Overview

On the island where they first met two lovers from opposite sides of the tracks are reunited. Now jaded and broken, Alex and Matt still can't deny their sizzling connection or the memories of one perfect, uninhibited year together.

At twenty-two, Matt Tarrington is rich, good-looking and destined to be powerful, but behind that confident exterior lurks a man who resents the life his family thrust upon him. Wanting an escape, Matt heads to Mirabella Island off the coast of Florida for a year of relaxation and a few wild nights with vacationing party-girls.

Matt never expected to find real passion in the arms of Alex Hunter, a handsome, laid-back local. Alex is gay, but closeted. Knowing Matt should be off limits, Alex finds the deeply-in-denial rich boy too tempting to ignore. Especially when a bet has them working together, fighting the heat in the rundown, beachside cafe where Alex sweats for every dollar.

Their love felt inevitable until youth left them vulnerable to hatred and greed. After six years of hating the lies they live to make others happy, they will have to risk it all for the second chance they both desperately need.

    Great read!

    I have read hundreds and hundreds of "erotica" books but this was my first in the m/m genre and it did not disappoint. I have been bored with the books I have been reading lately because they tend to all be the same but this book was very well written and their love story really was at the heart of the book. I would have liked a little more closure at the end but all in all it is a book I will hang on to and probably re-read in the future.

    Intensely Emotional With Lots of Steamy Encounters

    Fans of the m/m genre will find much to like in Kele Moon's Starfish and Coffee as outside forces tear apart, and ultimately reunite, friends to lovers Matt and Alex. Matt and Alex come from different backgrounds which you think would keep them apart, but the connection between them sizzles and you can't ignore how good they are together. They're both strong-willed and long to find a new and less stressful life, but they can't hide from reality forever and fears of the truth about their relationship coming to light lead to a painful decision for Alex. At first Alex seemed more accepting of his sexuality and booty calls to Key West, but being with Matt pushed him into the closet which aided in an already silly decision. His fears seemed misplaced since I think people have become more enlightened, but he did reside in a small town and small towns don't like modern ideas. Thus I could ultimately forgive him.

    Up until this time Alex lived life as a carefree young man unconcerned with the future. But his time with Matt made him better as it made him finally go after making something of himself, he finally left his youthful ways behind. Matt always seemed more mature. His life was fully mapped out for him and Alex was his lifeline to happiness. Whereas Alex seemed more cautious, Matt was more outspoken and would've gladly shown everyone how he truly felt about Alex even though this was his first gay relationship. Their differences seemed to melt away in the bedroom though which led to numerous steamy, and at times playful, sexual encounters where there was a clear give and take. The early interludes were frantic and gave the impression that their time together was running out. When things did end it was frustratingly sad.

    The flashback to their youthful time together took up most of the story with their reunion coming towards the latter part of the story and was wrapped up quickly and satisfyingly with a door left open for a return visit to this world and a hopeful HEA for secondary characters Holly and Will, Alex's best friend and his brother. Their storyline was equally frustrating and I look forward to seeing the immensely likable Holly, who was a great support to Alex, finally make Will see the error of his arrogant ways.

    With its likable cast of characters, steamy sexual encounters, and characters not afraid to show real emotions I found myself completely drawn to Ms. Moon's latest release. The storyline perfectly balanced the sexual interludes and the intensely emotional scenes to create an ultimately unforgettable story that has me wanting to read more of her literary works.

    Fantastic!

    I loved this book! I read at least one book a day and this was one of the best books I have read in months! It was the third book that I read from this author and so far it was my favorite. I enjoyed the other two but this story sucked me in from the very beginning and I couldn't put it down. Even if you are not a big fan of M/M romance, you can't help but fall in love with these characters, they are awesome together. Very good book. Hopefully this story continues in a second book.

    This is my first M/M I've read. Granted, I've read several other

    This is my first M/M I've read. Granted, I've read several other books that have characters in M/M relationships but never a full length novel. For me though, it's not about where its M/M or F/M/ or F/F or M/M/F or F/F/M or well, you get the combinations! Its about the story! The relationship between two people! Of course, the journey to their happily ever after!!

    When I first noticed/saw "Starfish and Coffee" on Goodreads, my first thought was "that's an interesting title" and I'll tell you my second thought just for fun - "Man, those guys are hot!". Well, they are. Both on the cover and in the book! The title will make total sense when you read the book!

    The author does a fantastic job of writing their story and making you able to relate in one manner or another! The synopsis does a great job of telling you what the story is about. However, reading the book brings the emotions to forefront and you'll get to know some great characters.

    Both Alex and Matt are great characters who are smart, independent, witty, and sexy! They each have their own thing going on and successful within their own rights. I love the interaction between them both and not just when they are in the relationship. Even as they were friends and getting to know each other, it was great to see that ease of conversation and that connection between them both!

    Even the supporting characters were interesting! Kele did a great job with making everything well rounded and inclusive that everything contributes to making the story better. Holly is Alex's best friend and Will is Alex's brother. They are both major parts of Alex's life. One knows Alex's secret, while the other has no clue. They also have thing for each other. I definitely would love to read and get to know their story! Hint Hint Kele!! 

    This is a great read and I will be adding Kele's other books to my TBR Mountain!
