Professor Topaz is tired of fending off advice that he should retire in Vegas where magicians his age have an easier time finding work.
Ricardo Hart’s career has sunk so low, he’s resorted to shaking his moneymaker at bachelorette parties.
But there’s a casting call for a new reality show called Magic Mansion that could change everything for these two gay stage magicians, one recovering from the loss of his partner, the other awe-struck by the presence of his idol. Each is poised for a critical second chance: at fame, and at love.
Who will win? Step into the Mansion, and find out….
I’m not a fan of reality TV. I don’t watch it unless it is a last resort. Not even the cooking shows. I didn’t realize how much this book would be just like watching a reality show behind the scenes and all. That being said, I wasn’t completely put off to the story. And just because I’m not a fan of this sort of thing doesn’t mean the book isn’t well written.
The more I read the more I wanted to read more. I did find it to be a bit wordy in some parts, but it was still very good. I was able to enjoy the romance story between John and Ricardo that came out of the game show.
