Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Can an onstage love story lead to a real-life romance? Jeremy Steele is a veteran Broadway performer. For his latest role, he’s dancing alongside a man he’s fantasized about for years, TV star Ty Beaumont. Jeremy knows better than to get involved with a castmate, but when Ty has trouble learning the complicated choreography, Jeremy offers to lend a hand. When a rehearsal kiss turns into something more, Jeremy can’t help but wonder what a celebrity like Ty could ever see in a Broadway chorus boy like him. Will a relationship with his crush make it past previews, or can it become a long-running hit?

Author Jeff Adams has taken his love for the theater and translated it into a short, fun love story. When Jeremy, a theater veteran, has to teach newcomer, Ty, choreography for an upcoming show, sparks fly. Unsure if Ty is feeling the pull to him as well, Jeremy doesn't act on his attraction, until a kiss is shared. Even then Jeremy is left to wonder if what they are feeling is something that could take them the distance. And if so, can they be open and honest about their relationship?
A fast, fun read with zero angst, which I loved by the way. Two grown men dancing with and around each other. Sparks fly, attraction grows and then an intense kiss changes everything. I loved the way the romance blossomed between the two men and I actually liked the fact that there was no on page sex. Jeremy and Ty deliver passion and sensuality with feelings, romance, communication and a few fierce make out scenes. Sometimes the 'fade to black' holds so much more than a ten page description, if you get my meaning.
Loved it, highly recommend it and I really hope to see more stories along this same path from Adams.
Jeff's written stories since he was in middle school and became a gay romance writer in 2009 when his first short stories were published. Since then he's written several more shorts and novels, including some in the young adult genre, and he plans to keep writing as long as wonderful readers keeping picking up his books. Jeff lives in rural Northern California with his husband of twenty years, Will.

If forced to pick his favorite book it would be a tie between Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and David Levithan's Every Day.
