Swimming to Cuba by Steve Milton had a lot of potential of being something really good but was rushed and cut short and therefore it wasn’t. You got glimpses of people, glimpses of a story, a story that wasn’t half bad at all but you were slung into things, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but never quite got the feel for either of the main characters which sort of killed it for me.
What I learned and saw of both Adam and Lucas I liked and they had great chemistry, which if been a full length novel the author really could have explored. So the story was good, characters were good but there wasn’t enough time to get to know them. I love the build up I love learning all the why’s and if’s and when’s. There were so many things with the two MC that I would have loved to have found out more about, especially, their backgrounds and what made them do what they did and where they came from.
Would I recommend this book, sure if you are a person that like quickies, to speak bluntly, where it’s in and out, wham bam thank you ma’am then yes by all means, it is not a bad story. I sure will try another of this author’s story if I can find a longer one to see what happens when he takes his time.
When their criminal enterprise capsizes, a Cuban and an American entrust their lives to each other
After a hard life on the Miami streets, Linus finds a gig smuggling cars from Miami to Cuba. As much as he distrusts men, he can always trust Adam, at least as a business partner: Adam is always waiting for him on the beach when he arrives in the dark of night.
They keep their relationship strictly business, despite Linus’s beefy muscles and Adam’s beautifully slim physique — strictly business, except for that one beach kiss, but that doesn’t count…
Misadventure at sea throws their business into the water, and strong words lead to a breakup, Linus trying to find his own way on the sweltering streets of Baracoa and Adam trying to figure out what he did wrong. They need each other, but Linus won’t trust, and Adam won’t wait.
