Closed Set by Julia Harlow
Read May 2015
Cassandra Carlson is working on her five-year plan. A professional dancer, she moved to Los Angeles after college to work at her best friend’s Hollywood dance studio. She decides she can put up with the glitterati for the time being until she saves enough to open her own studio back home in Cincinnati.
When soon-to-be A-list British actor, Christopher Edwards, comes to her for dance lessons for his new film, the attraction is instantaneous and intense. Both are young, available and beautiful, but while she finds Hollywood garish and superficial, he’s on the brink of realizing his life’s ambition with no inclination for a serious relationship. Or so he thinks.
Just when their white-hot desire can no longer be denied, a jealous actress targets Cassandra in an insidious scheme, and a powerful studio head poses a formidable threat to them both. Cassandra puts herself in jeopardy in order to protect Christopher, but will she lose him in the process?
Closed Set was a little different then what I was expecting. I was thinking more along the lines of a sweet romance; dance teacher meets and falls in love with up and coming big time actor. However what I got was something a little different.
When I started the story it was ended in the direction of a sweet romance. Then things slowly start to heat up pretty quickly. Cassandra, our virgin dance teacher, seemed to really rush to the sex with Chris. She came across in some of the scenes as more experienced then she should have been.
Chris seemed nice enough, and then does wrong by Cassie not once, twice but three times. He clearly had some issues. Why she should stay with him is beyond me. But they did get a sort of happy ever after so that was nice.
