Far From Hollywood by Daisy Harris
Series: Out for You
Published by All Romance eBooks Genres: Contemporary, MM
The Teen Scene movies catapulted Blake Tyler into Hollywood stardom, but lately he’s having trouble getting call backs for secondary roles. Poor judgment at a recent party was the icing on the cake so Blake’s laying low for awhile. Surely a home in Pookataw Valley, Idaho will keep him off the paparazzi radar, at least until someone else creates a scandal and everyone forgets about Blake’s little gaff.
Blake figured he’d go crazy in the boonies with nothing to do and no one to share his bed. He was starting to until Sheriff Jack Frances walked into his life. The Valley native is most definitely interested in keeping Blake busy, both in bed and out. In the past Jack’s kept his preferences discreet because he’s living with his sister and her teen daughter, but pretty soon everyone’s going to notice the sheriff’s car parked at that actor’s home each night if they haven’t already. Accepting the possible professional fallout is something Jack’s got to make a decision on before things get too complicated between them.
The Sheriff’s warming Blake’s bed and he’s cajoled the actor into directing the local teens in their annual play at the Bear Mountain Community Hall. It keeps Blake busy during the day and there’s the added bonus of Jack’s niece Zoe getting a part in the play. Her horrible father is somewhere around and she’s safer with the group.
Whatever happens between the good sheriff and the dreamy actor begins to matter more than either man imagined. Jack doesn’t want Blake to return to Hollywood, to never look back. And suddenly leaving the back side of nowhere isn’t quite so appealing for a down on his luck actor. Everything’s changed and neither saw it coming.
An entertaining blend of realistic, sometimes awkward characters and a busy, fast paced plotline Far From Hollywood doesn’t disappoint. Author Daisy Harris manages to bring two very different worlds together and make it work. Blake and Jack couldn’t be further apart professionally or better suited sexually and that gives them a reason to make the effort. Also, subplots involving Zoe and Ez, a teen in Blake’s play thoroughly enrich the storyline of Far From Hollywood. A packed sometimes twisty tale delivers.
