Beneath the famous Brooklyn landmark, love is hidden but not denied: All his life, Alexi Kharpov has dreamed of traveling to unknown exciting places instead of working at his family’s frozen custard stand on the famous Coney Island boardwalk. Every year is the same until a gorgeous man picks a spot in front of his stand to sing, captivating him with his beautiful voice. After two summers of listening, it might finally be time for him to cross that boardwalk and take a chance.
Opera singer Cameron Maxwell has traveled the world, but the sight of the beautiful man serving custard to tourists touches his heart like nothing ever has before. A summer fling might be exactly what he needs to put his problems out of his mind, but the last thing Cam expects is to want the summer to last forever.
It’s a season of discovery for both men who learn to dig deep within their heads and hearts to decide whether secrets old and new should remain buried, or if love is too important to keep hidden under the boardwalk.

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.
I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

A beautiful love story beautifully written with amazing characters.
If you're looking for a book with a lot of explicit sex scenes that make up the majority of the story, look somewhere else. But if you're looking for a book that has substance, real life settings, main characters that genuinely care for and support each other no matter what, this is the book for you.
One of the things I like about Under the Boardwalk is the small number of supporting characters. Some novels I've read made me feel like I was reading Tolstoy's War and Peace.
Rather than reading the book, I strongly recommend listening to the audio book. The characters really come to life and it's very easy to get drawn into the story. The narrator does an awesome job bringing the characters to life with subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) nuances, right down to and including Alexi's Russian accent.
If you like to read, read it. If you like to listen, listen to it, but do one or the other. You won't be disappointed.
Definitely 5 out of 5 stars!
