Following his heart and passion will be his biggest role of all.

Kris Hunter wants out. He’s done pornographic films for the last six years. The pay’s been good, but his creativity is nearly dead. His passion is to act and to be a star on the big screen in mainstream films. When he auditions for famed casting director, Zayn Mason, he’s convinced he’s on the right path. He doesn’t want to take the casting couch route to success, but he certainly wants Zayn in his bed. Can he follow his dreams and the man he desires or will forces beyond his control derail his progress?

Zayn Mason sees the potential in Kris. As a casting director, he looks for the right actor to fill the roles in movies. He’s seen plenty of talent come and go, but no one stirs his soul both creatively and physically like Kris. But Zayn knows the pitfalls of the movie industry. Crossing over from porn isn’t easy and Hollywood isn’t always forgiving. Besides, he’s got demons of his own. Can these men get beyond their pasts and find a future together under the bright lights of the silver screen?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of voyerism and intimacy with multiple partners.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Listening to Andrea LeeTAG

I liked the idea of this book, but I couldn’t like either one of these characters. Nothing really wrong with them, per se but I couldn’t connect. They just fell flat for me.

I liked that Kris did what he had to to survive and is now trying to do what he wants, what is calling to him. I liked that Zayn is the person that can help Kris and is willing to give him a chance in and out of bed. I liked the crazy ex twist that keeps a mundane story line going.   I enjoyed the things I learned about the filming industry. But for some reason putting all those together did not equal a great read for me, I found myself wondering, mentally and physically.

I could see the way the author was trying to give me depth, when reading lines, and when Kris was reading I could see how we we’re supposed to be completely enthralled with the piece, and maybe because I didn’t read the lines mentally as Kris would have, I missed the mark, as it were.

I loved how we got to save the dog, and how he was incorporated into the story, but after about the third time someone mentioned how it was a vicious breed and Kris needed papers etc. I felt like the author had some sort of hidden agenda with it.

I did like Kris and Zayn, they had a lot going for each other, they got each other, and even though we had some bumps in the road, we got it sorted and had a good ending.
