Starstruck (Bluewater Bay #1) by L.A. Witt


Hollywood is full of dirty secrets, but Carter refuses to be Levi's.

Retired action star Levi Pritchard has made a quiet life for himself in the sleepy logging town of Bluewater Bay, Washington. But then Hollywood comes to film the wildly popular television series Wolf's Landing, and Bluewater Bay isn't so sleepy anymore. His retirement doesn't stick, either, because he's offered a part on the show-exactly the kind of complex role he'd always wanted, one that would prove him more than a glorified stuntman. The only catch? He has to stay in the closet-no matter how attractive he finds his costar.

Carter Samuels is the critically acclaimed male lead on Wolf's Landing. And now, the man who inspired him to take up acting-and made him realize he's gay-is joining the cast, and sparks fly between them instantly. But Carter is out and proud and determined to stay true to himself.

Remaining just friends is the only thing to do, as both the studio and Levi's disapproving, dysfunctional family keep reminding them. Except their friendship deepens by the day, tempting them with what they can't have but both desperately need.

My Review 

* * *  I received this copy from NetGalley and the publisher in return for my honest opinions. * * *

I love coming out books when done right and done with a good storyline.  This was a cute story and I was glad when things turned out the way they did. 

We start out with our main character Levi and we meet the horrible man named Finn who is trying to get Levi to sign a contract to be on a show. At first he doesn't want to but he is reminded this was a part he would be proud to play. While touring the set he sees Carter and when they meet face to face later it practically seals the deal for Levi. 

Carter had been crushing on Levi since he was younger and when he lets Levi know that sparks fly. But while their friendship is just beginning Levi is basically told if he comes out his career is over. Not sure what to do he pushes Carter away and is heartbroken when Carter meets someone else. 

I personally loved how the book turned out in the end, even though I would love to see Finn put in his place. The author should add a bonus scene with that lol. Overall I'm rating this in at four hearts.
