Adam Fischer doesn’t believe in second chances. Heartbroken after his lover Charlie leaves him to chase his music career in L.A., Adam is convinced that meaningless one-night-stands are all life has in store for him.
Until fate drops Penn Shields in his lap.
Penn is a young, talented designer fresh out of college who has just landed his dream job as a wardrobe assistant in Queen Victoria theatre, where Adam is performing in a popular musical.
He’s also Charlie’s brother.
The last thing Penn wants is to follow in his brother’s footsteps, especially since they haven’t spoken in years. However, the attraction he feels for Adam grows with each day, and soon resisting it proves to be futile.
As Adam and Penn get to know each other intimately, they both realise that first impressions may be deceiving, and that, sometimes, second chances come in the same packaging.
I havent read the first book in the series but this book can be read as a stand alone without any problem. I loved the dual POV throughout this book, to get inside both of the main characters heads really gives this book great depth.
I love the whole idea of the setting in this book, the workplace, both theatre and back stage the costume room are all so well described you can imagine it all so well.
Penn is such a sweet caring soul and such a total opposite to Adam, but they just work so well as friends and as a couple. there chemistry is off the charts smoking hot.
There are many tough issues raised and addressed throughout this story, in a way that is both thoughtful and supportive and true to the real world so to speak. This author deals with the issues in a sensitive manner.
All the characters gel well together in this story and you can really imagine them all being real and working together.
A beautiful story with plenty of drama and passion and a very enjoyable read.
I loved the crazy, hot love scenes. The great angst burning between Penn and Adam as they navigated their way to their wonderful HEA.
