Her cumulous lips take me in, radiating heat. She pulls her arms around my waist, pressing her soft body against my hard frame, and her tongue searches mine out. Her hands, her lips, her moans all perfectly in sync with my own body, my base desire. Her thigh grinds between my legs and I’m sure she can feel my instantly thickening length. I bring my other arm around to her lower back to intensify that connection, confirm with my actions that she is right where I want her to be. We drown in each other. I lose track of time. No, that’s not quite right. Time loses meaning when our bodies are joined. We stay in this moment, alone together, for several breaths. Finally, on one shared inhale, our mouths gently fall apart as I rest my forehead against hers, both of us opening our eyes slowly. “That kiss reminded me of you,” I rumble to her, our faces still in contact. The world reduced to the millimeters of space between us and nothing more. “Um, well, that’s good,” she laughs, “because it was me.”
Lights. Camera. Action…
I’ve got everything it takes to make it in Tinseltown: confidence, charisma, and a killer chin. Now all I need is a chance.
But Los Angeles is full of hot, young hunks, and talent might not be enough to separate me from the cookie-cutter crowd.
Well, you know what they say: fake it till you make it.
So I devise a wild scheme to get noticed. Pretend I’m someone I’m not—goodbye Will O’Connell of Cincinnati and hello Liam O’Connell of Dublin.
‘Liam’ and his talent with accents is enough to get myfoot in the door, but I never anticipated meeting the woman who has me more worried about keeping my foot out of my mouth.
Enter Raven Locke, the dark-haired bombshell who puts the ‘tude in tattooed.
On set, she’s the costumer tasked with fitting my pants, but all I can think about is how to get into hers.
As my — I mean, Liam’s — budding career begins to heat up, so do our feelings.
While Raven pursues her passion for fashion; I chase her heart.
Our picture-perfect screenplay seems sure to send us riding off onto Sunset Boulevard… Until Raven finds out that Comedy and Tragedy aren’t the only masks I’m wearing. Our romance might be destined for the cutting room floor, unless I can salvage our story with a plot twist she won’t see coming.
*This first-person, male-POV rom-com has it all: lots of heat, plenty of heart, and a Hollywood-worthy HEA.
