean brings Harper out of his shell, quite spectacularly… hot! If you know what I mean 😉 …oh well of course you know …

 We read the story from Harper’s POV. He is funny (I mean his thoughts are funny) and romantic. To him the harbor is his kingdom, the lighthouse is his castle, and now finally it seems that his prince has arrived … but does he have enough courage to claim him …? So let me tell you what happens … Oh my God don’t tell me you fall for that?! Of course I’m not going to tell you! But I tell you this, the book is wonderful!
