My Rating - 5 Stars!
In The Spotlight is a fantastic read by Shona Husk! This is my first time reading anything by Shona and I loved it!
Ripley is so much fun, just full of life and attitude. When he meets Pierce, a closeted Navy sailor, the attraction is instant. Both men are going through some issues in their lives though.
Ripley dreams of playing the Prince in Swan Lake onstage someday, but he's also struggling with his future, as he's afraid he's going to develop Huntington's Disease like his father. And when he becomes injured, he is at even more of a crossroads.
Pierce is living a lie, continuing to lie to his friends about his sexuality. It has never been easy for him, but when he meets Ripley it proves to be even more difficult.
Two weeks. They will be in the same place for two weeks and decide to spend that time together. Knowing the time will be short will prevent either from heartache, but they know it still wouldn't be easy to say goodbye.
When the feelings become more real, they have some decisions to make. They live in different countries, Pierce travels with his Navy job, and can they make a closeted relationship work between them.
I found myself sucked into this book immediately, completely intrigued and falling for these men. The writing style is quick, emotional and so much fun.
Definitely check out In The Spotlight, as Shona Husk has a winner with this story!
