The Pool Boy's Beatitude Review

Synopsis: In space, the expansion of the universe exceeds the speed of light. In a jail cell the speed of light slows, time ages and deteriorates slowly to a crawl.

Jack Joseph understands physics. He understands the nature of quarks, leptons, dark matter and the desire to find the God particle. What Jack doesn’t understand is Jack.

He has a Masters degree in particle physics, an ex-wife, a sugar mama, a passion for cooking and chronic dependencies he needs to feed. He cleans pools to maintain this chaotic lifestyle.

Spinning about in a Large Hadron Collider of his own making, the particle known as Jack is about to collide with a particle known as Sarah.
Darra's Review:
This book is off the beaten path for me. I am always interested in characters that have substance, more than just the Neanderthal you run into in many books. Jack is not the usual guy in this case. Is it possible to have one character be smart, idiotic, attractive, yet disgusting? I liked his personality. When he goes into his philosophical rant, it is absolutely believable he is high. These are off the wall conversations you will not hear again.
Now I will not BS you, in the end I was not over the top for him. It may be partly because all the women he is involved with. In the real life, those women would have committed murder against each other. That is the truth when a guy sticks it in every woman he knows. Unfortunately some feelings seemed a bit forced and I don't see it really happening like that.
I just wish I liked the characters as much as I did the writing. Unique conversations however it needed main characters that carry more depth than the 1 dimension I read.

My rating is a 3 out of 5.
