My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free advanced copy of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
I love this series! Sweet, fun, easily read and thoroughly enjoyable. All of the first three books works as stand alones, all though the couples ‘visit’ in other books, so we get to see snippets of their HEA, which is lovely for those of us that have read them all, but not confusing for those who haven’t. That being said I will not recommend anyone read this one as a stand alone. This is the continued story of Kyrie and Greg from book 3, about what happens after the ‘I love you’.
Kyrie and Greg are living together now and have been for more than a year since we last saw them. Kyrie has been offered some modelling jobs and takes them for the exposure. This leaves the couple rattled. Kyrie is suddenly surrounded by out and proud beautiful gay men, where as Greg is still struggling with getting more than a toe out of the closet. Jealousy and secrets are not conducive to a healthy relationship, no matter how hot the sex is and how affectionate and happy you are behind closed doors and when Greg’s mother come for an extended stay, and even the privacy of their own home is no longer safe, feelings and emotions reach a boiling point.
Ms. Vale is a very evil person, there I’ve said it. I loved Greg in ‘A Hard Act to Follow’. Truly. I did. But I have never wanted to smack someone upside the head as much as I wanted to smack Greg in this book.
The story was great, as always. The writig flowed nicely and the reader is kept engaged all the way through. I read it in one sitting, all during Sunday, completely ignoring all of the things I should have done instead.
No matter how much I wanted to smack Greg though, and how frustrated and quite frankly anxious I was whilst reading it, I can happily report that everything turns out well in the end and I will warmly recommended this book and the whole of the series.
The book comes out on June 27th this year. But whilst you wait, why not go to your local book seller and pick up the other three in the ‘Shooting Stars’ series. Forever Is Now, Double Takes, Hard Act to Follow. You won’t be sorry.
