"When Tommy relocates from Miami to Boston for a reporting gig at the local paper, he brings the heat with him in this frothy beach read. In his first novel, Boston Globe reporter Johnny Diaz peppers his tale of three guys looking for fun with plenty of winks and nudges at the current scene. It's a charming cocktail.'' OUT magazine
