Summary

Twenty-three-year-old rising theater star Jill McCormick has built a life out of pretending. Pretending she's happy, pretending her long-distance crushes add up to something real, pretending she's not haunted by the dark secret that shattered her world six years ago. Cast in her first Broadway show, she desperately needs to keep her façade intact, but that's before she comes face to face with her devastating new boss....
Hotshot director Davis Milo knows the first rule of directing: Never fall for your leading lady. Captivated by Jill's raw talent, he fights his feelings, but watching Jill on-stage with another man is more than his jealous streak can take. Keeping things professional isn't an option. He wants all of her. Soon the ingénue and her director are staying late in the empty theatre, their private rehearsals spiraling into new, forbidden territory. Caught up between fiction and reality, Jill struggles to find the truth in all their staged kisses. But how can she be sure that what she feels is real, and not a part of the play? And when two people spend their lives pretending, what happens after the final curtain falls?

A steamy and emotional ride


You are in for a Steamy & Emotional Ride!

Davis Milo is the ideal Man! If he was a Biscuit he would be a Cookie, Hard and sometimes a bit tough to break on the outside but take off the top and there is a sweet, soft, lickable centre!

You Will Fall In Love With Jill, I did, she is Wonderful You are routing for her the whole way through, i shed a tear for her, was her cheerleader, and shouted Go Girl when., Well You know When!

Jill is not a sniveller for no reason, she doesn't run or whinge for no reason, neither character does, it is all done for the story, nothing is drawn out, everything is just right. Nothing in it which had me wanting to chuck the kindle at the wall, as just when i am normally at the point when i think they are going to get half a book out of this now, i was like, well goodness me...it is being sorted.....well done Lauren....this was like all the Rom-com's i enjoyed when i was younger with the 'boom box in the rain' moments and they don't make them like they used to do.... encompassed into a book. I can see this on the screen. I can see the takeaway moment in my head right now on the screen. Rom-com with an 18* rating on it ;-) seriously steamy!!!! my car steamed up reading this waiting yesterday. A HOT-TOTTIE-TY-HOT Read

Male and female narrators for the parts. I loved Emily's narration, she knocked it out of the park. Todd, I enjoyed overall, he did over egg it on occasion for me and my view for Davis would have been a deeper voice maybe. But that is the publishers choice.

Improving each time

Just love that there's such a balance of naughtiness but with a good storyline, insecurities battling with trust etc - Another well done to Lauren.
