Publisher's Summary

Noah Sinclair

Noah Sinclair is best described as an egotistical, pompous, anal retentive, asshat. And those are his better qualities. Lately, Noah has lost touch with his playboy character “Jace” on the show Americana and can't quite put his finger on why.

The studio decides it is time to shake up his character by making him an offer he can't refuse, literally. They will introduce a new love interest for his character “Jace”. Only this time, there's a twist.

Josh Hill

Josh Hill is up a creek and sinking fast. He's got no job, no money, no credit, and is about to be kicked out of his apartment.

Opportunity comes in the form of a job offer from the show Americana. Everything should be perfect; only, there is one hitch. He will be the new love interest for Noah Sinclair’s character on the beloved show.

So, opposites are supposed to attract, right?

Not so fast.

No one said life was that easy. Both actors find themselves in untested waters. Will they be able to play a same-sex couple with no prior experience authentically? Well, they say practice makes perfect.

Carefree, fun-loving Josh and uptight, overbearing Noah realize they need to make the best of their bad situation and are forced to find common ground. Over time, their roles in each other's lives become blurred. Is their attraction fake, or is it real? To top it off, Noah has a dark skeleton in his closet that can prevent them from ever moving forward.

Can they get on the same page and save both of their careers and their relationship? Or, will they end up yesterday's tabloid fodder?

JLH is a slow-burn love story. It can be listened to as a stand-alone. It contains a cast of characters that encounter romance, heartache, laughter, and life lessons. The book has darker themes that may act as triggers to some listeners. It contains adult language, mature themes, and is best enjoyed by those over the age of 18.

Pedestrian

Narrator does a great job with a really poor story. Author needs to learn the reason show don’t tell is a writer's golden rule - it makes. This. Story. So. Boring. Sorry DNF.

a really good slow burn, friends to lovers romance

This is a slow burn romance about Noah and Josh, who are friends turned lovers. Noah broke my heart with the trauma he suffered and Josh was so likable and willing to love Noah that it was hard when their relationship hit bad spots. There were a lot of supporting characters in this book but it was never overwhelming trying to keep track of them. It felt like I was right in their world with them. Another thing that I really like about this book was that it let us have the point of view from both of the main characters. This was a really good book and I very much enjoyed Corey H. Bennson’s narration.

I don’t know how to act as I don’t love you


Hollywood romance! Always romantic, sweet and usually exciting. I mean who doesn’t love some Hollywood gossip and romance stories when sipping a cup of tea.

Noah is getting tired of acting as a playboy character. And Josh is someone who’s desperately need monkey not to be kicked out of his apartment and continue feeding himself. When these two are put together in a show to act as love interests, to say the least, they really didn’t see that coming. They are actors, and actors are good at acting. But why is it so difficult to act this romance isn’t real off-screen?

Ah, a love story between two actors, scandalous, exciting, full of bumps and hurdles along the way but sweet at the same time. Sometimes only someone who’s of the same environment can get you and will understand you. It was a sweet, slow burn romance. There’s both MM and MF romances in this book although MM is the primary romance of the story. Overall, I thought it was sweet and enjoyable.

Okay

This book was a tough one. It was hard to read at times, the characters had so much against them. I'll be honest, I thought this book was a little too long, I thought that Noah was a bit of a jerk. But it wasn't a bad book. I enjoyed it, Even if I felt like to dragged in some places. The narrator wasn't my favorite but his acting skills were good enough that I didn't feel lost when he was switching characters.
All in all, this was a good book and one I enjoyed listening to.

Must read/listen

This one is a little weird for me. Let's get into the review before I explain it all.

STORY: 4 STARS
Wow! Two men introduced as straight, but there is an instant connection between them. Turns out at least one of them might not be as straight as they claim to be. The connection is real, the interaction between the two of them feels genuine, and the back and forth is at times funny and sometimes cringeworthy. But everything is good. I will tell you that there are a few trigger points and the author does an amazing job of dealing with issues that many may have dealt with or are dealing with. PTSD is real. When I realized audio was long, I was a little unsure, but the author, for the most part, needed all of that time. There are several times when I think it drags and I think the author does a lot of tell and less show, but the story is good regardless of that.

NARRATION: 3.5 STARS
Hmmm. The narration was decent, but many times the narration was stagnant and it was hard to tell who was talking when. It didn't help much especially in the moments when the story was slow-moving. As the story progressed, the narration got better, but I still felt that there were times when it could have been better. I did love the conversation parts and the way Corey H. Bennson brought those particular parts to life.

OVERALL: 4 STARS
Overall, I did like this story and the narration was ok. 4 stars overall.

Opposites attract!

Noah’s character in the TV series needs an overhaul and his character becomes the love interest of another man. Noah is straight, or so he says while Josh is also straight. So why the explosive chemistry between them? The story takes you through their struggle to be out and proud, dark secrets and very bigoted people. There’s also the young crew which makes for a fun and caring group of friends. There are scenes where I cried my eyes out, and some are super sweet. It was not an easy path, but love and understanding came through for them.
