Blurb: 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?
Review: For a story featuring actors — well, theater actors — Love’s Opening Night is angst and conflict free. The relationship progress is also quite straightforward. Jeremy helps his cast-mate (who is also his crush over the years), Ty, learn a complicated choreography dance one night after rehearsal. Turns out that Ty has been thinking that Jeremy is attractive – so after a couple of weeks, Ty kisses Jeremy, and they move forward from that.
There is a sweet moment when Ty takes care of Jeremy when Jeremy slips and hurts his leg. I found it adorable that Jeremy didn’t think that Ty could like him, especially since Ty was pretty much Jeremy’s idol, someone he saw beyond read.
I really liked the description of the lives surround Broadway theaters – the rehearsal, the ‘smooching’ over the investors. And because this is theater, nobody bats eyes over the same sex relationship between Jeremy and Ty. Everybody is welcoming.
It was a nice easy read – and good reading material in between novels. 🙂
Overall Impression: I liked it
