RELEASE DATE: 12th January 2016
BLURB: When Theo Samuels heads off to film on location in the village of Stoneydale, he’s expecting drama to take place on camera, not off. But when he meets gorgeous local lad, Eddie Henderson, he struggles to ignore his attraction. A relationship between the two of them would be utterly impractical, yet they’re drawn together nonetheless. Can they overcome the seemingly endless hurdles between them? Or is their fling destined to remain as just that?
Note: Love on Location has been previously released as part of the Brit Boys: On Boys boxed set.
This was my perfect read for a Friday night after a stressful week at work, it was short, straight to the point, low angst and delightfully sweet – exactly what I was looking for.
I’ve already said its short, but I liked the way the author made every page count, she choose her words carefully and delivered a likeable storyline concerning two closeted men, from very different backgrounds.
Theo is an-up-and-coming star, maybe even a Oscar nominee?, he’s on location in a small English village for a period drama. On advice from his Agent, he’s firmly in the closet.
Eddie on the other hand, though also firmly in the closet, is a part-time Gardner and part-time Extra, but not really going anywhere in his life – hell, he’s never even been to London!
Total opposites, with nothing in common…..or have they?
I’m sure you can guess where it’s going and it does! but the author took a standard template and made it into something worth reading. I really liked Theo and Eddie together, especially with the added bonus of Edie’s sarcasm which I have to tell you, appealed to my British sense of humour immensely and took the storyline to another level by adding character and depth.
Because it’s short, we have a HFN rather than a HEA, but that’s how it should be for this particular story, it works well
My rating of 4* is based purely on length (about 60 pages) and not due to the content, as the author did a very good job and I will look forward to reading more from her.
