Theatrical agent Payton Gowan meets with former classmate—and prospective client—Beckett Huntington with every intention of brushing him off. Beckett not only made high school a living hell for Payton, but he was also responsible for dashing Payton’s dreams of becoming a Broadway star.
Aspiring actor Beckett Huntington arrives in New York City on a wing and a prayer, struggling to land his first gig. He knows scoring Payton Gowan as an agent would be a great way to get his foot in the door, but with their history, getting the chance is going to be a tough sell.
Against Payton’s better judgment, he agrees to give Beckett a chance, only to discover—to his amazement—that Beckett actually does have talent.
Payton signs Beckett but can’t trust him—until Payton’s best friend, Val, is attacked. When Beckett is there for him, Payton begins to see another side to his former bully. Amidst attempts by a jealous agent to sabotage Beckett’s career and tear apart their blossoming love, Payton and Beckett must learn to let go of the past if they have any chance at playing out a future together.
So going into this review I want to be completely honest and say while did like them as a couple and I did like the pretense of this story I felt like the forgiveness to Beckett after what he does to Payton in high school was a little too easy like he did not really work for it at all.
Beside that there was angst in this book also steam too,
So Beckett is looking for a talent agency and he falls into Payton’s lap. Well at first Payton wants to get even with Becket which he deserved because he was a jerk, Payton decides to take him on a client. The story moves on from there and you meet a few new characters too.
So all together I really liked this book, I just felt like Payton blew off what he did..
I gotta say Val was very entertaining, he didn’t seem to have a filter when he spoke, which made him quite funny. I loved Payton and Beckett they made a fantastic couple. It was nice to read how they worked past their differences from high school.
It was a sweet romantic story that wasn’t instant love they first had to get over hurt feelings. Another great book by Andrew Grey.
