Book Review: Same Page (How the Light Gets In #1) by Lily Velden

4.5 stars

While on location in Sydney to promote a film, famous actor, Jaxon Moncrieff, is forced to attend the opening of an art exhibit to smile and bring attention to the gallery and its featured artist. It's all very routine to Jaxon, something he's done countless times, but the sight of a beautiful man with reddish brown hair grabs his attention, which is odd since he's never been attracted to men before. Immediately laying on the charm, he thoroughly offends the man, whom he finds out is the artist, Liam Lassiter. Even though Jaxon wants to make amends with Liam, he disappears. Soon it's time for Jaxon to head back to the States, but he can't get Liam out of his head. He's determined to make things right and hopefully, with a little hard work, be his friend. Will Liam give Jaxon a second chance or potentially allow love to slip through his fingers?

This is a lovely story about two men, from two very different worlds, who forge a strong friendship that eventually turns into something very special. The slow build of Jaxon and Liam's relationship was great to watch unfold, and all of the waiting is worth it in the end as the two men deal insecurities, overwhelming feelings and the unknown when it comes to love.

I would definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy a sweet, old-fashioned romance in which each partner is courted and admired.

This is the first book in a series, so there is somewhat of a cliffhanger at the end. However, things end on a high note.

The author provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
