What should have been actor Parker Stigwood’s evening of triumph became unforgettable for an entirely different reason when he turned his back on the accolade of a lifetime. Sneaking away into the night Parker avoided defending his decision and believed he’d committed career suicide.
A planned trip home to Dareville becomes a godsend as well by avoiding reporters while Parker figures out where his future lies. In the meantime at his mother’s request he’s checking out the local theatre’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and their luscious director Luke Hall.
The two men hit it off right away and quietly begin dating. Roadblocks in the form of past lovers and new interested parties make it difficult for Parker and Luke to take their relationship to the next level. Even with these problems the couple realizes they have something special, if they want to make more of a commitment. It all comes down to whether Parker is willing to go the distance with Luke regardless of where life takes him.
Painful memories of the past and stalwart integrity play out against an unexpected romance in Dare to Act. Parker is a man of decency, conflicted by the choices he’s made. Meeting Luke is like a breath of fresh air, a man in the same business without any strings. Their romance is realistic and the plot is entertaining. A secondary storyline involving characters attached to Parker and Luke begins well, but unfortunately complicates a part of the climax though the outcome is still enjoyable and satisfying.
Dare to Act is a sexy romance with characters who deserve love and happiness.
