My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like this one as it, on the surface, focused on gay for pay (controversial in some circles) star Campy but I shouldn’t have been worried.
There are enough little hints and snippets dropped into the opening couple of chapters for the reader to realise, way before Campy aka Cameron himself does, that he’s bisexual and has had crushes on men he’s never noticed for what they were.
Jackson’s arrival in town, as Cameron’s new roommate, begins to stir feelings he’s never had before and it’s amusing to watch him fall in love without noticing he’s doing so.
Campy/Cameron is a cleverly written character, he takes the reader on a journey as much as he takes himself as his various different lives and personas begin to come crashing together once Jackson arrives in his life.
Jackson’s almost too good to be true 🙂 he’s really just a genuine old-fashioned Texas boy who wants to find the love of his life and settle into the white picket fence life and when he meets Cam, it quickly becomes clear he’s found his one.
The story goes on a few twists and turns as Jackson’s TV show starts to make his face more recognisable and then inadvertently expose all Cam’s secrets. The fall out is dealt with in a way which makes sense and which gives Cam the chance to get his own head around what’s happening in his life.
Eventually there’s reconciliation and a truly lovely conclusion to what was an excellently plotted and paced – and seriously sweet and hot – romance in the Ballsy Boys series.
Now bring on Pixie and Bear!
