Up-and-coming Broadway actor Jeremy was given two days to get up and get out. Dumped by his long-term boyfriend and suddenly homeless, he needs a sofa and a sympathetic ear, stat.
Enter Max, aspiring makeup artist and Jeremy’s BFF and former roommate.
Max has been in love with his best friend forever. Now that Jeremy is back in his home, his old feelings are back, too. He’s happy to help his friend, but this time…it’s complicated.
When Jeremy gets his big break in a new show, the message of the play hits home. “Live life to the fullest” means recognizing how he really feels about Max, and that’s not complicated at all. Jeremy’s in love, and wants to move full steam ahead.
But Max has waited too long for Jeremy to look at him this way, and he doesn’t want to risk his heart. If this is just a rebound fling, or if Jeremy is only interested in Max because he’s convenient, it will not only shatter him—it will ruin the best friendship he’s ever known.

I really enjoyed Kate McMurray's See The Light. This friends to lovers romance is riveting and compelling from the start.
I immediately feel for Max and Jeremy, with my heart hurting for Max, as he's secretly in love with his best friend. As their romance evolves, this tale wonderfully navigates the struggles involved with such a change in a relationship. We get to read about the fears, confusion, and doubts. I appreciate the way the transition isn't seamless for them. It definitely gives their story an authentic feel.
It takes place in NYC, in the world of Broadway theater. The Broadway aspect is entertaining, from both the actor side, as well as the makeup artist side.
See The Light ultimately involves a whole lot of risk and trust. I love the title and it's significance. Kate McMurray excels in this emotional journey.
