Heading out from Sarasota for the peace of Key West pro baseball player Devin Carter feels the tension of being on the cusp of a world record slip away the further he drives with his pup Rusty by his side. Intent on taking the time to rest his sore knee Devin sees a sign for the Blue Paradise when he hits Islamorado and decides to stop.
The little cabin he’s assigned is sparse, but it suits Devin’s simple needs perfectly for some quiet time. Walking Rusty along the beach he comes across the owner’s grandson Jim Dellwood working on his college thesis. A discreet interlude with an intelligent man is an opportunity Devin appreciates. They both agree it’s simply scratching an itch, yet a bond begins to form they’d like to further explore even when Devin goes home.
Agreeing to an open relationship proves a mistake when Devin hooks up with the team’s newest ballplayer and the man fixates on him. The seeds of love in one corner and the seeds of madness in the other with Devin firmly in the middle make for a dangerous situation.
Sensual without being overly graphic, The Blue Paradise is a hot modern day romance. The Blue Paradise delivers drama, suspense, and a love story that realistically develops between two men. Devin handles the twists and turns in his life perhaps a tad too stoically, but it certainly doesn’t take away from the overall plotline. A well written page turner, everyone should plan a trip to The Blue Paradise.
