Noah Sinclair
Noah Sinclair is best described as an egotistical, pompous, anal retentive, asshat. And those are his better qualities. Lately, Noah has lost touch with his playboy character “Jace” on the show Americana and can't quite put his finger on why. The studio decides it is time to shake up his character by making him an offer he can't refuse, literally. They will

There is sometimes one of those books that just grabs you from the moment you pick it up and will not let you go until the end.... and sometimes not even then. That is this book for me. TRIGGER WARNINGS: past child abuse references, homophobic beating, violence, very graphic detail. Now that that is out of the way let me tell you I had a lot of mixed emotions where the main characters were concerned. I would like them, feel sorry for them, get mad at them, decide the other main character was bet ...more

I had my doubts while reading but I thought the subject of the book was pretty good so I wanted to read more. But the story is full of cliches, it makes my eyes roll and not in a good way. There’s lots of writing that could get scratched without affecting the story negatively, I think it would make the story better because there would be less repetition and ‘filling’.
Also, I think it’s actually a shame the author writes it so that Josh had a little crush on Archer. If he doesn’t know h

Noah Sinclair plays the role of Jace in the famous TV series Americana but the producers decide to take his character in a new direction:that of having a male love interest. The actor chosen for the role of Max,Jace's future lover on the show,is Josh Hill.

Neither Noah nor Josh are happy at the prospect of having a gay part and they have a rocky start, personalities clashing. And it's an easy guess what happens next: denied attraction becomes a heated relationship, unwanted feelings turn into un

Just Like Heaven is a really sweet, slow burn Hollywood romance.

Noah and Josh are two actors who are suddenly playing romance interests on screen. It takes them both by surprise, and neither are comfortable at first. Eventually though, they become friends, and then more.

I love Hollywood romances, and this one is really sweet. It's a story of finding that one person who can set you free from the chains of your past.

Noah and Josh both struggle with their feelings, completely afraid of what they de

3,5 stars out of 5

This book could easily be a 5 star read but for me there were a few holdups that shaved the rating down considerably. On one hand we have a really good slow burn (bro)romance (or the guys keep telling themselves it's just that) , two guys put in a situation that makes them question, or in Noah's case acknowledge, their sexuality, some angst and deep buried issues from the past, written in both PoW's. All the things I usually love in the book. What put me off was that it was mos

This is a very slow burn romance with a great premise, deep character development, and a journey of discovery between two men who never thought they would find themselves pretending to be in a relationship with another man, much less moving from pretend to real life.

When you meet Noah, the man in the blurb of the book isn't really found. He seems insecure and knows his job is in jeopardy because his character has become stagnant. He agrees for his character in the TV show he's in to start dating

Just Like Heaven by T.L. Bradford is a good read, I did find some odd time jumps in this book and the POV hard to follow in places. But over all really solid read.
Noah works on a show he refuses to call a Soap Opera. His character has been dropping in ratings. So they have a new storyline for him. He has to play a gay character. They are bringing on a new love interest for him. He has some trouble at first, but then he is okay with it.
I found him a desperate character at first, then he goes into

Wow. I didn't quite know what to expect since this author is new to me. She definitely did not disappoint. The only problem I had was getting through it because it's a very long book. I have no problem with that except I'm recovering from surgery and on very strong meds. I wanted to read it all in one sitting but couldn't because reading and pain meds don't mix. Lol. On a serious note though, I really didn't want to let go of this book. It was a page turner. A SERIOUS PAGE TURNER!! I thought my ...more

Just Like Heaven by TL Bradford is a long- read,...a Contemporary M/M Romance that mixes opposites attract feel with a friends to lovers theme. It deals with topics such as coming out, discovering your truth, hate crime, abuse dark revenge and PTSD. Noah and Josh's journey of love is a bit of a rollercoaster ride.... ups and downs, joy and heartbreak. I must admit there were emotional times while reading this, parts I felt I was falling apart with the characters and then parts where my pieces we ...more

From that review:Like Heaven by T.L. Bradford was an interesting read.  Just as there were elements to like and be entertained by there were also aspects of the story that were disjointed, character issues that took away from the plot, and continuity problems that you couldn't overlook. Plus it just felt overly long.

A great slow-burn with very engaging characters and the storyline was very interesting. It had enough ups and downs to keep me reading until the last page. All in all a very enjoyable read.

T.L. always hated math, so it was a good thing she had a way with words. Since she was a shy and quirky kid; words were her best friends. She would imagine entire worlds in her head and talk to herself endlessly. Her mother wondered if she was speaking with ghosts for a while.
 
Her older sister was a voracious reader of trashy romance novels and would pass them down to her after she had finished t
