Is there a second chance after your first love gets famous?

Zac was once Bobby, before he left his old name and his old flame to claw his way to the top of the charts. A decade later, bounced from his band, the erstwhile celebrity finds himself crawling home alone with his tail between his legs.

Reed hasn't seen Bobby for ten years after making the tough choice to quit music to study medicine. His small town needs a local doctor, and Reed has worked hard to fill that need. Sure, it's lonely for a gay man in a place this size, but he has his loyal dog Magnum by his side to keep him company.

When Magnum literally knocks over the stranger squatting in the old Mason place, Reed didn't expect to meet his Bobby from way back when.

Can former friends find the love they lost, or will the paparazzi tear them apart for good? Even with a nudge from an intelligent dog, how can a celebrity and a small-town doctor make it together? This steamy gay romance is a complete full-length standalone novel with no cheating and no cliffhangers.


I love second chance romance stories! Tonight's Encore by Parker Avrile is just that. I will say this was unique in it's building and I like that the author made the trope their own.

Zac aka Bobby, ran from his Arkansas town to pursue his music career. Of course he becomes insanely famous and never dares look back. He also leaves behind his best friend and first ever boyfriend, Reed in the process. Zac's career as a bassist for the band is pretty fantastic. Dating the lead singer, amazingly popular for a decade it's terrific right? Yeah until circumstances have Zac back in the small town he ran from many years before.

When Reed comes face to face with "his Bobby" again it was interesting how seamless it was.They have a sexual relationship but vow not to let it get any further. They need someone to scratch their itch so to speak. We all know where that is going.

Magnum, Reed's Bernese Mountain dog, absolutely stole the show He's so awesome that I found myself excited when he was on page and in some instances hoping we'd get to see more of him. 

The story is very engaging and the pacing is good, if not too fast is some places. The characters are fleshed out well and as the story moves along and we learn more I found the revelations to be perfectly placed. Zac and Reed have to deal with a lot in this book. So much drama with ex's and paparazzi and so much. It was great to see them overcome and fight through so much.

It's a very entertaining and enjoyable read.
