She wants the leading role in everything but her own life.
Kayleigh Barrow always gets the leading role. Top of her class, well liked, and a good actress, she’s most comfortable on stage where she can pretend to be someone else and forget the real Kayleigh exists. However, when auditions for the latest production are opened up to the entire university, the lines between fantasy and reality start to blur.
The last person Kayleigh expected to audition was Aiden Hanson. Renowned player and popular on campus, Kayleigh has tried to conceal her feeling from him for years. She knows it would be stupid to think he’d want her or an actual relationship, but when they’re thrown together in the production, Kayleigh can no longer hide from him.
No matter how much she tries to distances herself, he’s always there. Neither of them can deny their attraction, but Kayleigh has to question Aiden’s motives. He’s never had a serious relationship and she refuses to be another conquest. Yet, when her acting starts to become real and she can no longer hide behind her character, Kayleigh must decide whether Aiden’s worth the risk, or if he’s only after a challenge and will end up breaking her heart.
*cries loudly because it’s the last story in the series*
I love how Mia Hoddell creates these characters that are equally parts awesome and lovable. I loved both Kayleigh and Aiden from the get-go, because while they appear to have wonderful lives on the outside, on the inside they could be dealing with a bunch of different emotions and problems.
Aiden and Kayleigh fit so well together too, I was definitely routing for them from the very beginning. His easy going attitude woks so well to soothe her innocent and shy demeanor. *sigh* I just love those types of stories. It wasn’t cliché though, because real issues were dealt with (very similar to all the other previous novellas in the series).
I also really like how we uncover more and more about each character as the story progresses and they get to know each other better; as if we’re getting to know them too and that’s always such a fun experience that I look for in novels. Mia Hoddell does everything so well in her novels from the plot, to character building, and I’m so sad that this is going to be the last in the series! I can’t wait to check out the rest of her works though!
