Rezension zu "Safe Harbor (Pine Cove Book 1) (English Edition)" von HJ Welch
After being so excited about Thin Ice, I have now started the Pine Cove series all over again.
Robin and his friend are looking for a new roommate. Their choice falls on Dair Epping, a former Marine who now fixes cars.
Then, when a reunion for his high school comes up, Robin is less than thrilled to run into his abusive ex. The easiest solution is to ask Dair to come along. It would be even better if Dair could pretend to be his boyfriend. He could protect Robin, and besides, Dair has no idea about Robin's secret crush on him.
But what if the protective instinct turns into something more?
I really enjoyed this audiobook. The two protagonists were likeable and you just have to like them. I couldn't always understand Robin's behavior, for example when he let his ex wrap him around his finger so easily.
Dair's behavior I could understand and sympathize with and it was foreseeable that it gets complicated when feelings come into play. You could feel Dair's budding feelings right away as you listened. The chemistry between Robin and Dair is great and it sizzles right away. Dair has a huge heart, but is that enough? And what if Robin's ex wants him back?
The story was entertaining and exciting, especially towards the end, the events have overturned. But not only the main protagonists convinced me, I also liked the secondary protagonists. Robin's family is just wonderful.
I was wonderfully entertained and could not put the audio book down.
This was due to the combination of HJ Welch and Nick J. Russo. Absolutely brilliant! Nick J. Russo reads just great, he knows how to captivate the listener. He has a great voice and knows how to use it skillfully and bring the emotions closer to the listener. Great job!
