It’s not actress Lily Lamprey’s fault that she’s all curves and has the kind of voice that can fog up a camera lens. She wants to prove where her real talents lie—and that’s not on a casting couch, thank you. When she hears esteemed director Luc Savage is renovating a legendary West End theater for a lofty new production, she knows it could be her chance—if only Luc wasn’t so dictatorial, so bad-tempered and so incredibly sexy.
Luc Savage has respect, integrity and experience. He also has it bad for Lily. He’d be willing to dismiss it as a midlife crisis, but this exasperating, irresistible woman is actually a very talented actress. Unfortunately, their romance is not only raising questions about Lily’s suddenly rising career, it’s threatening Luc’s professional reputation. The course of true love never did run smooth. But if they’re not careful, it could bring down the curtain on both their careers…
I love Lucy Parker’s writing. This is a wonderful romance with a kind of pull between the hero and heroine that makes you ache right along with them.
We get a great setting in the London Theater and a close up look at falling in the love with the last person you should but you do. They have such a kindness for each other and such wit.
The sexism the book deals with is well explored as is the pain of the heroine’s childhood disappointments but it is also a funny sexy book.
There is a sub plot with the tabloids I thought was a bit much but the tale of friendships in the book was good.
A great way to spend your evening! Can’t wait for the Trix’s story!
