Beneath the famous Brooklyn landmark, love is hidden but not denied: All his life, Alexi Kharpov has dreamed of traveling to unknown exciting places instead of working at his family’s frozen custard stand on the famous Coney Island boardwalk. Every year is the same until a gorgeous man picks a spot in front of his stand to sing, captivating him with his beautiful voice. After two summers of listening, it might finally be time for him to cross that boardwalk and take a chance.
Opera singer Cameron Maxwell has traveled the world, but the sight of the beautiful man serving custard to tourists touches his heart like nothing ever has before. A summer fling might be exactly what he needs to put his problems out of his mind, but the last thing Cam expects is to want the summer to last forever.
It’s a season of discovery for both men who learn to dig deep within their heads and hearts to decide whether secrets old and new should remain buried, or if love is too important to keep hidden under the boardwalk.

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.
I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Under the Boardwalk by Felice Stevens was a warm sweet read of two very different men from two different walks of life.
Russian-American Alexi worked in his family custard stand at Coney Island, very traditional and stuck in their ways.
Cam on the other hand came from a free spirit family emblazoned with love and acceptance.
I'm a fan of anything Felice Stevens and adore her characters and even though I adored Cam and Alexi, I found them both to be portrayed as almost juvenile.
Ms. Stevens always delivers well developed flawed characters who strive to make themselves and those around them better- Cam and Alexi were no different.
Narrator Nick Russo delivered a nice oration of a well written story. I always attempt to surmise the voices of the author’s characters, and for this reader, Cam hit the mark, but Alexi did not. Alexi’s voice almost sounded other-worldly, with a thick Russian accent~ not something I expected from a young man who’s lived his entire life in New York and mingles with tourist. Regardless, Under the Boardwalk was wonderful to listen too.
