Quellcrist King has been playing a part his entire life. The more famous he becomes, the more he hides. The only person he ever let see the real him rose with him from nothing to the very top.
They were the king and queen of Hollywood— and then she wanted a divorce. The only way to survive his depression is to bury himself in work. If he can be a character, maybe he won’t have to remember himself. A gay role can’t be any different than playing a straight one, can it?
But instead of finding solace in the character, he finds it in his costar. Hale becomes his best friend, his lifeline, the light in his darkness. Quell is forced to examine everything he thought he knew about himself while filming intimate scenes with Hale that feel more real than anything ever has before.
He’s lived his entire life following the script. What would life be like unscripted?

I loved the premise of this story and did Quell and Hale steal my heart! Quell is definitely a broken soul dealing with depression and a breakup. I hurt for him as he tried to keep everything bottled up inside. Hale really is a breath of fresh air. Unpretentious, sweet and giving…who wouldn’t fall for a guy like that? This friends to lovers book was a lot of teasing of when will they cross that line and I pretty much was dying…the tension was making me crazy. Steamy scenes while filming and not. Yum.
