Sunburned Delaware native Dale Seward spends his summers wrangling lifeguards and cracking crabs. His winters are a whole lot colder.
Nico Travelli’s never even seen the ocean, but when his family’s plans for him get derailed, he realizes his future in their upscale Italian restaurants might be over, and it’s time for something new. He’s hypnotized by his first look at the Atlantic—until a wave takes him out. Luckily, Dale’s there to pull him to safety.
Dale knows better than to fall for a summer person, but that doesn’t mean he can’t show Nico a good time. Between the ice cream cones and the put-put golf, these two lonely hearts soon find themselves in over their heads.
But when Nico is tempted by a second chance at the life he always thought he wanted, will he be brave enough to give it up for the possibility of true love with Dale? And what does the sexy lifeguard do during the winter? In a state as small as Delaware, secrets are bound to come out.
States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.
3.5✨s – Two sweet stories in a row! The States of Love series brings another tale of love in the beauty of the Delaware shore.
A few things that still weren’t quite resolved-did Nico mean to harm himself? Had Dale truly been around the block? Even with things left unsaid or unanswered this was low heat, a little bit predictable and cheesy! Dale the mega hot and built bottom and Nico the unsure but finds his groove top. It works.
Again the scenery plays a big part in their story. Now off to plan a shore trip!
