There’s no forgetting your first love.
It’s been twelve years since the boy next door disappeared from Steven Neeson’s life, but he’s never been able to forget the promise they made to each other. Since then, Steven has been lost on his path through life, suffering through stagnation and the inability to follow his desire to become a writer. When he learns that his old neighbor grew up to become a famous movie star, Steven decides to risk everything and leave his life behind. Screenplay in hand, it’s off to LA for a chance at the big time—and to reunite with his childhood sweetheart.
“I moved on. I had to move on.”
Kalvin Hinderbrook is Hollywood’s hottest new leading man and most eligible bachelor. He’s spent his entire career avoiding romance in order to keep his orientation hidden, afraid that coming out of the closet would kill his chances to reach the A-List. It’s been easy for him to sacrifice love for acting, but that all changes when he shows up in town.
I could still bring it all back as if it were yesterday.
In just one passionate night, their reunion breaks every wall Kalvin set up to protect himself, but he can’t afford to fall for Steven again. He’s about to take on the biggest role of his career, and he’s sacrificed too much to let it all crumble now—so why can’t he control these feelings he thought were long gone? They once believed they would be together forever. Can old love be strong enough to transcend the challenge of time?
My Leading Man is a 40,000 word steamy MM contemporary romance. This page turner has has no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after.
My Leading Man is the first book in a new Harper Logan series, The Neeson Boys, which features Steven, Gavin and Jay Neeson. Each book can be read as a standalone story, but is more enjoyable when read as a full trilogy!
Oh, this was a charming book. Very sweet with a reunion love. It’s a pleasant, entertaining read for an everning and with the movie topic it is really fitting to the Oscars which were a few days ago. 🙂
It is sweet how Steven, a handyman is moving from his hometown to LA to search for Kalvin. He doesn’t know what to expect and he truly follows his heart.
The reunion is sweet and sensitve, hot and mixed with sparks flying.
But even if there are the feelings between the guys, Kalvin hesitates and have to decide: his career or his love.
It is maybe not really pleasant for the reader first to see how Kalvin decides but it is very understandable to be honest. On the other hand the romance loving reader is a bit angry and shakes his head about Kalvin.
The story had a twist and turn at the end, I liked it, because it gaves the story a bit suspence.
The minor character are nice and supportive, Angela is a really great PA and also Kalvin’s co-star Larissa is charming. It’s good to see that the women in the book are displayed nice and supportive than bitchy and angry.
I have to say there is a fast development in the reunion part but I have to say it’s believable.
The tension is there – the good and bad feelings – and the hot scenes are really steamy. Very well written and details are well displayed.
As I said the book had a few things I found were a bit overdramatised but it had to be included to create suspense. I was struggeling if I should reduce half a star but in the end I still give 5 out of 5 stars.
I am really looking for the next two books of the series, there weren’t so many information revealed despite the fact that it’s about Steven’s brothers Jay and Gavin.
