He's Behind You (Treading The Boards #3)
Stuart Box has returned to Cornwall after earning his PhD, and is killing time as he looks for a job back in London. Spending time with Ryan from the Sarky Players is a great way to take his mind off things.
During their first meeting, sparks fly, but not in a good way, and they must work to get past their initial hostilities to discover they have great off-stage chemistry. Stuart soon learns Ryan is not the superficial man people assume he is, and Stuart likes what he sees. The feeling is entirely mutual.
Pity Ryan is only visiting for two weeks, but both men want to see where this holiday romance might take them.
Summer Season has the same humor and spunk as book 1 (Overly Dramatic) did. We seem to be following the Sarky Players throughout and this book is Ryan's story. The other MC is Stuart, a guy who just moved back home.
I have to say being an American and not well traveled, I'm always entertained by the culture of conversation, humor, and geography of other countries. The whole British package in this is awesome!
Now when we met Ryan in Overly Dramatic I don't know about you but I didn't particularly like him. So getting his story was terrific because the author gives him the opportunity to redeem himself... and he does.
Stuart is the prime package; smart, funny, driven, good looking. Everything we all want to be! He's not thrilled with having to be with his mother after getting his PHD but if he didn't he would have never met Ryan.
This is a fabulous RomCom. New loves navigating not only their relationship, but all the little tangles that form when figuring out how it will all work. I very much enjoyed this book.
