I am in love with this new series. (Well new to me, as this is the third book in the series) If you are looking for an escape into a great romance story, then this is for you. What is great about this series, is while they all relate to each other and you can certainly read them in order, they can stand alone. Each one having a full story in and of itself. While I love a long series, with a continuing story line; sometimes it is just nice to pick up any where and be off.
From the back of the book:
“She’s spent her whole life acting. But is she good enough to make him believe she doesn’t love him?
Three years ago, a terrified girl named Emma fled a world of crime and abuse in Chicago and bought a one-way ticket to New York. She reinvented herself as an actress, enrolled at the prestigious Fenbrook Academy and buried her pain beneath a vivacious new persona. Her new name was Jasmine.
Now she has to pull off the performance of her career.
Landing her dream part in a police show, she finds herself falling for her co-star, Ryan, a real-life cop. If she lets him get too close, he’ll awaken memories she doesn’t want to face and uncover secrets that could endanger them both. But how can she keep a guy at arm’s length when she has to kiss him on camera?
The last place Ryan imagined himself was on a TV show. Blaming himself for the death of his partner, he’s on a downward spiral of rage and guilt. The show is his last chance…but how can he keep it professional when his co-star is a woman he’s crazy about?
As their on-screen and off-screen relationships merge, things go from hot to blistering. But when Jasmine’s old life catches up with her, will a cop be the one person she can’t be around…or the only person who can save her?”
Acting Brave is one of those stories that starts off slow. It gently pulls you into the story, you won’t even notice that it has gripped you until you try to put it down and can’t. The characters are so well developed that you feel that you know them, that they become full people in your life. If you want a contemporary romance then this will be a book for you. But be sure to check out the other books in this series as well.
