From Notes to Narrative: Writing Ethnographies That Everyone Can Read eCoffee and Doughnutsarly this year I didn t remember much of the story blame my small capacity of memory term BUT I did remember liking Dino and Seth and had fun while reading their adventure So when I knew that there was a seuel I definitely decided that I would be on boardLike the 1st book this story still written from Dino s point of view This time Dino handles two cases at one time His mechanic boyfriend Seth though Dino still don t know whether boyfriend is the right term asks him if he can find nough proofs to help incriminate a low life guy named Frank who currently dating Seth s sister "Molly The Other Case Comes "The other case comes Dino s x wife Gigi who needs Dino s help and Doris Salcedo expertise as PI to find out why her restaurant seems to be a target of pranks This last case of course puts a little dent on Dino s relationship with Seth Dino and Gigi haven t met for ten years however Dino hasn t really been out and proud about his relationship with Seth as wellven if Dino has been bisexual all his life Working the case of an x doesn t sit well and dandy for Seth added with the fact that Dino is rather adamant on keeping their relationship below the radar including from the four older ladies in his apartmentThis is another FUN seuel and I think I will remember this than the first book lol Why Because I m a big fan of progress in relationship and this one has that While sometimes I get annoyed of Seth being pushy but at one point Dino needs a slap in the head for the way he handles his relationship situation I m so happy when the two guys decide to meet halfway because that s the mature thing to do As for the mysteries since this is taken from Dino s point of view we find out about the progress as Dino finds it It makes the story keeps on moving not as uickly but "STILL FLOWS NICELY I EVEN ENJOY THE SLIGHTLY REPETITIVE "flows nicely I ven Gods Choice enjoy the slightly repetitive of the PI work hey that s what PIs do Best part is the over the top mayhem near thend If in the 1st book it s all about the adventure of of stealing money and drugs at salvage yards this time is an all out brawls when Dino and Seth catching the bad guy responsible for Gigi s problem OMG I can imagine the all tangling hands and legs lol There is secondary character in the form of a loan shark Tony G whom I find interesting he cooks and hope to see if Elle Parker decides to make another book All in all this is a very good seuel Good writing likeable characters fun mystery over the top actions and clever dialogs The sex is not blatant and I love that Nothing annoys me most than smut marketed as romance Let s hope Elle Parker doesn t stop Dino and Seth s adventure here This seuel to Like Coffee and Doughnuts is another sweet occasionally poignant and funny adventure in the developing relationship between Dino a reliable private investigator and his friend turned boyfriend the mercurial mechanic Seth In the first book Dino acknowledged being bi and discovered his love for Seth but this is still a very new relationship For Dino who always walked on the straight side of bi the public face of a gay relationship is unfamiliar and sometimes uncomfortable Having his x girlfriend show up looking for help doesn t

"this one is "one is a very fun and Forgetful of Their Sex: Female Sanctity and Society, ca. 500-1100 enjoyable mm mystery romanceI do recommend reading Like Coffee and Doughnuts firstven though this seuel is a stand alone mystery You ll get way out of the character progression as well as see where Dino and Seth s relationship started if you read the first oneIn this one Dino is still figuring out what it means to be dating one s best friend as well as coming to grips with his bisexuality he s njoying all the perks but still is unsure of how to represent himself and coming out to others Seth is still as fiery and forthright as in the first book and his and Dino s chemistry is very spicy delicious Their back and forth and banter is really fun to read and their warm sexy comfortableness with ach other is very palpable It s also fun to watch Dino realize and how much he wants to be with Seth Runaway Wedding even though this new relationship is so different from what he s used toAlong with that Dino is being pulled between two mysteries one for hisx girlfriend Gigi whose restaurant is being vandalized and one for Seth who is trying to Wicked Loving Lies expose his sister s boyfriend as the nogoodnik that he is Dealing with both his past and current romances adds tension to the mix than Dino is wanting and he struggles to juggle his worklife balance as well as assuaging the worries of the suddenly insecure Seth who is less keen on watching the returningasy familiarity between Dino and GigiFortunately most of the conflict isn t about whether to return to once was but figuring out what s going on right now and along the way Dino faces culinary loan sharks saboteurs possessive strippers and his nosy yet hilarious Golden Girl neighbors My only niggle is that I do sometimes feel like Dino still over narrates and tells rather than shows in his first person POV but La heredera del mar even with that I still thoroughlynjoyed the book and highly recommend both it and the previous volumeAll and all a very fun read loved the continuing romance between Dino and Seth and I would definitely get in line to buy 3 in the series if it comes out Finally I totally adored the first book of the series Like Coffee and Doughnuts and have agerly awaited the seuel Like Pizza and Beer reads very similar to the first book with good characters a decent mystery and a solid step by step resolution that s interesting but without the crazy heroics that put mysteries over the top into ridiculous There s a few bumps in the road here but minor and those that liked the first book of the series will definitely be on board for the second You should read the books in order though to properly follow Dino and Seth s relationship but you can pick this up as a stand alone pre 35 StarsI liked this one much better than the first book Dino s x girlfriend the love of his life ten years prior shows up out of the blue asking for his help Her restaurant is being sabotaged and she s at wits nd about what to do Meanwhile Seth s sister is dating a loser and Seth wants Dino to dig up dirt on the jerk Between juggling the two cases Seth s jealousy and Dino s unwillingness to come out of the closet I found this book truly ngaging I like some angst in my mm reads and I got that here I also got to see motion from both Dino and Seth not a whole lot mind you but nough that the characters felt real as opposed to flat and one dimensional in Like Coffee and Doughnuts Likewise I felt some chemistry again not a whole lot but some between Dino and Seth This book is an improvement over the last and saved me from giving up on the seriesBottom line A substantial improvement over book one I have to admit I was hesitant to read this one because of the whole Aramaic Bowl Spells: Jewish Babylonian Aramaic Bowls Volume One ex coming back into the picture theme I m not too fond ofxes In fact I hate when they appear in my books Thankfully my lovely friend HC set me straight and basically.

to someone he gives verything no holding back any part of himself With Dino only recentlysomeone he gives verything no holding back any part of himself With Dino only recently he is bisexual it was never going to be a smooth ride for them and it would have been totally unrealistic if it had been plain sailing I Walled (The Line, enjoyed their little bit of angst and understood that it needed to happen I m pretty sure they will hit a few bumps and I hope to read about them soon Seriously I want the next book right nowI actually kind ofnjoyed the mystery Cruel Attachments: The Ritual Rehab of Child Molesters in Germany even if it was a bit cheesy and Gigi annoyed the heart and soul out of me but I liked the premise and I liked the restaurant in the first book we had a recipe for Cioppino and in this we got descriptions of Italian dishes that made me so hungry I had to take a break in the middle to make pasta This one isn t as smexy as the first one but in the first book that lawn chair scene made me drool and is a hard one to outdo I think I need to read that again soon So delicious Butven though it s not as smexy we still get plenty of Seth and Dino lovin and there was ven biting Seth being all fabulously possessive and jealous It was xcellentSo like in all seriousness when is the next one coming Loved this just as much as the first one ven if I really wanted to smack Dino at one point though he redeemed himself bless him The humor the wit the realism coupled with that slightly insane dge you get from mixing sun and margaritasReally fun charming book Highly recommended and so very readable Looking forward to in this series I hope there are I need I read the first book Like.
