Overview

When two people make beautiful music together on stage, can their love survive once the curtain falls? Linnea Larson is appalled when a Hollywood hunk is hired to star opposite her at her family's theatre. He's known for playing a superhero on screen, and a super stud off screen. Neither fact convinces her he's got what it takes to share her stage. And thanks to a pact with her best friend, she never dates actors. Luke Powell has fame, fortune, and an endless string of women, but is dissatisfied with his picture-perfect life. He escapes to his theatrical roots to find wary cast mates, a nervous best friend convinced the show will ruin Luke's career, and an adorable costar who refuses to date him. Far from the spotlights of Hollywood, can he find happiness in the footlights of a tiny theatre? Despite Luke dragging her into his paparazzi nightmare, Linnea can't deny his irresistible charm. But their fling has a guaranteed expiration date. Why risk the inevitable heartbreak? Their job is to act like they're in love, but will they decide it's worth the leap to fall in love for real? Excerpt: "But there is no way, dollface, we're going back into rehearsal until I taste you." Luke's strong arms pulled her flush against his body. They were touching everywhere--feet tangled, legs, chest .... Linnea couldn't let herself think about the parts touching in between their legs and chest. Then he cradled her face ever so gently between his large, warm hands and kissed her. As first kisses went, it was one for the record books. No hesitation, no slow and steady incursion. Luke's kiss was more of a possession, a branding. His lips settled firmly on hers, and she had no choice but to be swept along for the ride. The power of his kiss lit a long-banked fire inside her. Heat gathered somewhere behind her belly button and spread out, like light rays emanating from the sun. A moan slipped out, and Luke took the opportunity to slide his tongue in, exploring every inch of her mouth. And with every nip at her lip, with every quick lick, her layers of calm, cool reserve melted away.

    This is the second book I¿ve read by Barth and I wasn¿t disappoi

    This is the second book I’ve read by Barth and I wasn’t disappointed. This book had romance, laughter, some tears, lots of conflict and was able to hold my interest from the first pages. A large part of the story took place in the theater and although I don’t know much about that world it was easy to envision yourself there as the story unfolded. Between the rehearsals, costuming, the myriad of characters involved in one part of the theater or another and through to opening night you felt yourself a part of the energy and even the tension that surfaced at times. You could also smell the cosmetics, feel the heat of the lights and hear the back slapping and applause. The friendship between Linnea and Ingrid was portrayed realistically and you could feel the emotions they felt whether it be happiness, disbelief or just support they gave each other. Luke and Wes thought they were friends as well as business partners and associates but Wes was
    frustrated easily by Luke’s actions and very often only thought of himself. I especially liked the ending which gave me the happily ever after I was hoping for but didn’t think would actually happen. My only disappointment was that the story seemed to end so abruptly. A few more pages would have been nice. This was an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading other books by this author in the future. Review by JoAnne. Book Provided by Author.

    Engrossing

    Lights, camera, action! Act Like We're In Love is an interesting story, but takes a while to kick off and generate interest.

    The first situation is one we've seen before. Linnea is literary swept off her feet by Luke, who is obviously someone famous, though she initially doesn't realize.

    However, as I read on, the plot slowly developed into something more and the somewhat stereotypical characters grew on me. Nonetheless, the author does become a bit repetitive on how fabulous Luke is and how fantastic his kisses are. The descriptions, though are well composed and sweet (along with spicy at the right moments), and the novel has some great humorous moments (Luke's manager, Wes becoming angry was hilarious) as well as some very witty dialogue. Those were the things that kept me turning pages.

    The secondary characters were well managed, though the way the relationship between Ingrid and Wes was heading, they could have gotten a novel to themselves (actually that would have been quite interesting).

    The best thing about Act Like We're In Love is without doubt the theatre-like feeling I got while reading the novel. Loving theatre and having had the chance to be part of the backstage, I really felt the nerves, the preparation, the gossip, and the theatre jokes that run throughout the novel.

    Although the ending was a bit abrupt after everything the characters went through, it was well thought out and very endearing. Act Like We're In Love is a sweet, cute read that will leave you feeling happy and satisfied.
