Jay Northcote’s new series starts with a sweet and very real couple and set a lovely place for future love stories. Eager for book two already!

Rainbow Place (Rainbow Place #1)Rainbow Place by Jay Northcote
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sweet and sexy and very... I don’t know, real? It felt real. And natural. And honest. And cute. And yummy.

This is about an openly gay man who falls for a closeted case in a small town. That’s a trope I enjoy and even if not original in the premise it was great and honest in the execution and storytelling.

Seb, AKA, the gay one: Kind, with a great heart trying to help the queer community in a light but meaningful way. Just by opening a LGBT-friendly café in a beautiful but small Cornish town, he is trying to make a difference. A helpful little difference.
He has to deal with a lot of very real insecurities that made him a real character. A lovable one.

Jason, AKA, the closeted: Sexy, conflicted with very understandable fears, honest in this thoughts, still trying to deal with his sexuality. He’s a father of a teenager. He’s divorced from a woman (a nice I-want-more-characters-like-this ex wife, if I have to be more specific).

A great read, and even if I wanted a bit more of conflict, the story flows smoothly, with a nice and dirty couple (they are both things and that’s fantastic), with appealing secondaries that would be great main characters and a lovely setting. I will read the next as soon as it comes out and I’m so curious to know who will be next. Alex and the rugby player? Jason’s apparently straight assistant Will? The Rainbow Place is for sure a nice place to go and have some fun.
