Unscripted by Nico Jaye ( )
Theater manager Teddy Carbone’s life has gone pretty much according to script... until now.
To his surprise, Teddy finds himself co-owner of the Oasis Theater with Carter Monroe, a corporate shark who’s looking at him like he’s chum in the water. Being in charge of the theater is one thing, but having to deal with Carter and his demands is another. With Carter’s proposed plan to sell the Oasis looming, Teddy must convince Carter the theater is worth saving. When Teddy introduces the bright, bold world of the stage to Carter’s cold, all-business lifestyle, though, he soon comes to recognize that the Oasis might not be the only thing he has a chance to save.

When Teddy Carbone's good friend and boss passes away unexpectedly, Teddy finds himself co-owner of Oasis, the local theater in Heartsville. As if it isn't bad enough Teddy just lost a great friend, now the other co-owner Richard's nephew Carter Monroe, is trying to sell the theater without first talking to Teddy, or even stopping by to see what it is they do at the Non-Profit theater. When Teddy goes to Carter's office to confront him, things take an unexpected turn and now Teddy faces losing not only his beloved theater, but his heart as well.
Short, sexy and steamy... why yes, that is my three favorite colors! This snazzy little short hit the ground running, and that was both a blessing and a curse. I loved the electric connection between these two men, my only issue was how fast things went from total strangers to much, much more. I could appreciate the Author recognizing that issue as well , by having Carter put the brakes on slightly, mid way through the story, but the quick change from Teddy not knowing Carter and loathing him to being bent over the couch, a little too fast for me.
Overall though, I enjoyed the story. As with the first story in this series, there was a lot of content for so few pages. You really get a feel for the characters, especially Teddy and his larger than life family that just adore Carter straight away. If you are looking for a fast, fun read with a lot of emotion and steam, then this is definitely an option.
