Author Name & Publisher: Alexis Woods (Beaten Track)
Publication Date & Length: April 1, 2015 – 65 pgs
The upcoming Passover celebration is a time of joy and excitement for Darren. He’s meeting Ace’s family for the first time, but when he discovers his ex is one of Ace’s oldest friends, bitter enemies are forced to face off. With friends and family joining together for dinner to celebrate this Spring ritual, braving the plagues of Exodus, Dare has to ride out the waves of miscommunication and understanding, discomfort and pleasure, if he wants to have a chance of saving his and Ace’s future together.
This is book #2 in the Southern Jersey Shores series, and while it can be read as a stand-alone book, the stories are best read in sequence.
I enjoyed this short story in the series just as much as I did he first book in this series. Darren and Ace continue to get closer to one another despite the unexpected interference of Ace’s best friend and Darren’s ex Seth.
I think that Seth only tries to put a wedge between Ace and Darren because he is upset with himself that he let Darren go. I think that is why he is so nasty to him. I guess he thinks if he can’t have him then he might as well be a butt to him. I also think that by Darren standing up for himself to Seth he realizes what it is that he gave up.
Ace’s dad is a trip and he makes this book so funny. He comes up with different quips for everything and some of his jokes are not so funny and he literally sticks his foot in his mouth but I think it is done so innocently and no harm meant.
I cannot wait to read the next book in this series and again I hope it will include Ace and Darren.
Starlight and Constellation: Gemini is “out of the closet,” free, and ready for reading.

Always an avid reader and colorful dreamer, it was only a matter of time before taking pen to paper, oftentimes literally. A firm believer in every song tells a story and every story has a song, I sing under my breath, tap my toes and swing my hips, much to the delight of my co-workers and friends. I freely admit that becoming a romance author is the best mid-life crisis a girl could ever have.
