Book Review: Love vs. The Limelight by Manda Olie

Rick Campbell is the Hollywood Heartthrob who has it all: a great career, an excellent agent, and fantastic friends. Unfortunately, he also has a secret that could potentially ruin his success. His reputation as a lady-killer is completely fabricated in order to ensure he keeps getting work.

His silence when it comes to the truth may cost him Christian, the love of his life, who's grown tired of being a dirty little secret and has issued Rick an ultimatum: tell the truth or lose Christian. Heartbroken and afraid, harassed by reporters and adrift in a world that's slowly changing, Rick has to choose between the life he's worked hard to build and the man he doesn't want to live without.

Overall, this was an okay read for me. I enjoyed seeing the turmoil Rick endured due to his decision safeguard his career at all costs and the slow rebuilding of his relationship with Christian. However, I couldn't really feel the connection between the two main characters because so much of their relationship was in the past and explained to us in exposition. I knew, in theory, that Rick and Christian were deeply in love, but I didn't feel it.

Release Date: April 26, 2016

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
