J'avais beaucoup aimé Jeux de rôles, je suis un peu plus mitigée sur cette suite. Nous retrouvons Carl et Keith juste après les avoir quitté, vivants ensemble, amoureux et passionnés. Et découvrant tous les deux les joies, mais aussi les excès, du sexe gay. Alors qu'ils sont sous l'œil des caméras, obligés de se dissimuler, guettés par la presse à scandale, et que les extraits les plus chauds du tournage se retrouvent sur le net, les deux hommes, paradoxalement, se libèrent peu à peu dans l'inti ...more

Well, I have given it 2 stars because I did want to find out what happened and it was a reasonably satisfying ending, but oh dear. Taking up the story of Keith and Carl from "Acting Naughty" this whole book could have been written as just another 2 maybe 3 chapters at a stretch. The trend Ms Hauser has going of using characters from past books has potential and I think a lot more could have been done with this story. I have said this before but this stretching out a story so that she can charge ...more

01/18/13: Revised rating after a couple of years of reading m/m: from 3 to 2.

This is the sequel to Acting Naughty.

It's a book that I read in one sitting, because I had loved Keith and Carl in the first book. In this second book it's like I couldn't really recognise them anymore. It was all about the sex they were experimenting and the playing they were doing, but I wanted some romance too. I missed the discovering of one another that was so exciting in the first book. The sequel adds nothing mor

I knew it was a mistake buying this book. I'm done with this series. What a waste of my time.

I want to try an experiment, I want to write this post on the second book in a continuous series without reading what I wrote of the first book. Why I want to do that? Since I have the clear feeling, soon after finished the book, that this second one has left me a deeper impression in comparison to the first one.

Carl and Keith are both young actors in a cable drama. The tone of the show is quite sexy and they play two gay men in love: the first book was about the two of them finding out that the

This book answered a lot of the questions that were unanswered in the last book. I have really grown to like the two main characters, I was a little surprised when Keith wanted to have sex with other men together. Maybe its just in inexperience? I was glad they decided they really didn't need that. The ending was perfect, I always love when everything works out. I'd like to read more about them after they actually admit their a couple. Good story

Meh m/m romance that I only read because things were left so open-ended in the previous book. The menagey bits took me by surprise and the main characters spent way too much time crying at the slightest provocation.

Well, this one was surprising. Not bad in any sense. Still enjoyed it but some of their decisions surprised the hell out of me. Great chemistry though and very good dialog.
