Rating: 4 of 5 stars
I‘m a big fan of Louisa Keller’s books and so I was really thrilled to start her new „The Travel Boys“ series.
„The Limelight“ is the story of upcoming music star Levi and silent bartender Porter. Both characters are really loveable and each has his own strengths and flaws. Their chemistry was also great from the start. I absolutely enjoyed the build up of their relationship and the physical encounters were scorching hot.
The supportive cast of Levi’s and Porter’s friends and family was great and I’m totally looking forward to the next one finding their happiness 🙂
So why not five stars? For me the second half of the book felt a bit off. In the beginning we have an immediate connection between the two men and everything develops smooth and almost without troubles. And than suddenly comes the big break in the middle of the book and afterward the connection didn’t feel the same for me. I don’t mind a bit tension and angst in a romance, but it felt a bit strange to get all the negativity only in the second half of the book whereas the beginning was totally sweet. It almost read like two different stories. Both parts for themself great, but together a little bumpy.
But altogether it is still a very well written story with great characters that leaves me impatiently waiting for the next one in series 🙂
