Mistakes from the past, feelings denied, and a career on the rise may doom their relationship before it has a chance. K. Vale pens a wonderful, contemporary romance with humor and heat in Hard Act to Follow, Book 3 of her GLBT series, Shooting Stars. Enjoy the twists and turns as best-friends-turned-lovers fight old fears to find new love and their happily-ever-after.

Kyrie is an actor with a physical aversion to telling lies, a one-eyed cat, and horrible taste in men. His ex-brother-in-law and best friend, Greg, harbors a secret crush he can’t shake. After denying his feelings for Kyrie for too long, Greg finally gives in to desire one drunken night. Come the morning, the facts get twisted. Kyrie pretends he doesn’t remember a thing—a lie that eats him alive—and Greg can’t stop thinking about how he screwed up the best thing in his life.

Before they can clear the air, Kyrie follows his dreams to New York City, but could he also be running away?

A mistake from Kyrie’s past detonates their silence, and Greg is forced to confront the man he loves. Is their new truth strong enough to support a relationship, or are they doomed to crumble under old fears? Their friendship could evolve into something a million times stronger, but maybe Kyrie’s act is just too hard for Greg to follow.

From the beginning Greg and Kyrie’s relationship was one of best friends. Kyrie believed that Greg was still in love with his sister, which was far from the case, and he wanted to help Greg move on with his life or get back with her. What neither of them realized was that they both wanted each other. Kyrie is the out and proud flamboyant one. While Greg is far from it. He’s not even out of the closet, yet. One hot and steamy drunken night changes the course of the two best friends. Will Greg and Kyrie both come to their senses and realize that they are perfect for each other? I enjoyed the book from start to finish. I was sitting on the edge of my seat wonder if the next chapter was when one of them would have their “duh” moment. The story was well written and a page turner for me. I can’t wait to read more from K. Vale.

This was a great continuation to the series!   I have to admit that I loved the other books best, but Kyrie and Greg really grew on me. I got nervous as I started seeing angst at only 25% in, but it was handled beautifully. I really liked the challenges these guys faced (Spencer and his drama) and the way they worked through it once they decided to actually  start communicating (men! lol). I would have liked a little more reaction from the family (view spoiler). Otherwise, this was a great addition to the series. I really loved seeing Gio again, too. :-) I highly recommend this continuation to the other two awesome books. K. Vale has quickly become one of my favorite authors and will definitely watch for more stuff from her. This book was provided for free by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Kyrie and Greg are best friends and ex-brother-in-laws. We first meet the two in Double Takes (you don't need to read it to understand what's going on and may be read as a standalone. I do recommend going back to read the other books though.) They spend almost all their free time with each other. Greg has been pining after Kyrie and really tries to fight these feelings not because he's supposedly straight but because he doesn't want to lose the friendship or betray his adopted family. Kyrie is a quirky person and he so free and fun.hes an easy person to get along with. He's always pulling Greg around and trying to get Greg and his sister jazz together. It's endearing. Then after one drunken night it just so happens they fall into bed together. The morning after is tense and a bit awkward. Kyrie makes up a lie hoping Greg wouldn't be too keen on discussing what happened. From then on their relationship becomes strained and distant. Greg and Kyrie communications is lacking and the strain on their relationship will either break them or make them. All they need to do is air out their troubles. I found Kyrie a funny guy especially with his one eyed cat Willie. The part when their moving cracked me up ( I’m a horrible person for laughing at such a serious part but the things that came out of Kyrie’s mouth and the way I imaged him saying it just had me laughing). I loved the relationship dynamic between Greg and Kyrie. In fact I loved a lot about this book: that Kyrie managed to do what Jazz couldn’t for Greg. The change and effect of their behavior towards each other and that Greg helped Kyrie get that recommendation and made it happen when dealing with Kyrie s ex-bf/academic adviser. It was enjoyable seeing the interaction they had with family. I would have liked to have seen more of their backstory. Readers really just got very basic info about them. The thing with Jeremy was intriguing if I was a cartoon character I think my eyes would have been popping out of my head. It was pretty juicy news and completely unexpected considering his name only shows up twice in the book in reference to Kyrie’s ex. The reconciliation had me ‘awwing’ and laughing. I loved that Greg told Kyrie to stay out of his Kyrie jerk off drawer.

This book was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review. This book is about the relationship between Greg, a work obsessed lawyer, and Kyrie, his ex wife's brother. Greg harbors a secret crush on Kyrie, the much younger gay brother of his ex wife. Kyrie wants his sister to get back together with Greg. But then after he's told, both by Greg and his sister that that's not going to happen, his brotherly best friend love turns into something more.  I liked the beginning of this book. The interactions between Kyrie's family and Greg and other characters lends for a nice story. Then there is a drunken night between the two MC's and the typical night after non-communication misinterpretation. After they clear things up it's pretty much all about the sex. There are a few things that happen that could have brought some real drama but are really just brushed over. I've read a few of K Vale stories before and liked them a lot. This one, to me, lacked story. The way it's wrapped up at the end is just too rushed.

I was a bit worried when I first started reading this book because at first, I didn’t realize that it was the 3rd book in the series. So I was pleasantly surprised that it ended up being fine while reading because the other books didn’t seem to have a role in this one. That might not be the case in all honesty, but I personally didn’t feel lost or confused while reading it in the slightest. I really enjoyed the characters in this story, especially Greg. I am a total anguish person when it comes to stories, and I thought there was just the right amount of that in this story. I loved Greg’s character because I really liked the back and forth with him, he knew what he wanted but he was afraid to go after it. To me, that’s what made the story so much better because it wasn’t an insta-love and completion story, there was enough in it to keep my attention and make me want to read to more to find out what was going to happen. I did still enjoy Kyrie’s character, he wasn’t one of my favorites, but I do think that he was a good match for Greg. He was very fun loving and easy to like, which I do enjoy with characters at times. Overall, I can say that I haven’t read anything by this author in the past, but I will be sure to keep an eye out for more books by them in the future. *Copy provided for review* Reviewed by Crystal Marie for Crystal’s Many Reviewers

I thoroughly enjoyed Hard Act to Follow. It is well written, fast paced and entertaining. Third in the Shooting Stars series, I read it as a stand alone without any trouble. My favorite element of this story is how vibrant and character driven the writing is. Everyone felt so real that they jumped right off the pages and into my heart. Kyrie kept me laughing with his outrageous comments, and breathless with his fearless expression of sensuality. I wanted to cheer at his achievements, and hug away his tears. He is the best friend everyone wishes that they had!  Greg reminded me of my own brothers. I wanted to thump him upside the head when he was being slow, tease him simply because he blushes, worry over how much he works, and wished as hard as I could that he found true love. With a full complement of characters that I could easily imagine being my next door neighbors, this could be the story of any average family. Having good days and bad days, making mistakes and then suddenly getting everything 100% right, only to blow it all over again. With laughter and tears, tragedy and triumph, love and loss written on every page, Hard Act to Follow makes my list of top ten romances of 2014! My OFFICIAL REVIEW written for Carly's Book Reviews
