Welcome back to the romantic and magical place called Cozzi Cove, seven guest bungalows on the New Jersey Shore.
This summer, Cal and his new husband, Michael, along with sister, Taylor, and her wife, Carla, prepare for the first in the next generation of Cozzis. To add to the action: Cal finds his great-grandfather’s diary, exposing a shocking surprise; Michael and Taylor weigh new job opportunities that could take them far away from Cozzi Cove; red-letter Christian and new houseboy, Billy Dean, gets his wish when meeting Jesus and John at the cove; summer guest, Nijad, can’t decide which sibling he prefers—Annabel or Andrew; and Jonathan, an occult enthusiast, encounters a sexy vampire.
As usual, nothing is as it seems when romance blossoms once again at Cozzi Cove. What secrets, mysteries, and passions lie waiting to unfold? Find out in Book Four of the Cozzi Cove series.

Cozzi Cove New Beginnings is the 4th book in the series. Each book can stand alone. Cozi Cove is like Love Boat on the beach. Instead of on a cruise ship, the setting is a little Cove with seven bungalows and the main house. Cal Cozzi IV owns and runs it, now with the help of his husband, Michael.
In each book, there are a few mini stories along with Cal and his family.
In New Beginnings, we have Johnathan who is obsessed with the paranormal especially vampires. He meets Vlad, a method actor from the convention that has a strong resemblance to Dracula and some strange powers.
There is Najid, a travel agent, that meets Andrew and his twin sister Annabel. Andrew has his secrets.
Billy Dean is the new cabin boy. He is from a religious family and has signed a virgin card. He meets Jesus and John and is shocked to find them in cabin seven.
Malcolm is a rich, famous magazine editor that used to work at Cozzi when he was in college. He could very well shake up Cal's life.
Cal and Michael are waiting on the arrival of their baby boy that Cal's sister-in-law is carrying for them. Taylor Cal's older sister adds lots of humor to the story!
Each story is special in its own right. Once you start reading, you won't want to quit. New Beginnings is a very heartfelt story. Joe Cosentino writes such heartfelt characters with sweet, sometimes angsty, always hot, storylines.
If you are looking for a hot, steamy book, with interesting characters, charm, humor, even a vampire, and some hot man-sex you will love this book.
