“A magical, joyful, delightful, sexy contemporary romance by a new star in the making!” — New York Times bestselling author, Marie Force
The show must go on, but the price of admission could be her heart.
Sick of her vagabond life in a Broadway touring company, Nicola is ready to settle down. She wants nothing more than to park her suitcase in California, put out feelers for local auditions, and leave her past firmly behind her.
Too bad her past comes knocking on her door her first day home. All six-foot-three, beautiful man of her past named Max. Stupid Max. The mistake Nicola just can’t seem to stop making.
Even before Nicola—fiery, quick-witted, beautiful Nicola—slams the door in his face, Max is in trouble. She will always be the one who got away. Three times. Which makes convincing her to play Titania to his Oberon a bit…awkward.
Though she has zero desire to re-re-rekindle an old flame, Nicola can’t turn down the chance Max is offering: a lead role with the West Coast’s premiere Shakespeare company. But when their first rehearsal kiss disintegrates into a passionate liplock, she’s questioning her sanity and tempted to jump ship—before Max can break her heart again.
Now it’s up to Max to convince her that the torch he’s been carrying is actually an eternal flame.
When Nicola is offered a part that she knows well and would keep her in the area she is hesitant to take it because it means being near her ex-boyfriend, Max. She has let herself hate him for years but nothing was ever resolved between them. Max has never been able to let Nicola go even when she was touring the country on multiple musicals. Can these two perform together without any issues? Will the past catch up to them? Will they end up together in the end? Will they let each other go and just be friends? What will happen with these two great actors?
So I picked this book because I am a huge fan of Shakespearean plays and I wanted to see how Midsummer was used in this book. I went in with intrigue and came out in love with these characters. I absolutely love these characters. They are extremely well written and thought out. I felt like I was one of them. The plot was fun and unique and I was surprised at every turn. This author has done an amazing job with this book because it is almost flawless. There were a few spots where I felt that it lagged but it wasn’t enough to make me stop reading. It actually made me try and figure out what would come next. It was like that was the authors way of saying something interesting was coming just around the corner. My problem with this was that it kind of gave things away.
I loved this book and absolutely cannot wait to read more books in this series and this author. There is so much I can say about this book but absolutely none of it would do this book justice. No words as to how much I absolutely LOVED this book.
5 flying stars!
