Review: OVERALL: This is a very interesting, fun, sexy collection of stories. Unlike some anthologies you only have three stories so you get more detail and characterization than in some Anthologies packed full of short stories.
Blurb: Some dream of fame and fortune, but it isn’t always everything one might think it will be. It doesn’t matter what entertainment industry you’re in, you have to sacrifice, and when it comes to love, well that brings on a million other issues.
Inside you’ll find three stories about men in the limelight. They worked hard to gain the fame they’ve found, but in doing so, they all have longed for one thing — Love. Some things might come easy for these men, but when it comes to sharing their hearts, things are never simple and either are the men they desire.
Time Gone By by E.M. Leya ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts
Jon is one of the biggest names in Hollywood. The fame and fortune he has is like nothing he ever imagined, but he left behind the only man he’d ever loved to achieve it.
Wyatt thought he’d put the past behind him and moved on, focusing on his career as he hides the truth about himself from those who are closest to him. Why should he risk his family and friends with being honest when his only reason left town six years ago?
When fate throws the two men together again, they are forced to confront things from the past that they both don’t want to admit, but the passion and desire for each other is stronger than ever, proving that no matter how much time has gone by, the heart knows what it wants.
Jon has made it big in Hollywood but even all his fame and fortune hasn’t made him happy. Deep down he still longs for the man he left behind 6 years ago. He throws himself into his work until he gets an emergency call from home that his dad is dying. When he arrives he finds the Wyatt the man he left behind and the reason he rarely comes home to be the nurse on charge.
This is an absolutely beautiful story! It really started out so good then sort of lagged a bit in the middle. The ‘I love yous’ became very overused and monotonous, otherwise this would have been a 5 Heart story.
The love these men still held over the years was priceless! It’s the type of love we all dream of!
Suck This, Neil Patrick Harris by H.L. Holston & Eleanor Bruce ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts
Dante Moretti has a big problem. His acting career has hit the skids and he’s desperate to land the lead role in the next Hollywood blockbuster. It’s his last chance to get back on the superstar track.
But, his personal life is a train wreck. No sane director will work with him any longer. Solution? Bribe his best friend and former co-star, Chris Parker to play the role of his long-term boyfriend. Showing the world he’s in a committed relationship will hopefully convince casting agents he’s reformed, stable and trustworthy.
Even if it’s a lie.
What Dante doesn’t count on is the public’s reaction to the announcement that Chris and he are a couple…and his own feelings for Chris spiraling out of control.
Under the merciless cameras of the paparazzi, Dante is forced to choose–his leading man status or the man he thought was just his best friend. Who ever thought that pretending to be in love would be this hard?
Oh wow was this an unexpected gem! The title did nothing for me until I saw the relevance. This story had me laughing and praying for these two men to get together.
Dante had a run in acting and is trying to get a big part. He overhears that his reputation as a bad boy is going to keep him from it. It goes home and enlists his best friend and roommate to be his fake boyfriend. Chris is straight. But he finally lets Dante talk him into this crazy scheme.
There is twist after twist, as thing go good or bad for them. I absolutely loved this story and these men! I highly recommend reading this story, especially if looking for a fast fun and very sexy read!
Center Stage by Sara York ♥♥♥♥4 Hearts
Country music is Slade Pepper’s first love and he can’t walk away from the stage, but being gay and in country music doesn’t allow him to have a personal life. Slade takes the month off to decompress and search his soul. He meets Corbin Branford and can’t say no to a passion filled night.
One night turns into more, but Corbin has no idea who Slade is, and Slade tries to keep it that way…until a fan blows his cover. Corbin is angry enough to leave, but Slade Pepper won’t give up without a fight.
Slade is a very famous country music singer and in his business being gay could be a career wrecker. After years of being on the road adored by fans, not able to go anywhere or do anything on his own or have a real relationship, he is close to burnout. He goes to a remote town beach town and meets Corbin, the owner of a small bar and grill, near the cabin he is staying in. They hit it off immediately. The only way for Slade to have a relationship would be to come out. Is he ready for that? Is Corbin up to all the publicity and also ready to be outed?
This is also a very good story. I loved both Slade and Corbin. I loved how Sara showed us Slade’s busy life and his softer side with his fans. I also liked the comradery and ease Corbin and Slade fell together. Of course Sara writes some really steamy sex scenes!
Overall, this is a very great book. You can read all at once or in sections to fill time. I highly recommend this book and that you read all three stories as they were all awesome!
If you’re like movie stars, country singers, lost love found, new love beginning, and some very hot man-sex this is definitely for you!
