Summary

Drew Beaumont is bored of the same old roles: action hero, supervillain, romantic lead. He’s not going to let a fresh gay buddy comedy languish just because they can’t find him the right costar. No, Drew bats his eyelashes and convinces everyone that the movie’s writer should play Drew’s not-so-straight man. 

Aspiring writer Steve Sopol has never had a screenplay optioned. Now, one of Hollywood’s hottest properties wants to be in a movie Steve hasn’t finished writing - and he wants Steve as his costar. Turns out the chemistry between them is undeniable - on and offscreen. 

Drew swore off dating in the biz, but Steve is the whole package: sharp, funny, humble, and cute. For Steve, though, giving in to the movie magic means the end of the privacy he cherishes. 

Will the credits roll before their ride into the sunset?

fun and sweet

What a cute book. Low angst and a really sweet relationship. There's potential for more from this world too.
As always, Kenneth Obi enhances the story with his charm and humour.

Two men fall in love

This is a story about two men who meet on a movie set and fall in love, I enjoyed it for the simplicity of the story and the good flow between both the main characters, there were no angst, no major drama which left me just relaxing and listening to Kenneth’s voice, perfect!!!

Kenneth’s narration was really good and he kept the story going, his character voices were good and easily distinguishable.

Thoroughly enjoyable romance

His Leading Man is a thoroughly enjoyable romance. It’s just so sweet, adorable, cute, fluffy, low angst, and easy to lose yourself in.

Told in a dual POV this had a lot of opportunities to devolve into cliche, but it didn’t. Kane keeps the writing tight and the characters are well fleshed out and I spent the entire time rooting for them.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the HEA ending, and Kenneth Obi’s narration was really well done with easily discernible character voices, good timing and pacing, and an easy delivery that made this a pleasure to listen to.

It did take me a bit to get into the narration, because I didn’t personally like the character voice for Drew as it seemed too effeminate and breathy for the character, but that’s just a personal preference, and I eventually was able to sit back and just enjoy.

Looking for some fluffy romance with likable characters, low angst, and a very happy ending? Check this out.
