Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
Will Carmichael, an impossibly handsome silent film star, longs for the broodingly intense director André Chenard. Can they find their way to one another despite the hidden perils of the prohibition era?
Will Carmichael lives a carefree and fun-filled life as one of Global Studio’s most popular motion picture stars. Young and stunningly attractive, he could have any man he wants. However, the only one he has any interest in is the only one who won’t have anything to do with him.
André Chenard is Global Studio’s newest director. A proponent of the newly introduced Russian method of acting, he aspires to create true art through the films he directs. Not interested in wasting his time on frivolous pursuits, he spurns Will’s constant attempts to catch his attention. Although André can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous man, his initial meeting with Will leads him to believe that he is too shallow for serious consideration.
Resigned to the fact that André will never be his, Will is determined to enjoy himself to the fullest at his favourite speakeasy and pansy club. When his carousing becomes out of control and he’s injured, André steps in to help. As a result, they each discover that there is much more to the other than they had originally assumed.
Right when it seems they have found their way to one another, an outside threat drives a wedge between them. As a result, they may have more to worry about than lost love—the threat could be to their very lives.
The sixth in Morticia Knight’s Gin & Jazz historical series set in 1920s Hollywood features handsome and fun loving silent film star Will, and intense and demanding film director André. Will is popular with men, but he truly wants André. However, Will fails to impress the brooding director when they first meet. Fortunately, fate has other plans, and André soon sees Will as the man he wants to star in his next film – and to be in his bed.
The romance between Will and André is quite passionate, and their sexual energy is enticing, but it’s their delicious chemistry makes this story especially enjoyable. The two men have that spark together that simply grabs the reader. The story is also quite entertaining – there is romance, angst, intrigue, and a well-deserved happy ending.
I recommend this exciting historical story – As is common with other of Knight’s Gin & Jazz series, the detail of the historical period is exceptionally descriptive and enriches the story. This is the perfect romantic story to spend a lazy rainy afternoon with.
