Blog Tour: Starfish and Coffee by Kele Moon

Starfish and Coffee
By Kele Moon

Synopsis: 
On the island where they first met two lovers from opposite sides of the tracks are reunited. Now jaded and broken, Alex and Matt still can’t deny their sizzling connection or the memories of one perfect, uninhibited year together. 

At twenty-two, Matt Tarrington is rich, good-looking and destined to be powerful, but behind that confident exterior lurks a man who resents the life his family thrust upon him. Desperate for an escape, Matt heads to Mirabella Island off the coast of Florida for a year of relaxation and some wild nights with vacationing party-girls. 

Matt never expected to find real passion in the arms of Alex Hunter, a handsome, laid-back local. 

Alex is gay, but closeted. Matt should be completely off limits, but Alex finds the deeply in denial rich boy too tempting to ignore. Especially when a bet has them working together, fighting the heat in the rundown, beachside cafe where Alex sweats for every dollar. 

Their love felt inevitable until youth left them vulnerable to hatred and greed. Now after six years of hating the lies they live, Alex and Matt will have to risk it all for the second chance they both desperately need.

Viviana's Review:
This is my first M/M I've read. Granted, I've read several other books that have characters in M/M relationships but never a full length novel. For me though, it's not about where its M/M or F/M/ or F/F or M/M/F or F/F/M or well, you get the combinations! Its about the story! The relationship between two people! Of course, the journey to their happily ever after!!


When I first noticed/saw "Starfish and Coffee" on Goodreads, my first thought was "that's an interesting title" and I'll tell you my second thought just for fun - "Man, those guys are hot!". Well, they are. Both on the cover and in the book! The title will make total sense when you read the book!

The author does a fantastic job of writing their story and making you able to relate in one manner or another! The synopsis does a great job of telling you what the story is about. However, reading the book brings the emotions to forefront and you'll get to know some great characters.

Both Alex and Matt are great characters who are smart, independent, witty, and sexy! They each have their own thing going on and successful within their own rights. I love the interaction between them both and not just when they are in the relationship. Even as they were friends and getting to know each other, it was great to see that ease of conversation and that connection between them both!

Even the supporting characters were interesting! Kele did a great job with making everything well rounded and inclusive that everything contributes to making the story better. Holly is Alex's best friend and Will is Alex's brother. They are both major parts of Alex's life. One knows Alex's secret, while the other has no clue. They also have thing for each other. I definitely would love to read and get to know their story! Hint Hint Kele!!

This is a great read and I will be adding Kele's other books to my TBR Mountain!

About the Author

A freckle faced, redhead born and raised in Hawaii, Kele Moon has always been a bit of a sore thumb and has come to enjoy the novelty of it. She thrives off pushing the envelope and finding ways to make the impossible work in her story telling. With a mad passion for romance, she adores the art of falling in love. The only rules she believes in is that, in love there are no rules and true love knows no bounds.

So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it she’s lost in her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark, handsome, brooding hero who had infinite patience for her airy ways and attempts to keep her grounded. When she leaves her keys in the refrigerator or her cell phone in the oven he’s usually there to save her from herself. The two of them now reside in Florida with their three beautiful children who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal parts–They wouldn’t have it any other way.
