Jeremy Ash, an aspiring actor, is single, gorgeous…and openly, quietly gay. When he lands a starring role opposite America’s favorite former child star, 21-year old Kit Harris, he’s ecstatic and more than a little attracted to the enigmatic star.

Kit Harris’s career has been flagging and his agent promises this new film, an edgy coming out story with a famed director, is just the thing to get it back on track. The problem is that the film is relatively intimate in nature, and Kit’s definitely not gay. He’s not even slightly bent.

When the two men collide in a crushing first kiss that leaves both gasping for air, Kit’s left reeling and Jeremy’s left wanting. And that was just the audition. When filming starts and the two men are brought into close proximity every day, passions ignite and souls collide–both on screen and off. The two men find that the only way to assuage their mutual lust is to give in to it. Kit’s sure this strange new attraction will run its course; Jeremy’s hoping it never has to end.

But when a manipulative model obtains salacious film footage of the two men in bed, Kit’s prepared to do whatever it takes to save his career. But how far is too far to push the boundaries of love and how long can one man hide from himself?

Story Review:

It’s not often that I love a sequel as much as the original but that’s the case here.

Listening to the audio of No Apologies was as enjoyable as reading it years back and I can say the same of Acting Out. While the first book centered around Greg Faulkner, the writer of a movie also called No Apologies, and his boyfriend Aaron Blake, Acting Out is about the stars of the movie; Jeremy Ash and Kit Harris.

Jeremy has been in the business for years but this is Kit’s first role. Kit is gay but Jeremy’s never been attracted to men—until he meets Kit. Kit sparks desires in Jeremy’s that he’s never felt before.

Not only was the chemistry between Kit and Jeremy amazingly strong the push-pull of their relationship was realistic as well. Jeremy was torn between his growing feelings for Kit and his desire not to lose his career thanks to coming out. This book was written before stars like Neil Patrick Harris and Zach Quinto came out so the climate for gay actors was even tougher at that point.

Armstrong writes amazingly hot sex scenes and the ones between Jeremy and Kit are positively scorching. Rough and passionate for sure.

It was nice to see Greg and Aaron again and parts of their relationship helps both Jeremy and Kit evaluate their own.

Another great story and I can’t wait to move onto book three.

Narration Review:

Once again Noah Michael Levine did a great job with these characters. He’s quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators.
