Hollywood is full of dirty secrets, but Carter refuses to be Levi’s.

Retired action star Levi Pritchard has made a quiet life for himself in the sleepy logging town of Bluewater Bay, Washington. But then Hollywood comes to film the wildly popular television series Wolf’s Landing, and Bluewater Bay isn’t so sleepy anymore. His retirement doesn’t stick, either, because he’s offered a part on the show—exactly the kind of complex role he’d always wanted, one that would prove him more than a glorified stuntman. The only catch? He has to stay in the closet—no matter how attractive he finds his co-star.

Carter Samuels is the critically-acclaimed male lead on Wolf’s Landing. And now, the man who inspired him to take up acting—and made him realize he’s gay—is joining the cast, and sparks fly between them instantly. But Carter is out and proud and determined to stay true to himself.

Remaining just friends is the only thing to do, as both the studio and Levi’s disapproving, dysfunctional family keep reminding them. Except their friendship deepens by the day, tempting them with what they can’t have but both desperately need.

Story Review:

Ahh this brings back fond memories of why I started reading the Bluewater Bay series. This story was adorable yet had enough angst and emotion to keep it from turning cheesy. I loved Levi and Carter. Their courtship started out so sweet with blushes and nerves, and fluttering tummies. Then things turned annoying when Levi allowed outside influences to force him to hide himself and his feeling for Carter. I hated his parents and the studio and wanted to slap them all. But mostly I wanted to slap Levi for hurting Carter. I  almost wanted Carter and his almost hookup to have worked out just to show Levi what was what!

But in the end, I loved the way Levi found his voice and how Carter forgave him. I do wish more of their connection would have been on page, but overall I was happy with this story. I now want to go back and re-read the entire series! Hurry up and release them all on audio so I can binge listen!!!!

Narration Review:

Nick J. Russo’s narration really brought out the best in this story. The cuteness factors were amplified and the angst came through clearly. I felt the emotions and easily connected with his characters. Between my love for this story and the added narration, I listened to this in one sitting because I just could not make myself put this one down!
