If you loved The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice and Styxx (Dark-Hunter Novels) by Sherrilyn Kenyon, then you will not be able to put down this absolute treat!
Jack and Nick seek fortune and adventure in the silent film era of Hollywood. But their newly-expressed love is threatened by the heady allure of fame, gin and easy money.
Sweet and innocent nineteen year-old Jack has loved the older and more street wise Nick from almost the first time he met him. Nick has taken care of him ever since Jack arrived in New York after he was beaten and thrown out of the boy's orphanage for messing around with one of the guys there. They share a passion for silent films and have dreams of heading west to make their fortunes building sets for the studios. If only Nick felt the same passion for Jack, and wasn't already engaged to a gal back in Philly.
Nick's temper sometimes gets the best of him, but that's only because he worries about Jack — Nick is all the poor kid has. But he's also terrified about the way he's been feeling towards Jack lately. They're the kinds of feelings he should be having for his fiancé—Penelope—and never for a man. His only goal is to get them both to Hollywood, where he's sure they'll be rolling in the dough in no time, and where everything will all work out the way it should.
Hollywood isn't exactly what they'd thought it would be. There are plenty of gin joints, jazz, money, parties and sex—but everything comes with a hefty price. Everyone they meet—from Trixie Fox, the ditzy up and coming starlet, to Bernie, the foreman who gets them their first studio job—seems to have a hidden agenda. Can the newfound love between Jack and Nick survive the tawdry mess that makes up the glitz and glamour of the celluloid kingdom, or will their own secrets tear them apart forever?
